Dear Heavenly Father,
I come to you today with a heavy heart, burdened by the increasing number of broken homes and divorces in our world. Lord, I pray that you would intervene in the marriages of your children, and that you would heal and restore all that has been broken.
You designed marriage to be a reflection of your love for us, and I pray that all marriages would reflect that unconditional love that only you can give.
Lord, I pray against the spirit of divorce and pray for the power of your love to overcome every challenge that couples may face in their marriage. Let them seek you in every situation, and let them find strength and courage in your word to love and cherish each other.
I pray that you would help couples to see the true meaning of marriage, that it is not just a legal contract but a covenant between two individuals and You. May they be reminded that marriage is meant to be a life-long commitment, founded on trust, respect, and most importantly, love.
Lord, I pray for those homes that have already been broken, and that you would heal the wounds of those affected by it. May your love and peace be with them and help them to reconcile and restore what has been lost.
I pray that you would raise up family altars again and that you would be the foundation for every home. Help parents to lead their families in prayer and the study of your word, so that every member of the family will know you and grow in faith. Let them find wisdom, patience and love to raise children in the way of the Lord and to be good role models for their children.
May every home be a place where your presence dwells and your love flows. May every couple experience the joy and blessings of marriage, knowing that it is a gift from you.
I pray all of these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
