Pray for Marriages (Choosing to love)


Greetings Prayer Warriors, 

One challenge in marriage is when spouses become verbally abusive and frankly, unloving.  Does that make the person evil?  In a society that loves to label people by their behavior, we may think them as evil.  However, evil is not a “thing” but a behavior, or the consequence of that behavior as result of making bad choices.  Perhaps we should instead view people as the Creator does. 

God looked at everything he had made, and found it very good. 
Genesis 1:31 

Just as many good (wo)men have evil in their hearts as evil (wo)men have good in their hearts.

Let’s not judge, but pray and persevere in prayer on behalf of all married couples. 

Oh Lord who gave us the gift of free will, save us from our poor choices, bad behaviors, and hurtful words.   Help us to choose to love as you loved, with patience, kindness, and compassion. Lend us your eyes to see, that we may always look for the good in each other.  Lend us your heart, that we may be quick to forgive.  May we hear your voice as we seek your assistance in the quiet of prayer.    Oh Savior, save us!  Jesus we trust in You!

May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to think in harmony with one another, in keeping with Christ Jesus, that with one accord you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 15:5-6

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet
