Prayer of Confession for Marriage

flag marriage prayer








Today is July 4th.  This marks the day when our country declared that the thirteen American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation .  John Adams wrote, “It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty.”

I can’t help but take a moment to reflect back on what our country was like then.  Fast forward and look at us now.

Let’s mark this as the day when once again we take a stand.  Once again let this be a day of deliverance.  May we act out of devotion to God Almighty.

-Please join me in praying this prayer of confession (making an admission) for marriage.-

Dear God,

Mark 10:6-9 says, But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’ Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh.  What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”

We confess that our country has lost sight of the sacred design you have for marriage.

We confess that the majority of couples now treat their marriage covenant like it’s optional. They don’t hold fast to each other and stand against whatever tries to separate them.

We confess that we have re-defined the very definition of marriage.  No longer is marriage defined as the union between a male and female.  But, the highest court in our land has decided this definition is just an option.

Nehemiah 9:2 says, “And the Israelites separated themselves from all foreigners and stood and confessed their sins and the iniquities of their fathers.”

Like the Israelites, we confess the iniquities of our country.

2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

We come praying and seeking Your face.  Please help us to wake up and realize our sin and turn from wrong ways.  We believe Your promise – that You will forgive and heal when we do this.

Please have mercy on America.

Prayer Journal recommended by Beth Moore

prayer journal pic










I just learned about a Prayer Journal that I just have to tell you about.  Beth Moore recently recommended it on her blog. The post states, “This is the journal that she patterned her prayer-approach after…”

Instead of feeling like you have to go through your whole list for every person every day, this Prayer Journal uses a column format. You write the names of those you pray for at the top (husband, list each of your children, church, nation, ministry area…) Under each name, you list something to pray for each day. Over the course of the week, you will have all the areas covered in prayer for every person on your list.

Here’s the author’s example of praying for your child…
6/21 Sleep thr nite
6/22 Feel Your Peace
6/23 ” ” ”
6/24 Patience w/her
6/25 Smooth bed time

Also, at the very top, you write an attribute of God that you will focus on that week. Find Scriptures about that attribute and then pray them back to God each day. I really love this idea!

Here’s the link where Beth recommended this Prayer Journal:

Here’s the author’s explanation of how to use:

The Journal is called Prayers of My Heart. I think these would make great gifts!
