Marriage between a man and a woman are under attack today like never before, the stronger your faith, the harder the lawless one and his minions work to rip you apart. Ecclesiastes 4:12 - a cord of three strands cannot be broken - that is God, You, and your Wife. This is a prayer I put together to help focus US with GODS promises.
Father God, we come before you in the mighty name of Jesus Christ and declare that your word which says that supplications, prayers, intercessions and giving of thanks be made for all me, for kings and all who are in authority, so we may lead quiet and peaceful lives in all godliness and reverence.
In John 14:13-14 you say, “Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.”
We ask in your name Jesus, that you pour out a double portion of your Spirit upon us (2 Kings 2:9).
You say Lord, we are no longer two; but one flesh. What therefore you have joined together, let no man separate (Matthew 19:6).
We pray therefore Abba Father, for a hedge of protection around our bond which was forged in your presence.
We ask Father God, that any evil seeking to disrupt this covenant, you set snares upon their feet so they may stumble upon the stones; and strike them down with the Sword of the Spirit, which is your Word Lord (Ephesians 6:17).
We pray Father, you guide us to be self-controlled, to be pure, to be kind and submissive, that your word may not be reviled (Titus 2:4-5).
We pray Lord that you give us the authority over each others bodies (1 Corinthians 7:1-40); that we love each other as Christ loved the church and gave His life for it.
We pray for understanding and a showing of honor for each other (1 Peter 3:7); to respect and love each other (Ephesians 5:33). We pray Lord that our marriage be held in honor and that our bed be undefiled (Hebrews 13:4).
We give thanks always, and for everything we give honor to You God, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ (Ephesians 5:20).
Lastly Lord, let us always remember that love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy. It does not boast, it is not proud. It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres (1 Corinthians 13).
It is in these things we pray and in the Holy Name of Jesus we give thanks. Amen. Amen,
