What is The Prayer for Marriage Every Day?

Okay, first to answer a few questions. We know we must pray for our marriage. In fact, we must pray daily for our marriage!

So is there a daily marriage prayer?

When Bud and I were first married and it was clear things would be difficult, I often prayed the same prayer over and over.

Lord, change Him.
Help us, Jesus.
Holy Spirit, show me the way forward.

Those prayers, breath prayers, kept my mind and heart fixed on God. They were not strong or powerful. When you need prayer for a deeply troubled marriage, you need Scripture, you need focused, specific prayers. That’s what we will find today.

How to Pray When Your Marriage Is Falling Apart?

Prayer for Marriage Protection – 7/1

“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
    my God, in whom I trust.” (Psalm 91 ESV)

Most High God,

This marriage is under attack from an enemy I can’t see and could never understand or outsmart. I run to You for shelter. Hide me in the shadow of Your wing. Be my refuge and my fortress, oh GOD. I trust in You alone to protect us through this attack.

Through sickness or poverty or persecution or grief, I believe You are covering us. As we see other couples going down left and right, I trust that You will hold us together.

You are my dwelling place, I hide myself in You, in Your Word, in praise in gratitude… Protect our dwelling place on earth, our hearts where we are joined together.

We call to you, Oh Lord our God. Save us.

Amen

Prayer for a Strong Relationship – 7/2

“fear not, for I am with you;
    be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10 ESV)

El Sali (God is my strength),

You have said to not fear, remembering You are with me. You never leave me or forsake me. I know this in my head, but at times my heart forgets. Help me feel Your presence with me through this season.

I am afraid… afraid things will never be better. I am dismayed… dismayed that this marriage is not as strong as I thought it would be by now. You are my God. I stand, believing You are Who You Say You are and You can do what You say you can do.

You promise to strengthen and help me. I stand on that promise today. Strengthen me. Strengthen him. Make this marriage something stronger than the enemy’s attacks.

Through it all, You promise to uphold us with Your righteousness. Thank You for that covenant promise that even when I get it wrong You are right. Even when I let go of You, struggling to do things Your way when I can’t understand, You hold onto me.

Lord, be my strength because I have no strength today.

Amen

Prayer for Mental Health – 7/3

“You keep him in perfect peace
    whose mind is stayed on you,
    because he trusts in you.
Trust in the Lord forever,
    for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.” (Isaiah 26:3 ESV)

Holy Spirit,

Our minds are under attack more and more. I know my spouse struggles to keep his mind right. The voices from the past whisper lies that he has to fight continually. Your perfect peace feels out of reach most days.

Teach him to keep his mind and thoughts fixed on You, remembering Your Words, Your faithfulness, Your blessings, Your presence in past troubles. When he is tempted to look with hopelessness at the trials around him, turn his gaze back to You.

When he begins to trust in himself or his own plans or his own understanding, remind Him that Your ways are higher. Remind Him that You have always been trustworthy in the past. Since You never change, You will be trustworthy right now for him. Grow his faith to trust You.

When it feels like everything around him is shaking, remind Him that you are his everlasting, trustworthy rock! Hold his mind together through this battle. Be his everything. Please stand up and fight over his mind. I claim a strong healthy mind for him.

In Jesus’ name.

Anxiety – 7/4

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and pleading with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7 NASB)

Dearest Heavenly Father,

Anxiety is like a disease plaguing our world today. It slips in – unaware – and destroys the joy and peace within. You teach us to fear not and do not be anxious about anything, but that is beyond what we can do most days alone.

When we pray about everything that all changes, but it’s hard to remember to pray about everything. Please, Lord, help us both focus our minds back on you when the anxiety comes.

Thanksgiving also fights away anxiety but it is more natural to complain and grumble. Teach us both to be grateful for all You do and have done in our lives. Help the complaints to raise red flags in our minds, to be like gravel as it comes out of our mouths. Train us to be people who speak words of life instead of complaints or grumbling.

Thank You in advance for the peace of God that surpasses all understanding. The guarding of our hearts and minds in Christ is a blessing like nothing else! You lavish us in Your unconditional love. Let us never forget!

Amen

Prayer for Physical Health – 7/5

“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20 ESV)

Lord Jesus,

Thank you for choosing to walk this earth as a man. Because you lived here and were tempted in every way we are tempted, You are approachable.

When You left the earth, You sent the Helper, Holy Spirit, to dwell within us. That made our bodies Your temple. It is so easy to forget that Your Spirit makes this body His home. Forgive us for taking this body for granted. Forgive us for abusing this body.

Teach us to honor this body, care for this body, and glorify You with what is done in this body.

There are many areas of sin that directly impact our physical body. Sexual sin, gluttony, eating disorders, unchecked anger, unchecked anxiety or fear, recklessness, alcoholism, substance abuse, and so many more sins destroy these bodies.

I ask that You would make us uncomfortable with sin that affects our body. Cause us to see that sin as sin and not just excuse it away. Show us the way out of sin and help us to have the strength to follow through.

I want to pray for the physical health of my spouse. Selfishly, I pray this because I want to grow old with him and I don’t want to see him suffer needlessly. This verse, however, reminds me that the reason to pray for physical health is so that we can use this body, Your temple, to glorify You. Keep that at the front of my mind and his mind.

Amen

Spiritual Growth – 7/6

“And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy; giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.” (Colossian 1:9-12 ESV)

O Lord,

I pray for my husband to be filled with the knowledge of YOUR will. Fill him with spiritual wisdom and understanding. Help him to walk in a manner worthy of You Lord. It is my greatest desire that both of our lives are fully pleasing to You.

Please work in our lives so that we would bear fruit in every good work, and that our deeds would not be wasted or pointless or selfishly motivated. Let us increase in the knowledge of God so we grow closer together and stronger in our commitment to You and this marriage.

Strengthen us with all power according to Your glorious might. Let us endure with patience and joy the path You have laid out for us in this life. We thank You in advance. Help us continually be grateful as you have adopted us (when we could never earn or deserve Your love or Covenant) and given us an inheritance.

Continue to grow us spiritually for Your glory and our good.

Amen

Prayer for a Clear Identity in Christ – 7/7

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” (2 Corinthians 5:17-21 ESV)

Precious Savior,

You came to earth as a man, fully man yet fully God, to give us a new name. I am asking You to help my spouse see his new identity. He is a new man, the old passed away when he began to walk with You.

You called him out of the desires of the flesh. When the war against the spirit inside of him, remind him that he has You to help in the battle.

As You form him more and more into Your image, show him where he is believing lies from the past… holding onto old identities that are holding him back.

You have given us a calling and a ministry to share the gospel. We are called to love the lost, helping reconcile them to You. We are Your ambassadors, allowing the Holy Spirit to appeal to the lost through us. You desire their salvation but when we are living the old self we get in the way. Change us.

Amen

Depression – 7/8

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30 ESV)

Holy Spirit,

When Jesus was preparing to leave this world He declared that You would come and be our Comforter, a Great Counselor. My husband needs You in that way right now. Life has not gone as he expected. The burdens he carries are heavy and he is tired of bearing the weight. Yet, he doesn’t know how to set them down at Your feet… so I am interceding for him.

Teach him to find rest in You. Show him how to take off the yoke he wears alone and step into Your yoke. Remind him to walk beside you rather than trying to run ahead so he can learn from You.

When that spirit of depression comes over him, a lie it speaks is that You are harsh, Your ways are exhausting, and he will just fail anyway. In that place, he feels overwhelmed and hopeless. What he needs is your gentleness to guide him toward the rest his soul needs.

If he would live in that place, yoked to You, life would be easier and lighter and the depression would have less to hold onto. Please teach him in ways only You can. Free him from the depression of this season and grow him closer to You.

Amen.

A Spirit of Suicide – 7/9

“For we do not want you to be unaware, brethren, of our affliction which came to us in Asia, that we were burdened excessively, beyond our strength, so that we despaired even of life; indeed, we had the sentence of death within ourselves so that we would not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead; who delivered us from so great a peril of death, and will deliver us, He on whom we have set our hope. And He will yet deliver us,” (2 Corinthians 1:8-10 NASB)

Jesus,

You are our Great High Priest, yet You lived in this world and understand all the ways we suffer and are tempted. More and more today there is a spirit of suicide running rampent. We have already felt it’s icy fingers reach into our lives which is driving me to intercede now.

The thought that life is too much is not new to this world or to believers. Even Paul and his team felt overwhelmed by the trials of life. My husband often feels burdned excessivly, beyond his strength. Hold him up, Lord. He despaires of this life and has thoughts that death would be better.

Remind him not to trust in himself, but to trust in YOU. God, You raise the dead, You deliver from great perils. I trust that You will deliver him. Teach him to set his hope on You, believing fully that You will deliver him from a spirit of suicide.

Amen

Grateful Heart – 7/10

“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” (1 Thessalonians 5:18 ESV)

“Do all things without complaining or arguments (grumbling); so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world…” (Philippians 2:14-15 NASB)

Lord,

Repeatedly in Scripture, You instruct us to be people who are thankful and grateful. Give thanks in all circumstances, You tell us, but that is challenging. When life gets hard or there are irritating people or circumstances it is more natural to complain.

In fact, at times we fall into the habit of grumbling and complaining. Forgive us. Cause complaint and aguing and grumbling to feel like gravel in our mouths. Break the habit of being ungrateful.

Remind us that our words and attitudes are how the lost world understands Jesus. When we complain like them, argue continually like them, or grumble about everything like them, we are not being salt and light. Change us.

We desire to be children of God who are above reproach in the midst of this crooked and perverse generation. We desire to shine Your light all around. Mold us more into that image so we can win the lost for You.

Amen

Hunger and Thirst for Righteousness – 7/11

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.” (Matthew 5:6 ESV)

Holy, Righteous Father,

You call us to be holy and set apart like You. We are often reminded to renew our minds and to be salt and light to the lost world in which we live. Living in those ways, however, is not natural.

We are continually distracted by the busyness of life. The world around us feeds us a steady stream of messages that run in the opposite direction of what You ask. Even within the church, we can be kept busy, distracted, and confused about our purpose on Earth.

Unless You cultivate a hunger and thirst for righteousness it will not happen. Unless You help us see everything else as pale and unsatisfying we won’t reach for Your ways.

Please help us to see the world through Your eyes. Help us desire what You desire, care about what You care about, and love the way that You love. Let nothing else satisfy us if we are not hungering for You. Help the parched feeling in our soul direct us to seek You. Please don’t give up on us. Keep drawing us. We need You. We need Your righteousness.

Amen

Prayer for Anger – 7/12

“You know this, my beloved brothers and sisters. Now everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger; for a man’s anger does not bring about the righteousness of God.” (James 1:19-20 NASB)

Sweet Spirit,

So much in life has the potential to stir up anger within us. My spouse can be irritable and that can lead to unexpected bouts of anger. It drives a wedge between us and taints his relationship with his children.

Scripture says so much about anger, but still, the temptation is to fall into old fleshly patterns and give in to angry outbursts. Help him to a person who is slow to anger.

James teaches us that to be slow to anger you must be quick to listen. Remind my husband to listen to hear and understand rather than quietly waiting for a moment to defend himself or continue his angry tirade. To truly listen to understand the other person’s perspective so he shows love… so he can find a way to reconcile and preserve the relationship.

Teach him to be a person who is slow to speak. When those emotions begin to stir up in him, help him learn to pray first, listen to love, and speak only when he can do so from the right place.

There are moments when anger is justifiable, but he doesn’t want to lose those closest to him because of a short fuse. If he could learn the self-control of listening and waiting to speak he would be less angry in the long run. Less anger would help him in every area of life. Only You can work this change. Thank you now for the victory to come!

Amen

To Know the Will of God for Work – 7/13

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord” (Jeremiah 29:11-14a NASB)

Almighty God,

You know all things. You see ahead of us and behind us. Not only do You see everything, You have a plan for all things. Jeremiah stated that Your plans are good, they are for our welfare and not for evil, to give us a future and a hope. Help my husband to remember that as he searches for work.

He has not found work to be satisfying in the way he expected. He is often discontent and irritated about the future he imagines because of his work life. Remind Him that You have a plan and that You are in control. When his mind begins to race or spiral toward despair and hopelessness, draw it back to You.

Repeatedly in Scripture, You promise that we can come to You in prayer. “Call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you,” you assure. Teach my husband that he isn’t supposed to figure this out alone. He is meant to ask You and follow Your plan for his life.

Make him a man who seeks You with all his heart because finding You is the real satisfaction for which he is searching. Help him to hunger for Your presence and thirst for Your voice. Then he will find true satisfaction and joy regardless of his work.

Amen

Communication Struggles – 7/14

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit.” (Proverbs 18:21 NASB)

Holy Spirit,

You live within us both. You know how communication was in the beginning. There was sweetness and consideration and interest and curiosity once. Now there is busyness and distraction and the weight of responsibility. There has been hurt and so there are walls now. There has been neglect and so there is skepticism now.

Only You can tear down the walls. Only You can repair what has been broken. Please breathe new life into our marriage and into how we communicate.

I surrender to You. Forgive me for the walls and the skepticism. Forgive me for being too busy to listen and be curious and caring. Help me see him when he speaks and listen to show love rather than advise or defend.

For years now, I’ve spoken words of death; sarcasm, criticism, doubt, and silence were my weapons. Help me choose words of life each day; encouragement, support, love, acknowledgment, curiosity, and grace.

Let the fruit of our words grow healthy communication in this marriage. Let it begin in me but catch on to him and our children quickly.

Amen

Temptation – 7/15

“No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13 ESV)

Gracious Father,

You know all things. You know when we sit and when we rise, when we stand strong and when we fall short. Nothing is hidden from You. I know some of the ways my husband is tempted, but he hides most of them well. I ask this in the power of the Blood to cover every area of temptation known and unknown.

When he is tempted, remind him that the enemy has nothing new. There is nothing he can be tempted about that the Lord can’t provide a way of escape. Help him remember Your faithfulness in the past, in other areas of temptation… or in the testimonies of others if he hasn’t been set free in any area he can think of.

You are faithful to not let him be tempted beyond what he is able to endure, but the limit You know is often farther past the limit we see. Help him see the strength he has because You live within him.

There is a promise that You will provide a way to escape the sin that is tempted. Show him the way and then give him the strength to walk in that way.

Remind me to never judge, but to love and support him where he struggles. Help him to treat me that way as well. Bring hope and healing where we have not done that well. Be glorified in the victories to come!

Amen

Parenting

“And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” (Deuteronomy 6:6-9 ESV)

Abba Father,

You are the most loving daddy. You lead us, guide up, and protect us throughout our lives with unconditional love. That is the way we want to love our children as well but it is challenging. We have never been parents before and we keep messing things up. Forgive us.

Help us remember Your command for how to raise our children. Teach them Your words, diligently. When we talk with them as we sit in the house, let Your name be on our lips. As we walk through life, let us teach them what You’ve taught us. When we lie down let us honor You with our rest and restful activities and teach them to do the same. As we rise each day let thanksgiving and praise be our example to our children.

Let Your words be bound on our person, displayed in all we do with our hands. Keep our eyes fixed on You and Your word on our mind like it were written on our forehead. Let Your words be written throughout our home as a constant reminder to think, act, and speak in ways that honor You first. Write Your words on our doorpost to remind us not to bring anything ungodly into this home. Protect us and bring peace as we steward Your children.

Amen

Teen Parenting – 7/17

“Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” (Ephesians 6:4 NASB)

Lord Jesus,

My husband longs to be a good godly father. He thrived at loving his children as babies and toddlers. Tickle fights and roughhousing were his way of connecting with them in elementary school. But as they step into their teen years, he is struggling to connect with them.

Things that once brought them smiles now make them feel immature, yet he wants to connect how they once connected. Instead of creating a connection, he is driving them to anger. He can’t seem to set those old ways aside for now and learn how to connect in this new way.

Give him wisdom and discernment as we enter this ever-changing world of hormones and transition. Protect their relationships. Give him Your love for his children when their actions stir anger or frustration in him. Help him remain patient, consistent, and loving even when they are impatient, inconsistent, and irrational.

Remind us both that this will only last for a season but it is an important season where they are trying to figure out who they are, and who they want to be. They are asking, “Will you love me if I change? Will you love me if I am temperamental? And will you love me if I don’t know who I am or don’t always love myself? They still need us to answer their question without hesitation, “Yes, I will always love you.”

You always answer us that way. Help us love them that way. Help him find a way to love them in this season that will not stir up anger.

Amen.

Prayer for A Deeply Troubled Marriage

“…Because the Lord has been a witness between you and the wife of your youth, against whom you have dealt treacherously, though she is your marriage companion and your wife by covenant. But not one has done so who has a remnant of the Spirit. And why the one? He was seeking a godly offspring. Be careful then about your spirit, and see that none of you deals treacherously against the wife of your youth. “For I hate divorce,” says the Lord, the God of Israel, “and him who covers his garment with violence,” says the Lord of armies. “So be careful about your spirit, that you do not deal treacherously.” (Malachi 2:14-16 NASB)
