Marriage Restoration Prayers

Who is this prayer for?

Your marriage is on the rocks, you have done the right thing for seeking help. The most important thing in prayer is praying with understanding. Therefore, before getting into marriage restoration prayers, first, it is important to understand what marriage is and what is marriage restoration.

This prayer is meant for married people, does not matter whether you are Christian or non-Christian. This prayer will be encouraging to both Christians and Non-Christians who are seeking help with their marriage problems. I am a living testimony of marriage restoration as God restored my marriage. My wife and I went on separation for 8 good months and we were heading for divorce and right when I wanted to give up, Jesus Christ showed up in my life and restored my marriage. Jesus Christ showed up when I needed him most. I must emphasise the fact that as good this testimony is, it was a lot of tears through prayer and fasting. I was so shaken but God restored my family. I have no words to express my gratitude for this amazing work of God in my life.

What is a Marriage

Marriage, which is a holy union between man and woman is made in heaven. It symbolizes love, companionship, family life and is the foundation of our society. Amongst all, marriage is to have healthy children and for a good society and good nations they must be built on strong foundations and marriages. Nations are mostly set by families that are founded on strong marriages. Unfortunately most marriages these days are falling apart because people no longer understand their roles. Many parents have divorced since many couples do not know how to handle conflict in their homes. What they don’t realize is that divorce is not an option but restoration is always possible with the Almighty God’s guidance through prayers for restoration.

It must be understood here that marriage problems cannot be solved by you alone; it requires both partners to work it out together. It is important to pray together and not do things in isolation if possible. However, even if the other partner is not ready to engage in restoration prayers, it still takes one willing partner to pray for restoration and engage in spiritual warfare prayer.

Divorce may seem like a solution but it is rather a problem that has gone from bad to worse. Prayer for marriage restoration is, therefore, the best option; only prayer can save marriages from crumbling at times when parents fail each other through ignorance or lack of communication. In such circumstances, many turn their backs on the Word of God and ignore His advice for their problems like revealing what they think about each other, their feelings and desires which they keep secreted in their hearts while some go ahead to seek dirty information about their spouses. Through prayers, you can resolve these issues and because it is God who hears and sees all, you will handle your problems the biblical way where there are no secrets between spouses.

This is a process that every married person should go through after having a broken marriage or relationship. Going through this process will help you to restore your marriage back to where it was before things started going wrong. It will bring love, joy and happiness back into your family as if nothing ever went wrong between you and your spouse. In addition to that, God restores marriages not through your works but through prayers.

God hates divorce so much that He said anyone who divorces his spouse is being cruel to them. Prayers to bring restoration is your way of getting your marriage restored by staying in the will of God. When you pray, the devil has no choice but to obey what you say and it is in this form that He cannot do anything to stop God from restoring back what the devil took away from your family.

What it means to pray for marriage restoration

Engaging in a marriage restoration prayer is not just saying “our Father” in heaven or repeating prayers written in a book. It should be a communion between you and the Almighty God. Marriage restoration prayers should take place at least three times a day, morning, afternoon and evening before going to bed. Prayers for marriage can also be done more often as possible so that there is consistent communication with the Almighty God concerning your marriage restoration needs. During prayer, you must focus on Jesus to heal you and guide you while you engage in Spiritual warfare prayers.

What it means to pray in the Holy Spirit

To pray in the spirit means to engage your spirits with Jesus’ Spirit. When you pray, you must engage your mind but also your spirits which is where all supernatural power is made available for us by God to accomplish our prayers (Luke 11:13).

Before engaging in any prayer, it is important to understand your enemy. The devil operates from his kingdom of darkness and tries with all his might to stop you from praying for anything that will remove him from any part of your life or families lives. You must always engage in spiritual warfare prayers when doing marriage restoration prayer sessions because the devil is more interested in destroying marriages than we realize. For your prayers for marriage restoration to be effective, you must stand firm and engage in serious spiritual warfare. Engaging in a daily prayer life with God is a good way of avoiding many problems because it enables us to know what we should do and when we should avoid doing things the devil influenced us to do.

During spiritual warfare, always remember we wrestle not again flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world.  It is important to always be on the alert because you never know when your enemy will make a move. Prayers for marriage restoration is a powerful weapon that can heal and restore any marriage from the hurt, pain and brokenness brought about by error or sin. It is important to then focus on the evil one your adversary and not condemn yourself or your spouse. Put on the full armour of God daily to enable you to examine yourself and your relationship with other family members. Engaging in marriage restoration prayers is not just about asking to restore your marriage, but also restoring your strength so that you can fight the good fight called life.

What does it mean to pray effectively?

Prayer is not meant to be a wasted effort. Learning how to pray effectively is important when engaging in prayers for marriage restoration. Prayer should be all, powerful and effective so that you can receive the marriage restoration results you want. There is power in prayer and there are always consequences for your prayers when they are not done effectively. When we do things in life, there are always consequences to the outcomes of our efforts. The same applies when praying for your relationship restoration. You must learn how to pray effectively where you will get answers and results by knowing what type of prayers God responds best to and also knowing what words to use in prayer. It is also important that we understand the timing in which we should pray for a specific answer or result from God.

How to do marriage restoration prayers

Prayer must always be done in the spirit because it is the only place where you can connect with Jesus and receive power from him to change things around your home, husband, wife and children as individuals as well as a family unit. Most people engage in prayer in the mind and fail to receive any results. When engaging in marriage restoration prayers, you must focus on your spirit and engage yourself completely.

What not to do during prayers

There are limitations as to what we can expect from God especially when it comes to our requests concerning situations that we cannot fix or problem areas where the devil is heavily entrenched. Praying effectively during marriage restoration prayers is all about bringing what you need help with before God’s throne of grace, His mercy and concern are most likely to be found in these areas. Also, you must always understand that God is holy and does not give you everything you ask for. You should then pray according to his will rather than your will. It would also be good to avoid praying when you are in a hurry because it may hinder the power of God from manifesting in your life through prayer.

What to do when prayer seems ineffective

When praying for certain things, results may not always come immediately as expected. This doesn’t mean that you will not receive an answer from God. This means that you need to learn patience and continue praying until the results come. Whether your prayers are answered or not, it is important to always have a way of knowing whether what you prayed for will eventually happen because you have knowledge about the problem area concerning your prayer request which helps you know how to deal with any consequences that may arise after you prayed.
