Prayer for Acceptance of the Lord’s Timing
Merciful and Loving Father, Your timing is perfect. I have prayed in earnest for my marriage’s restoration. I am separated from my spouse and I confess, Lord, that my heart grows anxious waiting for Your response. You tell me not to worry, but commit my way to You and to trust You. Lord, I need Your peace now. I trust You, but my flesh is weak. Strengthen me to stay the course You have set before me. Amen.

Prayer for Faith
Gracious Lord, I feel as though my faith is like the faith of the father who prayed for his son in the Bible. I gave my marriage problems to You, just as the father gave his son’s illness. His lack of faith is seen by the small word “if” in his request, and I can recognize my wavering faith in my own prayers to You. I know You can heal and restore my marriage, but my faith is weak. Please increase my faith, Lord, and reunite me with my spouse soon. Amen.
