Prayer for Marriages

Heavenly Father,

We come before You today to seek Your guidance and wisdom for our marriage. We ask that You would bless us with the strength to love and support each other, to communicate openly and honestly, and to always put each other and our relationship first.

We pray that our marriage would be a reflection of Your love, grace, and forgiveness to each other and to those around us. Help us to remember that our marriage is a sacred covenant, not just between us but also between us and You. Protect us from temptation and the attacks of the enemy, and keep our hearts and minds pure and focused on You.

We pray that our love for each other would grow deeper and stronger every day, and that we would be a source of encouragement and support to each other. May our marriage be a blessing to our family, friends, and community, and may it bring glory to Your name.

In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

1 Corinthians 7:3-5 ESV

The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband. For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

The heart of her husband trusts in her,
    and he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good, and not harm,
    all the days of her life.
