Marriage Prayer – The Courage to Stand
Dear Heavenly Father,
Help us to keep our eyes on You, and to take them off of this world.
It’s natural to want approval, acceptance, and confirmation. But if we’re looking to gain favour from this world, and if we’re trying to please others more than You, our heart is in the wrong place.
We’re servants of Christ, not of this world. Bring us into obedience to Your will. Turn our hearts toward You and only You. Give us the wisdom to choose well, the faith to follow Your lead, and the courage to stand when our faith is put to the test.
Your Word isn’t popular, our faith isn’t mainstream, and the choices we make are confusing to many. But we’re not here to please man, we’re here to please You.
Help us to do that, Lord. Help us to faithfully serve when our faith is tested and when others are standing against us.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. – Galatians 1:10
Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ. – Galatians 1:10, NIV
