Please help me learn how to be a good wife. Teach me to be compassionate, understanding, and selfless that I may love my husband as fully as you love him. Show me how I might love him better. Help me to have thicker skin so that I am not so easily hurt without becoming numb or desensitized to the problems we face together. Continue to knit us together as a team, Lord. Teach us how to be humble and reliant on you first and one another second. Help us to be an example of your love and your covenant. Bless our home. Protect us from injury, illness, and harm. Show us the path you would have us walk together that we might more fully do your will. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
