Do you need a miracle to recover from betrayal? Powerful prayers that work for healing from betrayal—like a spouse's infidelity or a friend's backstabbing—are those that you pray with faith, believing that God can perform miracles and inviting God and his angels to do so as you deal with the aftermath of the affair or another kind of betrayal.

Here's an example of how to pray for miraculous healing to recover after someone you've trusted has betrayed you.

This is an original prayer. You can use it to inspire you in your own prayers, modifying it as suits your situation.

This prayer can help you avoid further emotional damage from bitterness and negative desires for revenge. It may seem like a miracle right now that you won't suffer from these emotions forever.

Prayer For Healing From Betrayal

"Dear God, thank you for always being faithful to me. I can always count on you to love me completely and unconditionally. Thank you for being perfectly trustworthy. I can always rely on you to do what's best for me and help me with whatever I need. Please help me remember that you are here for me even when others betray me.

You know all of the painful thoughts and feelings I'm dealing with after being betrayed by [mention your specific situation here]. I can't believe this happened to me. It hurts so much to have someone I thought I could trust do this to me.

God, I need a miracle to find peace after what I've been through. Please give me that peace so I can think about the betrayal from your perspective and control my emotions rather than having them control me.

My loving Father in heaven, I know you agree that betrayal is wrong and are just as upset as I am about what has happened to me.

But I also know that you want me to forgive [name the person who betrayed you]. Honestly, I don't want to forgive, but I don't want to hurt myself more by holding onto bitterness or pursuing revenge. Empower me to forgive by letting go of the offense and trusting you to bring justice to the situation in the right ways and at the right times. Please free me from the burden of holding onto a grudge and help me move on with my life well.

God, I confess that this betrayal has damaged my confidence. I feel insecure and blame myself for mistakes I made in the relationship before I was betrayed. I wonder what I could have done differently to prevent this betrayal from happening. Please steer me away from wasting my time and energy living in the past, and help me focus now on how I can best move into a better future. Remind me of how valuable I am as a person, and let me sense your love for me in tangible ways, such as an encouraging message from a guardian angel that you have assigned to care for me.

As I move forward with the other relationships in my life, help me not to punish those who have goodwill toward me by assuming that they will betray me like [your spouse, your friend, etc.] did.

Help me to trust the people I know who are treating me well. After I've worked through the forgiveness process with [the person who betrayed you], help me to rebuild trust in our relationship gradually over time, if he or she is willing to change and reconcile with me.

Show me people who can support me as I recover from this betrayal, such as a counselor, a clergy person, friends, and family members who are caring and trustworthy. Thank you for them; please bless them for their help.

My faithful God, I love you and look forward to enjoying your true love every day of my life. Amen."
