Praying Wives – We are doing Chapter 5 – His Affection. Ladies, keep your hearts open to what God wants for your marriage. 1 Corinthians 7:4 states that husbands are to render their wives the affection due to you. Keep in mind that our affection between husband and wife should be balanced. Ask the Lord how to do this so that neither of you is lacking affection. We want all that God has for us.
