Praying the Psalms with Luther

READ: Ezekiel 30-32 Psalm 128 Hebrews 4:1-6:8

The 128thPsalm is Psalm of comfort in which the estate of marriage is splendidly praised. Marriage partners are given this great comfort: they should not look only at the trouble, work, and at times discouragement they feel and experience in marriage, but rather look at the gracious will of God toward them. Therefore, marriage is dear to Him, and gives it much more happiness than one would expect.

PRAY: Thanks to You, our God, for instituting the holy estate of matrimony and preserving it for many ages against the assaults of that apostate spirit which is an enemy of all that is pure and godly. Make every house Your temple. Fashion the hearts of husband and wife to love children, and cause both parents and children to walk in the faith of Your Son, and be saved. Amen.
