God of Mercy and Love, I come for help in making the relationship with my spouse be the best it can. You tell me to have fervent love for one another as believers. Sometimes, Lord, I think it is easier to show love to strangers than to my spouse. I know this is not of You, so please forgive me. Change me, O God. Help me to have a deep love for my spouse that can only come from You. Amen.
