Marriage Prayer – We’re No Longer Two, But One
Dear Heavenly Father,
Your design for our marriage is that we’re no longer two, but one, and so it’s our desire that day after day we grow closer together.
So many things can pull us apart if we let them. Help us to stand guard, to keep a close watch, and to fight for our marriage. Remind us to nurture the bond that we share by spending time together and communicating our thoughts.
Give us the wisdom to notice when we’re drifting apart, and show us what we can do to fix it.
Don’t allow any thoughts of separation to enter our minds. Even a passing thought of the single life can grow into a habit of unhealthy thinking.
Remind us to make our marriage a priority. May we put each other before our friends, our interests, our families, and our selves.
Help us to dream together, to play together, to pray together, to spend time together, and most importantly to grow strong in faith together.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. – Matthew 19:5-6, KJV
For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate. – Matthew 19:5-6, NIV
