Marriage Prayer – We’re Choosing to Serve
Dear Heavenly Father,
We’re choosing to serve. In serving You we know that we must turn our back on evil. We have to walk away from temptation. We have to lay down our lives to carry our cross.
Help us to put away distractions that keep us from You. Help us to realize sin before it consumes us.
We’ve sinned. We stumbled. We’ve taken our eyes off of You. And still You call us Your servants and friends.
It’s one thing to offer you lip service, it’s another to live in sincerity and truth. Give us pure hearts and an earnest desire to walk in Your will.
Open our eyes to the opportunities around us, that we might be Your hands and feet in this world.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake the Lord, to serve other gods; For the Lord our God, he it is that brought us up and our fathers out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and which did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way wherein we went, and among all the people through whom we passed. – Joshua 24:15-17, KJV
But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household,we will serve the Lord.”
Then the people answered, “Far be it from us to forsake the Lord to serve other gods!17 It was the Lord our God himself who brought us and our parents up out of Egypt, from that land of slavery, and performed those great signs before our eyes. He protected us on our entire journey and among all the nations through which we traveled. – Joshua 24:15-17, NIV
