Dear Heavenly Father,
We pray concerning the tough season some couples are experiencing in their marriages today. With all the unresolved conflict from the past, well before the Coronavirus pandemic, these times are high-lighting and exposing couples to looming issues that is causing marriage and family division.
Lord sometimes we are so eager to get our point across, we forget that there is another perspective regarding the conflict we are experiencing. Lord, Your Word says, “ So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God” (James 1:19-20). Lord, we need your help and guidance to respond positively with love and compassion as husband and wife in marriage.
Help us to take the time to listen to each other’s heart so that we might know when the other is hurting or in need of an ear to just listen. Lord, help us to see the struggles we are facing and give us the wisdom we need to resolve the conflict together as husband and wife. Help us to feel what our spouse is feeling, so that we might grow stronger in grace. Lord, remind us to lift our spouse up in prayer on a regular basis. Lord, finally, help us to be the best husband and wife we can be to glorify your name by being a good listener, fulfil our purpose in marriage and to do Your Will. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.
