Pray for Marriages (Invited Guests)

Greeting Prayer Warriors,

Most of you are quite familiar with Jesus' first miracle, which occurred during the wedding feast at Cana. A mother was teaching this story to her young son. "There was a wedding feast and the bride and groom ran out of wine at the reception. The Blessed Mother upon noting this, went to her son, Jesus, and said, 'They have no wine.' She then looked at the servant and said, 'Do whatever He tell you.' Unable to refuse any request from His mother, Jesus then changed the water into wine." Upon finishing this story, the mom then asked her young son, what he learned from this story. Thinking about it, the young son suddenly exclaimed, "Well, if anyone is going to get married, they should invite Jesus and Mary to the wedding!"

Amen!

When difficulties arise in marriage, perhaps only then do we see our true reliance on God. It is only in our need that we can be more cognizant of what he does in our lives and how much we need His grace. Let us the Lord for abundant grace while asking His mother to intercede and pray for us as well. In the quiet, let us hear her gentle voice, "Do whatever He tells you."

Obedience is better than sacrifice. 1 Samuel 15:22

Lord, we pray for those who are planning to marry or are married and haven’t yet invited You into their relationship.  Lord, stir their hearts.  As they feel your nearness, may they beckon You to come closer. As they seek to know You, may they yearn to welcome You into their marriages and seek Your blessing.   Bless them and all married couples so that the life they live and the life they build is one that glorifies you.   Amen.

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet
