O powerful God of all, you created us that we might love. I come to you broken and fearful and ask your grace that our relationship may be healed. Help my partner in this time of discovery and search for joy; help me in this time of fear and pain.
For many years we have created memories, overcome problems and slept beside each other. Now my world seems empty, and I abandoned.
With boldness I ask that you grant what I believe to be your favorite request: that our love might be restored, our anguish healed and our needs met.
May we dedicate our hearts first to You and then to each other. May Christ’s Word show me how to love and may the Holy Spirit guide me in doing so.
I pray this in honesty and truth. Amen.
