MARRIAGE PRAYERS - TWO FOR ONE DUO - FRIENDSHIPS & SPIRITUAL GROWTH

Image
PROVERBS 27:17
“Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.”

Lord we thank You for our friendship. We are so grateful to have each other to enjoy and share life with. I pray that we never take our bond for granted. We ask that You protect our union. We also ask that You would surround us with others who are seeking to build Your kingdom. We know that iron sharpens iron and we ask that You bring friends into our lives who will challenge us to grow, boldly speak truth into our lives, and seek Your wisdom on our behalf. Grant us the opportunities to serve others in this same way. We know that friendship is a gift and we ask that You help us to nurture, cherish, and protect those That You place in our paths.

COLOSSIANS 1:9-10
“From the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good w…

MARRIAGE PRAYERS - DAY 14 - OUR WORDS

Image
PROVERBS 18:21 "Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.”
Lord, we are completely humbled when we think about the grandness of Your kingdom and the gifts You have chosen to give us. Of all the ways You could have given us to communicate, You chose to give man words. We are especially grateful for this gift. Unfortunately, we acknowledge that we do not always treat our words as a gift and we are well aware of the damage our tongues can cause. Your Word tells us that our words are powerful and that our tongues have the ability to give life or to destroy it. Teach us to use our words to give life. Help us to keep quiet when we need to and to speak in love and gentleness when necessary. We desire that every part of our bodies be used as a vessel for Your glory and a testimony of Your goodness. Forgive us when we do not honor You with the things we say. We pray that You make our words gracious like a honeycomb that brings sweetness to the…

MARRIAGE PRAYERS - DAY 13 - FINANCES

Image
HEBREWS 13:5 "Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you."
Lord we seek to put You first in every area of our lives, including our finances. We are grateful for Your provision and the resources You have blessed us with. We ask that You use our finances as a source to bring us closer to You and not as a means of dissention or conflict. Help us to be of one mind with what we spend, how we save and how we give according to Your commands and desires. We do not cherish the treasures of this world but we seek Your eternal blessings. Help us not to rely on Your resources but to trust You as our only Source.  Your Word tells us that You will supply all of our needs and we trust You for provision even when we do not see it.  Help us to be content and faithful with our finances. We relinquish our control and selfish desires and come together under Your authority. Use everything that we have for Your…

MARRIAGE PRAYERS - DAY 12 - SPEAK TO US

Image
Luke 11:28 He said, ‘Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and keep it!’
Father, we desire to hear Your voice and to follow Your ways. We pray that You would speak to us so that Your will, will be done through us. We seek You wholeheartedly, selflessly, and continually. Help us to recognize Your voice at all times and give us the courage we need to act on Your behalf. The busyness of life can get loud and there are distractions all around us. We know that it is the goal of the enemy to tempt us with the temporary pleasures of this world. Help us to stand together under You. Give us wisdom to know when to quiet the noise around us in order to hear You clearly. Grant us the patience to wait for You to speak when we are seeking Your voice. Help us to be confident as You guide our actions. Teach us to abide in Your presence, and most of all teach us to rest in the security of Your promises. 




MARRIAGE PRAYERS - DAY 11 - INTIMACY

Image
GENESIS 2:24
“Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.”
Lord Jesus, we thank You that You have given us to each other in marriage and we pray that Your plan for us to be one flesh would be expressed in every area of life. Starting with our vows and commitments to each other, we pray for purity. We pray that we would honor each other completely and that we would put each other’s needs in front of our own. Lord, grow a trust relationship between us that would be unbreakable. We pray that when others look at us they would see You in us and a closeness in our union that doesn’t come from the world. Reveal any false intimacy in our relationship and replace it with exactly what You had in mind when You created us for each other. 
[Husband]  Father, help me to love my wife like You love me and to give up even my life if You call me to do so. Until then, help me to die to any selfish way that would keep my wife from tru…

MARRIAGE PRAYERS - DAY 10 - PRAYER AGAINST INSECURITY

Image
PHILIPPIANS 4:6-9
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding,  will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me— practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.” Lord Jesus, the enemy wants nothing more than to create insecurities in our marriage. He wants to break down our trust and he wants to create doubt in our minds about our love and commitment to each other. He wants to erode our confidence in each other, making us feel weak and alone. But Father, we do not stand confident in our own ability to love or even with total de…

MARRIAGE PRAYERS - DAY 9 - USE US

Image
JOHN 15:16
“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.”
Lord Jesus, help us to abide in You individually and to immerse our marriage in Your Word. Use our relationship for Your glory and for our good. We are grateful that You have chosen to love us and that You thought it right to bring us together for Your purposes. Help us to spend time together with You, abiding and hanging out in Your Word on a regular basis, that we would grow richness in our marriage that would be irresistible to those around us. Grow our union into a tree of life that would give others nourishment and delight that can only come from You and points back to You as its source. We pray for all those who are touched by our marriage, that in Your grace You would use us to leave a lasting impression on them and that ultimately they would grow in relationship with You…
