In the Bible, Ecclesiastes 4:12  states that  ‘a cord of three strands is not easily broken’. This refers to the fact that it is not just you and your partner in the marriage but also God as well. He is there with you, watching over you. So while there are things that both the wife and the husband need to do to save a marriage that is on the rocks, you should include God in the equation too!



The Couple

It can be easy to blame one party for the dissolution of a relationship. You can spend plenty of time looking at articles on the internet about what needs doing if your relationship is in trouble. But identifying the problems only get you so far in being able to repair a broken marriage.

What is more important is to discover whether both of you have the will and the faith to get through this difficult time and emerge victoriously. It will take work, and patience. It will also take trust and forgiveness as well as uncovering the love that you had in the beginning. This won’t be easy, especially when things have happened that make you wary of your other half.

That is why you don’t have to do it in your own power, but with the help of God.  

Bible Inspiration

There is plenty of help that you can find in the Bible when you are going through a hard time, and marriage problems are no exception.

It is often said that the Bible marginalizes the role of women and puts men in the power position. However, you can find many passages promoting the value of women in marriage such as Proverbs 31:10.

Of course, the Bible does advise against divorce, but it is not unbiblical if the situation demands it, as is stated in Matthew 19.8.

If you have got past the point if no return, and divorce seem to be imminent, it is important to stay on civil terms for the sake of your family. You should also consult with professionals like Family Lawyers, to make the divorce run as smooth as possible. Which can save the whole family a lot of stress and hassle.

Power Of Prayer

Prayer is one of the most powerful things that we can do to help a failing marriage whether it is our own or someone else’s. Prayer is a conversation between you and God. Don’t forget that he is always listening whether you get the response that you want or not. He always knows what is best in that situation. He will work things out for your good!

In prayer, we often ask God for things that we want to be changed or for qualities that we want strengthening. When a relationship is breaking down it is not uncommon to ask him to change the other person for us, to make things better too.

While he can do this, it is also worth bearing in mind that prayer doesn’t tend to change others, as much as it changes the one who is praying. So through this activity, God is helping you to work on your attitude and soften your heart. Which can help you move forward in a difficult relationship.
