Short Prayer for My Wife

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.

Goodnight Prayer for My Wife

Good Night Prayer for My Love

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.

Short Daily Prayer for My Wife

Dear Lord,

Thank you for my wife. Thank you for the privilege of walking hand in hand on life’s journey with her. I pray that you would be like a cloak of love around her shoulders, that your truth would guide her every step, and that your hope would leap out of each new breath she takes. Come Lord and enfold her, lift her and guide her into goodness and grace. Each day may I know that you are with us, you are at work in our union and you are weaving your Kingdom into our lives.
