When We’re Afraid of Sharing Our Hearts –
Today’s Marriage Prayer
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for Your plan of salvation. That even though we are born into a fallen world, we are born again through a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead (1 Peter 1:3).
Throughout scripture, we’re reminded to leave sin behind and to flee the appearance of evil. To die to ourselves and live to Christ. To be transformed into His image and likeness. We know that the Holy Spirit is grieved each time we step into sin. Grieved each time we try to minimize sin. Grieved by the sin that sent our Lord to the Cross.
And so, we ask for your help Lord as we seek to walk blameless before you.
Help us to be open and honest about the struggles we have so that we might encourage each other without shame or judgment. Give us the courage to open up, when we’re afraid of sharing our hearts. And when we do, Lord, grant us the wisdom to help, and the compassion to listen intently. Help us to be accepting and kind, when we’re faced with opinions we might not always agree with. Help us to be gracious and understanding like You.
In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
