Marriage Prayer – To Keep Our Marriage Bed Pure
Dear Heavenly Father,
As we seek to serve you in every area of our marriage, may we be affectionate in ways that are pleasing to You.
Ignite the passion between us. Give us the strength to keep our marriage pure, and teach us to love the way that we need to be loved.
May we never forget that our bodies belong to each other, and also to You.
Please remind us to cherish the physical part of our relationship so that we aren’t leaving this important part of our marriage behind.
If we’re tired, worn out, or stressed, remind us to be compassionate and understanding so that we can move through these seasons together.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency. – 1 Corinthians 7:3-5, KJV
The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body but yields it to her husband. In the same way, the husband does not have authority over his own body but yields it to his wife. Do not deprive each other except perhaps by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. – 1 Corinthians 7:3-5, NIV
