Marriage Prayer – Teach Us to Follow Your Lead
Dear Heavenly Father,
Please help us to resolve conflict with wisdom and love. We don’t have to be right when we serve a God who able to to soften a heart. We don’t have to win when we serve a God Who rewards those who faithfully serve Him.
But the leaning and learning doesn’t always come easy.
When we’re angry, frustrated, or hurt, remind to stop right where we are and to pray for each other. May we also pray for ourselves that we would be temperate, loving and kind.
We need to stop keeping score. It really doesn’t matter who apologized last. What matters the most is that we’re looking to You for an example of compassion and grace. Teach us to follow Your lead.
Grant us humility, Lord. To look at things from another perspective, and to do our best to understand.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: and be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you. – Ephesians 4:31-32, KJV
Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. – Ephesians 4:31-32, NIV
