Make me gentle in spirit and word toward my wife

Dear Lord,

As men we naturally lean towards logic and harshness instead of emotion and understanding. We often try to fix before we listen. At least this is true for me. Father, make me gentle in spirit and word toward my wife. Help me to be quicker to listen and slower to speak. Lord, I want to teach my children what it looks like to be gentle and loving to their future spouses. Lord, I want to walk in the spirit and not the flesh. I want to be the husband that you desire me to be and that my wife deserves.

In Jesus’ name, amen!

  1. Ahh, what a lovely prayer. That’s a great prayer for wives too, “Lord make me gentle in spirit and word.” Wives actually have the additional challenge of loving men that often present themselves, at least on the outside, as being somewhat bold and blustery.

  2. Reblogged this on a simple man of God and commented:
    Men (even if currently single), pray this.
    Women, change wife to husband, then ditto.

  3. This makes me think of the verse about living with your wife in an understanding way.
