When I quarreled with my husband because of his constant business trips, the conflict was so serious that there was already a thought about a divorce. My husband practically did not talk to me, and I lost so much confidence in him that I thought that he had a new woman in another city. Destroying a marriage was hard, and asking for forgiveness and being the first to take a step towards reconciliation is even harder.
I decided to honor the prayers of reconciliation. During the repetition of the text of the prayer, she cried a lot, survived once more and released all the insults. The next day, my husband phoned from a business trip and said that he had bought me a gift - a golden jewel that he misses me very much. Now we are a very strong and happy couple, because in any conflict situation I pray, and prayer helps unite and strengthen the family.
Prayer - Help of Higher Forces
Unfortunately, in our world, quarrels and conflicts are commonplace. Especially hard when quarreling those who love each other. Sometimes families are destroyed because of a trifle: unwashed dishes, misunderstandings, the wrong gift, random offenses.
Jesus Christ taught that we should forgive our enemies. Forgiveness is an important part of the spiritual life of an Orthodox person. Our husbands and loved ones are not enemies at all, so why is it so difficult sometimes to forgive each other and begin to live a new life, without offense and feelings? Yes, this is true: sometimes it is easier for us to forgive a stranger, but not a spouse.
How to overcome this problem? Fathers of the church have always advised us in difficult situations to pray for the Lord to send us the right answer. Prayer is an amazing and very powerful tool for restoring peace in a relationship. When we pray, our pride is tamed, we begin to understand that the most important thing in the world is not to prove our case, but to live in peace with my husband.
To make up, you should not suffer from wounded pride or wait until the partner himself takes the first step. The best solution is to read a few days prayer for reconciliation of the warring. A miracle will happen! Understanding the beloved will be complete again, and love will flare up with a new force.
If your partner is really guilty of something, then after the prayer you will find the strength to forgive him.

He, for his part, will be able to forgive you more easily and accept your mistakes.
Because in the event of a conflict, two are always to blame. It does not happen that one is completely pure: we are angry, offend each other, do not give each other support and love. All this eventually leads to conflicts.
