Pray for Marriages (Comfort and Empower)

Greetings Prayer Warriors,

Marriage is like an election; you never really know what you are going to get, you only know what you were promised.  This is why it is important to know your fiancĂ©’s core beliefs and values and one’s personal history.  Just as a nation does better when it puts itself “under God,” so does a marriage.  Let us continue to pray for the wisdom of engaged couples, the strengthening of our marriages, and the health of our nation.

His divine power has bestowed on us everything that makes for life and devotion, through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and power. Through these, he has bestowed on us the precious and very great promises, so that through them you may come to share in the divine nature, after escaping from the corruption that is in the world because of evil desire. For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, virtue with knowledge, knowledge with self-control, self-control with endurance, endurance with devotion, devotion with mutual affection, mutual affection with love. 2 Peter 1:3-7

Lord, help us honor our marital commitments.  Deepen our faith, trust, and dependence on you.  Help us to live up to all we have promised. Help us to overlook the shortcomings of our spouse, as we also pray that they overlook ours.  We know that you will always fill in the gap between us, so may we never hesitate to welcome your presence. We trust in you, so help us grown in trust!  Amen.

Peace, Joy, and Love,

Prayer is a comforting balm, a powerful energy, and a faithful praise.  Pass it on to comfort and empower a loved one, and to praise our God!
