Holy God, praise be to Your name that You reign over all things. Your name has no defeat, and I have no reason to fear. Thank You for Your victory in my life. What Satan or man intends for evil, Lord, use it for good. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Thought for the Week: Psalm 141:3

Heavenly Father, forgive me for I speak words of defamation, gossip, and slander. I twist truth for my benefit, and I give wisdom that I don’t really have. Especially in my wedding-planning, in this time that seems all about me, I even feel justified in having a sharp tongue. Help me instead to use my mouth to love You and to love others. Do a work in this world through my very words. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Father, You are so creative and vast in Your design. Forgive me that I judge those who aren’t me and that I want to control those who do things differently from me. Help me to see the masterpiece in my husband that You see. Release me from my assumption that different is less valuable. I never want my husband to believe that he is not good enough for me, and I never want to rob You of the many ways You receive our worship. Teach me instead how to embrace my husband and to learn from his differences, for they are good! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Thought for the Week: Zechariah 2:8

Lord, loving Father, why do You delight in me? At times I feel arrogant accepting it. Other times, I reject the notion because I know how unlovable I can be. But in my spirit, I know there is truth and peace in receiving Your esteem for me because my identity is rooted in You. You are responsible for any goodness in me, and I want to praise You and Your work by magnifying You with my life and my being. Refine my self-image to Your glory. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Lord of Hosts, You descended to earth and lived among us in order to die and conquer death that we might be with You for eternity. Praise You, Lord! Let me never forget that Your power conquers all sin and death. No argument, betrayal, abuse, death, or lie can stand against the resurrecting power of Your Truth and Justice. Let me ever live by that hope! And like the women who visited the tomb, let me rejoice in telling others that Jesus has risen from the dead! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Lord, You are the One Who gathers. You are the Prince of Peace. I know that one day all will be restored. Until then, will You gather the generations together for times of peace in which they would know You better? Use my wedding for Your glory. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Father, You are the God Who rebuilds and restores. Let me never lose hope in You. Store up in me a strong faith during the times of prosperity so that I may cling to Who You are in the times of despair. Claim Your rightful place in my marriage always. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Lord, You are the God of celebration, yet even in the midst of planning such a joyous occasion as my wedding, I struggle to fully celebrate because of my own sin and the sin of those whom I love. Empower my faith with hope in Your mercy and might. Pursue me to the depths of my heart and pursue (name of your non-believing friend) until he/she responds to You with repentance and humility. Thank You that I can trust in You, O faithful Lord! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Holy, holy, holy Lord, my God Almighty, all glory and honor be to You! You are magnificent and merciful. I am sinful and in need of a savior. Jesus, forgive my sins, purify my heart, and make me wholly available to You. Help me not to seek only what marriage can do for me, but also how I can give to my marriage. Use my husband and me for great purpose in Your kingdom. Here we are; send us. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
