One of the most important relationships you will ever have is the one you have with your spouse. Here are some prayers for spiritual warfare in a marriage.
A Prayer to Break Down Barriers
Help me fight for my marriage, Lord of Heaven’s Armies. Tear down these walls of anger and resentment that are keeping us from getting along. Help us remember that You have joined us together into one body, so we do not feel like our individual rights are being trampled on and we always have to fight for them. Let us instead try to help each other and put the other person’s needs ahead of our own. Bring back the closeness that God wants for us. Amen.
How to Pray to Win a Power Struggle Over Money
Help me do my part to win this battle and save my marriage, all-knowing Judge. We have different spending habits and goals when it comes to money, which has led to a power struggle that is making it hard for us to work together. Help us figure out how to get our finances in order. Help each of us avoid making money mistakes or being too selfish, which would make the other person upset. Righteous God, look into our hearts and minds and show us the parts that are making the problem worse. Amen.
Prayer to Stop Bad Conversations
Chain-Breaker, I will admit that I have made my spouse angry and hurt by yelling at them, ignoring them or making sarcastic comments, and not listening to them. I am sorry, and I want to stop doing these bad things. Holy Spirit, please teach me how to communicate with care, to keep my voice low and pleasant, to respect and listen to my partner, and to remember that we are on the same team. Amen.

Lord of Lords, I pray that You will be the Lord of our home and that we will not do anything to upset Your Holy Spirit. I have to admit that I have been fighting with my spouse all the time, and I know that this goes against what You say about being peacemakers. Help me figure out how to solve the things that are bothering us in a calm and creative way, and help us love each other as much as You have loved us. Amen.
Prayer for Being Honest
God of Truth, help me in this struggle to make sure we talk to each other in a sincere and honest way. We have not been honest with each other about how we feel, and we have not been honest about money or other things, which has hurt our trust. May Your Holy Spirit help me communicate in an honest way, and may I say what is on my mind in a loving way. Help me build trust and honesty with my partner by letting me listen to them without judging them. Amen.
Prayer to break down the walls of envy and fear
God, my Rock, please break down these walls of jealousy and insecurity that are coming between us. Holy Spirit, please work in both of our lives so we can get over feelings of low self-esteem, inadequacy, codependency, and possessiveness. Help us not say or do things that would make the other person feel bad about themselves. Help us understand each other’s needs and work to meet them in a way that is healthy and reassuring. Amen.
Prayer to Get Power over the Opponent
The devil comes to steal, kill, and destroy, and that is what he is trying to do to my marriage, Lord my Strength. Help me use my spiritual authority against the work of the enemy, and help us both remember that we should not be fighting each other but standing together against his plans. Help us stay alert when he tries to hurt us, and help us remember the victories we have had together. Amen.
Prayer for Strength to Fight Again
God of Power, please give me more strength for this fight to keep my marriage together. Help me not get tired of doing good things and not give up, because I know that we will get a rich and happy marriage out of it. Help me remember to always pray for peace in my marriage and to thank You and my partner for all the ways I am blessed. Amen.
