Cindy and I consider it a privilege to be invited into your marriages every week through these Marriage Messages. We are always seeking God as to what we should share with you from week to week. Thankfully, God has been faithful to guide us. So, at this time, as we celebrate the resurrection of Christ, we want to offer the following prayer of blessing for you and your marriage:
A Blessing for Your Marriage:
Father in heaven, first, we want to thank you for the gift of eternal life you have given to all who call on the name of Jesus, whose resurrection we celebrate. And I want to thank you for personally working in Cindy and my marriage to redeem and resurrect what once was “dead.” And now you allow us to participate with You in this ministry as it touches thousands of marriages every week.
It is in the name and the authority of Jesus that we ask you to bless each husband and wife who reads this message. Grant us the wisdom and insight we need to live in our marriages every day. We want to live in such a way it that brings glory to Your Name. And as a result, may it strengthen our relationship with each other.
Jesus, we also ask that You “open the eyes of our hearts.” We want to see You at work in our lives and in our marriages. Help us to recognize the times when we are not treating each other the way that You would have us. Convict us of sinful attitudes, and actions. We ask this so that we can repent and ask for your forgiveness. Please give us the strength to seek and to give forgiveness from each other whenever it’s needed. We know that as we do this, we are doing this “as unto the Lord.”
We pray for those who are hurting.
Lord, we know there are couples and individual spouses who are hurting deeply in their marriages. We would ask that You comfort and guide those people. Help them to find their hope and strength in You to bring about the changes that are necessary to heal whatever marital “wounds” that may exist today. “As far as it depends on us”, help us to live at peace with our spouse. As a result, may we bring honor to Your name.
And, Lord God, as the creator and author of marriage, please help us to keep our eyes on You and Your Word for guidance. May we turn from the world’s idea and model for marriage. And may we be a living witness to others that it is You, and You alone, who has the “perfect plan” for living as husband and wife. May we not fall into the temptation to “mingle” the “world’s ways” with Your ways, as you tell us in Colossians 3:2.
And finally, Father, as we pray for Your blessing on us today, we commit our lives and marriages to You according to what is written in 1 John 3:18: “Let us not love [merely] with words or tongue but with actions and truth.”
We thank You this day for hearing our prayer. May Your perfect will be done! In Jesus Name we pray this, Amen.
Below is another prayer we dedicate to you and to our own marriage. It’s written by John Waller and is titled, “The Marriage Prayer.”
Concerning prayer, and celebrating Christ together, it is important as we approach Resurrection Sunday, to remember that:
Only a few received Jesus Christ when He first came to this earth…
BUT THE CELEBRATION WILL BE DEAFENING WHEN HE RETURNS!
We are rejoicing with you because Jesus came…
He was resurrected…
And He is coming again!
We Pray God’s Resurrection Blessing on You for Your Marriage,
Steve and Cindy Wright
