Dear Heavenly Father,
It’s easy to lose our temper when we’re stressed. It’s easy to be irritable when we’re overwhelmed. It’s easy to be grumpy when we’re tired.
What’s not to easy is being gentle and kind when our flesh is at war with the spirit.
Satan is lurking around every corner. He desires to tear us down. He wants to see us at war with each other. He wants our marriage to crumble under the weight of our sin.
But we’re not servants of sin. We’ve been bought with a price, and we’re choosing Your perfect will over the flesh.
Help us to walk in righteousness and truth. Grant us the patience to be gentle and kind when we’re stressed. Give us the strength to control our emotions and to always choose love.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. – Romans 6:16-18
