A PRAYER FOR OUR MARRIAGE
The value of two people, particularly husband and wife, being in agreement with each other cannot be calculated.
If two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for it will be done for you by your Father in heaven. Matthew 18: 19
Use this confession daily – don’t wait for an emergency.
Remember, love never fails!
Father, it is written in Your Word that You have poured out Your love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, Whom You have given to us. Rom 5:5 Your love endures forever. 2 Chron 20:21 and is new every morning. Great is Your faithfulness. Lam 3:22
We know and rely on the love You have for us. Because You loved us we can truly love each other. There is no fear in love but perfect love drives out fear. 1 John 4: 15-18 You have given us a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline. 2Tim 1:7
Thank You that our love for each other abounds more and more in knowledge and depth of insight. Phil 1:9 We clothe ourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, forgiving every grievance we may have against each other as You have forgiven us. And over all these virtues we put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Col 3:12-15
We stay completely humble and gentle, remaining patient and bearing with each other in love, Eph 4:2 that nothing may hinder our prayers. 1 Pet 3:7 We desire above all things that our lives are worthy of You and please You in every way, bearing fruit in every good work and growing in the knowledge of God. Col 1:10
Our love for each other is patient and kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Our love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Cor 13:4-7
Father, in flesh and in spirit we are Yours, Mal 2:14 our marriage is honourable and our marriage bed remains pure. Heb 13:4 You have united us, so we have become one flesh. Gen 2:24 We will not permit anything – person, possession or pursuit – to separate what ~You have joined together. Matt 19:6 We guard ourselves in our spirits, that we do not break faith with our partner. You are our witness. Mal 2:14-15
We love and respect each other, as Your Word says Eph 5:33 and we follow the way of love 1 Cor 14:1 which never fails. 1 Cor 13:8
