I was challenged once when I heard an older, wiser wife say, "If you're not praying for your husband, then who is?" And it stopped me in my tracks. If I'm not praying for Sam - his heart, his character, his faithfulness, his courage, his purity, his relationships, his direction....then who is? Praying for our husbands is not only our responsibility but it is an enormous privilege! And not only will praying for our husbands empower them to live the life God intended, but we will enjoy the benefits of a deeper relationship with our spouses as we experience God's favor and grace that He so kindly pours out on those who seek Him.
Proverbs 14:1 says that a wise woman builds her home. I believe that every single prayer for my husband is like a brick being laid, like I'm helping build a solid foundation and a fortress of protection around him, us, and our family. I want to be a wise wife who builds my home, who prays God's power into my husband, who seeks a deeper relationship with my spouse, and who enjoys God's favor! Don't you?!
-THE PRAYER-This week let's print off this 4x6 card and pray for our husbands to be compelled to pray continually, living and walking (and leading our families) by the Spirit.
