Today we shall be looking at intercessory prayers for couples in trouble. Marriage is the beginning, of the family, and is a life-long commitment. It also provides an opportunity to grow in selflessness as you serve your family. Marriage is more than a physical union; it is also a spiritual and emotional union. This union mirrors the one between God and His Church.
This may come as a surprise to some, but yes, even Christian marriages struggle, If you are a Christian and have ever felt disappointed, frustrated, or even angry with your spouse, you are not alone. You may not know what to do or where to turn. The first thing you should know is that it is normal for Christian couples to struggle. Further, those who promise “until death do us part” can have it all fall apart.
Christians are not perfect, nor do they suddenly become relationship experts when they follow Christ. So if you are in a difficult marriage, you don’t have to give up or feel like you are alone. All you need to do is to consider some of the reasons why your marriage might be struggling
🔺Lack of Vulnerability
🔺Lack of Investment
🔺Expecting Your Spouse to Change
Your marriage isn’t doomed because you hurt each other, have difficulty communicating, or have disagreements over important issues. Couples have been experiencing and solving problems on their own, beginning with Adam and Eve and continuing to this day. The more experience and maturity a couple develops in a marriage, the more success gained in managing and solving problems. Through the Holy Spirit, God resides in the marriage of two Christians and gives them the ability to manage relationships healthily and productively successfully.
Nevertheless, there is a piece of good news; God has promised that he will heal our marriages. Maybe you are suffering from broken homes; this might just be the miracle that you need to make your home a comfort zone. I have compiled some powerful intercessory prayers for troubled couples for you today.

As you engage these prayers today, I see the presence of God envelop your marriage and I see every works of darkness negatively affecting your marriage destroyed in Jesus Christ name. I encourage you to pray this prayers with all your heart tonight. Your marriage must work in Jesus Christ name.
