Lord God....I am asking you today to speak to each of the wives and husbands that are on my mind....that may read this blog prayer, and for myself...
And I pray for the marriage that will come --
Lord God, I pray that we will ALL be still to hear your voice and allow YOU to fill our hearts with life and peace.
Lord, I pray that you would give each and every person involved the Spirit of Wisdom and revelation so that each one knows You better.
Lord God, may you be first...not our marriage...not our problems...not our heartache...but YOU -
Lord God, I pray that YOU are at the center - period.
Lord God, may we worship you and not our spouses or problems...
God, I know you desire to walk with me -- but too often we are too busy
to listen and walk slowly with you - God, I pray for each one that
reads this today -- that they will make a point of walking slower and
listening more intently....
Lord God, I pray that each person within their marriage will submit wholeheartedly to YOU the Lord - the living God.
God - that each of these people....individually will put YOU first and
make YOU their first love....and submit to You and your lead and that
YOU may be their highest priority.
Lord, for the ones who are believing the lies ...that this marriage is over or that it can't be saved.....
Lord God, as these couples work
on issues....speak to each other.....and move forward...and as a few of
them learn that YOU can redeem them....I pray peace and joy over their
circumstance...may they find you in the quietness of their thoughts --
and may they STAY there.
Lord God, I pray they will put You first - amen.
PS Lord, for me....there is something on the horizon that only YOU can make sense of. You can redeem it.
Lord, there is a lost one - living on the streets that needs to be SO miserable that she wants to finally come fully to you and not neglect YOUR call on his life .
Lord, there is another still wondering and hurting and he knows You Lord, but he has hardened her heart --
Lord for the church body -- that we carefully LOOK at ourselves in the mirror and do some serious inventory ...."do people want what I have?". Lord, are we being kind and being Jesus to others?
Lord, is there purity? Lord, do they believe they have power?
Lord, for the church body -- moving forward. Lord, that they would see WHERE You are at work and join in.....
Lord, for the events in April ...for the bible/leadership study -- for the traveling and for just tomorrow -- that YOU would be the focus.
In Jesus name, amen.
This morning I was reminded that - GOD wins and HE has a great plan -- HE designed marriage and HE designed it well......HE fully wants everyone to enjoy the fruits and benefits of a healthy marriage - God my desire is that this prayer will encourage just ONE couple -- to persist!
