A Prayer By Vanessa Siroki
Heavenly Father, I pray each day that wives will walk in and have:
- The obedience of Mary (Jesus Mother)
- The Faith of Sarah and Rahab
- The boldness of Deborah
- The strength and humility of Ruth
- The dedication of Hannah
- The courage and determination of Esther
- Above all – The Mind of Christ
- And Father, I pray that today Your Holy spirit will enable wives according to Isaiah 11:2 and: “The spirit of the Lord shall rest upon (them), the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.” Father help wives to be Your virtuous daughters, walking in obedience to Your words and as the examples set forth in Titus 2. I pray that wives will never take matters in their hands like Eve, Jezebel or Delilah or be in the place like the women mentioned in Isaiah 3:12 and 4:1. But instead, that they aspire to live each day lives – totally centered on Christ and whatever problems or circumstances they may face. Father help wives to cast all cares upon the Lord who cares for them in Jesus Name Amen and Amen.
Prayer for Wife by Dave Willis “Marriage Today”
Lord, THANK YOU for sending me such an incredible partner, best friend and wife. Next to your grace, her love is the greatest gift in my life. Please never let me take her for granted. Help me to love, cherish, respect, adore, and protect her the way that she deserves. I know she’s not only my wife…She’s YOUR daughter, and you’ve trusted me to be her husband. Please help me to love her the way that you love her; being willing to lay down my life for her the way you have done for us.
Father, we live in a world where your daughters are being objectified and used as images for lust and selfish gratification. Please help me keep my eyes and my heart pure in a world of sin and exploitation. Help me have eyes only for my wife. Give her the confidence to know that she’ll never have to compete for my attention against an airbrushed image of another woman. Let her know that I’m now and always captivated by her inner beauty and her outer beauty as well.
Please keep her away from the “Comparison Trap” that would tempt shatter her confidence and replace it with insecurity. Help her know she doesn’t need to compare her life or her accomplishments to anyone else’s because your plan for her is masterfully unique. Help me to be her biggest encourager and never her biggest critic. Give me the words to say when she needs encouragement and give me the wisdom to know when to shut up and be quiet when she just needs me to listen.
Help me to support her dreams and passions to propel her to achieving all you have for her. For all she will achieve, please don’t let her fall into the trap of believing her identity is wrapped up in achievements (or failures), but her identity is secured in your love for her. Never let her lose sight of the fact that she’s eternally loved by you and let her find strength in my love for her as well.
Fill her heart with joy. Let laughter fill the soundtrack of our life together. Even in the difficult seasons, help us choose joy as we’re reminded that our struggles are temporary, but because of you Lord, our joy will be eternal. Help me be strong for her on the days she’s feeling weak, and help her be strong for me on the days I’m feeling weak, and Lord, please give us both strength for all that’s ahead. Help us to NEVER lose faith in You or give up on each other.
Thank you, Lord, for my amazing wife! She’s a priceless gift to be treasured, and I pray that You’d help me to be a gift to her as well. Please give me the wisdom, courage and strength to be the best husband I can be today and everyday. In Jesus name, Amen.
