6 Good Prayers for Couples Before Bed

1. Prayer for Unshakable Love

God of Love, You have joined us together and for that reason, and so many others, we glorify Your holy name. As we are about to go to bed tonight, we pray that our bond will not be separated by any man. We pray that we continue to stand steadfast in our love for one another. Let our love be unshakable and let our love for You be the foundation of our relationship. We thank You for each other, and we know that we are blessed to have each other. We pray for a divine covering over both of us. As we grow in You, dear God, help our relationship with one another will grow as well. Amen.

2. Prayer for Unity in Life’s Challenges

Heavenly Father, we thank You for this relationship and for each other. As we say this prayer before bedtime, we ask that You, dear Father, continue to be our strength and very present help in times of trouble. Father, we recognize that we need Your strength every single day, both inside and outside of the home. Help us to work together to support each other in times of challenges. Ease our fears and concerns as we go through life, though the earth gives way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea. Father, we declare that the You are with us, and that the God of Jacob is our fortress. Amen.

3. Prayer of Gratitude for My Wife

God of Creation, in the beginning, You said that it is not good for man to be alone, so You made a helper fit for him – Eve. I thank You for my wife. She is a blessing, and our union is a blessing. Lord, we thank You for this day that we have had on Your earth, and as we are about to retire for bed, we thank You because our help is found not only in You, but also in each other. We know and thank You for the help and guidance we find in each other. We pray that we continue to support one another each and every day of our lives. Amen.

4. Prayer of Thanks for Husband

Holy God, Your Word says that wives should love their husbands as Christ loved the church. I praise You and thank Your holy name for my husband. Thank You for this divine blessing. Father, help me to continue to mature as a Christian and ever more deeply understand how You loved Your church. Show me more and more how to love my husband so that our union may be filled with joy in one another. Holy God, continue to be in our relationship and in our hearts all the days of our lives. Amen.

5. Prayer to Cherish Days Together

Dear God, You Word tells me to enjoy life with the wife whom I love. We know that the days of our lives are fleeting. So, during this bedtime prayer, we pray that You help my wife and I cherish our lives together, because this is our reward in life and in our work in which we have labored under the sun. We pray that we do not take each other for granted. Keep ever-present in our minds how truly blessed we are to have found treasures in one another. Bless us tonight, Amen

6. Prayer to Prioritize Spouse

Holy God, Your word says that when a man is newly married, he should not go out with the army or be liable for any other public duty. He should be free at home one year to be happy and spend time with his wife. Lord, I thank You for this marriage. I thank You that we can find joy in being with each other. I pray that we always put each other before our careers, wealth or any other thing. Help us keep our eyes fixed on You as the center of our relationship, and to value each other second only to You. Amen.
