Praying for marriage, day 76

Today I pray for parents of handicapped children. I can’t imagine the challenges and have no idea what they face every day, but I pray for a special grace and mercy for them. I pray for patience and extra oodles of love. I pray for a strong-knit community to come around them in love with help and encouragement. I pray for getaways and breaks and date nights. I pray for financial help and dependable assistance. I pray against bitterness and anger. I pray for a unique one-ness in the marriage relationship. I pray that their marriages will get stronger through caring for these children instead of getting strained and broken. I pray that the marriage will remain a top priority and that it won’t be sacrificed even for the sake of the children.
