5 Prayers For A Cheating Spouse

Here are five prayers for a spouse that is cheating.

Prayer for Conviction

Righteous God in heaven, I am praying that You would send my cheating spouse a conviction of their sin and that this would move them 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 their 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 them 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.

Prayer for Confession

Father God, right now, I know that my spouse has been cheating on me and I am asking You to help me deal with this heartbreak. I need Your comfort and strength to endure and not just give up on them. Please help drive my spouse to their need to confess their sin and that they would see the grievous sin that adultery is. Only You can grant them brokenness before You and I pray You would move their heart to confess their sin to You and come to me to confess it to me so that we can begin healing this relationship and glorify You oh God in our marriage and in the precious name of the Lord Jesus Christ I pray, amen.

Prayer for Repentance

Father God, You alone can move the human heart to confession of sin, to a conviction of sin, and then bring them to repentance. I know that only You can grant them repentance (2nd Tim 2:25) and so that is what I am praying for because my spouse is committing adultery and they are in great danger of Your holy, righteous indignation. I know that unless they repent, they are going to face such a horrible eternity that it can’t even be described (Rev 21:8) and that is something that hurts to even think about, so please Father, grant them repentance so that they might be forgiven and end this adulterous affair so that we can restore our marriage and seek to please You and glorify You in our marriage and in the name of Jesus Christ I pray, amen.

Prayer for Reconciliation

Father God, You are the God of Restoration, redeeming us from the pit which eternally lies below for everyone who rejects You (Rev 20:12-15), but right now, I feel rejected as my spouse is cheating and it feels like a knife to my heart. Please help me oh Father in this great time of heartache and to help me to be able to continue in this marriage in the hopes that we can both be reconciled to one another. I know that my spouse is not really happy inside and that the passing pleasures of sin are fleeting but they cannot suppress their conscience for very long Father, so I pray, please move my spouse to confess their sin, to be convicted of their sin, and to repent of their sin with the passionate desire that we can be reconciled to one another and can give You all the glory for saving our marriage and in the Great Name of Jesus Christ I pray, amen.

Prayer for Forgiveness

Father, I have sinned, for all have sinned (Rom 3:23), and so please forgive me of my sins as I know You will if I confess them to You (1st John 1:9). I know I might have caused my spouse to lose interest in me or perhaps I drove them away from me by the way that I treated them and didn’t love them unconditionally, and so now, I pray God, that You would bring my spouse back to me and that the adultery that is now happening will stop and that both of them would repent of this and that my spouse would be reconciled to me. God, I will need Your power to help me forgive my spouse and to move forward in our relationship and to glorify You in our marriage, so bring my spouse conviction from this sin so that they would repent of it and we can be joined together in our fellowship and in our relationship with one another and that You could be praised for Your divine intervention and in the strong name of Jesus Christ I pray, amen.

Conclusion

I pray right now for every husband and wife that is struggling with adultery and that God would bring healing for their (or your) marriage. There will be the need for forgiveness of course but if we understand just how much we’ve been forgiven, it should make it much easier for us to forgive our spouse for committing adultery. If they continue in adultery, they may not actually be saved (1st John 3:6-10) and so pray that they are saved and only then will they have the power of God’s Spirit to overcome sin because His Spirit will bring them to conviction of their sin, confession of their sin, repentance of their sin, and forgiveness of their sins. We make a poor imitation of the Holy Spirit. Trust God, obey God, and rest in that.

    It is not so typical of me to refer professionals online but I feel like I owe a lot to donrobert who helped me track my cheating husband when he was having an affair, I got to find out that he has been lying to me for the past 5 months and
    seeing two other women. I was able to get direct access to his text messages, phone conversations and all social networks on his phone: what was most amazing was that his recently deleted messages were retrieved by donrobert. If you are getting less than you deserve in your relationship and want to be sure

    I’ve been ripped off, thankfully my friend gave me a reliable contact, he works with discretion and delivers, he does all sort of hacks. I would prefer to let his service speak for itself, you can contact him Cybernnectic at gmail dot com.

    If you have concerns over your partner’s fidelity, improving your credit score, grade change or doubt your employee’s sincerity I am certain deephacking17 can help you get direct access into their phones and computers easily without their knowledge and within a specified time frame.
    This team of certified hackers helped me when I desperately needed to get evidence of my cheating husband’s extra-marital affairs. I was tired of being lied to and wanted a divorce, all thanks to them for their reliable services else I would never have been able to confront him with proof of his escapades

    If you need help don’t hesitate to reach them through their email (deephacking17-at-gmail-com)

    How i win my husband back My name is Lucy Michael from Texas, I never believed in love spells or magic until i met this spell caster once when i went to Africa in February this year on a business summit. I meant a man who’s name is DR. Native Dome he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one’s gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .pregnancy spell.I’m now happy & a living testimony because the man i had wanted to marry left me 3 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down because our relationship has been on for 4years. I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, DR. Native Dome i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided, skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in a week time when i returned back to Texas, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn’t believe it because the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is : dometemple@yahoo.com .

    I spend about 1500 to hire the service of a private investigator to track my wife since I found another man’s clothing in our home, because my husband was quite good at pretending all is good, I needed a really good prove of his infidelity but the PI could not come through, I read about , (cyberwebkey484(at)gmail(dot)com) online too and I gave him a try, In a nutshell, , (cyberwebkey484(at)gmail(dot)com) did a good job of hacking my wife’s phone, without having to make physical contact with the phone, cyberwebkey484 extracted all I needed to prove his infidelity, I got his Emails, recent and old whatsapp messages, his facebook was the most revealing just to mention a few, I’m certain , (cyberwebkey484(at)gmail(dot)com) is the best hacker to perform any hack task without stress or risk.
