Marriage Prayer – To Form a Covenant With Our Eyes

Dear Heavenly Father,

You’ve given us this beautiful gift of marriage, the incredible gift of a partner and friend, and the most intimate gift of a lover.

We want to protect these gifts, Lord. Help us to honor our marriage bed, protect our friendship and keep our relationship safe from temptation.

Job once said, “I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid?” (Job 31:1)

He understood the power of sexual temptation, and he was fiercely protecting his heart.

May we take that same pledge when it comes to our own eyes.

Let us form a covenant with You today, that we will turn our eyes away from sexual temptation. And that we will step away from relationships, both emotional and physical the moment they threaten our marriage.

In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: but every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

Do not err, my beloved brethren. – James 1:12-16, KJV

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.

When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.

Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. – James 1:12-16, NIV
