Pray for Marriages (Surrender)


I make all things new. Revelation 21:5

Greetings Prayer Warriors,

Today is the feast day of St. Mary Magdalene.  She is so relatable.  Like us, she was sinner who struggled to free herself from sin, continually battling the demons in her life.  We entertain our demons because we think they will bring us some level of joy, albeit fleeting, but instead the result is usually a pendulum of emotions: pleasure-pain-pleasure-pain.  Like her, we often wait until we hit rock bottom to change.  She literally hit “rock bottom” in that she was going to be stoned for her behaviors!  With great courage, she humbled herself and sought new life in the Christ.  Sweet surrender!

So whoever is in Christ is a new creation: the old things have passed away; behold, new things have come.  2 Corinthians 5:17

Assess the demons in your life, your marriage.   Perhaps it’s time to clean house! Clean your own “house” before you look at the filth in your spouse’s house.  No matter what you have done, no matter how shameful you may feel, the love of Christ is waiting.  Do not wait for rock bottom, but if you are already there do not despair, for we are praying for you constantly.  Make the decision to surrender into the arms of Christ.  He will help cast out your demons.  Free yourself at last!

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet

Give someone hope. Help them surrender.  Pass it on!
