I come to You today in praise and thanksgiving for the gift of my husband. I thank You for the love he shows me and the ways in which he leads and protects our family. I ask that You would continue to bless our marriage, that the love between us would grow stronger each day and that You would give me the wisdom and patience to navigate the challenges that may come our way.
I pray that You would give my husband the strength and courage he needs to follow Your will, to be the man You have called him to be and to lead our family in a way that honors You. I pray that he would be a man of integrity, kindness, and compassion, and that he would have a heart for serving others.
I ask that You would guide my husband in the decisions he makes, that You would give him the wisdom to know Your will for his life, and the courage to follow it. I pray that You would protect him from all harm, both physically and spiritually.
Lord, I also ask that You would give me, as his wife, the grace to be a supportive and loving partner, the wisdom to be a good listener, and the kindness to be forgiving. I pray that You would give me the strength to stand beside my husband through good times and bad.
May You please hear my prayers and bless our family. I trust in Your faithfulness and Your love for us.
I give You all the honor and glory, in Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 ESV
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Colossians 3:18-19 ESV
Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.
1 Peter 3:7 ESV
Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.
