Prayer For a Spouse Devotional
by Marijo Phelps 1/26/2010 / Devotionals
Lord Jesus, please help us to cherish each other with Your kind of love to respect and delight in and honor each other. Let us put an end to the "digs" and unkindnesses.
Help us to build up and not destroy. Unify us in "one flesh" with Your Spirit, Lord God. Help us, I pray!
Help my heart to repent. I don't want to be selfish, proud or reacting in a nasty, defensive way. I want to get rid of "high places" and totally yield to You in ALL areas of my life.
Father, please, at all times help us both to remember we are on the same team and it is only the enemy who would have us convinced otherwise. AMEN
1 Peter 3:7
Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers. (NIV)
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her (NIV)
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. (NIV)
and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh' (NIV)
and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one. (NIV)
