Lord, give us both a spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that we may know You better (Ephesians 1:17), and give us a deeper understanding of Your Word as we seek to live by It's guidance.
Give us direction for our family. May we increase in favor and and protection at work and home. May we reach our full potential as Children of God. Provide for our marital, emotional, physical, and spiritual needs. Protect our family from the fiery darts of the evil one. Help us to be the parents and grandparents you intended us to be, May the light of Jesus Christ shine from us and may we be a blessing to all we know and meet.

The Value of a Friend (Our Spouse) & Jesus Christ
Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor.
For if they fall, one will lift up his companion.
But woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he has no one to help him up.
Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm;
But how can one be warm alone?
Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him.
And a Threefold Cord (Our vision of us in our human marriage, and Jesus Christ with us,through prayer for our Marriage with us being his Bride) is NOT quickly broken.
Ecclesiastes 4; 9-12
It's Going To Be Worth It All
Take The First Step
Prayer For Our Marriage-Taking the First Step
Lord, Jesus Christ, I pray that You help me to be a good husband/wife. I know that I do not have what it takes to do that without Your help.
I pray that You to take my impatience, selfishness, irritability, and turn them into long-suffering, kindness, patience and to have the willingness to bear all things.
1 Peter 5:7, Amplified Version says, Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.
So therefore, I cast to You my old emotional habits, mindsets, automatic reactions, prideful, rude assumptions, and self protective ways.I ask instead that You give me, Your Fruits of The Holy Spirit at work in our marriage. such as kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self control. Take the hardness of my heart, and break down the walls with Your revelation of areas I may need to change. Give me a new heart, Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right, persevering, and steadfast spirit within me Psalm 51:10. Work in me your love, peace, and joy. Galatians 5:22-23
I admit that I cannot be, on my own, any better than I am at this moment. Only You and The Power of Your Love can transform me, my spouse, and this marriage.
I ask that Your Holy Spirit reveal to me where there is sin in my heart, especially in regard to my spouse. Help me to forgive the way you do- totally, completely, no turning back. Matthew 16:12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven (left, remitted, and let go of the debts, and have given up resentment against) our debtors. Colossians 3:13 Make allowance for each other's faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.
I admit to and ask for forgiveness, for the times I've been critical, resentful, bitter,angry, unforgiving, distant, unloving, and disrespectful.
Help me to put aside hurt,disappointment, and self pity. I pray that You make me a tool of reconciliation, peace, and healing in our marriage. Help us to communicate well and live in unity together. I pray that you help me to be my spouse's helpmate, companion, champion, friend, support. I pray that You help me to create a peaceful, restful, safe place in our home. Help me to become rich in mind, soul, and spirit. Make me the kind of spouse he/she can appreciate having as a part of their life.
I lay all my expectations at Your feet, Lord Jesus Christ.I release my spouse from the burden of fulfilling me in areas where I should be looking to You. I pray You help me to accept my spouse for who they are. I realize that in some ways my spouse may never change, and at the same time, I know Your Holy Spirit can make changes I didn't even know were coming. I know that what The Holy Spirit does is forever.So therefore, I leave any changing that needs to be done in Your hands, fully accepting that neither one of us is perfect. Only You, Lord Jesus Christ, are perfect and I look to You to perfect us.
In Jesus Christs Name I pray, Amen.
Love Never Fails
How Love Sees
How Love Wins
Do I Really Know How to Love Correctly?
1 Corinthians 13 The Love Chapter
If I [can] speak in the tongues of men and [even] of angels, but have not love (that reasoning, intentional, spiritual devotion such as is inspired by God’s love for and in us), I am only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
2 And if I have prophetic powers the gift of interpreting the divine will and purpose), and understand all the secret truths and mysteries and possess all knowledge, and if I have [sufficient] faith so that I can remove mountains, but have not love (God’s love in me) I am nothing (a useless nobody).
3 Even if I dole out all that I have [to the poor in providing] food, and if I surrender my body to be burned or in order that I may glory, but have not love (God’s love in me), I gain nothing.
4 Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily.
5 It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong].
6 It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail.
7 Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening].
8 Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end]. As for prophecy (the gift of interpreting the divine will and purpose), it will be fulfilled and pass away; as for tongues, they will be destroyed and cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away [it will lose its value and be superseded by truth].
9 For our knowledge is fragmentary (incomplete and imperfect), and our prophecy (our teaching) is fragmentary (incomplete and imperfect).
10 But when the complete and perfect (total) comes, the incomplete and imperfect will vanish away (become antiquated, void, and superseded).
11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; now that I have become a man, I am done with childish ways and have put them aside.
12 For now we are looking in a mirror that gives only a dim (blurred) reflection [of reality as in a riddle or enigma], but then [when perfection comes] we shall see in reality and face to face! Now I know in part (imperfectly), but then I shall know and understand fully and clearly, even in the same manner as I have been fully and clearly known and understood by God].
13 And so faith, hope, love abide [faith—conviction and belief respecting man’s relation to God and divine things; hope—joyful and confident expectation of eternal salvation; love—true affection for God and man, growing out of God’s love for and in us], these three; but the greatest of these is love.
You might read "The Love Chapter" and find that you may need help in some or all of these ways to love correctly. (As we readily admit we have needed the reminder at troubling times) You can pray for help to not love in a way that is easily provoked, ask to not be self seeking, ask to be patient, kind, and so on. Love, not in the false ways the world portray love. But, with true, genuine love, we should love one another. With a sacrificial love. Putting others before our selves. No seed sown with motives of REAL LOVE, will be lost. Galatians 6:9-10. Never lose faith in Our Fathers perfect plan. No matter what. Why? Remember these three things: LOVE NEVER FAILS, 1 Corinthians 13:8 God has a perfect plan for our lives, Jeremiah 29:11, and faith is hope in things not seen, Hebrews 11:1. After all we who are no longer living under the law, are told, by Jesus Christ. He said that we should love one another as He loves us. John 13:34 Also, Luke 10:25-37 sums up the whole of the law by love.
