It can be exceptionally hard to fight for your husband’s love and intimacy when the effort isn’t reciprocated. As women, we crave the intimacy and affection of our husbands, and if they are not extending it, we tend to feel hurt and even at times a bit rejected.
I encourage you to fight in prayer for your husband and your marriage, even if you don’t believe he is doing the same for you. While praying for him, remember what the scripture says in 1st Corinthians 13:7 “Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.” Keep your faith in God as you pray for God to change your husband’s heart, always thanking him for his faithfulness.
If you don’t know where to begin, below are some prayers that will help you in praying for your husband’s love to return to you. We have a comments section below, as well, that you can use to ask others for prayer, or even to connect with a sister in Christ who is going through (or has gone through) something similar.
Short Prayer For My Husband To Love Me Again
Lord, I lift my marriage up to you in prayer. You know my heart, and you know the hurts and struggles I am facing.
Lord, I pray that you remove any bitterness or anger directed towards me from my husband’s heart. I pray for you to give my husband grace to forgive my shortcomings, and that you also give me grace to forgive his shortcomings.
I ask, Father that you place a new love in my husband’s heart for me. Your Word says, “Husbands, love your wives as Christ loved the church, and gave himself up for her,” and Lord, I ask that he loves me in the way that Christ loves the church.
I pray you help me to love and respect my husband in the manner that he needs, and in the way you have called me to do so.
Thank you Lord, for your faithfulness. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
Long Prayer For My Husband To Love Me Again
Heavenly Father, I come to you humbly, seeking healing in my marriage. Your Word says that my husband and I are no longer two; but one flesh, and that what God has joined together, let not man separate.
I stand on this, Lord. You are the rock in our marriage even as we face hardships.
Father, I desire my husband; I desire his love and emotional intimacy. My heart yearns for him.
I pray you give him a desire for me, Lord, that you deepen his love for me.
I pray that you reveal to him the longing I have in my heart for him, Lord, and reveal to him the things that are putting a wedge in our marriage.
If I have done harm to him Lord, or hurt him in any way that he has not forgotten and it has become a stumbling block for him, I pray you reveal what is on his heart to me Lord, so I can ask for his forgiveness for causing him pain. I also ask Lord, that you give him grace to forgive me.
I ask that you open opportunities up to us for bonding Lord, so that we can spend quality time with one another.

In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
Prayer For My Husband’s Heart To Soften Towards Me
Father God, I ask that you soften (husband’s name)’s heart towards me.
Lord, teach him to be gentle and compassionate towards me.

I ask that you make him sensitive to the things he may say or do that cause me pain.

We live in an in a secular world, Lord, and more and more the virtues of mankind seem to be diminishing.
I ask that you prepare (husband’s name) for the temptation that will be thrown in front of him daily, Lord.
Help him to turn away from sexual temptation that is so openly advertised, Lord, and to stay pure.
I ask that you help him to always be content, and to avoid becoming greedy.
I pray that you give him discernment Lord; that he learn to recognize your leading.
I pray you lead him to stay grounded in your Word, and to be consistent in prayer.
Surround him with men who can minister to him, as well Lord; as your Word says, iron sharpens iron.
Thank you Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
Prayer For Peace When It Seems Like My Husband Doesn’t Love Me
Lord, I pray for your peace that surpasses all understanding to cover me, and to guard my heart and mind in Christ.
I know you see my heart Lord and know the pain I feel as I so deeply long for my husband’s love and affection.
Help me to release all attempts to control his feelings towards me, and to allow you to work in his heart.
In this season Lord, I ask that you speak to me through your Word, and help me to lean on you.
I ask that your Holy Spirit surround me and comfort me.
Thank you God for all that you are doing in my life, my husband’s life, and in our marriage.
It’s in your holy name we pray, amen.
It is hard to know what to do when you feel unwanted and unloved by the person who vowed to love you forever, whether it be your husband or your wife. But God can help and prayer is a powerful way to lay a foundation of love in your relationships.
In this world we will always face trials, even with, and dare I say, especially with those that we love the most. This, unfortunately, is the result of a sinful world.
God clearly instructs husbands and wives of their duties multiple times in the Bible. Women are always to submit to their husbands, and men are always to love their wives.
I take comfort knowing that the Lord of all creation knows the heart of a wife. He has called husbands to love their wives as Christ loves the church.
When you pray for your husband to love you, you are in line with the will of God and he will honor that.
I encourage you to comment below and pray with another woman of God who may be facing trials similar to yours. Remember what Jesus says in Matthew 18:19, “Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.”
