Almighty God, I give you all the praise and glory as I worship You in spirit and in truth. Thank You that I have the honor of praising You at my convenience, without limitations.
As I come humbly before Your throne of Grace, where I obtain mercy, I pray that my journey in married life, would be renewed and restored to new heights, in the matchless and wonderful name of Jesus Christ.
Ecclesiastes 4:12 – Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 – Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.
Stress in my marriage
Heavenly Father, quite often I am faced with the stresses of life that often make my marriage feel burdensome. In the past I’ve lost my inner peace and struggled with issues of trust.
I hate the person I have since become. Help me Abba to love myself again. I love and adore my husband and I yearn to be the wife You created me to be, one who my husband would truly love, admire and cherish.
Ephesians 4:2-3 – with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
Colossians 3:14 – But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.
Praying for understanding and wisdom
I ask Lord that You fill me daily with Your Holy Presence. Give me wisdom and understanding and enrich my heart with patience, love, compassion, peace and unity.
Motivate me to always speak words of encouragement to my husband. I trust that there will be complete honesty and open communication in our relationship and it will grow stronger each day.
I pray Father that our emotional and physical connection will be to each other only. When I fall short on areas of intimacy, connect me to my husband in that special way and bind us together, in love, with cords that cannot be broken.
1 Peter 4:8 – And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”

Peter 3:1-4 – Wives, likewise,be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear. Do not let your adornment be merely outward – arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel – rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.
