Prayer for Marriage Reconciliation

"A rope made from three strands of cord is hard to break." (Ecclesiastes 4:12, CEV).

Even through the darkest days, the Lord is committed to your marriages renewal and success. This page has a beautiful prayer poem for marriage reconciliation, as well as a prayer for marriage restoration after the tragedy of adultery. There is also a short daily prayer to pray with your partner, and a prayer for healing in a relationship:-

A prayer for marriage reconciliation

(a prayer to save a marriage in trouble)

O Lord,

We have drifted so far from the shore of the love and deepest commitment we made.
Help us to remember the feel of dry land, our feet on forgiveness, the foundation we laid.
The sea is so salty around us, it’s heavy with suffering and pain.
Come, re-touch our lips with the sweet kiss of youth, with hopes and with dreams once again.

Our small boats sense danger, we’re weaker apart and breakers of fear crash on our sides.
Please steer us both gently to meet in a harbour, to find time and space to new peace come alive.
We used to set sail in our boat “unity”, to work as a team to be friends.
Please help us to mend and repair this great ship so it sets out to sail once again.

Till each crack is mended with your gift of love, till the scratches are cleansed clean away.
Till the hull leaks no water, no rising despair, till the deck is repainted, the fabric replaced.
Till our cupboards are stacked with new food and provision, our ropes, lights and anchor so new.
Till our maps and our charts are refound and reopened, and we entrust our precious marriage to you.

Prayer for Couples

An uplifting prayer for the strengthening and covering of a marriage relationship:-

Prayer for marriage restoration after adultery

Dear Lord,

Our single bond of trust, of loyalty, of intimacy, of exclusiveness and being one is broken.
We cannot change the past, we cannot pretend nothing happened, we cannot erase the hurt, the anger, the regret, the betrayal. Yet we come before you, knowing that you Jesus, took these painful, sinful, and fallen things to the cross. We know that your grace is strong to forgive, mighty to save and deep enough to cover and cleanse.
So we ask that you take us on a new journey of restoration, that you might fashion for us, with us, a new bond on trust. A bond that is stronger for the mending, wider with forgiveness, and more beautiful for the flaws. We cannot do this alone, we need you Jesus in the very midst of our brokenness.

Prayer for Married Life

a daily prayer for married life:- Daily Prayer for Marriage

The real act of marriage takes place in the heart, not in the ballroom or church or synagogue. It's a choice you make - not just on your wedding day, but over and over again - and that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife.

Barbara De Angelis (American writer)

prayer for healing a relationship

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.
