Praying from Matthew 19:9. Themes: Marriage, Adultery, Divorce.
Dear Lord, we come before you with humble hearts, seeking your guidance and wisdom in our relationships. We ask for your grace and mercy to help us honor the covenant of marriage that you have established. We pray that you would help us to remain faithful to our spouses and to resist the temptation to seek fulfillment outside of our marriage. We ask for your forgiveness for any past mistakes and for the strength to make things right. Help us to love and cherish our spouses as you have commanded us to do. We pray for those who are struggling in their marriages, that you would bring healing and restoration. May we always seek your will in our relationships and trust in your perfect plan for our lives. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
Verse: I tell you that whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery; and he who marries her when she is divorced commits adultery.”
This is a Command – The verse commands the reader to not divorce their spouse except for sexual immorality, and warns that marrying another person after divorce is committing adultery.
