A 40 Day Fast And Prayer For Marriage – Starting Feb.13th


Today marks the beginning of a 40 day fast and prayer for marriage!  I invite you to join us in fasting and praying in faith that God will move in amazing ways in each of our marriages!  When we launched this fast last year I felt so much closer to God and to my husband.  One woman who joined me in the fast commented and said,

“This fast saved my marriage!”

For more information on fasting please check out my article from last years 40 Day Fast:

Fasting For My Marriage

There are two simple questions that you need to answer to do this fast…

What are you fasting from?

What are you fasting for?

When you fast from something it should be something that would be challenging for you to give up.  Fasting from something is a sacrifice and it represents the sacrifice Jesus made for us of dying on a cross for our sins, so that we may have eternal life with God!  Every time you desire that thing in the next 40 days it should remind you to thank Jesus for His sacrifice and it should also remind you to pray!

You can pray and petition for anything, but I urge you to also be in prayer for your marriage!

My husband and I decided to fast from two things.  One is eating out!  The convenience of eating out has always so easy for us, but I am excited about this challenge!  I hope that it also encourages more family time spent at home as a result. :)  The other is more personal that I won’t be sharing about.

We are praying for more intimacy in our marriage.  That we can reconnect and grow deeper of our understanding of one another.  We are also praying for Unveiled Wife!  That God takes this ministry to the next level and that many more wives join our community and become inspired!

Also, today I shared a video message on a correlation found in the story of Esther that was perfect for leading us into this fast!  Please check that out below:

“Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” – Hebrews 4:16

Some of you are experiencing hardships in your marriage, maybe a crazy cycle that won’t stop spinning or you and your  husband are on the verge of divorce…. Please consider joining us in this fast and pray in faith that God will restore your marriage!

It is not too late to join us!! No matter what day it is…JUST JUMP IN!

If you are going to join us please make a declaration by leaving a comment that says “IM IN!!”

Advisory: For anyone abstaining from food, please be cautious and aware that it will affect your body.  You may experience shortness in attitude, irritation, or some cases nausea.  If you have any kind of health issues you may want to consult with your doctor first!

  • Mrs gillom

    I’M IN!! Will start my first day of fasting tomorrow. I’m fasting from sweets ( chips, cakes, pop, juice, candy)My husband is not saved, and Satan has his hands on him. He left home three months saying he wants a separation. He still has his things here and comes home but he’s not here everyday only 5 days out the week. I put him out then he came back but did not end the affair. We’ve been married for 2 years, but together longer.We have 4 children ages 9,8,6, and 1) He’s committed adultery (Im sure more than once), addicted to marijuana, drinks, clubs, and he’s just out in the world. I’m fasting and expecting God to change my husband’s heart, bring death to the affair he’s having,remove the spirit of temptation, bring him home, restore my marriage and family, Im asking for a renewed spirit, emotional healing, and for a marriage that is centered around christ. I know that GOD has all power and he can do anything BUT fail. Please pray for me and I will do the same for you.

    I’m in! My marriage is dangerously nearing divorce. We are in the early stages of the process. I DO NOT want my marriage to end. My husband and I have had a lot thrown at us in the 9 short years of our life together (we’ve been married 7) and I know without a doubt that he is the one I am meant to be with. I’m fighting with all my might to save it. I’m new to this site but it has already helped restore my faith and helped me stay focused on fighting the good fight even on my weakest days. Today is one of those days.

    I know that I am late, as I’m just now seeing this. But I AM IN. My husband and I have been separated for 9 months, and have been dating each other again for the past 4 months. We are both very cautious and worried about getting back together because we don’t want to fail, and more importantly hurt our children again. So I am in. I am fasting from all sweets (as I take a deep breath). I pray that my husband decides to join me in the fast.

  • Crys

    I’m in and fasting from chocolate and praying for the restoration of my marriage and my husband to return to God. I have made many mistakes and God has been so gracious in showing me and changing me during this time. We have been separated for 6months and my husband is wanting things to end and i feel is not far off wanting divorce. God has shown me that i need to stand for my marriage and never give up, trusting Him in the darkness. God has spoken to me like never before and i am so encouraged by His interest in my/our lives. Keep going everyone and “let us not become weary in doing good for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we don’t give up” Galatians 6v9

  • Lindsay Walton

    My husband and I are both in! We started our fast today because I just came across this blog over the weekend. My husband and I have been married a year and a half and we are currently in our Junior year of college. Being in college, working, and being married all at the same time has presented it’s challenges—but we are longing to grow further in love with the Lord and with each other. I am choosing to fast from social media (Facebook & Twitter) and reality TV shows that depict unedifying, dishonoring behavior (especially of a wife). We are so looking forward to what God does in and through us during this time of prayer and fasting!

  • Donna Huth

    Hi Kelly O’Brien, My name is Donna Huth, recently married for the second time also. I am truly sorry for the loss of your 1st husband and at the same time, I know that God will bless your marriage now. I also have had people look down on me and say that because I was married once and divorced that biblically I am not allowed to marry a second time. I married at the age of 16, divorced by the age of 18 and did not know God at that time in my life. I had not remarried until October 27, 2012. I am now 47 years young and have been walking with the Lord for the past 6 1/2 years now and I know without a doubt that God has blessed my marriage. God does not hold my 1st marriage and divorce against me because I was lost in this dark world at that time. I have been forgiven, therefore I now live with God’s blessing. My point here is that you know in your heart that you also have God’s blessing in your second marriage so therefore, don’t give the enemy the satisfaction of taking that away. My prayer for you is that you don’t give that persons opinion a second thought and that you move forward and be blessed.

  • Donna Huth

    I’m in!!! The devil has been working overtime on me here lately. I’ve been walking with the Lord now for 6 1/2 years and never have I not had a desire to be in church and in fellowship with my brothers and sisters in Christ until now. I finally had to open up to my husband last night about what I’ve been dealing with. It was very hard to do. We’ve only been married since Oct 27, 2012. Praise God that he is very understanding. I pray that my husband can and will step up to the plate and be the strong spiritual leader of our home as God has called him to be. I am asking God for his strength to fight against the enemy because I cannot do it in my own strength. God, please I pray that you fill my heart with that burning fire for you. Oh God, I want to know you more now than ever. And last I pray that you fill our marriage with your love, your mercy and your grace. Amen P.S. I am fasting from sweets and soda. Also for my husband to desire fellowship and to desire an active lifestyle. May our God bless all these marriages!!!

  • Angel Pyles

    I’m in. I have prayed for my husband to be the spiritual leader in our marriage. I also pray that I can love him sexually the way God designed us. This is my prayers as we fast. Thanks so much for all you do!

I am fasting to stop eating anything with sugar. I love sweets but this is so worth giving up anything with added sugar for. I am excited to begin this. Thank you so much!!

    I’m in… My husband, Ray, and I are in need of having our marriage be put in ICU. I am fasting (half fast), and refraining from drinking tea. Only drinking herbal tea this month. Our marriage is in a shambles, and only the Love of God and the Holy Spirit can pull us through. Please pray for our marriage. We love each other desperately, but ran into trouble when my husband lost his job just after we got married 10 years ago. He has had a few odds and ends as employment, but the longest he worked since we were married was 3 years, which he lost nearly 4 years ago. He has been suffering from debilitating depression, has low testosterone, and has sleep aptnea. We also suspect that he is bi-oplar. He is too afraid to get diagnosed because he thinks he will lose his job that he recently started. He started driving a school bus in November, which he seems to enjoy. We met and fell in love via http://www.christiansinglesdating.com and have a lot in common. We IM’ed for nearly the whole of 2002, and were married on November 9, 2002. We have two little men who need us both in our lives, and we need and love each other. I feel Satan has been after our marriage because we are from two different countries, and we want to do what is right in the eyes of the Lord. I know we can overcome this, as we both love God and are trying to do what is right in His eyes. Please pray for restoration, reconcilliation, rejuvenation- and the 4th “R” that I can’t think of. We long to have a marriage that is a cord of 3 strands; i.e. God, Husband (Ray) & Wife (Wendy). Thank you very much for praying for our marriage.


    Please also pray for Michael & Sheila. Their marriage is also in desperate need of love that only the Holy Spirit can give.
    This is my motto… (please click the link) We need our marriage to be a cord of 3 strands; God, a husband, and a wife.

  • Amber

    I’m late, but I’m in! Our marriage is hurting. We’ve been together for almost seven years, but married for only one. This last year has been the hardest by far. We work together, we are in ministry together and of course we live together. Many of our issues began when the three of these intersected. I have been trying SO hard, but just don’t feel like I can do anything right. I’m fasting for guidance as to whether I should be looking for a new job, how to say and do the right things to be encouraging to my husband and, finally for us to fall in love with one another all over again. I’ll be fasting Pinterest.

We have gone through a rough patch of infidelity so I’m praying for complete restoration in my marriage. I’m also believing that I will get pregnant this year as we have been trying for the past 6 years. I’m praying and believing this year is the year of restoration and new beginnings.

    I’m not a wife but a husband but I would like to join the fast for the restoration of my marriage as well. It’s amazing that this fast started on 02/13/13… that was our 20th wedding anniversary. Two days after our anniversary and the day after Valentine’s Day, she filed a TPO against me. But even with that, I love her with all my heart and every day, I fall more in love with her. I commit to fasting from all sweets.

  • Jo

    I’m in my marriage is broken at the moment. I pray to the lord for a miracle to enable my husband to see that he still truly loves me and wants to make it work. He says he doesn’t know that we are different people now and he will always love me but is not in love with me anymore. He says he needs to be 110% certain before he will return because he doesn’t want to put our two daughters through this again. Please help him see that there is a way home and that we can be together for a lifetime creating happy memories. I have been drinking wine every night since he left to help me get to sleep. I made a promise to Jesus that I won’t drink wine again for the whole of lent. I pray every day for a miracle, this hurts so so much.

    I’m IN !!!!! I think this is an awesome way to prayer for our marriages. I have an amazing man, but I know prayer can only make our marriage stronger!!! My husband works 2nd shift so we don’t get to spend a lot of time together as he doesn’t get home till around 10:30 pm. With working full time and taking care of the family in the evenings I don’t have much time to get everything done before he gets home…so I am still cleaning house, doing laundry and just everyday things that need to be done. My fasting will consist of making my husband my number one priority when he gets home. I will make the time to sit down and spend quality time with him every evening for the next 40 days. The house work, laundry and other things will just have to second place. I think this challenge will help me to re-prioritize some things in my life and hold me accountable for how I use my time. I am so excited about this and to see how my husband reacts to our evenings together.

    I’m in! I really need this time of fasting and sacrifice! I went to a prayer group yesterday and asked for prayers for my marriage and one lady said, “Oh, it’s your second marriage? Those never last!” I felt so discouraged as I came, on my knees and in tears, imploring for prayers and I left feeling so judged. Little did the lady know that my 1st husband died and my current husband has been single for 10 yrs. UGH! Anyway, thank you for this “accountability” support. Giving up all sweets (chocolate – my fave) and I just know it will be worth it for the sake of my marriage!

    Please help, I really want to participate and pray for my marriage but I am still not clear on fasting. I think that fasting is not eating throughout the day. Only drink. So only eat after six pm. But sometimes i hear that people fast by maybe not doing sth, so not necesarily not eating the whole day. So please advise what I am suppose to do, not eat the whole day or choose sth is hard for me to do without and not do it for the next 40 days

    I’m In! We also eat out a lot out of convenience. It’s cheaper to eat out than cook for two. It would be a challenge to cook everyday and eat without the tv. But, even more challenging for me is to stop feeding my imagination in regards to my husbands past behavior, which we’re working towards healing. I’d love to give this up and just stop and pray whenever a thought enters my mind. Thanks for the invite:)

    Confession: I’m terrible at fasting. I cave…every time. So to keep myself honest this go-round, I’ll say here that I’m in. I will be fasting from afternoon snacks. I know that doesn’t sound big, but I think I can meet that challenge, yet it will still hurt a little, you know.

    I woke up this morning with my mind made up to fast today… Completely unaware of my direction but aware of my spiritual hunger. This has clarified my hunger to Fast. I know He has a plan for my family in these 40 days and I woke up ready… you’ve helped the reason.
    I am amazed to stumble across your invite to join in fasting.
