Husbands and Wives

I will exalt You, Lord, for You lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me.  Lord, You are my God, I called to You for help, and You healed me.  You , Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead; You spared me from going down to the pit. Sing the praises of the Lord, You his faithful people; praise His holy name. (Psa. 30:1-4)

Heavenly Father I praise You for the answer prayer of getting a heart for seven year old Trinity and letting the surgery be a success.  We continue to lift her in prayer that her healing will become complete.  Let her body fully accept this heart, let this heart fully wake up and work as it was created by You to do.  Help her to get back to full strength and health.  Touch her little body and fully heal it.  Help her family during this difficult transitioning time. Protect all of them from all other diseases and viruses while they are at the hospital.

Holy Spirit help us husbands to love our wives unconditionally. To remember our wife from the first day we met her.  Help us to lift her up in prayer daily and to put our faith in her to be our help mate.  Help us to never take our wife for granted. Help us to only expect that our wife will love us and be supportive to us in our times of need and that she will walk this life with us and share in our dreams, disappointments, and any trials we face we do it together.  Help us to truly listen to our wives, listen to their hearts, their anxieties and what brings them joy.  Help us to be responsive to this. Help us to never put them down publically and to always talk about them in a good light.  Let our pride and love abound whenever we talk about them or introduce them to others.  Help us to give them a home they feel safe and secure in.  Help us to be the supportive. Let us honor You in front of them and our children.  Help us to be honest with our ideas, feelings, and goals.  Help us to realize we do this life with them not for them.  

Holy Spirit help us wives love our husbands unconditionally.  Help us to remember what made us begin to love them in the first place.  Help us to pray daily over our husbands and put our faith in them to be our help mate.  Let us never take our husband for granted .  Help us to be faithful, loyal and understanding of our husband.  Help us to stand beside them, not in front or behind, but beside them as we walk this path in life.  Help us to be a support when life gets hard.  Help us to be responsive to the Holy Spirit and give our husbands all of our understanding from the Holy Spirit when helping make decisions.  Help us to show respect for our husbands in public, never tearing them down to others.  Help us to create a safe and successful home where love, learning, and growing is common place.

I thank my God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given to you by Christ Jesus, that you were enriched in everything by Him in all utterance and all knowledge, even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you, so that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will also confirm you to the end, that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.  God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.—1Corinthians 1:4-9  Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.  For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.  If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. (2Corinthians 1:3-7)  In Jesus’ name, amen.
