Father, I have been deeply hurt and grieved because of my spouse’s adultery and the pain at times is more than I can bear. It is so hard to come to terms with the fact that the one person in your life that you are closest to.. and have trusted implicitly, is discovered to be an adulterer who has betrayed the loving trust we have between us.
I lay my brokenness before You and pour out my heart to You, for I have no one to turn to Lord but You.. and I need Your comfort and healing touch to get through this tremendous sadness.
Father.. in my heart I know that if I nurse this grief and continue to feel sorry for myself.. that it is likely to turn into sour bitterness and acidic resentment. Prevent me Lord from going down that self-indulgent route, but rather heal me I pray.
Touch the areas deep within that are still raw with pain; bathe my wounds with Your love and peace.. and bring me through this ordeal, stronger and more able to be of service to You.
Help me to forgive too.. I know that in my own strength this would be impossible, but I ask that You would give me the sufficient grace to forgive their unfaithfulness.. and the ability to remember their sin no more – this I ask in Jesus name,
Lord to my shame I have committed adultery, broken my marriage vows.. both to You and to my spouse and caused untold pain – and I am so sorry Lord and repent of all my sin and the evil consequences of my fleshy weakness.
Lord I confess that I am weak in this area, but that is no excuse and I ask that in the power of the Holy Spirit You would help me to turn right away from this gross and evil sexual sin. Help me to overcome temptation and not to fall prey to the enticements of flesh lusts.
Help me to run from sexual sin as the Bible says, and to break free from any sexual soul-ties that I have made - and keep me I pray, from being tempted to make any further contact. I ask that You would help me to resist all temptation and to help me make a complete break with this ungodly part of my life.
Purify my heart I pray and enable me to turn away forever from this fleshly weakness – which I know must be called for what it is – ungodly sexual sin - adultery. Help me to no longer live for my own gratification but rather I pray that I may be enabled to change my whole behaviour towards my spouse - and live in marriage union with my spouse, as You have outlined in Your Word.
Give us both fresh, new love for each other and may this evil that I have done not become a stumbling-block in our marriage but the start of a new closer fellowship with each other - and with You. This I ask in Jesus name,
Heavenly Father, we come to You to lift up the increasing numbers of couples that are facing adultery in their marriages – both the one that is feeling betrayed and let down by an unfaithful spouse.. and the one that has been foolishly led astray, by sexual sins and the gratification of the flesh.
We ask that You would intervene in all marriages where adultery and infidelity are taking place.. and pray for Your healing hand on every life that is touched by the destructive nature of adultery.. and each marriage that has been impacted and devastated by sexual sins and infidelity in their marriages
We ask You to intervene in each situation where infidelity, fornication and adultery has caused such sadness, pain and loss of trust. We also pray that You would revive the marriages of couples that have gone through the painful discovery that their spouse has been unfaithful and the devastating repercussions that are caused through the adultery of ones marriage partners.
We pray that You would disentangle the web of deceit that is woven through an adulterous relationship and ask that in Your goodness and grace You would touch the hearts of both partners, so that godly repentance may be received with godly forgiveness – we ask this in Jesus name,
Heavenly Father, I have wandered far away from You and become deeply embroiled in an extra-marital affair from which I want to break free.. so that I may get my life back on track. Deliver me I pray from this life of lies and deception.. Deliver me from the guilt and shame that is overwhelming me .. and I pray that in Your grace You would help me to flee every kind of sexual immorality, or of any impurity, or fleshly lust, from this day forward..
I have been weak-willed and careless in my Christian life and utterly foolish and selfish in my own marriage – and my adultery has adversely affected the lives of too many people – deliver me from the shame I feel, for I know that I am guilty on all counts.. and my sin is constantly on my mind -
Lord I confess my fault to You. I pray for Your forgiveness and repent of all my adulterous sins, but I need to ask forgiveness of my spouse.. and all the other people whom I have hurt due to this affair.. and I ask that in Your grace You would help me to do what is right. Oh Lord help and deliver me from the guilt and pain I feel and from the dark cloud of shame that is hanging over me like a shroud. Return to me the joy that I once knew in You.. and lead me in the way of righteousness – in His name sake,
Lord Jesus, I have sinned before You and committed adultery. Forgive me Lord for winking at my own sin while I was gratifying my fleshly lusts. I repent of my wrong actions and foolish choices and confess that I have sinned against You.. and have caused deep distress, not only to my spouse but to the wider family as well.
Help me Lord to live a life from this day on that is pleasing to You, for I choose to turn from my fleshly lusts and sexual sin, which has caused so much grief and pain. I pray that with Your help and strength, I may learn to walk in righteousness and purity from this day on.. and in a manner that is pleasing to You.
I pray that not only my actions but the thoughts of my mind may be cleansed and made pure. Help my inner heart to be purified of all lustful imaginings, which could cause me to be led astray.. and may I learn to bring into captivity every thought, in obedience of Christ.
For all the pain that I have caused to others, and especially to my spouse, I pray that You would heal the hurt and lessen the pain I’ve caused, so that in Your grace we may mend the rift that has come between us and draw closer to each other and to You. This I ask in Jesus name,
Heavenly Father, we lift up this dear man to You who has been so devastated by his wife’s betrayal and her adulterous affair. Lord this is a dear brother in Christ who has been heart-broken by his wife’s betrayal, and we pray that You would touch him at his very point of need and fill his heart with Your special comfort and peace – so that he may know that You are His heavenly Comforter, Who can heal his deepest pain - and that You are his ever present Helper, in this time of deep suffering.
We lift up his straying wife to You too.. and pray that You would touch her conscience, soften her heart bring her to the point of true repentance. We pray that she may recognize her sin and ask his forgiveness, (and for Yours Lord, too) and we pray that she may return her to her marriage relationship, with a better understanding of the unique bond between a man and his wife, which is so precious in Your sight and which can never be replaced or duplicated.
We pray that You would work in both their hearts so that they may not only be reconciled back together, but that they may discover a closeness in their marriage that they had not experienced before. This we ask in Jesus name – to Your praise and glory,
Loving Lord, we come before You today to ask for Your steadfast love and healing comfort on all those that are grieving, as a result of a spouse that has proved to be unfaithful to their marriage vows – but we also pray for those that are blinded to the destructive effect that adultery has on marriages and families.. and pray for godly repentance and a change of heart.. so that there may be a speedy reconciliation between husband and wife..
We pray for restoration and reconciliation in all marriages that have been adversely affected by gross sexual sin and adultery. But we also lift up those who have already repented of their sin of adultery.. and ask that You would be gracious to the husband or wife who broke their marriage vows, but has come to a realisation of the devastating result of their adulterous affair. We pray Your mercy and grace on all who genuinely seek to change their behaviour and have confessed their sin before You.
We pray that in Your grace.. marriages that have suffered from the devastating effect of adultery may be restored, and we ask that through godly repentance on the one hand.. and true forgiveness on the other, You would heal any pain that was caused, release any shame or resentment and draw both partners into a closer marriage union and more intimate relationship with each other - and with You.. this we ask in Jesus name,
Lord, You know that my husband has been living a lie and is deeply embroiled in the sin of fornication and adultery. Father I pray that You would move speedily in this distressing situation.. and I ask that he would stop seeing this other woman.. and that this ungodly relationship will be brought to an end. I pray that You would intervene, as only You can.. to bring this on-going, adulterous relationship to final closure.
Lord.. distressing though this situation is, I know that You are a God who can mend broken relationships and I pray that in Your goodness and grace You would restore our marriage and renew my husbands love for me. I pray that the Holy Spirit would convict him of his sin and that he would turn from his fascination with this other woman to Jesus - for saving grace.
Living in a marriage triangle is getting more than I can bear and I pray that You would give me the sufficient grace I need to deal with this situation.. and the sufficient strength to live godly in Christ Jesus - despite the deep grief and pain I am going through.
I earnestly pray for my husband to turn away from his wicked ways and look to Christ as Saviour, for I know that without Him, my husband will be enslaved to sin and remain without hope in the world.. - lost in his trespasses and wallowing in immoral acts.. Thank You that it is not Your will that anyone should perish.. but that all come to faith in Jesus. Help me Lord, to trust Your good work in both of our lives, and may I learn to wait patiently for You to fulfill Your perfect plan in both our lives.. in Jesus name I pray,
Lord, my wife is cheating on me and it is so painful, and so I come to You in the name of Jesus to not only lay my marriage – but my entire life at Your feet. I pray that in Your grace,. the bond between the wife that I love, and this other man will be shattered completely.. and that You would remove the attraction they have for one another - and break any hold that he may have over her.
Lord I pray that You would do a miracle in the heart of my wife and help her to see how wrong she is to jeopardise our marriage in this way. Convict her of her sin.. and bring her to Your throne of grace in godly repentance, and with a total change of heart. But I also pray that You would do a work in my own heart – because my intense anger and jealousy is boiling within, because the pain is so acute.
Lord I know that marriages today are being attacked by the enemy, but I never thought that I would be affected in this way, with my own wife cheating on me.. but I ask that You would do something to terminate this extra-marital affair and return the wife of my youth into my arms once more – this I ask in Jesus name,
Dear Lord Jesus, my heart is aching as my husband has betrayed me and has found his sexual needs fulfilled in the arms of another – and I am devastated and pray that You would carry me through this intensely painful time.
Lord I feel betrayed and it is a pain that is inexpressible, and I ask You to reach out Your healing arms of comfort and help me to come to terms with what has happened. Lord I know that in everything by prayer and supplication – (and even with thanksgiving) we are to make our requests known to You.. I wish this had never happened.. but it has, and I ask You to show me what to do and how to come to terms with this sadness. Show me I pray, how to move forward and help me to save my marriage.
Lord I know that his adultery is a sin against You as well as me and I pray that my husband will see the error of his way and turn away from this ungodly liaison and seek Your forgiveness – and mine.
I know that You have the power to move mountains and I pray that this great barrier that has been erected between us.. will be removed by Your grace - but I also know that he has to be willing to turn away from his own sin - but I pray that Your Holy Spirit would deeply convict his heart of his serious wrongdoing.
Father I believe that the enemy has been involved in causing my husband to fall into sin.. in this vulnerable area of his life. I believe that the enemy desires to shatter our marriage and leave in its wake many ruined lives and many hurting people, but Lord I pray that the wiles of the enemy may be thwarted and that my husband will turn from his wrong, sexual liaison and adulterous ways - and turn back to a godly way of life. This is my pray Lord.. Help me to come to terms with it. Help me to forgive.. Help me to more forward in my life but also help us to rebuild our marriage on a firm foundation - where You are the One that leads and guides our future life together – this I ask in Jesus name,
Heavenly Father, thank You that I can come to the throne of grace for mercy to find help in time of need and Lord, I come today to ask You to help me to be set free from all sexual sins, including adultery, pornography and anything else that is an abomination to You.
I repent of my fleshly indulgence in sexual gratification, and want.. with all my heart, to break free – as my life is being affected so badly and I know in my heart I am living a lie and dishonouring You - and I don’t want to do that any more.
I know that I cannot do this in my own strength, but I do believe that as I submit to Your Holy Spirit, He will help me to break free from this bondage. Lord make me willing to break free from every area of sexual gratification and help me to say NO as soon as I have any wrong sexual urge.
Cleanse me from the inside-out I pray. I want my body to be a living sacrifice unto You and not a temple for gross sexual sin. I pray that I may become holy and acceptable to You and leave this ungodly part of my life behind - as I press on to the high calling of God in Christ Jesus – this I ask in His name,
Oh God I have been so selfish and foolish and I am ashamed of my sinful behaviour.. and for foolishly seeking for fleshly pleasures outside of the marriage bed. Lord I was flattered that a younger woman who was interested in me, and I allowed myself to lust after the fleeting pleasures of sex, which has led me into fornication and adultery - and I grieve to realise the deep pain I have caused my wife and the whole family,
I never thought that I would ever fall prey to the flattering talk of another woman, but I did not heed to the warning signs and have caused grief to myself, my family, and to so many other people too – but also I know that I have sinned against You, and I confess my fault.. and pray that You would graciously forgive me and return me into fellowship with the Father, and joy in the Lord.
Lord forgive me I pray. I repent of my sin and want turn right away from my ungodly behaviour, and pray that in the power of the Holy Spirit, You would help me. Lord I now know how easy it is to fall prey to sexual sin, but I desire to flee from fleshly lust and to remain pure in body, soul and spirit.
I pray that my wife would find it in her heart to forgive my and take me back – oh graciously look down upon Your servant I pray. I ask that You would enable me to show her that I have truly turned away from my adulterous behaviour and ask that in Your strength I would learn how to live godly in Christ Jesus – this I ask in His name,
Forgive me Lord.., I have sinned against You and followed after my own selfish way. I been drawn away from my husband’s side, who loves me - and whom I love dearly, into the arms of another man, due to my own lustful desires and foolish pride.
I know adultery is so wrong and yet I refused to listen to the warning promptings from within.. even through I knew that out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies – and of course adultery.
I confess my infidelity before You Lord and my sin is ever before me.. and yet I know that You are a gracious God.. Who forgives the sins of Your truly repentant children. Cleanse me from this evil behaviour, which has caused so much heartache and pain for so many different people.
Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow, and in Your grace and mercy, I pray that I may not have destroyed our marriage forever.. but that in Your pity and mercy You would help us to renew our wedding vows, so that we may step out into the future together, strengthened by this painful period but trusting in You to guide us into deeper communion with each other.. and with You.. this I ask in Jesus name,
Heavenly Father, we grieve for the pain that adultery causes in the lives of so many and we particularly lift up this precious sister in Christ, whose heart is aching due to her husband’s betrayal and adultery.
Reach out Your righteous right hand in pity and love we pray, and touch her hurting heart with the comfort that only comes from above. We pray that she may know Your steadfast love shining within her heart and feel Your presence with her, every moment of the day - as she has seeks to come to terms with her husband’s disloyalty.
Lord, she is Your dearly loved daughter and her husband has been drawn away from her side, due to the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eye and the pride of life. Bring this man to the foot of the cross in godly repentance; return him to his rightful mind and heal the brokenness that this dear woman feels in this matrimonial betrayal.
Only You can heal her broken-hearted and free her mind from any destructive imaginations that have been triggered.. and may she see that You are not only with her.. to be her comfort and help, but also that You are working towards a restoration and reconciliation between herself and her husband.
Help her to look to You in all things.. and give her the courage to trust this situation into Your hand – and we pray that in Your time and in Your way You would once again restore to them the joy of being united in love, as man and wife.. this we ask in Jesus name,
