A Prayer of a Husband for His Wife
Loving Father in heaven. I lift my heart in worship and praise to you.
I praise you for your faithfulness and your unfailing love.
You are our guide and your arms of love surround us day by day.
Thank you so much for my wife. You have created her in your image. I thank you for her love and her giftedness. I think of the many ways I have been blessed through her. Thank you for that.
I pray that you would help her to draw near to you so she would experience peace, strength and guidance from you. And as she draws near to you let the fruit of the Spirit grow in her life in abundance – the love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control as we read about it in Galatians 5:22-23. Help her to find time to read your word and then to share her concerns with you in prayer. May she realize that this will give her the strength she needs to face her daily tasks.
You remind us in your word that the adorning of a woman should be the inner, “hidden person of the heart with the imperishable jewel of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious”. 1 Peter 3:3. Help her to focus on having this inner beauty that is so precious to you.
I pray too that she would choose to fill her mind with thoughts that are honorable, just, pure, lovely, gracious, things of excellence and worthy of praise as we read in Phil 4:8 for we know how our thoughts have an impact on our words and our actions.
I pray this in Jesus name, Amen.
