{ 31 Days of Prayer for my Husband } - Day 3



I feel that behind every wonderful blogging woman I have come to know, there is an amazing man, they are the ones working in the background. The ones providing for our families, fixing what is broken around the house, giving us a hug when we're down, listening to our bad days, putting up with the constant flashing of cameras in their eyes (admit it, you tote that camera around just as much as I do LOL).

So I think they need to be recognized and admired and acknowledged for the wonderful husbands they are and what better way to do that, than to devote a whole month of prayer to them. Will you join me?

Embark with me on a journey for the next 31 Days, in which we devote ourselves to prayer for our husbands.

Thank you to all who are participating, it makes me truly happy to know that so many wonderful women are praying for their husbands.


Day 3

Pray that your husband will be humble and quick to agree with God about his sin. Pray that his heart will be tender toward the voice of the Lord.
(Ps. 51:2-4; Micah 6:8 )


Psalm 51:2-4 (New International Version)

2 Wash away all my iniquity
and cleanse me from my sin.

3 For I know my transgressions,
and my sin is always before me.

4 Against you, you only, have I sinned
and done what is evil in your sight,
so that you are proved right when you speak
and justified when you judge.


Micah 6:8 (New International Version)

8 He has showed you, O man, what is good.
And what does the LORD require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.

This is a great idea and right in line with my "Living Love in 2009," which I posted about today at my blog. I will be joining you in praying for my husband!

Glad I found this here, and many others joining in this challenge as well. I just wrapped up a month of focused attention on my marriage and prayer is a huge part of that. Thank you for this opportunity to stay accountable to that.
