Prayer: A Wife’s Struggle – Praying for your Marriage


Almighty God, I give you all the praise and glory as I worship You in spirit and in truth. As I come humbly before Your throne of Grace, where I obtain mercy, I pray that my journey in married life, would be renewed. Restore my marriage to new heights, Oh Lord.

Ecclesiastes 4:12 – A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.

Isaiah 43:2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

Stress in my marriage

Heavenly Father, the stresses of life 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 Corinthians 13:4-8 – Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away

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

  6. Father Lord, may your name be praised for ever and ever. Nothing gives me joy as seeing married people who are strong in faith and who entrsust their unions to God. I learnt from my parents that the union of marriage is a mystery and a journey of everyday commitment, understanding each other, faith, respect and love that grows from loving Christ especially after more than 40years in holy matrimony. While I not married but pray God everyday to find the one He has destined for me, I join all the marriage women here in prayers and pray for happy homes for you and your partners and families. May you always take all your ‘encounters’ to God in Prayers. If I may suggest, the movie “War Room” is a relevant piece for married women and or couples to watch. May we all find favour in God and be blessed always.. Amen

My husband is cheating again Lord and is very painful, he no longer care much about me and the kids Lord, he always outside spending time out there and now he enjoys sleeping on the couch Lord. This year is our 10years anniversary in marriage but it looks as if is 10years of sorrow, Lord please intervene in my marriage because is about to fall apart as now I’m so weak and I’m losing hope also. Please dont let our enemies rejoice seeing us breaking/falling apart, in Jesus Christ name, Amen…

  14. 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!

    1. I am really happy that this prayer touched you at the point of your need. The Holy Spirit is always working! God bless!

  15. 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.

  16. I love the prayers and the prayer points please if you don’t mind I will want to be touch with you and your church, I am a beliver too
    Thanks God bless you and your team,

  17. Almighty Father,
    Indeed it’s a great struggle for a wife
    To keep a marriage whole and strong
    She being the backbone of the husband
    Bless her Lord with all Your grace to know
    With Your heart and love she could win it all.
