MARRIAGE PRAYERS - TWO FOR ONE DUO - FRIENDSHIPS & SPIRITUAL GROWTH
“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.
“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 work and increasing in
the knowledge of God.”
Heavenly Father, thank You that You have opened our eyes to see Your majesty and glory. We praise You for choosing us to be a part of Your kingdom family. We pray that You would continue to reveal Yourself to us in the fullness of Your grace and mercy. Help us to be like-minded in our pursuit of You, that we might, together, grasp the width, length, and height of Your love for us individually and within our marriage. We seek You for wisdom in our daily lives, turning to You in every decision, great or small. We ask that You would help us to live in a way that is consistent with Your Word and the calling You have for our lives. May we please You in all that we do, always seeking what delights You, putting our desires to the side if they don’t agree. And finally, as we grow in our affection and love for You, may all that we do bring about Your goodness and glory in the lives of others around us, that we would be conduits of Your truth and love to a culture around us that knows nothing of Your goodness.
