Lord, help me to be sober-minded, dignified, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness. May I be in all respects a model of good works, and in my teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about me. Let my wife be reverent in her behavior, not a slanderer or a slave to much wine. Holy Spirit, teach her what is good, and train her to love me as her husband and our children, to be self-controlled, pure, caring for our home and family, kind, and submissive to me as her own husband, that the word of God may not be reviled. Bring godly women into her life who will partner together with her in teaching and being accountable to one another in these. Lord Jesus, as Your bondservants, help us to have a submissive and humble spirit in everything; may we be well-pleasing to You, not argumentative, and trustworthy so that in everything we may adorn the gospel showing others what You can do in our lives and theirs.
