Powerful Prayer to Get My Ex Back

It’s very natural that you miss your ex’s presence, especially if you still think that they are a sweet person. And yes, you can get this person back through a simple prayer. Everything isn’t all about the physical—many times spiritual support works well too. So, you will find out here in the guide a prayer that will help you get your ex back.

But first, you have to reconcile with yourself and put any form of blame aside. The truth is that your ex may also miss your presence. However, they find it difficult to get in touch because of fear of rejection. That’s normal. Now, while prayer will help, you also have to monitor their activities, especially online since you probably still have connections with them. From here, you’ll find clues that help you determine if it’s worth it in the first place. Sometimes, your prayer may not work because God has seen it’s not worth it for either of you together. We’ll pray together to get an ex back in your life.

Prayer to Get My Ex Back

Alongside each prayer is a Bible verse to back up our prayer point. You can always make references, and maybe even learn new things as you do.

1. Prayer for Healing and Reconciliation

Dear Lord,

It says in Ephesians 4:32, ‘Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.’ I draw my desire from the words to ask for Your healing touch on our hearts. Mend what has been broken in our relationship, and most importantly help us forgive and reconcile.

Help me and my ex to remember the love that once flourished between us. I also pray that you inspire us to nurture that love once again.


This prayer is a way of asking God for the healing of emotional wounds. The truth is that you were hurt in the past, irrespective of whose fault it was. Now, what you need is  restoration of the relationship, so you need to pray for both forgiveness and the revival of love.

2. Prayer for Understanding and Patience

In James 1:19, it says ‘Let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger.’ Let’s pray this prayer:

Heavenly Father,

Grant me the patience to listen and the wisdom to understand my ex-partner’s perspective because I may have been wrong. And help us to communicate without anger or misunderstanding.

May Your grace enable me and my ex to rebuild our relationship. This time, let it be on the foundation of mutual respect.


With this prayer, we are calling for divine intervention to guide the communication you will hold with your ex. You also need patience and God’s grace to be “quick to hear and slow to speak” while understanding yourselves.

3. Prayer for Love to Flourish Again

Now, we will pray a prayer that appeals to a rekindling love. We see this characteristic in 1 Corinthians, where the Bible talks about  patience, kindness, and selflessness in rebuilding the relationship. Let’s pray:

Dear God,

You have loved us, so I call for your help to bring back my love. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 teaches us, ‘Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude…’. I pray that this divine love permeates our hearts and relationship and brings us back together with renewed commitment.


4. Prayer for Personal Growth and Self-Reflection

You do need a prayer about personal development and introspection. But first, understand the need for self-improvement and humility. There can’t be reconciliation without humility in the process of reconciliation.

And no, it doesn’t matter whose fault it was that the breakup happened. Now is time to mend things, so you need humility to be able to reflect on yourself in alignment with Biblical teachings.

Loving Father in Heaven,

I seek to mend my past relationship with my ex. Help us also look inward, as Matthew 7:3-5 encourages us not to criticize others without first examining our own faults. Help me to grow and learn from this experience, understand my own shortcomings, and work on them. May this period of reflection and growth bring me closer than ever to my ex, and also to You.


5. Prayer for Divine Guidance and Wisdom

Dear God,

It is in Proverbs 3:5-6 that one should ‘trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.’ In these words I pray for Your guidance and wisdom. I need them to walk through any difficulty in this relationship.

Show me and my ex the way to each other’s hearts again. Please Father, guide our decisions so we can discover what is the best for both of us.


This is a prayer asking  God for His guidance throughout the reconciliation process. You need His spirit to lead every word you utter while also trusting that divine wisdom to open the way to a restored relationship. In all that you’ll do through this journey, you have to trust in God’s over your own understanding.

6. Prayer for Overcoming Obstacles Together

While working both physically and spiritually to get back an ex partner, you’ll come across some obstacles and uncertainties. Sometimes, you’ll ask yourself if it’s worth it to get back together, especially considering what may have caused the breakup. This is where the prayer of overcoming obstacles comes in.

This prayer is not for yourself alone; it should also include your ex. Your ex on the other end will worry if it’s right to get back together. So, we will pray asking God to help take away obstacles of doubts if this relationship is meant to be.

Dear Heavenly Father,

I face difficulties that lead us apart. However, I recall the words of Romans 8:31, ‘If God is for us, who can be against us?’ On this ground, I pray that you empower me and my ex with Your strength to overcome the obstacles. I see a lot of them on my way to our reconciliation. I know my ex may also have their fears. This is why I ask you to help us to see any challenges as opportunities to grow together, and in your grace.


7. Prayer for Restoring Trust

You both lost some level of trust after the situation, and days of not talking to each other. But now, you need prayer to restore this trust. With trust restored, you’re both less likely to worry about a repetition of events. Let’s pray this powerful prayer that focuses on restoring trust.


Are you not a God of restoration and peace? Yes, you are. It is even stated in Psalm 85:10 that where ‘steadfast love and faithfulness meet; righteousness and peace kiss each other.’ I pray for the restoration of trust between us, that our love may be steadfast and our intentions faithful.

Help me and my ex to rebuild the trust that was lost. Help us to find peace in each other’s commitment. And most importantly, our relationship should be a testament to Your restoration.


8. Prayer for Letting Go of the Past

The tomorrow that you desire with your ex will be a great one if you both let go of the grudges of the past. You need a prayer to give you the strength to forgive and forget any conflicts you had in the past. Let’s pray this prayer:

Gracious God,

You encourage us, ‘Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing!’ (Isaiah 43:18-19) I ask for the strength to let go of past hurts and misunderstandings. Grant me the strength to forgive as You have forgiven us. Help me and my ex move forward onto a new chapter. Help us embrace the new things in our lives and to let Your love lead us into the future.


9. Prayer for Mutual Respect and Admiration

In Philippians 2:3, Paul writes, ‘Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility, value others above yourselves.’ What does this mean? In the context of getting back your ex, it means we will pray to God asking for help to establish mutual respect and admiration for each other. Remember that humility and selflessness are very important in a relationship. Let’s pray this prayer.

Heavenly Father

I pray that you inspire us to follow your footsteps of humility and selflessness as I tender prayer to get my ex back. Help us respect and admire one another’s qualities. Help us acknowledge our mutual worth in Your eyes, and strengthen our relationship with a sense of respect.


10. Prayer for a Shared Vision and Future

How about vision? This is an underrated element in any relationship. A relationship without vision is bound to failure. This simply has to do with direction. If your relationship is headless, you won’t have the best experience, and it won’t last.

As such, we will offer to God a prayer about realigning your relationship with a collective hope and direction. We need God’s promise of a hopeful future together so we can work together towards common goals. Let’s pray this prayer:

Lord Almighty,

As I seek to rebuild my past relationship, grant me and my ex a shared vision for our future. Inspire us to align our dreams and aspirations as in your promise in Jeremiah 29:11. Help us work while we strive for a future with hope, love, and shared purpose. All of these should be under your guidance.


Bible reference: ‘For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.’ (Jeremiah 29:11)

11. Prayer for Healing from Emotional Wounds

The Psalms is easily one of the best books that guide any prayer to get an ex back. It is a book of wisdom and light. So, for this prayer, we will reference Psalm 147:3 where we are reminded that ‘He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.’

Merciful God,

I pray for Your healing touch on our hearts, still aching from past hurts. Help us to find solace in Your love and from each other. May this healing process bring us closer, understanding each other’s pain and working together after emotional wholeness. May our love be a testimony to Heaven’s healing power.


12. Prayer for the Strength to Change

Dear God of Transformation,

I have seen your promise in Ezekiel 36:26: ‘I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.’ Therefore, I ask for the courage and strength to change the behaviors and patterns that have hurt my past relationship with my ex.

Please, guide us both in self-reflection. We need your inspiration to make changes that will help us grow closer to You and each other.


13. Prayer for Rekindling Friendship With Love

A rekindling friendship sounds like what you’d love when back with your ex partner. God has a promise on this too. In Proverbs 17:17, ‘A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.’ Let’s pray a prayer on this foundation pending your ex’s return:

You’re the Lord of Love and Friendship,

I pray for our relationship to be grounded in genuine friendship. Let there be love and companionship, and your support to help us enjoy each other’s company, share our deepest thoughts, and support each other. Father, help us to be true friends. Help to rekindle friendship in our love, and make our bond stronger as we get back together.


14. Prayer for Patience in the Reconciliation

Didn’t God, in Galatians 6:9, say ‘Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up’? So, for this prayer, you will acknowledge patience during the reconciliation. Ask God for patience and perseverance. This prayer is guided by Galatians 6:9 as earlier quoted above.

Father in Heaven,

I am in a phase of reconciliation with my ex. Please, grant us patience, and keep us reminded that healing and rebuilding take time. Help us not to rush the process. Grant us the grace to be patient with each other and with ourselves while restoring our relationship.


15. Prayer for God’s Intervention

Finally, we can pray about God’s intervention in the relationship going forward. This prayer will ask for God’s presence, as well as His guidance to help in resolving ongoing conflicts. We will pray asking God to encourage the belief that divine wisdom and intervention can result in peaceful and constructive resolutions.

Sovereign Lord,

You have said in Matthew 18:20 that ‘for where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.’ May Your presence be with us, and guide our conversations going forward. Help me and my returning partner find peaceful resolutions with Your spirit as our guide. I pray for mutual understanding, compromise, and mutual satisfaction in whatsoever differences we ever find ourselves.


In all that you pray, always put God in the center. In his presence, no conflict is insurmountable. If you give it your all, in physical and in prayer, yet nothing about this relationship works out, it may not be God’s wish that it is worth it in the first place. But most importantly, always be prayerful.
