Teach Us To Be A Living Sacrifice – Today’s Marriage Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,  

When people ask us what it means to be saved, help us to point them straight to the cross. Good news that’s abounding in truth. Encouragement that’s seasoned with grace.  

And while we point them to the cross, may we also be carrying ours. 

If we’re fighting, if we’re divided, or if we’re disrespectful in any way, remind us of the crucified lives we desire to live. We don’t want to live for ourselves, Lord, we want a marriage that is pleasing to You. Two people who give without taking. Vows that we’re never forsaking.  

Lead the way, Lord. Teach us how to reflect the covenant-keeping love of our Savior Who gave Himself up for the church.  

As we endeavor to serve, we ask for Your strength and Your wisdom to guide us. Teach us to be a living sacrifice, Lord. Teach us to give, help us to love, remind us to serve. 

In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.

Bible Verse of the Day 

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Romans 12:1-2, KJV) 

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Romans 12:1-2, NIV)

Our Featured Book

This delightful and inspiring journal takes you on an exploration through the book of Hebrews. Insight, encouragement, and thought-provoking questions motivate you to dig deeper into scripture and hold fast to your faith. The words “better,” “greater,” and “more” appear frequently throughout Hebrews as the author sets out to show the reader that Christ is better than the angels, higher than the priests, and greater than any Old Testament prophet. The new covenant through the blood of Jesus Christ is superior in every way to that under the Levitical law. This literary masterpiece encourages us to grow, to press on in the face of affliction, and to grab hold of the gospel which we have been taught. From front to back, it explains who Christ is, what He’s done, and why He’s the only way to salvation.
