Prayer to Stengthen Our Marriage

by Ebony Only (Chicago, IL)

Lord we come with bow down heads but not bowed out hearts asking for a fresh annointing upon marriage God. Remind us our God that you have ordained this union and it and our mate requires of us the same grace and mercy you generously provide us daily.

Remind us that it is on your word that we stand boldly God knowing that LOVE bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things and endures all things. Because we know God you never put more on us than we can bear, we not only hope, but believe, that you will remain faithful to us and that we must remain faithful to you and to one another.

Lord we know that you’ve been blessing us, so peel away the scales of hurt and anger from our eyes so that we might find the sympathy, compassion, humility, faithfulness, honesty, respect and most of all love that already resides within us. Your word reminds us that the greatest of these is love.

Place a constant reminder before us God that the greatest of these that you give to us and you’ve commanded we give to each other is LOVE.

Lord, we give you honor and praise that no weapon formed against our marriage has prospered and give you premature praise that you will silence anyone attempting to tear down what have built up, even if that means you will silence our own tongues until we can see clearly what you have placed upon our hearts. We believe the Holy Spirit is ministering to our hearts and providing conviction and correction of our thoughts, words and actions.

We rebuke right now any wedge attempting to be forged between us and believe the Holy Spriit is working against deception, ungodly advice, our personal demons and the weakness of flesh. He is dismissing our bitterness, wrath, anger, malice and fears. He is banishing our dooubts, discrouagement and defeat. He strengthening our courage, resolve, trust, unity, commitment to one another and commitment to you.

We bless your name in knowledge that the Holdy Spirit is strengthening our full armor of God so that we might continue to do your work, your will and walk in your way knowing that the wages of sin is (emotional and spiritual) death. It is your will that we live. It is your will that this marriage be for a lifetime and we will not dishonor your by allowing (wo)man to put asunder.

We ask our God that you place and strengthen the hedge of protection around our marriage and our home. In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost this is thy servants prayer. Amen
