Prayer for God’s Will for a Marriage
I love you! You are our Maker. You are called the Lord of Hosts; The Holy One of Israel and Redeemer. But, there is more. You chose to name Yourself, Husband. For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is his name; and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer, the God of the whole earth he is called. (Isaiah 54:5) You called Yourself a Husband to the children of Israel. You are the perfect Husband. You love devotedly. You never leave. Your heart aches with compassion. You provide for all needs. You defend. You protect. I will betroth you to me forever; I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in love and compassion. I will betroth you in faithfulness, and you will acknowledge the LORD. (Hosea 2:19-20) Your love never changes. No one has to worry if You are going to withdraw Your love. You love even when we are unfaithful. You are a Jealous God; with a furious love for us. (Exodus 34:14)
With grateful hearts we thank YOU for loving us this fiercely. (Song of Songs 8:6-7)
Father, You are the mirror of what a husband should be to his wife. The ancient Hebrew word ish translates to “husband.” The root meaning to ish is “to marry.” Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. (Genesis 2:24) You ordained marriage as TWO becoming ONE. The meaning of “ONE” in the ancient hebrew text is to be “united” and to “agree.”(Strongs 259/3391) This union is powerful for Your Kingdom purposes! For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them. (Matthew 18:20) Marriage is a powerful union called to make Your Name Known and to further Your Kingdom. Give praise to the LORD, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done. (Psalm 105:1) Two becoming One, with You being their foundation, has always been Your heart. And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken. (Ecclesiastes 4:12) Hell cannot prevail against these three strands! AMEN!
You created us for love and unity. Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.” (Genesis 2:18) You did not want man to be alone and out of great compassion “made” for him a “helper.” Helper means so much in this verse. A “helper suitable for him” means this: “help that surrounds and protects one who is suffering or in a difficult situation.”(Strongs 5826/5828) What beauty is found in these two people called together as ONE; to surround and protect each other from the difficulties of a fallen world and to glorify Your Name for Your Kingdom’s sake, together; as ONE. This marriage in agreement with Your will and ways is the most powerful force on the earth. AMEN!
Father, In the Mighty Name of Jesus I ask for You to strengthen the marriage of my friend. I pray both partners know they were chosen by You and trusted by You to erase loneliness; to defend, to love, and to protect their love in trying times. Give them wisdom generously as they help each other in reaching their dreams, calling, and their highest potential for Your Kingdom work. (James 1:5) I pray no weapon formed against this relationship to prosper. (Isaiah 54:17) I pray this marriage be rooted and grounded in Your love. Bind them together with Your love, as ONE. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. (Colossians 3:14) May Your love for them overflow from each of their hearts with loyalty abounding. May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you. (1 Thessalonians 3:12) AMEN!
Father, what does Your child do if their “helper” is part of their difficulties in this fallen world? They need to give it to YOU. “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” (Psalm 46:10) Your Word says You will perfect that which concerns us. The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever; Do not forsake the works of Your hands. (Psalm 138:8) NKJV Thank You Father that You are perfecting what is concerning in this marriage and directing their steps, as well as closing doors, to avoid unwanted heartache and pain in this holy marriage. Your child needs to be reminded of this: What therefore God has united (joined together), let not man separate or divide. (Mark 10:9). Your child needs to cling to this promise: I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the hopper, the destroyer, and the cutter, my great army, which I sent among you. (Joel 2:25) You are the Repairer of the Breach. Restore this family brilliantly, as only You know how. AMEN!
I pray this marriage and family glorifies Your Holy Name!
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.
May it be so and may you believe so!
In the Mighty Name of Jesus we have prayed!
Amen and Amen,
I love YOU,
