Pray for Marriages (The Power of His Word)

Greetings Prayer Warriors,

This is my commandment: love one another as I have loved you.  
John 15:12

The presider at every wedding should recite this!  These eight simple words clearly define the Lord’s expectations for us toward one another, and especially for marriage.

“How can one fulfill that commandment?” you may wonder.  The prayer I read next seemed to answer that question. , ”Make us grown in his likeness by the power of his word dwelling in our hearts.” How often we underestimate the power of his Word, the “sword of the Spirit”, I mused.

Lord, help us to prioritize our time so that each day we may be fortified and strengthened by your Word. Dwell in us and transform us by increasing our ability to love our spouses as you do.  Conform our hearts to yours so that our hearts might beat as one.  May we never forget to invite you into our marriage on a daily basis, for in you we will always remain one. 

Pray and read scripture to strengthen your marriage!

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet

We are never alone, but when feeling alone, the Lord always awaits us in his Word.  Eradicate loneliness and the inability to love adequately.  Commit to reading scripture 5 minutes a day to start.  Pass it on!
