A Prayer For A Wife's Role In Her Marriage

Gracious heavenly Father, help me to love You first, with all my heart, with all my soul and with all my mind. I am Yours before I am my husband's, and I love and honor him because I love and honor You.

Let me not be jealous, not boastful, not self-seeking, but patient, kind, always trusting, hoping and persevering. My husband is my heart, and I want to show him this every day. Please help me to treat him the way I want him to treat me.

Enable me to be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger. I desire these traits in my character so that I can prevent communication problems before they begin. Let my words be kind, uplifting and full of Your truth. Keep me from speaking lies, half-truths and exaggerations.

Help me to learn to be content in whatever my circumstances, so that I can treasure my marriage, my home and my husband as blessings from God Himself. You have blessed us beyond measure, and I thank You now for what You've already done for us, what You're doing right now and what You already have planned for our future.

In whatever trials we face in our life together, help me to consider it pure joy because I know that the testing of my faith produces perseverance. You have not promised that our path will be easy, but You have promised to be with us as a three-fold cord that cannot be broken. I will focus on You each step of the way.

Help me to cultivate inner beauty, one that is gentle and quiet in spirit. Let my gentleness be evident to all, especially to my husband. Encourage me to love him, respect him and pray for him as my daily priorities.

Let me put away all bitterness and be kind, tenderhearted and forgiving as Christ forgave me. Only then will I be able to be all that You have called me to be as a wife. Don't allow the trials of life to harden my heart, but soften it and fill it with love and compassion for my husband and those around me.

May Your peace, which passes all understanding, guard my heart and my mind in Christ Jesus. Peace in my heart will translate into peace in my home, in my marriage and in my everyday life. Stir up my heart to build our home, not treat it down, and Your peace and hope will make that possible.

In the quiet times, help me think about whatever is true, honest, just, pure, lovely and of good report. I will take every thought captive so my mind is focused on you. Help me to hear your voice above the noise of the world, shutting out any confusion that would stand in the way of following You.

As I begin a new week, let me always remember that Your grace is sufficient for whatever comes my way. All these things I pray in the precious and holy name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
