Pray for Marriages (Resolutions for the New Year)

Greeting Prayer Warriors,

The New Year is almost here, so it’s time to decide whether you will make some resolutions for 2016 and what they should be.  Perhaps you are drawing a blank.  Let me help get you started, especially in regards to your marriage!


Pray more.  Prayer helps every marriage, often in unseen ways.  If you are single, pray for other marriages or for your future spouse. 

Pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:17

Practice forgiveness.  For annoyances, breeches of trust, etc., seek resolution and then forgive.

Be angry but do not sin; do not let the sun set on your anger, and do not leave room for the devil. Ephesians 4:26-27

Seek Unity. Perhaps this will be the focus of your prayers.  Put God at the center and allow Him to do the heavy lifting. 

Preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:3

Let the peace of Christ control your hearts, the peace into which you were also called in one body. And be thankful. Colossians 3:15


Give thanks and praise to the Lord.   In honoring one another, we honor God. 

Rejoice always. In all circumstances give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16, 18


Lord, may your grace fall heavily upon these precious prayer warriors.  Where they are weak, their prayer is strong.  Richly bless them for their faithfulness to prayer, and may your ears be ever attentive to their requests.  Grant them peace, fortitude, and perseverance on whatever path you have placed them on and extend your blessings to their entire family.  May they praise You always and forever.  Amen.

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet
