A Prayer For Transformation
Sometimes, what a relationship needs is nothing short of a total transformation. This might mean anything from a radical shift of worldview, to a new set of daily habits or a different way of dealing with emotions. But because we are creatures of habit, a total transformation is a difficult prospect.
It is possible, though, and God can help you and your partner to make the changes you need in order to heal your relationship. Here’s how to ask for help.
“Lord, please help my partner and I to bear the Fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Let us be transformed by these qualities.
God, please give us the strength to make these qualities permanent habits. Let them be on our minds at all times, influencing all that we do and bringing healing to our relationship.
Lord, I realize that I must take ownership of my life and make changes necessary for a good relationship to happen. Please help me to change in the ways in which I must, and, just as importantly, to not change in the ways that I shouldn’t.
I love you, God. Amen.”
