If your marriage is struggling, invite GOD to be part of it. It just might make all the difference.


Marriage can be a wonderful thing, especially when a husband and wife take their vows seriously and truly learn to love honor and cherish one another. But even in the best of marriages, there will be times when couple won’t always agree. To get any marriage to flourish, invite GOD to be a part of it. God will do all he can do help your marriage. All that is required of you is to ask him for it.

Here are things you can plead to God for in prayer that can help your marriage.


God’s guidance:- Not only does God see the bigger picture, but he knows your heart and the heart of your companion. He knows your thoughts and your motivations. Ask for God’s guidance and listen to his spirit before making your decisions.


Understanding heart:- Many conflicts arise in marriage because of a lack of understanding. It is difficult to put ourselves in the place of another because we are not them. Because of this, it is important that when we are asking God for help, we ask him to give us an understanding heart. We need the ability to understand our spouse so we are more able to relate to them.


Wisdom:- Wisdom is not just having knowledge; it’s being able to make good judgments. In marriage, it is important that we gather all the facts before we make any judgment calls. Open communication will give you knowledge and as you pray for wisdom, you will be able to use that knowledge to make good and fair judgments calls.


A spirit of peace:- Contention can destroy any marriage. Asking God for a spirit of peace will help give you the ability to face conflict without the contention. It will give you the desire to correct the problem without wanting to seek revenge. When you face contention with a spirit of peace, you’re better at listening.


Disposition to see good:- When you are living with someone, it is easy to start seeing all their faults. It is difficult, however to see the good qualities of a person if you are constantly focusing on the bad. Ask God to help you see the good in your spouse. The good qualities become your focus and the things that annoy you tend to get smaller and smaller.


Attitude of gratitude:- Showing gratitude for your spouse is one of the greatest things you can do for them. Ask God to help you show gratitude, not only for who they are, but for what they do for you.


A willingness to forgive:- In every marriage, there are going to be times when your spouse is going to do something that you are going to have to forgive him for. The truth is, if you want your spouse to forgive your weaknesses, it is important that you are willing to forgive his. Forgiving is not always easy, but if you ask God for help, you will have the ability to forgive and to be forgiven.


The capacity to love:- Love keeps your marriage together. When everything around you seems to be falling apart, it is the love that you share with your spouse that will help you keep things together. When your marriage starts to struggle, ask God, above all, to help you love your spouse.
