Today’s Prayer (04/17/2021)

Oh Lord, I pray for every marriage in my family, my friend’s families, co-workers, and others in this world also. What I am seeing are marriages that are struggling. People giving up hope because of a lack of love and trust in their marriage. Things have happened and they are now considering getting a divorce. This is so sad. Help them, Lord. I know that I have been very close to divorce also. Thank You, God, that it did not happen and I am still with my wife after 14, almost 15 years. Time has passed by faster than I thought. My two daughters are growing up before my eyes and I am so grateful that they did not have to deal with separate families because of divorce. Sure, my wife and I don’t always get along. We have our shortcomings and a number of arguments also. The only thing that has kept this marriage together is my great faith in You, Jesus. If you were not with me, then I may have given up a long time ago. So thank You for Your daily encouragement to carry on and to trust that things will get better. The same I hope and pray for other marriages also. If other couples would just look to You in faith, then the thoughts of divorce would leave them. You are our Savior, Jesus. I trust in You. Amen.

1 Corinthians 7:3-5

1 Corinthians 7:3-5 (KJV)
3 Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.
4 The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.
5 Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.
