Lord, bless and preserve my cherished husband whom You have given me, let his life be long and blessed, comfortable and holy, successful and free... help me to be the wife that You want me to be for him. Let me ever be a blessing and comfort to him, a sharer in all his sorrow, a strength in his moments of helplessness, a consolation in all accidents and trials of life. Keep me from all ungentleness, infidelity, ill-temper, and hasty judgment. Guard me from words or actions that may hurt, ignore, or take him for granted. Let me treat him with honor and respect, tenderness and compassion that we may delight in each other acoording to your blessed word. I place him in Your care, knowing that your love for him is greater than my own. Keep us close to each other in this life and guide us to our true and heavenly home. Amen.
