26 Bible Verses on Marriage Restoration: (Prayer + Scriptures)

A broken home and marriage is not God’s plan.

The devil always has a way of causing pain in our lives.

It is quite shameful and disheartening that your marriage isn’t working as it should.

But through bible verses on marriage restoration, you can rescue your marriage from the devil.

These bible verses have the ability to open your heart to believe again.

I understand the shame you may be going through.

But God can remove shame from you and disappoint your enemies.

A friend of mine who worships at my church had similar issues.

She has been married for years now with two kids.

Unfortunately, over the last few years, her marriage has been going down the drain.

There was no love between her and her husband anymore.

Her husband couldn’t provide for the family as he continued wasting limited resources on frivolities.

She couldn’t bear the pain and frustration of single-handedly taking care of the children.

And gradually, she started being misled by the devil.

She started seeing other men just to raise some funds to take care of the family.

This even made things worse as the husband got to know and physically abused her.

But despite their problems as a family, over the past few months, things have changed appreciably.

Through prayers, they have made considerable improvements in their home.

If you are struggling with your marriage, God can take away your shame and return your husband or wife to you.

I have put together bible verses on marriage restoration to motivate you.

4 Important Christian tips for marriage restoration

1.  Stay positive with prayer

Are trusting God to restore your marriage?

You cannot believe in God and not pray.

In times of trouble, we must seek God’s help for solutions.

Every marriage covenant is tested from time to time.

And we must be resilient and understand the ways of the devil.

If you’ve lost your husband or wife to another man or woman, you must pray for God’s intervention.

And when you have prayed, you must have faith in God’s power to rescue your marriage.

I have had multiple issues with my wife, and there was a time our marriage was completely broken.

While I had lost complete interest in the whole thing, my wife was praying for the restoration of love.

She wanted me to love her as I used to.

And mysteriously, by the grace of God, we resolved our differences.

So, today, you have to pray with an expectation.

You have to pray to overcome this huge temptation.

God in his infinite mercies will guard your hearts and strengthen you in these trying times.

2.  Wives, be submissive and faithful

This is one of the major reasons for marriage issues.

Don’t get me wrong, men have their problems too.

But women are the backbone of every family.

They unite the home and keep the family going in hard times.

The man is the head of the family.

This arrangement is set up by God (and therefore must be obeyed).

So, if you let yourself be submissive to your husband, it is always unlikely there will be any issues.

3.  Men love your wives

There is no two ways about it.

Men must love their wives to make a union work.

If you cant provide and care for your wife and family, you are like an infidel (in God’s eyes).

So, you must be focused on your family and responsibilities.

Besides caring for the family, infidelity can completely traumatize any union.

Why should anyone cheat on his or her partner?

God hates adultery – that is; the sin committed when married people cheat on their wives.

We must return to our spouses and beg for forgiveness.

There is no reason to feel ashamed.

God is willing to set you free of your iniquities and return you to glory.


4.  Be prepared to forgive and let go

I have been cheated on in the past (before getting married), and I know how it feels.

Your world seems to stop, and nothing can make you happy.

The thoughts of your husband/wife, whom you love so much, cheating with another person, is so painful.

But irrespective of your frustrations, you can forgive and let go.

However, if you can’t continue to trust your husband or wife anymore, God allows divorce in cases of infidelity.

Marriage restoration prayer to heal your marriage

Today, we are going to pray for your family, husband, wife, and your children.

There are many ways the devil will affect our lives and take away our happiness.

And that’s why, even when things are obviously bad, we must believe in God’s ability to heal our marriage.

This isn’t time to accept the current state of your marriage.

Does it feel like there is no way he or she is coming back to you?

or are you worried that all your effort will not change your partner’s mind?

And what about your kids?

Have you lost hope of having a united family with love, happiness, and unity?

This is why we must pray to God and ask that he heals your marriage and restore it to that precious and lovely moment you both set your eyes on each other.

AT this point, it is important to remember that there are no impossibilities with God.

This is why you need to search through the scriptures to help your mind reconnect to God.

You need to see that God has always been there for you and wants you to be happy.

How do I begin to ask God to restore my Marriage


Monday 3rd of October 2022

I will pray for all the comments I read. I love my wife so much. She ran of to South Africa with my daughter because I was cheating and abusive. Christ walked into my life thereafter and I realized how lost I was. I have been learning to be a better person before all else. I need my wife and daughter as I realize more than ever that I love them. I pray daily for deliverance and their hearts to heal. Please pray for my marriage and ask God to remind my wife how much I love her and will never go back to the life I lived.


Friday 12th of August 2022

Thank you so much for the scriptures. I have written them and I'll be declaring them everyday. I have been married for less than a year. Had a disagreement with my husband and he told his family and they returned me to my parent's house. I am really wounded and I am praying that God restores my marriage. Its been hard though trusting God but not knowing whether it won't lead to a worser heartbreak. I love my husband and I want things to work between us. Remember us in your prayers.
