Song of Solomon 2:10-12
My lover spoke and said to me, “arise my darling my beautiful one, and come with me. See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come. Arise, come my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.”
Father, we thank you for our marriages. We embrace the gift of covenant as you show us how to take pleasure in each other. Show us how to love like You love. Show us how to love even when we don’t feel like it. Forgive us for the times we rejected love and chose to act in anger, bitterness, hate and unforgiveness. Help us seek You and Your word for the answers. Surround us with wise counsellors that will help us grow and stay on path to what You want for our lives. Purify our hearts and make us whole. Let us see with Your eyes and be gentle with our words. Let joy abound to make our marriages strong. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen!
