You Have Been Prayed For… GENESIS 2:23-24

Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I ask that you consider this, from Gary Smalley & John Trent in their classic book The Blessing.  If you have not read this, I strongly suggest it and recommend it.

“In a world awash with insecurity and in search of acceptance, we need biblical anchors to hold on to.”

“…unmet needs for personal acceptance can keep a person emotionally chained to his or her parents’ home, unable to genuinely cleave to another person in a lasting relationship.  For this reason many couples never get off the ground in terms of marital intimacy.”   

Genesis 2:23-24 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

23 The man said,

“This is now bone of my bones,
And flesh of my flesh;
She shall be called Woman,
Because she was taken out of Man.”

24 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined (cleaved) to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.

Abba, by the power of the Holy Spirit, through and by Your Son Jesus, Your servant prays.  Endless praise and gratitude from Your servant’s heart to Yours.  Thank You for these biblical anchors.  More bluntly put dear Abba, Thank You for truth.  Help us break chains that hold us back from who You desire us to be.  Be our strength and courage as we take the steps You carefully placed before us.  Bless all the marriages that are today, in the Name of Jesus.  Bless all those marriages yet to be, in the Name of Jesus.  Help us to heal and mend any broken hearts.  Provide us opportunity to speak life into our brothers and sisters marriages.  Use us to encourage Your children to cleave to their helpmates, and to raise a hallelujah to You them in the first place.  May our marriages bring You honor and glory.  In Jesus’ Name, amen.

  1. I know you have seen it. Many others have not. In our living room hangs a wall board that says, “Happiness is being married to your best friend.” Sheila and I are best friends. We desire to maintain that after 34 years of marriage. We believe that’s how God meant it to be. It is not easy, ask Sheila! But we desire it and maintain it, in His power. Thank you my brother. You and your family have also been and will continue to be prayed for.
