A prayer of the husband

“Dear Father in Heaven, I declare a holy war against my lusts. I have chosen the sure weapon of your enduring love. I have been designed to love. Away with the infernal selfish pleasure that betrays my loyalty to my God and wife! Away with each thought that would lead me into its condemned and greedy claws! Your time is gone.

I choose to love a pure love. I choose to live with a holy focus on my wife. I want with my love to penetrate the dark doors of death and confusion. With my constant and dedicated commitment to my wife I want to strip away all the fears and doubts that have been laid on her poor soul.

God fill me with your Spirit. Cleanse my soul of sin for your calling is high and lofty. Grant that I may live fully devoted to my specially chosen woman. I have only one wife. I want only one wife. By your divine grace and example, I will give her and her alone my constant care as long as we both shall live.

And now, Lord I ask that you would protect what is so great and beautiful. Lift up what is glorious so that hope, joy and love can again touch our miserable hearts. Let me join this race to run for your glory and nothing else. Lead me, Lord, with your precious example into a constant and flowing river of giving acts and words toward my wife. May I be pure, loyal and responsible. And may the glorious love of God be revealed on earth in and through my love for my wife. By the grace and blood of Christ, God's only Son, I pray. Amen.”

Father, thank you for all you give me each and everyday. Thank you for the opportunities and trials. Thank you for the blessings and the lessons. Thank you for the many chances to get things right. Father thank you for your Son, Jesus. Thank you so much for my beautiful wife and our fantastic children. Thank you for our marriage and our family. I have been truly blessed and they are all such wonderful gifts from you.

Lord, I know I messed things up in the past when I didn’t know you. Lord I know I hurt my wife through my actions and words, but you know that was never my intent. You know my heart and the deep love I have for her. You know my heart and the deep changes you have made to it. You know I am and will be the husband you want me to be and that she deserves to have. I know that she can be the wife you want her to be.

I pray that you will touch her heart and lead her to you. That she will begin to have a wonderful and intimate relationship with you. The changes you make to our hearts when we truly surrender our wills and open them to you is nothing short of miraculous. It leads us to change what we want, realize what we need, and long to do the right thing. I allows us to love, the way you love us, deeply and unconditionally, an agape love. Wash her heart clean Lord. Fill her with your love and your spirit. Take away any pain, anger, hurt, pride, or unforgiveness that she may have towards anyone. Lead us both closer to you. Bring us back together as you have for so many others.

Your word shows us that your will is that you want ourmarriage to survive and flourish, that we are to remain together and submit to each other, and that we are to look at our marriage as a gift. That I am to be a husband to my

wife in the way that you are to the Church, laying down my life for her. Please show her the changes you have made in me, the love I have for you and for her, and that I am the husband you want me to be. I love her more each and every day, and see her through your eyes. To me she is the most beautiful woman in the world, and with her by my side, there could never be another.

I pray that you will heal and restore our marriage and reunite this family in your perfect timing.

I pray all of this in the name and through the cleansing blood of Christ Jesus – Amen
