Submission – “Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.” Eph. 5:21
I humbly ask for forgiveness Lord for all those times I have not submitted to you or my husband; for those times when I thought I knew better, wanted my own way, for thinking I deserve more. Forgive me, cleanse me, create in me a new heart – oh Lord – a heart that will submit to you and to my husband, out of reverence for you and for that you have created me to be and for all that you have blessed me with.
I ask, Lord, that you will graciously help me to submit to my husband, to love him, to honour him and to respect him – as you have called me to do. I pray dear Lord that you will give me the desire and the opportunity to submit to him, so that he can see you in his life.
Help me, oh Holy Spirit, change me, mould me, and create me to be a wife who honours God by honouring my husband. Without your help and guidance, I cannot do this.
In Jesus Name
