Prayer for the Wife

Leave a comment

Lord make me a wife of noble character. Let my husband have full confidence in me and may he lack nothing of value. May I bring him good all the days of my life. Lord, help me never to neglect my present duties by assuming other duties. Help me to plant fruitful vines in my vineyard. Lord, I gird myself with spiritual and physical strength and fitness for my God given tasks. My arms are strong and firm; I taste and see that my gain from work with and for God is good. My lamp burns continuously through the night of trouble, privation, or sorrow, warning away fear, doubt, and distrust. Lord, help me always to reach out with opened and filled hands to the poor and needy, whether in body, mind, or spirit. May my family be doubly clothed in scarlet and the coverings I make for myself be of fine linen and purple. Let my husband be known in the city’s gates as he sits among the elders in the land. Lord, help me to lead others to purchase the fine linen and the sashes that frees one up for service. Let strength and dignity be my clothing and make my position strong and secure. Lord, I will rejoice over the future knowing that I and my family are ready for it. When I open my mouth skillful and godly wisdom is on my tongue with the law of kindness that gives counsel and instruction. Father, with your help, I look well to how things go in my household. I will not eat the bread of idleness, gossip, discontent, or self-pity. My children rise up and call me blessed, happy, fortunate, and to be envied. My husband boasts of and praises me, saying that I excel above all women. I am a woman who reverently and worshipfully fears the Lord. I shall see the reward of my labor.
