Dear Lord,

I have realized lately just how much I feel like I need to control everything. I understand that I can’t control everything and that I shouldn’t try. I need to trust you. I need to trust my wife. I need to relax and go with the flow of life, the ups and the downs, the small moments of joy and frustration…all of it. Please take away the part of my heart that begs for control and throws a fit without it. I pray that in my marriage I can let go of trying to control every little thing. Help me to trust in you.

In Jesus’ name, AMEN!
