Pray for Marriages (Hear His Voice)

Greetings Prayer Warriors,

Sometimes I amuse myself contemplating Adam and Eve’s first real fight, as they blame each other for the fall that resulted from disobeying God.  Adam blames Eve, because, well she handed him the apple.  Apparently he just hunted and gathered, and only ate what she gave him.  ;)  Then there is Eve, “If you would actually have a conversation with me sometime, I wouldn’t have been talking to that snake in the first place!”

Things haven’t changed much.  Satan continues to lure many to become their own God and do what pleases them with his subtle promptings, “Enjoy that (sinful) behavior.  It makes you happy, doesn’t it?  Why wouldn’t God want you to be happy?”

It’s seems like the importance of keeping Christ in one’s marriage and listening to His voice is undeniable. 

Oh, that today you would hear his voice: Harden not your hearts. 
Hebrews 3:15

Let us pray for married couples:
For a deeper more trusting relationship with God.
For an increase in their ability to cooperate with God’s grace.
For an end to the blame game and taking ownership.
For the desire to turn away from sin.
For mutual forgiveness for poor choices made in our past.
Lord hear our prayers!  Make haste with your grace.

Peace, Joy, and Love,

Increase the volume.  Pass it on!
