Daily Prayer for August 27th, 2021
Good Friday morning, God—thank you! 😊
My husband is a gift from you to me, just as wives are gifts from heaven too—made one flesh joined together by you. Therefore, Holy Spirit, please let my marriage be held in honor always, now, and forever! In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Principles for Marriage
7 Now concerning the matters about which you wrote: “It is good for a man not to have sexual relations with a woman.” 2 But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband. 3 The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband. 4 For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. 5 Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
6 So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”
4 Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.
32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
