To Build Christ-Centered Friendships –
Today’s Marriage Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,

Chapter Twenty-Seven of Proverbs talks about one person’s ability to sharpen another. If we ever hope to inspire people we know, we need to strengthen the relationships that we have, and we need to build new ones if we hope to reach out.

Friendships are always built on encouragement. It gives us the opportunity to have wise discussions, where we listen and learn from each other.

Friendship is a powerful influence. We can’t help but be affected by a person’s life when we admire and spend time with them. And so we need to be in the Word, and to be walking in Your will if we hope to draw others to Christ.

We need sharpening too, Lord. Help us to build Christ-centered friendships. Bring strong couples into our home, where they can shine the light of life and truth into our hearts. Let them show us what a strong marriage should look like, and may we also show them by the way that we love.

Help us to provoke a strong faith and good character in each other, that we might bring glory and honor to You.

In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
