Today’s Marriage Prayer – To Stop Comparing Our Marriage to Others

Marriage Prayer – To Stop Comparing Our Marriage to Others

 

Dear Heavenly Father,

It’s easy to look to the side–to wish, to watch, and to compare other marriages to our own.

What’s not always easy is accepting the fact that we’re two imperfect people growing in grace.

One of the challenges of growing together is that we tend to look for excellence in each other. Some days we expect the kind of perfection that only You can provide, and when we don’t see it, we’re discouraged and left wondering why.

Help us to take our eyes off of other marriages that we compare to our own. Help us to accept each other for who we are, and to celebrate the strengths that we have.

In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s. – Exodus 20:17, KJV

You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbour. – Exodus 20:17, NIV
