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,
