Pray for Marriages (Beauty, Wisdom, or Faith?)

Greetings Prayer Warriors,

Beauty, Wisdom, or Faith?
Which one is the most important for a marriage to last?

When I look at so many marital relationships in disrepair, sometimes I ask myself, "Is it a marriage problem or is it a faith problem?"

Did the Lord call them to the vocation of marriage?
Did they ask Him to help them find the spouse He intended for them?
Did they invite Him to their wedding?
When problems arose, did they call out to Him for help?
Did they have the patience to wait for an answer?
Do/did they trust that he had the best answer?

Beauty fades, wisdom comes way too late, but faith held secure will bring you peace. The Lord will meet you wherever you are at, on the road, off the path, or in the desert, and He will lead you into His comforting arms. If you trust in Him, He will guide you into the fulfillment of His will.

For that which is corruptible must clothe itself with incorruptibility, and that which is mortal must clothe itself with immortality. 1 Cor 15:53

Let us pray for the spouse(s) that is/are disconnected from the Lord.
Lord hear our plea!
Let us pray for the spouse that is trusting alone.
Lord hear our plea!
Let us pray that the seeds of faith and trust begin to flower, bringing about a new springtime in marriages.
Lord hear our plea!

Jesus looked at them and said, "For human beings this is impossible, but for God all things are possible." Matthew 19:26

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet

Water the seeds of faith. Pass it on.
