Marriage Prayer – God Lifts Us Up in Due Time
Dear Heavenly Father,
It’s not the trial itself that makes us strong, it’s You. It’s the intimacy we experience when we trust in Your will, it’s the empowerment of Your Spirit that helps us move on, and it’s Your power at work in a faithful servant.
1 Peter 5:10 tells us that You perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle us. We’re comforted by the words in verse 6 that say, You lift us up in due time. Not in our time, not according to our wisdom, not on our terms… but on Yours.
That’s where we need to grow. That’s how we need to mature as we’re growing together in faith.
Help us to let go of our own agenda and exchange it for Yours. Teach us to be patient when the waiting it tough. Remind us to search Your word daily that we might grow in wisdom and strength.
Teach us to pray.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. To Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. – 1 Peter 5:8-11, KJV
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen. – 1 Peter 5:8-11, NIV
