31 Days Marriage Novena with Father CK

THEME: The Redeemed, The Beloved and The Free  


INTRODUCTION

Dear Wives, As YOUR PRIEST AND SERVANT, I invite you to join me in a 31 Day Challenge to pray for Your husband’s. Proverbs 31:12 says, “She does him good, and not harm…” One way that we can “do good” for our husband’s is to pray for them. Jesus is praying for your husband, and He invites you to join Him! Recall an image of Jesus you’ve likely seen on His knees, praying. Imagine leaning in to listen to what He is praying and hearing Him speak your husband’s name.
Experience Jesus’ heart for your husband as you claim Bible promises for his future, intercede for his spiritual growth and witness, and declare his freedom and passion to love the Lord. God has blessed you with your husband for a purpose. Support him through prayer and see the benefits in your own life.

BENEFITS OF PRAYING FOR YOUR HUSBAND

4. Praying for your husband increases trust and intimacy with him.
5. Praying for your husband strengthens the bond of the marriage.
6. Praying for your husband helps him to know your struggles and needs better.
7. Prayer changes people: it therefore means that praying for your husband will eventually change him, in Gods time.
8. Praying for your husband reminds you that God is the sole source of life, truth, love, and hope.

With so many challenges and expectations facing men in the world, many people need someone that will always encourage them, married men are in this category.

Instead of putting others down, a praying wife will always be at the forefront of building others up starting with her husband. She will do this with the word of God and prayer.

She will also be the voice of reason when people want her husband to quit. And will always remind him of the faithfulness of God during the storm.

Men are the kings and priests of their homes.  And since the enemy knows this, he attacks men. He is on a quest to make men feel worthless to not lead their families effectively. No wonder most of our FM stations and print media will be so loud when a man has fallen.

A praying woman knows that God has given her the role of being a helper.  She knows that she is called to help her husband and other men in society to pray. 

So she prays for him so that he can stand firm in the faith. And take up his kingly roles and be the man God wants him to be.

This woman is not threatened by the role that God has given her.  She doesn’t see herself as an inferior person.  Instead, she knows that it is by being a helper that she can accomplish the will of God. And to thrive in life.

A praying wife is a line of defense against the enemy for her family. She will go to great lengths to fight for her family.  And when she knows that God is on her side, she will stop at nothing until the purposes of God are fulfilled.

When her children stray, she will stand firm and fight for them in prayer.  She will also go boldly to the throne of grace to stand in the gap for her husband. Our families need to have praying wives in their midst because a praying wife is full of honor.  She is determined to live a life that is pleasing to God.  So she will not get easily entangled with the things of this world.

A praying wife does not second-guess herself because she’s grounded in the word of God. She makes bold decisions when others are afraid. She will go boldly into God’s throne and ask for things that seem impossible in the eyes of men. For she knows that she serves a God that can do exceedingly, abundantly, above and beyond. When she messes up, she goes to God and asks for forgiveness. And gets back on track with the help of the Holy Spirit. She knows that her life here on earth is limited, so she lives purposefully.

It is no secret that when women pray, great things happen, and the world becomes a better place full of peace and harmony. When wives pray, families are restored, redeemed, delivered and protected. Unfortunately, very few wives are praying. Today, many of our wives are caught up with the busyness of life. 

Gracious married women, our society needs praying wives more than ever.  Let’s make it a point to pray that God may bring back the praying woman in our families.

It’s time for married women to turn back to the real heart of worship. This is the objective that OUR NOVENA is meant to achieve. To you married women, you need to become the people God wants you to be.  God has given you grace upon grace to take care of our families, run successful businesses, and be career women and many more.

You can do all these things without sacrificing your prayer lives. Don’t let the things of this world overshadow your prayer life. The things of this world that are passing away. Let us take this journey together and realize the restoration of our families IN OUR TIME.

If you can, and I know that you can, please share this novena until every married woman has a copy.

Day 1

 

PRAY THAT YOU WILL BE HIS EYES

Do you see in your marriage where you’ve experienced discernment, or “women’s intuition”? Were you right or wrong? How have you helped your husband navigate it? Do you say, “I told you so,” or rejoice together that an evil plan has been thwarted? Whenever anyone new comes into your and your husband’s life, ask God for eyes to see and ears to hear. Not for the purpose to be on a “witch hunt,” but to be watchful and discerning. Not everyone that comes into your life means harm, nor is everyone that comes into your life to develop ties with. Have a gentle and grace-filled spirit but also be in prayer.


PRAYER

Prayer for His Wife

 Lord, help me to be a good wife. I fully realize that I don’t have what it takes to be one without Your help. Take my selfishness, impatience, and irritability and turn them into kindness, long-suffering, and the willingness to bear all things. Take my old emotional habits, mindsets, automatic reactions, rude assumptions, and self-protective stance, and make me patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle and self-controlled. Take the hardness of my heart and break down the walls with Your battering ram of revelation. Give me a new heart, and work in me Your love, peace and joy (Galatians 5:22, 23). I am not able to rise above who I am at this moment. Only You can transform me.


 Show me where there is sin in my heart, especially with regard to my husband. I confess the times I’ve been unloving, critical, angry, resentful, disrespectful, and unforgiving toward him. Help me to put aside any hurt, anger, or disappointment I feel and forgive him the way You do–totally and completely, no looking back. Make me a tool of reconciliation, peace, and healing in this marriage. Enable us to communicate well and rescue us from the threshold of separation where the realities of divorce begin.


 Make me my husband’s helpmate, companion, friend and support. Help me to create a peaceful, restful, safe place for him to come home to. Teach me how to take care of myself and stay attractive to him. Grow me into a creative and confident woman who is rich in mind, soul, and spirit. Make me the kind of woman he can be proud to say is his wife. 


 I lay all my expectations at Your cross. I release my husband from the burden of fulfilling me in areas where I should be looking to You. Help me to accept him where he is and not try to change him. I realize that in some ways he may never change, but at the same time I release him to change in ways I never thought he could. I leave any changing that needs to be done in Your hand, fully accepting that neither of us is perfect and never will be.

Only You, Lord, are perfect and I look to You to perfect us.


 Teach me how to pray for my husband and make my prayers a true language of love. Where love has died, create new love between us. Show me what unconditional love really is and how to communicate it in a way he can clearly perceive. Bring unity between us so that we can be in agreement about everything (Amos 3:3). May the God of patience and comfort grant us to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus (Romans 15:5). Make us a team, not pursuing separate, competitive, or independent lives, but working together, overlooking each other’s faults and weaknesses for the greater good of the marriage. Help us to pursue things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another (Romans 14:19). May we be “perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment” (1 Corinthians 1:10).


 I pray that our commitment to You and to one another will grow stronger and more passionate every day. Enable him to be the head of the home as You made him to be and show me how to support and respect him as he rises to that place of leadership. Help me to understand his dreams and see things from his perspective. Reveal to me what he wants and needs and show me potential problems before they arise. Breathe your life into this marriage. 


 Make me a new person, Lord. Give me a fresh perspective, a positive outlook, and a renewed relationship with the man You’ve given me. Help me see him with new eyes, new appreciation, new love, new compassion, and new acceptance. Give my husband a new wife, and let it be me.  


MAKE THIS DECLARATION EVERY DAY.

Today, {mention the date}, I take authority against anything that is a hindrance or stumbling block in our marriage. I stand against Pain, Jealousy, Bitterness, Anger, Unforgiveness, Hurt, Lying Tongue, Hatred, and Sorrow.

I turn away from everything in my life and around me that gives Satan the power and legality to attack my marriage, in the name of Jesus.

I declare null and void anything and everything in the life of my husband and around him that gives Satan the power and legality to attack our marriage, in the name of Jesus.

I declare and decree that;

My children are a success and will excel in school and in life, in Jesus name.

My husband is a success and will excel in life, in Jesus name.

I too will be a success and will excel in life, in Jesus name.


Satan you have no power over my marriage because you did not create it. It was created by God and it is blessed by him.

Lord, I surrender my marriage to you now, in the name of Jesus.

Day 2


PRAY THAT HE MAY BE BOLD IN SPEAKING UP FOR CHRIST. 

Pray that your husband would not be meek when it comes to speaking up for Christ and telling others of Christ. 

Matthew 28:19-20 ” Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you…”


Prayer for His Mind

 Lord, I pray for Your protection on my husband’s mind. Shield him from the lies of the enemy. Help him to clearly discern between Your voice and any other, and show him how to take every thought captive as You have instructed us to do. May he thirst for Your Word and hunger for Your truth so that he can recognize wrong thinking. Give him strength to resist lying thoughts. Remind him that he has the mind of Christ.

Where the enemy’s lies have already invaded his thoughts, I push them back by inviting the power of the Holy Spirit to cleanse his mind. Lord, You have given me authority “over all the power of the enemy” (Luke 10:19). By that authority given to me in Christ Jesus, I command all lying spirits away from my husband’s mind. I proclaim that God has given (Joshua) a sound mind.

He will not entertain confusion, but live in clarity. He will not be tormented with impure, evil, negative, or sinful thoughts, but be transformed by the renewing of his mind, that he may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2).  


 Enable him to “be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might”(Ephesians 6:10). Help him to be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let his requests be made known to You; and may Your peace, which surpasses all understanding, guard his heart and mind through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6,7).

And finally, whatever things are true, noble, just, pure, lovely, of good report, having virtue, or anything praiseworthy, let him think on these things (Phil 4:8).


MAKE THIS DECLARATION EVERY DAY.

Today, {mention the date}, I take authority against anything that is a hindrance or stumbling block in our marriage. I stand against Pain, Jealousy, Bitterness, Betrayal, Anger, Unforgiveness, Hurt, Lying Tongue, Hatred, and Sorrow.

I turn away from everything in my life and around me that gives Satan the power and legality to attack my marriage, in the name of Jesus.

I declare null and void anything and everything in the life of my husband and around him that gives Satan the power and legality to attack our marriage, in the name of Jesus.

I declare and decree that;

My children are a success and will excel in school and in life, in Jesus name.

My husband is a success and will excel in life, in Jesus name.

I too will be a success and will excel in life, in Jesus name.


Satan you have no power over my marriage because you did not create it. It was created by God and it is blessed by him.

Lord, I surrender my marriage to you now, in the name of Jesus.


Day 3

PRAY THAT HE WILL SHOW YOUR CHILDREN GOD’S LOVE. 

Pray for him to be a godly father and to show our children the love of God not only by his words, but also by his actions. 

John 13:35 “By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”


Prayer for His Fatherhood

 Lord, teach (Joshua) to be a good father. Where it was not modeled to him according to Your ways, heal those areas and help him to forgive his dad. Give him revelation of You and a hunger in his heart to really know You as his heavenly Father. Draw him close to spend time in Your presence so he can become more like You, and fully understand Your Father’s heart of compassion and love toward him. Grow that same heart in him for his children. Help him to balance mercy, judgment, and instruction the way You do.

Though You require obedience, You are quick to acknowledge a repentant heart. Make him that way, too. Show him when to discipline and how. Help him to see that he who loves his child disciplines him promptly (Proverbs 13:24). May he never provoke “his children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord”(Ephesians 6:4). I pray that we will be united in the rules we set for our children, and be in full agreement as to how they are raised. I pray that there will be no strife or argument over how to handle them and the issues that surround their lives. 


 Give him skills of communication with his children. I pray that he will not be stern, hard, cruel, cold, abusive, noncommunicative, passive, critical, weak, uninterested, neglectful, undependable, or uninvolved. Help him instead to be kind. loving, soft-hearted, warm, interested, affirming, affectionate, involved, strong, consistent, dependable, verbally communicative, understanding and patient. May he require and inspire his children to honor him as their father so that their lives will be long and blessed.


 Lord, I know we pass a spiritual inheritance to our children. Let the heritage he passes on be one rich in the fullness of Your Holy Spirit. Enable him to model clearly a walk of submission to Your laws. May he delight in his children and long to grow them up Your way. Being a good father is something he wants to be very much. I pray that You would give him the desire of his heart. 


MAKE THIS DECLARATION EVERY DAY.

Day 4

 

PRAY THAT HE WILL  BE A GODLY LEADER.

 Pray for your husband to be a godly leader at work, in church, in your family, and anywhere else in life you may be. 

1 Peter 5:1-4 “So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, as well as a partaker in the glory that is going to be revealed: shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly; not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory.”


A Prayer for Your Husband’s Spiritual Leadership

Father, I praise You for the great wisdom You have given my husband through Your word. Teach him to love Your word. Then establish it upon his heart and mind so that he will always be reminded of the way he should direct and encourage his family and others. Lead him in the way that is truly life, so that he will be able to lead his children in the same way. (Deut.11:18-21)

Where spiritual leadership was not modeled to him, teach him from Your word. Provide other godly role models for him to fashion his life after. Teach him that true leadership is pure and kind, not harsh or demanding. True leadership will not try to ‘lord it over’ or force his will onto those around him. Whoever wants to become great among people must be a servant or helper first. We see this in Christ’s example, Who came to serve and give his life up for others. (Mark10:42-45)

Father, strengthen my husband’s faith so that he can lead diligently. Help him hold on to his courage and hope, so he can continue being a temple for You. (Heb.3:6) Keep him rooted and built up in Christ, overflowing with thankfulness. Teach him to weigh all matters carefully so he won’t be taken captive through hollow or deceptive philosophy. Help him discern between the vain, human traditions and principles of the world and the correct teachings of Christ. (Col.2:6-8)

Father, I pray my husband would stand and lead strong and in the power of Your might. The fear of You, Lord, leads to life. Do not let him stray. Should he grow slack, pursue hard after him. Do not let him wane in his faith. May he always be prepared to do what is right in Your eyes.

It is right in Your eyes for a father to impress on his children the words and commands You have spoken and written to us. Do not let him be intimidated by the call You have given him as a parent and spiritual leader of his home to talk about Your Word to his children. Rather, give my husband the courage and ability to talk about them sitting at home, walking along the road, lying down or getting up. (Deut.6:6-7, 11:18-21) May Your ways and what is edifying to growth be what first comes out of his mouth, training and leading his children and marriage in the way that is right. (Pr.22:6, Eph.6:4) In Jesus’ precious name. Amen.

Lord, I surrender my marriage to you now, in the name of Jesus.


Day 5

 

PRAY FOR YOUR HUSBAND’S SEXUALITY

 Pray for your sex life to be vibrant and not to get dull with time. Pray for you both to want to be pleasing to the other. 

1 Corinthians 7:4 “The wife’s body does not belong to her alone but also to her husband. In the same way, the husband’s body does not belong to him alone but also to his wife.”

Prayer for His Sexuality

 Lord, bless my husband’s sexuality and make it an area of great fulfillment for him. Restore what needs to be restored, balance what needs to be balanced. Protect us from apathy, disappointment, criticism, busyness, unforgiveness, deadness, or disinterest. I pray that we will make time for one another, communicate our true feelings openly, and remain sensitive to what each other needs. 


 Keep us sexually pure in mind and body, and close the door to anything lustful or illicit that seeks to encroach upon us. Deliver us from the bondage of past mistakes. Remove from our midst the effects of any sexual experience- in thought or deed- that happened outside of our relationship. Take away anyone or anything from our lives that would inspire temptation to infidelity.

Help us to “abstain from sexual immorality” so that each of us will know “how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor” (1 Thess. 4:3-5). I pray that we will desire each other and no one else. Show me how to make myself attractive and desirable to him and be the kind of partner he needs. I pray that neither of us will ever be tempted to think about seeking fulfillment elsewhere.


 I realize that an important part of my ministry to my husband is sexual. Help me to never use it as a weapon or means of manipulation by giving and withholding it for selfish reasons. I commit this area of our lives to You, Lord. May it be continually new and alive. Make it all that You created it to be.

  
Prayer II for His Affection

Lord, I pray for open physical affection between my husband and me. Enable each of us to lay aside self-consciousness or apathy and be effusive in our display of love. Help us to demonstrate how much we care for and value each other. Remind us throughout the day to affectionately touch one another in some way. Help us not to be cold, undemonstrative, uninterested or remote.

Enable us to be warm, tender, compassionate, loving and adoring. Break through any hardheadedness on our part that refuses to change and grow. If one of us is less affectionate to the other’s detriment, bring us into balance. 


 Where any lack of affection has planted a negative view of marriage in our children, or taught them an incorrect way of relating to a marriage partner, help us to model the right way so they can observe it. Show us how to openly confess our errors to them and demonstrate or commitment to live differently. 


 Change our habits of indifference or busyness. May we not so take each other for granted that we don’t make the effort to reach out and touch one another with affection. Help us not to weaken the marriage through neglect of this vital means of communication. I pray that we always “greet one another with a kiss of love” (1 Peter 5:14). I know that only the transforming power of the Holy Spirit can make changes that last. I trust You to transform us and make us the husband and wife you called us to be.


MAKE THIS DECLARATION EVERY DAY.

Today, {mention the date}, I take authority against anything that is a hindrance or stumbling block in our marriage. I stand against Pain, Jealousy, Bitterness, Anger, Unforgiveness, Hurt, Lying Tongue, Hatred, and Sorrow.

I turn away from everything in my life and around me that gives Satan the power and legality to attack my marriage, in the name of Jesus.

I declare null and void anything and everything in the life of my husband and around him that gives Satan the power and legality to attack our marriage, in the name of Jesus.

I declare and decree that;

My children are a success and will excel in school and in life, in Jesus name.

My husband is a success and will excel in life, in Jesus name.

I too will be a success and will excel in life, in Jesus name.


Satan you have no power over my marriage because you did not create it. It was created by God and it is blessed by him.

Lord, I surrender my marriage to you now, in the name of Jesus.

Day 6

PRAY FOR HIS FIDELITY. 

Pray for him to be faithful to you. In a culture that is all about self satisfaction, pray for him to have a faithful heart. 

Hebrews 13:4 “Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.

It is a husband and wife’s responsibility to protect their marriage from harm, and in some cases protect it from their own selfish desire and pride.

Titus 2:5 tells women to be good “keepers” of their home.

The word keeper there is, oikourgos (Strong’s) in the Greek translation. It’s a compound word formed from the root words, oikos (Strong’s) house, and ouros – to guard or be ware.

See the use of that word “ouros” again in this verse:

Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. – 1 Peter 1:5

It means to guard, protect, and shield.

In much the same way, we are to instructed to guard and protect our home (that includes our marriage) from harm.

Here’s something important to note about a watchman: he isn’t reactive–he’s proactive. He doesn’t wait until the enemy is upon them to sound the alarm. A watchman climbs the tower at the city gates, and he carefully watches. He knows that danger could be lurking around the corner at any time and it’s his job keep an eye out for it.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: – 1 Peter 5:8

With that in mind, let’s look at five ways to start protecting your marriage:

1. Pray often and pray together – We have been given the incredible opportunity to enter the throne room, and bring our marriage before the King of all Kings. When we stop to consider how valuable this gift is, you have to wonder why it’s ever a last resort.

2. Pay attention to each other’s needs – Unresolved hurt and anger can take root in a person’s heart. Communicate wisely by listening to each other and being sensitive to the needs of your spouse.

3. Be careful about outside relationships – Innocent friendships can easily escalate between men and women. Honour God and honour your spouse by keeping a safe distance.

4. Pull back the reigns on social media – Don’t let the internet become a priority in your home. Practice putting down your phone when you’re together and closing the laptop for some face-to-face time.

5. Control Your Thoughts – Don’t keep a mental record of wrongs. Don’t harbour resentment. Don’t feed unforgiveness. Don’t entertain thoughts of divorce. Don’t entertain thoughts of infedelity. Control your thoughts by taking them captive. Don’t let your thoughts control you–control them. Bring them into obedience. Defy them with the truth of scripture. Stand strong. James 4:7 tells us to, “resist the devil and he will flee from you.” Yes–those thoughts can be defeated. Keep fighting.

And here’s another scripture, that’s perfect to close with:

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. – 2 Corinthians 10:5&6

You are loved by an almighty God,


Prayer for His Integrity 

 Lord, I pray that You would make my husband a man of integrity, according to Your standards. Give him strength to say “Yes” when he should say “Yes,” and courage to say “No” when he should say “No.” Enable him to stand for what he knows is right and not waver under pressure from the world. Don’t let him be a man who is “always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2 Timothy 3:7). Give him, instead, a teachable spirit that is willing to listen to the voice of wisdom and grow in Your ways. 


 Make him a man who lives by truth. Help him to walk in Your Spirit with truth at all times (John 16:13). Be with him to bear witness to the truth so that in times of pressure he will act on it with confidence (1 John 1:8,9). Where he has erred in this and other matters, give him a heart that is quick to confess his mistakes.

For You have said in Your Word, “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:8,9). Don’t let him be deceived. Don’t let him live a lie in any way. Bind mercy and truth around his neck and write them on the tablet of his heart so he will find favor and high esteem in the sight of God and man (Proverbs 3:3,4).


Prayers for His Reputation

 Lord, I pray that (Joshua) will have a reputation that is untarnished.  I know that a man is often valued “by what others say of him” (Proverbs 27:21), so I pray that he will be respected in our town and people will speak highly of him. You’ve said in Your Word that a “curse without cause shall not alight” (Proverbs 26:2). I pray that there would never be any reason for bad things to be said of him.

Keep him out of legal entanglements. Protect us from lawsuits and criminal proceedings. Deliver him from his enemies, O God. Defend him from those who rise up to do him harm (Psalm 59:1). Fight against those who fight against him (Psalm 35:1). In You, O Lord, we put our trust. Let us never be put to shame (Psalm 71:1). If you are for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31). 


 Your Word says that “a good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire” (Matthew 7:18,19). I pray that my husband will bear good fruit out of the goodness that is within him, and that he will be known by the good that he does. May the fruits of his honesty, trustworthiness, and humility sweeten all his dealings so that his reputation will never be spoiled.


 Preserve his life from the enemy, hide him from the secret counsel of the wicked. Pull him out of any net which has been laid for him (Psalm 31:4). Keep him safe from the evil of gossiping mouths. Where there has been ill spoken of him, touch the lips of those who speak it with Your refining fire. Let the responsibility of those involved be revealed.

Let them be ashamed and brought to dishonor who wish him evil (Psalm 40:14). May he trust in You and not be afraid of what man can do to him (Psalm 56:11). For You have said whoever believes in You will not be put to shame (Romans 10:11). lead him, guide him, and be his mighty fortress and hiding place. May his light so shine before men that they see his good works and glorify You, Lord (Matthew 5:16).


MAKE THIS DECLARATION EVERY DAY.

Today, {mention the date}, I take authority against anything that is a hindrance or stumbling block in our marriage. I stand against Pain, Jealousy, Bitterness, Anger, Unforgiveness, Hurt, Lying Tongue, Hatred, and Sorrow.

I turn away from everything in my life and around me that gives Satan the power and legality to attack my marriage, in the name of Jesus.

I declare null and void anything and everything in the life of my husband and around him that gives Satan the power and legality to attack our marriage, in the name of Jesus.

I declare and decree that;

My children are a success and will excel in school and in life, in Jesus name.

My husband is a success and will excel in life, in Jesus name.

I too will be a success and will excel in life, in Jesus name.


Satan you have no power over my marriage because you did not create it. It was created by God and it is blessed by him.

Lord, I surrender my marriage to you now, in the name of Jesus.


Day 7

PRAY FOR THE GRACE TO AVOID SOME MISTAKES IN MARRIAGE.

Since marriage is made of two flawed, sinful people, it’s no wonder it’s so tough. We mess up over and over again.

Unfortunately, the mistakes we make in our marriage can make it or break it if we don’t learn from them and fix it.

Gracious ladies, if you long for a marriage that’s everything you want, make sure you arent’ making these bad habits that sabotage every marriage;

Not Putting Your Spouse First

There is a particular order in our family that God designed. God first, spouse second, kids third, then comes extended family and friends. Work and play and everything else in our life comes way last. 

As a mother, I know that it’s hard to put your husband before your kids sometimes. Your kids are completely dependent upon you if they’re young and we can get caught up in caring for them.

Your kids need to know that you love them, but also love each other. This grows their sense of security. When your marriage breaks down the kids are the ones who have the most to lose and they inherently know this.

And one of these days our kids are going to leave and the one that’s going to be left is our husband.

Work now to make things right between you and make putting your spouse first a habit of yours to have something to build on in the years to come.

The same goes for putting family, friends, work, and anything else before your spouse.

Not Praying for Your Marriage

The power of prayer is often underestimated. If there are things in your marriage that need to be changed, turn to prayer. If there is something your spouse struggles with, turn to prayer. Is there something you struggle with in your marriage? Turn to prayer.

Christ has the power to make all things new again, even your marriage. Do you have trouble knowing what to pray for? Start with praying for your husband.

Having Close Friends of the Opposite Sex

A married person should be very careful of having friends of the opposite sex. By saying this I’m not saying we should forsake these friendships. But if we have friends of the opposite sex they shouldn’t be close friendships.

You shouldn’t be spending time alone with this person, your husband should be completely comfortable with you having this relationship, and there should be boundaries that you and your spouse have previously talked about.

If there is anything that makes your husband uncomfortable about your relationship, since you should be putting him first, that’s a deal breaker. End the relationship.

If ending the friendship is a problem with you, guess what? There’s probably a problem with this friendship and your spouse is right.

If the other person is a coworker and you can’t just cut them out, talk this over with your spouse and set boundaries that you’re both comfortable with.

Putting Sex on the Back Burner

We get so busy with life, by the time we slip into bed at night we’re exhausted and too tired for this. But sex is a very important part of marriage.

This is a relationship your spouse can’t have with anyone else in their life. This is huge and a big responsibility. It shouldn’t be taken lightly.

I understand that there are seasons in life that change this. Having a baby or illness being great examples.

But, it is good  to prioritize it. You know, set aside time for it. I know, this may not seem romantic and spontaneous, but, you know, sometimes you just have to be practical.

Here are some ways to prioritize sex…

  • Decide that morning that you’re going to make time at the end of the day for it. Schedule it in.
  • Send flirty texts to each other throughout the day
  • Send the kids to bed early
  • Set up a babysitter or send the kids to friends houses
  • Turn off the T.V. and phones
  • You two go to bed early

Not Being Supportive of Your Husband

Not Showing Affection

Life gets crazy and hectic sometimes and this is another need that gets overlooked in our busyness.

We come and we go and if you forget to take the time to look your spouse in the eye and say a loving word or forget to take the time to hug and kiss, this is a mistake.

Take the time to show your husband affection and how much you love him. Your husband may have a tough exterior, but he’s not that tough on the inside.

Easy ways to show affection…

  • Greet your spouse with a smile, “Hello”, and a hug and kiss when they come home from work.
  • A casual touch here and there throughout the day
  • A kiss for no reason
  • A short shoulder rub
  • A hug

Not Meeting Your Spouse’s Needs

Ladies, you need to know what your man needs. (We all know what that is, women need some help remembering it sometimes  But really, aside from sex there are other things he needs. Men are pretty simple, but not that simple.

Men and women are created completely different and what floats our boats may not float our spouses, you know.

Tearing Each Other Down

Do you get angry and say hateful things to your spouse to tear them down? Do you run your husband down to your girl friends, family, or coworkers? 

Make a habit, starting now, to stop tearing your spouse down to anyone. Your friends and family want the best for you, but they didn’t stand before God and promise to love through sickness and health, for richer or poorer. If they only hear the worst of your husband and relationship they’re going to be advising you to leave.

If you want to vent to someone, vent with respect to your husband. Or the two of you can go to marriage counseling or see your pastor and talk your frustrations out there if you need someone else to bounce things off of. Regardless, talk to someone who wants the best for your marriage.

Do your best to speak highly of your spouse in front of people. Get a bonus for doing it when your spouse can hear you! Be genuine about it though.

Inviting Others Into the Relationship

Genesis 3:24 says,”for this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife…”

There’s no room in your marriage for your parents, siblings, friends, or anyone else.

This means you don’t run and tell your sister everytime you have a fight. You don’t tattle on your spouse to your parents when he/she spent money you didn’t have to spend. You don’t run your spouse down of any sorts to your friends.

Here’s why- In most cases, blood is thicker than water.

Your parents and family are more than likely always and forever going to be on their little princess’ side.

Your sweet mother-in-law is always and forever going to have her baby boy’s back.

I’ve known couples whose parents have been enmeshed in their relationship and I’ve never known a relationship to work out this way.

Inviting parents or anyone else in your relationship will only cause a rift between the two of you. Keep your marriage business your own and don’t invite anyone into it.

Having Unrealistic Expectations

If you’ve never been married you don’t know what to expect. You’ve read the fairy tales and expect your husband to be Prince Charming and your marriage to be what dreams are made of.

This can be true, your marriage can be dreamy, although much work is needed for this to happen. And the marriage of your dreams usually isn’t exactly as your dreamed it.

You have to remember not to have UNREALISTIC expectations of your spouse and our marriage. Have expectations, yes. But, make sure they’re within the ability of your spouse to meet those expectations.

A question to ask yourself is, does your expectations of your spouse line up with your every day life and with your spouse’s personality?

Men, if your expectation of your wife is sex every night, but in reality she’s wrangling 5 little kids throughout the day, you may need to adjust your expectations.

Ladies, if your expectation is to cuddle on the couch every evening and watch a chick flick, but your husband works 12-16 hour days, you may need to adjust your expectations just a little.

Dodging Much Needed Conversations

If there is something that needs to be talked about, talk about it. Don’t dodge it because it will cause strain or cause one of you to feel uncomfortable.

The more you open up and talk these things out the stronger your marriage will become.

Do you feel like your husband can’t handle what you have to say? Maybe not. Maybe you need to go visit a Christian marriage counselor or your pastor to say it, but don’t let it go unsaid.

Not Putting Christ at the Center of Your Marriage

I’m writing this last, but certainly not least. This mistake can be the greatest mistake you can make.

By putting God at the center of your marriage, your marriage and relationship is no longer about you and your wants and needs. They become about God and what he expects from you in your relationship.

It’s no longer about how do I feel about how I treated my husband today? or did I show my wife that I loved her today? 

It becomes how does God feel about the way I treated my husband today? and did I honor Christ in loving my wife today?

God is love (1 John 4:8) so he is the one who enables us to love our spouse the way they need to be loved- as God loves us.

Prayers for His Trials

 Lord, You alone know the depth of the burden my husband carries. I may understand the specifics, but You have measured the weight of it on his shoulders. I’ve not come to minimize what You are doing in his life, for I know You work great things in the midst of trials. Nor am I trying to protect him from what he must face. I only want to support him so that he will get through this battle as a winner. 

 God, You are our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble (Psalm 46:1). You have invited us to “come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16). I come before Your throne and ask for grace for my husband. Strengthen his heart for this battle and give him patience to wait on You (Psalm 27:1-4).

Build him up so that no matter what happen he will be able to stand strong through it. Help him to be always “rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer” (Romans 12:12). Give him endurance to run the race and not give up, for You have said that “a righteous man may fall seven times and rise again” (Proverbs 24:16). Help him to remember that “the steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, and He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; for the LORD upholds him with His hand” (Psalm 37:23,24).


 I pray that he will look to You to be his “refuge until these calamities have passed by” (Psalm 57:1). May he learn to wait on You because “those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31). I pray that he will find his strength in You and as he cries out to You, You will hear him and save him out of all his troubles (Psalm 34:6).


Prayer for His Temptations


 Lord, I pray that You would strengthen my husband to resist any temptation that comes his way. Stamp it out of his mind before it ever reaches his heart or personal experience. Lead him not into temptation, but deliver him from evils such as adultery, pornography, drugs, alcohol, food addiction, gambling andperversion. Remove temptation especially in the area of (name specific temptation).

Make him strong where he is weak. Help him to rise above anything that erects itself as a stronghold in his life. May he say “I will set nothing wicked before my eyes; it shall not cling to me” (Psalm 101:3). 


 Lord, You’ve said that “Whoever has rule over his own spirit is like a city broken down, without walls” (Proverbs 25:28). I pray that (Joshua) will not be broken down by the power of evil, but raised up by the power of God. Establish a wall of protection around him. Fill him with Your Spirit and flush out all that is not of You.

Help him to take charge over his own spirit and have self-control to resist anything and anything that becomes a lure. May he “abhor what is evil, and cling to what is good” (Romans 12:9). I pray that he will be repulsed by tempting situations. Give him courage to reject them. Teach him to walk in the Spirit and not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

Day 8

 

PRAY THAT YOU BE THE HEART OF YOUR HOME:

Often heard when speaking of a wife’s role, Proverbs 14:1 simply states, “A wise woman builds her house, but with her hands the foolish one tears hers down.”

The verses following that verse are largely unsung, but what we find there are practical instructions for building a better home. We know the woman of the home is also the heart of the home. May you be encouraged to become a better heart for your home, a treasure truly worth building upon.

Proverbs 14:2: “He whose walk is upright fears the Lord, but he whose ways are devious despises him.”

A wise woman seeks to be in right standing with the Lord so that she may stand pure and faultless in the eyes of God and man. She knows and seeks to function in God’s design for her role in the marriage. Her obedience to Him shows she reveres Him and trusts His will.

Proverbs 14:3: “…the lips of the wise protect them.”

A wise woman knows that her words are either a blessing or a curse to those around her and to herself. Quietly and patiently extending grace when we’d rather give our husbands 40 lashes with our words, takes a great amount of self-control and wisdom. But there are times when our words are wrong, no matter how right we are.

“She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.” (Pr. 31:26) “He who holds his tongue is wise.” (Pr. 10:19)

Proverbs 14:4: “…from the strength of an ox comes an abundant harvest.”

No, a wife doesn’t have to work like an ox. However,

“she sets about her work vigorously, her arms are strong for her tasks.”

(Pr.31:17) She is physically able to accomplish her duties. Each one has different giftings and capabilities. Do yours well. The thing about oxen is they aren’t fast and they can’t do it all. But they are steady and deliberate. Be deliberate like an ox, dedicated to your work.

“Diligent hands will rule, but laziness ends in slave labor.” (Pr. 12:24) Proverbs 14:5: “A truthful witness does not deceive”. Deception. Intentional misguiding.

A wife should never stoop to it, yet so often we deceive our husbands with well-planted words or questions, trying to manipulate him into something we want rather than being honest and straight-forward about the matter. Maybe you don’t lie. But what are your motives? Don’t indulge in deceptive manipulation


PRAYER

Lord, Help me to be a good wife.  I fully realize that I don’t have what it takes to be one without Your help.  Take my selfishness, impatience, and irritability and turn them into kindness, long-suffering, and the willingness to bear all things.  Take my old emotional habits, mindsets, automatic reactions, rude assumptions, and self-protective stance, and make me patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle, and self-controlled.  Take the hardness of my heart and break down the walls with Your battering ram of revelation.  Give me a new heart and work in me Your love, peace, and joy.  I am not able to rise above who I am at this moment.  Only You can transform me.

“Show me where there is sin in my heart, especially with regard to my husband.  I confess the times I’ve been unloving, critical, angry, resentful, disrespectful, or unforgiving toward him.  Help me to put aside any hurt, anger, or disappointment I feel and forgive him the way You do–totally and completely, no looking back.  Make me a tool of reconciliation, peace, and healing in this marriage.  Enable us to communicate well.

“Make me my husband’s helpmate, companion, champion, friend, and support.  Help me to create a peaceful, restful, safe place for him to come home to.  Teach me how to take care of myself and stay attractive to him.  Grow me into a creative and confident woman who is rich in mind, soul, and spirit. Make me the kind of woman he can be proud to say is his wife.

I lay all my expectations at Your cross.  I release my husband from the burden of fulfilling me in areas where I should be looking to You.  Help me to accept him the way he is and not try to change him.  I realize that in some ways he may never change, but at the same time, I release him to change in ways I never thought he could.  I leave any changing that needs to be done in Your hands, fully accepting that neither of us is perfect and never will be.  Only You, Lord, are perfect and I look to You to perfect us.

In Jesus name.

Day 9

PRAY THAT YOU WILL ALWAYS SPEAK WELL OF YOUR HUSBAND

4 REASONS WIVES SHOULD SPEAK HIGHLY OF THEIR HUSBANDS

1. OUR WORDS WILL INFLUENCE OUR HEARTS I know from personal experience that the more I complain about something, the more mired I get in it’s yuckiness. Things become a bigger and bigger “issue” in my own mind as I dwell on and revisit them. We must take control of our thoughts and “let it go.” Taking control of our thoughts starts by taking control of our words. Yes, our own words wield significant power over us. We need to pay attention to that. “But the things that come out of a person’s mouth come from the heart, and these defile them.” Matthew 15:18 If this is not the marriage you want, then make a conscious effort to STOP bashing your husband to your girlfriends and others. Take the matter to God and then, as He directs you, take it to your husband. For many of us, that’s all we really need to do. No more. For more encouragement, check out 7 Biblical Tips for Resolving Conflict in Marriage.

2. TO HONOR OUR HUSBANDS You are a trusted pair of eyes into your husband’s most private life. If you don’t speak well of him, how can other respect him? We dishonor and discredit our husbands when ill words and “poor me’s” are what readily flow from our mouths. Remember the Proverbs 31 woman? Proverbs 31:10-12, 23 A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life… Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land. Is there any doubt that she speaks highly of her man? He has full confidence in her. She brings him good, not harm. He’s respected at the city gate.

What a blessing she is to him! You can be that to your husband. How lucky he would count himself if you repeatedly and graciously forgave and overlooked his offenses against you. What a ruby you would be in his life. Proverbs 17:9 “Whoever covers an offense seeks love, but he who repeats a matter separates close friends.”

3. TO BLESS OUR CHILDREN You do know your children are watching you at all times, right? They hear you, even if you’re not talking to them directly. They feel the impact your words have as others develop a negative impression of your marriage and lose respect for their dad. I am so thankful for my own mom’s example in this. I have never… not once… heard her speak a word against my dad. I know this was a conscious decision, because we all get frustrated at times, and she never wavered in it. She is quick to praise him, and always has been. You know what? I learned that from her. I’m not as perfect perhaps, but my instinct is life-giving praises, not life-sucking grumbles. I’m blessed by her influence because it allows my own marriage to thrive. Proverbs 14:1 “The wisest of women builds her house, but folly with her own hands tears it down.”

 4. TO OBEY AND PLEASE GOD Do you realize that God loves this man more than you do? And do you realize the great extent of your own shortcomings before God? Yet He offers you and me grace. We honor Him when we do the same for others. And who gives us more opportunities to show grace than our husbands? In fact, in light of our own standing before God, this offering of grace is the absolute least we can and should do. “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen… Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger… Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” Ephesians 4:29-32 For more encouragement, check out A Call to Selfless Serving in Marriage: Keeping an Eye on Eternity. Let me challenge you to make a change THIS WEEK. Tie a string around your finger and resolve to intentionally speak well of your husband for the next seven days, not in flattery, but sincerely, focusing on his strengths and choosing to swallow the rest.


PRAYER

Dear God,

Thank you so much for my husband. I can’t imagine my life without him and he means the world to me. Help him to know what a blessing and a gift he is to me. Please help me to show my gratitude and adoration for him with my words and actions. Let me never take him for granted, Lord. Please bless him and keep him. Amen.

Day 10

 

PRAY FOR ACCEPTANCE WHEN YOUR HUSBAND HATES YOU

When Your Husband Feels Like Your Enemy

O God, you are my defender and protector and today I cry out to You because my husband feels like my enemy (Psalm. 59:1).

There is no end to the betrayal I feel. My husband’s words feel like daggers in my heart. This is the man who promised to cherish me. This is the man I promised to honor. How can this be?

He relentlessly pushes me away with his tone of voice, his posture, and his words. He slays me with his sarcasm, ridicule, slander, and lies. Day and night he speaks to me and about me harshly, and other times he doesn’t speak to me at all.

You know my husband’s heart inside and out. You have authority over the evil one that is instigating this division between us.

Rise up, O Lord, and help us. Rise up against this evil at work in our marriage. Shield my breaking heart from this unbelievable attack.

I am so angry at him, Lord. I am so angry that this is our reality. How could this happen to me, to us? Help me deal with this anger and not sin against you.

In obedience to You, I forgive my husband. I choose to forgive because I know that I am not free from sin, and I need Your forgiveness. I trust Your Word. You promise that righteousness produces peace and a quiet life. I desperately want this peace, Lord. Empower me to keep forgiving _____ and to faithfully confess my own sin to You.

You are a merciful God, and I plead with You to be merciful to my husband. You offered Jesus as a perfect blood sacrifice so that ______ and I could both receive Your undeserved favor. Neither of us deserve Your help, but I am so thankful that You are our river of life, our portion, and the source of all we need.

Please deliver my husband from the grip of the evil one. _____ is buried alive in his sin. He has been captured and made to believe I am his enemy.

But the enemy of his soul is no match for You. He is not all knowing, all-powerful, and ever-present, but You are! He is not Lord over the heavens, the earth, and things under the earth, but You are. He is a wicked one that runs when no one is chasing him.

You said, “It is finished,” and I believe You. I believe You are the banner of love and victory over all. In the name of Jesus, I place ____ and me under Your authority. Let Your will be done in our marriage, Lord.

I believe You are fighting for us in the spiritual realm. I believe You are moving heaven and earth to save us from the temptations and schemes of destruction at work in our marriage. I will wait on You, and I will believe. Please help my unbelief.

While I wait, I will sing of Your mighty strength and power. I will sing of Your mercy and loving-kindness day and night. You are my ultimate defense and place of refuge. You have been victorious through the generations to all who call on You in faith. I expect to see the victory in our marriage because You are my hiding place and I put all of my trust in You. My heart cry remains, Jesus is Lord over my marriage and my husband.

Do you see any of the following dis-connecting issues in your own marriage?

• Defensiveness

• Control

• Self-contempt, other-centered contempt

• Shame

 • Wearing masks, hiding

• Stonewalling, silence

 • People-pleasing

PRAYER FOR DEEPER CONNECTION

Heavenly Father we come before you to thank you for all you have done and continue to do in our lives and marriage. We come before you today, God, asking for a stronger bond of unity in our marriage covenant.

Father we ask that you will give us the ability to be a united front for you letting nothing come between us. Help us, Father to identify and work through anything that is not pleasing to you so we can continually reach higher levels of unity in our marriage – spiritually, physically, and mentally.

We are thankful and excited to see the work of your hand as we do our best to seek your face daily. We love you and thank you for all of these things. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen!

Day 12

PRAY THAT EVEN WHEN LIFE GETS HARD, YOU WILL R-E-S-P-E-C-T YOUR SPOUSE

R – REACT WITH LOVE

E – EMPLOY YOUR FAITH

S – STRENGTHEN YOUR BOND. When our marital bond is strong, respect flows much more naturally.

P – PRAY TOGETHER AND FOR EACH OTHER

E – EMPTY THOSE HARD FEELINGS

It’s so unhealthy to hold our feelings in, but sometimes letting them out can be destructive. So the key here was finding healthy and productive ways to talk about how we were feeling. This is, in part, why I started blogging. Clearing the negative thoughts and emotions goes a long way in taming our tongue when we’re around our spouse. Talking to a trusted friend or a pastor is great. Journaling is another awesome way to release those feelings. We did talk to each other, too, but we were sure to choose our words carefully and with love.

C – CONSIDER YOUR SPOUSE’S NEEDS AND DESIRES

Everyone copes with stress and hardship differently. My husband is very quiet and doesn’t talk much about the situation unless he has a plan to overcome it. If he’s not talking, he doesn’t want me prodding him with questions he doesn’t have the answers to. His desire is to get physically intimate instead.

T – TRUST YOUR SPOUSE

This speaks more to the wife trusting the leadership of her husband when life feels like it’s falling apart. It’s easy to trust your spouse when things are going well. It’s a lot harder to do when you’re facing a giant obstacle. With more than a decade of life-altering crises, I learned early on in our relationship the importance of trusting my husband. His faith in God is rock solid and I know he would never jump without first getting God’s approval. It may look like the choices being made are foolish, but with God on our side, anything is possible. Are you in a difficult season of life that’s causing tension in your marriage? Which aspect of the R-E-S-P-E-C-T formula do you think would be most helpful in your situation?


RESTORATION OF A MARRIAGE IN TROUBLE

Lord Jesus, nothing seems to be going right in our marriage. Lately, we argue over so many things. Or we walk out in anger or silence, too upset to deal with any issues. Sometimes we fuss about little problems that don’t really matter or hide things that really are important. But in Your eyes, Lord, everything matters. Pebbles grow to mountains when they pile up, day after day. When did it all start? Did we retreat into our own worlds? Become too busy to care? Did we stop listening to You and to each other?

Teach us how to communicate—to simply talk to each other again with courtesy and kindness. Show us again what love and respect look like, and what it means to honor and mutually submit to the other as a man and woman in love with You, Lord. We’ve forgotten all the basics. And we sense that if we don’t deal with even small problems now, we’ll be facing a much greater roadblock later.

Maybe we’ve forgotten what love is really like. Or maybe we never really knew. Regardless, Lord, our marriage is in trouble. We need you. No matter how difficult the circumstances, we want to face them together—with You on our side. You’ve told us we would experience troubles on this earth, but that You are the great Overcomer. With You, Lord, we can mend the tears and amend the errors. With You, we can build a successful marriage. In Your name, Amen.

Day 15

PRAY FOR YOUR SEXUALITY

EMBRACE AND ENJOY YOUR SEXUALITY

1. Consider what the Bible says about sex in marriage and reject teachings that say otherwise. Song of Songs describes a beautiful, sensual relationship between a husband and a wife. It uses language that is clearly sexual and clearly reciprocal – both of the lovers are giving and receiving, enjoying pleasure together. On the other hand, many women have learned, often from their church, that sex is bad. They’ve been told that it’s an obligation, something they “owe” their husbands. If those kinds of messages have clouded your view of sex, begin turning away from them. Read the Song of Songs and immerse yourself in resources that encourage a positive view of sex and intimacy. And pray about it, asking God to help you enjoy this great gift He created.

2. Recognize the way your body is made. Our bodies were made to enjoy sex, but most married women can’t wrap their minds around that truth. We’re so busy feeling fat or saggy or inadequate that we can scarcely imagine feeling sexual. But think about it for a minute. Our breasts, whether we love them or hate them, are exquisitely sensitive. Our skin craves gentle and sensual touch. And our clitoris serves only one purpose – creating a fabulous response that often leads to orgasm. So begin thinking about your body in terms of its sexual nature. Start small if the idea seems overwhelming, focusing on just one part of your body or one sensation.

3. Take care of your body. Many women are so busy caring for others that they neglect to care for their own bodies. And it’s hard to feel sexy and confident in a body that’s been neglected. So start taking care of your body! Feed it well, with healthy and whole food instead of processed and fast food. Get up and move every day; walk, bike, dance, hike, or play soccer with your kids — anything that strengthens your body, burns calories, reduces stress, and makes you feel great. Get enough sleep – 7 to 8 hours most nights. And do things that pamper your body – stretch, enjoy the sun and fresh air, use lotions and oils that soothe your skin. And remember – if you don’t have time to take care of your body, you’re too busy!

 4. Accept that sex is about you, too. Don’t believe the lie that sex is primarily about your husband, that it’s something you “do for him.” That way of thinking, which is sadly common in the church, distances you from your God-given sexuality, limits true intimacy in your marriage, and creates resentment. So begin taking small steps to embrace your sexuality. Take time to identify things that make you feel sexy or sensual and begin pursuing those things. Begin thinking about, talking about, and doing things in bed that feel good to you. And take the initiative once in a while – be an active, not passive, participant in your own sex life

5. Talking about sex is hard, isn’t it? Maybe it’s because we think it’s not “ladylike” to communicate our sexual needs. Or we don’t believe our needs are valid, or we think our husbands should “just know” exactly what we need. But we need to lay those thoughts aside, because they block honest communication and real intimacy. So start the conversation. Tell your husband that you want to embrace and enjoy your sexuality and improve sex and intimacy in your marriage. Share what you’ve been thinking and feeling, what you’ve learned, and what steps you’re taking. Ask him to share what he’s been thinking, too, and really listen to what he says. Then keep the conversation going. Getting things out in the open is great, but it’s the just the beginning of finding solutions. So keep talking (even when it’s hard!) and keep taking small steps that allow you to move forward.

6. Consider things that may be squashing your libido. If it seems like your libido has taken a permanent vacation, consider the things that might have run it off. Fatigue ranks high on that list for most women. Hormonal birth control can play a role, as can some medications (including antidepressants). Physical and emotional illnesses, high stress levels, and unresolved marriage issues can all squash a woman’s interest in sex. And so can unrealistic expectations – our culture tends to focus on male sexuality as the “model,” so women often assume that something’s wrong with them if their sexual response isn’t identical to their husband’s. If you’re struggling to find your libido, Bonny’s Oyster Bed is a great resource. (If you’re dealing with significant problems that affect libido, sex, and intimacy, including prior sexual abuse and serious marriage problems, please seek professional help to address them.)

7. Make space in your life for sex and intimacy. Busyness is the enemy of the lover. If you’re running from one commitment to another – all day, every day – you won’t have time or energy to embrace and enjoy your sexuality. So determine to make it a priority by creating some space and margins around your life, in order to allow sex and intimacy to flourish. This may require making some hard decisions. It make require reining in your family’s schedule, saying no, and letting go of some commitments. But it will be worth it, because it will allow you, your husband, and your marriage to flourish.


PRAYER FOR YOUR SEXUALITY AS A WIFE

Dear Heavenly Father,

I really didn’t know what I was getting into when I got married. Yes, of course, I prepared in some ways, and even tried to figure out some things ahead of time about what sex would look like in our marriage. But, as You know, Lord, it’s different going through the experience and dealing with my unique husband. Also, I couldn’t have foreseen the seasons we’d go through — times when sex was good, and times when sex was a struggle.

I want to bring my concerns, my hurt, my longings all before You and lay them at Your feet. I cast all my anxieties on You because I know You care for me. Guide me to the path I should take and teach me Your way.

Now let’s start with this body You gave me. It’s an amazing creation, able to accomplish so much automatically and at my will. I thank you for all the workings of my body that allow me to go through my days and do what I need to do. But when it comes to sex, it’s not always been an easy road. At times, getting aroused with my husband can be difficult, and at other times, my body is ready to go when there isn’t a chance in the world that we can have sex. How fair is that?! Orgasms can be like my best friend, eager to hang out with me, or my nemesis, avoiding me at every turn. I don’t adore every inch of my appearance, my body does weird things in certain angles (like why is my stomach hanging down like that? — blech), and flexibility feels like a thing of the past.

I need to see myself how You see me, how You designed my body, and how You blessed me to be with my husband. I also need more understanding of my body and how to help it cooperate with the sexual intimacy I need and want to have in my marriage. Help me to identify real issues that need addressing through medical assistance or counseling or exercise, and to have the purposefulness and persistence to follow through. Place before me the right resources to deal with those concerns.

Help me to feel beautiful. Give both me and my husband an acceptance and appreciation of my body’s own sexuality and help us learn how I can experience both pleasure and intimacy in the marriage bed.

My God, I also struggle with my background. I brought baggage into my marriage — teachings about sex that weren’t in line with Your Word, experiences that colored my perception of sexuality, and labels that I carried in my mind about myself and about men. Please wash away all the debris and replace it with truth.

Help me step by step to replace the negative self-talk in my mind with messages that align with Your design for sex in my marriage. Help me to demolish every argument and pretension against Your will for my marriage bed, to take captive of every thought and make it obedient to Christ. Transform my mind so that I will know Your will for me, even in the bedroom.

You are a God who heals, so I also pray that You will heal any rifts between me and my husband. It is indeed good and pleasant when Your people live together in unity!. Where my husband and I do not see eye-to-eye on sexual intimacy, I pray that we can move toward unity. Help us to listen to one anotherto communicate about difficult issues, and to make the personal changes we need to make to find common ground.

And this weekend, today, even now, I pray that you’ll open up my heart and my body to taking even one step in the right direction. While I long for a Red Sea moment, when You perform some great miracle that makes my marriage and marriage bed a perfect reflection of Your design, I recognize that more of my Christian life is walking faithfully with You. With Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path, showing me only the bit of road ahead that I need to see. Help me take my next step in the right direction, and the one after that, and the one after that. Until I am striding along on the road You want me to be on, and my husband and I are moving toward greater intimacy and more honor to You, our Father.

Lord, what I haven’t said here, You already know. Where I don’t know what to pray, the Spirit intercedes for me. You are, and will always be, my Savior.

In Jesus’s name, Amen.

Day 16

PRAY FOR HIS SPIRITUAL LIFE:

• That we would pursue the Lord daily, through prayer and time in the word.
• For us to be satisfied by the Lord first so that we won’t depend on the other for things that only the Lord can provide.
• That we would draw all of our strength and ability to love each other well from the One who loves us best.


A Prayer that Your Husband will Trust the Lord

Father, we know Your ways are only good. Your ways are perfect, Your Word is flawless and You promise to be a shield to those who trust in You. (2Sam.22:31)

Father, I pray my husband would be dealt an extra measure of trust. Show him throughout the day that he can trust You with whatever comes. Give him a peace beyond understanding so he can rest in knowing all will be as it should be in Your eyes. Where there is even a small measure of distrust, doubt or trepidation, remind him that You have proven Yourself faithful since the beginning of time and promise to be faithful and trustworthy to all eternity.

Father, when my husband makes plans that go wrong or don’t hold out, do not let him become discouraged. Remind him that this is only for a season, and that when he stands firmly on Your foundation, You will greatly reward him. Many are the woes of the wicked, but Your unfailing love surrounds those who trust in You. (Ps.32:10) Many can be the plans of a mans heart but Your will, oh Lord, that will prevail. (Pr.19:21) Let my husband rest securely in those  promises, knowing that Your thoughts and Your ways are above all others and You cannot allow what is not fitting to your great plan. (Is.55:8-9)

Father, I praise You that You have given my husband a sound mind and teachable spirit. Now and often, teach and speak to my husband through Your word and Spirit. Do not snatch the word of truth from him, so that he can’t put his trust in You. (Ps.119:43) Neither let him be a fool who trusts in himself, but establish him as a man who walks in wisdom, his confidence secured in You. (Pr.28:26, Jer.17:7) In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Day 17

PRAY FOR HIS FINANCES:

• That we would be good stewards (not wasteful) of the resources we are blessed with.
• That we would be able to compromise and communicate and figure out how to do finances together.
• That God would bless us financially and we would let that flow through us to bless others.
• That we would set goals together and go after them as a team.


Prayer for His Finances

 Lord, I commit our finances to You. Be in charge of them and use them for Your purposes. May we both be good stewards of all that You give us, and walk in total agreement as to how it is to be dispersed. I pray that we will learn to live free of burdensome debt. Where we have not been wise, bring us restoration and give us guidance. Show me how I can help increase our finances and not decrease them unwisely. Help us to remember that all we have belongs to You, and to be grateful for it. 


 I pray that (Joshua) will find it easy to give to You and to others as you have instructed in Your word. Give him wisdom to handle money wisely. Help him make good decisions as to how he spends. Show him how to plan for the future. I pray that he will find the perfect balance between spending needlessly and being miserly.

May he always be paid well for the work he does, and may his money not be stolen, lost, devoured, destroyed or wasted. Multiply it so that what he makes will go a long way. I pray that he will not be anxious about finances, but will seek Your wisdom first, knowing that as he does, we will have all we need (Luke 12:31)

Day 18

 

PRAY FOR HIS HEALTH:

• That we would set healthy habits.
• That we would encourage each other physically.
• That we would be free from injuries, diseases, cancers, etc.


Prayers for His Health

 Lord, I pray for Your healing touch on (name). Make every part of his body function the way You designed it to. Wherever there is anything out of balance, set it in perfect working order. Heal him of any disease, illness, injury, infirmity, or weakness. Strengthen his body to successfully endure his workload, and when he sleeps may he wake completely rested, rejuvenated and refreshed. Give him a strong heart that doesn’t fail. I don’t want him to have heart failure at any time.


 I pray that he will have the desire to take care of his body, to eat the kind of food that brings health, to get regular exercise, and avoid anything that would be harmful to him. Help him to understand that his body is Your temple and he should care for it as such (1 Corinthians 3:16). I pray that he will present it as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to You (Romans 12:1).


 When he is ill, I pray You will sustain him and heal him. Fill him with Your joy to give him strength. Specifically, I pray for (any area of concern). Give him faith to say, “’O LORD my God, I cried out to You, and You healed me’ (Psalm 30:2). Thank you, Lord, that You are my Healer.” I pray that my husband will live a long and healthy life and when death does come, may it be accompanied by peace and not unbearable suffering and agony. Thank You, Lord, that You will be there to welcome him into Your presence, not a moment before Your appointed hour.


Prayer II for Your Husband’s Health

Father, You are Healer. You know our bodies better than we do. You know our spirit best because it is from You. I pray that my husband’s body will be kept in perfect harmony, working together and functioning the way You designed it to.

Father, further on that note, we know we are to take care of our bodies, for they are the temple of the Holy Spirit.  (1Cor.3:16-17) I pray You would convict him to make healthy eating choices, not consuming anything that would harm or inhibit him from doing the work You have called him to do. Help him understand that he was bought with a price and he should honor You with his body. (1Cor.6:19-20) I pray he would not fall to the temptation of food addictions or any other harmful addictions that are not honoring to You, but in view of Your great mercy, offer his body as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to You. (Romans12:1)

Father, I pray also for his spiritual health. Urge him to obedience regarding being in Your word, learning more of You and growing closer to You, becoming more like Jesus. Do not let him forget Your teaching, but convict him to store your commands in his heart, for they will prolong his life and bring him prosperity. (Pr.3:1-2) Let him not be wise as the world considers wise. I pray he will seek first to fear You and shun evil for that will bring health to his body and nourishment to his bones. (Pr.3:7-8) give him wisdom and the knowledge to understand that his first duty on this earth is to obey You and glorify You. (Ecc.12:13) Keep him in perfect health so he may carry out Your will for his life.

I pray that he may enjoy good health and that all may go well with him all the days of his life as his soul also continues growing well. (3John1:2) At the end of his long, obedient and good life, I pray he will be able to cross over into Your great presence gently, easily, peacefully and joyfully. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Day 19

PRAY FOR HIS FRIENDS

 A person’s circle is crucial to their growth, development and success. The people who are around your husband could be either hindering or helping those areas. For this reason, pray that he has godly friends, wise counsel and accountability. Pray that any and all hindrances in the form of people are removed from his life and that God brings him divine connections.

Prayer for Your Husband’s Friends

Dear Jesus, You are our one forever faithful Friend. You are the One Who sticks closer than a brother. (Pr18:24) But, You did not intend a man to walk this earth alone and without friends in visible flesh and form. You have encouraged us to walk with the good and the upright so that we might not grow weary in well doing, or grow weak and complacent in our faith. So, Father, today I pray my husband’s friends will be those who are wise and gentle. Friends who, as iron sharpens iron, sharpen him and encourage him in his faith. (Pr.27:17) May he always be cautious in friendships (Pr.12:26), not choosing company that would lead him down a path that is not good. (Pr.16:28-29)

Father, I pray You would remove any interest he might have in pursuing the activities and ways of ungodly friends. Give him wisdom to see where he may need to discontinue a friendship that is not up-building to his character. Do not let him make friends with a hot-tempered man, lest he learn to do thee same. (Pr.22:24-25) Give him the knowledge to know he needs to avoid any man who talks too much, for such a person is prone to gossip and is not trustworthy. (Pr.20:19)

Father, I pray, also my husband would be a man who attracts godly friends. Remind him to be a man who listens before speaking, being more interested in others than himself, helping others before helping himself, doing for others before doing for himself, and not expecting from others what he doesn’t expect from himself. Encourage him to be a friend like Jesus, being a man of integrity, not easily swayed by men and paying no attention to their rank or name. (Mark12:14) for when he is such a man, he will also find such men to walk along side him. In Jesus’ name. Amen.


Prayer for His Relationships

 Lord, I pray for (his name) to have good, godly male friends with whom he can openly share his heart. May they be trustworthy men of wisdom who will speak truth into his life and not just say what he wants to hear (Proverbs 28:23). Give him the discernment to separate himself from anyone who will not be a good influence (1 Corinthians 5:13). Show him the importance of godly friendships and help me to encourage him to sustain them. Give us believing married couples with whom we can feel comfortable sharing our lives. 


 I pray for strong, peaceful relationships with each of his family members, neighbors, acquaintances, and coworkers. Today, I specifically pray for his relationship with (name of person). Inspire open communication and mutual acceptance between them. Let there be reconciliation where there has been estrangement. Work peace into anything that needs to be worked out.


 I pray that in his heart he will honor his father and mother so that he will live long and be blessed in his life (Exodus 20:12). Enable him to be a forgiving person and not carry grudges or hold things in his heart against others. Lord, You’ve said in Your Word that “he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes” (1 John 2:11). I pray that my husband would never be blinded by the darkness of unforgiveness, but may continually walk in the light of forgiveness.

May he not judge or show contempt for anyone but remember that “we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ” (Romans 14:10). Enable him to love his enemies, bless those who curse him, do good to those that hate him, and pray for those who spitefully use him and persecute him (Matthew 5:44). I pray that I will be counted as his best friend and that our friendship with one another will continue to grow. Show him what it means to be a true friend and enable him to be one.

Day 20

PRAY THAT YOU WILL BE THE CONTENT WIFE

God knows the plans for your life and mine.  He knows what trials we need to go through to refine us.  And believe it or not, He has a special purpose for all that you’re going through.  He’ll use your mess to bring a beautiful message of His love, grace, and redemption to a world that needs to see it.  And He’ll use you for this!  But sometimes we forget all of this, and we feel He has forsaken us in our situation.  But He hasn’t.  He’s with us.  He’s causing our faith to grow stronger.  He’s molding us into women who rely on His Truth rather than women who rely on our emotions when faced with hard times.

I love what the Apostle Paul wrote in Philippians 4:12:

I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.

A wife doesn’t become content based on her circumstances because we all know that life doesn’t stay the same.  And even if things did stay the same we’d still mumble and complain over how mundane things are!

Here’s a quick recipe for contentment:

Rejoice always,

Pray without ceasing,

In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.  1 Thess. 5:16-18

Do whatever it takes to feast on contentment today because this is a pursuit you’ll never regret!

Now godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content.  1 Timothy 6:6-8

PRAYER FOR CONTENTMENT

Father, I give all praise and glory to Your most Holy Name. Help me today as I seek contentment in everything I do.

No matter what journey I have to travel, I want to be contented, filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. Where I fall short Abba Father, pick me up, andlead me to victory. I choose to walk with you, always. Almighty God, when things do not work out the way I want or expect, help me to be contented. 

May I have joy in whatever I face. Let my light shine the midst of adversity because I know You are the all-knowing, most powerful one, who I have chosen to be in control of my destiny. Father God, as I look to You, I know who You are and who I am in You.

 I can find peace, just loving You and praising You, even in times when I don’t feel contented. Thank you for giving me the grace to rise above any and every situation that I face. I pray these blessings, in the beautiful and matchless name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, SO BE IT… Amen and Amen.

MAKE THIS DECLARATION EVERY DAY.

Today, {mention the date}, I take authority against anything that is a hindrance or stumbling block in our marriage. I stand against Pain, Jealousy, Bitterness, Anger, Unforgiveness, Hurt, Lying Tongue, Hatred, and Sorrow.

I turn away from everything in my life and around me that gives Satan the power and legality to attack my marriage, in the name of Jesus.

I declare null and void anything and everything in the life of my husband and around him that gives Satan the power and legality to attack our marriage, in the name of Jesus.

I declare and decree that;

My children are a success and will excel in school and in life, in Jesus name.

I too will be a success and will excel in life, in Jesus name.

WHAT IS EXPECTED OF YOU AFTER THE 31st DAY?

On the 31st Day, You will be expected to give a PERSONAL OFFERING in faith and gratitude that God has heard your prayers for the safety and wellbeing of your husband.

Therefore, on the 20th Day, YOU WILL MAKE A PLEDGE. That means, coming to an agreement with yourself on what you can give to God for purposes of this journey.

(Make a pledge in your heart, if you have a prayer journal, you can write there)

REASONS AS TO WHY PEOPLE GIVE.

Donating to the causes you care about not only benefits the charities themselves, it can be deeply rewarding for you too. Millions of people give to charity on a regular basis to support causes they believe in, as well as for the positive effect it has on their own lives.

So why is giving so gratifying?

1 GIVING MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD

The knowledge that you’re helping others is hugely empowering and, in turn, can make you feel happier and more fulfilled.

2 GIVING STRENGTHENS PERSONAL VALUES

Having the power to improve the lives of others is, to many people, a privilege, and one that comes with its own sense of obligation. Acting on these powerful feelings of responsibility is a great way to reinforce our own personal values and feel like we’re living in a way that is true to our own ethical beliefs.


Day 21

 

PRAY THAT YOU ARE YOU A WIFE WHO IS EASY TO LOVE.

As wives, YOU  need to feel cherished by Your husbands but sometimes in Your marital relationship the love extended by Your husbands towards you can sometimes lessen or fade away.  This can happen for a number of reasons:

1)  The newness of the marital relationship has worn off and our husbands don’t know how to show us love when those warm, fuzzy feelings have diminished.

2)  They are consumed by other pursuits, therefore, their focus is elsewhere. They are either busy or they don’t think there’s a need to give their wife the love she needs.  In a husband’s mind, he thinks everything is fine in the marriage.

3)  The man doesn’t care to love his wife, all he cares about is himself.

4)  As wives, we can make it difficult for our men to love us because our actions and attitudes are, well… unlovable.

Being that we are known sinners, our husbands have a tall order to fill according to the Scriptures:

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her.  Ephesians 5:25

So I ask you this question.

DO YOU MAKE IT EASY FOR YOUR HUSBAND TO LOVE YOU?

Of course, you’re not perfect and you’re going to fall short, but overall in your marriage would you say that your actions and attitudes towards your man make him scream,

“I can’t help but love this woman?”

Since love is an action, here are some ways you can help foster that love connection in your marriage…

1.  Give your husband respect, (whether he deserves it or not)

2.  Follow his lead and submit to him (but not his sin!)

3.  Offer to help him.

4.  Make eye contact when he’s speaking to you.

5.  Be trustworthy and honorable.

6.  Ask him how he feels respected by you and then bless him by doing it.

Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband. Ephesians 5:33

7.  Watch your words.

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.  Proverbs 16:24
She opens her mouth with wisdom, and on her tongue is the law of kindness.  Proverbs 31:26

8.  Have a cheerful heart.

Work on your attitude so your husband will want to come home to you.  No one enjoys being around a person who is constantly complaining and grumbling.

A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance, But by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.  Proverbs 15:13 And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD; It shall rejoice in His salvation.  Psalm 35:9

9.  Let things go.

Don’t hold a grudge.   This type of action and attitude hurts men deeply so don’t be surprised if your man pulls away from you.  The bitterness in your heart will rob you of the love you desire.

Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.  Ephesians 4:31

10. Continue to become more like Jesus Christ.  

As you grow in Godly character, this will naturally spill over into your marital relationship.  Of course, becoming more like Jesus doesn’t just happen overnight.  It takes time, dying to self, and complete devotion to following Him.

“He must increase, but I must decrease.  John 3:30

Now keep this in mind…  As wives, if you have a desire to please the Lord, the natural by-product of this is that you will constantly be seeking to respect and submit to your husbands. Well, this same premise applies to your husbands.  If they desire to please the Lord, then your men will be learning and seeking to love you  like Christ loves the church.  These two things are an on-going process for the type of marriage that God intended.


PRAYER

Dear Lord,

Help me to remember that my identity and worth comes from a personal relationship with you, and not my marriage.  When things are tough and my marriage is rocky, help me to remember that my husband was never meant to complete me.  May I not place unjust expectations on his role in my life, and remember that his affection towards me will not fill my craving for you.

And when things are good in our marriage, help me to not idolize him or put him on your throne.  May I keep my identity and self-worth rooted in your grace alone. Amen.

MAKE THIS DECLARATION EVERY DAY.

Today, {mention the date}, I take authority against anything that is a hindrance or stumbling block in our marriage. I stand against Pain, Jealousy, Bitterness, Anger, Unforgiveness, Hurt, Lying Tongue, Hatred, and Sorrow.

I turn away from everything in my life and around me that gives Satan the power and legality to attack my marriage, in the name of Jesus.

3 GIVING IS MORE IMPACTFUL THAN EVER

4 GIVING INTRODUCES YOUR CHILDREN TO THE IMPORTANCE OF GENEROSITY

Sharing the experience of generosity with your children shows them from a young age that they can make positive changes in the world. Children naturally love to help others, so nurturing their innate generosity is likely to mean that they grow up with a greater appreciation of what they have, and will carry on supporting charity in years to come.

Day 22

 

PRAY THAT YOU BE THE WIFE WHO CAN INFLUENCE THE HEART OF HER HUSBAND

WAYS A WIFE CAN INFLUENCE THE HEART OF HER HUSBAND

  1. Be a wife he can trust.  Influence comes from trust and without trust, there is no influence.
  2. Be kind and gracious to him. He feels welcomed by this.
  3. Stand in his corner and fight with him against the world, rather than back him into a corner.  Every man wants a woman who is on his side when they’re in the midst of a trial.  Be the kind of wife who cheers him on so he can win the battle.
  4. Support him in his endeavors.  By believing in him and following him, this makes him feel like he can conquer anything.
  5. Esteem him in public.  There is no higher compliment in his eyes.
  6. Be a safe place for him.  Accept him for who he is rather than judging him for his shortcomings.
  7. Let him know you’re praying for him.  This shows you care about his spiritual well-being.
  8. Be a passionate wife.  Pursue him intimately.
  9. Put him before the children.  Show him you respect him by teaching your children to respect him.
  10. Choose to be a joyful wife. Be content with life rather than gripe about life.

PRAYER

Lord,

Thank you for the distinct roles you created for husbands and wives.  Help us to see them as a gift and not a hindrance.  Give me ability to submit to my husband’s authority that you placed over me and to be gentle in spirit when we’re in confrontation.

Help me to carefully choose my words when in the middle of a disagreement, and to be a strong help meet to my husband. Amen.

5 GIVING ENCOURAGES FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO DO THE SAME

Family generosity creates a bond, helping to bolster relationships through a shared goal and raising more money than could otherwise be possible through individual donations. Chances are, many of your family members are already giving to charity, so working together could help you to make even more of a positive impact.

NOW YOU KNOW.


Day 23

PRAY THAT YOU BE THE WIFE WHO CAN ENCOURAGE YOUR HUSBAND WHEN HE IS HURTING

 THINGS A HURTING HUSBAND NEEDS FROM HIS WIFE

  1. He needs your encouragement, not your rejection.
  2. He needs you to forgive him for his failures and wrong choices.
  3. He needs you to believe in him.
  4. He needs you to intercede to the Lord on his behalf.
  5. He needs you to be his friend and his lover.
  6. He needs you to love him for who he is and where he’s at, rather than his potential.
  7. He needs you to focus on your growth in the Lord rather than you focusing on his growth.
  8. He needs you to minister to him.  When my Beloved was broken, I made it my aim to build him up and speak the Words of Life into him as often as I could.  I’d share the Scriptures with him by either reading him the Word or by writing verses and leaving them on his desk or chair.  The word of God does not return void.  (If he’s not a Believer and he’s hostile toward the Gospel message, then just pray for him and make sure your conduct and attitude are filled with love and grace.)
  9. When your man is down, it’s easy for a wife to just take over….but I caution you not take this path without first asking your husband a boatload of questions.  If your man feels emasculated by your leadership, he’ll withdraw even more.  So tread lightly here.  Continue to refer to him and find out how he wants things done and then follow through on his request.  This action may provoke him to get out of his pit.
  10. You’ve got to be in the Word of God as if your life depended on it because that’s where your Source of Strength will come from.

Put your hope in the Lord as you wait for God to move in your man’s heart.

And so, Lord, where do I put my hope? My only hope is in you.  Psalm 39:7

Live a poured out life for Christ,


PRAYER FOR HELP THROUGH STRUGGLES

Dear God, 

My husband is dealing with an issue right now. You know what it is because you know what we need before we even ask for it. I come to you in Faith now Lord to ask for your help with this struggle. Please give my husband your comfort and your peace as well as your wisdom and strength. He can only get through this struggle with your help and grace Lord, so please let him feel your presence and place his trust and dependence on you. Amen.

Day 24

PRAY THAT YOU WILL BE A GRACIOUS WIFE TO YOUR HUSBAND

 HABITS OF A GRACIOUS WIFE

  1. Be consistent in reading the Word of God and remain abiding in Christ.  Jesus Christ is the Source of grace, therefore, remain attached to the Source.  A wife can’t pour out grace unless grace is being poured into her.
  2. I quickly learned I couldn’t be gracious in my own strength.  I needed to rely on the power of the Holy Spirit to move in my heart to help me in this pursuit.
  3. I’ve had to keep my eyes focused on my sin rather than on my husband’s.
  4. I needed to go to the Lord with my concerns and frustrations first.
  5. I learned not to stuff my feelings.  After I’ve spent time with the Lord, then I would respectfully express my concerns with my husband.
  6. When my husband failed or disappointed me, I had to learn to let things go and let God move in his heart.
  7. I’ve had to teach myself to focus on my husband’s strengths rather than his weaknesses.
  8. I would surround myself with other wives who desired to be gracious towards their husbands.  If I couldn’t find any because they were just learning this biblical concept, then I would try to influence them!  This pursuit was and still is a great source of accountability for me.

PRAYER

LORD, I thank You for my husband. Thank You for creating him in Your image, designing him for greatness and strength.

God, please give my husband the joy of knowing true wisdom and following good counsel. Help him to distinguish between Your life-giving truth and the enemy’s destructive deception. Give him godly friends who will challenge him to spiritual greatness.

God, I pray that my husband will read Your Word daily, eager to meet with You and to hear Your voice. Make him more hungry for You than for anything else in his life. Help him to meditate on the Scriptures all day long so that his spirit is refreshed, his thinking is renewed, and his life is transformed.

I pray that my husband will be like a great tree planted by streams of water, its branches reaching up to the sky. May my husband be a mighty man of God, strong in character. In his spirit, may his arms be lifted in praise to You all day long. May he raise his requests and burdens to You.

I pray that my husband will be firmly grounded and established in Your supportive, nurturing love. May his roots grow deep, seeking and finding the unseen aquifer of Living Water. May he continually drink in Your energizing Spirit. I pray that the ministry and influence of the Spirit will flow into every aspect of my husband’s life.

Lord, please enable my husband to be like a tree with thick foliage, shielding those within its shade. Help him to be an effective protector for his family. Cause him to be alert to danger, and give him the courage and wisdom to know how to guard his family well, both physically and spiritually. Make him vigilant in prayer. Show him how to be a shelter for our family in the midst of a harsh world.

I pray, too, that my husband will be like a tree filled with abundant fruit. May he be able to provide for his family in healthy ways, both physically and spiritually. May his own spirit bear the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, gentleness, kindness, faithfulness, and self-control.

I pray that my husband will be like a tree whose leaf does not wither. Keep him from compromising when things are difficult or when temptation is fierce. Protect him from the “withering” of discouragement or fear. Keep him leaning on You, drawing his strength from you.

Bless him with the full prospering of his soul. Fulfill all of Your dreams for him, and crown his efforts for You with success.

And, Lord, show me, please, how to bring strength and refreshment to my husband, encouraging and supporting him. As I lift him up to You, I thank You that You are raising him up into greatness.

Day 25

PRAY THAT YOU WILL BE THE STRENGTH OF YOUR MARRIAGE

An excellent wife is the crown of her husband, but she who causes shame is like rottenness in his bones.  

Proverbs 12:4

Gracious wife, I know you want a marriage where you are  an excellent wife, one who is a crown to your  man, rather than a wife who causes him shame and brings rottenness in his bones. Wow, those are some tough words to swallow! So you must  strive to do these 15 things to strengthen your  marriage.

1. Respect him. Respecting your man lets him know you believe in him and that you support him, his vision, and his leadership abilities.

…and let the wife see that she respects her husband. Ephesians 5:33

2. Pray for him.

3. Encourage him.

4. Follow him

5. Put him before your children

6. Help him and serve him

And the LORD God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.”  Genesis 2:18

7. Accept him, shortcomings and all.  

8. Desire him.

9. Forgive him- let things go, otherwise, you’ll be bitter.  

For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. Matthew 6:14

10. Do your best to not treat him like a child.  Be his wife, not his mother.
11. Be content with how much money he makes.
12. Be content with his parenting skills.
13. Be content with his walk with the Lord (aka, his ability to be the spiritual leader of the home).

Now godliness with contentment is great gain. 1 Timothy 6:6

14. Be intentional about being a godly wife. Your conduct will help your husband rise to the challenge/occasion of being a more godly husband. Remember, you are a wife of influence!

Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives. 1 Peter 3:1

15. Leave and cleave; make sure you share your heart with your husband more than with anyone else, including your mother, sister, friends, etc.

Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. Genesis 2:24

When applied, all these things will cause you to be an excellent wife, one who is a crown to your husband!

Now, are these things easy to do? Not even close! It’s a daily dying of our sinful nature as we choose to live a life that is pleasing to the Lord.


A PRAYER FOR YOUR HUSBAND

Dear God, Thank you for your unconditional love for me.  I am so undeserving, yet you pursue me daily!  Thank you for your grace and for your perfect provision.  I am so blessed and grateful for my life and for my husband’s life.   Thank for trusting us with each other’s hearts, blessing us with the covenant of marriage. You have given us an opportunity to love each other unconditionally and sometimes that is hard to do, but I ask Lord that you would help us to love like you love.  Please show me how to be a joyful wife, a compassionate wife, a humble wife, and a truly forgiving wife.

I pray for wisdom. I pray that you would equip both my husband and I with whatever we are lacking so that we may bless each other and be a beautiful example of a healthy marriage to other couples. Help me to understand that my expectations for my husband may never be met, that he is human and capable of sin.  Give me a discerning spirit and the courage to speak truth into my husband’s life, which will encourage him.  Keep words of disappointment and regret, lies from the enemy, far from me. Lord, if (mention his name)  is struggling with anything, specifically  ill health,  please remove it from him.  Heal my husband and give him a strong desire to seek after you.  I pray that he is the spiritual leader of our family that you have called him to be.  May your characteristics manifest in him as he grows in his relationship with you.

God I ask that you would protect our marriage, keeping Satan and his ways far from our family.  Holy Spirit, walk with my husband today, call out his name and reveal yourself to him.  I pray that our love for each other continues to grow deeper and deeper every day.  Please grant us time to spend intimately with one another, and especially time and desire to pray with and over one another! I pray for restoration in our marriage!  May you be at the center of our marriage FOREVER and EVER!  Reigning in our hearts, motivating our love and guiding our actions! Grant this through Christ our Lord. AMEN!

Day 26

PRAY THAT YOU BE THE WIFE WHO BASES HER LIFE ON THE BIBLE RATHER THAN HER EMOTIONS

So, has your guy let you down again or hurt your feelings over the same issue you’ve addressed before? Maybe you’re at that point where you’d like to change him?  Or you just can’t forgive him?  If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, please know you’re not alone.  I get letters with these concerns from wives all the time!

Sometimes a wife needs to run to her Savior for comfort, acceptance, and strength when faced with things that break her heart.  Remember, you are Christ’s bride- first, and your husband’s-second.  Sometimes we forget this order.  But when we dwell on the correct order, then it’s easier for us to have a Christ-centered self worth.  And when our men let us down, it’s easier for us to forgive them.

Our men aren’t perfect.  They let us down.  They apologize.  And then they might hurt us again over the exact same issue.  They are a work in progress just like we are.  As a result of the Fall, they will naturally disappoint us and this disappointment should point us to our Savior.

We do our part when we share our hearts and hurts with our guys.  They do their part when they apologize.  Then we need to lean on the Word and not our emotions as we wait for the Lord to move in our hearts and the hearts of our men.  This process will cause us to be God-dependent rather than man-dependent, thus our need for a Savior.

Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.  1 Peter 5:7

Marriage Prayer for a Deeper Understanding of Each Other

Dear Heavenly Father,

We pray for a deeper understanding of each other. We’ve been together for a while, but we’re two different people who do things in two different ways. And so we ask that You’d give us the strength to be flexible when we need to be, and give us the patience to handle our emotions wisely.

Help us to be good listeners who are sensitive to the needs of each other.

May our differences sharpen each other to grow stronger in faith, and challenge each other to consider new things.

Bind us together in unity, and use our differences to strengthen that bond.

In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

Here are some examples of decisions that many of you deal with:

Should you move to a specific area?  

Choose a job across the country?  

Put your kids in a certain program or school?  

 Sign up for a Bible study?  

Help serve on a committee?  The list could go on.

Bottom line:  wives  make hundreds of decisions on a regular basis, but how do we know if they are what’s Biblically best for you?

Here are some ways to help you with the decision-making process.

4 QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF SO YOU CAN MAKE WISE DECISIONS

1.  Will your decision bring you to a place where you’re closer to Christ or further away from Him?

All things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful; all things are lawful for me, but not all things edify.  Let no one seek his own, but each one the other’s well-being.  1 Corinthians 10:23,24

2.  Will your decision bring you to a place that’ll cause another Believer to stumble?

“But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea.  Mark 9:42

So if what I eat causes another believer to sin, I will never eat meat again as long as I live—for I don’t want to cause another believer to stumble.  1 Cor. 8:13 (NLT)

3.  Will your decision cause you to be strengthened, encouraged, and equipped in the Lord?

I am warning you ahead of time, dear friends. Be on guard so that you will not be carried away by the errors of these wicked people and lose your own secure footing.  Rather, you must grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. All glory to him, both now and forever! Amen.  2 Peter 3:17,18 (NLT)

4.  Will your decision ultimately glorify the Lord?

Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.  1 Cor. 10:31

Remember, you have the Holy Spirit guiding you.  Slow down and quiet your life so you can hear His voice as He directs your steps!

Reasons behind praying for guidance in decision making

God is the foundation of all wisdom. He alone has the ability to view your life in a comprehensive standpoint. We see a portion of the picture, but God sees it all. Involving Him in your prayers as you go through life decision will assure your life success.

  1. So that God can help us understand our choices more clearly, and then decide which is best for us to choose.
  2. So that we can seek God’s will before taking a major decision that will affect our lives.
  3. It’s because God loves us, He wants what is best for us and He wants to guide us.
  4. Since God is Omniscience, Omnipotent and Omnipresence – it means His ways are always best. So we need His best plan to help us through our decisions.
  5. So that we will not fall prey to Satan’s deceit in making the wrong decision that might look so correct in our eyes.

Prayers for guidance in decision making, goes a long way in helping us act the mind and will of God for our lives. Through prayers, the Holy Spirit our Counselor who is ever with us, bids us to bring our decisions before Him.


WHEN FEELING UNCERTAIN ABOUT YOUR DECISION PRAYER


Almighty God, you are the great I am, nothing is too difficult for you. Father, I am currently facing a difficult time, I need to make a major decision in my life, but I don’t know how to go about it. Uncertainty has clouded my mind, and I feel like I am drifting away. Lord, remove hesitation from my heart so that I can be able to make the right decisions. Fill me up so that I may follow your guidance without any fear or doubt in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Day 28

PRAY THAT YOU WILL BE THE FAITH-FILLED WIFE.

Did you know that God has given each one of us a measure of faith?  Check out what the Word says about this…

For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.  Romans 12:3

The Spiritual Gift of Faith

And some Believers have been given the spiritual gift of faith.

God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us.  A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other.  To one person the Spirit gives the ability to give wise advice; to another the same Spirit gives a message of special knowledge.  The same Spirit gives great faith to another, and to someone else the one Spirit gives the gift of healing.  1 Corinthians 12:6-9

Keep these 2 aspects of faith in mind when you and your man do not see eye to eye.  Perhaps you have more time to dig deeper into the Scriptures or listen to Bible radio programs throughout the day and as a result, your faith is stronger.  Or maybe God has given you more faith than your husband.  If either of these things are the case, then seek the path of humility and self-control.  If you happen to make the mistake of having a sort of spiritual arrogance towards him, you’ll push him away and that will cause him to not want to spiritually lead you at all.  

Now, this may be soooo very difficult for you because you feel that he is not directing your family very well, but let me remind you of something, sweet friend…your Savior KNOWS your situation!  He knows your man needs to step up to the plate, but maybe, just maybe, the plate is covered by you and your man can’t step up to it?  Or maybe he’s just having a hard time in life?

Here are some practical tips to help bridge the spiritual gap:

  1. Keep going deep with the Lord.  Don’t lessen up your pursuit of Christ just because your husband’s faith is not as strong as yours.
  2. Make sure you don’t condemn, criticize, or nag your man for not having the depths of faith that you have.
  3. If God gave you the spiritual gift of faith, my encouragement to you would be to memorize Romans 12:3.  God blessed you with this beautiful gift to bring Christ glory, not to bring you glory, nor to make your husband feel like a worthless spiritual leader.
  4. Learn to become more understanding and gracious when your husband’s faith can’t move a mountain.
  5. Ask him how you can pray for him that day and then ask him if he can pray for you too, (this shows him softness, humility, and vulnerability).  These traits are attractive on any spouse.
  6. Submit to God and surrender all areas of your life to Him….even when it is oh, so difficult!  Let the Holy Spirit lead your husband spiritually, rather than you having the attitude that you need to lead your man.  God won’t let you down.  He’ll protect you and He’ll be by your side.
  7. Ask him questions with a loving heart.  Ask him how he wants to handle certain situations.  This shows him that you value his opinions and it shows him that you desire his leadership.  Plus,  it also helps him to step forward and lead.  This is a very small thing, but it can make a huge impact in your marriage.
  8. Initiate spiritual conversations.  Ask him what he thought about the message given that day at church, what he got out of it, etc. and be prepared to share your thoughts on it as well.  Ask him about things in the Bible that you don’t understand, even if you think he won’t know the answer.  This might encourage him to open up the Bible and find the answers.  This is something you can do together and then discuss your findings.  All these things should be done in a non-threatening and non-judging way.
  9. Rest in the Lord.  God has given your husband the grave responsibility of leading his family.  When life here on earth is over, your husband will have to stand before the Lord and give an account of what he has done.  It is better for you to be by your husband’s side asking him how you can help him, rather than telling him he is doing it all wrong.
  10. If you are married to an unbeliever….you can still do some of these things but you’ll need to tailor it to fit your specific situation.  Some husbands are not angry towards God and therefore they may be a  little more open to what you have to share, but others can be hostile towards the Gospel message and a lot of these things you can’t discuss with them.  Remember, it is your conduct that will win him over, not your words.  Keep having faith in our Great Savior!

A Prayer For The Testing Of Our Faith

Thank You, Father, that You have promised that the testing of our faith produces perseverance and steadfastness, which in time will bring forth the beautiful Christlike character that You so desire in all Your children, but which all too often I personally seek to avoid, or regard as a time of bitter struggle. Help me Lord, to embrace any trials that You see fit to enter my life. Help me to look at the difficulties that engulf me with Your eyes, and give me an eternal perspective on all the problems I may be called upon to face, so that I may count it all joy when I am confronted with various trials, knowing that the testing of my faith produces the godly fruit of patience. Help me Lord, to use those times of testing as an opportunity to grow in grace, and as a springboard to develop a deeper and more secure relationship with You.

Lord, it is not alway easy to align our minds with the mind of Christ. It is often very hard to see trials in a positive light, and to embrace the various testings we have to go through as a thing to be highly prized, and yet Your Word tells us that life’s difficulties sharpen our faith, while developing our trust in the Lord, which is more precious to You than much fine gold. Give me a heart that understands and chooses to look at trials and tests from Your perspective, so that the testing of my faith may bring forth the righteous fruit or patience and grace. I ask this in the name of Jesus,

Amen.

Day 29

 

PRAY THAT YOU WILL BE THE WISE WIFE.

Getting wisdom is the first step to becoming a wise wife.  Simple, right?  But where do we get wisdom?  By attending a university?  Nope.  Getting a PhD? Nope.  Reading an abundance of books?  Nope.  Having conversations with intellectuals?  Nope.  These pursuits will bring you knowledge, but you will not obtain wisdom.  Wisdom comes from only one Source- the fear of the Lord.

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom.  Psalm 111:10

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.  Prov. 9:10

10 Steps to becoming a Wise wife:

  1. Fear the Lord.
  2. Study the Word.
  3. Study your guy.
  4. Be slow to speak.
  5. Be slow to react.
  6. Seek Godly counsel when needed.
  7. Listen to your guy.
  8. Listen to the Holy Spirit.
  9. Trust the Lord.
  10. Speak with kindness.

A wise wife will choose God’s ways rather than her ways.  Are you up to the challenge of pursing His ways in your marriage?


MARRIAGE PRAYER FOR WISDOM

Father, I am very grateful that You are so ready to give us the wisdom we need. You tell us in your Word that If we need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to us. He will not rebuke us for asking.

Thank you Lord that we can bring every request to you, including the request for more wisdom. As we face our trials and challenges and choices, give us you fresh perspective. Help us see life through your lens, through the lens of the gospel. Help us have confidence in our minds, and in the Spirit, who is always with us and helps us know and discern your will.

Day 30

PRAY THAT YOU WILL BE THE PATIENT WIFE

Wait on the LORD; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the LORD!  Psalm 27:14

A patient wife will remember three very important truths:

  1. God is not finished with her yet.
  2. God is not finished with her husband.
  3. God uses our circumstances and trials in our lives to mold us into the image of His son, Jesus Christ.

These 3 truths are quite beautiful in a blog post , but when they are applied to our lives it deeply hurts our flesh, and we’re not happy about that, now are we!

But don’t lose sight of your goal in marriage…  The goal in life for a Christ-centered wife is to become more like Christ!

Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.  Phil. 1:6

Choose to be a patient wife, friend, after all, women like it when their guys are patient with them, right?


PRAYER FOR PATIENCE AND STRENGTH

God of grace,

You make me softer, kinder, gentler, generous, forgiving and loving.
Yet at times I know these gifts wear thin. I feel impatience rising, I sense resentment brooding and revenge is on my lips.
So I pray today and all days for more of your Spirit. May the grace that you pour out open the door for a renewing of my mind, a restoration of my heart and a transformation of my soul.

Thank you
That in you I find new strength
Discover more patience
And walk with grace at work in my life.

Amen.

Psalm 143:8-12


Prayer for His Deliverance

 Lord, You have said to call upon You in the day of trouble and You will deliver us (Psalm 50:15). I call upon You now and ask that You would work deliverance in my husband’s life. Deliver him from anything that binds him. Set him free from (name a specific thing). Deliver him quickly and be a rock of refuge and a fortress of defense to save him (Psalm 31:2). Lift him away from the hands of the enemy (Psalm 31:15).

 Bring him to a place of understanding where he can recognize the work of evil and cry out to You for help. If the deliverance he prays for isn’t immediate, keep him from discouragement and help him to be confident that You have begun a good work in him and will complete it (Philippians 1:6).  Give him the certainty that even in his most hopeless state, when he finds it impossible to change anything, You, Lord, can change everything.

 Help him understand that “we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12). I pray that he will be strong in the Lord and put on the whole armor of God so he can stand against the wiles of the devil in the evil day.

Help him to gird his waist with truth and put on the breastplate of righteousness, having shod his feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace. Enable him to take up the shield of faith, with which to quench all the fiery darts of the evil one. I pray that he will take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful and standing strong to the end (Ephesians 6:13-18).


Prayer for His Past

Lord, I pray that You would enable (name) to let go of his past completely. Deliver him from any hold it has on him. Help him to put off his former conduct and habitual ways of thinking about it and be renewed in his mind (Ephesians 4:22, 23). Enlarge his understanding to know that You make all things new (Revelation 21:5).

Show him a fresh, Holy Spirit inspired way of relating to negative things that have happened. Give him the mind of Christ so he can clearly discern Your voice from the voices of the past. When he hears those old voices, enable him to rise up and shut them down with the truth of Your Word.

Where he has formerly experienced rejection or pain, I pray he not allow them to color what he sees and hears now. Pour forgiveness into his heart so that bitterness, resentment, revenge, and unforgiveness will have no place there. May he regard the past as only a history lesson and not a guide for his daily life.

Wherever his past has become an unpleasant memory, I pray You would redeem it and bring life out of it. Bind up his wounds (Psalm 147:3). Restore his soul (Psalm 23:3). Help him to release the past so that he will not live in it, but learn from it, break out of it, and move into the future You have for him.

BONUS PTRAYERS FOR YOUR HUSBAND

Lord, fill (name) with Your love and peace today. May there be a calmness, serenity, and sense of well-being established in him because his life is God-controlled, rather than flesh-controlled. Enable him to talk in his house with a clean and perfect heart before You (Psalm 101:2). Shine the light of Your Spirit upon him and fill him with Your love.

 I pray that he will be kind and patient, not selfish or easily provoked. Enable him to bear all things, believe all things, hope all things, and endure all things (1 Corinthians 13:7). Release him from anger, unrest, anxiety, concerns, inner turmoil, strife and pressure. May he not be broken in spirit because of sorrow (Proverbs 15:13), but enjoy the continual feat of a merry heart (Proverbs 15:15). Give him a spirit of joy and keep him from growing into a grumpy old man. Help him to be anxious for nothing, but give thanks in all things so can know the peace that passes all understanding. May he come to the point of saying “I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content”(Philippians 4:11). I say to (name) this day, “The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace” (Numbers 6:24-26).


Lord, I pray You would protect our marriage from anything that would harm or destroy it. Shield it from our own selfishness and neglect, from the evil plans and desires of others, and from unhealthy or dangerous situations. May there be no thoughts of divorce or infidelity in our hearts, and none in our future. Set us free from past hurts, memories, and ties from previous relationships, and unrealistic expectations of one another. I pray that there would be no jealousy in either of us, or the low self-esteem that precedes that. Let nothing come into our hearts and habits that would threaten the marriage in any way, especially influences like alcohol, drugs, gambling, pornography, lust or obsessions.

 Unite us in a bond of friendship, commitment, generosity, and understanding. Eliminate our immaturity, hostility, or feelings of inadequacy. Help us make time for one another alone, to nurture and renew the marriage and remind ourselves of the reasons we were married in the first place. I pray that (Joshua) will be so committed to You, Lord, that his commitment to You will not waiver, whatever storms come. I pray that our love for each other will grow stronger every day, so that we will never leave a legacy of divorce to our children.




Prayer for His Priorities

 God, I proclaim You, Lord over my life. Help me to seek You first every day and set me priorities in perfect order. Reveal to me how to properly put my husband before children, work, family, friends, activities and interests. Show me what I can do right now to demonstrate to him that he has this position in my heart. Mend the times I have caused him to doubt that. Tell me how to prioritize everything so that whatever steals life away, or has no lasting purpose, will not occupy my time.


 I pray for my husband’s priorities to be in perfect order as well. Be Lord and Ruler over his heart. Help him to choose a simplicity of life that will allow him to have time alone with You, Lord, a place to be quiet in Your presence every day. Speak to him about making Your Word, prayer and praise a priority. Enable him to place me and our children in greater prominence in his heart than career, friends and activities. I pray he will seek You first and submit his all to You, for when he does I know the other pieces of his life will fit together perfectly.


Lord,  I pray that You would protect  (name) from any accidents, diseases, dangers or evil influences. Keep him safe, especially in cars and planes. Hide him from violence and the plans of evil people. Wherever he walks, secure his steps. Keep him on Your path so that his feet don’t slip (Psalm 17:5). If his foot does slip, hold him up by Your mercy (Psalm 94:18). Give him the wisdom and discretion that will help him walk safely and not fall into danger (Proverbs 3:21-23).

Be his fortress, strength, shield, and stronghold (Psalm 18:2,3). Make him to dwell in the shadow of Your wings (Psalm 91:1-2). Be his rock, salvation, and defense, so that he will not be moved or shaken (Psalm 62:6). I pray that even though bad things may be happening all around him, they will not come near him (Psalm 91:7). Save him from any plans of the enemy that seek to destroy his life (Psalm 103:4). Preserve his going out and coming in from this time forth and even forevermore (Psalm 121:8). 


Lord, fill my husband with the fear of the Lord and give him wisdom for every decision he makes. May he reverence You and Your ways and seek to know Your truth. Give him discernment to make decisions based on Your revelation. Help him to make godly choices and keep him from doing anything foolish. Take foolishness out of his heart and enable him to quickly recognize error and avoid it. Open his eyes to clearly see the consequences of any anticipated behavior. 


 I pray that he will listen to godly counselors and not be a man who is unteachable. Give him strength to reject the counsel of the ungodly and hear Your counsel above all others. I declare that although “there are many plans in a man’s heart, nevertheless the LORD’s counsel-that will stand” (Proverbs 19:21). Instruct him even as he is sleeping (Psalm 16:7), and in the morning, I pray that he will do what’s right, rather than follow the leading of his own flesh. I know the wisdom of this world is foolishness with You, Lord, (1 Corinthians 3:19). May he not buy into it, but keep his eyes on You and have ears to hear Your voice.

Lord, You’ve said in Your Word, that “there is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love” (1 John 4:18). I pray You will prefect my husband in Your love so that tormenting fear finds no place in him. I know You have not given him a spirit of fear. You’ve given him power, love and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). I pray in the name of Jesus that fear will not rule over my husband. Instead, may Your word penetrate every fiber of his being, convincing him that Your love for him is far greater than anything he faces and nothing can separate him from it. 



 I pray that he will acknowledge You as a Father whose love is unfailing, whose strength is without equal, and in whose presence there is nothing to fear. Deliver him this day from fear that destroys and replace it with godly fear (Jeremiah 32:40). Teach him Your way, O Lord. Help him to walk in Your truth. Unite his heart to fear Your name (Psalm 86:11). May he have no fear of men, but rise up boldly and say “The LORD is my helper, I will not fear. What can man do to me?” (Hebrew 13:6)  “How great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear You” (Psalm 31:19). 


 I say to you (name), “Be strong, do not fear! Behold, Your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God; He will come and save you” (Isaiah 35:4). “In righteousness you shall be established; you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear” (Isaiah 54:14). “You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday” (Psalm 91:5,6). May the Spirit of the Lord rest upon you, “the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord” (Isaiah 11:2).


Prayers for His Purpose

 Lord, I pray that (name) will clearly hear the call You have on his life. Help him to realize who he is in Christ and give him certainty that he was created for a high purpose. May the eyes of his understanding be enlightened so that he will know what is the hope of Your calling (Ephesians 1:18). 


 Lord, when You call us, You also enable us. Enable him to walk worthy of his calling and become the man of God You made him to be. Continue to remind him of what You’ve called him to and don’t let him get sidetracked with things that are unessential to Your purpose.

Strike down discouragement so that it will not defeat him. Lift his eyes above the circumstances of the moment so he can see the purpose for which You created him. Give him patience to wait for Your perfect timing. I pray that the desires of his heart will not be in conflict with the desires of Yours. May he seek You for direction, and hear when You speak to his soul.


 Lord, I pray that You would bless the work of my husband’s hands. May his labor bring not only favor, success, and prosperity, but great fulfillment as well. If the work he is doing is not in line with Your perfect will for his life, reveal it to him. Show him what he should do differently and guide him down the right path.

Give him strength, faith and a vision for the future so he can rise above any propensity for laziness. May he never run from work out of fear, selfishness, or a desire to avoid responsibility. On the other hand, help him to see that he doesn’t have to work himself to death for man’s approval, or grasp for gain beyond what is a gift from You. Give him the ability to enjoy his success without striving for more. Help him to excel, but free him from the pressure to do so. 


 I pray that You will be Lord over his work, and may he bring You into every aspect of it. Give him enough confidence in the gifts You’ve placed in him to be able to seek, find and do good work. Open up doors of opportunity for him that no man can close. Develop his skills so that they grow more valuable with each passing year. Show me what I can do to encourage him. 


 I pray that his work will be established, secure, successful, satisfying, and financially rewarding. May he not be lagging in diligence, (but) fervent in spirit, serving the Lord (Romans 12:11). Let him be like a tree planted by the stream of Your living water, which brings forth fruit in due season. May he never wither under pressure, but grow strong and prosper (Psalm 1:3).


ALL FOR THE GREATER GLORY OF GOD.


END NOTE.

One of the greatest gifts that you can give your husband is prayer. Regularly, daily, you should be praying for your husband.

Gracious Ladies, your husbands will face challenges, attacks, doubts, fears, stresses and temptations in life. Because you have the privilege of praying for them and all that comes their way, I am requesting that you committ to praying more extensively for your husband on a daily basis.

 Praying for your husband during a time of need is always a good thing, but I would argue that it’s even more important to pray for your husband during times of smooth sailing. In fact, I believe that you should be praying for your husband every day.

As you commit to pray for your husbands, may the Lord of Hosts fight your battles and give you peace.
