Prayer for marriage ~ May

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of God's throne; PS 89:14. The preamble to the Australian constitution contains the words, "Humbly relying on the blessing of Almighty God".

A look at the management of many successful companies reveals that their leaders, whether Christian or not, maintain high ethical standards and deal fairly, often serving employees or customers first, and are good stewards of company finances.

Prayer for marriage ~ January

Matrimony and family are God’s design, and as divine institutions there are no substitutes. Fundamentally, our global cultures and societies need a moral counter-revolution.Families have never been as fragmented as they are today, and our modern culture continues to wear away at the core unit of society. People are treated as commodities through media eg parents are encouraged to show their love for their children by buying gifts for them; the image of 'father' is denigrated and their role reduced to financial provider; the role of 'mothers' is demeaned.Satan knows that if he can destroy marriages, and thus [...]

Prayer for marriage ~ December

This month's prayer focus is on sports and recreation. For some sport has become a god to which much has been sacrificed - time, money, integrity, family to name but a few.

In themselves sport and physical recreation are good things when used to take part in exercising bodies and minds, competing or supporting and encouraging those who do. Recreation lets people bond in a non-threatening [...]

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”—
I Corinthians 13: 4-8
He (Jesus) answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?
Matthew 19: 4-5
