Pray for Marriages (Hope and Trust)

Greetings Prayer Warriors,

Nothing rocks me more than learning of someone struggling in their marriage, especially when they are moving toward despair.  It’s like they are in a submarine that keeps diving and diving into the darkest depths until the rays of sunlight become invisible and their hopes of seeing the light diminish.  It is at this moment they must pray for hope.  More than ever they must trust in the Lord.  Yet, when one is in the darkest depths, it is often the hardest time to pray.

For in hope we were saved. Now hope that sees for itself is not hope. For who hopes for what one sees?  Romans 8:24

Prayer is the periscope.  When we pray on behalf of our brothers and sisters, we help raise the periscope so that their hope may be strengthened, their trust renewed, and they once again can see the Light breaking though their darkness. 

By waiting and by calm you shall be saved, in quiet and in trust shall be your strength. Isaiah 30:15

The LORD will fight for you; you have only to keep still.” Exodus 14:14

Dear Lord, may your healing rays of Light penetrate the dark crevasses within marriages. Renew all in hope, trust, and faith.  Enkindle the flickering remains of love and fan into flame a newer, stronger love.  May the growing flames incinerate what was bad and illumine all that is good. We ask this in the most precious name of Jesus!  Amen.

Peace, Joy, and Love,

Be a periscope for those lost in the depths of darkness.  Pass it on!
