Pray for Marriages (Knock, Seek, Receive)

Greetings Prayer Warriors,

“Lord, Son of David, have pity on us!” Matthew 20:31

Thus was the cry to the Lord for help from two who desperately wanted to be healed. This could easily be the cry of a couple, whose marriage is crumbling.

A request of such heartfelt desire must begin with faith. Faith that the Lord has the power to heal even that which may seem un-healable to others.

“What do you want me to do for you?” Matthew 20:3

Although the Lord knows our heart, he wants us to ask Him for what we need. It’s almost as if asking is necessary to show our faith and trust in Him as the Divine Physician. Also, when we ask for huge favors it deflates our pride and results in humility.

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. 
Matthew 7:7-8

Everyone knows of a marriage in need of healing grace. Perhaps it’s your own. Seek and knock on behalf of yourself or others. Knock loudly and repeatedly. Seek in prayer and petition what is needed. Be specific. Expect that the door of the Lord’s heart will open, and rivers of love and healing grace will flow out.

Will not God then secure the rights of his chosen ones who call out to him day and night? Will he be slow to answer them? Luke 18:7

God is good all the time!  Believe, trust, and rejoice!

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet

Knock, seek, and be ready to accept His grace! Pass it on!
