How to Pray for Your Ex


“Thanks for the EX-perience. Our time has EX-pired. Now, EX-it my life.” ~Anonymous

We All Have One...

The infamous "Ex". Everybody's got one, and everyone - including your ex - needs prayer.

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. ~ Matthew 5:43-45, New International Version

But prayer creates vulnerability, doesn't it?

The difference with prayer is who you are vulnerable to. Prayer makes you vulnerable to a loving Savior while keeping you safe from the pain of your past.

I am not saying your hesitations are not justified. I am saying God is asking each of us to represent him on the earth. This can be hard to fathom especially if the wounds are still fresh, but this level of obedience in prayer can absolutely change your life. And in no way do you have to interact with your ex or make them feel a certain kind of way because you decide to pray. What you do in secret, Heaven rewards openly. This kind of intercessory prayer is exclusive; just GOD 'n You.

We have a responsibility to pray for those who persecute us, and it comes with great reward.

Praying for your EX-emy places their issues and your pain at the foot of the Cross. The weight becomes what the bible calls "a light affliction". You can share sacred secrets here. No limits. No judgment. It helps you keep your sanity intact and your temper controlled. In other words child of God, this emotional sacrifice is as much (or more) for you as it is for them because you are an heir and you deserve better.

You are a citizen of the Kingdom.

You are a sibling of the risen savior, and since you deserve better, do better.

Live better.

Love better.

Pray better.
