30 Days, 30 Verses {Day 13} :: Ephesians 5:25-29

"Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way, husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church."
~ Ephesians 5:25-29

Today's prayer:

Father, I pray that Mike grows in his leadership in our relationship, that he will protect and provide for me and our family. I pray that he will lead wisely and love me well, so that You are glorified in our marriage. I pray that our love for each other would be marked by giving, not getting. I pray that his love for me is a picture of Christ's love for the church: that he loves me sacrificially, in a way that makes me whole, and that his words and actions bring out the best in me.
