Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
Thank God- for our husbands: who they are and what they do, that we have a partner in this life, for the father that they are to our children…
Our role as wives- for us to be the help meet God designed us to be, that we would be respectful, encouraging, and submissive to our husband’s role as leader.
Our husband’s role- wisdom to be the leader God has called him to be, that he would love us as we desire to be loved.
Unity- that God would cause us to be unified in the decisions of life that come our way. Ie: finances, work/careers, children (discipline, training, school etc.), hobbies, etc.
Infidelity- Protection against it and healing for those who have suffered from it.
Influence- that we would be positive examples of Christ-centered marriages.
Joy and peace- that we would experience this in our relationship with our husband, that we wouldn’t forget how to have fun in the midst of busy lives.
