Prayer for Married People who are alone
God of Love and Compassion,
we ask Your special blessing on those among us
who have lost a wife or husband in any way.
They all set out with high ambitions.
Many now live in disappointment or deep dispair.
Reach into their hearts and lives
and bring them healing.
We ask You to comfort those
who are alone through death.
We ask You to strengthen those whose spouse
is seriously ill;
To inspire those whose communication has broken down
and give them the courage to begin again.
We pray for those whose marriages have irrevocably broken down.
Help them to find the way back to health of body and spirit.
Give those around them a generous love and a caring understanding
so that they will be supported as they need.
Prompt those moving in the direction of break-up
to see what is happening
and to do everything that is needed to prevent it.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
