Dear Father God, there are so many marriages that are failing, which are leaving relationships devastated, lives fractured and hearts stricken with grief. And so today, I want to lift up all those that are struggling with a marriage relationship that is falling apart, and pray Your healing touch on so many who are facing separation or even divorce. I ask that in Your mercy, You would look down in pity and enable many of these fractured lives to be renewed by the touch of your mighty hand.
I lift up all that are in a marriage relationship, and pray that You would strengthen the bond of love and unity between them, so that their relationship may become stronger with each passing year. May forgiveness and grace, forbearance and peace become flowers in their heart that blossoms into the fruit of the Spirit in their lives, and may each husband and wife consider the needs of the other before they consider their own.
Establish I pray, healthy marriage relationships, which are grounded on biblical principles, where the Lord Jesus is the focus of their lives and the bedrock upon which their marriage is secured. May broken hearts and broken families be reunited in the love of Jesus, and may their children rise up and call their parents “blessed” as they see their parents honouring their Saviour, Jesus Christ. In Jesus' name,
