{ 31 Days of Prayer for my Husband } - Day 4



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.

BTW, this prayer of 31 days HAS been done before on other blogs, a couple of them last year. So as much as I would love to take credit for this idea, I can't, but I am thankful for all of you joining me in prayerg :)


Day 4

Pray that your husband will grow in leadership skills in your relationship—protecting and providing for you. Pray that he will lead you wisely and love you sacrificially, so that God will be glorified in your marriage. (Eph. 5:25-29; Col. 3:19)



Ephesians 5:25-29 (New King James Version)

25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. 28 So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.

Colossians 3:19 (New King James Version)

19 Husbands, love your wives and do not be bitter toward them.


NOTE: A couple of you have let me know that you don't want to sign Mr Linky, so I'll stop putting it up and you can just leave me a comment if you're praying. You don't have to say anything special, just a quick "I'm here and praying" would suffice.

If you're a lurker, I invited you to come on out and join us, let's pray for the wonderful husbands in our lives, together :)

Well Sandra, we don't have the same beliefs, but we certainly seem to want the same things for our families. So, in my own way- I'm praying with you and appreciate your devotion.
