13 Miracle Prayers for Marriage Restoration

Do you need to pray for restoration of your marriage?

Marriage is a lifelong commitment that should be honored by all in it. God’s design and plan is for the husband and wife to be together until they’re separated by death.

But along the way, marriage vows are broken and thoughts and even conversations about separation and divorce seem like the solution.

You may try to solve the issues on your own or use tactics that the world gives you and things don’t improve. That can lead to feelings of helplessness, defeat, and anger which can affect your relationships and your health. 

It’s in those times and seasons that we need God’s help for things to get back to where they were before and for an even stronger marriage to emerge.

Through these miracle prayers for marriage restoration, we will seek the power of the Lord in redeeming your marriage.

Marriage Restoration Prayer

Miracle Prayer to Restore Your Marriage

We serve the God of miracles. In the Bible, he healed people who were sick for years, parted the Red Sea, multiplied food to feed multitudes, and raised people from the dead. There is nothing that he can’t do. 

The same faithful God who performed miracles in the Bible can perform a miracle in your marriage. The enemy may want you to doubt the Lord but choose to trust him. 

“I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the hopper, the destroyer, and the cutter, my great army, which I sent among you. “You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, who has dealt wondrously with you. And my people shall never again be put to shame.” Joel 2:25-26 ESV

Remembering what he’s done for you will give you hope and faith that he can do it again no matter how bad things look in your marriage, he can restore your love for one another. 

Look at the miracles he’s done in your own life. How he saved you, healed you, and protects you daily is a miracle.

Heavenly Father, thank you for your presence in my life and my marriage. We are going through a difficult time right now and we need your divine intervention. Perform a miracle and restore the joy, peace, and love that has been stolen by the enemy in our home so that we have a happy and healthy marriage again. 

I praise your name for you shall remove the shame and guilt in our home so that we are satisfied, happy, and fulfilled again. Thank you for hearing us and answering our prayers. In Jesus’ name l pray. Amen. 

Marriage Restoration Prayer

Midnight Prayer for Marriage Restoration

We can pray at all times as the Bible encourages us to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17). But we often get distracted during the day. Praying at midnight helps us pray without distraction.

This is the time when the enemy attacks us because we’re vulnerable and weak. That’s also the time God fights our battles. 

There is power in praying at midnight whether it’s regular prayers or emergency prayers when you need urgent divine intervention. This is something that we see Paul and Silas do in the New Testament. 

They had been put in jail for praying for a girl and delivering her from the spirit of divination and her owners ordered these disciples of Jesus to be arrested.

“But about midnight when Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of praise to God, and the prisoners were listening to them; 26 suddenly there was a great earthquake, so [powerful] that the very foundations of the prison were shaken and at once all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were unfastened.” Acts 16:25-26 AMP

But when the disciples prayed at midnight, a miracle happened (Acts 16:16-24) and God’s blessings were released. This can happen in your life as well. 

Almighty God, in the stillness of the midnight hour, as others are asleep l arise and pray for my marriage. In the same way that chains were broken physically for Paul and Silas, break the spiritual chains that have caused pain and heartache in my marriage. 

Turn our hearts around and breathe life into our broken marriage. Help us find our way back to love, joy, and peace in our home. Restore communication, and intimacy and remind us of our marriage vows. Perform a miracle in our hearts and home and open the door for a great marriage in you. We trade sorrow and pain for God’s blessings in our union. Amen. 

Marriage Restoration Prayer

Prayer to Restore Trust in Your Marriage

Trust is one of the fundamental principles of a godly marriage. When trust is broken it’s often difficult to regain. Most marriages break down when trust is lost. 

But in God everything is possible. He can help you take the next steps to rebuild trust in your marriage.

“For nothing will be impossible with God.” Luke 1:37 NIV

If you’re committed to the leading of the Holy Spirit he can redeem your broken marriage and help your love to blossom again. 

Dear God, I know and believe that nothing is too difficult for You.  Trust has been lost in our marriage and the result is my broken heart. We want to trust each other and feel safe with each other, but we don’t. This has caused tensions, resentment, and a wall between me and my partner. 

Help us to extend grace to each other and in so doing find a way to move forward and rebuild trust in our home. Guide us so we find a way in our hearts to mend our relationship and lean on each other again knowing that we have each other’s best interests at heart. In Jesus’ name l pray. Amen. 

Marriage Restoration Prayer

Restoration Prayer for Hope in a Broken Marriage 

It’s easy to lose hope in a troubled marriage. You may have been trying to mend your relationship for years and not seeing much change. In fact, things may be getting worse. 

But in God, we can never lose hope. He has good plans for our future and we can trust that he will bring them to pass.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13 NIV

Hold onto hope, knowing and believing that change will come and your marriage will be restored. 

Father God, your word reminds us that you are the God of Hope so l wait expectantly for you to act and change things in this marriage. I reject any feeling of hopelessness and despair in my mind and heart. Holy Spirit, fill me until I’m overflowing with hope. 

For the first time, l have renewed hope in my marriage and your miraculous power to rescue it. I believe that you can do more than I could ever guess, ask, or imagine. Amen. 

Marriage Restoration Prayer

Restoration Prayer for Commitment to our Marriage 

Marriage is a lifelong commitment to love and cherish each other through the ups and downs of life. This is not always easy and often people go back on their wedding vows leading to broken relationships. 

“And said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” Matthew 19:5-6 NIV

But with God’s help, you can find a way to renew your love and commitment to one another. The Holy Spirit will give you the wisdom and strength to commit to your spouse and make a decision to stay married. 

God of restoration, renew our commitment to each other and help us abandon talks of separation and divorce. Remind us of our marriage vows and help us remain faithful to what we promised each other when we got married. The enemy wants us apart but may we choose your principles and teachings which guide us to hold firmly to our commitment to each other. 

I place our marital relationship at the foot of the cross of Jesus and plead with you to rescue our union from disaster. My husband is my best friend. Redeem our friendship and love. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen. 

Marriage Restoration Prayer

Prayer for Restoration and Healing in a Troubled Marriage 

One of God’s Hebrew names is Jehovah-Rapha “The God who heals.” He heals us from sicknesses and diseases but also heals us from broken hearts and emotional pain.

“For I will restore health to you And I will heal your wounds,’ says the Lord, ‘Because they have called you an outcast, saying: “This is Zion; no one seeks her and no one cares for her.”’ Jeremiah 30:17 AMP

When a marriage is in trouble harsh words are often said which can cause so much pain and heartache. Believe that the Lord can heal you from any pain that you and your spouse have inflicted in your marriage.

Dear Lord, thank you for the gift of marriage. There has been so much pain and heartache in our marriage so we come to you asking for emotional healing. No heart is too hard and no pain is too much for you not to heal. 

I pray for your healing touch on our hearts and in our lives. Through your miraculous power, restore our physical, emotional, and spiritual health. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen. 

Marriage Restoration Prayer

Prayer for Forgiveness in a Broken Marriage 

Forgiveness is paramount in married life. You are two adults raised differently, with different life experiences coming together to build a life and home together. When you live with someone daily, offense is inevitable. 

That’s why you need to ask the Holy Spirit to help you forgive each other. There is no limit to how many times we forgive. As long as there is offense and sin, grace and forgiveness are extended to your spouse. 

“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” Ephesians 4:32 NIV

We have been forgiven enormously for our sins against the Lord. That’s why he asks us to forgive others too for what they’ve done to us. 

Dear Heavenly Father, teach us how to forgive each other in our marriage. The same way you have forgiven us for our past, present, and future sins is the same way we choose to forgive others. Help us to let go of the pain, resentment, bitterness, and anger in my heart and my husband’s heart. 

Guide us on the right path of healing so that we can move forward in our marriage. Through the precious blood of our Lord Jesus Christ reconcile this broken relationship so we can experience love and joy again. Amen.  

Marriage Restoration Prayer

Miracle Prayer for Love to be Restored in our Marriage 

Over time in marriage, you may find the love you once had for your partner starts to dwindle and their offenses become visible. That’s the time you realize that love is not a feeling but a decision. As Christians, love is also a way of obeying God. 

“And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.” Romans 8:11 NIV

When love dies in a relationship, you need powerful prayers so that it can be rekindled again. God has given you his unconditional love and you can draw on that love to see your spouse in a new light and love them unconditionally too. 

God of restoration, thank You for showing me what true love looks like through Jesus giving Himself as a sacrifice for me. Help me to love my spouse well and offer myself sacrificially for them.

Show us how to rekindle the flame that first brought us together. May the love that once united us rise again and this time stronger than before. May the love of God breathe life and love back into our union. I believe that the Spirit of God which raised Jesus will restore our marriage to what it was before. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen. 

Marriage Restoration Prayer

Prayer for the Restoration of Peace in Your Marriage

Marital problems can result in chaos and a lack of peace in a marriage. The broken relationship causes worry, anxiety, and stress about what the future looks like and if your marriage will survive the difficult time you’re going through. 

“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.” Colossians 3:15 NIV

Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace. When he was leaving to go to heaven he assured us that we would face many challenges but his peace and presence would carry and sustain us during life’s storms. 

Dear Lord, you promise us perfect peace as we keep our minds focused on you and your word. The promises in the word of God bring us peace and assurance of your mighty power. 

Peace is a blessing that you’ve graciously given us. May your peace rule richly in my heart and my spouse’s heart. We choose to let the peace of Christ rest in our home. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen. 

Marriage Restoration Prayer

Miracle Prayer for Strength in your Broken Relationship

Are you tired of fighting with your spouse all the time and seriously thinking about separation or divorce? Don’t give up just yet. God offers us an invitation to come to him when we are weary.

God will carry us in hard times and renew our strength. You were never meant to do life alone that’s why he’s sent the Holy Spirit to comfort, guide, and help us.

“And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.” 1 Peter 5:10 ESV

Just like with Job, our all-knowing God allows trials and suffering for a season to build our faith in Him. Trust that he is working everything for your God and that he won’t abandon you in your time of need. 

Almighty God, you are the all-powerful God who fights our battles for us and gives us victory. In my own power, I’m limited and often feel I’m at my end, heavily burdened and ready to give up. 

Renew my strength to fight for my marriage until we experience restoration. Come to my rescue, dear Lord, and help me not to lose heart. I lean on your strength and believe you will guide me, give me wisdom and strength so I can honor and glorify you in my marriage. In Jesus’ name l pray. Amen. 

Marriage Restoration Prayer

Prayer for Restoration of Joy in your Marriage 

Joy is essential to the Christian life and your marriage. When joy is lost, bitterness, resentment, and even depression take root.  

When God asks us to rejoice at all times (1 Thessalonians 5:16) it’s not because life will always be perfect. 

“Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance. And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours.” Isaiah 61:7 NIV

Joy comes from a close relationship with the Lord, faith in him, and trust in his promises. Even when your marriage is going through a tough time, you can rejoice because you know that God will see you through this season. 

Father God, bless our marriage with a double portion of joy. It’s our deepest desire that our home be filled with the joy of the Lord which is our strength through the ups and downs of this life. 

May we experience everlasting joy and be able to laugh together and enjoy the journey of marriage. Guide us to choose joy over sorrow and unhappiness. We put our trust in you Lord for the restoration of joy in our marriage. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen. 

Marriage Restoration Prayer

Prayer for Patience in the Restoration of your Marriage 

When we pray, we expect instant results. But the truth is God’s timing is not the same as our timing. That’s why we need to learn to wait on the Lord. 

“Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” Ephesians 4:2 NIV

Being patient with God is about having the right humble attitude as you wait for him to answer your prayers.

He knows what is best for us because he created us in his image for his glory. Ask him to help you become patient as you wait for a turnaround in your marriage. 

Heavenly Father, thank you for your word which renews our hope in your power. Sometimes I lose my patience in waiting for you to restore this broken marriage. Help me to have faith that you are a miracle-working God who does things in his own time and his ways. 

Holy Spirit, teach me to be patient, and humble and wait on the Lord’s timing because it is the best. In this season may l bear with my spouse and show them unselfish love. In Jesus’ name l pray. Amen. 

Marriage Restoration Prayer

Prayer for Wisdom in a Troubled Marriage 

Wisdom is a divine gift that allows us to understand life from God’s perspective. It also helps us to practically apply the principles and teachings of God’s word in everyday life.

“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.” James 1:5 NIV

You need wisdom to know what to say and what to do in a broken marriage. The good news is the Lord promises that he will give wisdom to all those who ask him. 

Dear God, I’m coming to you because l don’t always know the right things to say or do in this troubled marriage. I ask that you give me the wisdom to love my spouse and serve him in a way that honors and glorifies you.

Thank you that you are ready to give wisdom to all those who need it. Give me a fresh perspective on my marriage and help me to think, act, and speak in a way that reflects that I’m your child. May l be able to discern your will daily. In Jesus’ name l pray. Amen.
