Prayer For the restoration of my marriage

by Chris (Latrobe, PA)


I have made many mistakes in my life. I have always come back to you and asked for forgiveness, but I am not sure I have always put forth the effort necessary to avoid future occasions of sin. I have failed You and for that I am eternally sorry and I ask for Your forgiveness.

I also ask for Your forgiveness for my estranged wife. I know she has travelled far away from the Church and I pray that she finds her way back to You.

The Church is not the only place she has strayed far away from. My wife has strayed from me and our wedding vows leaving our family broken and our six year old daughter torn between her mother and father.

We both made our share of mistakes in our marriage. It is never just one person. But my commitment and love for her has never faltered. I love her with all my heart and would work endlessly to restore the sanctity of that love and our marriage.

It has been four years since her infidelity was uncovered. I have tried and prayed everyday for restoration but her heart has hardened and she has never tried to reconcile. I know she never asked me for it, but I forgive her. What is most important is that we find a way back into each other’s hearts and back into Your fold and live a life of love so that our daughter understands the power of what love for You and for family can do.

I pray for forgiveness of my sins. I pray for the forgiveness of my wife’s sins. I pray for the restoration of our marriage and for the happiness of our daughter. Finally I pray for our return to Your family. For in Your love, all things are possible. Amen.
