Marriage Prayer for May 30: teach us to love those who hurt us.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Please teach us to love those who hurt us. It’s easy to love the ones who are kind and the ones who are gentle, but the challenge comes when we’re called to love in difficult times.
Some days it feels as though we don’t have the strength to love in a way that is pleasing to You, but You have taught us differently. You loved us before we loved You.
Guide our steps. Give us the strength to love as You do–with kindness, forgiveness, compassion, and grace.
Teach us to pray for them, Lord. Remind us to get down on our knees, leave our pain at the foot of Your throne, and rest in the knowledge that You’re working on our behalf.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s. To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel. Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the LORD will be with you. – 2 Chronicles 20:15–17, KJV
He said: “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the Lord says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. Tomorrow march down against them. They will be climbing up by the Pass of Ziz, and you will find them at the end of the gorge in the Desert of Jeruel. You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the Lord will be with you.’” – 2 Chronicles 20:15-17, NIV
