“Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out.” Acts 3:19
Lord, I wish I could say that I am and always have been the perfect wife, but you know that is not true. There have been times when I have let my husband down and I have had to ask for his forgiveness. Sometimes over and over again for the same kind of offense.
Lord, I pray that my husband would be quick to forgive me when I hurt him. I pray that he would let go of any bitterness or anger he may feel. i pray that we can keep the communication open and civil without blame and ridicule so that we can talk through anything that could cause a rift in our relationship.
I pray more than that; I pray that I would understand how I have hurt him in the past and that I would grow through his forgiving. I never want to hurt my husband, Lord, and I ask your forgiveness for the times that I have.
Help me, Father God, to see where I need to change and remind me to always ask for my love’s forgiveness. Humble me, Lord, as you teach me to be the wife you have called me to be.
I John 1:9
