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,
