Prayer for the Restoration of Marriage

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 have been praying for Gods restoration upon my marriage,we separated two yrs ago and my husband took another lady to my house and they have a baby together.i really love and respect my marriage plz pray for the restoration ofmy marriage
  4. Chelsea
    My husband and I have been married for a couple of months. We both serve in ministry and that was after he recently became baptized and started walking in his call with Jesus. I could feel him pulling back and found some things he should not be involved in. Instead of talking, which is all i asked to do, he ran. He hasn't been home in weeks, he will not speak to me aside from telling me he needed to move out and decide "if this is what he really wants," and he moved all of his stuff. He is ignoring everyone in his life that is associated with God and only associating with other women and negative influences at work encouraging him to take time and space. I have taken this time to start studying on intercession and have been spending majority of my time storming heaven in prayer. The spirit of intercession falls on me HEAVY and I am trying to ignore any emotions that I feel and just be obedient to God. Please pray with me for him to return to Jesus and to our marriage so that we can walk in what God has called us to do.
