Honour Each Other

Dear Jesus,

Sometimes I struggle to navigate wisely through relationships. Friendships, associateships, love relationships, familial relationships you name it.

Lord I need your advice and guidance every day.

I have a special prayer for a special kind of relationship. The love relationship between a man and and a woman.

Lord you have so much to say about this kind of relationship. Special principles that tell us how to communicate with our significant others and how to manage our strong emotions.

You said that we are to honour each other and talk softly to each other. Love each other, never forgetting to treat each other how we would like to be treated.

This is not very easy with so many differences at play.

Encourage us to keep learning and striving to love.

In your Name,

Amen

 

Connections

Dear Jesus,

I am single and I am really longing to meet someone who you think is good for me.

Lord, I believe I am ready to take this step into dating.

Thank you for helping me make that step and preparing me to do it confidently.

But I am constant in need of your help and advice when making my connections.

Continue to guide me in this Lord.

Thank you.

In your Name,

Amen

Intimate Relationships

Dear Jesus,

When I comes to intimate relationships I know you only want the very best for us.

You want us all to be happy and enjoy fullfilling relationships and not ones that only undermine and hold us back.

Lord help me to understand what is right in a relationship, what is acceptable and what is for good.

Lord I know how hurtful some actions can be to you and my relationship with you.

So help us to determine what is right especially at this crucial time.

In your Name,

Amen

This Union

Dear Jesus,

I want to let you know about something that has been on my mind for a while.

I am not going to worry about it.

This relationship that I have formed with (name), please show us that you have approved of this union.

How do we know that you have approved?

What can we learn from this? How do you desire us to be towards each other?

In your Name,

Amen

A Congenial Spouse

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for being our God, our father, our saviour from death, heartache, destruction, guilt, everything that sin brings.

Thank you for your love, that we don’t deserve.

For this love, that you are, you deserve all the praises.

I have a personal request.

Your word says that a congenial spouse comes straight from you.

If and whoever you wish to unite any of us with in marriage and life, give us the wisdom to know he/she is right for us.

Help us all to become suitable people. Suitable in your eyes.

Whatever you desire to teach us, help us to understand what we are being taught.

In your Name,

Amen
