10 sincere prayers for becoming a better wife

Sincere prayers for wives
As wives, we often pray hard and long for our husbands. Often we think the troubles in our marriage occur because our husbands did not meet our expectations, our children became a burden, and God forgot about us. Have you ever taken your time to pray for yourselves, and your role in your own marriage?
So I can say I’m not the perfect mother or wife. When I examine my own life I realize it’s not my children that need to be constantly prayed over, and it’s not my husband I need to pray for. I am the one standing in the need of prayer, I am the one that needs to be fixed. So I searched scripture and wrote out 10 prayers that I need to and must pray to become a better wife, or maybe even a better woman of God who is pursuing a closer relationship with God, and her husband. Please feel free to save this prayer card, print it, or pin it!

    The fact that this blog is in existence is because your parents have invested prayers tears and other sacrifices so that you would always know the Love of Christ prayer and immersing in the Word n being a source of encouragement to others.I hope this encourages you and that you keep at it as the scriptures say so,quoting Jeremiah 29:11 here.God Bless.

    Love this post! We totally have to look at ourselves and offer our lives to God to be changed by him instead of pointing the finger at the failure of others. Saved your prayers to pinterest! Thanks!

    Can you insert a print button to make it easier to print? I shared on facebook, but I had to cut and paste the card into a Word doc with decreased upper and lower margins to get it to work. Maybe I missed something?

    Anyway, I really liked this post and the prayer card. Thank you for sharing.

    • Sue October 16, 2016 at 2:49 pm

      Hi Ruth, let me work on a better copy to print, and i’ll email it to you. Thank you for sharing on Facebook! Blessings to you!

      • Sue October 16, 2016 at 9:27 pm

        Okay, all I did was right click, save image as, and then print. It comes out really nice, in the center of the page. You just have to cut it to make it a card.
