Solid, identifiable emotions have names like depression, sadness, anxiety, or anger. 

Moods are far more difficult to pin down. They are often very hard to recognize, identify, or understand.

First of all, you must keep in mind that there is a process always going on in a woman's mind and soul, all her thoughts, fears, hormones, responsibilities, memories of previous offenses, the amount of sleep she got last night, the devil's plans for her life, her entire past, and how her hair is behaving that day, are simultaneously competing for her attention.

Try to understand that as a man can have simple, clearly defined needs, such as food, sex, success, appreciation, and recreation. Your wife, on the other hand, is a complex being. Her needs are so intricate that even she is at a loss for words to explain them to you. Only God, her Creator, can fathom it all.

A woman can be emotionally sensitive in the days before, during, and after her monthly cycle. 

It's better to first pray, "Lord, reveal to me what is happening in my wife and show me what I can do about it." Then say to your wife, "Tell me what's going on in that pretty head of yours."

Keep your mind from thinking about the more important things you could be doing. Women have a special ability to spot that from 50 yards away.

Here is some advice that can help you navigate these waters successfully, including a few good lines that always work. Say them to your wife in any order, and then pray for her.

1. "I love you."
2. 'You are the greatest woman in the world to me."
3. 'You're beautiful when you're upset."
4. "Tell me what's on your mind, and I promise not to get mad."
5. "How have I let you down?"
6. "How can I make it up to you?"
7. "Have you been getting enough sleep?"
8. "What would make you happy right now?"
9. "I don't have all the answers. But God does."
10. "Do you want to pray about this together?"

This whole process, prayer included, could take less than 15 minutes of your undivided attention, and it will dissipate the power of all those converging forces. What a small investment of time in order to have such great rewards!

In the midst of the complex manifestations of your wife's moods, there will come forth a simple message.

Ask God to help you hear the message and show you how to pray accordingly.

Please pray for your wife that:
1. She will have the peace of God.
2. She will not be subject to mood swings.
3. Her hormone levels will be balanced.
4. She will express her feelings openly to you.
5. She will believe that you love her.
6. You will listen and hear what she is saying.
7. She will rely on the Lord more.
