Spouses’ Prayer for Each Other

Lord Jesus,

Grant that I and my spouse may have a true
and understanding love for each other.

Grant that we may both
be filled with faith and trust.

Give us the grace to live
with each other in peace and harmony.

May we always bear with one another’s weaknesses
and grow from each other’s strengths.

Help us to forgive one another’s failings
and grant us patience, kindness, cheerfulness
and the spirit of placing the well-being
of one another ahead of self.

May the love that brought us together
grow and mature with each passing year.

Bring us both ever closer to You
through our love for each other.

Let our love grow to perfection.

Amen.

A Prayer for My Wife

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church— for we are members of his body. For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
~~ Ephesians 5:25-33

Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.
~~ Colossians 3:19

In the Lord, however, woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman.
~~ 1 Corinthians 11:11

Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.
~~ 1 Peter 3:7

Heavenly Father, help me to love my wife, Raquel, sacrificially, just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself for her:

— May I never be harsh toward her but instead honor and cherish her.
— May I always remember that I am not independent of her.
— Help me to understand and fulfill her needs.
— Inspire me to draw on her wisdom and strength.
— Lead me to treat her with tenderness and humility.
— Let me display an unselfish spirit at all times.

Faithful Father, strengthen Raquel and bless her daily with the joy of Your presence:

— Keep her safe by surrounding her with Your hedge of protection.
— Keep her clothed in Your armor and prepare her for each day’s battle.
— Give her the wisdom to perform on her job and be a witness for You.

Lord, I thank You so much for all that my wife does for me, and our family. Thank You for blessing me with such a wonderful companion, helpmate, and best friend.

In the name of Your Son, and our Savior, Jesus Christ,

Amen.

Happy Birthday Raquel

Raquel & Me

My Dearest Raquel,

May this day and all your days be filled with the wonder of God’s special love for you.

On your birthday, I pray for your happiness, of course, but also for a greater sense of fulfillment in work, and a sense of satisfaction in all that you have accomplished. Above all, may you rest secure in the knowledge of my unending devotion and God’s constant love.

On this your special day, I pray for you.
I pray for sunshine and warmth.
I pray for smiles and love.
I pray for friends that are true.
I pray for unexpected moments of joy and laughter.
But most of all, I pray for peace for you.

I am thinking of you on your birthday and holding you close to my heart. My prayer for you this day and everyday is for a sense of fulfillment, for confidence and enjoyment in all that makes you special, and for a deep and abiding peace within.

May God keep you in touch with all that you are and all that you are meant to be.

 

I am so blessed
To have a wife like you
Without you by my side
I don’t know what I’d do

Whenever I need
You’re there for me
A better wife
You couldn’t be

The love we share
Will always be strong
In my eyes
You can do no wrong

Love,
Les
