Prayers for my wife

The page contains two prayers for husbands to pray for their wives. The first prayer is appropriate to say as a morning prayer for her protection and care, and the second is for when you sense that your relationship with your wife might be in difficulty. It is a request for God's guidance and forgiveness, and a prayer for love and new adventures to return to the relationship.

Prayer for Protection

A short contemporary blessing for God's protection and care:-

Prayer for my wife to love me

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.
