“A Prayer for Relationships”

I have felt the need to write lately and so I asked God earlier today to put on my heart what needed to be said. He waited until late tonight but he reminded me of so many that need healing right now. This is my prayer for them…

Dear God,

I come to you in prayer for the many women I know who are struggling with relationships right now in this very moment. I pray for comfort and healing in their lives. I pray that you give them strength to love the men in their lives, even when it isn’t easy. I pray that you cover them with your love, mercy and grace. Lord, we know that Your word says that it was not good for man to be alone so You created woman. Help her to feel compassion towards him and to be a comfort even when it is the farthest thing from her mind and to forgive, even when it feels impossible. Give her self-control to extinguish harsh words before they are expressed and a positive attitude to fight insecurities. Open the door to communication that would bring peace to her home.

I pray as well, Lord, for the men in these ladies’ lives. I pray that you would move in their hearts so that they may love her like you love her. We know that temptation, anger, jealousy and selfishness often create a stronghold in these mens lives. Release them from these entanglements and convict them when they are wrong. Grant them patience to handle her insecurities and understanding when she is hurting. I pray that your spirit would guide them to become the men your created them to be. To be more like you.

Lord, I pray that you would meet them where they are and that your Holy Spirit would comfort and guide these couples and that broken hearts would be mended. We know that you are love and without you, love cannot survive. I pray that anger and bitterness would be replaced by kind words and comfort. That compassion would flow between them and that healing and forgiveness come quickly.

In Your Holy Name,

Amen.
