The Lord’s beloved rests securely on Him. He shields [her] all day long, and [she] rests on His shoulders. (Deuteronomy 33:12 HCSB)
February has the power to stir up powerful emotions. It can make us aware of the places our marriages need healing. Where walls feel safe and vulnerability opens us up to more pain.
This prayer is for you, sweet friend. Even when you don’t feel loved, God loves you. You are His beloved daughter. He longs to draw you close, to share His heart and hear yours.
I pray that you, being rooted and firmly established in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the length and width, height and depth of God’s love, and to know the Messiah’s love that surpasses knowledge, so you may be filled with all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:17b-19 HCSB)
Whether your heart is filled to overflowing or you just need the reminder God loves you, this prayer is for you.
A Prayer for the Wife Who Needs the Reminder God Loves Her:
Lord, I know You love me and even sent Your Son to die for me.
In You I am full known and fully loved.
Your Word tells me I belong to You and Your desire is for me (Song of Songs 7:10).
I know I can face whatever lies before me if I can feel You love me.
Help me feel the full measure of Your love. To feel Your arms wrapped around me. To rest close enough that I can hear Your heartbeat.
When the world casts me aside, help me see how You draw me close.
When I feel rejected by those I love, help me see how You accept me just as I am.
When my heart feels broken, help me know the salve of Your love makes me whole.
Help me rest in Your unfailing love for me.
In Jesus’ precious Name, Amen.
