Note: This prayer is derived from Scripture, but you can take it’s content and use a modern dialogue.
And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.
Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.
Then came to him the mother of Zebedees children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him.
But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,
But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
PRAY audibly, bring your care to our heavenly Father
My Father, my spouse has been unfaithful to me and to you. S/he has gone astray, and his/her heart has declined to a strange woman/men’s ways. She/he has seduced my spouse and s/he defiled him/herself with her/him
Tell it as it is written You see it as lewdness and an abomination.
This strange woman/men’s house is the way to hell.
ASK GOD’S INTERVENTION FOR:
Deliver him/her from her/his deceptive, vain, flattering words.
Father, loose the cords of his sins. Destroy the yoke with Your anointing.
I pray You will not give him/her up to a reprobate mind. Save him/her from the spirit of whoredoms which has caused him to err. Enlighten my spouse’s understanding. Let his/her heart see.
And may s/he put away this evil and not destroy his/her soul.
Forbid it Lord that this sin bring about severe consequences. I know that You discipline Your children because You love us. Have compassion on us, Abba Father. May Your kindness and goodness lead my husband to repent.
The other woman/men
Cause this woman/men to cease from playing the harlot. You said that adultery is evil and it is a great sin. You have taught us that our bodies are Your temple and anyone that defiles this temple, You will destroy. Adulterers shall not inherit the kingdom of God suffering the vengeance of eternal fire in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. Put a godly fear in her, put love for her/his own soul. I pray for a godly repentance.
Your spouse and the other woman/men
But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him, Behold, thou art but a dead man, for the woman which thou hast taken; for she is a man’s wife
2 Samuel 12:7
And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man…
Father put Your fear in each, as You did with King Abimelech, when he found out the woman he had taken was Abraham’s wife. Put the right person(s) in each one’s path to reprove this work of darkness, and may each receive godly counsel. Send to each one a Nathan, the prophet who confronted King David when he had taken another man’s wife
You and your husband/wife
As for me, Lord, You said my husband/wife is sanctified by a godly wife/husband.
I pray s/he will be encouraged by my testimony. May s/he see and appreciate the value of a virtuous woman that fears the Lord. Through Your eyes, may s/he see in me a meek, and quiet spirit which is in Your sight of great price.
May s/he have wise discernment, Lord. Save him/her from the deceitfulness of a well-favored harlot. I pray s/he will return to me and to You and be made clean of this filthiness. I desire that my husband/wife be happy and rejoice with the woman/men he married. Let my love fill him/her with delight and make him/her happy. May s/he be satisfied with his/her own well. You made us to be one flesh. He ought to give honor unto me and be kind and of good will. May You pour Your love in him by Your Holy spirit to love me as Christ loves the church and as loving himself. I pray s/he will be faithful and true to me.
God will give you the grace to forgive
Father, I thank You that adultery is a forgivable sin. Your unfailing love covers the multitude of sins. You will never turn away a broken and contrite spirit and the one that comes to You in repentance asking Your forgiveness. You gave us examples: You forgave Rehab, David, and the woman caught in adultery, just as You forgave the prodigal son. You will also remove the guilt and shame and will never remember it anymore.
Don’t cast stones Father, I know that I also sin, and I don’t want to be guilty of pride, bitterness, hate, and self- righteousness; nor do I want to cast stones and not forgive. I pray you will forgive us of our sins and cleanse us of all unrighteousness with the blood of Your Son, the Lord Jesus. As heirs together of Your kingdom, we will glorify You in our body, and in our spirit, which are Yours.
Know that you have prayed God’s will
I know I have prayed according to Your Word, and I know You have heard me. I know it is Your will to save my husband /wife that s/he not perish, but to bring fruit of repentance. It is Your will to save our marriage. Father if You be for us, who can be against us! Your Word which I have prayed will not return unto You void; it will accomplish Your will on earth and in our lives, as it is in heaven.
I will wait upon You patiently, Lord. I trust in Your mercy. You are faithful to grant my petition. You will do it. Thank You for Your unfailing love that lives in me and I can be kind, not behave inappropriately, not be selfish, and not be ill-tempered. I do not wish evil on anyone but do not rejoice in evil doings. I rejoice in Your truth; and I can endure my cross, for You will not give me more than I can bear. I will endure my cross also for my husband/wife’s sake. Enduring my cross will bring results! I will believe and trust You in everything, and my hope in You does not make me ashamed. Thank You for the love, joy, and peace I have because Your Spirit lives in me.
IN JESUS NAME, AMEN
