Prayer for My Marriage

Prayer for My Marriage: Marriage is the union of a man and a woman as husband and wife. This is a union made of different entities so it requires lots of understanding to stay together. God established marriage so it needs God to be what it is meant to be.

Prayers for my marriage

“For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church” (Ephesians 5:31-32).

Fulfilling the Will of God: Father, I lift up my marriage before you. Make my marriage a unique reflection of your design for marriage.

“Ephesians 4:2-3: “With all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”

Peace: Lord, I pray your peace that surpasses all human understanding will reign and rule in our home. Help my spouse and me to always seek to be peaceful in every situation. Help us create an environment where you love to dwell.

Help us to make being committed to each other a lifestyle and not a burden. Help us communicate with each other with love and respect and help us to carry out our responsibilities to each other without any resentment.

Divine Presence: Lord, let Your presence reside in my marriage.  Make my home an embassy where you can be encountered in Jesus’ name.

Children: Help us guide our children in your path, let them walk in the footsteps you’ve laid down for them in life, and help them serve you and you alone.

Prov 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Relationship with you: after all said and done, our relationship with you is the most important thing. Take us deeper in love with you. Help us love you more and more each day and help us build a strong relationship with you. Take away every form of lukewarmness from us and help us to always long for intimacy with you and let us always be on fire for you.

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. 1 pet 5:6-7
