Seek The Well-Being of Others – Today’s Marriage Prayer
Dear Heavenly Father,
The absence of moderation isn’t good for the body, it’s not good for the soul, and it isn’t good for our marriage.
When we eat too much we suffer from weight gain, and when we spend too much we suffer the consequences of debt. When we sleep too much we don’t get anything done, and when we spend too much time on the internet we take from the time that we could be spending together. When we’re focused too much on this world, we lose focus on You.
Moderation is key. The question is, do we use it enough?
In first Corinthians chapter 10, Paul said that all things are lawful to him, but that they’re not all beneficial. Although he was talking about meat offered to idols, the wisdom holds true when it comes to the everyday choices we make. He also went on to say that we should seek the well-being of others instead of ourselves.
And so we ask that You help us to be self-controlled in all things. Teach us to seek those things that will benefit others for Your glory. Remind us to pull back when we need to, and sacrifice where we should.
In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
