Pray for Marriages (Hope Does Not Disappoint)


Greetings Prayer Warriors,

What’s interesting about the bible is that it isn’t filled with stories about saints, but rather riveting stories about sinners.   The fact of the matter is most of us have more in common with the sinners than the saints anyway.   But what is so mind-blowing in these stories is how the grace of God transforms some of the worst sinners into the biggest saints. Consider David who murdered the husband of the woman he lusted after, but later was not only made King, but Jesus descended from his line! We all know Peter who denied the Lord three times just after professing he would die for the Lord, yet was later given the “keys to the kingdom” and made head of His church (Pope), and  finally Saul (later Paul), who persecuted the followers of Jesus and consented to the stoning of Stephen (the first martyr) yet was later used by the Lord to preach the gospel to the ends of the earth. Wow!  How transformative the love and mercy of God is!  There is hope for all of us! 

You have made known to me the paths of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence.  Acts 2:28

No matter the state of your marriage or the marriage of a loved one, know that Christ can transform it starting with you!  Remain hopeful, immerse yourself in prayer, and rivers of transforming grace will flow.  He will take you to places unimagined!

I will rejoice heartily in the LORD, my being exults in my God; For he has clothed me with garments of salvation, and wrapped me in a robe of justice. Isaiah 61:10

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet

Hope does not disappoint. Pass it on!
