Prayer For A Good Wife

Dear Lord, Show me how to be a better husband. Sometimes I feel that I have lost the love of my wife. We are so often stressed and tired by daily life. We struggle to find the energy to care for each other. Help us to find the excitement and chemistry of our love again. Help us to connect afresh and communicate better. Inspire my heart to be the first to initiate. Inspire my thoughts to surprise her with attention. I give you the hurt I feel inside sometimes. I ask for forgiveness for the times my words or actions hurt her. With you we can always find new beginnings. With you we can remember the good times and renew our love together. You know us both as individuals and as a couple. You are journeying with us in our marriage. Guide us through this season of difficulty into the warmth of summer. Guide our lives to find new adventures to share together. Remind us both of our first love for each other. Remind me to be the first to forgive, The first to love and the first to act. That she may again fall in love with me. Amen.

Father, Watch over my beloved wife Keep her safe Sing songs of love to her soul Fill her heart Renew her with health and strength Hold her steady Inspire her mind with hope Guide her footsteps Bless her day with happiness and laughter Thank you for her Amen

Dear Father, I love my wife; she is a gift and a treasure to me. I pray that you would follow my wife with goodness and blessing. Fill her with joy in the good times we share. Shower her with good gifts as she gives out to others. Hear her when she cries out in prayer. You love her more, she's your child and precious to you. Please keep my wife safe in your care. Amen.

Lord, THANK YOU for sending me such an incredible partner, best friend and wife. Next to your grace, her love is the greatest gift in my life. Please never let me take her for granted. Help me to love, cherish, respect, adore, and protect her the way that she deserves. I know she's not only my wifeShe's YOUR daughter, and you've trusted me to be her husband. Please help me to love her the way that you love her; being willing to lay down my life for her the way you have done for us.

Father, we live in a world where your daughters are being objectified and used as images for lust and selfish gratification. Please help me keep my eyes and my heart pure in a world of sin and exploitation. Help me have eyes only for my wife. Give her the confidence to know that she'll never have to compete for my attention against an airbrushed image of another woman. Let her know that I'm now and always captivated by her inner beauty and her outer beauty as well.

Please keep her away from the Comparison Trap that would tempt shatter her confidence and replace it with insecurity. Help her know she doesn't need to compare her life or her accomplishments to anyone else's because your plan for her is masterfully unique. Help me to be her biggest encourager and never her biggest critic. Give me the words to say when she needs encouragement and give me the wisdom to know when to shut up and be quiet when she just needs me to listen.

Help me to support her dreams and passions to propel her to achieving all you have for her. For all she will achieve, please don't let her fall into the trap of believing her identity is wrapped up in achievements (or failures), but her identity is secured in your love for her. Never let her lose sight of the fact that she's eternally loved by you and let her find strength in my love for her as well.

Fill her heart with joy. Let laughter fill the soundtrack of our life together. Even in the difficult seasons, help us choose joy as we're reminded that our struggles are temporary, but because of you Lord, our joy will be eternal. Help me be strong for her on the days she's feeling weak, and help her be strong for me on the days I'm feeling weak, and Lord, please give us both strength for all that's ahead. Help us to NEVER lose faith in you or give up on each other.

Thank you, Lord, for my amazing wife! She's a priceless gift to be treasured, and I pray that you'd help me to be a gift to her as well. Please give me the wisdom, courage and strength to be the best husband I can be today and everyday. In Jesus name, Amen.


I lay at your feet all that I thought being a wife was meant to be. I have grabbed the steering wheel and almost crashed this thing a few too many times.

I repent of my tendency to control my husband. God, You were right (You always are) when You warned of this back at the beginning in the garden. Satan hates marriage, and He has mocked us long enough. I refuse to control my husband; I resist the temptation to do so, and I receive Your loving help to show me a better way.

I choose to respect him, and to reflect that respect in my words, tone, and demeanor.

Teach me to be grateful for him and to sincerely enjoy him. May my eyes display delight in my husband.

May my words empower and encourage him, always build up and never tear down. Help me to notice all the things he does well and to show my gratitude. Please keep me from the tendency to nitpick and nag and find things to complain about!

Teach me the ins and outs of how You have wired him, the nuances of his temperament. Help me accommodate those tendencies and adapt myself to him. Rid me of the tendency to expect him to think like me! Forgive me for this narcissistic view that my perspective is The Perspective.

Lord, make us a leadership team that understands and respects each other's roles. Deliver me from being quarrelsome, irritable and ugly.

Ultimately, I cannot expect You to make all these things happen without my cooperation; Your grace is what I need, yet there is effort on my part to work with Your Spirit and to allow Him to transform my mind through Your Word. So open up Your Word to me and change me from the inside out! Make me a wife that will make You smile. And make my husband smile!

In Jesus' Name,

Lord, You said that it is not good for man to be alone. We ask You to listen to the hearts looking for a life partner. Put their yearning for marriage in the right perspective.

Lead them to the one You choose and reveal Your plans for them so that they prepare themselves better. Lord, teach and guide them to seek You first and to learn to give love more than expecting to receive it.

Help them to remember that whatever journey their life leads them on, You are always present, always offering companionship, and always filling their deepest need.

Almighty Father, We pray for all those waiting and searching for life partners. You know the deep longings of their hearts and You know what is best for them in life. Lord, help them as they desire a good companion in life.

If it is Your will, guide them Lord, to the partner You have chosen for them. Give them the wisdom and direct them in their pursuit to choose the right person.

Everyone deserves a loving and God-fearing partner, for a happy life. We ask You to remove all obstacles in their way and perfect everything for them.

O Jesus, lover of the young, the dearest Friend I have, in all confidence I open my heart to You to beg Your light and assistance in the important task of planning my future. Give me the light of Your grace, that I may decide wisely concerning the person who is to be my partner through life. Dearest Jesus, send me such a one whom in Your divine wisdom You judge best suited to be united with me in marriage. May her/his character reflect some of the traits of Your own Sacred Heart. May s/he be upright, loyal, pure, sincere and noble, so that with united efforts and with pure and unselfish love we both may strive to perfect ourselves in soul and body, as well as the children it may please You to entrust to our care. Bless our friendship before marriage, that sin may have no part in it. May our mutual love bind us so closely, that our future home may ever be most like Your own at Nazareth.

O Mary Immaculate, sweet Mother of the young, to your special care I entrust the decision I am to make as to my future wife/husband. You are my guiding Star! Direct me to the person with whom I can best cooperate in doing God's Holy Will, with whom I can live in peace, love and harmony in this life, and attain to eternal joys in the next.
