This Prophetic Prayer May Bring the Righteous Reset That Saves Your Marriage

by | Aug 20, 2021 | Greenelines

Sherri Downs has seen marriages come back from the brink. In addition to helping others work through their own marital issues, this author, prophetess, blogger, life coach and podcast host has experienced her own challenges in marriage.

But all of this has taught her one thing, she tells Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network: God cares about families, and He is at work to restore relationships.

“One thing He just began to show us is His heart for the family, especially revealing it so clearly why we’ve been in this pandemic and how strategic the shutdowns have been, and people have been given an opportunity to reset,” she says. Her latest book, Righteous Relationship Reset, explores that topic.

In her teaching and writing on marriage, Downs emphasizes the Holy Spirit’s power. Marriage is not a “one size fits all,” she says. “You have to really follow the leading of Holy Spirit. And one thing I’ve learned is you die for that person over and over again, as God would cause you to walk in obedience to bring that person and that person bring you to the destiny that God has for you.”

But Downs offers something greater than relationship tips or practical advice: the prophetic power of prayer. She asked the Lord to rebuild her own marriage, and she offers that prayer for others as well:

“I want to actually decree that over this audience: that they would invite God in to rebuild,” Downs says. “You may feel that your life is shattered; you may feel that it’s in a million pieces. … You may feel that there is no hope and you’re walking through the darkest of times. I just want to encourage you because you have to do this. And I want to prophetically speak that you would have the strength and the tenacity and the fire of God to invite God in and ask Him to help you to rebuild your life from the ruins that it might be in.

“So I just pray right now, for a guard around your life, that God would give you the necessary tools,” Downs says. “And those people around you who will be your prayer partners, who will be your encouragers, who will be your coaches, who will be those who are cheering you on, telling you, ‘It’s not over,’ tell you that God has a plan and a purpose for what you’re walking through.

“So I just prophesy a new day in Jesus’ name. I prophesy a new day over your husband. I prophesy a new day over you, over your ministries, over your children, and God wants to build a lasting legacy. Become God’s change agent in the earth, and do marriage His way, not the way of culture, not the way of your generational line. … God wants you to stand up and be a change agent for the kingdom of God, winning and living in abundance. In Jesus’ name.”
