Prayer for the Lord to soften my partner’s heart

by Teju (UK)

My relationship started off with the Lord encouraging both of us to stick together through thick and thin. Along the way, I found myself battling a situation which meant my partner and I couldn’t meet as often as we would’ve loved. It started causing resentment between us, but I managed to stand firm on what the Lord had told me.

My partner on the other hand, began to change. He began blaming all our problems on my situation and avoiding me, though he still stayed in the relationship. This affected me and made me point fingers back, but even through it all, I still know that God cannot encourage something and then end it abruptly.

I’ve made mistakes and cannot absolve myself from anything, but my heart has not changed and God isn’t giving me rest over him. Please pray for us, that the Lord will soften his heart towards me, as a heart hardened towards something the Lord has provided is hardened towards the Lord. I care about me, but more for him. He is operating in flesh and not spirit.

He’s allowed his ego to take over. But even so, the Lord has told me not to leave him. I intend to follow through on God’s plan, but I am also human and I don’t want to go against the will of God because my partner is bitter.

Please pray for Femi’s heart to be softened towards the voice of God and me.

The Lord will bless you as you pray for me.

  1. Joining you in prayer

    I am praying for you that God will move in your partner’s heart and he will soften his attitude towards you.
    I am in a similar situation and I am so confused. When we met I fasted and prayed seeking God’s direction. I asked God that if he was wrong for me that he should disappear before I became emotionally attached.
    Yet now 6 months later when we were getting really close a minor misunderstanding and he will not talk to me. I have apologised, I set aside my pride yet he wont change.
    I sense he is hurting but his ego is in the way and I have such a burden on my heart. I cannot move on.
    I am hurt and so confused. Is it possible that someone can just come into my life just to cause pain and confusion?
    Lord please help me. I surrender it all to you as I also pray for all those on this platform in a similar situation.

  3. I have the same issue

    I am catholic and have been praying this novena…. I am still waiting for gods blessing.
    But I am patient and will not give up… My ex fiancé has hardened his hear and is living off his ego…we need your prayers…


    (pray for 9 days or 9 hours straight)

    Divine Jesus, You have said, “Ask and you shall receive; seek and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you.” Behold me kneeling at Your feet, filled with a lively faith and confidence in the promises dictated by Your Sacred Heart to Saint Margaret Mary. I come to ask this favor: (state your specific request or intention here!)

    To whom can I turn if not to You, Whose Heart is the source of all graces and merits? Where should I seek if not in the treasure which contains all the riches of Your kindness and mercy? Where should I knock if not at the door through which God gives Himself to us and through which we go to God? I have recourse to You, Heart of Jesus. In You I find consolation when afflicted, protection when persecuted, strength when burdened with trials, and light in doubt and darkness.

    Dear Jesus, I firmly believe that You can grant me the grace I implore, even though it should require a miracle. You have only to will it and my prayer will be granted. I admit that I am most unworthy of Your favors, but this is not a reason for me to be discouraged. You are the God of mercy, and You will not refuse a contrite heart. Cast upon me a look of mercy, I beg of You, and Your kind Heart will find in my miseries and weakness a reason for granting my prayer.

    Sacred Heart, whatever may be Your decision with regard to my request, I will never stop adoring, loving, praising, and serving You. My Jesus, be pleased to accept this my act of perfect resignation to the decrees of Your adorable Heart, which I sincerely desire may be fulfilled in and by me and all Your creatures forever.

    Grant me the grace for which I humbly implore You through the Immaculate Heart of Your most sorrowful Mother. You entrusted me to her as her child, and her prayers are all-powerful with You. Amen.

    I pray for you all….

    God bless you, may he soften the heart of your partner. I made mistakes and came to understand too late the errors of my words and actions and my boyfriend has turned away from me.

  11. Amazing how HE speaks to us in times of our troubles

    I pray for you to have continued strength to follow the Lord’s will in this matter. I also pray that your partner’s heart to be softened and to heed the Lord’s will for your path together.

    I felt the Lord again speaking to me as I read your request because it is so similar in context to my situation. Your request again emphasized the many ways that the Lord has spoken to me to not give up and abandon my partner and God’s will for us – even though he has abandoned our relationship.

    Have comfort in knowing that God’s ways are not our ways and He will reward for you following the path He has chosen for you.
