Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for the gifts and benefits that You have beautified me with. I am in awe of Your great love and compassion for me, and I daily realize that You hold nothing back when it comes to taking care of me.
I thank You for the gift of life, love, and family. You have crowned me with fruitfulness and joy. I thank You for every opportunity that comes to me as I journey through the earth. You have blessed me with platforms to show forth Your light through my daily conversations and actions as I interact with friends, family, and everyone around me.
Lord, I am thankful for the privilege of having children and seeing them grow to maturity. I thank Lord for their homes, and I thank You, especially for my son and his family.
Dear Father, marriage was Your idea, and we can only look to You to guide us through the journey of living right and doing good by our spouse.
Therefore, Lord, I hand over my son’s marriage to You; I ask that You will step in and turn this home back on course. Dear Lord, You calm storms, heal broken hearts and give solace to the weary. I pray that You take the course of this marriage and steer it back to the calm seas.
I can see that they are both trying so hard to fix each other, and they are weary from trying to hold up this marriage. Dear God, my heart bleeds as I see them struggling under the weight of a crumbling marriage.
I hear them fight each other and tear themselves down. I realize that the real enemy is hiding in the rear and inciting hate and anger in this home.
