Marriage Prayer – That We Would Learn How to Comfort Each Other
Dear Heavenly Father,
When one is hurting, we both hurt. On difficult days, during our deepest times of trouble we want nothing more than to comfort each other, but the challenge comes in knowing what to say and how to say it.
Teach us to be quiet long enough to listen.
Give us the right words to say, or the wisdom to say nothing at all.
We don’t have to have all of the answers, but we want to encourage, and we want to speak life to each other. Please give us the wisdom to do that.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ. – 2 Corinthians 1:3-5
Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord; that walketh in his ways. For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee. – Psalm 128:1-2
