Lord Jesus,

I pray for my marriage today. I pray that I would willingly walk beside my husband, encouraging him and believing in Him. Give me your vision for his life. I want to be his greatest fan. Strengthen me to guard my tongue so that the words I speak to him are words of life, hope and vision.

Lord, give us eyes to see the beauty and gifts that surround us every day. Help us to grow old optimistically and gratefully so that we are known as the couple that always has something worthwhile and encouraging to say to others. Help us to fear you all the days of our lives so that we are full of your wisdom.

Thank you for the gift of marriage. If you do not return soon, Lord, please bless our family with strong, Christian marriages for many generations to come.
