Heavenly Father, You deserve my praise, because You are faithful. You are the same yesterday, today and forever. Thank You for Your Word, which is so powerful and enriches my life.
Lord, today I pray for all my brothers in Christ who are having challenges in their marriages and trust You to renew their commitment towards their respective wives.
1 Corinthians 10:12
Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall. No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.
Guide my married brothers, Father. Teach them to be patient, loyal and understanding, as they were in the beginning, but even more so now. May they be faithful to their wives and have the respect, commitment and emotional connection necessary for growth.
Where intimacy issues arise, show them Your glory as it pertains to their sexual desires. May these couples grow together in intimacy and be comforted in times of need. Preserve their marriages and keep it free from the evil forces that lurk. Help them to be humble and to give all the gratitude and praise to You.
Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.
For My Marriage
Almighty God, in the name of Jesus, I command every mountain that has come against our marriage be torn down! Holy Spirit, speak to us and help us to recognize Your voice.
Continue to bless us with the marriage relationship You intended for us to have. May my husband seek after you in all things and be the spiritual header of our household.
Remove anything he may be struggling with. May he be guided by the Holy Spirit and seek your counsel everyday. I declare that our marriage is preserved to eternity. In Jesus' name, SO BE IT...AMEN!

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.
