Lord, help my spouse and I to joyfully accept and live out our God-given roles in marriage. May we surrender to You daily and remember the biblical principles of sacrificial love and reverent submission. Help us in thought, word, deed, and decision to honor the original order of creation (1 Corinthians 11:7–9) and, may we both willingly submit to You in everything.
Prayer of the Day
Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
