A prayer for the months of September and October

Father God, we praise you that we are fearfully and wonderfully made in your image, male and female, to live for your glory and the honour of your name. 

We thank you for the gift of marriage, your plan for the nurture of children and the health of our society. We pray for our nation, as it contemplates overturning your good design for men and women. 

Give us courage to serve you without fear as we declare your truth for the good of all Australians. 

Give us wisdom and grace as we seek to persuade our friends and family that God’s way is best. 

Grant us humility, compassion and steadfastness when we encounter views to the contrary.

May you be pleased to bless our nation so that marriage remains as the union of a husband and wife, in accordance with your purposes and the benefit of all. 

We ask this in the name of your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ.

Amen
