Short prayer for my husband to love me

Dear Father, I am so sad that the love between us has faded. My prayer is for my husband to love me once again. Please work in our hearts, our minds and our spirits that we might rediscover our love for each other. Come rekindle that which has been lost and ignite new passion and admiration between us. Amen.

Prayer for my husband to love me once again
(a prayer asking God for love to return to a marriage when a husband’s affections have grown cold)

Dear Father,

The silence has grown between us, the silence of weary hearts, a nothing left to say sound, where once there was such a spark. So come O Lord, O Spirit come and lift my heart to try, to find new words, new passion, new rhythm. Within my life, come and re-light me, help me to live and awaken his heart.

The vision has faded, dulled by regret, the dust of confusion and doubt. There’s nothing upon our horizons, our eyes are cast down, no longer fixed upon your heart. So come O Lord, O Spirit come and lift our eyes to see, to watch a great adventure open up before us, to find new hopes and dreams. Come and awaken us, help us to live, may we rise up so our beauty is seen.

Our love has become crushed, worn and threadbare. I’ve neglected to mend, renew and to cleanse this devotion that once sparkled with joy. So come O Lord, O Spirit come and uncover this gem, help us to see the beauty again of the “us” that was crafted by heavens command. Come and remind us of the vows that were made, help us to re-find the bride and the groom again.

I ask for your Spirit to move in my heart, that I might now choose to take hold of our precious friendship, that I’ll start to light up, awake and rise up, so that my husband will awake to his love.


Prayer for restoration of a relationship

O Lord,

I feel so sad that this relationship has failed. Help me to have the courage to love again. I trust that as I walk with you, forgiveness will flow in my life.

Your grace is like a river. May that river flow between us and cause restoration in our friendship.

" not arouse or awaken love until it so desires."

(Luke 15:20, CEV, excerpt from the Parable of the Lost Son - Luke 15:11-32)

"And now I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. If you have love for one another, then everyone will know that you are my disciples."
