Pray for Marriages (Inspiration from His Disciples)

Greeting Prayer Warriors,

As a follower of Christ, it’s easy to ponder both the complexity and simplicity of “love one another”.  But faith in action is much harder, especially in one’s own home.  When marriage moves from the hilltop to the valley, living the gospel seems much harder.  Perhaps one can find inspiration from Jesus’ disciples.

In everything we commend ourselves as ministers of God, through much endurance, in afflictions, hardships, constraints… by purity, knowledge, patience, kindness, in a holy spirit, in unfeigned love, in truthful speech, in the power of God; with weapons of righteousness at the right and at the left. 2 Corinthians 4, 6-7

Lord, help each of us to live the gospel message of love in our marriage.  With your grace, accelerate our growth in the fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.  Keep us firmly grafted to You, that we may blossom fully, radiating You in all that we do. Bless all marriages, especially those most withered, that all might come to a new and greater life in You.

Peace, Joy, and Love,

Cry out in prayer to the Master Gardner.  Pass it on!
