A Prayer For Transformation In a Struggling Relationship
A struggling relationship is a source of immense emotional pain. If you’ve ever endured a broken marriage or a slowly-dwindling long-term dating relationship, you know how difficult it can be to find lasting reconciliation.
If this is you, the power of prayer may be just what you need.
Faith is a powerful thing, and appealing to God for the health of your relationship can have amazing results. Used in conjunction with other efforts, such as relationship counseling, prayer can be downright miraculous.
Rest assured that God hears your prayers, and that He cares about you. His answers may not always come in the form we expect, but they do come when we ask for help.
And sometimes, the very act of praying can bring about huge change in your life. When we pray, we take our abstract desires and put them into words. We say what we want out loud. Sometimes, that’s enough to help us make sense of our problems and go about finding the solutions—God works through natural means as much as He does through the miraculous.
But whichever way prayer works out for you, it’s always worth your time.
If you love your significant other, but can’t quite seem to make your relationship into what it should be, help is only a prayer away. Whether you pray alone, or with your partner, make it a habit. Pray daily.
God will hear your words, and although His help may come in unexpected ways, it will come. Remain open to help from all sources, and you’ll have the best chance of properly receiving an answer to your prayers.
If you’re struggling, there’s hope. Just ask for a little heavenly help.
Sometimes, what a relationship needs is nothing short of a total transformation. This might mean anything from a radical shift of worldview, to a new set of daily habits or a different way of dealing with emotions. But because we are creatures of habit, a total transformation is a difficult prospect.
It is possible, though, and God can help you and your partner to make the changes you need in order to heal your relationship. Here’s how to ask for help.
Lord, please help my partner and I to bear the Fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Let us be transformed by these qualities.
God, please give us the strength to make these qualities permanent habits. Let them be on our minds at all times, influencing all that we do and bringing healing to our relationship.
Lord, I realize that I must take ownership of my life and make changes necessary for a good relationship to happen. Please help me to change in the ways in which I must, and, just as importantly, to not change in the ways that I shouldn’t.
I love You, God. Amen.
