Marriage Prayer – To Give Each Other Our Best
Dear Heavenly Father,
At the end of the day, it’s easier to give each other what’s left of our self than it is to give each other our best. Some days it’s easier to be a roommate than it is to be a close companion and friend. But we want more for our marriage, Lord. Help us to put in the effort to get there.
We started out as friends. We were gentle and kind, compassionate and determined to win each other’s heart.
Help us to bring back that passion. Give us a deep desire to pursue one another as intimate lovers and friends.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. – Luke 6:38, KJV
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Luke 6:38, NIV
