15 Bible Verses to Pray for Your Marriage
God, You are the Potter, and we are the clay. Mold us individually into the image of Your Son that we might reflect Your glory. Mold us as a married couple into one being that we might accomplish Your will. We are the work of Your hands, Lord. Remind of us that daily and help us to walk in Your will.
Lord, we know that You have great plans for our lives – both individually and as a married couple. Guide us into Your will for our lives. Remind us on the difficult days that we have hope – that our hope lies in You alone.
When life seems difficult, dear Lord, help us to find our joy in You. Remind us that true joy does not come from circumstance but in the relationship we have with You through Your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior.
When troubles in life threaten to overwhelm us, Lord, help us to remember and take comfort in the fact that You have overcome the world.
Do not allow us to be conformed to this world, Father, but help us to hold our marriage to Your standard. As we seek to renew our minds through time spent in Your Word and in prayer, show us Your will for our lives and marriage.
1 Corinthians 10:31
Whatever we do in our lives and marriage, Lord, may we do it for You honor and glory.
Father, we pray that we would treat one another with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love.
Guard our tongues, Father. Help us to speak the truth to one another in love – that no unwholesome words would come out of our mouths. May our speech be filled with grace and work to edify one another.
Give us hearts of forgiveness, Lord. May we be kind to one another, forgiving one another just as You have forgiven us through Christ Jesus.
Father, we confess our tendencies to grumble against and argue with one another. Help us, by Your Spirit, to live peaceably with one another in order that we might be a witness to others.
Lord, we know that the source of our strength comes from You alone and that we can face any circumstance in that strength. We pray that we would not attempt to do life on our own but that we would tap into the Source of our strength on a daily basis.
Help us to put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience; bearing with on another, and forgiving one another, just as You have forgiven us.
1 Timothy 6:7-8
We have brought nothing into this world and cannot take anything out of it with us. Teach us to be content with whatever You have given us, Father. Do not let our possessions (whether plenty or lacking) be a cause of stress in our relationship. May we be ever grateful for each and every blessing You bestow and seek to be good stewards in all things.
Help us to spur one another on toward good deeds, God. May we ever challenge one another to grow in our love for one another, for others, and for You.
Marriage is to be held in honor among all, and the marriage bed is to be undefiled. God, protect our marriage and the intimacy that comes with this relationship. May we strive to keep it holy and pure.
