Prayer for When Your Spouse Leaves You

file0001355241709“Dear Lord, my spouse has left me and I feel completely broken. I never thought it would happen to me or to our family. My heart is broken in pieces and I feel completely lost. Lord, I feel anger for all the hurt that my husband/wife has caused in our lives. I cannot forgive him/her – but Lord I allow You to forgive him/her through me.  Each time I feel anger, bitterness, revenge, hate or any negative feeling remind me to allow your forgiveness to flow through me. 

Father, I ask  you to heal my wounded heart. Don’t allow me to let bitterness fester. Help me know that you still have a purpose for my life and for my family. I don’t know how but I still believe that this is all working out to good. Help me to see your divine purpose in all this. Help me to not speak negative or hateful words about my spouse but to relinquish control over them.

Lord, your Word tells us that anything that is broken you can fix. I pray for the healing of our marriage. Help me to change. Help me to see my faults. Help me to see my shortcomings. Help me to be a healer and not a hurter. Give me the power of the Holy Spirit to change more each day. 

I ask that you would come and fill my heart with the knowledge of  your love, your goodness and your faithfulness.  Remind me how valuable I am to  you. Let me literally feel your loving arms around me. Help me to always remember that you never leave me or forsake me. Help me to draw closer to you during this painful time.  Give me strength to continue on. I want to know you as the Lover of my Soul. I entrust my life and this relationship to you.”  In Jesus name I pray.  amen

Friend, as you were saying this prayer I was praying for you.
