Dear Lord Jesus I am sad that I have had to go through the sadness of a divorce and pray that You will comfort and strengthen me.
Thank You that no matter what has happened and what I may face in the future – You are always there to lead and to comfort to help and to provide. Thank You that You know all the in’s and out’s – the up’s and the down’s of our various lives.
Father I am Your child and I place my life anew into Your hands and ask that You grant me the grace to foster a loving heart of forgiveness – the comfort to still my anxious heart and the strength to keep on keeping on through this sad and difficult time of divorce.
Strengthen my heart I pray and enable me to get on with my life with You at the helm of my little boat – and give me wisdom to trust You to beautify my inner heart so that it does not harbor any bitterness or jealousy.
I ask this is the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for me on Calvary’s tree. In Whose name I pray,
Loving Lord, we praise You for the works of Your hand, for You are our great Creator of the world and all that is in it –and we bless You for creating man and woman in Your own image and likeness.
Thank You for uniting us together in the bond of marriage, so that we can be to the other a God-given helper, an encourager and a lover. Thank You for the blessings this unique union affords – we are indeed fearfully and wonderfully made.
Give us I pray a long and fruitful life together, I pray and may we grow in grace together and in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus.
May our home be a place of security and rest, where You are the head of our house, the unseen guest at every meal and the silent listener to every conversation.
Dear Lord, my marriage has almost fallen apart and I hardly know when things started to go wrong. Things have become increasingly difficult and fraught and the love that we once had for each other seems to be dying. I hate the thought of divorce and was shocked when it was first suggested – and I come to You, Lord, asking that You guide and direct us both in this increasingly hurtful situation.
Lord I don’t want us to separate or get divorced. I pray that in some wonderful way You will use this as a wake-up call for us both to seek You with all our hearts – and to change the way we treat each other. I pray that we may begin to apply proper biblical principles in our marriage, rather than dragging each other down by what we say – or don’t say.
Lord I know that by my attitude and actions I have not been the husband / wife that You would have wanted me to be, but rather have not considered my spouse in the way that would please You.
I pray that it may not be too late for reconciliation and ask that in Your grace and mercy You would enable us both to move forward together, by placing You in Your rightful position, as ultimate head of our family.
Protect the innocent parties in our failing marriage and forgive me for all my foolish actions. Make me the man / woman that You would have me to be – in Jesus name I pray,
Precious Lord, I feel that my heart is breaking as I have found that my spouse has been cheating on me. The pain is so deep and I just feel numbed by everything that has happened. Father I have come to realise that strictly speaking there is no ‘guilty party’, for when a marriage falls apart some of the ‘blame’ must lie at each of our doors – for allowing our relationship to become stale or for being too busy or disinterested to notice that we were drifting part.
Forgive me Lord for my part in our deteriorating marriage and help me also to forgive as You forgave me – unconditionally and with such deep love.
Help us Lord I pray, to rebuild our life together – to build up the broken fragments of the love we once had for each other and to start afresh without fear of blame and in newness of love.
May we both be prepared to listen to Your voice of correction and instruction and take to heart Your words of kindness and forgiveness.
