“Therefore, a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” Genesis 2:24
CONSIDER: Marriage is in crisis today. There are many reasons for this, but the real problem is a spiritual one that’s brought on by sin in our hearts. It’s important that we get back to God’s covenantal purpose of marriage found in His Word. He designed marriage as a sacred and a joyous covenant. He gave it as a gift to show the full expression of love between a man and a woman. It should always be honored and never taken lightly. Let’s commit to pray for marriages.
PRAY: Jesus, today we pray that Your plan for marriage would be clearly displayed through our lives. We pray that we would honor our marriages completely. We pray for open communication and to have the wisdom to listen when it would be easier to speak. We pray for humility to say I’m sorry. We pray for the graciousness to forgive like You forgave us. We pray for You, Jesus, to be the center of our marriages and that when the world looks at us, they see You. Help us to love each other like You have loved us. Amen.
