You have the keys of Heaven at your disposal...

Jesus gave us the keys to Heaven to "bind up" the evil and "loose" the good.
"I will give you the keys of the kingdom of Heaven; and whatever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in Heaven, and whatever you shall loose on earth, shall be loosed in Heaven." Matt 16:19

Remove the evil. Find a verse concerning what you want to remove.
You must bind the "strong man", which is the bad spirit (demon, power, principality) that has a hold of the person you are praying for. Search for a verse of scripture that you can pray. "But no'one can enter the strong mans house, unless he first binds the strong man." Mark 3:27

Replace the evil with good.
This is very important! "When the unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and not finding any, it says, 'I will return to my house from which I came.' And when it comes, it finds it swept and put in order. Then it goes and takes along seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they go in and live there; and the last state of that man becomes worse then the first." Luke 11:24-26

A good example of this is, you pray the scripture over your spouse that binds the strongman...

"God grants ______ repentence leading him to a knowledge of truth that _____ will come to his senses and escape from the trap of the devil who has taken him captive to do his will. _______ shakes himself from the dust, arises and sits enthroned. _______ frees himself from the bands on his neck, he/she is a child of Zion. From 2 Tim 2:25-26 and I am not remembering the other scripture source right off hand..these are some God gave me when I was in the trial by fire to use and I wrote them but did not note scripture references, but they are all scripture.

Then you could replace with:

"For you _____, were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. _______will live as a child of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. ______will have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. Ephesians 5: 8-11

Always speak with authority also..just like the Lord told Ezekiel to take authority and prophesize to the dry bones in the valley. If you want to see how much power you have through God to take authority over things, then read Ezekiel 37:1-14. So when you speak scripture over your spouse and situation, do so with authority in Christ...note how instead of saying "God, may you grant____ repentence..." I said, "God grants ______repentence..." God wants you to speak the things you desire as though they already are.

If you fail to replace.
If you fail to replace what you have removed, it will become worse then before you prayed. You must always replace something evil with something good. This is one reason why so many who go on diets actually gain more weight. The stop eating the bad, but never replace it with something good such as exercise. This is kind of difficult for some..but the truth is, as the Bible states, we are warring against powers and principalites. When satan was cast out of Heaven, 1/3 of the angels went with him, and these angels became dark angels, more pointedly demons, and it is these demon spirits that onto or into humans and influence them away from God. This is what you are dealing with in your spouse, and if you think there are no such things as demons, you better get to reading Gods word...He explicitly states that you do not war against the flesh..or humans in other words, but the powers of the dark world. Jesus cast out many demons in His walk on earth, and He left us with the authority to cast them out, giving us the power to do so on pentecost when He gave us His Spirit. His word also tells us that if you remove one and it is not replaced with good, or God, it will go out a round up seven more even more evil and bring them back in. I know for a fact this is true..been there and done that. If you are under attack of the enemy...broken marriage is one of his greatest attacks, then you better get smart about what you are fighting must know who and what your adversary is if you intend to defeat them. Your spouse has been taken into captivity by satan and his demon spirits to do his bidding...bottom line, and this is why they have went off into adultery, drugs, gambling, whatever it may be that they have went into and become that has destroyed your marriage. If you want to get them back, set them free, get your home restored...then you better get straight on what you are dealing with and know that your only hope is in God, working with God for the victory against satan and his minions as I call them.

Replace the lies with the truth.
The truth is only found in His word. Unless what you hear, what you read, what someone tells you matches up with a principle in God's word, it is a lie! One of those lies is to move on and forget your spouse...that is totally against Gods word..God hates divorce, He intended marriage to be forever, and if you want to save that marriage, God will help you do it! Bottom line! This goes for subsequent marriages also, it does not pertain only to first marriages and I can show you the scripture to prove that.

Replace the "arm of flesh" with the "Lord".
Replace trusting in "the arm of the flesh" (you, your spouse, your friend, a pastor, whomever) with trusting in the Lord. "Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might." Eph. 6:10 This does not mean that you cannot lean of anyone, talk to anyone, listen to anyone, this means that you seek the Lord first and foremost. God uses others to talk to you, to give you His Rhema word (spoken word directly from Him to you). But do not depend on others to fix your problems, do not look to them for the help, the fix, as that comes only from the Lord. Spilling your guts to your missing spouse is not going fix the situation, it is only going to give the enemy controlling your spouse more ammunition against you. Remember, you are not dealing with your spouse, it is not your spouse who is doing anything to you, it is satan and his demon spirits who have taken your spouse captive. Do not consort with the enemy, let God deal with them and you just deal with God.

Replace running away with running to Him!
"God is our refuge and our strength, a very present help in time of trouble." Ps. 46:1. Run to the book of Psalms! Read Psalms (and Proverbs) daily. Pray Psalm scriptures over your situation. Psalms is one Bible book that you find something that contends with every given thing in your situation, from adultery to unGodly friends influencing your spouse and praying to block them, cut them off, from your spouse. Psalms is the book of artilliary in a sense, Davids Psalms, as God was always leading David into battles, and that is much of what David wrote about. It is suggested that you read the Psalms that correspond to the day of the month plus 30 until the end of the book, so today is the 31st of May, which means you would read Psalms 31, 61, 91, and 121, then read the corresponding Proverb, which would be Proverbs Chapter 31. Or, some say since Psalm 119 is so long, they read it on the 31st of each month.

Replace crying out to another with crying out to Him!
He promises to hear you and to lift you up immediately! But you must cry out! Don't think to yourself, "Well, God hasnt helped me in the past!" If He didnt help, its simply because you didnt ask. "Ask and it shall be given you, seek and you shall find." Matt. 7:7 I have had people tell me that the only reached a breakthrough response once they got broken and on their faces before God..sincerely crying out to Him. Many of whine and cry around, more like complainers and weaklings then actual distress. This just indicated lack of faith and one must have faith to please God, the word says so. God spoke to me to scream out once, with the scripture about marching around the city of Jericho for six days, then on the seventh day have seven priests blowing trumpets while marching around the city seven times, and when the people hear the long blast from the trumpets, they were to give a loud shout and then the wall of the city would collapse. I was going to go find a empty field and just shout at the top of my lungs, because one thing I know for sure, obedience to what God tells you to do is imperative and it does not matter how crazy it is, the thing He is telling you to has a divine purpose behind it. But I had prayer meeting that night and as we all stood holding hands around the prayer alter, pastor said that God spoke to him and told him that on the count of seven all of us were to shout at the top of our lungs. This is how God works, He confirms everything He tells you to do, and I did not have to find a field, God gave to me brothers and sisters in Christ to hold hands with and shout just as He told me to do that day, by giving Pastor Frank the same message at prayer meeting that night. It was a couple days later that my husband came home. :-)

God bless...
