Today’s Marriage Prayer – To Love Each Other as We Do Ourselves

Marriage Prayer – To Love Each Other as We Do Ourselves

 

Dear Heavenly Father,

There are two things that can transform a marriage–two things that can soften a heart, and draw a couple closer together than they ever imagined: to love You with all of their hearts, and to love each other as themselves.

Some days we don’t measure up. We let ourselves down–we let each other down. We’re not the perfect couple we imagined we would be.

Yet righteousness is imparted to us by Your Son, Jesus Christ. Your love is unfailing–Your grace amazing. Thank You, Lord for holding this marriage in the palm of Your hand while You mold us and form us after Your will.

By Your grace and with Your strength we’re growing, and learning to love. Thank You for that guidance You give us day after day. Thank You for not giving up on us when we feel like giving up on ourselves.

Teach us to work by Your side. Soften our hearts and open our minds that we might love You with every part of our soul, and finally give us the strength and the wisdom to love each other as we do ourselves.

In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. – Mark 12:30-31, KJV
