Prayer:  A Wife’s Struggle

Almighty God, I give you all the praise and glory as I worship You in spirit and in truth. Thank You that I have the honor of praising You at my convenience, without limitations. 

As I come humbly before Your throne of Grace, where I obtain mercy, I pray that my journey in married life, would be renewed and restored to new heights, in the matchless and wonderful name of Jesus Christ.

Ecclesiastes 4:12 – Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 – Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.

Stress in my marriage

Heavenly Father, quite often I am faced with the stresses of life that often make my marriage feel burdensome.  In the past I’ve lost my inner peace and struggled with issues of  trust.

I hate the person I have since become. Help me Abba to love myself again. I love and adore my husband and I yearn to be the wife You created me to be, one who my husband would truly love, admire and cherish.

Ephesians 4:2-3 – with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

Colossians 3:14 – But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.

Praying for understanding and wisdom

I ask Lord that You fill me daily with Your Holy Presence. Give me wisdom and understanding and enrich my heart with patience, love, compassion, peace and unity.

Motivate me to always speak words of encouragement to my husband.  I trust that there will be complete honesty and open communication in our relationship and it will grow stronger each day.

I pray Father that our emotional and physical connection will be to each other only. When I fall short on areas of intimacy, connect me to my husband in that special way and bind us together, in love, with cords that cannot be broken.

1 Peter 4:8 – And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”

Declaration over your marriage

Lord Jesus, I know my steps are ordered and directed by You, and that my marriage has the blessings of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

I declare that faithfulness, peace, joy, health, strength and prosperity will sustain me, and my visions and dreams will be renewed as I mature in the ways of You.

I proclaim that Your favor will reign supreme in my life as I am eternally blessed. May Your purpose be fulfilled as I exemplify You in my marriage relationship.  

I thank You for the eternal blessings upon my marriage. In the name of Jesus Christ, my Everlasting Savior, SO BE IT…AMEN!

Peter 3:1-4 – Wives, likewise,be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear. Do not let your adornment be merely outward – arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel – rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.

  1. I have a prayer request My Wife filed for divorce. But I still pray that our marriage can be restored and We can come to reconciliation. For our 2 boys and bring our family together again. I can’t speak of her sins that something she has to take up the with Father. As I’m paying for sins! And I’ll take them gladly. Please pray for Me to be a better Man, a better person, a better Husband, a better father, and most importantly a better follower of our Lord Jesus Christ. In the Almighty name of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Amen

  2. Lord God, King of Kings, The one true God of unwavering love and Grace. As My wife and I face the struggles brought on by the world, I ask that your comfort and grace fill our hearts and minds. Blanket our home and children against any and all weapons of evil that may come against us. To be weary of ‘advice” from those that do not know you or the situations that face us. Keep our hearts and minds open to being humble and set pride aside so that we can continue to experience your love and blessing in our marriage.
    It is in My Lord Christ I pray for your favor. AMEN <

  6. I cannot even begin to explain what a blessing coming across this prayer and getting to read it in its entirety has been to me at this moment! Wednesday evening at 9:24 pm It’s as if you’ve taken my thoughts and put them into words spoken from my heart! This was truly guided by the Holy Spirit for me to read this… yes I saved it. But I actually took the time to write it in its entirety to make it part of my daily prayer! Thank you so much Bevjoy!

  7. Dear Bevjoy, this prayer is truly inspiring and which must touch the heart of every wife that reads it. Marriage’s are tested in so many ways, the church is a good foundation for marriage but their are so many things we do not learn until our marriage begins, your Holy Father is always there to help you to create a strong bond in marriage if you ask Him to, Praying together ( if you feel comfortable doing this ) as a couple is a wonderful way to begin to create that strong bond.
