Ephesians 5:25-33

Dear Father,

Help me to be the good husband that you want me to be. Help me to love my wife even as Christ loves his church, being willing to give himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.

Help me to keep your command to love my wife as I love my own body. Empower me to love her as I love myself.

Help me to live in such a way as to help her in her attempt to be holy before you. May I always support, encourage, comfort, and nourish her for her good.

In the name of Jesus, the one husband of the church. Amen.
