Dear Lord, I come before You praying for my wife, the beloved one I have committed my life to, the one I have pledged before You to be faithful to until the day You call one of us home to You. Help me to never take one minute of having her as my wife for granted. Thank You for allowing me to have her as my wife, my partner, my lover, my best friend, my protector, my defender, my encourager, my prayer warrior, and my constant comforter.
Help me to strive daily to understand her, to meet her needs, to be attentive to her, to unconditionally love her, and to serve her. Help me to never neglect to give her what she needs. May I love her with a I Corinthians 13 kind of love. May I never miss an opportunity to show her and tell her of my love. May I lovingly and spiritually lead her in the ways of God by opening up God’s Word and praying with her.
Lord, I pray that You will grant favor to my wife. I pray that she will have a passion for You and Your Word; that she would demonstrate her faith in the way she lives her life both inside and outside the home. I pray Your hedge of protection around her that no harm or injury would come upon her in any way physically, emotionally, spiritually, relationally, verbally, or mentally.
I pray that You would grant her daily wisdom and discernment, to know what to do and what to say and what not to do and what not to say. May she always be respected because she keeps her word. I pray for strong, godly female relationships in her life including younger women, women around her age, and older women, helping each other strive for godliness. Give her boldness when it comes to sharing her faith with others. And Lord please help her stay in love with me as a result of my following Your plan for our marriage and my continually pursuing her heart. Lord, please help me to never attempt to be controlling of her.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
