A Wife's Prayer

Dear God,

Help me to be the kind of wife You want me to be.

Help me to be a good listener, to give my husband my full attention so that I will be well aware of his concerns and needs.

Help me to pay attention to the advice my husband gives me when I may be doing things wrong or that I could be doing things better, even though he sometimes gives me weird advice.

Help me to be more aware to please my husband than to have my own way.

Help me to be aware of the things that I do that upset my husband—and enable me not to keep doing them that I sometimes do—so that I will not cause unnecessary problems in our relationship.

Help me to treat my husband better than when we were first met and remind me of the importance of spending quality time alone with him and not keeping myself busy with my own stuff, and of doing things to remind him of how special he is to me as how he does to me.

Help me not to jump to wrong conclusions about my husband's crazy motives—that he normally does—and enable me to think the best of him at all times.

Help me to apologize and set things straight when I complain, falsely accuse, act selfishly, or say unkind or provoking words (even though he won’t understand it because I say it in my own language).

Help me to encourage him in every single thing he does, no matter how ridiculous it is.

Help me to be a great example of what a loving, understanding, caring, and self-sacrificing wife should be.

Help me to realize that it is my job to be an example of a mature and godly wife, and not an example of a disrespectful and selfish wife.

Help me to be joyful in spite of my circumstances and help me to avoid whining and complaining when things do not go my way.

Help me to admit my faults, to apologize when I am wrong, and to be aware to heal wounds that I may have caused in my relationship with my husband.

Help me to realize that is far better to get my husband to do things I want him to do because he loves me and not because I nag him.

Help me to never forget that You gave me my husband to be a helpmate and best friend and may I never think of him as an enemy or an obstacle.

Make me the kind of wife who my husband will never regret having married and even more than that, make me the kind of wife who is a happiness for my husband to be around with, and who my husband will be proud to call his wife, a woman who honors him and who honors You.
