The image is for any couple.

The prayer in the text is for a a couple in crisis who have children.

This prayer asks God to guide these two people to find peace of mind.
It asks for the children’s well-being to be protected from disagreements that arise.

This would be suitable as a prayer for a divorcing couple with children.

If the couple you are praying for have no children, just leave out the sections which don't apply.

If you are one of the members of the couple in trouble, well done for sustaining your spirituality at this difficult time.
You can adapt the prayer to include yourself.
I send you love.

It is natural to feel shocked and upset if a friend or family member is going through difficult times in a relationship or through a separation or divorce.

Their difficulties or separation may also have an impact on your own life.
You may be very fond of the member of the couple who is not your family or who was not initially your friend.
Family occasions may no longer include everyone.
You may have less chance to see the children.
Or you may feel called on to help out by looking after the children more often than before....

Worry is natural but it is not the most helpful state of mind.

A prayer for the couple in trouble helps them. But it also helps you to process your own feelings and allow God to help you.
When you access your own spiritual connection you are better able to hold a place that the couple can access the same connection for themselves.

Prayer for a couple in trouble who have children

Dear God,

I raise to you in faith ______ and ______ (insert the names of the couple).

Speak to their hearts.

At this time when they find it easy to see faults in each other, remind them of the qualities they once saw. Remind them of the love they have for each other.

Give them the strength to set aside their own emotions and differences when necessary to attend to the needs of the children.

Give them the courage to find quiet time alone to process their feelings.

Give them the discipline to learn skills to communicate as well as possible with each other.

Give them the courage to ask for help from others if this is what they need – practical help with looking after the children, and also help with receiving love for themselves and with resolving their issues.

Because they have children there is no option of complete separation.
I ask that whatever the outcome for their own relationship,  ______ and ______ (insert the names of the couple) find it surprisingly easy to reconcile the differences in the interests of their children.

God, if it is your will, guide them to repair their relationship.

I place these two people in your hands.

Let them reach out for new help.

Let them remember to call out to you, or maybe even pray together.

Dear God I see the children encircled in your love and your protection.

Protect the children (child) from any thought that their parents’ problems are their fault.

Guide the children to know that they are made in your image, that they are part of your love, and that nothing can change this.

If needed, give the children of this couple, people in their life other than their own parents who can step in and let them know they are loved.

God, help me to be a friend to this family at this time, either in prayer or in practical help.

Thank you.
