God – Today, as I listened to Looking for Something in Red by Lorrie Morgan I heard the angelic voice of a gifted female singer. Though very blessed by You with amazing vocal talents, Lorrie has had her share of broken marriages and the unexpected, early, and tragic loss of her singer-husband, Keith Whitley.
What resonates in this song is the longing of wives throughout the stages and ages of marriage to be loved, to be the heart’s desire of their husbands, and to have intimacy and passion in their marriages.
Lorrie, like every wife, is looking to wear something in red to turn her man’s head and to feel that same romantic feeling, child after child, year after year and no matter what.
God, in prayer please help every husband to see his wife as dressed in red, as beautiful and as lovely as when she wore white on their wedding day.
May husbands keep love alive in doing special things for their wives on ordinary days and not just birthdays and anniversaries.
May husbands do ordinary things for their wives which make days special….a kiss, a warm embrace, a compliment and sometimes just listen to them, really listen.
May husbands know that intimacy and passion are important to their wives and marriage and that foreplay starts at sunrise and ends when the lights go out.
Please help all wives to keep looking for love and for something in red.
God, please help all married couples preserve the passion they had for each other on their wedding day and to share their love for You and each other in every way. Amen
If you like this prayer, please share.
