An Ode To My Wife
If I could just turn back the timeTo when I heard you say,That I could be your shining princeAnd all the dragons slayI'd build a castle on the hillSo all the world could see,The lovely princess that I chose,
To live and die with me.
If I could just turn back the timeAnd start my life anew,I'd plant some roses near the pathsThat I have led you throughThere'd be no thorns to pierce your heart,No tears to dim your eyes,I'd leave no stones to bruise your feet,
There'd be no sad goodbyes
But Father Time will not turn backThe hours that passed away,I can't remove the thorns and rocksFrom all those past gone days;I cannot live my life againBut dragons I would slay,If I could be your shining prince
For only one more day.
By T.C. Ring
We've shared our lives these many years.You've held my hand; you've held my heart.So many blessings, so few tearsYet for a moment, we must part.The memories you've given meAre times I've shared with my best friendI'll hold them, love, right here they'll be
Until we share our lives again.

Prayer for Relationships
The issue of relationships is something that’s constantly talked about among both men and women. Husbands, wives, kids, bosses, neighbors… relationships can be rewarding and fulfilling, but they can also be testy and challenging. When your heart is involved, your deepest needs tend to come to the surface.
So how can you pray for your relationships? Here are a few sample prayers for when you’re at a loss for words.
1. Prayer in the midst of conflict
Father in Heaven, I know I add fuel to the fire in my relationships because I am needy myself. I don’t to admit it, but I know it’s true. Thank You that You see me as I truly am and that You still love me.
Please help me to see myself honestly, and to own my own part in this conflict before I point my finger. Please give me insight into my own needs and give me patience as I encounter needs in the ones I love. I need Your help, Lord. Please guide me.
I pray this in Jesus’ name, amen.
Conflict very often reflects unmet needs. Sometimes there’s an easy solution, such as the need for sleep. But frequently, the need is much deeper:
- To feel valued and heard.This often stems from insecurity or past hurts, and may show up as overly defensive with gloves on, ready to fight.
- To forgive others or one’s self.The need to control can stem from an angry heart, and can show up as manipulation.
If your unmet needs are showing up in your relationships, talk to a mentor, friend, or a counselor to work through some of these issues. Pray for patience as you encounter the unmet needs in others, and regularly ask God for His help.
2. Prayer for help when I feel “less than”
Lord God, I so often feel inadequate without even realizing it. The disapproval I pour out on others often stems from my own insecurity. I don’t intend to fight. God, I need Your help. Please remind me to address my issues.
Help me to see myself differently and to allow You to love me and to change me. Help me to find my confidence in Your strength and in Your forgiveness. I invite You into my life today. I need You. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.It’s a natural tendency to want God to change the other person. Yet the reality is that you can only change yourself. Sometimes just realizing what words and situations make you feel “less than” is enough to begin the journey of change. Other times you may need help seeing yourself differently.
Be the beginning of change in your relationships. Find ways to give approval more often to those around you. When things need addressing don’t show your disapproval, but choose a calm time to talk. Ask for prayer. Relationships that are worth keeping are worth the effort.
3. Prayer for the words to say in a challenging relationship
Dear Father in Heaven, it is not possible for me to keep my mouth from speaking things it should not. I need Your power to guard my tongue. Help me to think before I speak. Help me to feel that nudge of Your Holy Spirit before words rush my mouth.
Father, I need You to help me to know what to say that will build __________ up rather than tear down or hurt. Please make me aware, by Your divine power, of __________’s needs so I can respond in a way that benefits him/her.
Help me to run to You when frustrations and anger bubble up, and may You ease my emotions and send me back with grace on my lips. Help me to be bold when issues need addressing, but gentle and loving in the way I address them.
Father, You are the only one who can perform this miracle in my life. I look to You today to set a guard on my heart and my mouth, as I don’t want to grieve You. And please forgive me for the times when I have grieved You! Walk with me closely today, because I need the help of Your Holy Spirit in dealing with __________. Thank You. I pray this in Jesus’ Name, amen.
God gives sound counsel in His word about how to deal with relationships. It all begins with what comes your mouth.
Listen to His words of wisdom:
“The tongue holds the power of life and death.” Proverbs 18:21
The power of our words is a tremendous force. It has been said that people will seldom remember the words you spoke, but they will always remember how you made them feel.
It’s true, isn’t it? It’s easy to remember those who have made you feel inspired and empowered. But it’s also easy to recall those who made you feel down and useless… just by their words.Words have power. They can heal or hurt, build up or drag down, encourage or discourage, inspire or deflate.
You can begin the change today. And the good news is that you don’t have to do it alone! Jesus wants to transform and restore your challenging relationships, starting today. I encourage you to use the form below (in the “Connect” tab) to connect with a mentor for prayer. You can also leave a prayer request in the “Discuss” section and we'll pray for you there.

God is always there to listen, and his followers on earth are always ready to assist in having your prayer requests heard.
