Are You Praying for God's Peace in Your Marriage?
When anxious about the stresses swirling about your marriage, do you experience God’s peace in your heart? If not, what can you do?
Lord, I know You say in Your Word, “My peace I give unto you.” Right now, right here, I ask You to grant me Your peace.
I confess that, if I were at total peace with my spouse, I would be tempted to live in a bubble of superficial contentment, thinking I do not need Your peace. But now, Lord, I am driven to seek You, the only place where real peace can be found.
I open my heart to You, Lord.
When I feel unloved and grieved, impart Your Peace.
When I feel disrespected and quenched, send Your Peace.
Grant to me Your peace—this day, this very hour.
In Thy name I ask this. Amen.
