The Power Of A Praying Wife
Lord, help me to be a good wife. I fully realize that I don’t have what it takes to be one without Your love. Take my selfishness, impatience, and irritability and turn them into kindness, long-suffering, and the willingness to bear all things. Take my old emotional habits, mindsets, automatic reactions, rude assumptions, and self-protectiveness, and make me patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle, and self-controlled.
Take the hardness of my heart and break down the walls with your battering ram of revelation. Give me a new heart and work in me Your love, peace and joy (Galations 5:22, 23). I am not able to rise above who I am at this moment. Only You can transform me.
The Power Of A Praying Husband
Lord, create in me a clean heart and renew a new spirit within me (Psalm 51:10). Show me where my attitude and thoughts are not what You would have them to be, especially toward my wife. Convict me when I am unforgiving, help me to quickly let go of any anger, so that confusion will not have a place in my mind. If there is behaviour in me that needs to change, enable me to make changes that last. Whatever You reveal to me, I will confess to You as sin. Make me a man after Your own heart. Enable me to be the head of my home and family just as You created me to be.
