Praying for your marriage is a beautiful blessing that we get to declare together. May these powerful prayer points for marriage increase your prayer life with your spouse!

When it comes to praying for your marriage, I believe there is a special kind of connection that happens with your spouse when you are able to not only pray together but also have specific prayer points for marriage.

The gospel states that when two or three gather in His name, God is with them. Not only is there power in agreement, there is a surge of intimacy that radiates with the Lord. In other words, praying for your marriage together is epic because He shows up. 

Matthew 18:20 New International Version (NIV) For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”

In my post on Prayer Points, I introduce my first of hopefully many series on prayer points. Since I already explain what it means to pray, why it is important to pray, and examples on how to pray, I will encourage you to check out that post for more details.

It is important to recognize that a healthy marriage takes a lot of effort, love, and grace. If you think about it, two distinctively unique human beings are being united forever. Forever is a long time to experience many of life’s adventures, challenges, and miracles together. 

This goes without saying that in the midst of forever, it can also be easy to become distracted, discouraged, and even disappointed at one another. If not careful, a marriage can hurt, break, and change your love for each other. 

A relationship that is based out of love can quickly turn into fear. This is why I believe that prayers for married couples that cover prayer for guidance, prayer for marriage restoration, spiritual warfare prayers for marriage, and prayer for healing are crucial to help navigate and protect through the uncertainties and disappointments that may arise in marriages. 

Furthermore, I firmly believe that it is equally (if not more important) to take time to declare marriage prayers when you experience miracles, testimonies, and victories. 

My husband and I pray blessing of the marriage every moment either of us feel inspired to praise and worship God. It has become such an organic and natural part of our lifestyle because we recognize that none of what we have would be possible (nor as good) if it wasn’t for God. 

It is through our passion and priority to pray together that allows us to grow stronger in our relationship not only with each other but also with God. Intercessory prayer for our marriage gives us hope to believe in His power to show up even when we may feel afraid, confused, and hopeless. As a result a powerful prayer life with your spouse equips you to operate from a place of love and not fear recognizing that He is good

For example, one of the struggles my husband and I had to overcome was our disappointments for not being able to conceive a baby early in our marriage. We hoped and dreamed of being parents so badly that when it was not happening right away, we became worried, frustrated, and discouraged. 

According to US News, studies have shown that infertile couples are three times more likely to divorce more often that those who don’t (SOURCE). In short, many marriages that experience infertility or miscarriages result in divorce because it may mean a loss of dreams and expectations of having children. 

Rather than allowing statistics, emotions, and fear dictate our relationship, we turned to Jesus. Prayer about marriage with my husband brought peace to our hearts. Not that we simply accepted infertility; rather, we chose to trust God in His timing regardless of outcome because we knew that God loves us beyond our wildest dreams. 

As we continued to use prayer points for marriage with bible verses, the truths of His word trumped the insecurities of our emotions. 

Prayer truly is powerful and lifegiving. Through our commitment to pray for God’s peace, hope, and joy regarding a baby, it has truly strengthened our relationship to support each other as well as face other challenges together.

1 Corinthians 13 The Message (MSG)
Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.
