Marriage

From For Your Marriage:

The marriage rate continues to decline in the United States. In fact, there has been a decline of over 50% from 1970 ā€“ 2010 in the annual number of marriages in every 1000 unmarried adult women.

Ecclesiastes 3 (AMP)
There is a season (a time appointed) for everything and a time for every delight and event or purpose under heaven . . .
A time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing.

Our Father in heaven,

We know that the single Christian adults of this nation are treasured by You. Did You not send a kinsman redeemer to the Moabite widow Ruth, who honored Naomi and You? Ruth’s kinsman redeemer, Boaz, honored You and protected Ruth and Naomi in their vulnerability.

Jesus Christ, O Man of Honor, You are the Kinsman Redeemer of the Gentile Christians in the United States, especially _____.

Christ be with them,
Christ before them,
Christ behind them,
Christ within them,
Christ beneath them,
Christ above them,
Christ on their right,
Christ on their left,
Christ when they lie down,
Christ when they sit down,
Christ when they arise,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of them,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of them,
Christ in every eye that sees them,
Christ in every ear that hears them.

Let the honor of their hearts bear fruit, as did Ruth’s and Boaz’s. We declare that the Christians of this land will not be cut off as a nation! They shall become a great people holy to the Lord. They shall be a people of covenant. They shall be a people of marriage. Amen.
