Praying for Your Spouse: Trinity

Description

Edy Sutherland, for Family Matters, shares a prayer to ask God to weave you and your spouse together in divine oneness.

“Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken”—Ecclesiastes 4:12.

In our youth we harbor a false sense of vitality. In our comfort we rest in a fabricated assurance of safety. In our earthly pleasures we satisfy the temporal and sacrifice the eternal.

Only God brings assurance of triumph over the uncertainties this world dispenses. Our covenantal bond to the ONE who saves guarantees our vitality, our safety and pleasure through Jesus, motivated by the Spirit for eternal communion with the Father. Our prayers weave the union.

Oh triune God, I invite you be the lover of my soul, the rock of my salvation, and the source of my hope. I ask for you to be the essence of my (husband’s/wife’s) being and the source of (his/her) righteousness. Captivate (his/her) mind to gaze upon your beauty. Fasten your wisdom to (his/her) consciousness. Show (him/her) how to follow your teachings and hold firm to your law.

Weave us together in divine oneness. Fortify our marital promise with You to endure with joy trouble, hardship, persecution, hunger, or danger. We ask that our bond be resilient and sturdy. By the work of Your hands I sing cheerfully with praise and thanksgiving. I pray these things by the name of Jesus to the Father in the inspiration of the Spirit, Amen.
