Revealer of Truth,
Through Christ I ask that you would make my husband hear His words and do them, so that he may be like a wise man who built his house on a rock. Keep him from merely hearing His words and not doing them, for then he will be like the foolish man who built his house on the sand. When the rain falls and the foods come and the winds blow and beat against him, I do not wish him to fall! Your Word alone stands firm. May he build his life upon it.
Let him never despise or neglect tax collectors and sinners. But instead fill him with tenderness and compassion for them, and the humility to eat with them. For those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. Continue to teach him what this means: “I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.” For Your great Son came not to call the righteous, but sinners.
