Almighty God, there are so many people who live in darkness as a result of abusive relationships. Help them, Father, to recognize that abuse can take many forms, not just physical, but mental, verbal and emotional as well.
Enlighten them and provide them with wisdom to see when things are not right within their relationships. Where frustration and confusion exist, and even when they feel powerless or fearful, Lord, grant them Your peace. Uphold them with Your mighty and victorious right hand.
In the name of Jesus, I stand against all types of domestic violence and abuse within my family. I bind every evil spirit associated with them.
I command anything and everything that destroys a person’s self-respect, self-worth and confidence and leaves them with feelings of low self-esteem and depression, to be removed from my family relationships.
1 Peter 3:7 Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.

Healing for victims of abuse
Allow them to heal and forgive. Show them that, as a person, they deserve to be respected, to feel safe and valued.
Abba Father, help those being abused to recognize that when they feel dominated, disgraced and even dejected, that they need to stand up and declare that no weapon formed against them shall prosper because they are delivered by the blood of Jesus and are children of the Most High God!

Praying for abusers
I also pray for abusers, Heavenly Father. Have Your way with them, so they will not have the desire to control and manipulate their partners. Lead them to Your Word, where they will purified and made right in Your sight.
Embed Your Word in their hearts so that they will live in harmony and have perfect and constant peace within themselves, and in turn, with their partners.
