31 Days of Prayer for your Spouse

Peace

“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.”

Isaiah 26:3

 

Isaiah writes of a day where Judah will be in perfect peace, kept in that sphere of peace by God.  Yet he also places a condition of sorts on that peace, stating that a trust in God is essential to God’s keeping us in peace.  For many marriages, peace is a fleeting aspect of the relationship.  Struggles with finances, parenting, in-laws, and a whole host of other situations often encroach upon our supposed boundaries of peace.

 

For a married couple, trust in all situations is the key to living in peace.  If each partner can fully trust the other with money, with parenting decisions, etc…then peace follows naturally.  Each partner knows the other is never going to make a decision without it being carefully thought through.  The trust that exists in these situations fosters incredible peace for the marriage.

 

Pray for your spouse today in this manner – Lord, may I be found to be an extension of your peace.  May my spouse trust me so fully that they know I always have the best interest of them and our family at heart.  Allow your Holy Spirit to foster trust and peace between us, and to awaken needs in our lives where we need to grow in those areas.  May we be at peace with each other, as we are at peace with You in Christ.
