The following prayers are for you  to pray for restoration of your marriage and also a prayer that you can pray to restore the marriage of others.

Marriage Restoration

As Christians we go through difficult times in our marriages much like the unsaved world.  However the one thing we have is our Savior Jesus Christ whom we go to with our marriage restoration prayers.

He is waiting on us to come to Him and allow Him to work in our lives.  The word of God says “Whom God has joined together let no man put asunder”.  Therefore, it is His will that your marriage should work.  When you go to Him in prayer keep this in mind so that you do not doubt that this is His will for your life.

There are times when even after you’re prayed these prayers for restoration of your marriage it still does not get restored.  Well, there are several things you need to keep in mind:

  1. Are you both saved?  If not then you need to look at the Prayer of Salvation also know as the Sinners Prayer
  2. God wants what is best for both of you so you need to be open to where He will lead you.  You should both be praying through this process and confessing your sins so that there is nothing standing in the way of your answered prayers.


Here is the Marriage Restoration Prayer that can be prayed for someone that you know who may ask you to pray for them.

Lord, I come in the name of Jesus asking that you to make a way in this wilderness of healing and restoration for ________ (name of wife & husband) in their marriage.  Lord, that your grace is sufficient to carry them through difficult times, your power is made perfect in their weaknesses and the power of Christ is in them. 2 Corinthians 12:9 As Christians, greater is You that is in _____________ (name of wife & husband) than the evil one in the world because your power is greater than the power of Satan and all who do his work. 2 Chronicles 32:7 I am so thankful that You are watching to make certain that your Word is fulfilled and that You are performing it in our marriage. Jeremiah 1:12 Thank you that you will complete the work that you started in this marriage. Philippians 1:6 O Sovereign LORD, you are God! Your words are trustworthy, and you have promised these good things to me. You have said that You will build a home for them and that it pleases You to bless their marriage so it will continue before You forever. You have spoken, and with your blessing, this home and marriage will be established with blessings forever.  II Samuel 7:25-29

Lord, I pray that you will allow healing and reconciliation to take place. That whatever hurts or disappointments they have experienced can be mended through the power of your undying eternal Love. We realize Father that they cannot change anything that has happened. But, they can go forth together keeping, renewing and once again honoring their vows.  We ask that you endow them with wisdom to endure and a tongue that speaks healing, restoration & peace.

Abba, I ask that you would mend their hearts closely together and be the center of their marriage. Lord we ask that they seek forgiveness for any wrong doing. We pray that they extend love and patience to one another and that the lines of communication, sensitivity as well as understanding are once again opened. We ask that you will allow all the pain, hurt and disappointment to begin to subside. Lord we ask that forgiveness is welcomed by each of them. Lord we ask that you would allow your JOY to flow once again from heart to heart between them. Father we ask that you direct them as they seek you first in building trust, transparency and intimacy. Father we pray peace over their household, in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Here is a Prayer for Restoration of Marriage that you can pray for yourself.

Almighty Father, You are omniscient, omnipotent and able to do things that are impossible for man.  I humble myself before you today Lord and ask you to restore my marriage.  Please bring my wife/husband back to me so that we can fulfill Your word that those whom You have joined together let no man put asunder.  Forgive me for my part of sin in this separation and show me what I need to do to restore my relationship with You and my relationship with her/him.  I Pray, O Lord, to reunite us in Jesus name.  Please have mercy upon us O God and I will always be thankful to You for restoring my marriage .  I ask for the forgiveness of our sins. I pray for all those people who are may have come in between our relationship that you would set them on the right path and reveal to them the truth of your Word. I freely offer my forgiveness to them for their part in this separation.  Fill us all with your Holy Spirit and guide us into your truth.  I forgive my spouse for all the past hurt and pain and pray that you would cleanse my mind and my heart from carrying any thoughts that are not from you, in Jesus Name, Amen


We pray that the Lord will honor your prayer and that He will indeed restore you marriage according to His word.  Please visit us again and take some time to look around our site for more Prayers.  God Bless you and keep you and cause His face to shine upon you and grant you His peace.

    Please pray for Thinesh and me. We have been together 4 years now. We have both made a lot of mistakes in our relationship. He lied and cheated and then to retaliate I lied to him and did things he didn’t want me to do. I went through depression and still am struggling with it. I see how stupid and silly I behaved and I have repented to The Lord and to him. But he’s angry with me and does not want to forgive me. He says he doesn’t even want to see my face and has no feeling a for me sexually. Every day is a struggle with me in tears all night. I’m praying for complete healing and restoration between us. I’m praying for both of us to be at peace with each other and for our relationship to be restored to the joy we once shared. He used to always tell me that I am the woman he always wanted to marry and he had been waiting for a woman like me. But now he doesn’t even want to come near me. This is breaking me. Please pray for us for peace, healing, forgiveness and love to be grow and blossom between us once again. In Jesus name.

      Hello Harin, are you currently married to Thinesh? This prayer is only for married couples. You would need another prayer if you are not married to each other. God bless you.

    My husband and I have been seperated for four months now. I recently learned he has been involved with another woman for a long time. Even before we seperated. I love my husband with all my heart. I pray that he ends his affair and puts forth an effort to save our marriage. We have two young children and I pray my family is made whole again. I pray that my husband seeks the Lord for forgiveness so he can find true happiness again with his family. I pray all this in Jesus’s Name. Amen

    I left my husband less than a month ago with our son. My husband is a troubled man and his sin was getting in the way of our wellbeing. I love him, but I am a child of the most high God will not subject our child or myself to his sin. God can do the impossible, and it’s all up to God’s perfect timing. Whoever reads this, please pray for our little family. I don’t want to specify his sin or mine because sin is sin and Jesus already won this battle. This is just another waiting room in life..where patience is learned and faith is strengthened. Please pray for God’s peace to fill my anxious heart to give me the courage to teach our son God’s eternal love and for the restoration of our marriage. Pray for my husband’s heart so the Lord can crumble his stone cold heart and make him feel again. To fill him with God’s love and joy. Pray for us.

    I was married for 11 years with 2 children, it has been a long painful separation which was final in Dec 2013. I love my husband, he was not saved and would not even try. He battled alcohol, lust and drugs. Well he finally hit bottom, I had to stay distant bc I tried for years to help but only made it worse because it made him hate himself more which caused more guilt. He always told me we were better off without him. Now he moved in with a woman less than 4mo ago and they are getting married in June. He goes to church and claims to be saved, has stopped drinking and the other. My prayer is and has been to restore our family in Jesus name. I knew he had to find Jesus by himself and without me. I know he does not love this woman, He only moved in with her bc he was homeless and had turned his family against him. I know I have battled a great deal in my marriage but I have also knew God had BIG plans for us.

    I am married to an unsaved man he has moved out of our home. I have been on a 14 day fast asking God to save Carl and restore our marriage. 7 days into the fast he tells me he is done with the marriage. And this is not the only fast that I have been on. I asked him if there is another woman he said no. I do not know what to believe but GOD knows all. I love my husband and I want my marriage the things that he is unhappy with can be worked out but he needs to be saved 1t. then we can work on us. But I do want GOD’s will for us.
