Today’s Marriage Prayer – To Be Moderate in All Things

Marriage Prayer – To Be Moderate in All Things

Dear Heavenly Father,

A lack of temperance isn’t good for the body, it’s not good for the soul, and it isn’t good for our marriage.

When we eat too much we suffer with weight gain, and when we spend too much we suffer the consequences of debt. When we sleep too much we don’t get anything done, and when we spend too much time on the internet we waste the time that we could be spending together. When we’re focused too much on this world, we lose focus of You.

Moderation is key. The question is, do we use it enough?

In first Corinthians chapter 10 Paul said that all things are lawful to him, but that they’re not all beneficial.  Although he was talking about meat offered to idols, the wisdom holds true when it comes to the every day choices we make. He also went on to say that we should seek the well being of others instead of ourselves.

And so we ask that You help us to be  self controlled. Teach us to exercise ourselves for Your glory. Remind us to pull back when we need to, and sacrifice where we should. And  teach us to use the opportunities that we’re given for the benefit of each other instead of ourselves.

In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not. Let no man seek his own, but every man another’s wealth. – 1 Corinthians 10:23-24, KJV
