8 Prayers For Marriage Restoration

But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.

Jeremiah 17:7, 8

A new marriage is like a newly planted tree. Whether or not the tree gains enough strength to withstand different adverse environmental and weather conditions depends on how we care for and nurture the tree.

Some marriages do not survive a year. Others survive for a while but are completely destroyed when there is the slightest form of adversity. Others grow in strength and stature as time goes on. They are strong enough to resist any pressures, earthquakes, rainstorms, scorching heat, bad influences, pests, and fire.

Adverse conditions in a marriage may include financial trouble, job loss, sickness, unfaithfulness, lack of respect, betrayal, and lack of trust. All these issues can cause a weak marriage to collapse. What makes a marriage weak can be linked to the same thing that makes a planted tree weak.

The text compares those who trust and have confidence in the Lord to trees planted by the water. These trees grow stronger and stronger no matter what weather conditions it is subjected to.

When God is at the center of a marriage, it can only go one way. It is always strong and its leaves do not wilt or dry up. There is always joy and happiness in those marriages because the core values that guide and govern that marriage are of God and spirit and not of the flesh.

If God is in control of your marriage, the faith in Him causes the couples to withstand any negative interventions that threaten to destroy their relationship. Problems in marriages are inevitable. However, how you deal with said problem determines whether the marriage will survive or not.

After a rainstorm people normally look at the weak parts of their buildings and strengthen them to be able to protect them against the next storm. Similarly, a strong marriage takes lessons from problems they face so they don’t repeat their mistakes.

A tree planted by water keeps digging its roots in the water source so it can keep increasing in strength to resist any negative influence. We must let God into our marriages and use his word as our light; this is the only way our marriages will last.

Make sure your marriage is grounded in the Lord. Let him be your source of nourishment and your marriage can withstand any problem. He knows our hearts and he does not want to see us in pain. He loves us very much and wants to see us happy.

Whenever you are going through a shaky patch, reach out to him for answers and he will deliver you. Do not wash your dirty linens in public because that only sabotages and undermines your marriage. Seek the Lord’s help and he will be your solution.

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

Psalm 37:3
