Pray for Marriages (Heal the Impossible)

Greetings Prayer Warriors,

For those in painful and difficult marriages, they know anguish, frustration, hurt, fading hope, and even sometimes despair. When one is in such emotional pain, ending the marriage always feels like the right thing to do. They may wonder and doubt if God can make something that seems so ugly, beautiful again.

This is precisely the reason we pray, because we know God can do all things. When one is in the desert, it’s difficult for them to see a way out. So we will pray in union with those in most need.

For those who doubt their marriage can be saved, give them the faith to pray, 

“For nothing will be impossible for God.” Luke 1:37

For those who are frustrated by the difficulty of their relationship, may they realize they are in the company of His disciples when they surrender to the will of God and pray,

“Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me.” Matthew 16:24

For those whose anguish is paralyzing, may they be comforted by His promise,

“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28

For those who are married couples losing hope, increase their faith as they meditate on Christ’s words,

“Your faith has saved you; go in peace.” Luke 7:50

For those experiencing deep loneliness in their marriages, may they put themselves in His presence, experience His tender love, and hear Him whisper,

“And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20

St. Jude, powerful intercessor and patron saint of impossible causes, hear our prayers for marriage and take them to the feet of Jesus!

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet
