devotion from Charlene Cares A Prayer To Change Your Spouse's Heart
- A PRAYER TO CHANGE YOUR SPOUSE'S HEART -
Sometimes when standing for the restoration of your marriage, you run out of words to
pray. You felt my prayers has no power and you feel you did not know how to pray.
When you get to that point, you can speak the Word of God in a prayer by praying
May this prayer be your heart's cry for your spouse. Remember the Word of God is
powerful and will never return void. Here is a prayer that Charlene wrotefor us standers.
Please stand in agreement with me that as you pray, the Holy Spirit will change your
spouse's heart suddenly and quickly.
"So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will
accomplish what I desire, and achieve the purpose for which I sent it." Isaiah 55:11

I will exalt You, my God the King; I will praise Your name for ever and ever. Great is the
LORD and most worthy of praise; His greatness no one can fathom. The LORD is near to
me and I call on You, in truth. Hear my prayer, O Lord; let my cry for help come to
You. Do not hide Your face from me when I am in distress. Turn Your ear to me; when I
call, answer me quickly. You will fulfill the desires of those who fear You; You hear my cry
and save me and my spouse.
Lord, I have faith in God, and You said, "If anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw
yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will
happen, it will be done for him. Lord, You know my mountain of circumstances in my
marriage. So I am believing You, that whatever I ask for in prayer, that I believe that I have
received it, and it will be mine. And when I stand praying, if I hold anything against
anyone, I forgive them, so that my Father in heaven may forgive me of my sins. Lord,
with man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.
Lord, I thank You that I am strong in the Lord, and in His mighty power I put the full armor
of God on myself and my spouse so that I can take a stand against the devil's schemes.
Lord, thank You that You will block my spouse's path with thornbushes; You will wall them
in so that they cannot find their way. They will chase after their lovers but not catch them;
they will look for them but not find them. Then they will say, 'I will go back to my spouse
as at first, for then I was better off than now.' My prayer is that You will open their eyes
and turn them from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to You, so that they
may receive forgiveness of their sins and be sanctified by faith in You. Thank You Lord,
that You will break the bars of their yoke and rescue them from the hands of those who
enslaved them. You will search for Your lost and bring back the strays. You will bind up
the injured and strengthen the weak.
You are the Good Shepherd, You know Your sheep and Your sheep know You. I praise You
that You will give my spouse a undivided heart and put a new spirit in them. Thank You
that You will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh. Thank
You Lord, that my spouse will not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be
transformed by the renewing of their mind. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus
Christ, the glorious Father, may give both of us the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that
we both may know Him better. I pray also that the eyes of our hearts will be enlightened
in order that we may know the hope to which He has called us. You are our peace, who
has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility.
I pray that You may strengthen us with power through His Spirit in our inner being, so that
Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith. Lord, I know You are able to do
immeasurably more than all I ask or imagine, according to Your power that is at work
within me. Lord, remove our sinful natures, and fill us with the fruit of the Spirit which is
love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
Lord, I pray that You will turn the heats of the fathers to their children and the hearts of
the children to their fathers. Lord, I hate divorce as You hate divorce. Lord, my spouse
and I are one flesh, and are no longer two, but one. Therefore what You have joined
together, let man not separate. Thank You Lord, that it is Your will that we should be
sanctified; that we should avoid sexual immorality; that we should learn to control our own
body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the heathen, who do
not know God. For You did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life.
Lord, breathe on my dead marriage and it will come to life. Then the nations around us
that remain will know that the Lord has rebuilt what was destroyed and has replanted what
was desolate. The Lord has spoken, and He will do it. Lord, thank You that You will come
to me and fulfill my gracious promise to bring us back to Your place. For You know the
plans You have for me. Plans to prosper me and not to harm me, plant to give me hope
and a future. Then I will call upon You and come and pray to You, and I will listen to You.
I will seek You and find You when I seek You with all my heart. You will find my spouse
and will bring my spouse back from captivity. For nothing is impossible with God. I am
blessed as I believe what the Lord has said to me will be accomplished! Praise the Lord.
