1 JOHN 4:18 “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.”
Lord Jesus, You are love and Your love is flawless. You are our example of how to love and look beyond fault. You knew our sin fully, but did not hold it against us, allowing us to live free from fear because Your love is perfect. Lord, though our love will never be perfect, we ask that You would grow us in our ability to love each other in a way that would create a safe environment for us to be known and to be free from fear of judgment or resentment from each other that the enemy would love to create. Bind us together in Your perfect love and give us a supernatural ability to live openly before each other and before You. Thank You, Lord, for the freedom You will give us in our marriage as we commit to knowing each other fully and loving just the same.
