What Does God Say About Relationship Problems?

God says to use love to help solve problems in relationships. There is no getting around hurting one another now and again. However, when forgiveness is quickly enforced, love can be restored. No good can from dwelling on wrongs and refusing to let them go. When pain is not dealt with, it grows into anger and bitterness. This often leads to couples moving a part, rather than getting closer. Whether you were the one who got hurt because of a relationship problem, or you were the source, let love solve the issue and put out the fire.

He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends. - Proverbs 17:9 KJV


Prayer Points For a Relationship Breakthrough

Prayer should be the number one tool used by couples for a relationship breakthrough because it can provide them with the power from God that they need to move forward in their relationship.

Here are some prayer points to keep in mind. 

Firstly, prayer helps couples to communicate their needs and requests to God more effectively. It encourages them to listen more intently and be present in their prayer time together, helping them build trust and intimacy with each other.

Secondly, prayer draws godly wisdom into their relationship. Couples can acknowledge that God has specific plans for their relationships, ask Him for guidance on how to follow His will, receive godly counsel on how to resolve conflicts, and ultimately experience divine transformation as He moves in their hearts during prayer times together. 

Finally, prayer guides couples in developing strong values that shape the core of their relationship. Couples can pray for God’s will concerning important decisions such as living arrangements or raising children, acknowledging the Lord's sovereignty over all aspects of life.

Additionally, praying together provides an opportunity for encouragement from God and from each other. Couples can pray for each other's spiritual walks and offer support during difficult times such as being offended.

Praying through challenges also ensures that both parties are operating according to godly principles while considering what’s best for each individual person involved. 

As one or both partners face challenges within the relationship or outside factors such as job-related stress or family issues, praying with one another allows couples to request godly strength and discernment while also expressing comfort and love towards one another.

Overall, making prayer a regular part of relationships is a great way to ensure it remains healthy in the future. Setting aside intentional time each day or week dedicated solely to pray helps keep the Lord at the center of the relationship while providing an opportunity for meaningful conversation. 

Make praying daily a priority today so you can experience its transformative power in your own relationship.
