A contemporary reading of the famous hymn to love by the Apostle Paul:-

prayer for healing a relationship

(for reconciliation and restoration)

Nothing is outside of your redemptive grace O Lord.
Everything that is broken is restorable by your loving hands.
From darkness to light
From sorrow to joy
From death to life -
I ask that you would encompass our relationship with your love.
Take each fragment and bring restoration, forgiveness and reconciliation.
In you everything is possible.
We trust in you
We look to you
We work with you
For peace.
