Editorial Reviews

Vic's Media Room
“Ever been in a situation where you know you need to pray but feel so overwhelmed you can’t find the words? I know I have, so sometimes I would just sit there wanting to cry out but not really knowing what words to use. Well, Mark Gilroy to our rescue. Mr. Gilroy has given us six sections: Home and Family, Attitudes and Emotions, Work and Finances, Spiritual Growth, My World and Nation, and Mission and Service. Each section details the prayer in that area: I Have An Urgent Financial Need or I Feel Overwhelmed. There are verses to focus our attention on what God has to say on that subject and then the prayer that focuses our attention on God and His power to meet our need. This book will be used month after month, whenever there is a need for prayer, and there is always a need for prayer. It is that good a resource. It is perfect to give as gifts to family and friends that they, also, will use month after month and thank you for it. I recommend this book highly!”

Read an Excerpt

I WANT TO BE MARRIED

Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

—GENESIS 2:24 ESV

Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

—PSALM 37:4 ESV

What you are as a single person, you will be as a married person, only to a greater degree. Any negative character trait will be intensified in a marriage relationship, because you will feel free to let your guard down—that person has committed himself to you and you no longer have to worry about scaring him off.

—JOSH MCDOWELL

God of Love,

I know that I don’t have to be married to be a complete, whole, and happy person. I know it is better to be single than to marry the wrong kind of person. I know that You love me and have a perfect plan for my life. But You already know how much I want to find the perfect mate for me and be married for life.

I ask that, even as I hope to find the right person for me, You will help me to become the right person for someone else. Help me to be a person of character and kindness. Help me to be the kind of person who will help foster a faithful marriage and a joyful home. If there are areas of my personality and life that need to be refined, I ask that You do that work in me.

You know how badly I want to be married, but I pray that You would protect me from settling for the wrong person. I pray that I would only marry a person that shares my values and beliefs and would be as committed to me as I would be to them.

If You already have someone in mind for me, I pray that You would protect them in the same way I ask for protection. Make them into the person You want them to be and keep them from entanglements that will rob them of their esteem for marriage and the opposite sex.

I place my life and my dreams of marriage in Your hands with full trust that Your timing is always right. Thank You for putting a delight for love and marriage in my heart.

In Jesus’ beautiful name.

I WANT A BETTER MARRIAGE

Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.

—EPHESIANS 5:21–27 NIV

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.

—ROMANS 12:9–10 NIV

In marriage, each partner is to be an encourager rather than a critic, a forgiver rather than a collector of hurts, an enabler rather than a reformer.

—H. NORMAN WRIGHT AND GARY J. OLIVER

Gracious and Loving God,

You created us to love one another and for marriage to be a special bond of love, trust, and mutual respect between a husband and wife.

I love my spouse, but I see far too many ways that we fall short of what You have planned for us. Both of us have failed to express the love, the kindness, the respect, and the words that foster a wonderful relationship. As I call to You for help to turn my marriage around, O God, I don’t bring grievances and judgment against my spouse, but lay my own sins and shortcomings before You. I confess that I don’t have the words, thoughts, attitude, and deeds to make my marriage better in my own strength. I need You to fill me with your grace and wisdom that I may extend that grace and wisdom to my spouse.

With Your help, I promise to do all that is in my power to improve my marriage. I ask that You give me patience when problems don’t disappear instantly or I don’t get the immediate response from my spouse I was looking for. Most of all I ask that You help me love and respect my spouse as you taught us through Your love of the church.

I affirm my faith that You make all things new—and that You can transform my marriage into a relationship of love and respect and joy. Continue to bless me as I bless my spouse and marriage.

I pray all this in the blessed name of Jesus.
