A Wife's Prayer

Do you pray for your husband? I do but most of the time it sounds like this..."Lord protect over him and let him have a good day. Send someone to his office that he can talk to about You. Thank you so much for a wonderful husband that serves You. In Jesus Name, Amen."

I thought this was a pretty good prayer until I saw this post for another blogger. Let's just say that I have failed my husband greatly!

A Wife's Prayer:

His Head - That he will look to You as Lord of his life. (1 Corinthians 11:13)

His Mind - That he will have the mind of Christ and think as the Holy Spirit would lead him and not the flesh. (1 Corinthians 2:16)

His Eyes - That You will keep his eyes from temptation and that he will turn his eyes from sin. (Matthew 6:13, Mark 9:47)

His Ears - That he will hear Your still small voice instructing him. (1 Kings 19:12, Psalm 32:8)

His Mouth - That his words will be pleasing to You. (Proverbs 19:14)

His Neck - That he will humble himself before You and be strong, courageous, and careful to do everything written in Your Word so that he will be prosperous and successful. (James 4:10, Joshua 1:8-9)

His Heart - That he will love and trust You with his whole heart. (Deuteronomy 6;5, Proverbs 3:5)

His Arms - That You will be his strength. (Psalm 73:26)

His Hands - That he will enjoy the work of his hands and see it as a gift from You. (Ecclesiastes 3:13, 5:19)

His feet - That You will order his steps and that he will walk in Your truth. (Proverbs 4:25, Psalm 26:3)

Who knew that you could pray scripture over you husband, from his head down to his feet. Our husbands need our prayer, they need encouragement from us and they need to know that we support them and respect them. It's even better to back them up with prayer and God's Word!
