Bishop T.D. Jakes
Lord, can there be revival in our marriage? How can something that started out so fresh now seem so stale? I am torn between all the wear. Our intimacy has lost its spontaneity and our love feels canned and uncreative. I need you to break through the veil of politeness that hides our hushed frustration.
Give me the grace to forgive the things that seem insensitive in my husband. Give me strength and creativity, patience and humility. Make my heart race with the passion and affection that once came so freely. Please, father teaches me how to be a good wife. Bind us together.
I must realize that I will always love an imperfect person, and so will he. Maybe I am learning how you really love me as I reach out to this man who doesn’t always seem in touch with where I am. I see that you love me when I am out of touch with you.
Most of all, Lord, make me like you. Hover over us. Fashion me fro my husband and him for me. Breathe fresh like into our love and allow us to be friends again, to laugh and play again. I miss the way it’s used to be. Take us back, dear Lord. Take us back. Than you for knowing what to do with our hearts. I believe there will be change because of you.
