5 Important Prayers For When Going Through Divorce

In Matthew 5:32, Jesus explains to us the implications of going through a divorce. Immorality is the only leeway he gives for the necessity of divorce. Some people still choose to be together even if their partner has been sexually immoral.

For those who have to go through the unenviable traumatic experience of divorce, know that God wants you to be fine. When a marriage fails there is disappointment, sadness, regret, time wasted, and resentment. Christ encourages us to forgive each other of our shortcomings just as the father in heaven forgives us for ours.

During a divorce, it is important to stay with God in prayer. Thoughts of malice and revenge will plague your mind if you do not fill it with the peaceful thoughts of Christ through the Holy Spirit.

When you focus too much on what you may be losing you may never forgive your former partner and you might take it out on your innocent children. Keep a list of prayers for when going through divorce to keep you grounded in God’s wisdom.

The devil puts asunder. The love you once shared eventually turned sour and became toxic and hate. More than 50% of all marriages end in separation but know that you don’t have to go through it alone. Divorce is a terrible thing and is not of God.

God wants to see us happy and in love just like he loves us. When divorce comes, you need to strengthen yourself in the Lord. Let go of all the pain and hate in your heart and be the best individual you can be. Do not allow your divorce to destroy you. Be strong and persevere in wisdom.

Do not hate your ex-partner but let the word of God be your counsel. Seek the Holy Spirit at all times and let it guide you in everything you do. Pray always for strength and courage to face yourself and society. Don’t feel judged by anyone, hold your head up high and move on with your life.
