Bible Verses for Deeply Troubled Marriage
If your marriage is under strain from an external source, you could offer God a prayer for marriage under attack to ask Him to bring you both back closer than before.
Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins – Peter 4:8
This verse offers good advice for any relationship, but it is especially relevant for marriages that are going through a tough time. The Bible tells us that marriage is a sacred covenant between two people and that it should be respected and protected.
When a marriage is in trouble, it can be tempting to point fingers and blame the other person. But that is not what God wants us to do. He wants us to show deep love for each other. Yes, that can be easier said than done but striving to do this helps us live by the words of God.
Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well-advised is wisdom – Proverbs 13:10
In this verse, the Bible tells us that pride is the cause of contention. This is often true in marriages, as well.
When spouses are proud, they are more likely to argue and have difficulty resolving their differences. The Bible also tells us that wisdom is needed to avoid such problems. In troubled marriages, it is often difficult for couples to find common ground.
God can help to save a marriage from falling apart. He can give couples the wisdom they need to resolve their differences and grow closer together. With God’s help, marriages can be healed and made whole again. He can bring them even closer than before.
