Praying For Our Husbands
Praying for our husbands is a MUST in my opinion. Unfortunately I didn't realize this until I was several years into my marriage. Fortunately God got ahold of my heart and made me realize the importance of praying for my hubby.
I'm not talking about praying that God will change your husband. I've been there and done that as well. Turns out this isn't really what God intended when we pray for our husbands. What I am talking about is praying FOR your husband.
A great resource I've found is Stormie Omartian's book, "The Power of the Praying Wife". This book gives us one area to pray about for our husbands each day. I have the book on my nightstand, but I also copied the list and have it inside my Bible.
What makes Stormie's book so great is that she has 30 things to pray over our husbands. This works our perfectly so that you can pray each item over your husband each day of the month.
Praying for my husband has made me see things in our marriage differently. It has softened my heart when it was full of anger or bitterness. It has made me realize more about my hubby and his heart. It has encouraged me to try and be a better wife. And I'd like to think it has blessed my husband in ways neither of us may know this side of heaven.
Take the next 30 days to pray over your husband. See what this can do no only for him, but you also!
