31 days of prayer for your husband   august 2016  DAY 01

Today’s Prayer Focus: Leader of the Home

Today’s Scripture Focus: Ephesians 5:23

First, I pray for YOU.  This is a time for us to not only lift our husbands, or future husbands, up in prayer, but a time for us to grow in our own relationships with God.  Y’all, I pray that you feel God’s Presence in your life.  I pray that you grow closer to Him.  This month of prayers does not guarantee change, but I pray that your hearts will become more like His, that you will have a love for your husband like the church should for Christ.  I pray that you make the time everyday to spend with God praying over your husband.  If you don’t have time to watch the video, that’s okay, I’ll provide you with the focus topic and scripture reference each day.  I’m not doing this to receive praise of any kind. I’m doing this because God laid it on my heart to help lead fellow wives to lift up their husbands.  God gets all of the glory.   Praying over our men is something we don’t do nearly enough.  We’re their helpmates – what better service could we do for them than to cover them in prayer and lift them up to our Heavenly Father?!   I love you all and I’m here if you need me!

Let’s pray! Thank you, Lord, for the gift of marriage and the beautiful institution that it is designed to be.  Help my husband to continue to grow in You, mold him daily into the leader of our home that you created him for.  Father, today I lift my husband to you, as leader of our home, grant him wisdom and direction.  Give him confidence and strength, that he may grow in faithfulness to you.  Let my husband hear You today, encourage him, Father.  Bring other men, fellow believers in Christ, alongside him to help hold him accountable and to lift him up; other men that will help him become a better man.  Let him be an example to others, and others to him, on leading godly families.  I pray my husband is filled with gentleness, compassion, love, respect and wisdom. Equip him to lead our family with wisdom and discernment from You, with a confidence fueled by the Holy Spirit. I pray, Lord, that he will lead me and cherish me as Christ does the church.  I pray that my husband grasps the responsibility granted to him through You in leading our family.  Lord, help him to embrace his purpose and to seek you diligently. I pray he submits to you, humbly as your servant, eager and willing to do your will.  Father, lead him as he leads our family in your will.  In Jesus’s sweet and precious name, Amen.
