Marriage Prayer

     Father you took the rib from man and made it into woman and brought her to him. And Adam said “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman for she was taken out of man.” Therefore we leave our mother and father and being joined as husband and wife we shall become one flesh. Knowing that what God has put together no man will separate. May you Lord go before us and make the crooked places straight, break in peaces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron in our marriage. May you give us the treasures of darkness and the hidden riches of the secret places?
     For we know you are our peace, who has made both of us one and broken down the wall of partition between us and made our marriage a three strand cord that is not easily broken. You have tied us together Husband, Wife and Lord. As you keep us the apple of your eye, hiding us under the shadow of your wing; may the fruit of your Spirit; Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-control abound themselves in our marriage.
     As we confess our love for one another in honor, may your grace go before us removing fear and giving us the Spirit of Power, Love and a Sound mind. For perfect love casts out all fear and your light is our salvation. Help us to speak the truth in love, making every effort to keep unity of the Spirit through the Lord of peace, quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.
     We thank you are home shall be built by wisdom and by understanding it is established. Your knowledge fills its rooms with rare and beautiful treasures. We will not forsake Wisdom and she will protect us. We will love her and she will watch over us. We will embrace her and she will honor us.
     Father as we seek first your kingdom and its righteousness, acknowledge you as Lord of our lives, you will supply all our needs. As we give in our marriage it will be given unto us good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over shall men give unto our home.
     May the blessing we have chosen today be fulfilled continually in our marriage? You are not a man that you should lie nor the son of man that you should ever change your mind. Have you said it and will you not do it, you have spoken and you will make it good. Your word shall not return unto you void but it will accomplish that which you have done in this marriage. Amen

Prayer of the Heart

     Let not my mouth come forth in untruth, but brings forth my words as your servant not as you slave. My understanding of your word is so minimal in the process of knowing you. May you instill in my heart and my mind all the study that I have done and bring to life your word inside me never to be removed until the time I receive you as eternity. Give me the distance between the people and the persons in which you have called me to. Instill in me the righteousness of the ages in order to stand in this hour and time to provide the necessary love and power to overcome every obstacle that stands in my way. On the course of Love my eyes cannot see the sights you have for me because they are polluted with age. Lift me up above all human resource that I may be the person of your words with the intellect and wisdom to overcome the world and especially myself. Thank you for humbling me in the sweetness of your arms let no man come between us and lead me not into temptation but deliver me from evil with the word that is in my heart from the years of hunger for you. Let your face shine upon me and cleanse me of all impurity. Make this a house of prayer that I may burn for you in the sight of all evil. Glean me into the vessel of honor and loose the bonds of iniquity from around my neck. Cleanse me from all impurity Oh Lord and give the Wisdom of the ages. Let the son of the father come to me and visit his will to me for the purpose of setting my heart in the right place to see me as your son and in the light of glory. See me with the spirit I pray. Holy Spirit come unto me in the manner in which you have in the past. Bring forth all that was given and give me a double portion so as to separate me unto you. Set my heart ablaze in the confines of my heart so no man will be able to submit except to you. Hear me o Lord that I may hear with the ears of the Holy Spirit and that the world will not come between us. Cleanse my eyes that I may make the sight of glory the main stream that flows from my belly and into the river of joy. Touch me again and again until you have had enough. Let the river flow as it did and bring forth the new revival. Define in my heart your intent to give to the people the love and power that is waiting for all who come to you. Let every step and every mile I take be the releasing power of your glory onto the earth Thank you for sending me forth to your people in the manner that we have so patiently waited for. LET THE RIVER FLOW. Amen
