Prayer for Relationships Strenthening


Featured on this page are four inspiring prayers for restoration, strength and healing in relationships. To begin with, we have a prayer for married couples or friends where the relationship is broken and needs fixing. The second prayer is a request for the friendship to be restored in God’s love, goodness and strength. Further down are two more prayers – one for family unity and one for reconciliation in a relationship.


Prayer for healing a broken relationship



We’ve been tossed by the seas of resentment and hurt,
And the damage has torn us apart.
O Lord, help us rescue the love we once shared
To mend each damaged feeling and part.

We’ve been pulled in different directions,
Swayed far away from the path.
O Lord, may your light draw us close again,
To find all that we shared in the past.

We have abandoned the love that once grew,
Let it fail, watched it wither and bend.
O Lord, as we open our lives back to you,
Come and tend to our union as friends.

We have just one hope to turn this around,
So Jesus we fall at your feet.
Let hope rise to draw us together as one,
Your healing is all that we seek.

(a prayer for the strengthening of a couples relationship)

As we draw near to you,
Quiet our minds
Refresh our spirits
Inspire our hearts
Bind us together
With your truth.
We dwell in your promise
Rest in your grace
Bathe in your restoration
Meditate on your goodness.
Bind us together
With your love.

An inspiring 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.

Amen.
