Rekindle my husband’s desire for our marriage

by Betsy (Illinois)

St. Jude we have problems in our relationship. Beg almighty God to give us the light to see ourselves and each other as we really are. Help us to grow daily in self-knowledge and mutual love, while at the same time developing our potential to love and be loved.

Help us St. Jude to see and root out every manifestation of selfishness, vanity, and childish self-seeking, those hidden enemies of love and maturity. Show us that by learning to love and being filled with love we may compliment and nurture each other as we share our lives together. Amen.

I pray for my husband’s heart to soften and that he may see the good in our relationship and our marriage. I pray that he not be deceived by discouraging feelings or false beliefs, but that he may see the potential our marriage and our family of 3 can have. I pray for myself so bitterness does not enter my heart or mind when I think of him and our situation. I continue to pray for patience, kindness, and love for myself and that I may show these qualities to my husband. I pray that he recognizes these qualities as true and genuine and wants to reciprocate them to me, as well.

Dear Jesus help our marriage and help our love to grow back stronger than ever.
