Hedge Prayer for Return of a Wayward Spouse

[The Prayer of Hosea is one of the most powerful prayers in the arsenal of spiritual warfare — the Hedge Prayer. Hosea had a wife who was committing adultery and running around on him. Hosea was convinced that he not divorce her but to pray for her return. This prayer is particularly useful in praying for a wayward spouse, child, or friend who has gone astray from the Faith and from God, has left to lead an improper life, and/or is estranged from the proper relationship they should have with you.

It should be noted, as it is with all prayer, the Hedge Prayer is not a magic bullet. There are no guarantees that the person prayed for will return. We must always remember that God has given his children the freedom to choose — even the freedom to choose wrongly. No one, not even God, may force a person against their will to do anything. God, however, is a mighty persuader and although He will not intrude upon one’s freedom to choose the course of one’s own actions, He may provide the person with great incentive, motivation, and circumstances to help them decide to come back to the place they should be.


For she said, ‘I will go after my lovers, who give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, my oil and my drink.’ Therefore I will hedge up her way with thorns; and I will build a wall against her, so that she cannot find her paths. She shall pursue her lovers, but not overtake them; and she shall seek them, but shall not find them. Then she shall say, ‘I will go and return to my first husband, for it was better with me then than now.’ Hosea 2:5b-7]

Trusting in the promise that whatever we ask the Father in Jesus’ name He will do, I now approach You Father with confidence in Our Lord’s words and in Your infinite power and love for me and _________ and with the intercession of the Jesus Christ and Holy in the power of His blessed Name, ask you Father to send forth Your Spirit to convict ________ and to allow him/her to see any and all wrongs that he has done and how they offend Your infinite goodness.

Father I ask in sorrow, knowing that You do not intrude upon free will, but that You can give Divine Influence like you did with Hosea’s wife, that You send a hedge of thorns and wall around _________ so that he/she cannot find the paths that lead him/her away from me and our marriage, and though he/she shall pursue his/her [i.e. lovers, lifestyle, sinful ways, etc.] , he/she will not [i.e. overtake them, practice improper lifestyles, engage in sin, etc.] ; though he/she shall seek [i.e. lovers, improper lifestyle, sin, etc.] , he/she shall not find [i.e. them, desired lifestyle, the sin that draws him, etc.] ; that no matter what path or what [i.e. lover, lifestyle, sin, etc.] he/she seeks he/she shall not find satisfaction or happiness until he/she returns to me, his/her wife/husband where he/she may then be taught by Your Holy Spirit the true meaning of marriage and sexuality and to be a good and loving husband/wife, and to know the ways of righteousness and true manhood/womanhood.

Father, I am powerless against these spiritual forces and recognize my utter dependence on You and Your power. Look with mercy upon me and upon my husband/wife. Do not look upon our sins, O Lord; rather, look at the sufferings of your Beloved Son and see the Victim who’s bitter passion and death has reconciled us to You. By the victory of the cross, protect us from all evil and rebuke any evil spirits who are attacking or influencing us in any way. Send them back to Hell and place a wall of protection around this marriage. Send your Holy Angels to watch over us and protect us.

Father, all of these things I ask in the most holy name of Jesus Christ, Your Son. Thank you, Father, for hearing my prayer. I love You, I worship You, I thank You and I trust in You. Amen.

Prayer for marriage

God I ask in Jesus’ name, that You would save, heal, and bless our marriage. Fix what is wrong and make it right. Teach us both how to pray and intercede for each other and our children. Let love, joy, peace, and faithfulness to You God and each other reign within the walls of our hearts and home. Give both of us patience and a great respect for each other. Help us; teach us how to be gentle, compassionate, courteous, and tenderhearted toward each other. Delighting in one another; being of the same mind and united in Love.

God I would rather be reconciled than right. Don’t let the spirit of pride poison our relationship with each other or our marriage. Don’t let us play head games with each other. If this is happening let it stop. Don’t let anything, not one thing divide us. We Are One. Teach us both how to walk in love and forgiveness and ask for forgiveness when we are wrong. Let us purpose in our hearts and commit to each other to live and conduct ourselves honorably and becomingly to You Lord Jesus and our marriage. Let us esteem our marriage as precious, worthy and of great price.

God I place my marriage in Your hands. Lord Jesus do whatever You have to do to save, heal, and bless our marriage. Knit us and our marriage together, rooted and grounded in Your Love Lord Jesus, so that nothing can destroy it. God all that I have asked of You to do for our marriage in this prayer, please do the same for everyone in my family and all my friends that are married. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You Lord Jesus. Amen.

Prayer for spiritual breakthrough

I will exalt You, my God the King; I will praise Your name for ever and ever. Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; His greatness no one can fathom. The LORD is near to me and I call on You, in truth. Hear my prayer, O Lord; let my cry for help come to You. Do not hide Your face from me when I am in distress. Turn Your ear to me; when I call, answer me quickly. You will fulfill the desires of those who fear You; You hear my cry and save me and _____ (spouse and loved ones’ names).

I have faith in You Lord and You said, “If anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him.” Lord, You know my mountain of circumstances in my marriage. So I am believing You, that whatever I ask for in prayer, I believe I have received it, and it will be mine. And when I stand praying, if I hold anything against anyone, I forgive them, so that my Father in heaven may forgive me of my sins. Lord, with man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.

Lord, I thank You that I am strong in the Lord, and in His mighty power I put the full Armor of God on myself and on _____ so that we can take a stand against the devil’s schemes. Lord, thank You that You will block _____’s wrong pathways with thornbushes; You will wall them in so that they cannot find their way. They will chase after their lovers but not catch them; they will look for them but not find them. Then they will say, ‘I will go back to _____ as at first, for then I was better off than now.’ My prayer is that You will open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to You, so that they may receive forgiveness of their sins and be sanctified by faith in You. Thank You Lord, that You will break the bars of their yoke and rescue them from the hands of those who enslaved them. You will search for Your lost and bring back the strays. You will bind up the injured and strengthen the weak. My prayer is that _____ will repent and be baptized, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of their sins. And _____ will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for _____ and your children and all who are far off — for all whom the LORD our God will call.

You are the Good Shepherd, You know Your sheep and Your sheep know You. I praise You, Father that You will give _____ an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them. Thank You that will remove _____’s heart of stone and give _____ a heart of flesh. Thank You Lord that _____ will not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of their mind. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give both of us the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that we both may know Him better. I pray also that the eyes of our hearts will be enlightened in order that we may know the hope to which He has called us. You are our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility.

I pray that You may strengthen us with power through His Spirit in our inner being, so that Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith. Lord, I know You are able to do immeasurably more than all I ask or imagine, according to Your power that is at work within me. Lord, remove our sinful natures, and fill us with the fruit of the Spirit which is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

Lord, I pray that You will turn all the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers. Lord, I hate divorce as You hate divorce. Lord, _____ and I are one flesh, and are no longer two, but one. Therefore what You have joined together, let man not separate. Thank You Lord that it is Your will that we should be sanctified; that we should avoid sexual immorality; that we should learn to control our own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the heathen, who do not know God. For You did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life.

Lord, breathe on our dead marriage and it will come to life. Then the nations around us that remain will know that the Lord has rebuilt what was destroyed and has replanted what was desolate. The Lord has spoken, and You will do it. Lord, thank You that You will come to me and fulfill Your gracious promise to bring us back to Your place. For You know the plans You have for us. Plans to prosper us and not to harm us, plans to give us hope and a future. Then I will call upon You and come and pray to You, and I will listen to You. I will seek You and find You when I seek You with all my heart. You will find _____ and will bring them back from captivity. For nothing is impossible with God. I am blessed as I believe what the Lord has said to me will be accomplished! Praise the Lord. Amen.

Prayer for Return of a Wayward Spouse

Their mother has been unfaithful
and has conceived them in disgrace.
She said, ‘I will go after my lovers,
who give me my food and my water,
my wool and my linen, my oil and my drink.’
Therefore I will block her path with thornbushes;
I will wall her in so that she cannot find her way.
She will chase after her lovers but not catch them;
she will look for them but not find them.
Then she will say,
‘I will go back to my husband as at first,
for then I was better off than now.’
Hosea 2:5-7

“Trusting in the promise that whatever I ask for in the name of your Son, Jesus, You Father will do it, with confidence in Our Lord’s words and in Your infinite power and love for me and for my [husband/wife]. I ask you, Father, to send Your Spirit to convict [person’s name] and to allow [him/her] to see all wrongs that [he/she] has done and how these actions offend Your infinite goodness.”

“Father, I ask in sorrow, knowing that You do not intrude upon free will, but that You can give Divine influence like you did with Hosea’s wife, that You send a hedge of thorns around [person’s name] so that [he/she] cannot find the paths that lead [him/her] away from me and our marriage. Even though [he/she] may pursue [his/her] sinful ways, [he/she] will not succeed in sinning against You. [He/She] shall not find satisfaction or happiness until [he/she] returns to me as my [wife/husband], where [he/she] may then be taught by Your Holy Spirit, the true meaning of marriage, sexuality and how to be good and loving in our marital relationship.”

“Father, I am powerless against these spiritual forces and recognize my utter dependence on You and Your power. Look with mercy upon me and upon my [wife/husband.] Do not look upon our sins, O Lord, rather look at the sufferings of your Beloved Son and see the Victim whose bitter passion and death has reconciled us to You. By the victory of the cross, protect us from all evil and rebuke any evil spirits who are attacking or influencing us in any way. Send them back to Hell and place a wall of protection around our marriage. Send your Holy Angels to watch over us and protect us.”

“Father, I ask these things through the most Holy Name of Jesus Christ, Your Son. Thank you, Father, for hearing my prayer. I love You, I worship You, I thank You and I trust in Your infinite mercy and forgiveness. Amen.”
