Pray for Marriages (Holy Speed Bumps)

Greetings Prayer Warriors,

Some marriages slowly fizzle, while others speed out of control.  That’s why the Lord created Holy Speed Bumps; to either awake you from your apathy or slow you down enough to see that you are heading in the wrong direction!  What is a Holy Speed Bump, you ask?  Why it’s an event or person that makes you stop, reassess, and seek to learn the Lord’s long-term plan for your marriage.  Speed bumps can be annoying, uncomfortable, and something you want to avoid, but in prayer you will see that they are a total gift of love from the Beloved, given with your eternal wellbeing in mind. Delight in your speed bumps! 

But the world will tell you otherwise, with assorted messages assaulting your brain:  “Avoid conflict.” “Battle it out!” “Seek your own gratification.”  “You deserve to be happy, don’t you?”  “You can do better.” 

Look not to what is seen but to what is unseen; for what is seen is transitory, but what is unseen is eternal.  2 Corinthians 5:18

I have told you this so that you might have peace in me. In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world. John 16:33

Please pray for those marriages most in need, that when jolted by the Holy Speed Bump, they pause, reflect, and experience the love and mercy being offered.   May they turn towards our loving God in humble prayer, trusting in Him to guide, heal, comfort, and restore, something that was once broken.

“Behold, I make all things new.”  Revelation 21:5

Peace, Joy, and Love, 
Janet

Warning:  Holy Speed Bump ahead.  Pass it on!
