Prayer for conviction of a cheating spouse

Righteous God in heaven, I am praying that You would send my cheating spouse a conviction of his/her sin and that this would move him/her to confess it and to repent of it.

I know that Your Spirit can move the heart of even a pagan or unbelieving king (Prov 21:1) and so I ask You to send Your convicting Spirit to cause my spouse to see his/her sin and to be moved to end this adulterous relationship.

It is beyond anything that I can do and all I can do is pray, but for You, nothing is impossible (Col 1:16), nothing is too hard, and nothing beyond Your ability, so please intervene on behalf of my spouse to convict him/her of this sin so that we can be restored to a right relationship with one another and my spouse’s relationship with You can be restored and in the glorious name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Amen.
