Praying for Your Marriage

Wednesday, August 24, 2016

Getting married was a bit of a reality check for me (I wrote about that HERE.) As a newlywed, I took my complaints and whining to a wise friend and she recommended that I read the Power of the Praying Wife and that the best advice from that book was to shut up and pray. A lot easier said than done but I decided to give it a try. I needed a place to start so I looked up every verse in my Bible’s concordance that mentioned wives, love, and marriage. Then I created this list to pray over my marriage.

-Be one.
Genesis 2:24

-Honor my marriage bed and be faithful to my husband.
Hebrews 13:4

-Know the enemy of our unity, not each other but the devil.
1 Peter 5:8-9

-Rejoice in each other.
Proverbs 5:18

-Use my actions instead of words. Be free from Fear.
1 Peter 3:1-6

-Do not nag.
Proverbs 27:15

1 Corinthians 13

-Work Hard and take care of home & children.
Proverbs 31

-Give my body freely.
1 Corinthians 7:3-5

-Be excellent.
Proverbs 12:4

-Submit as I do to Christ.
Ephesians 5:22-24

-Respect my husband.
Ephesians 5:33
1 Peter 3:1-6

-For This Life.
Romans 7:2
1 Corinthians 7:10
Matthew 22:30

I can honestly say that God has answered so many of these prayers for my marriage, that I forgot to keep praying for them. I recently found the original page I made with this list of verses and it reminded me that I need to keep praying for my marriage and my husband. Hopefully this can be an encouraging list for you as well. 

Maybe grab some friends together and make fun bookmarks for your Bibles with these verses on it as a reminder to keep praying for your marriage. It might spark some great conversations! I know it did for me and my friends.
