Lord, I lay all my expectations about my marriage at Your cross. I release my husband from the burden of fulfilling me in areas where I should be looking to you. Help me to accept him the way he is and not try to change him. Help me not to want to change him. I realize that in some ways he may never change, but at the same time, I release him to change in ways I never thought he could. I leave any changing that needs to be down in your hands, fully accepting that neither of us are perfect and never will be.
Only You, Lord, are perfect, and I look to you to perfect our marriage. May we be "perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment" (1 Corinthians 1:10).
I love you Brandon. Just the way you are.
