Relationship Prayers

Dear Lord, I offer you this prayer, to help me with my current relationship situation. Please take away all the pain and hurt in my heart. Fill it with love, joy, patience, and understanding. Bless me and my partner, so that we may never surrender to whatever challenges that come our way. Fill our hearts with love for each other, and may you make each one of us realize each other's worth. Please touch the heart of my partner,fill it with much love for me. Make our complicated relationship become uncomplicated. I seek for your mercy and blessing that you may allow us to spend the rest of our lives with each other. Please make this feeling mutual for both of us. Lead us not into temptations. Guide us wherever we go. Always put us in each other's heart and mind. Thank you Lord for hearing my prayer.

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.

Dear Lord Jesus, thank You that You are the One that heals the broken hearted and sets the captives free – thank You that You are the one that knows every intimate detail about our lives and Who sticks closer than a brother. Thank You Lord that You have promised never to leave us nor forsake us but desires to give all your children the peace that passes understanding – as we look to Jesus and secure our hearts upon Him.

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.

Dear God, Please make of our relationship a great and holy adventure. May our joining be a sacred space. May the two of us find rest here, a haven for our souls. Remove from us any temptation to judge one another or to direct one another. We surrender to You our conflicts and our burdens. We know You are our Answer and our rock. Help us to not forget. Thank you, dear God, You who are the cement between us. Thank You for this love.

Heavenly Father, I profess that I do not understand my partner’s needs. I don’t know how to fix our problems. Please open my eyes to my partner so that I can see why he or she acts the way they do. And please help me to understand, too, my own motivations and needs so that I can know when I am in the wrong. Lord, grant us both a greater understanding of one another, and take away the preconceived notions and assumptions that are keeping us from truly communicating. Bring my partner and I closer together, and closer to you, than ever before.

Lord, my relationship has become difficult. There is fighting and unease. There’s tension and resentment. I feel that I have nowhere to turn. Please let there be peace between my partner and I. Grant us the kind of peace that only you can give, Lord, and help us to feel at ease with one another. Drain away any resentment, anger, or tension that has built up between us. Help us to seek compromise rather than struggling with one another in order to “win.” Please bless our home to be a place of peace and restfulness, as it should be.

Lord, I take comfort in the fact that you know all things. My relationship is struggling, and I don’t know what to do. Please reveal to me the things that I, or my partner, can do better in order for our relationship to please you. And if it’s time to end the relationship, please help me to see and accept this. Open my eyes to any abuse that I may be suffering, and give me the strength to escape it. If my partner is hiding something from me, let it come to light so that I can make an informed decision.

Dear God, I ask that you please heal the damage that has built up through the long struggle my partner and I have been through in our relationship. Please bless us both with the wisdom to take the knowledge of what we’ve done wrong and use it to make things better. Lord, let love suffuse our relationship. Let it fill every corner of our lives, healing the rift between us. Help my partner and I to love one another as Christ loves the Church, as you love your human children: unconditionally and respectfully.
