10 Healing Prayers for a Healthy Relationship

All relationships suffer through their difficulties and challenges. These healing prayers for a healthy relationship serve as the perfect source of inspiration for finding peace and comfort with your spouse.

Prayer #1

Father,

Thank you for your great love for us. You sent your only Son to live with us and show us how to love. He gave His life for us and resurrected on that third day so that we could also be with you in eternity!

Lord, to feel just an inch of the radiance of your love and the glow from your excellence will be more than we can imagine. Knowing your love for us is humbling too.

We are imperfect humans moving around on this Earth day to day attempting to live lives that are worthy of the calling you have on us. We need your guidance and direction.

Thank you Father that no matter where our hearts are you are always reaching out to love us unconditionally! You are the ultimate example of love and we are so grateful for that!

In Jesus’ Holy name we pray,
Amen.

Prayer #2

Heavenly Father, Lord of our hearts, You see us, You know us, You love us and protect us. I pray that You will bless our relationship and lift us up in service to You as Christians and as the people you want us to be.

I ask that Your Holy Spirit sanctify us individually and as a couple, for the joy of working together to glorify You and Your church.

Lord, show us the path to service, heal any fractures in our relationship now or in the future, and build a hedge of protection around us, to guard us from outside forces that might try to attack us. Make this a godly, righteous relationship of two people engaged in loving and serving You and Your chosen people.

I thank You, Lord, for the faith You’ve given me to know that this is true – that You protect, You guard, You guide, and You love us.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

Prayer #3

Almighty God,

You see our shortcomings and difficulties; please have mercy on us. Strengthen and heal our relationship. We are weak, but you are the divine healer and strengthener of all hearts and souls.

Guide us to do Your will in this world, to love and respect each other, and to be your representatives among the people. Bless us with a peaceful, happy relationship, and help us share our mutual, thriving love with the world.

Bring us together emotionally and spiritually for the good of those whose lives we touch, and for the greater good of humankind. Thank you for your kindness toward us, frail as we may be, and for the strength of Your Loving Spirit manifesting in our hearts.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen

Prayer #4

Dear Father,

You have always been at the centre of our relationship, for it is built on the foundation of your love and grace. We find ourselves struggling daily to get along, we are under pressure and we see conflict and disillusionment between us.

Please Lord, help us to come to you moment by moment, day by day, and surrender all our difficulties to you. Fill us with your wisdom and understanding as we sift through the many strains and disagreements we face. Come strengthen us by your Spirit as we lean on your mighty power. May we always find new grace, forgiveness and understanding for one another.

We ask all this in the name of Jesus, our beautiful Saviour and friend.
Amen.

Prayer #5

Heavenly Father, thank You for the many gifts and graces You give to Your children and for the people that come into our lives who mean so much to us. Thank You for the sweet fellowship we enjoy with brothers and sisters in Christ – and Lord how good it is to walk when members of Your body live together in love and unity.

Deepen we pray the bond of fellowship within the body of Christ and may our hearts be knit together in love – in Christ Jesus. Forgive us for the times when our fleshly natures has broken or damaged the precious relationship we have with each other – in Christ, and keep us we pray walking in love, knowing that we are a spiritual house – joined together as one in Him.

Thank You Lord for those special people and relationships you have placed in my life with whom I enjoy a close bond of unity and may we encourage and edify each other as we wait for the any day return of the Lord Jesus in the air to claim His church for Himself. May we all draw ever closer to each other and to You as we see the day of Your return approaching, we ask this in Jesus name,
Amen

Prayer #6

Heavenly Father, I bring before you this increasingly difficult relationship that I am in and pray that by Your grace, I may be willing to learn the lesson that You would teach me through this problematic time. Lord I know that relationships are not always easy, but we seem to have slid into a constant cycle of hostility and accusations. Forgive me for the part I have played in developing this bitterness and ill-feeling between us and I pray that You would help me repent of this wrong attitude – and turn right away from my own natural, fleshly reactions and start to walk in spirit and truth. Lord I know that I cannot do this in my own strength but only in the power of the Holy Spirit. And so Lord, I pray that I may be willing to listen to Your promptings and to submit to Your training and chastening hand on my life.

Help me each day to lay my life before You and to search my own heart so that I may identify any seeds of my own bitterness and hostility – and I pray that I may be honest in my assessment of my own faults and failings. Teach me Your way and endow me with wisdom, grace and counsel – so that the damage to our relationship may be repaired by Your grace. Help me to live my life as the person that You would have me be – and in a manner that is pleasing in Your sight.

Guard my heart and all that proceeds from my lips and may my words be seasoned with salt and pleasing to the Father. Thank You Lord that You are a God Who hears and answers the prayers of Your children and I pray that you would graciously renew a right spirit, within this relationship – in Jesus name I pray,
Amen

Prayer #7

Father God I come to You in earnest pray asking that You would bring my future life-partner and “help-meet” into my life. Father Your word says that it is not good for a man or a woman to be alone and I ask that in Your grace You would provide me with the person Whom You have chosen to become my special life-partner and friend.

Prepare me I pray in the days and months that lie ahead for this life-partnership and help me to learn the importance of the biblical lessons.. of thinking of others before we think of ourselves. Father, I know that my times are in Your hands and I pray that I will not be impatient but learn to wait for Your best timing. Thank You Lord that You are a God Who hears and answers prayers – and keep me I pray in the centre of Your will in every area of my life.

Father my dear desire is to have a precious life-partner – but in everything including this – I pray THY WILL be done, in Jesus name I pray,
Amen

Prayer #8

Dear Lord,

I promised that I would always love, honour, cherish and respect when I married. Sometimes it is hard to keep these promises.

Please reignite our love where it has faded.
Please help us to communicate our needs and understand one another.
Please help us to remember good times and to cherish new times together.
Please help us to forgive, and also to respect and enjoy our differences.

You are part of our vision, you know us both deeply, only you understand the problems we face.
So we trust in you to restore our love. We choose to live in your promises, to take each day and transform it into a beautiful picture, an intimate friendship, and a testament to your love through us.

Amen.

Prayer #9

Dear Father God, there are so many marriages that are failing, which are leaving relationships devastated, lives fractured and hearts stricken with grief.. and so today we want to lift up all those that are struggling with a marriage relationship that is falling apart – and pray Your healing touch on so many who are facing separation or even divorce. We ask that in Your mercy You would look down in pity and enable many of these fractured lives to be renewed by the touch of your mighty hand.

We lift up all that are in a marriage relationship and pray that You would strengthen the bond of love and unity between them, so that their relationship may become stronger with each passing year. May forgiveness and grace, forbearance and peace become flowers in their heart that blossoms into the fruit of the Spirit in their lives – and may each husband and wife consider the needs of the other before they consider their own.

Establish we pray healthy marriage relationships, which are grounded on biblical principles, where the Lord Jesus is the focus of their lives and the bedrock upon which their marriage is secured. May broken hearts and broken families be reunited in the love of Jesus and may their children rise up and call their parents “blessed” – as they see their parents honouring their Saviour, Jesus Christ our Lord- in whose name we pray,
Amen

Prayer #10

Father, I am seeking first Your Kingdom and righteousness for healthy relationships to be added to me in the workplace. My trust is in You to establish and direct each and every relationship You desire for me. I choose you as Lord of my life to direct all my ways. Position me to receive all that You have for me, including healthy, God given relationships. Help me to be in right relationship with the ones you choose and to be a blessing and a friend to them.
