A Prayer for Your Marriage

This Thanksgiving week I wrote a prayer for our marriage. Jaime and I will continue to pray this each day.

Prayer for Our Marriage

Father, we pray that Christ would be our first love, that through His love He would fill our marriage with His love and empower us to love each other more each day.

Teach us to look to You for security and self-esteem and not to our spouse.

Make our marriage a safe relationship, filling it with openness, honesty, and truth.

Unify each of us with You and with each other.

We pray that the two of us will constantly seek Your presence and power in our marriage.

We pray that You will protect our marriage from evil influences and temptations that can pull us away from each other and from You.

We pray that you use our marriage to touch the lives of others in a positive way, contributing to Your kingdom on earth.

Father, we ask this prayer in the name of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
