Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body. But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless. Ephesians 5:22-27
Dear Lord and Heavenly Father,
Today I lift up to You all the husbands and wives. I pray that You would call them to live according to Your direction that our marriages would glorify You and point unbelievers to You.
I ask that You would work in the heart of all wives, that You would show them what it means to respect their husbands, to be subject to their husbands as the church is subject to Christ. I ask that You would likewise work in the heart of all husbands to show them what it means to love their wives as You love the church.
I pray that You would take away all our selfishness and pride and give us love for one another that You would be honored through our relationships.
In Your Name,
