Prayer and Proclamations
Two tenderhearted spouses
will never get a divorce.
Every divorce has at least one hard heart.
(Mark chapter 10)
When you rub
two opposing "shoulds" together,
there is the potential
for a fire of anger
"We should do this."
"No, we should do that."
It is good to giggle!
Obstructs our view
of what our marriage can be.
Being in Love is Fun.
Fall in Love
all over again!
Highlighted Bible Verses
Main Bible Chapter: Mark chapter 10
In Mark chapter 10,
Jesus tells us that the reason for divorce is a hard heart.
So every divorce is caused by at least one hard heart.
May we all seek to cultivate a tender heart
toward our mate.
"And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you."
Ephesians 4:32 NKJV
"A tenderhearted person lives a blessed life;
a hardhearted person lives a hard life."
Proverbs 4:32 The Message
King David said to God,
"Thy gentleness hath made me great."
Psalm 18:35b KJV
"For He is our God and we are the people of His pasture
and the sheep of His Hand. Today, if you will hear His
voice, harden not your hearts as at Meribah and as at Massah in the day of temptation in the wilderness."
Psalm 95:7-8 AMP
(Hard hearts grieve God - Mark 3 :5 NKJV)
Tenderheartedness is a key ingredient
to great marriages!
So wouldn't it be wise to pray for tenderheartedness?

Lord God - Maker of Miracles,
I give you glory and honor and praise.
Lord, I lift up my marriage to you.
I pray that my heart will be stirred with love and tenderness toward my spouse.
I pray that you would minister to my emotions and that my emotions would become harmonious to your plans and purposes.

I declare that I will allow you to guide me toward your will and your way.
By faith I believe that our marriage will become more and more pleasing in your eyes.

In Jesus' name I pray,

I have been able to help many marriages by teaching couples about DISC personality information.
Understanding your mate leads to a better marriage!
I encourage you to go to the audio page and listen
to me teach about DISC.
Also please visit the Bible Devotions page to learn more about DISC.
I also have a book that explains DISC and helps you to not only understand children but adults as well.
The book explains DISC and then shares prayers for your children.
A Closing Word
A tender heart is gentle and warm.
A hard heart
leads to a cold heart.
