Prayer for Husbands and Wives
God of all order and concord, when You created man and woman. You also established the covenant of marriage. It is Your will that a husband and wife be faithful to each other and build each other up with the kindness and gentleness that comes from Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit. Inspire husbands and wives to joyfully make sacrifices for the benefit of their spouses. Remove selfishness, pettiness, impatience, hostility, and irresponsibility from all marriages, and grant all couples unity, peace, commitment, harmony, delight, and encouragement. Bring healing to hurting marriages, and give continued stability to marriages You have already made strong by Your sharing love. In Jesus name. Amen.
