Today’s Marriage Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,

Communication is vital to a strong marriage — and so, Lord, we ask that You teach us to communicate well. Give us hearts of understanding, compassion, and love. Help us to listen more than we talk.

Your Word tells us that harsh words stir up anger and that a soft answer turns away wrath. Help us to remember this when we’re frustrated, angry, and hurt.

May we be determined to act according to Your will — to think before we speak and to choose words that edify one another.

May our words minister grace to each other, and above all may they glorify You.

In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.

A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger. The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness. – Proverbs 15:1-2, KJV
