Today’s Marriage Prayer – To Be Tenderhearted

Marriage Prayer – To Be Tenderhearted

 

Dear Heavenly Father,

Teach us to be tenderhearted. Show us what that looks like in a marriage, and give us the strength to carry it through.

May we be compassionate lovers who are gentle and kind–lovers who choose their words wisely and handle their emotions with care.

It’s easy to say things that sting when we’re hurt and we’re angry, but we’re choosing a better path for our lives. Bitterness is a weed that should never take root in a marriage, lest it spring up again and again.

Give us a sweet spirit of kindness, and remove any resentment and hurt that has moved its way in.

In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: and be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you. – Ephesians 4:31-32, KJV

______________________________

Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. – Ephesians 4:31-32, NIV
