31 Scriptures To Pray Over Your Marriage

31 Scriptures To Pray For Your Marriage is a compilation of Scriptures I prayed over my own marriage for the past few years.

In my opinion, even the best marriages also have their difficulties.

There were times when my marriage to Jacques couldn’t be happier and better and then there were times when things got terrible and worst to the point we both felt we wanted to throw in the towel.

By the grace and mercies of God, we made it this far by still being married for 29 years and refusing to give up on one another.

Praying these Scriptures over our marriage allowed me to notice my shortcomings and ask God to help me change.

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”

1 Peter 5:8

If you are a child of God you can be certain your marriage, your home, and your family will be under attack and satan will do his best to destroy these areas of your life.

There is no other way than to cover your marriage in prayer by praying Scripture over it, and these 31 Scriptures To Pray Over Your Marriage will allow God to bring lasting changes to any marriage.

If you are in an abusive relationship, either emotional or physical please seek professional advice, it makes no sense to try and save your marriage by putting your own life and well-being at risk.

May the Holy Spirit minister to you while reading through these Scriptures.
