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.

    I know I’ve requested before, but I am feeling down and hopeless. My wife, Stephanie, is still involved in her emotional affair and shows no signs of stopping. We have been married for 22 years and together for 25 years. Since August 14 after her telling me she only wants to be friends and doesn’t see us together she has become very cold and distant. We are currently separated for sanity reasons of my own. She is texting a gentleman named Charles in Washington State and we live in Maryland. I can’t see their relationship going anywhere because she will not leave here to go out there to be with him and I’m sure he wont leave Washington (family and birth place) so where in the world will it go?

    I’m asking the LORD daily to touch my wife’s heart and for her to realize that she needs GOD in her life. I ask for the Hedge of Protection, The Wall of Fire, and the Armor of GOD everyday. It’s only been 9 months since I found out about her affair but it feels like an eternity. I have very few happy days since the discovery and ask the LORD for peace and joy in my life. My therapist tells me I need to stop thinking about her but I truly believe if she would stop we could be happy together again.

    I know it sounds funny but I had a vision while mowing the grass early this year that we would be together; I just don’t know when and it hurts so bad. Please pray for my wife’s salvation and my daughter’s also (she is an adult but doesn’t mean the affair isn’t affecting her, she sides with her mother right now.) Also pray for the restoration of my marriage. I am praying for all marriages in trouble to be healed by the LORD if he deems it his will. Thank you and GOD BLESS.

    Blessed Mary please intercede to God to undo the knots in our family life. Give us the hope, love and faith in god and let my wife join in our family life overcoming all forces working against the family and God. Let she understand god’s love and the indissolubility of marriage sacrament in leading a family life in Christ.

    Grace and peace.
    Please pray for my husband and I.
    We have been married for twenty eight years with two children. The
    For the passed four year I and the children have moved into our new home and he has not move with us.
    I eventually found out he is in a relationship with someone through a prophet of God.
    I confronted him on it and he denies it until now.He don’t come to the house nor answer my calls.
    I believe in God and as in my marriage when God saYsidro who he joined together No man put asunder so I imagine trusting God for his return according to his word.

    I am requesting prayers for my marriage of 16 years to be restored!!! I am praying my husband forgives me for my transgressions against our marriage bed. I am praying for him to forgive me like Jesus forgives us of our sins. I have repented and sinned no more. (Cheating) Please pray that he stays away from temptation. He has had an affair as well. So we both are guilty of adultery. He wants to continue to sin and has turned his back on Jesus. Please pray God show’s him how important it is to stay a family to us and our kids!!!! Thank you! i lift my husband up to Jesus! Jesus I turned my back on you when I had my affair and I am sorry. Satan had a hold on me back then. I pray to be a righteous married couple and family. I love my husband with all my heart!!! So no matter what he does it won’t change how I feel about him! Thanks

    Asking for prayer for repair of my marriage of 30+ years. He was going to leave and changed his mind. Things are up and down. One day I see and feel his love, the next he pulls away. I know there is deep love, we just have to dig deeper. God has helped us through so many ups and downs so I know He is there for us. Appreciate all prayer help.
    Think you and God bless.

    Please pray for my husband Glen, we have been living in the same house but in separate rooms. He moved out of the bedroom 4yrs ago, now he moved into his sister home. He told our daughter that we split up. We have no intimacy relationship for the past 5yrs, even though he was sleeping in the bed,he wasn’t touching me. One day he told me who would want to sleep with me. Please pray for us, open room for us to communicate, rekindle our love and desire for each other. Lord guide us, removed all the bad qualities within us. You witness our marriage, don’t let anyone or anything separate us. Resides within us always. Bless us Lord.
