Bible Verses for Couples Before Bed
What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate. – Mark 10:9
In Mark 10:9, Jesus speaks about the sanctity of marriage and relationships, and how humans should not try to break apart what God has joined together.
For couples, this verse is a reminder of the commitment they have made to each other. In good times and in bad, they have promised to stick together. This verse can help to give couples strength when they are going through difficult times. It is also a reminder that, no matter what happens, they will always be connected to each other.
Reading this verse before bed can help couples to remember their commitment to each other and to God. It can also help to give them peace of mind, knowing that their relationship is built on a firm foundation. Any kind of prayer for love or relationships should be offered with this in mind.
Be angry, and yet do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger – Ephesians 4:26
In a perfect world, couples would never argue. However, the reality is that even the strongest relationships are occasionally tested by conflict. When disagreements arise, it’s important to remember that anger is a normal and healthy emotion. A simple midnight prayer shared as you go to sleep at night can help keep both of you close.
As scripture tells us, we should be angry and yet not sin. In other words, we should express our anger in a constructive way, without resorting to name-calling or hurtful words.
If you’ve ever heard the cliche advice of not going to bed angry? The Bible is where this advice really comes from.
