Lord God, I pray for my wife and for our marriage. We are going through some really really hard times. Lord, you know the struggles we are having. I pray that her heart is softened and you bring her to repentance and faith in your Church. Jesus I pray that you soften both of our hearts so that we can hear and communicate with each other. And, Lord, I pray that you envelop my wife, my kids, and myself with your love, mercy, grace, and forgiveness and that our family is an image of your mercy and faithfulness. Pray that I can change. That I can give up childish things to be the man that you are wanting me to be and what my family needs me to be.
