Marriage Prayer – To Get Past Our Disagreements
Dear Heavenly Father,
Teach us the best way to get past our disagreements. When we argue and fight, remind us that we always have the power to choose our reaction.
We can wallow in sorrow, stew in our anger, and hold onto our pride, or we can love with humility, compassion, and grace.
Help us to make the right choice—to reject the urge to get even, to exercise patience, and to do our best to understand.
May we always remember that we’re both a work in progress, learning and growing in grace.
Give us a passion to live as Christ lived; the strength to walk in humility, and the wisdom to put down our pride.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
But I say unto you, that whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca*, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. – Matthew 5:22-24, KJV
But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca,’* is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.
“Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift. – Matthew 5:22-24, NIV
