Please help me to be a better wife. I want to be patient and kind, thoughtful and understanding. Please guide me in my interactions with my husband so that we can grow closer together instead of drifting apart as so many couples do. Give us the wisdom to know how to navigate each other’s personalities, which can sometimes be difficult in marriage. Please keep us safe from harm and always give us strength when we need it most; especially when it comes to conflict resolution or grief over the loss of loved ones who have passed on before them (i.e., grandparents). Amen!
I come to You today with a heavy heart.
- Pray to God
- Pray with a sincere heart, not just out of duty or obligation. You don’t have to be happy in order to pray, and you don’t have to feel like it, either. Just remember that prayer is talking to God and He will listen! No matter how bad your situation may seem right now, there is always hope for better days ahead if you trust Him enough. So just talk about whatever’s on your mind — share some of your struggles with Him, ask for His guidance and direction … just talk! He cares about what’s going on inside of us as much as He cares about what goes on outside of us (and sometimes even more).
- Pray in faith — believe that what we’re asking for is possible; believe that God can work it out; believe that our marriages are worth fighting for; believe we can make things better together than apart. If one person believes strongly enough then it becomes easier for both people involved because they’ll start seeing new possibilities where there weren’t any before.”
My marriage is in trouble and my husband and I are struggling.
Marriage is a covenant. A covenant is a commitment to God and one another. Marriage is a covenant between two people, their families and communities, and God. In order to maintain this covenant you must be intentional in your desire to love each other fully as Christ loves the Church (Ephesians 5:25-28).
You must choose to love your spouse above all else in life, including yourself (1 Corinthians 13). This is not an easy choice but it can be made stronger with prayer!
Prayer for Married Couples Struggling:
He says he loves me but I don’t feel that love in his actions.
It is normal to feel frustrated and disappointed in your husband. You have every right to expect him to love you, but he has chosen not to do so. It may be hard for you to understand why he would choose another woman over you, especially when she may not even treat him well. You need God’s help more than ever now! He is the only one who can restore a marriage and make it last forever.
Your husband might be thinking about his affair or new relationship all the time, but he doesn’t want his wife finding out about it because she will be angry and hurt—and maybe even leave him if she finds out how far apart they’ve grown emotionally since they got married twenty years ago! So pray that God will show both spouses what they need most during this difficult season: understanding from each other’s perspective without being defensive or blaming one another; patience with each other while working through disagreements; forgiveness of offenses committed against them through no fault of their own; mutual respect as equals who share responsibility for raising children together under Christ’s example (Ephesians 5:21-33).
He seems disconnected from me and our family.
Your heart is heavy right now. You’re struggling with marital issues, and you don’t know what to do. It’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I want to encourage you by reminding you that God can restore your marriage if you call upon Him and ask Him for help. When we trust in God, He will give us wisdom and direction as we walk through trials (Proverbs 3:5).
The Bible says that “God intends us to be happy” (1 John 5:11), but sometimes our circumstances prevent us from experiencing this happiness in our marriages because of sin or unmet expectations between a husband and wife. Even after being married for many years, it may still take time for a couple’s relationship to grow into something more fulfilling and beautiful than either partner imagined possible when they first said “I do.” If this describes where your marriage is right now, please know that God has not abandoned you! He can help both of you become who he wants each one of you be – individually and together as husband/wife teams (Romans 12:1-2).
He will also equip those closest who love him with the ability ‘to comfort our hearts’ during times like these (Romans 1:11-12) – friends who are committed themselves; spouses who know how difficult this struggle may seem but still choose support over criticism; siblings who understand what it means simply because they’ve lived it too!
we reached out to him but he pushed us away.
If you’re in a marriage where one or both of you is struggling, it’s important to remember that God can help. He has promised us in His Word that He will never leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). We know from Scripture and from personal experience that when we reach out to Him, He is there for us. As a Christian married woman myself, I know how difficult it can be sometimes to trust God fully when your husband isn’t behaving as he should—but God wants you all the same!
So if your husband isn’t doing what he should be doing in your marriage, pray for him—and don’t stop praying until he does change his ways! Remember that prayers cannot change people; only God can do that. But asking for help and guidance doesn’t hurt either!
My husband doesn’t attend church anymore and I am at my wits’ end trying to connect with him.
- Pray for your husband to return to church.
- Ask the Lord to work on his heart and draw him closer to God, you and your children.
- Ask God to show him how valuable he is through His eyes, not just yours or anyone else’s.
God, I know You are the one who brought us together and I believe this was Your plan for our lives.
God, I know You are the one who brought us together and I believe this was Your plan for our lives. I believe that you can restore my marriage to me if we will both seek to grow closer to You each day. Lord, please help me to be a better husband so that my wife may want to be with me again.
Lord, please help my wife see the changes in me and how much I love her and want our family restored; help her find hope again when all seems lost. We pray for protection over our family during this time of transition as well as peace during this difficult time of rebuilding trust between us. Thank You for loving us enough not just to save us but also restore what has been broken in our relationship
I pray for a restoration of our love for one another, as well as our connection with You, God.
I pray for a restoration of our love for one another, as well as our connection with You, God. I know that this will only come through Your grace and mercy. We have both been unfaithful to You and each other, but there is hope in repentance. Please forgive us of all our sins and restore us to one another so that we can be the helpmates that You intended us to be.
I need Your strength to help me be the wife that You want me to be.
- Be patient.
- Be kind.
- Forgive your husband immediately when he hurts you, and don’t hold a grudge against him.
- Pray for him daily and ask God to help him become more like Jesus Christ in the way that he treats you and other people, including his children if he has any.
Don’t give up on your marriage or on yourself!
And I pray for the Holy Spirit to work on my husband’s heart and draw him closer to You and our family.
You are the Holy Spirit, and You are our Helper. You work in us and through us. We don’t know what to pray for or how to pray for it because we don’t have God’s mind (1 Corinthians 2:14). But you do! So please work on my husband’s heart, Lord. Draw him closer to You and our family with your love and comfort (Romans 8:26).
Allow him to see his value through Your eyes and open his heart up to You so he can fully experience Your love, peace, hope, and joy that can only come from You.
God’s love is unconditional, everlasting, never-ending, always there for you and a place of rest. That’s what God’s love is like.
Ask God to help your husband see his own value through Your eyes. Open his heart up to You so he can fully experience Your love, peace, hope & joy that can only come from You.
God can restore your marriage if you call upon Him.
God is the only one who can restore your marriage. Don’t wait for your husband or for anyone else to come along and fix it. You need to ask Him for help and then believe in His promises. God will answer your prayer and help you no matter how long it takes, but if you don’t pray, He won’t force Himself on you.
Some people have sought out advice from books, self-help seminars, psychics or other spiritual advisors looking for answers as well as ways to save their marriage without turning back to God first. Don’t get me wrong—there are some things that psychics can tell us about ourselves and our futures that may help us make better decisions in our lives (but they aren’t infallible). However, when it comes down to fixing something as complicated as marriage issues between two imperfect people (which all marriages have), there’s only one person who can truly deliver: The Lord Almighty himself!
I pray that you have found this article helpful to you. Remember that God is faithful and He will hear your prayers no matter how long it takes. Keep praying and don’t give up!
