Prayer for M.O.M. (twilight years)

Good Morning Prayer Warriors!

Happy Monday. Last night I started reflecting on marriages once again, this time on couples in their “twilight” years. Their relationship seems so special. They are mutually supportive, loving, kind, protective, & thoughtful. Why these spouses even start looking like each other! There seems to be an added strength in marriages as they’ve weathered the storms. Could it be they’ve come to understand humility, their own weaknesses, and the need to be interdependent? They’ve gained patience, learned selflessness, and grown in love and respect. What can we learn from this?

Let love be sincere; hate what is evil, hold on to what is good;
love one another with mutual affection; anticipate one another in showing honor. Do not grow slack in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord.
Rejoice in hope, endure in affliction, persevere in prayer. Rom 12::9-12

Talk with a couple you admire who have been married over 30 years. Ask them the key to their joy and long-lasting marriage. Share their story with others; renew hope. Most of all pray for all marriages, especially those in most need.

May your week be blessed.

Peace, Joy, and Love,
