Dear Lord,

Thank you for my wife. I am so thankful that I have a best friend to experience life with. You know the details of our marriage Lord, and you know that we often times get frustrated with each other. Please help us to be merciful and forgiving towards one another. I especially pray that I would have grace with my wife. Remind me that no one is perfect, that my wife will not meet my every expectation, and that she will be the source of pain at times. Guard my heart and protect me, but also help me to love my wife unconditionally, just as you love me. I pray that you transform our hearts and draw us closer to you and closer to each other.

In Jesus’ name, AMEN!
