Prayer for peace and unity in marriage.

Weekly prayer of July 24, 2005.

At The Way Ministries…John 14:6 everything is done in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.  

Our Father and our God in heaven. Hallowed be Your name. We thank You LORD for this day and this week. We thank You for all You have been showing us about unity and peace. We know that You alone are the LORD (Nehemiah 9:6), that You made man in Your image and likeness (Genesis 1:26), and that You hate divorce (Malachi 2:16). Unfortunately, the word on the street today, is that at least, one out of every two marriages, between believers or non-believers ends up in divorce.  

As You know LORD, from time to time, I come in contact with victims of divorce. Some are people that are close and dear to You. Based on these contacts, I surmise that today’s high divorce rate is evidence of the world and the church crying out to You for help. The world and the church are saying “LORD, we need You in our homes, we need You in our marriages, we need You in our schools, and we need You in the world around us.” We don’t need You to show us how to commit adultery, and fornication, and murder, or how to be drunk, or envious, and jealous or how to be hateful of one another, for we are already experts in committing these sinful acts. But we need You to show us how to give and receive love, joy, and peace. We need You to show us how to give and receive kindness, goodness, and gentleness. We need You to show us how to be faithful, how to exercise self-control, and how to handle longsuffering experiences (Galatians 5:16-26). We know we have the potential to successfully exercise these gifts because You made us in Your image and likeness. In Jesus name, please help us LORD, before sin destroys the family structure. 

In response, the LORD led me to 2 Chronicles 7:14 which says, “if My people who are called by my name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14). LORD, I hear You and I thank You for Your response. By Your grace, I will be back for more guidance and direction on how to prevent divorce and have peace and unity in marriage. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen. 

To our visitors: Let this prayer be yours as you receive it and personally offer it to God, Amen. If you said and offered this prayer to God and you desire to have peace and unity in your marriage, or if you have any comments or prayer requests please use this link to (Email Us).
