Pray for Marriages (Trust in the Author)

Greetings Prayer Warriors,

Marriage may be waning in popularity, but its importance will never diminish, as God is its Author. Marriage is not of human origin, which must be why Satan tries so hard to destroy it!

Interestingly, the Lord started creation with a married couple. He commanded that they continue to get to “know” each other so that family would become the center of their lives. The Lord made marriage so special that he even willed that His own Son be born into a family unit. What a mystery is this sacramental union that bears fruit!

Unfortunately from the earliest days of marriage when free will was used for the good of self and not the other, trouble began. Millenniums later, free will is still tripping up marriages.  However with faith in our Lord, hope in his promises, and receptiveness to the gift of His love, all may come to know within their marriages that:

“My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness”.

Dear Lord, the Author of all good things, make our faith abundant, increase our hope, and boost our capacity to love in spite of disappointment, hurts, hardships, insults, emotional or physical abandonment, or betrayals .  May your grace cause all to proclaim:

I will rather boast most gladly of my weaknesses, in order that the power of Christ may dwell with me. 2 Corinthians 12:9

Holy Spirit, shower your grace upon marriages making them beacons of your wisdom and power so that all glory and honor may be yours both now and forever.  Amen.

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet

May your marriage be a tribute to it’s Author. Pass it on!
