Not To Desire The Things Of Others

Not To Desire The Things Of Others – Today’s
Marriage Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,

It’s tempting to sometimes look to the side — to wish, to watch, and to compare other marriages to our own. In doing this we fool ourselves into believing other marriages are perfect while ours has its flaws.

Help us not to be critical of our own marriage by measuring ourselves by the standards of this world. But rather to be patient, to have a heart of kindness and compassion toward each other. Help us not to desire the things of others, but to accept each other for who we are, and to celebrate what You have given us.

In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.

Today’s Bible Verse

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
