Marriage Prayer – To Get Past Our Failures
Dear Heavenly Father,
Sometimes we mess up. Some days we fail and we wonder if we’re worthy at all. A voice inside tells us we’re not. It points out our failures and our shortcomings. It reminds us of the many times we’ve disappointed each other, and the days we disappoint You. It tells us that we don’t measure up, and how we’re sinners unworthy of love.
Take our fears, our insecurities, and our doubts. Keep them at bay, Lord. Help us to destroy each and every lie with the weapon of truth. Fill us with joy.
Remind us of Your incomparable grace and how we’re washed by the blood of the Lamb. Remind us how our righteousness comes only through faith in Your son Jesus Christ.
And we’ll do our part. Loving You with all of our hearts, we’ll do our best to honor our marriage, keep Your commandments, and adhere to Your will.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. – Ephesians 2:8-10, KJV
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. – Ephesians 2:8-10, NIV
