Today’s Marriage Prayer – To Live a Sacrificial Life

Marriage Prayer – To Live a Sacrificial Life

 

Dear Heavenly Father,

We want our lives to be centered on You, everything we do to bring glory to You, and everything we say to bring honor to You. But unless we’re living a sacrificial life, pride will always get in the way.

It’s easier to be selfish than it is to be selfless.

It’s easier to hold onto your anger than it is to walk in humility.

It’s easier to lose your temper than it is to be patient.

It’s easier to speak your mind than it is to hold your tongue.

But we’re not choosing an easy life, Lord. We’re choosing to love.

Please give us the strength to fulfill our vows, to carry our cross, and to walk in Your will.

In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. – Romans 12:1-2, KJV

______________________________

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. – Romans 12:1-2, NIV
