Thank You, Father, for our marriage and life together. Lord, I still feel so new to married-life and know that there is so much more that I need to learn, but in Your strength, I pray that our love for each other and married life together will become one that glorifies You in all we do.
Lord, thank You for all You have been teaching me over the past months, that marriage is truly a giving partnership. Continue I pray, to open my eyes and my heart to what it really means to be married for life, for better or for worse.
Thank You for showing me the importance of not always expecting my own way, and I ask You to help me grow and develop into the sort of spouse You would have me be.
Keep us both from selfishness and self-seeking attitudes, and help each of us to honour the other above ourselves. Help us to love and to submit to the other in the truly biblical sense and to value the type of humility and gentleness that was seen in the life of the Lord Jesus Himself.
Keep us Lord, ever under Your wings of protection and may we be drawn ever closer to each other and to You day by day, as we seek to grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus together. I ask this in Jesus' name
