1 Corinthians 11:3 (NIV)

But I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man,[a] and the head of Christ is God.

Father in Heaven, thank you for the gift of marriage.  You have made my life complete by giving me a man who understands and loves me the way I am. I pray that my husband will always depend on You in every decision that he makes. May he always put You first in every aspect of his life, especially our marriage. Lord, I pray that he will learn to know you more and more each day as he faces triumphs, trials, and hardships.  Mold him to be the man that You planned him to be.  Give him the patience and the courage to lead our family, a family that honors You. All these I ask in Jesus Name. Amen.

I pray that You will protect my family from any harm and danger. If there is any conflict, misunderstanding, impatience, or problems in our family, may You teach us to forgive, to love and to respect each other.  May our family ties be strengthened and blessed by You, O Lord.  I pray that every member of my family be an instrument for Your glory and honor.  You are the foundation and the pillar of this family, Almighty Father.

Thank you for Your precious gift of salvation, through Your Son – Jesus Christ, who is the Head of this family. In His name I pray. Amen.
