“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God” Philippians 4:6
It is easy to stress about life, marriage, and parenting. But that is not God’s best for us! God wants us to bring our concerns to him. Praising God for your husband and praying for his needs and his heart is guaranteed to be one of your most rewarding works as his wife. There is so much peace that comes from praying for your husband!
Take your husband to the Lord in prayer! Ask your husband how you can pray for him or simply pray for needs you are aware of. Pray for his heart, that he will know the deep love of God. Pray that the Holy Spirit will strengthen him to resist temptation. Pray that He will love the Lord and his family more than ever before. Pray the Lord’s blessing over him. Pray for every little area of his life. The task of praying for your husband will be one that will last a lifetime, but is also one of the greatest gifts you can give him!
Lord, please show me how to pray for my husband. Help me not to complain about him to you, but to truly lift him up to you in love. Change my heart where it needs to be changed and give me the energy to really pray for the man you have given me.
I am the wife of a handsome man and the mama of two little boys (with a third one on the way this summer!). I live in a little house in the woods of Colorado with a few chickens and a lot of little-boy-craziness. I love you though I’ve never met you, and I’m praying for you often. My life, like yours, isn’t perfect, but we are both perfectly loved by our Savior!
