Prayer for an abusive marriage.
At each fork in the road,
you can choose to draw closer to God
or pull away from God.
We urge you to always choose
to draw closer to God.
Each marriage is different.
Each circumstance is different.
We at Inspirational-Prayers are not here to give you advice about your specific marriage. We do hope that this prayer page will help you feel less alone and closer to God.
We also want to let you know that we are praying that you will find help from wise counsel and clergy.
The following prayer is written for a woman. We extend sympathy for the men who are here also. We warmly ask that you take this prayer and adapt it to your emotions and situation.
I’m in deep trouble. My world is confused and chaotic. I feel scared. How much abuse is too much? When he said he was sorry, is he? Will he change?
My heart screams out for help. Why doesn’t anybody hear?
Why is my husband so cold? It is as though the heart I used to know has left and the shell remains. He hurts me so much. I’ve tried so hard to make him happy. Nothing makes him happy. Will he hurt me even more next time? Where do I turn? Who can help me?
Lord, no one seems to see the bruises on my heart. No one’s words soothe my pain.
My life is shattered in thousands of pieces. Their jagged edges lay before me, taunting me that I will never be whole.
I won’t give up that you can help me.
I will choose to see you as my healer and my comforter.
I will watch you as you come to me tonight and bend down and begin to pick up every shattered piece and gather them together. When those large, razor-sharp pieces slice through the tips of your fingers, I will remember that this isn’t the first time that you shed your blood for me.
As I see you humbly kneel down before me, carefully picking up each painful memory of my life, I see the heart of God. You ache over my anguish. I am not alone. I know that I will be whole again.

"Show me the path where I should go, O Lord;
point out the right road for me to walk.
Lead me; teach me; for you are the God
who gives me salvation.
I have no hope except in you. "
Psalm 25:4-5 TLB
