Today’s Prayer (03/14/2021)

Oh Lord, I pray that You will be with all Christians who are married. And that throughout their marriage, they will look to You in faith. Even when times seem very difficult, we need to trust that You know exactly what we need to do next. Yes, God, I pray that You will lead us by the hand. And if a spouse has either left the faith, is on the fence, or an atheist, help us know how to be a great example around them. We are Your lights, even around very harsh conditions and people. But if people do not change and are unwilling to work with us in our marriages, help us know exactly where to go next. I know that You said that people can divorce for reasons of fornication, abandonment, and if a spouse dies. I just pray that people do not jump to divorcing their spouse because of different reasons that are currently circling in their minds. Instead, I pray that people will get the necessary counsel from not just people, but You that they need. You are the best resource we have when it comes to making these decisions. Help us, Lord. We need You. You are my God and I worship You. I love You and give You praise and honor. Amen.

Romans 7:1-3

Romans 7:1-3 (KJV)
1 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?
2 For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband.
3 So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.
