Marriage Prayer – To Learn From Our Mistakes
Dear Heavenly Father,
We’ve both made mistakes. We’ve both said things, and we’ve done things that we wish we could take back.
If we could take back some of those days and redo them, we would. We’d make them better. We’d live every day to the fullest. We’d let go of the small stuff. We’d hold our tongues when we’re angry. We’d apologize quickly. We’d try to see things from the other’s point of view. We’d pray fervently. We’d nag less and love more. We’d cherish each other the way that we should.
But we can’t.
We can’t take back what’s already been said. We can’t redo what’s already been done. But we can learn from our mistakes.
Thank you for the opportunities You give us today and the ones you give us tomorrow. Help us to live wisely and to love well.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. – 1 John 1:7-9, KJV
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. – 1 John 1:7-9, NIV
