Today I pray for marriages that are struggling with setting boundaries. Healthy boundaries provide for strong relationships. Much of the pain in marriages results from unclear boundaries with families and friends. Many times the fear of disappointing loved ones leads individuals to compromise their boundaries. Such issues often lead to communication breakdowns and further issues in a marriage. It is for this reason that we pray for marriages today.
Today I pray for marriages that are struggling with setting boundaries. Father, I pray that You heal the broken hearts and mend those rifts that have formed in some marriages. I pray that you will shine your light onto any hidden areas that need to be dealt with or uncovered. I pray that you will strengthen husbands and wives to set the boundaries needed and to get support for doing so. If there is counseling needed, ready their hearts so that they will desire to grow and change. Father, may this be the year that their marriages are renewed as they set the boundaries needed to make time for Your priorities. Thank You for the success we will see this year in marriages. In Jesus Name, Amen.
