For his marriage
Lord, You have said, 'Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil;' (Ecclesiastics 4:9) may we work together to make our marriage a good work - and a good reward. Let us together pursue what makes for peace in our home and for mutually building each other up rather than tearing down (Romans 14:19). I pray we can find a place of prayer together. I believe a couple who prays together can not help but remain close and stay together. May we confess our faults one to another, and pray for one another, that we may be healed physically, emotionally, spiritually for the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much (James 5:16).
Jesus gave us the example of how to love so let us love one another like Jesus loved; for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God (1 John 4:7). I pray my husband will love me with affection and sympathy and is not harsh or bitter or resentful toward me (Colossians 3:19). And I pray my husband loves me as Christ loves his Church and gave himself for it (Ephesians 5:25) and that he live - and love - joyfully with me all the days of the life He has given him under the sun (Ecclesiastes 9:9). May my husband's love endure in our marriage for love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. (1 Corinthians 13:7-8). May You, O Lord, make our love increase and overflow for each other (1 Thessalonians 3:12). May my husband love me as himself, and may I see to it that I respect my husband (Ephesians 5:33).
I pray we submit to one another out of reverence for Christ, counting each other more highly than ourselves and look to the interests of each other rather than ourselves (Ephesians 5:21; Philippians 2:3-4). Let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting one another...but encouraging each other (Hebrews 10:24-25). May there be peace within the walls of our home (Psalms 122:7). I pray when we open our mouths there is wisdom and kindness is on our lips (Proverbs 31:26). We live to follow your example of service and be a house that serves the Lord (Joshua 24:15). Before we can be of good service to others I pray we do not neglect each other in our own home.
Above all, I pray we guard our hearts for everything we will do flows from it (Proverbs 4:23). In Jesus' Name.
