A Prayer for a Marriage Miracle

"Dear God, so much has happened (for better and for worse) since I've gotten married. Thank you for always being present with my spouse and me through everything. We need you, the source of all love, to help us fix the damage to our relationship that has been caused by [mention the specific issues here].

Our marriage needs a miracle right now. I feel hurt and frustrated by what's happened, and I confess that sometimes I doubt that our marriage can really be repaired. Please send me and my spouse a fresh dose of hope to help us believe that our marriage can improve. Open our hearts to you, each other, and your holy angels, so that we can fully receive the blessings you want to send us.

Guide us step by step to help us learn how to change our attitudes and actions with each other so that our relationship becomes stronger. Empower us through your Spirit to forgive each other for our mistakes and to choose each new day to treat each other with love, respect, and kindness.

Rekindle the spark of romantic attraction between us and keep the fire of our sexual relationship burning brightly for each other (and no one else). Inspire us with fresh ideas to express our love for each other sexually in ways that fulfill both of us. Empower us to avoid temptations to sin in ways that can damage our sexual relationship with each other (such as indulging in pornography or affairs). Help us focus on each other and maintain a passionate relationship within our marriage.

Give us the wisdom we need to communicate clearly with each other and better understand each other. Help us consistently invest time and energy into our marriage—despite other demands like work and parenting—so that our emotional connection won't be neglected. Surround us with caring and trustworthy people who will encourage and support us as we work to build a better marriage. Help us both to stay focused on you as our top priority each day. Lead us in the same direction together: closer to you.

I believe that you can choose to do anything to improve our marriage if both of us are willing to cooperate with your work. Thank you for answering my prayer; I trust in your complete and unconditional love for both of us and look forward to whatever miracles you may bring into our marriage."
