This post is a list of prayers for your marriage. I have included six prayer topics and verses that you can use to pray over your marriage.
Praying For Your Marriage
These marriage prayers are wonderful no matter what season of marriage you are in.
I do my best to make it a habit to pray often for my marriage. I know that it is something I should do daily and that is my goal. While I may not always reach that goal I absolutely try my best. I want our marriage to stand the test of time. When I said “till death do us part” I really did mean it.
You can pray these prayers for your marriage yourself or you and your spouse can pray them together. Either way, they will be a great blessing for both your marriage and your relationship with Christ.

3. Pray to keep God at the center
Pray that God will remain forever at the center of your marriage. Ask that the Lord be the strong foundation on which your marriage is built. You can also pray that you and your spouse will always turn to God in hard times. Pray that both of you remember to lean on Christ.
