Marriage Prayer – To Grow in Love and Truth
Dear Heavenly Father,
There’s a fine balance between love and truth. Truth can hurt. It can be taken the wrong way, and it can be given the wrong way, which is why we need wisdom and grace.
Grant us wisdom to sharpen each other. Give us words that edify, encourage and build each other up. Give us the courage to share truth, but to do so in a way that is pleasing to You.
Help us to minister grace. When we love as You love, we learn that truth and grace go hand in hand. You’ve never given us one without the other. You’ve never expected us to grow without missing the mark.
By Your strength and power, teach us to love as You love.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification. For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me. – Romans 15:1-3, KJV
We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves. 2 Each of us should please our neighbors for their good, to build them up. 3 For even Christ did not please himself but, as it is written: “The insults of those who insult you have fallen on me. – Romans 15:1-3, NIV
