Marriage Prayer

"God help me and forgive me for being much more interested in my own good rather than my husband's good, and failing to contribute to my husband's blessing. Lord, how can I respond in such a way as to bind us together in deeper harmony and deeper unity in Jesus Christ? Lord, show me what I can do to make my husband's life as easy and as pleasant as I can."  ~taught to me by Elisabeth Elliot

I insert my husband's name everywhere it says "my husband" and have this prayer written out on a card. At one time—for years actually—I had this prayer along with other prayers for my husband up on a bulletin board in my closet where no went except me for quiet time with a small lamp, my Bible and a note pad. Now I sit at the kitchen table with my Bible, and have the prayers I want to pray written down loosely placed in a folder. If the weather is nice, I sit on the back porch. The place doesn't matter. What matters is getting alone with God to read His word and pray.

I like to pray the above prayer along with the "I'll Take Him" prayer that I gave you in a recent blog.

Stay with me, as we continue in this marriage blog series for practical ways we can demonstrate our faith in Christ—specifically by the kind of a wives we are becoming.
Walk by Faith,
