Biblical Prayers for My Wife

1. That I love my wife as I love myself—resisting the natural temptation to be selfish—and that my wife respects me and the authority God has given me over her and our family (Ephesians 5:33).

2. That my wife submits to me in everything as to the Lord, and that what I ask of her is what Christ would want me to ask of her (Ephesians 5:22-24).

3. That I love my wife as Christ loves the church:  in a sacrificial, purifying, and caring, protective manner (Ephesians 5:25-32).

4. That I not become harsh or embittered against my wife (Colossians 3:19)—and that my wife is careful not to tempt me to be so.

5. That my wife demonstrates purity, reverence, and a gentle and quiet spirit in her life, not a fearful or negative attitude (1 Peter 3:1-6).

6. That I be a considerate and chivalrous partner in life with my wife, dwelling with her in such an understanding way that I give no reason for my prayers to be hindered (1 Peter 3:7).

7. That my wife and I devote ourselves to satisfying one another physically, emotionally, socially, and mentally with great joy and enthusiasm for life (1 Corinthians 7:3-5; Proverbs 5:15-19).
