31 Verses to Pray for Your Marriage {Proverbs 4:23}

Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.

Proverbs 4:23



Financial strain.

Prodigal children.







Past history.

The battle for keeping our marriages in tact isn’t easy. And the truth is, marriages rarely fall apart because of one big thing … marriages collapse because we haven’t paid attention to all the little things.

Often, we neglect those small ways of encouraging one another in the middle of the day-to-day tasks of managing a home, parenting, working, and all the other “stuff” that fills our time.

But what if God is calling us to remember to do those small things …

An “I love you” text in the middle of the day.

Taking out the trash.

Go for a walk.



Today, will you take your prayer one step further and act … do something small to invest further into your marriage.

31 Verses to Pray for Your Marriage || Proverbs 4:23

Lord, we KNOW the enemy wants to destroy marriages. He is on the prowl looking for something to destroy (John 10:10). Help us to be vigilant in building a hedge around our relationship, around our home. Cause us to be focused and diligent about protecting our hearts and guarding our relationship.  Help us see the way small things can add up and give us a passion and desire to invest deeply into the covenant relationship we have in You.  In Jesus’ name. Amen.
