Marriage Prayer – To Stand Strong Through the Years
Dear Heavenly Father,
We don’t want our love to go stale. We don’t want it to wane, wither, or fade. We want to be an old couple that walks hand in hand through the years. We want to be friends that smile and laugh together long into retirement.
We want our marriage to thrive as long as we both shall live, but we’re in need Your strength.
Like gold we’re refined, purified by the fire, each time our marriage is tested and tried. And it hurts some days, when it feels like we’re at opposite ends of the spectrum. When pride, impatience, and self-righteousness creep into our marriage, give us the wisdom and power to stand up against it.
Help us to reconcile our differences quickly. And help us to let go of the lies that lead us to sin.
Should sickness and poverty be a part of future, give us the faith to walk through it together.
Help us to be a couple that doesn’t give up. Help us to stand strong, whatever may come.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; – Hebrews 12:14-15, KJV
Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. 15 See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many. – Hebrews 12:14-15, NIV
