You are Creator and Keeper of marriages. Today, I lift to you all believing couples of this generation. I pray that we are an example of real love~ as a model of Christ and His church.
Give us intention in our words and tones. Allow us to purposefully give time to one another in communication and affection. May we show our children stable, strong, and steadfast love in our homes.
Help my husband and I to be friends with each other. Instill joy into our daily relationship. May our actions show the priorities that mean most to us: 1) God 2) Marriage 3) Children.
Help us to be excellent forgivers and may we commit to pray together to build a foundation of Your truths in our home. Renew our love and commitment to each other and may we always seek to bless our spouses.
Help us, God, to get this relationship right so that our children inherit a legacy of lasting, ever-growing love. ❤️
In Jesus’ name,
“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone?”
Ecclesiastes 4:9-11 NIV
“Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.”
Ephesians 5:21-29, 31-33 NIV
