Therefore encourage one another and build each other up. 1 Thessalonians 5:11
Back in the summer, there was a lot of news stories in the UK about issues with luggage going missing for travellers and issues with baggage handlers. When we travelled, we were advised to pack essential items in our hand luggage in case our main luggage was delayed.
This got us thinking about the main things that we treasure most in our marriage and about each other. What essential items really make your marriage work? What things do you treasure most about your partner? Pick 3 and tell each other about them.
Prayer (as a couple)
Father God, we thank you for the things we’ve just shared with each other. We pray you will strengthen us and encourage us. Amen
Prayer (for others)
We pray for ____ and ____ who don’t seem to be finding positives in each other. We pray that you will help them find some areas in which they are able to connect and treasures that they appreciate in each other.
‘Treasure the love you receive above all. It will survive long after your good health has vanished.’ Og Mandino
