Lord, Help me to be a Good Wife.

Show me where there is sin in my heart, especially with regard to my husband.

I fully realize that I don’t have what it takes to be one without Your help.

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-protective stance, 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 (Galatians 5:22,23). I am not able to rise above who I am at this moment. Only You can transform me.

Show me where there is sin in my heart, especially with regard to my husband. I confess the times I’ve been unloving, critical, angry, resentful, disrespectful, or unforgiving toward him.

Help me to put aside any hurt, anger, or disappointment I feel and forgive him the way You do—totally and completely, no looking back.

Make me a tool of reconciliation, peace, and healing in this marriage. Enable us to communicate well and rescue us from the threshold of separation where the realities of divorce begin.

Make me my husband’s helpmate, companion, champion, friend, and support. Help me to create a peaceful, restful, safe place for him to come home to.

Teach me how to take care of myself and stay attractive to him. Grow me into a creative and confident woman who is rich in mind, soul, and spirit. Make me the kind of woman he can be proud to say is his wife.

I lay all my expectations at Your cross. I release my husband from the burden of fulfilling me in areas where I should be looking to You.

Help me to accept him the way he is and not try to change him. I realize that in some ways he may never change, but at the same time, I release him to change in ways I never thought he could.

I leave any changing that needs to be done in Your hands, fully accepting that neither of us is perfect and never will be. Only You, Lord, are perfect and I look to You to perfect us.

Teach me how to pray for my husband and make my prayers a true language of love. Where love has died, create new love between us. Show me what unconditional love really is and how to communicate it in a way he can clearly perceive.

Bring unity between us so that we can be in agreement about everything (Amos 3:3). May the God of patience and comfort grant us to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus (Romans 15:5).

Make us a team, not pursuing separate, competitive, or independent lives, but working together, overlooking each other’s faults and weaknesses for the greater good of the marriage.

Help us to pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another (Romans 14:19). May we be “perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment” (1 Corinthians 1:10).

I pray that our commitment to You and to one another will grow stronger and more passionate every day. Enable him to be the head of the home as You made him to be, and show me how to support and respect him as he rises to that place of leadership.

Help me to understand his dreams and see things from his perspective. Reveal to me what he wants and needs and show me potential problems before they arise. Breathe Your life into this marriage.

Make me a new person, Lord. Give me a fresh perspective, a positive outlook, and a renewed relationship with the man You’ve given me.

Help me see him with new eyes, new appreciation, new love, new compassion, and new acceptance. Give my husband a new wife, and let it be me.

Prayer to Overcoming Fear

Yes, we are living during perilous times in a dangerous and volatile world. This calls for the declaration of your faith—not your fears.

Again and again you read in God’s Word, be not afraid, do not fear, have no fear. God has not given you a spirit of fear; let not your heart be troubled.

Wait upon the Lord, take time to pray, listening for Him to speak. Read the Word of God, and meditate on His goodness and faithfulness. He is your Heavenly Father. The Holy Spirit is present to help and guide you.

Prayer to Overcoming Fear

Prayer:

My Father, You are my refuge, my strong tower, my safe place. Remember [earnestly] the fear and misery I have endured.

My soul is bowed down within me. But this I recall and therefore have I hope and expectation: it is because of Your mercy and loving-kindness that I am not consumed, because Your [tender] compassions fail not.

They are new every morning; great and abundant is Your stability and faithfulness. Surely You will deliver me from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence, in the name of Jesus.

Because I abide in You and Your Word abides in me, I ask for the good things that You have provided for me—salvation, deliverance, healing, prosperity, and health. Amen.
