Freedom. Truth. Marriage.

Scripture prayer for marriage

Here’s a prayer you and your spouse can pray over your marriage:

“You have called us to be one (Gen. 2:24) How good and pleasant it is when a brother and sister live together in unity (Psalm 133:1). Use both of us to draw the other towards holiness (Eph. 5:26).  May we always lead a blameless life before you (Psalm 101:2).

Enable us to do something that’s difficult: submit to one another out of reverence for Christ, giving ourselves up for one another, out of love for each other (Eph 5:21; Col. 3:18-19). Show us how to feed and care for each other as the other one needs (Eph 5:29). Let us rejoice in each other (Prov. 5:18). Let us love one another in a way that our love burns like a mighty flame – a flame that cannot be quenched or washed away (SoS 8:7).

Remind both of us that we are each others’ (SoS 2:16). Let us desire only each other (SoS 7:10). We confess we are not independent of each other (1Cor. 11:11), no do we belong to ourselves, but to each other (1Cor 7:4). May we always fulfill our marital duties to each other, whatever those duties may be (1Cor 7:3).

May you give us the desires of our hearts, and make all our plans succeed (Psalm 20:4). We consecrate our marriage as a whole, that our marriage be honored, and our marriage bed be kept pure (Heb. 13:4).”
