8 Prayers for your Marriage

A marriage is a spiritual union in the eyes of God. It is two people who have decided to leave a piece of them behind and join together in holy matrimony for as long as they shall live.

Marriage comes with a lot of uncertainties. The road of marriage is not a straight one. There are winding roads, strong winds, terrible weather, and very low visibility on the journey of marriage. There are people who do not survive the challenges and difficulties of marriage and end up breaking the contract.

People enter into marriage for all sorts of reasons. Some enter to gain, others enter because they are tired of being alone and others do it because that is what society demands. These prayers for your marriage are purposed to renew your strength each day during your lifelong commitment.

Ephesians 5:25 entreats husbands to love their wives the way Christ loves the church. Christ is the center of the church and his sacrifice means that everyone no matter who they are or where they come from is loved by him once they accept him.

Christ’s love for us is unconditional and sacrificial. He bore our sins and was sacrificed to death so that we would live without blame. A marriage is a sacrifice of your life for somebody. To live together and share your body, mind, money, strength, patience, and future with somebody. Just like the church, Christ should be the center of your marriage.

He should be the reason for every decision you make. He should be your leader, your comforter, your protector, your mentor, your provider, your healer, and your mediator. Let Christ in your marriage. Seek God’s divine presence every day and let the Holy Spirit take control of your marriage.
