Pray for Marriages (Military Spouses)
Greetings Prayer Warriors!
Have you taken some time for reflection on this Memorial Day?
The Lord teaches us to love others more than ourselves. One example of this love is among those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces. Training, transfers, deployments, and wars keep the men and women of our armed forces always on the move, limiting their time with family. While giving their lives in service, many have lost their lives, leaving behind spouses and children.
No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s
life for one’s friends.John 15:13
Today let us pray in thanksgiving for all the sacrifices made by our military men and women that have benefited us as a nation. Let us especially pray for the spouses who carry the burden of being left behind to manage everything, that they may find strength in Him when they are feeling tired and lonely. Let us pray for the spouses who have been widowed, either recently or in the past. May their emotional wounds continue to heal, as He comforts them and leads them to restful waters. Finally, let us pray that we remain “one nation under God” so that we as a nation will never lose our right to be counseled, consoled, and comforted by a priest, minister, or rabbi, especially in our greatest need.
It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you. John 15:16
