Thank You Lord for the gift of my dear wife – for Lord I know that good and virtuous woman is worth more than rubies and precious stones. Help me to be the husband that You would have me be – to encourage her and love her as Christ loved the church and to think of her needs and wishes before my own.
May I be a encouragement in her life and her covering of protection from the evils of this world. Help me to be sensitive to her needs – knowing that I have often not realised that some of my actions and attitudes have come across as uncaring….
Lord, teach me to be a good husband – a man that is prepared to lead and to listen – a man that is prepared to carry out my duties, both wisely and lovingly – for I desire to take on the role that You have ordained for me in our marriage, in a manner that is well-pleasing in Your sight, in Jesus name I pray,
How I praise You for the gift of my wife and pray Lord that day by day she may become mature in the faith - a holy woman of prayer that is growing in grace and in her knowledge of Her Saviour, day by day
Give her the inner strength to carry out her duties both at home and with others, through the power of the Holy Spirit and may her whole body, soul and spirit be kept blameless at the coming of our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Thank You for her deep love of the Lord Jesus and keep her I pray that she may be alert to the wiles of the evil one and remain in You. May she experience Your love for her and the peace and joy that comes from an intimate relationship with You. May the roots of her faith be secured on the Rock of her salvation as she abides in Christ and He in us.
Help us to be one in You and one with each other to Your praise and glory, for this we ask in the name of Jesus,
How I thank You for the love my wife has for our Lord and for the quiet strength she demonstrates in her prayerfulness. Thank You for the example she is to me and to others - of a woman who has placed Jesus at the rightful centre of her life, and home.
Lord there was a time when I did not understand and was a little confused, irritated and even jealous due to her prayer-life, but Lord thank You for showing me the amazing gift that I have received from You in the person of my praying wife – and also for the amazing grace and gift of prayer, that You have bestowed on her .
Lord just as her prayers have so often sustained me, (and others), as I have faced some of life’s difficulties, I now lift up my precious wife to You in grateful praise – asking that You would sustain her and encourage her in her prayer life – and be her rock and support, especially in those times when she may become weary of well-doing. Show me Lord how I may be supportive toward her and thank You Father for giving me my praying wife, in Jesus name I pray,
Heavenly Father, I pray for the wife that You have been gracious to give me and thank You for the wonderful institution of marriage where a man and a woman becomes one flesh.
Help me to cleave to my wife as You have instructed in Your word, and may we grow ever closer to each other and to You as we daily spend time in fellowship with one and other and in You presence, together.
May she grow strong in the Lord and in the power Your might and protect her mind and thoughts I pray, from the influences of the world. Help her to fix her heart and mind on the Lord Jesus and may she continue to place her full trust and hope in You .
Give her a gentle spirit and a tender heart and may she become more and more a woman … where her inner beauty shines out as the example of one who loves and fears the lord – and help me to be a good and loving husband so that together we witness to Your authority in our lives and marriage, in Jesus name I pray,
Heavenly Father, thank You for my wife and all that she means to me. Thank You for bringing such a good woman into my life to be my helper and friend as well as my lover and comfort.
Thank You for her love for You Lord and I pray that day by day our marriage may become stronger so that together we may grow in grace and that our mutual love for each other and for You may blossom into the marriage partnership that You desire for each of Your children.
Bless our lives together – and unite us in a closer bond of unity with each other so that together we may stand shoulder to shoulder as we carry out the life-work that You have given to us – to the glory of Your name.
Forgive us those times when we have allowed the niggles of life and the foolishness of our sin natures to sour the special relationship we have with each other, knowing that the enemy seeks to instil disunity in Christian lives and marriages but - rather help us to quietly and humbly apologise for our own short comings and change our thinking – so that we consider the needs of the other before our own- to the praise of Your name to speedily stand before Your name,
