Marriage Prayer – Help Us to Accept Our Differences
Dear Heavenly Father,
Help us to accept our differences. Help us to see the unique way that You formed us, and to understand that we were both created according to plan.
Please help us to nurture the gifts we see in each other. And may those gifts be sharpened and strengthened and used for Your glory.
Neither of us are perfect, which is why we need your strength in our lives. Our personalities are different, and sometimes those differences bring hurt and confusion. So we ask that you teach us to love as You love, with patience and grace.
Grant us the humility to see what we need to improve, and wisdom to make those changes.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification. For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me. For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God. – Romans 15:1-7, KJV
We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves. Each of us should please our neighbors for their good, to build them up. For even Christ did not please himself but, as it is written: “The insults of those who insult you have fallen on me.” For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.
May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God. – Romans 15:1-7, NIV
