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. The couple are probably worried and shocked by the
difficulties they are experiencing.
A prayer for the couple in trouble not only helps them. It helps
you to process your own feelings and allow God to help you.
When you access your own spirituality you are better able to hold a place that the couple can touch the same peace for themselves.
With problems in relationships there may be times when it is
difficult to imagine any solution. When you say a prayer for the couple in trouble and hand over the relationship to God you
are opening to solutions beyond those that you can see at the current time.
Prayer for a couple in trouble who have children
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 and to communicate 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
place these two people in your hands.
Let them reach out for new help.
And learn to pray, maybe even pray together.
Dear God I see the children encircled in your love and your
Protect the children from thinking 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 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.
