Prayer: Our God in heaven, you who love families and ordained marriage as a blessing to your people, we cry out to you for divine help and guidance for those who you joined together. We know that your Word teaches that you love marriage and hate divorce. We know that you have promised to help those who struggle in difficult relationships — to give them all they need as they learn to depend on you. We pray that you would protect those marriages that are struggling. We pray that you would bless fathers and husbands and help them love their wives as your Son loves the church. We pray that mothers and wives would submit to their husbands as they submit to the Savior. We pray for our covenant children that they would never know a day that they didn’t love the Lord Jesus. We pray for our homes that they would have the aroma of Christ. We pray that you would help in all of these matters for the sake of Christ, our Savior. Amen.
