He is Risen! . . . He is Risen, Indeed!
These are familiar words that we recite in our churches on Resurrection Easter Sunday. If we stop to really consider them, they carry such power for change in every aspect of our lives. Easter is also such a joyous time to celebrate “all things new.”
But Cindy and I (Steve) are also aware there are many who, though they love Jesus and believe in His resurrection, are barely hanging on by a thread due to circumstances beyond their control. You are praying for a resurrection miracle in your own life and marriage today. If that’s you, here is a resurrection prayer for you:
A Resurrection Prayer for Your Marriage
Heavenly Father, as I come to you this Easter, first I praise and thank You for the sacrifice of your Son so that I can have eternal life with You. And it’s because of Jesus having power over death that I come to You through Him to ask you to perform another miracle – to resurrect my marriage.
I confess that sometimes I am weak and struggle in my faith. This is because I have been praying for so long and have not seen any changes. You know my heart’s desire is to have a marriage where we BOTH love and serve you. I desire that we BOTH bring glory to you through our lives as we draw closer to You as husband and wife.
Show me; teach me Your ways through Your Word what I need to do to pave the way for healing and restoration. One of my prayers will be that “I will be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord.” (1 Corinthians 15:58) I also pray I will not become “weary in well doing” because I know “at the proper time I will reap a harvest if I do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9)
Finally, today is a new day because I stand on the hope of the power of Your resurrection. If You conquered death then You can conquer the circumstances in my marriage that got us to where we are today. I join with the psalmist who said:
“We wait in hope for the Lord. He is our help and our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His holy name. May Your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in you.” (Psalm 33:20-22), NIV
…In Jesus Name, A-men.
