Prayer For A Married Couple

Heavenly Father we come before you to thank you for all you have done and continue to do in our lives and marriage. We come before you today, God, asking for a stronger bond of unity in our marriage covenant.

Father we ask that you will give us the ability to be a united front for you letting nothing come between us. Help us, Father to identify and work through anything that is not pleasing to you so we can continually reach higher levels of unity in our marriage spiritually, physically, and mentally.

We are thankful and excited to see the work of your hand as we do our best to seek your face daily. We love you and thank you for all of these things. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen!

Father, we pray that honesty will reign in our marriage. We pray that our words and our actions align and that they always bring honor to you and our marriage. We understand that a deceitful nature is an enemy of our marriage and will only work to destroy what you have created.

Father, we pray that you remove our prideful ways and give us a humble heart. A humbleness that seeks only the betterment of marriage rather than pride that is self-serving.

Father, place a burden in our hearts that we should serve each other with pure hearts. Let us not serve with the intention of receiving anything in return, but out of respect for each other and to answer your call.

Father, just as you show us compassion, we ask that you give us the ability to recognize when each other is in a time of need. We recognize that we are joined as one and we are called to love and support each other in our respective time of need. Give us the words to say and the needed actions to support each other properly.

Father, we humbly pray that you give us love for each other and our marriage. You have placed us in each other's lives to grow, love, and to fulfill your purpose. Help us to see that our successful marriage and our obedience to you depends on our ability to love and show that love.

Father, we pray that you show us how to be appreciative of the efforts of each other. Let us not end the day without telling each other how much we appreciate what they do and who they are to us. Whether their efforts are within the home, at their office, with the kids, or with each other; let us show gratitude to each other.

Lord God, we acknowledge your greatness and our need for your grace in our marriage.

We thank you now for the gift you have given us in each other, this opportunity to love and be
loved completely.

We accept this beautiful challenge and ask you to bless us.

May our love encourage us to grow to be holier individuals, bringing out the best in each other.

Following your example, Jesus, may we be quick to forgive, ready with a healing word or touch.

Teach us to speak to each other with charity and honesty.

Help us avoid the temptation to take each other for granted.

Instead, remind us, day by day, to see each other as you see us.

May we be as patient with each other as you are with us.

May our love be generous, reaching out beyond ourselves to all we meet.

We pray that they may meet you in us.

Let our life together be a light of hope to those who fear that a total commitment is not possible

Faith gives us courage, for we believe that the love that comes from you is freeing and life-giving.

Lord, be a partner with us in our marriage; with your help it will be strong and enduring.

We rejoice that you have brought us together.

May we always be one in you.
