Prayer for 1 Peter 3

Heavenly Father, thank You for the wonderful way that You ordained marriage, and implemented the governance of the individual home, where a wife is submissive to her husband – as head of the family. May Christian husbands and wives be ready and willing to follow Scripture’s clear instructions on marriages, and live as You ordained, from the beginning – for Your greater praise and glory. We pray for the salvation of many unsaved men, who are the husbands of Christian women – and pray, that in Your grace, their godly conduct will attract their husbands into a saving faith in the Lord Jesus, in Whose name we pray, AMEN.

“Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;”

Loving Father, let me not be swayed by the vanity of the world but clothe myself in humility of heart and gentleness of spirit, and may I reflect the beauty of the Lord Jesus in all I say and do - to His praise and glory, in His name I pray, AMEN.

“Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;”

Heavenly Father, I pray that I would let the hidden person of my heart produce the beautiful fruit of the Spirit, which is so precious in Your sight. Prevent me from developing ostentatious behaviours, that are so unseemly and help me to seek after the imperishable qualities of a gentle and quiet spirit. I pray that Christian women everywhere would recognise the eternal value of growing in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus and pray that in my own marriage and relationships I would honour You in spirit and in truth - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

“But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.”

Heavenly Father, thank you for the wise instructions Peter gives on the role of husbands and wives in his extended passage on godly conduct within Christian marriages. We hold up Christian couples throughout the world and pray that both husbands and their wives would seek to honour one another in their complimentary roles. May wives be ready and willing to submit to their husbands just as Christ submitted his life to His heavenly Father and we pray that husbands would fulfil their God-given order as the head of the family and show love and understanding to their wife and demonstrate to a fallen world the beauty of God's order. This we ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

“Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.”

Heavenly Father, thank You that there is nothing in earth or heaven, visible or invisible that can separate us from Your love - for those that are in Christ Jesus.

Heavenly Father, I thank You that I have been redeemed by the blood of Christ, and my desire is to be fully sanctified unto Him, and to offer my body as a living sacrifice - holy and acceptable unto God. Guard my heart and guide my speech I pray.. and give me wisdom to be able to give an answer for the hope that is in me.. and to give a defence for my trust in Christ and the blessed hope that I have in Him. And Lord, I pray that by the power of Your Holy Spirit that I would be able to answer everyone, who asks me about my faith in Christ - in gentleness and reverence - to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.

Thank You Father that Christ was wiling to suffer in my place, for my sins. Thank You that He was willing to lay down His life for me, so that by His death He could bring me to God. Thank You that His work on the cross is finished and that there is nothing that I need to do - but to believe on His name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, thank You for the wonderful truth that because I am IN Christ I have been saved from the fierce “baptism of fire”, which is reserved for those who do not believe in the only begotten Son of God. Thank You for the illustration of Noah, who remained safe IN the Ark from the destructive flood-waters of judgement and that I have been “baptised into Christ’s body” by the power of the Spirit and am identified with His death, burial and resurrection. Thank You that His death became MY death and His burial became MY burial and that through Christ’s resurrection, I have a received a good conscience before God. May I walk daily in newness of life for Your honour and glory – this I ask in Jesus’ name, AMEN.

“The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:”
