Pray for Marriages (Vows & Promises)

 Greetings Prayer Warriors,

As we begin Holy Week, I have been contemplating the cultural shifts that have taken place over the years.  A handshake used to be all that was needed as a promise to do something.  No contracts, just a person's word, upon which their reputation stood.

Today, there are all kinds of contracts, vows, covenants, and promises-all of which can be broken with little or no harm to one’s reputation. 

We are blessed that Jesus Christ made an eternal covenant with us.  By shedding His blood through death, we have new life and may live in Him and with Him forever.

 “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which will be shed for you.”  Luke 22:20

How are you doing on your vows and promises?  To your spouse?  To others?  To God?  Are you treating them as an eternal covenant or a breakable contract? 

Pray for a strengthening of the marriage covenant, in your life, in the life of others, and in the world.

Peace, Joy and Love,

Share the power of prayer.  Pass it on.
