“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)
We pray for our spouses’ physical, mental, and spiritual health. Shield and protect them, heal and comfort them, remind them of the hope they find in You when they are ill or in pain. There are many things in life we do not, and will not, understand. But no-one or nothing can change the number of our days on this earth that You have assigned us. You know every day. Let us take comfort in Your sovereignty, Father.
Bless our spouses to live out Your will for them fully, no matter what the world and the curse of sin throw at them. Help us to be supportive and encouraging, to listen and love them as they follow Your call on their lives. Bless our spouses, Father. Keep them physically safe, and healthy. We pray Your favor on their lives. Guard their hearts and minds in Christ Jesus, today and always. Reveal Your truth. Protect our spouses from invisible viruses and spiritual attacks. There is a time for everything, Father. Your perfect timing.
We trust You with the life of our spouse.
In Jesus’ Name,
