We need Your love to build a marriage that will last. Teach us, Oh lord, what real love looks and feels like. Give us the strong assurance that true love does what is right even when we don’t feel loving. It takes great strength of character to act lovingly toward someone when they are hard to love, Lord. Give us your strength to do what is right so that all glory will go to You.
Lord, thank you that we don’t have to be afraid when we no longer feel “in love.” Your love is greater than feelings and you will help us persevere until those feelings return. Thank you that as we obey Your word and put our trust in You, You will enable us to walk in joy in spite of our circumstances.
We don’t always believe that you will answer our prayers. Help us in our unbelief, Lord and keep us steadfast and sure, abounding in good works even in our marriages.
We love you Lord. You are the Author of love. You established the marriage covenant to glorify Yourself through the generations. We will trust You to be the strength in our weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9).
In Your name we pray,
