For our summer catechesis, we are studying the Table of Duties from the Small Catechism. This week we consider our station and vocation as husbands. I recommend you listen here: 2013-07-14 Catechesis – To Husbands
The Catechism: Table of Duties—To Husbands: 1 Peter 3:7; Colossians 3:19
|Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers. 1 Peter 3:7||1st+|
|Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them. Colossians 3:19||1st+|
Prayer for Husbands
O Lord Jesus, by Your Word and Spirit, fashion the men of Your Church into husbands made in Your image, who love their wives and sacrifice themselves for them, even as You gave Yourself for us, Your bride the Church. Teach them to respect their wives and to treat them with tenderness, compassion, and lovingkindness. Deliver them from all pride and arrogance so that they do not take advantage of their wives, but honor them as joint heirs of the gracious gift of life. In Your holy name we pray. Amen.
