Pray for Marriages (Choose Life!)

Greetings Prayer Warriors!

Marital oneness can often feel like an unachievable goal.

God in the beginning created human beings and made them subject to their own free choice. Sirach 15:14

In marriage, often the free choice is, do I think about me or us or some combination of the two?

If you choose, you can keep the commandments; loyalty is doing the will of God. Sirach 15:15

Reactive choices aren’t always the best.  Are we taking into consideration God's will for our marriage?

Set before you are fire and water; to whatever you choose, stretch out your hand.  Sirach 15:16

Sometimes the choice feels like it's one between burning or drowning, a lose-lose situation. But rather the choices are between our enflamed will (death) or His sustaining will (life), the water of rebirth through Jesus Christ.                                                                      

I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life! Deuteronomy 30:19

Let us pray for marriages, that each one be strengthened in courage and perseverance to choose life.  May each spouse be infused with His grace, so that they have no doubt that his grace will renew and sustain their marriage.

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet

Doing the will of God is actually the easier path; it just has more blind intersections.  Trust and believe in his protection! Pass it on!
