My mouth, my marriage ~ Wed Nov 6/13

power of prayer

~ 1 Cor 13 adapted for times of struggling in marriage ~

Lord, with Your love in me I will be able to endure anything.  Your love will demonstrate itself as patient and kind towards my husband.  Because of Your love Lord I will not be jealous or prideful.  I will not behave rudely or unmannerly with my thoughts, words or actions towards Your son when he fails, but be a support, I will act becomingly of You so You will be proud.

If I really have Your love in me God, I will not insist on my own rights or my own way, because Jesus showed us Your love is not self-seeking.  I refuse to be touchy, fretful or resentful in our marriage and will pay no attention to any wrong that I suffer.  I know that with You as my avenger I will be able to rejoice because truth will always prevail.

Thank You Jesus for proving how God’s love bears up under anything and everything that comes in marriage.  With the infusing strength and power of the Holy Spirit, I can believe the best in my husband.  I can endure without weakening because with Your love in me God, my hope is fadeless in all circumstances.  You LORD, will never fail.  AMEN

  1. I really loved this thought – “If I really have Your love in me God, I will not insist on my own rights or my own way, because Jesus showed us Your love is not self-seeking.” If every husband and wife could learn this, all our marriages would be greatly helped and improved. Many of us are way to selfish, whether we want to admit it or not.

    Great post Robyn!

    1. “Many of us are way to selfish, whether we want to admit it or not.”

      Completely agree with you here. With one out of every two marriages failing it’s kind of hard to deny it.
