Precious Lord, I feel that my heart is breaking, as I have found that my spouse has been unfaithful to me. The pain is so deep and I just feel numbed by everything that has happened. Father, I have come to realise that strictly speaking there is no ‘guilty party’, for when a marriage falls apart some of the ‘blame’ must lie at each of our doors, for allowing our relationship to become stale or for being too busy or disinterested to notice that we were drifting part.
Forgive me, Lord, for my part in our deteriorating marriage and help me also to forgive as You forgave me, unconditionally and with such deep love.
Help us Lord I pray, to rebuild our life together, to build up the broken fragments of the love we once had for each other and to start afresh without fear of blame and in newness of love. May we both be prepared to listen to Your voice of correction and instruction, and take to heart Your words of kindness and forgiveness.
