Kingdom Prayer Focus

Heavenly Father, we come before you to thank you that in your kingdom there are some rules... and that those rules matter, but the principles behind the rules are what matter most. We ask that you help to keep us Christ Centered in our marriages, and give us the ability to be a united front for you, letting nothing come between us. Help us to identify whatever is at the center of our lives that influence our values and beliefs…good and bad. Remind us to come to you seeking a stronger bond of Solidarity/Oneness in our marriage covenant by keeping Jesus as our ONE and our spouse as our TWO. Help us to reflect your intention of Fidelity/Commitment in our marriages back to you so that you will be glorified and pleasing in your sight. We are thankful and excited to see the work of your hand as we do our best to seek your face daily. We love you and thank you for all of these things. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen!
