Prayer for Strength to Break Up A Relationship

When you are in a toxic relationship  (see post Toxic Relationships) there comes a  time when you have to decide whether it’s time to leave or stay. When you have done all that you can and the situation becomes harmful, abusive or unhealthy – it may be time to leave. Some relationships are not toxic – they may just not be the best for you. This prayer is for you to have strength, wisdom and understanding to do the right thing in your particular situation.


“Dear Lord I pray that today you would give me courage to do the right thing. Give me the courage to break off this relationship. I feel that it is best for me and all those involved that I get out of this situation. Give me wisdom in my decision. Grant me the power to go forward with my life, to face reality, to face my future and to trust in you.

Lord, I need you to surround me with your love, power and grace. Help me to not fear leaving this relationship. Help me to trust you for my provision and my protection. Open the eyes of my understanding to see all truth. 

I can do more than I think I can do. Lord help me to believe in myself, in You and in the strength you are now giving me to follow through with my decision. Help me to keep my heart and my mind pure. Reveal any area of my life that would be displeasing to you. In Jesus name I now command all fear to leave – I now choose to trust in the Lord with all my heart. Lord, I now leave the results in your hand. Your Word says that you honor those who honor you. As I do what is honorable and right I know that you will bless my decisions, you will provide for all my needs and in your time your will bring about blessings into my life. ”

In Jesus name I pray.  amen
