Wouldn’t it be wonderful if people were easier?

If every parent, child, sibling, spouse, neighbor, and friend could get along blissfully?

But we don’t. Relationships are messy!

And unfortunately, some end in brokenness.

Everyone I know has had at least one relationship end unpleasantly and many that had ended painfully leaving heart scars behind.

Because…

The closer the relationship the deeper the wound when it ends.

I’m guessing you have someone who came to mind … some strained or broken relationship that causes you sadness or heartache.

So, today I’m going to the Lord to pray for my broken relationships and I’d like to invite you to join me and pray for yours as well.

The closer the relationship the deeper the wound when it ends. #Prayer #Brokenheart

5 Helpful Verses to Pray for Your Broken Relationships

Romans 15:5–6

May the patience and encouragement that come from God allow you to live in harmony with each other the way Christ Jesus wants. Then you will all be joined together, and you will give glory to God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. (NCV)

Father, Your Word tells me you want us to “live in harmony” with each other. What a good word. We don’t have to “sing in unison” we just need to blend well — not always agreeing but listening to understand and work together. Help me! I can be so stubborn. Please forgive me. I often think of how much better life could be if everyone just agreed with me. But You made us each unique and wonderful. Help me listen. Help me love like Jesus. Please work in my heart and the hearts of those who have grown distant and heal what is broken for our good and Your glory. Amen.

James 3:2

We all make many mistakes. If people never said anything wrong, they would be perfect and able to control their entire selves, too. (NCV)

Father, Your word says, “everyone sins.” It also says, our tongues “are wild and evil and full of deadly poison.” It shouldn’t surprise us when we hurt each other with words and actions. Please forgive me for the thoughtless and unkind word I’ve said or thing I’ve done. And help me forgive _________ for the things he/she did that hurt me. We need You. Amen.

Ephesians 4:32

Be kind and loving to each other, and forgive each other just as God forgave you in Christ. (NCV)

Father, forgiveness is hard, especially when I’m hurt and angry. I want to be kind and loving consistently but oh my, I fail. And when I come to You sorry for the things I’ve said and done, I trust Your faithful love and amazing grace to forgive me. I need Your help to forgive _________. Please fill me with Your Spirit. Remind me of the countless times You have forgiven me and tender my heart to be more forgiving.

Father, I also ask that you would help _________ forgive me. Give me the courage I need to humble myself and repent of any pain I’ve caused. Restore what is broken by Your grace. Amen.

Psalm 27:14

Wait for the Lord’s help. Be strong and brave, and wait for the Lord’s help. (NCV)

Father, this is hard. I don’t wait well. I want to do or say something that will magically fix this. Help me remember that You may be using this time to work on me and to work on ___________. I don’t want to get in the way of what you’re doing but I get so impatient. It sometimes takes more courage and strength to wait than it does to act. So, I will come to You today and every day asking for Your guidance. Help me wait when that is Your will and then, help me know when and how to act when the time is right. I need Your help. Amen.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if people were easier? If every parent, child, sibling, spouse, neighbor, and friend could get along blissfully? But we don't. 5 Helpful Verses to Pray for Your Broken #Relationships #Blessings

Colossians 3:12

God has chosen you and made you His holy people. He loves you. So you should always clothe yourselves with mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. (NCV)

Father, I need a wardrobe adjustment. When I think about how often I fail to wear mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience … I’m ashamed! And You love me even with my tattered attire. With Your help, I believe _________ and I can do a better job of loving each other. So, today I’m asking You to show me where I need to do better and love well. Heal our hearts, Father. Help us forgive. Help us to love like Jesus and by Your grace, heal our relationship. In Jesus name, Amen.

  1. TGIF Deb! I have been praying Exodus 14:14 for the past 8 months because of a difficult relationship that I know God is calling me to release to Him. Waiting for Him to work while I invite Him to refine me has been one of the most difficult journeys for me. It required more strength and bravery to wait than to take things into my own hands. I so appreciate these truths and your prayers!

  2. I pray for one of these daily. I give it all I have and then I give it to God. Thanks for sharing these prayer suggestions and may I add may those who have a broken relationship with Christ be awakened to the truth of what they are choosing! Thanks for hosting!

  3. When I think of broken relationships, I immediately think of Joseph. He had every right to be angry at his brothers for selling him into slavery. BUT he chose to follow each one of these areas you mentioned, and it ended in a God-only story of reconciliation and the saving of many. Thank you for reminding us to take the road less traveled, Deb!

  6. Dear Deb~
    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating this page. When I came across it looking for prayers for my broken relationship it touched my heart and I started crying while reading it. I’m going to add the Psalm 27:14 prayer to my prayers.
    Just under a year ago my fiancé called of our engagement and our 3 year relationship. We’re both religious and I really feel deep down that God brought us together and we’re meant to be together. It’s like this knowing I’ve never experienced in relationships before. We each had some relationship lessons to learn and I wish we could have learned them together but it seems God and my ex had other plans. My ex is deployed to Korea and he has not communicated with me for months. I still deeply love him and am impatiently wanting to reconcile our relationship. Could I ask for prayers that God has been using this time to work on both of us and our hearts, for my patience during his work, and that one day we will be able to reconcile our relationship. Thank you again!!

    1. Alicia, Thank you so much for stopping to share your heart and bless me with the honor of praying for you! I am definitely adding you to my prayers. God is working! I wrote this post after being rejected by people I loved with all my heart. I wish I could tell you that those relationships are restored. They are not… but God has filled my life with so many blessings and so much love, I am whole. I’m praying that for you. That He will pour blessings and love into your life and make your heart whole once again. Hugs!

      1. Deb, Thank you for your tremendously kind, understanding, and thoughtful response!! It was so compassionate of you to share your journey and it was encouraging to hear your heart has since been healed and made whole. As you know it’s a difficult journey. This has definitely been the most challenging journey of my life and has shaken my faith and it’s comforting to know that God is working. It’s like the Footprints poem – God carries us when we can’t do it ourselves. I’m so grateful and thankful for you, your ministry, and your prayers. It’s clear God works through people! Thank you so much again!!

  7. Please pray for my relationship with JB. We are struggling and i know with God’s intervention we can get thru this and ne stronger than before.

  8. Please pray for my relationship of 23 years. My partner and I are living together but seperated at the time and have our 3 wonderful children living with us ages 22, 19,16. Your prayers all help! Thank you.

  9. I ask that you pray for I Victoria sosa and Micheal Morales to help each other forgive and love one another as well to help Micheal morales find Jesus. Please pray to heal our broken relationship we have been together on and off for 7 years always break up in a ugly way please help us find a way to heal us and create a healthy loving relationship. To help us love each other through the bad times and most important have each other back instead of turning on one another. Please pray for us because I love this man dearly. Pray for anyone that has tried to tare us apart. That they find peace.

  10. Prayer for my heart as we are going through a “break” or the distance between us and it hurts. Pray for the relationship and love to return better than before…or for a healing heart if the path God has is different that what i see in front of me right now.

  11. My relationship keeps falling apart , its like my boyfriend let me feel as if he isn’t in control all the time it can’t work, he called it off few days ago saying he don’t think we can work, did I mention I was pregnant . He said a lot of mean stuffs to me n idk if I can forgive him but some part of me wants to if he even tries to come back. I ask that u will pray for us and our unborn child to mend us stronger than before n that we understand each other more.

  12. I came across this looking for relationship prayers. I am asking for prayers for me and my significant other. When we met it was like lightning and I fell in love with him as did he. We’ve been together for several months and he asked and asked me to move in and he just started to change when I am trying to heal from a very bad injury. I started to fight with him over him breaking his word then instead of him trying he started to withdraw and the we fought over the relationship and it seems and feels like he’s seeing someone else. We tried to make an agreement to be like we were but he will not keep his side and I’m hurt every day. I said I didn’t want to be a live in girlfriend because of my beliefs and he mentioned marriage and a bunch of stuff now it feels like he’s not really trying emotionally or romantically. But doesn’t want me to fight with him. I have been praying that our relationship is healed and that God please change his heart to follow him and that if he is cheating he will have his heart changed and that we can have a true chance to love one another. That we can be healed of brokenness and a miracle can happen so that we can be happy together. Please pray it hurts deeply and I do love him but I don’t feel like he is in love with me or even loves me. I get emotional rejection and he doesn’t try to have a connection. I am confused why I am here and have been praying for God to show me and strengthen me and show me what I need to work on. I pray to be changed but him too as I believe that God can do all things please pray a prayer of faith for us and healing of our relationship.

    1. Kaley, I’m so sorry you are going through this difficult time. I am praying for healing for your body and your relationship. Asking God to guide you and give you wisdom as you seek His will in the days ahead. Relationships are hard and I’ve learned that the closer we both are to the Lord, the closer we are to each other. God bless you in the days and weeks ahead!
