MARRIAGE CONFESSION FOR WIVES
I am a virtuous wife and a true daughter of Sarah, who honored and respected her husband as the head of their home and family. I covenant with God to love, honor and respect my husband as the head of our home, in obedience to the Word of God. I covenant to be faithful to him. By faith, I submit to my husband’s authority in our home. I do this as a service to the Lord. I subordinate myself to my husband so that the Word of God may not be exposed to reproach, blasphemed or discredited. I trust my husband’s leadership and choose to depend on him. The Lord will protect me and provide for me, because I trust Him enough to obey His Word. Therefore I am not anxious or wrought up. I will do right and let nothing terrify me. I will not give way to hysterical fears or let anxieties unnerve me.
I adapt myself to my husband. I make myself beautiful for my husband, but I know that true beauty comes from within. I have a gentle and peaceful spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. I am temperate and disciplined and I exercise self-control. I love righteousness. By the grace of God: I am pure and modest and discreet. I am good-natured and kind-hearted. I am gracious and good. I am wise, understanding and prudent. I am earnest and strong in character. I am a crowning joy to my husband. I am trustworthy. I do not give him an occasion to be ashamed of me. My husband can confidently trust in me and securely rely on me. The secrets of his heart are safe with me.
I love my husband. I reverence him. I respect him. I regard him. I notice him and pay attention to him. I am sensitive to his needs and desires. I build my husband up. I encourage him. I prefer him. I defer to him. I revere him. I honor him. I esteem him. I venerate him. I appreciate him. I prize him. I adore him. I admire him exceedingly. I praise him. I am devoted to him. I deeply love him. I enjoy my husband.
I belong to my husband and my husband belongs to me. My body belongs to my husband and my husband’s body belongs to me. My desire is toward my husband and my earnest desire is to please him. My husband is my best friend. He is a great blessing to me. Thank You, Lord for my husband.
MARRIAGE CONFESSION FOR HUSBANDS
I covenant with God to treasure my wife and to be faithful to her. I am a man of integrity. I am the husband of one wife. I am wholly committed to my wife. I confine myself to her. I live joyfully with her.
By the grace of God, I am the head of my home. I am the priest and prophet of my home. I am submitted to God as I lovingly lead my wife and family. I love my wife as Christ loves the church. I give my life for her. I love my wife like my own flesh. I provide for her. I carefully protect her.
I remember that God gave her to me. She is my grace gift. She is my “good thing”–the evidence of God’s favor on my life. I live considerately with my wife. I intelligently recognize our marriage union. I honor my wife as physically the weaker. However, I realize that spiritually, we are equals. We are both joint-heirs of the grace of life. We are both joint-heirs of the unmerited favor of God.
I do this so we can pray effectively. I do this so our prayers will not be hindered or cut off. I remember that she is more sensitive and tender than I am.
I am affectionate and sympathetic toward her. I am patient and kind toward her. I am sensitive to her needs and desires. I am never harsh, bitter or resentful toward her. I humble myself to be compassionate, courteous, and tenderhearted toward her.
I belong to my wife and my wife belongs to me. My body belongs to my wife and my wife’s body belongs to me. I make it a priority to please and bless my wife. I make it a priority to try to meet her needs. My earnest desire is to please her. I rejoice in my wife. She is a blessing to me. She is my best friend. Thank You, Lord for my wife.
