10 Healing Relationship Prayers for Couples That Are Struggling

Many things in life can derail your relationship off its track. Having the strength and faith to overcome these obstacles are paramount to reaching long-term relationship success. These healing relationship prayers for couples who are struggling will help you open your heart to restoration.

Divine Help Prayer
Father God, there is disharmony in our relationship. We have tried to reconnect, but things seem to be getting worse. Lord, you say in your word that two are better than one, and I believe this to be true. But God, right now, we are on the verge of a divorce and desperately need divine intervention to salvage our marriage. Rekindle our love so that we can remain as one. War on our behalf. Do not let the enemy come between us. Bind us with cords of love that can never be broken. Help us to understand each other’s needs and give us wisdom so that we can rebuild this relationship. In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.

In Your Hands Prayer
Father, give us peace as a couple. We argue and just don’t get along with each other. I am not even sure we like each other anymore. We have done everything that we know how to do so we can keep our relationship together. But Father, we need to stop doing things our own way and start doing things your way. Show us your way. Guide our thoughts and our actions. Father, we know that your grace is sufficient for us as a couple. We have the confidence that we will have victory as a couple because we put our relationship in your hands. Our trust is in you. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Peace in Relationship Prayer
Dear God, we are going through one of the most challenging times in our relationship. Love and respect have been replaced by arguments and mistrust. Father, I am full of resentment, and so is my partner. Take away these feelings of resentment and give us peace and joy. Let peace reign when we communicate with each other. Let your spirit take control of our relationship. May we do things that are pleasing to you as a couple. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Understanding Prayer
Father God, I am struggling to understand my husband, and he doesn’t understand me either. Things between us do not seem to be working. But Father God, I know that nothing is impossible with you. You know us inside and out. You know our hurts and pains and how to mend our broken hearts. Help us to understand each other. Remove any preconceived assumptions we have about each other from our hearts. Help us to see each other the way you see us. Bring us closer together than we were before. Thank you, Lord, for answering our prayers. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Revelation Prayer
Lord Jesus, you know the things that are hidden deep in our hearts and are causing us to drift away from each. We are on the verge of breaking up, and I need your help. I know that your will is to keep us together because you brought us together. Please teach us how to love each other the right way. If there are things we are doing – knowingly or unknowingly – to hurt each other, Lord, reveal them to us and show us how to change. Help us to make informed decisions that will strengthen our relationship and bring glory to your holy name. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Healing Prayer
Father in heaven, you are our God. You brought my partner and me together. That is why I boldly come before your throne of grace today, Lord, asking you to heal our relationship. There has been so much hurt between my partner and me, caused by arguments, pride, and the schemes of the enemy. Lord, heal our hearts and minds. Help us to see ourselves as being on the same side, and not against each other. Wash away any bitterness that is in our hearts with the blood of your Son, Jesus. Restore our relationship and make us fall deeply in love again with each other. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Love for Each Other Prayer
Almighty God, we ask you today to help us show love to each other, instead of animosity. Let this relationship be guided by the love you have for us and not our selfish interests. May our hearts be filled with your overflowing love. Help us to overflow with that love, and spread love to others wherever we go. Holy Spirit of God, remind us of your unconditional love so that we can always walk in your love as a couple. Give us the grace to be kind to one another even when we disagree. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Forgiveness Prayer
Lord, help us to forgive each other the way you have forgiven us. Remove pride and arrogance from our hearts and help us to walk with humility as partners. Teach us how to be gracious towards each other, especially when we are disappointed by what our partner has done. Help us to truly understand each other. Soften our hearts that we may be quick to forgive and not hold grudges against each other. Give us the patience to stay calm and be slow to anger. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray. Amen.

Transformation Prayer
God Almighty, your name is always glorified when the relationships of your children thrive. Please transform our relationship so that it may align with your plans and your word. Let this transformation helps us be salt and light to other couples that are struggling in their relationships. Uproot the bad seeds that have been planted in our relationship by the world and let your word be the only standard upon which we measure ourselves. May your love and grace transform our hearts and minds that we may live for the glory of your holy name. In Jesus’ name, we believe and pray. Amen.

Growth Prayer
Dear Lord God, I feel like I am stuck in a relationship that has no sense of direction, and this is causing a lot of agony in my life. I know that you put my partner and I together for a higher purpose. Help us to walk in that purpose together. Father, show us areas we need to grow as individuals and as a couple. Grant us the grace to follow what you tell us to do. Fill us with the courage to step out of our comfort zones and what the world calls “normal” so that we can represent the kingdom and glorify your holy name. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
