Christian Scripture – Marriage Prayer
- compiled by Parry Sequeira
God’s Plan for Marriage is based on Love for one another, because Love covers a multitude of sins (1 Peter 4:8). In Colossians 3:14- God says, beyond all things, put on Love, which is the perfect bond of Unity. In Jeremiah 29: 11, our Great God has promised plans for the success for everyone, and this includes you. Holy Spirit, in the NAME of Jesus, help us to practise the BIG Truths of GOD's divine plan for our marriage.
Father, Son, Holy Spirit - we Love You for the holy gift of our marriage. Dearest Jesus, we ADORE you.
In Genesis 1:27-28 God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth."
In Genesis 2:21-25, The rib that the LORD God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.”
Therefore a man and woman - they shall become one flesh. Thus God instituted marriage, a sacred bond between one man and one woman.
In Mark 10:9 Jesus says, "What God has joined together, let no one separate." Thus Jesus declared that marriage is also a permanent bond.
In Ephesians 4:2-3, God commands us to, "Be completely humble and gentle; Be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace."
In Ephesians 4:32, God watches over us, daily, to, "Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you."
In 1 Corinthians 7:14, God says, The unbelieving husband is made holy through his wife, and the unbelieving wife is made holy through the husband.
In 1 Corinthians 13:4-6, God says,
- Love is patient and Love is kind;
- Love does not envy or boast;
- Love is not arrogant or rude.
- Love does not insist on its own way;
- Love is not irritable or resentful;
- Love does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.
In Matthew 18:20 - Jesus promises, where two (husband and wife) or more are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”. Thus Jesus commands married couples to come before HIM in prayer and live in HIS presence, moment by moment.
In Matthew 18:19 - Jesus ultimately tells both - husband and wife that - I tell you the truth, if two of you (husband and wife to hold their hands together) agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.
This is a great promise of God. What God tells he will do for us, he will do. Accept this in faith - in the NAME of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit - AMEN.
Say to your spouse - I Love you in Jesus our Lord.
