Praying for marriage, day 75

Today I pray for marriages that are strained by the sadness of children who don’t know Jesus. I pray against finger-pointing and shame and blame. I pray for hope and an understanding that only God can change hearts. I pray for grace toward the children instead of lecturing, pressuring, and rejecting. I pray for the children that they will come to know Jesus. And I pray that the spouses will grow super close as they learn to love their children in effective, Christ-focused ways.
