A Marriage Prayer For a Deeply Troubled Marriage
The Miracle of Prayer
If a friend or an acquaintance were to approach you and say "Help me save my marriage, or how can I save my marriage?" How many of you would tell this person to try praying about it?
For those of you who might be going through marriage problems or about to be divorced due to infidelity, unselfishness, financial issues and so on, it can be tough trying to take on all the stress all by yourself. However, if you believe in God, and have the faith that He can turn your situation around, why are you not praying to Him, asking Him to help you? According to the writers of the spiritual song entitled " What A Friend We Have In Jesus", we often give up peace and suffer needlessly simply because we tend to leave God out of the picture.
This is what this special verse of this song has to say " Oh what peace we often forfeit, Oh what needless pain we bear, all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer!"
Praying is just the simple act of communicating with God, just in the same manner you usually communicate with others. You are just having a conversation or dialogue with God, asking Him to do you a favor. Go into your bedroom, living room, bathroom, or somewhere where it 's quiet -- get down on your knees and just open up your heart, problems, worries and pain to God. Below is a marriage prayer you can use.
Premarital counseling. Learn how to make God the "foundation" of your marriage; because what God joins together no man or nothing can break asunder! No question about this!
A marriage Prayer
Dear most caring, loving and understanding God, You are already aware of all my marriage problems, worries and pain I am about to take to You in prayer right at this blessed moment. Father God, I have tried my best and have done all that I could possibly do to try to resolve all the issues that have led to this present status of my marriage.
At this point, there is nothing else I can do, so I surrender everything to You! I sincerely plead for your divine intervention! Please take matters in your hands, and do what You have to do to fix my marriage.
Forgive me for the things I have done or unconsciously done that have contributed to this present state of my marriage. If there is anything I should have done at any point and have not done, or should have been doing and haven't been doing, God please forgive me.
Father I know that I am far from being perfect, for this reason, I must admit that I am not blameless. Talk to me, show me what I have to do. Give me the wisdom, knowledge and understanding I need to play my part, day by day.
Touch the heart of my partner, and open up his/her eyes dear Lord. Talk to him/her in a special way so that he/she may obey and be willing to meet me halfway. You know what exactly have changed the once loving, caring and understanding person I have initially married.
The person I stood beside in your Sanctuary in holy matrimony and make my vows to remain with for richer or poorer, and through sickness. The person I have pledged to remain with until death.
Father God, I believe in You and so I trust in You to take care of all my marriage problems. There is no favor too big to ask of You. I know that all I have to do when I pray, is to surrender everything to You and just have the faith to believe You are going to help me save my marriage. I know it has to be done your way and at a time chosen only by You -- so choose your own time and have it your own way great, merciful Jesus. Thank You God. Amen!
