Don’t forget to listen to today’s 5-Minute Marriage Podcast from 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 – “Learning to Love“
Marriage Prayer – Learning to Love
Dear Heavenly Father,
Love is holding your tongue when you’re angry, and stopping yourself when you’re about to say something you shouldn’t. It’s looking past imperfection to the find the good in your spouse. It’s patience.
Love is letting go of the small stuff as you hope and pray for the best in each other. It’s being strong when the other is weak. It’s a kind word on a tough day.
Love doesn’t give up because marriage is hard. It stands firm in the eye of a storm.
Love steps down so the other can shine. It’s more concerned about winning one’s heart than it is about winning an argument. It’s humble yet strong. It’s gives more than it’s given, and forgives before it’s forgiven.
Are we doing this, Lord? Are we loving the way that we should? Or could it be that we’re giving up too quickly, giving in to our pride, and giving less than we should?
Examine our hearts and help us to grow. Give us the strength to move pride aside, and bring love to the forefront.
Teach us how to love the way we’re supposed to be loving. Help us to grow in Your will as we’re growing together and learning to love.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. – 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, KJV
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. – 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, NIV
