His Affection

(Sorry this is husband is out of town so I don't want him working on his affection while he is gone...hee! hee!)

From The Power of a Praying Wife by Stormie O'Martian

"Lord, I pray for open physical affection between my husband and me. Enable each of us to lay aside self-consciousness or apathy and be effusive in our display of love.
Help us to demonstrate how much we care for and value each other.
Remind us throughout each day to affectionately touch one another in some way.
Help us to not be cold, undemonstrative, uninterested, or remote. Enable us to be warm, tender, compassionate, loving, and adoring. Break through any hardheadedness on our part that refuses to change and grow. If one of us is less affectionate to the other's detriment, bring us into balance.
Change our habits of indifference so that we can become the husband and wife You called us to be.
So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church. Ephesians 5:28-29"
