WEEKLY PRAYER FOCUS – Week 4: August 21- 31

Focus Prayer: GOD’S PRESENCE IN MARRIAGES

 1 JOHN 4:12 “No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.”

Dear God, we thank You for the gift of marriage and for being the source of love. May our Marriages be known by Your love. We pray that our actions toward each other would be an example of Your sacrifice and a result of Your presence.

God, we give You permission to invade our home, take over our thoughts, and direct our paths. Be our strength when challenges come and remind us that it is the manifestation of Your Spirit that holds our union together. We ask that You give us the discipline we need to seek You daily and the boldness to live out Your plans. Abide in us. We rely on You and we are grateful for Your presence in our lives. We are fully dependent on Your presence and desire for our lives to be the evidence of Your love.
