Praying through First Samuel, Chapter 19 – Jealousy
I’m excited to share this 31-day marriage prayer series hosted by my friend and fellow blogger, Davonne Parks, The Tidy Mom. The series is taking place here at MarriagePrayers.today for the entire month of October.
Dear Heavenly Father,
As the plot in 1st Samuel thickens, we’re freshly astonished at how cruel King Saul was, all because of his jealousy towards David.
We don’t want to think we’d ever be that horrible, but every angry word we’ve spoken had the potential to put us in a similar situation. While we’re far from the mindset King Saul had, we want to remember that emotional wrath can be incredibly damaging.
Please help us use our words to build up, not tear down. Convict our hearts when we’re responding out of jealousy and show us how we can be genuinely happy for each other’s successes.
In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
“Saul also sent messengers unto David’s house, to watch him, and to slay him in the morning: and Michal David’s wife told him, saying, If thou save not thy life to night, to morrow thou shalt be slain. So Michal let David down through a window: and he went, and fled, and escaped.” 1 Samuel 19:11-12, KJV
“Saul sent men to David’s house to watch it and to kill him in the morning. But Michal, David’s wife, warned him, ‘If you don’t run for your life tonight, tomorrow you’ll be killed.’ So Michal let David down through a window, and he fled and escaped.” 1 Samuel 19:11-12, NIV
