This semester I have been overwhelmingly blessed by a class on the book of Romans. As I've poured over Paul's words, my heart has ached, rejoiced and sighed.
I looked over some of my notes from my study this afternoon, and I was reminded in one of the margins of a passage that is now part of my prayer life as a wife and a partner in ministry with my husband.
I know that the enemy seeks to divide and conquer in ministry marriages. Romans 15:5-6 is a benediction of unity for the body of believers, and I feel it is a fitting benediction for husbands and wives working shoulder to shoulder for the advancement of the Kingdom of God.
Feel free to print this prayer of blessing as a reminder to pray for unity within your marriage and within your congregation. (Clicking on the graphic will take you to the full-size file, right click and 'save image as' to your computer for printing.)
"The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you." Romans 16:20 Hallelujah!
