He 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’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.” Matthew 19:4-6

Marriage is Important

The benefits of marriage, as established by many social researchers through to the present time, are widely and regularly published. We present some of these in “Some Benefits of Marriage” but here we look at the Importance of Marriage primarily from the perspective of Scripture.

God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:27)
Right from the start God made men and women equal, in “the image of God” but with complimentary differences as men and women.

On the creation of man God placed him in the garden and gave him His vision for life in the world that He, God had created. God then saw that something was incomplete and said “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him” (Genesis 2:18). God saw that it was not good for the first man, and for most of us, to be left by himself. God then created/crafted woman out of the rib of that first man ( Genesis 2:21-22). God presented and entrusted this remarkable gift to the man. God had instituted what we know as marriage. A man and a woman becoming one new entity and, as we are told later being “one flesh”. That entity of one man and one woman being the fundamental human relationship in God’s created world. This human relationship being the basis for family — a relationship that is there ahead of the parent-child relationship.

Prayer for Families ~ January

Thank God for families. They are the bedrock of both society and of the church.
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’ has denigrated and their role reduced to financial provider; the role of ‘mothers’ has been demeaned. Satan knows that if he can destroy marriages, and thus the family, he can destroy the very fabric of any society.

  • Decree that marriage will remain the foundation of the family unit.(Gen(9:7) Pray against the covenant-breaking spirit which manifests as divorce and open marriage.
  • Pray against abortion, transgenderism and euthanasia and declare that the Family Mountain will stand for life. Gen 1:27, Ps 139 13-16.
  • Renounce family curses from previous generations and release blessings upon the next generation.
  • Please pray for those families and marriages affected in any way by drought, imprisonment, floods, Covid19 and fire – their ongoing needs are many – including people’s finances, employment/livelihood, businesses, homes, health, access to services and support and relationships, which can all suffer. Thank God that so many have been moved selflessly to reach out to them.
  • Give thanks for the many testimonies of the power […] Read More

“God is guiding your marriage. Marriage is more than your love for each other. It has a higher dignity and power, for it is God’s holy ordinance, through which He wills to perpetuate the human race till the end of time.
In your love you see only your two selves in the world, but in marriage you are a link in the chain of the generations, which God causes to come and to pass away to His glory, and calls into His kingdom. In your love you see only the heaven of your own happiness, but in marriage you are placed at a post of responsibility towards the world and mankind. Your love is your own private possession, but marriage is more than something personal—it is a status, an office. Just as it is the crown, and not merely the will to rule, that makes the king, so it is marriage, and not merely your love for each other, that joins you together in the sight of God and man.”

Dietrich Bonhoeffer
