#579 - Marriage Counseling
Volume 2 - Prayers to Love Our Neighbor
Dear Father, my spouse and I need marriage counseling. We have differences that we simply cannot resolve. Our stubborn wills clash and we end up bruised and battered. Father, I ask that You convince my spouse that we need counseling. Lead us to the right counselor. What kind of counselor is that? A counselor who understands that the core problem in all relationships is when the people involved do not surrender their lives to You. Father, when we live as though we are our own gods we live selfishly. We are at the center of our universes. The world is to meet our needs and satisfy our desires. This comes into play in our marriages. When both a husband and wife have the heart attitude of "me, me, me" they are going to have conflict in their marriage. However, when we surrender our lives to you, it becomes "God, God, God". It's in that place that we can love our spouses genuinely because we understand how deeply God loves them. Help us to find a counselor who will help us apply this truth in the issues we face each day. Father, save our marriage - for Your honor, for our enjoyment, and for the blessing of our children's future marriages. Amen.
