1. Trust in God to solve your marriage problems

Each time you are dealing with troubles in your marriage, don’t walk alone.

The very first thing you need to do is to pray to God.

The scriptures say,

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
 in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.

Proverbs 3:5-6

There are no marital problems God cannot solve.

Is it infidelity, monetary issues, or lack of communication?

God can heal your marriage and bring back joy and happiness to you.

Personally, I have found out that talking to a counselor or seeking others’ help for my family problems worsens the whole thing.

Hence, each time we have issues, I quickly ask God for a solution.

Here are powerful bible verses to trust in God for your marriage problems.

Psalm 37:5

Commit your way to the Lord;
    trust in him and he will do this:

Jeremiah 17:7-8

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
    whose confidence is in him.

Proverbs 28:26

Those who trust in themselves are fools,
    but those who walk in wisdom are kept safe.

Psalm 37:3

Trust in the Lord and do good;
    dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

Psalm 62:8

Trust in him at all times, you people;
    pour out your hearts to him,
    for God is our refuge.

Isaiah 26:3-4

You will keep in perfect peace
    those whose minds are steadfast,
    because they trust in you.
Trust in the Lord forever,
    for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.

Isaiah 12:2

Surely God is my salvation;
    I will trust and not be afraid.
The Lord, the Lord himself, is my strength and my defense[a];
    he has become my salvation.”

2.  Forgive your spouse and let go

This is one of the most critical steps to save your marriage.

You must be willing to forgive your spouse of all wrongdoing.

There are no two ways about it.

If you don’t forgive and forget, you can never get your marriage to where it used to be.

But you may be wondering, why should I be the one to forgive him/her?

I have been there in the past.

The last time I had serious issues with my wife, I had to make sacrifices to save my marriage.

I had to forgive her wholeheartedly for peace in my home.

Here are forgiving bible verses to save marriage.

Ephesians 4:32

 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Colossians 3:12

 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.

Colossians 3:13

13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.

1 Peter 3:8

 Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble.

1 Peter 3:9

Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.

Matthew 6:14-15

 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

2 Corinthians 2:10

Anyone you forgive, I also forgive. And what I have forgiven—if there was anything to forgive—I have forgiven in the sight of Christ for your sake,

Luke 6:35

But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.

Pls, I need a prayer for myself and my husband. My marriage is tearing about. My husband has changed and listen to hear say. Pls pray for me for perfect restoration of my marriage. My marriage is just 3 yrs old.


Friday 17th of June 2022

Please pray for my husband, Mike and myself. We are married for 11 years and I want to stay married. My husband cheated on me with many women for so many years and I forgave him when I first found out and then he did it again and of course I forgave him again. And he did it again recently, and I have yet to forgive him because this time, he not just broke my trust towards him, my heart, but my respect and my most of all scarred me deep. He was emailing, texting, talking, and seeing more than four women. He has spoken so bad about me to them, he tells them how my first partner treated me like crap, he told them how he’s the only one that cooks and cleans the house. I never help out around the house and that is not true at all, all of the things he spoke to them about me, were lies!! I have treated him like every man would love to be treated besides when I’m in so much pain, I can’t or won’t give. But other than that, I cook, clean, pack his lunch or breakfast for work, get his work clothes ready every morning. Prepare breakfast or any meal for my husband, mind you, I always dish his meal for him, he doesn’t have to lift a finger. When I prepare breakfast or what ever meal, I always will set the table and when we are done eating, I take his plate away and put everything away, wash the dishes. Every time he’s going somewhere, I always place his clothing on the bed to include his undies, shirt, and socks. So tell me now what have I done bad. I don’t work, so I’m at home everyday, cleaning and just waiting for to come home from work. And then when he’s at work, lucky if I get a call, I have to call or text him to ask him to call me to check up on me, why? Why do I have to do that but yet he has time to text or email his other affairs. I’m so deeply hurt but I want to work my marriage, I want to work it out. Please ask God to help me over come this, I know God won’t give us anything we can’t handle. Anyways, so he begged, asking to work things out, he says he wants to do what it takes to save our marriage. Honestly, I never stopped loving him, I love him so very much! I want this marriage to work. I am asking for prayers for my husband, I need for him to focus on his wife and marriage and to fight satan!! He needs to control himself around the temptations. He needs guidance, strength, healing, and all the prayers that you can provide. I am also asking for prayers for myself, I asking for, healing, strength, and all prayers you can provide. I’m sorry this is so long, I can go on and on. I mean he has done so many things behind my back that his affairs knew and I’m just knowing about it, how sad huh? Thanks I’m advance for your prayers!! 🙏🏼🙏🏼

Please pray for my husband, his name is Les , 57 ys. old white male. He is not a believer. Very selfish, very pride, very hot temper, anger issue, and trust issue. He used to married a very promiscuous woman. 2 times (same woman) she bought a lot of stuff for him to covered her guilt. she cheated on him so many times. After all, she left him again, they divorced 3 yrs. before he met me. I had never met that ex. but he take all bitter on me. Worst yet, he is listen to his sister who try to break my marriage. His older sister take advantage on him in so many ways, now she want to come between us because my husband never had a child. she expect if any thing happen to him, she night get it. she has child, and grand child. PLEASE ask God to open my husband's eyes. and see through his greedy sister. He paid off her house, but still not enough yet. she drag him to shopping and made my husband paid . More than $200. and he did. His sister use him, but he does not care, he crazy for her and I am NO BODY to him. it is too obvious not to see that her and the rest of family is his priority. My husband told me that he hates me, and threaten to divorce me all the time. His sister should be out of the picture. I never understand, why he loves her too much? Very much appreciate from the bottom of my heart for the prayer, God bless you and bless every one in your family. Please do NOT post my e-mail to public. Thank you .
