Today’s Marriage Prayer – Marriage Isn’t Just a Piece of Paper

Marriage Prayer – Marriage Isn’t Just a Piece of Paper

 

Dear Heavenly Father,

Marriage isn’t just a piece of paper. Love isn’t just a simple word.

It’s forgiving someone when they let you down. It’s giving up your right to be right in the heat of an argument. It’s loving someone enough to step down so they can shine. It’s friendship. It’s being a cheerleader and a trusted confidant. It’s a place of forgiveness that welcomes one home, and arms they can run to in the midst of a storm. It’s grace.

We’re always growing, and we’re always learning. We try and we fail, we bless and we wound, but in it all, and through it all, we’re both learning what it really means to be a couple.

Help us to be willing students who look to You for guidance and truth. Help us to turn our eyes off of the world, away from ourselves, and on to Your perfect plan.

Give us a hunger for truth and a thirst for righteousness so that we might learn in Your presence. Help us to be a husband and wife who bring glory and honour to You.

In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. – 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, KJV

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. – 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, NIV
