Why Fasting And Praying For Marriage Restoration
Marriage is work, if you don’t work it, it will not work.
In short, if you fold your hands, Satan will destroy your marriage, steal your joy and your spouse away from you.
Perhaps he already has, that may be the reason why you are seeking to fast and to pray to have your marriage restored.
But why should you fast, can’t God hear you and restore your marriage without you having to add fasting to your prayer.
But here’s what your fasting mean to God, you and to the devil.
1. It Shows Your Desperation
If your marriage really matter to you, if the saving of your marriage means anything to you, then show it by skipping you breakfast and dinner just so you can spend the time with God seeking His help in restoring your marriage.
You are not supposed to loose your sleep no matter the condition, but you may loose it if you have to seek God for something that means the world to you.
You can loose your sleep and skip meals just because you have to deal with something that is important in your life.
Your fasting is a testimony of your desperation and urgency for God’s help.
It shows God how much you want it, how committed you are to having His will and cause have the supremacy in your home.
2. To Deal With The Unseen
A lot happens that you don’t see.
When you spouse of 5, 10, 15, 20 years in marriage suddenly wakes up and starts misbehaving, chasing other women and even leave the house for another woman, you think it is ordinary. No, it is not.
An enemy has done it.
He is under a spell.
He face has been covered that he cannot see.
His senses have been suspended or tampered with by wicked forces that he cannot think straight again.
And unless you go the extra mile in fasting and praying for his restoration, that cloud covering his face will not lift.
Something must give way, ‘this kind’ must go before he can be free and then restored back home to his marriage and family. (See Matthew 17:21, KJV)
This is why you need to engage the weapon of fasting and praying so you can break that hold over his life and release him from the evil influence he is under.
Take charge of the situation through fasting and don’t let Satan play your marriage around the way he likes, wherever he likes and whenever.
This is why you must pray and then add fasting to your prayer to generate intense power.
3. For Revelation

How To Fast And Pray For Marriage Restoration
1. Set A Time And A Place For Prayer
Please as you seek to fast and pray for the restoration of your marriage, be sure to do it with all dutifulness.
Set a time to pray and respect the time.
Set a place of prayer too, a corner in your bedroom, a spot in your living room and make sure you respect the time and the place.
Let every prayer you offer be made in that place and also be on-time all the time you are praying.
Angels are most often hanging around a place set apart and consecrated for prayer, and they will come through for you when your keep and respect the place and keep to the time.
2. Be Definite With Your Prayers
Don’t go praying shooting here and there.
No, face the prayer and pray it squarely.
You may have other things that are bordering you, but don’t bring them to the table at this time, let all your energies and prayers be on the matter of restoration of your marriage.
Be focused, definite and stable in your prayer.
3. Get Scriptures To Cover Your Prayers
You cannot pray and prevail with God if your prayers have no scriptural backing.
God doesn’t hear and answer your cry and emotion but real prayers born out sincere legitimate need and backed by His holy written word.
So look for scriptures on restoration and begin to pray them over your marriage.
(See Isaiah 1:26, 57:18, Jeremiah 30:17, Joel 2:25 as scripture reference on restoration)
4. Address The Devil In Your Prayer
Also, you should understand when to pray to God for mercy, help, forgiveness and divine intervention.
And then you should know how to address the devil in boldness of faith under the influence of the anointing of the Spirit.
Know when to tell the devil to take his filthy hands off of your spouse’ mind and heart.
Know when to call the cloud over his life lifted and dissipated.
Know when to command the spell over his life to break and be completely shattered by the power of the Holy Spirit, in Jesus’ name.
Know when to call him back home in the spirit through the power of God.
Those are not prayers that you pray to God, they are command issues by you that Satan is under obligation to respect and obey.
5. Believe It is Done
Then, having prayed and issue command, believe that you prayers have been answered.
If you live the place of prayer not sure whether God has heard you or that something has happened in the realm of the spirit seeing you have prayed, then all the time you spent in prayer was wasted.
You must pray yourself to the point where faith rises in your heart and you believe with all assurance and certainty that your prayers have been answered.
Without faith, you can’t please God, you can’t receive answers to prayers.
Stand in faith and confidence that you have what you asked for in prayer. (See Mark 11:23-24)
6. Wait For A Define Change
Having prayed with definite assurance in your heart that God has answered your prayer, you will still need to wait in time for the physical manifestation of the answer.
This can take a few days, weeks, months, and sometimes years, but as sure as the heavens is and God is, the answer will come.
But you must learn to wait.
7. Standing In Thanksgiving
While waiting, you must stay in the place of thanksgiving.
That’s how to keep your faith alive.
Some people pray and have the assurance that they have received but when it looks like they are not seeing immediately the manifestation, they start to complain and question whether God really heard them in the first place.
Through complain, you repudiate God’s word and destroy your prayers yourself.
What you are to do in your waiting time is to stay and live thankful to God all the time.
That way, you able to keep your faith alive, intact and going.
He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God. And being fully persuaded that, what He had promised, He was able also to perform (Romans 4:20-21, KJV)
