“An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels.
The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain.”
Proverbs 31: 10-11
Father God, it takes a special calling to be a pastor’s wife. A call to often stand alone as she defends and supports her husband through everything. She is called to be an example to us of the Proverbs 31 woman, knowing that her every move is being watched and often judged. Help her to give liberty to our pastor to fulfill his calling, while caring for the home. Lead her as she prays for him, coddles him, and nurtures him when he feels overwhelmed. Let her be his “safe place” to re-energize and rest.
Lord, protect their marriage. Let them both put their relationship with each other above that of the church, because without that, there is no ministry. Protect them, Lord, from the plans that Satan has to cause jealousy, doubt, fear or any other anxious thought. Remove any and all temptation to give in to these emotions with a faith in the faithfulness of each other.
Father, I ask that You provide a special time that my pastor and his wife can get away, even for a couple of hours a week, just for each other. That they will not forget that their marriage is by Your design and it takes care to keep the fire alive. Cause a love that passes all understanding to fill their hearts at unexpected times during the day and let others see the smile and know that it comes from a true heart.
Lord, I ask that my pastor’s wife would be the help-meet that You intended her to be and to grow in her own walk with God. That she would understand Your design for true submission and walk proudly in her role as wife of the pastor.
In Jesus’ Name,
