Marriage is God’s picture of the abundance of love that Christ has for his bride, the Church. Pray for husbands to love their wives as Jesus loves the Church, and pray for wives to respect and honor their husbands.
“Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” Matthew 19:4–6 (NKJV)
