Marriage Prayer – If We Belong to Christ We Must Also Live Like Christ

 

Dear Heavenly Father,

Our love for You isn’t truly complete if we don’t obey Your commandments. And if we claim to belong to Christ, we must also live as Christ lived.

And so we ask that you help us, Lord. Help us to love others as You would have us to love, and to love You above everything else.

If we break even one of Your laws we are guilty of all, and so we ask for your forgiveness. Help us also to forgive those who trespass against us.

If we have hate in our hearts please bring it to our remembrance so that we can exchange it for love.

Help us to put Your will over our own as we walk in the light.

In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.

And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes. – 1 John 2:3-6 & 9-11, KJV

______________________________

We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands. Whoever says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him: Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.

Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister is still in the darkness. Anyone who loves their brother and sister lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble. But anyone who hates a brother or sister is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness. They do not know where they are going, because the darkness has blinded them. 1 John 2:3-6 & 9-11, NIV
