You can return to a place of understanding, support, and deep affection by working together.
What is the best prayer for relationship?
The most powerful prayer for healing and restoring a relationship is praying for God’s guidance and wisdom. Ask Him to show you the root issues affecting your relationship and the best way to address them.
Pray for humility, patience, and the ability to see your own flaws. Ask God to soften your heart and help you forgive. Pray for your partner as well, asking God to work in their lives and prepare their hearts.
When praying, focus on speaking life, blessings, and reconciliation over the relationship. Replace negative words with positive ones.
Instead of praying, “God, repair this broken relationship,” pray, “God, restore this relationship to wholeness.” Speak what you want to see, not what is now. Faith-filled words have power.
Pray for reconciliation and unity
Pray for the willingness to forgive and be forgiven. Ask God to bind you together in love. Pray for reconciliation, harmony, and oneness of spirit.
A true child of God understands the meaning of forgiveness in a relationship. If you are unable to forgive, the relationship will not last.
Stand on God’s promise in Ephesians 4:3 to make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
Pray for wisdom and guidance
Ask God for wisdom and discernment to see the situation clearly and know the best steps to take. Pray for guidance in navigating difficult conversations.
Ask Him to show you creative solutions and give you the right words to say. God promises to give wisdom generously to all who ask Him.
Pray for healing and transformation
Ask God to heal past hurts, break destructive cycles, and transform your relationship. Pray for changed hearts and minds, as well as for old things to pass and new things to come.
Believe that God can do immeasurably more than all you ask or imagine to heal what seems broken and make all things new. With God, nothing is impossible. Keep praying and speaking life into your relationship. God is faithful!
