Before bedtime, some couples say a prayer together to help deepen and strengthen their relationship for years to come. Thanking God for His goodness in our lives is just one way to rekindle romance and love. Here are some great bedtime prayers for couples.

Prayer for Godly Love
Eternal Lord, Your word tells us that love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, boastful, proud or rude. Love is not irritable, and keeps no record of wrongs. Precious Lord, tonight we pray for Your help so that we show each other this kind of love through our actions every day. Make our love for each other reflect Your holy, truly and perfect love. Help us to be mature Christians, and treasure our unity with each other as a gift from You. Keep our focus on You as the center of our relationship, and strangle any jealousy or anger that tries to damage our bond with each other. In Your name, Amen.

Prayer for Building Relationship
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed is Your holy name. I know that You want a man to love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must also respect her husband. Please help me be a better partner I declare that my partner. Help me never take this union for granted, fully appreciating the importance of this gift from You every day. Guide me so that I do my part to build this relationship based on mutual respect and love. Give me the maturity and strength to consider my partner’s needs before my own, and be willing to sacrifice my own needs first. Temper my anger and pride, Father, and make me an image of You. Keep Your Godly values in my heart, so that this relationship may flourish. In Your holy name, I pray. Amen.

Prayer for Fidelity
Beautiful One, I thank You tonight for blessing my relationship with my partner. We share a special bond because we have been united by You. Please keep us out of temptation, and lead us down a moral path in our lives together. Give each of us the strength and the integrity to remain faithful to one another, forsaking all others. Remind us to actively work to show Your love to each other, so that we may remain deeply in love. I pray that as You are eternally faithful to us, we remain faithful to each other. Amen.

Prayer of Gratitude
Almighty God, I come to You tonight to give You thanks for my other half. Your word states that it is not good for a man to be alone, so You made a helper suitable for him.

Thank You for being faithful in Your promise to me by assigning me a helper! Guide my thoughts and my actions so that I protect and cherish Your holy gift to me. Amen.

Prayer for Our Work to Flourish
God of Creation, in the very beginning You had a plan for couples. You created us in Your own image and blessed us. You commanded both male and female to be fruitful and multiply. We pray tonight that You guide our thoughts and our actions so that we can be an example of You to others. Show us Your will for our life together, so that we can spread Your love on earth. Lead us daily so that everything we do together is Christlike and flourishes. Let our works multiply and fill the earth. In Your holy name, Amen.

Prayer for Peace
God of Love, with all humility and gentleness, and with patience, let us treat one another with Godly love. We are eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit within our loving bond, and show each other the respect that each of us craves and deserves. Please help us to acknowledge the good in each other and overlook our shortcomings. Calm our hearts and our emotions so that we are slow to anger with each other. Thank You for the unique union that You have forged between us and for our foundation which is built on You, our God. Amen.

Prayer for Love
Jesus, our Savior, I pray to You tonight to fill my partner and I with Your Holy Spirit. Create in each of us the perfect partner for each other. Fill us with the virtues of honesty, compassion, generosity, fidelity, integrity and fairness. Above all, sweet Jesus, fill our hearts with a Godly and biblical love for each. Teach us how to best show our love for each other, so that the other may best receive it. Let all that we do be in love, for love, and because of love. Amen.

Prayer for Consistent Improvement
Heavenly Father, tonight we pray that we help each other to be more Christlike in our walk with You. Give us the right words to gently tell each other where we need to improve, and to encourage each another to continue to become stronger in You. When we hear these words of encouragement, Lord, give us ears to hear. Continually motivate each of us to become better versions of ourselves for each other and so that we are an example of You for others. I pray that we strengthen each other and persevere in our walk with You, so that we can grow both individually and as a couple. Amen.
