THEME: GOD IS LOVE
“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself.”
-Just like it is the duty of wives to respect their husbands, husbands should love their wives. Husbands are called to demonstrate unfailing love for their wives just like Christ loved the church, even when there are conflicts in the home sometimes. The husband is the head of the wife, Christ is the head of the husband and God the Father is the head of Christ (1 Cor 11:3). Therefore, there is no love without God for God is love. Husbands are also the priests of the home and should teach the word of God to their families and present their wives holy and without blemish to God by the washing of the water by the word. Love transfigures those who love each other and their unity is strengthened. Such times as these when we have a lock down are interesting as the whole family is at home for the better part of the season. This is period when the family should be united more than ever through reading the word of God, praying together and bonding holding fast love which strengthens their relationships. Love inspires those who are together for God says that; it is pleasant for brethren to dwell together in unity and He commands a blessings when there is love (Psalms 133:1-3).
Lord You are the same yesterday, today and forever. Your love is unfailing and mercy for us is unshakable. You are our Lord of lords and King of kings, all glory and praise belongs to You. There is no other God but You, there is no other Savior but You Jesus. Bless us Lord and increase us in wisdom, knowledge, understanding, intellect, strength, love and faith for You are the giver of all things. What You have put together no man can separate, uphold all marriages with Your hand of grace; we humbly ask You. Grant all husbands unfailing love for their wives and help all wives to respect their husbands. Remember with mercy all couples who are trusting You for children, jobs, finances, salvation and other needs that You may hear them and answer them. Unite all families with bonds that cannot be broken and cement them with Your precious blood. Bless all our children and protect them from any harm. Make a way dear Father for them to go back to school and prosper them in all their ways according to Your will. Some families are at the verge of breaking, uphold them by Your right hand Jesus and restore their union. Remember those who are divorced and separated that You may grant them their hearts desires Lord. Many are seeking You for marriage Father, grant us direction and favor for You have said in Your word that none shall lack a mate merciful Father. Further that, when a man finds a wife, he finds a good thing and obtains favor from You, grant us Your favor Lord. God bless us and keep us, make Your face shine upon us and be gracious to us; lift up Your countenance upon us and give us peace. Amen
