4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
  -1 Corinthians 13:4-8 NIV
Father in Heaven, You loved us first, You showed us what love really means by giving Your only Son to die on the cross so that we can be with You for eternity for those who believe. Thank you for the gift of salvation. Thank you for loving me.
The world is portraying a different kind of love, a love that is careless, sinful, and selfish. Protect me LORD from all the plans of the enemy and lead me to where You want me to be. I know You have prepared someone for me, someone who will love me for who I am. Someone who is God-fearing and sensitive. Give me the patience to wait and not to be in a hurry. Help me to fully trust in Your perfect will. I give You all the glory and honor now and forevermore.  In the Mighty Name of JESUS CHRIST I pray.  Amen.

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husband, as unto the LORD. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the Church, and gave Himself for it. -Ephesians 5:22 & 25

Gracious Heavenly Father, thank You for my marriage partner. I give You praise for him/her. Use our relationship as a true picture of Christ and the church. Help us to be unselfish, kind, gentle, patient and unconditionally loving towards each other. I thank You for the gift of marriage. Bless our union Father-God and may we be a worthy example to others.

Put strife and any selfish ambitions far from us and help us to have the heart of a servant towards each other from day to day. Help us to encourage one another in our relationship with You, O LORD.

Help us to comfort and protect each other and count each other as a treasure which You have given, without making each other in any way an idol in our heart and affections.

All this I ask in the Precious Name of Jesus, Your Son and my Savior.  Amen.
