Marriage Prayer – Our Battle Against the Flesh
Dear Heavenly Father.
Help us to live our best life. Give us the power and strength to let go of the baggage that’s weighing us down. To say “no” to ungodliness, and say “yes” to a self-controlled, godly life.
We both struggle in different ways. We have different temptations and battles that we’re fighting against. But we serve the same powerful God.
With one Word, you’re able to strengthen, sustain, and establish our way. With one hand You hold the power of life.
In Romans chapter 7, Paul writes, “For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.”
We know that struggle too well, Lord. Life is a constant battle against the flesh, and some days it feels like we’re losing. It’s hard to get up when we keep sliding back. The sense of defeat weighs heavy on us, and so we ask that You lift it, as You carry us through.
Our flesh is at war with the Spirit, and we desperately want our spirit to win.
Not that we can say of ourselves, “We have won!” But that we might say, “Greater is He that is in me than He that is in this world!”
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. – Titus 2:11-14, KJV
For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good. – Titus 2:11-14, NIV
