God meant for us to be in a loving relationship. But unlike in movies and fairy tales where the couple lives happily ever after, there are ups and downs in a real relationship, even among Christian couples. To prepare for the eventual challenges, lift up a prayer for relationship strengthening with God.
Whether you are married or just preparing to get married, it’s vital to lay strong foundations for your relationship so you can enjoy the highs and navigate the lows of every relationship. Prayer is the key to building those strong foundations.
Let us pray.
Prayer To Strengthen A Relationship
God our Father in Heaven, we stand before You in prayer, humble before Your great presence. We pray for those wanting to strengthen the most important relationship in their lives.
Lord Jesus, You said that whenever two or three are gathered in Your Name, there You will be. We humbly ask for Your presence beside us.
We know that the prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective, yet we claim no righteousness of our own other than the righteousness of our Lord Jesus.
We thank You that You have given these couples the desire to strengthen their relationship. In this broken world where people go after disposable relationships, You have raised them to be models for others to emulate.
Be at the center of their relationship, Lord. Guide them in everything they do. Protect them from the lies of the enemy. Do not let them be tempted to do things that will hurt the other.
Keep the marriage bed pure. Do not allow any temptation of the enemy to come between them. Instead, may they enjoy knowing each other deeply, and may they have a desire only for each other.
And if they are not yet married, help them to keep their sexual purity. Give them a spirit of self-control and lead them away from situations that can cause them to stumble into sin.
Bless them with rich blessings so that all their needs are met. Do not let finances be the stumbling block to their relationship. Instead, let them work together to be a channel of blessings for their family, friends, and the poor around them.
Bless them with infinite mercy, patience, and understanding for the times when they make mistakes and hurt each other. Help them to forgive each other seven times seventy-seven times. Prevent them from speaking words that hurt and instead open their lines of communication with each other.
May they create a home that is safe for each other. May they always support each other and keep their vows to love each other no matter the circumstance.
May every stone they lay in the foundation of their relationship be laid on top of the stones laid by Jesus. May You guide them and be with them always, in Jesus’ name we pray. And God’s people said, “Amen!”.
Is there any obstacle standing in between your relationship? Pray that those obstacles be removed.
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. – Peter 4:8
