Marriage Prayer – To Let Go of Expectations
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for this wonderful gift of marriage, and the opportunity that You have given us to be both lovers and friends.
We ask that You would guide and equip us to fulfill our roles as husband and wife. As we’re growing in grace, teach us the best ways to support and encourage each other.
There will be days when we don’t measure up to the expectations we hold, and so we ask that You help us to let go of those expectations and wisely choose love.
Let our eyes be constantly turned toward You, as we focus more on changing ourselves, and less on changing each other.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?
The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother’s eye. – Luke 6:39-42, KJV
He also told them this parable: “Can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into a pit? The student is not above the teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher.
“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. – Luke 6:39-42, NIV
