6 Strong Prayers for Couples Before Bed

Genesis 2:18
God of Creation, in the beginning, You said that it is not good for man to be alone, so You made a helper fit for him – Eve. I thank You for my partner, I know that this relationship is a blessing because together we are not alone. So, Lord we thank You for this day and as we are about to retire for bed, we thank You because our help is found not only in You, but also in each other – this is what You intended for our relationship. I pray that we continue to support one another and we ask that You keep us through the night, Amen.

Deuteronomy 24:5
Holy God, Your word says that when a man is newly married, he shall not go out with the army or be liable for any other public duty. He shall be free at home one year to be happy with his wife whom he has taken. Lord I thank You for this marriage, I thank You that we can find joy in spending quality time with one another. I pray that we always put each other before our careers, wealth or any other thing because these things aren’t greater than love, Amen.

Psalm 46:1, 7
Heavenly Father, we thank You for this relationship and for each other. As we say this prayer before bedtime, we ask that You Lord continue to be our strength and very present help in times of trouble. Lord, we recognise that we need your strength every single day and as we live together helps us to face challenges jointly and not separately because we will not fear, though the earth gives way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea. Father, we declare that the Lord Almighty is with us, the God of Jacob is our fortress, Amen.

Mark 10:9
God of Love, You have joined us together and as we are about to go to bed, we pray that this bond will not be separated by man. We pray that we continue to stand steadfast in our love for one another. Let our love be unshakable and let our love for You be the foundation of our relationship. We thank You for each other, and we know that we are blessed to have each other. We pray divine a covering over his/her life, and as we grow in You, our relationship with one another will grow also, Amen.

Ecclesiastes 9:9
Dear God, You Word tells me to enjoy life with the wife whom I love. All the days of my life which You have given me under the sun are fleeting. So, during this bedtime prayer, help us to enjoy life together because this is our reward in life and in our work in which we have laboured under the sun. We pray that we do not take each other for granted because we are truly blessed to have found one another. Bless us this night, Amen.

Proverbs 19:14
Holy God, Your Word says that house and wealth are the inheritance from fathers (from man); but a wise, understanding, and sensible wife is a gift and blessing from the Lord. I thank You for my partner because I know that he/she is a blessing from You. So Father as we reflect during this bedtime prayer, we thank You because through Your love and mercy towards us, it has enabled us to love and appreciate one another. Father continue to be in our relationship and in our hearts, Amen.
