I invite you to open your Bibles to the book of Ephesians, chapter
number 5. I'll read verse 22 - verse 27. Ephesians 5:22-27.

heard, but 0 Lord, may it be received and understood and incorporated
into our lifestyles. For we make this prayer in the strong, holy, saving
name of this same Jesus. Amen.
