Pray for Marriages (True Love)

Greetings Prayer Warriors,

Love is a decision.  It is not a feeling, but a kind, loving, compassionate, positive action toward someone.  How often our actions betray our words!

Little children, let us not love in word or speech but in deed and in truth. By this we shall know that we are of the truth, and reassure our hearts before him whenever our hearts condemn us; for God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.  Beloved, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God; and we receive from him whatever we ask, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him.  And this is his commandment, that we should believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us. 1 John 3:18-23

Lord, as we lift up all marriages in prayer, we ask  for the grace to live out true love, that is, love grounded in you.  Help guide our actions, that they may be loving even when our feelings aren’t those of love.  May our kind actions transform any negative feelings or thoughts that we cling to.  Help us empty ourselves of pride and selfishness, so that conformed to you, you may love our spouses through us.  We ask this in the most precious name of Jesus.  Amen.

I am the Lord.  I am your healer.  Exodus 15.26

Peace, Joy, and Love,

Let the healing begin.  Pass it on!
