Marriage Prayer – To Be a Light to the Hurting

Dear Heavenly Father,

Your Word tells us that You came that we might have life and that we might have it more abundantly.

As Satan seeks to kill and destroy, so many couples out there are discouraged. So many are struggling to just get along with each other. Many are wrestling with the idea of marriage and wondering why theirs is falling apart.

Some days we feel like that too, Lord. We recognize our failures and our short comings. We see that our words have the power to hurt. We know that our pride stands in the way of our kindness, and we realize that we’re in need of Your strength.

Teach us to be a light to the hurting. To represent the true meaning of marriage so that we might give hope to others. Help us to walk in kindness and grace, to honor our spouse with our words, and to be the strong team you design us to be.

May we be imitators of Christ Who gave up His life for the church as we lay down our lives for each other.

May our marriage be blessed in abundance, and may our light shine for Your glory and honor and praise.

In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. – John 10:10, KJV
