Lord, I pray that you would protect my marriage from anything that would harm or destroy it.  Shield it from our own selfishness and neglect, from the evil plans and desires of others, and from unhealthy or dangerous situations.  May there be no thoughts of divorce or infidelity in our hearts, and none in our future.  Set us free from past hurts, memories, and ties from previous relationships and unrealistic expectations of one another.  I pray that there be no jealousy in either of us, or the low self-esteem that precedes that.  Let nothing come into our hearts and habits that would threaten the marriage in any way, especially influences like alcohol, drugs, gambling, pornography, lust, or obsessions. 

Unite us in a bond of friendship, commitment, generosity, and understanding.  Eliminate our immaturity, hostility, or feelings of in adequacy.  Help us to make time for one another, alone, to nurture and renew the marriage and remind ourselves of the reasons we were married in the first place.  I pray that my husband will be so committed to you, Lord, that his commitment to me will not waiver, no mater what storms come.  I pray that our love for each other will grow stronger every day, so that we will never leave a legacy of divorce to our children.
