Keith,

The depth of my love for you is beyond description. Your love enfolds me and fills me with heavenly delight. I love you so.

My prayer for marriages:

Father, You designed marriage as a special gift to the crown of Your creation. Thank you for this blessed gift. I pray for all the husbands and wives who are Your children. Bless their love, intensify their love, and unify their relationship with You and each other, so that nothing can separate them from each other and from You. What a holy union You have created! All to the Glory of God.
