Prayer for healing and forgiveness in our marriage

Dear Lord, My husband and I have been married for 21 years, and it has not been a good marriage. I have committed hurtful, harmful acts, and lied about them for many years. In return, he has been emotionally unfaithful over the years with many women. We are in counseling, but need your help desperately. I have finally been honest about everything, and have pleaded for his forgiveness, but he does not believe me or trust me. And I don’t believe or trust him when it comes to the relationships with other women. I love my husband and desperately want our marriage. He says he wants it, too. But things are still too volatile. Please heal our hearts. Show us how to forgive. Help us to find a way to love properly. In Jesus’s name, I pray. Amen.
