1 Corinthians 16:14 King James Version (KJV)
14 Let all your things be done with charity.
Praying for ourselves in a relationship can be the best spiritual support we can give one another. In every relationship, couples owe one another a duty of care, and we must learn how to support one another through prayers. Also, friends and families and well-wishers can support couples by praying for them. The journey of forever is too long for anyone to spend with a wrong person; hence we must help ourselves in prayer. In this article we are going to be looking at powerful relationship prayers for couples.
For every relationship, God has a purpose for it. However, if the relationship should fail to yield good fruits, the purpose of God for it might be hindered. If couples will stay forever happy in a relationship, the bedrock of such a relationship must be built on Christ Jesus. God must be at the center of every relationship that should exist between couples.
God is interested in every relationship, just like He’s interested in our relationship with him. The purpose of our existence on earth is to have a consistent relationship with God. So, God has a great penchant for every relationship.
Just before anyone goes into a relationship, it is vital to seek the face of God for that relationship. A man must not be living in darkness when there is a God that can show light and tell us the purpose of everything. Even after seeking the face of God and you have His approval to go into that relationship, it is still important to always pray that the relationship will yield good fruits.
Also, as parents owe their children or wards a duty of prayer, whenever your son or daughter brings their spouse home, from that day, they deserve your prayer as parents. The prayer of parents has a powerful impact on the relationship life of their children.
It is also important to know some of the areas to focus on when praying for a couple’s relationships. The focus of our relationship should be centered around the following:
- Perfect Communication
- Undiluted love for God and one another
- General prayer
Prayer for Forgiveness
Lord Jesus, I pray that you will teach my spouse and me how to forgive one another. Grant unto the two of us the grace to forgive ourselves when we cross our one another.
Father Lord, teach us the process of forgiving one another. I know many times it is always difficult to forgive and forget almost immediately. But I believe with your help, you can teach us how to forgive ourselves.
Grant unto to us a peace of mind that we will not be tormented by the pain of the past in the name of Jesus.
I pray that you will teach us in your way to deal with conflicts between us, teach us how to forgive one another and move on with life. Help us to trust one another when we say we are sorry, grant us the grace to forgive ourselves just as you have forgiven us all our sins.
Prayer for Harmony/Unity
