A Wife’s Prayer of Submission by Dr.Jené Walker

I am a wife, and I submit my husband to You, Lord. He has been unfaithful to me in some way, whether it was adultery, or focusing more on the job than on me and the kids, or not helping me with the kids, or pornography, or flirting, or an emotional affair, or verbal and emotional abuse, or in our finances. God, You haven’t released me, so I’m being obedient, and I’m staying.

But God, while I’m here, I know You will still hold me accountable for my unforgiveness, and You won’t even move on my behalf with all this unforgiveness in my heart. I’m tired of withholding my nurturing, my lovemaking, my praise, and my support. I’m tired of hurting, but I’m also tired of operating in the flesh in my marriage.

Create a right spirit in me. If I really listen to my spirit, I will know that I’m not right myself. I need to submit. I need to be quiet. I need spiritual wisdom. I need to be a better steward of our money. I need to care for him first and my children and family and friends after that. Help me focus on You and stop criticizing him. I can’t transform him. Only You can, but I can be obedient to You, Lord, and then You will honor my marriage. My husband and my marriage belong to You, Lord. Jené Elaine Walker
