I recently got asked to speak a declaration over marriages at a women’s meeting, I decided to share this blessing 🙂
I declare and decree you will have a marriage that includes two equally yoked partners (2 Corinthians 6:14) walking in righteousness, saved by the blood of Jesus, protected by God and led by the Holy Spirit. You will always walk in the light of truth with each other and wickedness will have no place in your marriage (2 Corinthians 6:14). Let God empower you to receive all of the blessings and to walk in the intentions of the perfect one-flesh union He intended (Genesis 2:22-24). No man will ever separate you because God has joined you together (Mark 10:9) and when trials come, the Lord will deliver you from them all. (Psalm 34:19)
I declare and decree that you will be a wise woman who builds up her house (Proverbs 14:1). You will be a woman of noble character who is a peacemaker (Proverbs 12:14, Romans 14:19). You will be a trustworthy wife who respects her husband and is good to him all the days of your life, submitting to Him as to the Lord (Proverbs 31: 11-12, Colossians 3:18)
I declare and decree that your husband will walk in integrity and will speak the truth (Titus 2:7-8). He will be a husband that honors you, being gentle, understanding and offering grace when needed (1 Peter 3:7, Colossians 3:19). He will unite with you fully and love you as Christ loves the church (Ephesians 5:22-33).
I declare and decree you will love and care for each other in the ways God intended. You will be patient, kind, truthful, and protective of each other. There will be no room for envy, anger or selfishness in your marriage; you will not keep records of wrongs (1Corinthians 13:4-8). You will hate what is wrong, hold tightly to what is right and honor each other by loving with genuine affection. (Romans 12:9-10).
I declare and decree that your marriage bed will be honored and be kept pure (Hebrews 13:4) You will be lovers and your desires will be only for each other. (Song of Solomon 7:10) You shall share a healthy sexual relationship where you can be naked and unashamed (Genesis 2:25). Your bodies will belong only to each other and you will mutually meet each others sexual needs respectfully and in love, never withholding from each other so there is no room for temptation to enter (1 Corinthian 7:1-7). You will share the same desire and love for one another always (Philippians 2:2).
I declare and decree that you will both be united in your passions, goals and love for each other and that you will walk in humility, putting each other first. I come against spirits of selfishness, conceit, confusion and apathy in Jesus Name; they are not God’s plan for you. (Philippians 2:1-4) You will both have patience with each other, having open ears to hear the heart of what is said, not just the words spoken, taking no offense and being slow to anger (James 1:19) Your mouths will speak edifying life to your marriage, you will have grace with each other and walk in the good fruit from the words that you speak (Proverbs 18:21, Ephesians 4:29).
I declare and decree that you will be a couple who continually prays, worships, and praises the Lord together (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18). When you join together in prayer, the Lord will be present (Mathew 18:20). He will hear all of your requests and you will trust in the Lord to meet all of your needs (Philippians 4:19). You will abound in knowledge and discern between good and evil (Philippians 1:9-10), recognizing that your battle is spiritual and not against each other (2 Corinthians 10:3-4, Ephesians 6:12), praying together, trusting the Lord (1 John 5:14-15).
