Prayers for Divorce

Prayer Of A Husband Hurt Through Divorce

Father God, what can I say? My wife has walked out on me saying that she can’t stand to be with me and that she no longer loves me. How can this be? I worked so hard to provide for everything that she wanted, but now that times are hard, she wants me out of her life forever, and has asked for a divorce.

Forgive me, Lord, for my part in this rift that has developed between my wife and me. Perhaps I put too much weight on providing for the comforts of life, without being the loving comforter she may have needed. Perhaps I looked too much outside the walls of my home for my own comforts too, and became too easily flattered by others who seem attracted to me.

Forgive me for letting my marriage fail to the point where we may be separated, and even divorced. But thank You Lord, for all You did for me at the cross of Calvary. I know that there is no sin that I have committed in thought, word or deed that was not dealt with by the cross, for we are told that the only sin that cannot be forgiven is unbelief in Jesus, and I trust in Jesus Christ as my Saviour. 

Lord, I pray that our marriage will not end in divorce, but that by Your grace You would bring us back together again, to start afresh, with You at the helm of our home, rather than with me thinking I had to prove myself. Thank You, Jesus, for being there for me.


Christian Woman’s Prayer For Peace Of Mind

Loving Father, my husband has divorced me and I am so full of pain and sadness. I went into my marriage for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness or in health, and expected it to continue until death parted us, but the emotional and economic strains on our marriage became so heavy that it caused us to separate and finally to divorce. Although my husband took the decision to divorce, against my desire, I admit that some of the fault must lie at my door too.

Lord, I know that divorce is hateful to You and certainly not Your will for any of Your children, for You made man and woman to join them together in marriage as one, just as Christ Jesus is joined together with the Church as one, and I feel that having gone through this divorce is a violation of Your will for my life.

Feelings of guilt keep coming into my heart and I have even thought that my part in the divorce would cause You to reject me as Your child. But Lord I know that the Bible tells me that all my sins, including any that are connected with my divorce, were all forgiven at the cross, even any future sins that I may commit, were all dealt with by the blood of Christ Jesus my Saviour.

Thank You, Lord, that I am Your child. Remove any lingering doubts I pray, and fill my heart with Your joy and peace. Heal my pain and sadness and thank You Lord, that nothing in heaven or earth can separate me from the Love of God that is in Christ Jesus my Lord, including my divorce, for which I praise Your name. Help me to live my life from this day forward in a way that is pleasing to You. In Jesus' name,


For Strength During An Unwelcome Divorce

Loving Father, my heart is heavy as I am having to face a divorce I never wanted and feel not only alone, but such a failure in my marriage.

Lord, when we made our marriage vows to each other, I never contemplated the thought of separation, and certainly not divorce. Lord, I was sure that You had brought us together and now my whole life seems to be shattered, and we are more like strangers than husband and wife.

Help me Lord. Give me the strength and the courage to face this sadness in my life. Keep me Lord from bitterness, and may I face the proceedings with calm dignity and not acrimony or hostility. There is much pain in my heart, Lord. I pray that You will keep me from nursing any wounds and that I would emerge from this ordeal closer to You.

Thank You, that You have promised to be with me through all the storms of life. Lead me in the path that You have planned for me, I pray. In Jesus' name,


Parents Prayer For A Married Son Facing Divorce

Gracious God and Heavenly Father, we rejoiced so much when our dear son was married to his lovely bride, but how sad that things have deteriorated to the point that they are going through a divorce. Lord, this is not what we would have chosen and I am sure that this is not Your perfect will for their lives. Keep us Lord, from criticising what they are planning to do, and may we be both a present and a prayerful support for our son and daughter-in-law, at this difficult time.

Father, You know whatever the problem is between them, and I pray that both of them will seek Your face before going through this irreversible decision. Lord, we pray that in Your grace and mercy You would move both their hearts to rethink this decision, and may Your Holy Spirit convict their hearts and bring to mind the marriage vows they made to each other, in Your presence.

Be with us all in the days that lie ahead, and help us to keep our trust in You, knowing that all things work together for good to those that are Your children. In Jesus' name we pray,


Parents Prayer For Their Married Daughter

Father, it is with great sadness that we come before You, knowing that our precious daughter has decided to divorce her husband. Oh Lord, this must grieve Your heart as it does ours, and we pray that they both may consider working this through together, to try to reconcile their differences.

Protect our little grandchildren, we pray, and ask that they may not be hurt or emotionally damaged by all that must be going on in the home at the moment. 

Lord, we know that things in this world are hard and that marriage is not the bed of roses that the pop songs and romance novel make it out to be. But a good marriage partnership has to be worked at from both sides, and often for a lifetime, if the result is to be the depth of mutual love that we know is possible, for those that are in Christ.

Prevent them from rushing into divorce too quickly we pray, and give them both the grace and the wisdom to seek You and Your will for their lives. May they be reconciled with each other, and with You, and draw ever closer to the Lord Jesus. Pour out Your love and peace and forgiveness into their hearts and renew a right relationship between them we pray. In Jesus' name,


The Turmoil Of Divorce For A Battered Wife

God, help me I pray. I have tried to be a good wife for many years and to stay with my husband and to be the wife he wanted, but things are just going from bad to worse. His drinking and other habits are becoming so difficult to cope with, that I feel the only course of action is to go through a divorce.

It saddens me, as I love my husband Lord, but I fear for what he is likely to do to the children and to me when he becomes so aggressive. Protect us Lord, protect the children I pray, and help us to escape from this bitter marriage.

Help me Lord. Show me what to do. Lead me through this painful process and bring me out the other side I pray. I will trust in You and not be afraid. Thank You that You are always there for me.


Welfare during my divorce

Prayed for 112 time. I Prayed For This
I have been married to my husband for 27 years. It was never the best marriage but I stayed for our two children. They are both married and my eyes opened up, and all I saw was how unhappy I was. After much cruelty and mental abuse, I left and have filed for divorce. My husband changed the locks on the doors and has caused much distress with my two children saying he will cut them off if they testify against him. He is paying for our daughter's college. I live with my daughter and her husband while I'm waiting for the court date to arrive. He has tried to pay me to stay with him, offered me to come back. We don't talk to each other, just live together, until one of us dies. He has threatened to go to my church family with lies and so much more to try and make me look bad. He says he's sorry for all he has done but in the next breath he tells me off. I just want to live again and be truly and honestly happy. I faked it all these years so others wouldn't know. I'm asking God to give me beauty for ashes. I want to know what it's like to be happily married. I pray that God blessed me to find my happiness!!!

Prayed for 39 time. I Prayed For This
Lord, I don't even know where to begin! I have been legally divorced since 2009 but he only stayed gone two months and we got back together. Lord you know I need you now! We have been together for 16 years and he has always had relationships with other women via text, facebook and e-mail but this last time he has a relationship with my ex-best friend. I just have a hard time dealing with the hurt from both of them. We do have a 13-year-old son together and I just pray that God will show him this is wrong. I'm unsure how much my child really understands even after I have talked with him. I just don't want him to grow up thinking this is ok. Jesus, I need strength to deal with my ex-taking my child around my ex-friend and acting as this is right. My husband has always told me that I was crazy and could not accept that he had friends so my self-esteem is running on empty and I do doubt myself. God I ask you that you just come into my home and take over, make me and my child new again, take all the negativity away and heal the scars from all of the emotional abuse, and give me strength in Jesus name Amen!

Help in the midst of seperation/divorce

Prayed for 60 time. I Prayed For This
My husband and I have been separated a few years. And in the midst of the separation things have truly been complicated. Now seven years have passed. My husband has been in a relationship with another woman during these seven years. I'm asking for prayer and guidance because I need God's help in moving forward with our divorce. My husband always avoids talking to me when it comes to discussing the divorce. He claims I should be quiet and not be so ungrateful that we are still married. I truly need guidance and I want to do what right according to God's will.
