Gift Wrap Prayers for Your Husband

 31.1.12

Praying for our husband is a gift we can give him, a beautiful thing we can do every day. However, for me it seemed difficult at times because I always found myself praying the same prayer over and over again.



The best way to pray effectively is praying in accord with the Scriptures, praying the Word of God is the only way we know we are praying the way God wants us to pray; so I decided to try this little book to start praying more effectively for my husband:  Prayers of an Excellent Wife, by Andrew Case.

This book has helped me to pray in so many different ways that I had not prayed before for my husband based on the Scriptures. It has opened my heart to pray more specifically for things that I never used to pray. It has been a blessing to me.

One thing that I would like to make clear here, is that just like with any other of my favorite prayer books, I use these prayer companions as models, as mentors, as springboards to help me pray more effectively, using my own words.

Let us give our husband the gift of a praying wife behind him, every day, all days....

"O Triune God,
I love you, O LORD, my strength.
May You be to my husband his rock and his fortress and his deliverer, his God, his rock in whom he takes refuge, his shield, and the horn of his salvation, his stronghold. You alone are worthy to be praised.

By Your mercy bring him out into a broad place; rescue him, because You delight in him. Put all your rules before him, and may he never put your statutes away from him. For it is You who light his lamp; O  LORD my God, lighten his darkness. Make him abide in this precious promise: 'This GOD- His way is perfect; the word of the Lord proves true; He is a shield for all those who take refuge in Him.'

Give him the shield of your Salvation, and with Your right hand support him, and with Your gentleness make him great. With Your perfect law, O LORD, revive his soul. With Your sure testimony make him wise. By Your right precepts cause his heart to rejoice. And may Your pure commandment enlighten his eyes.

Keep him, your servant, also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over him! Let the words of his mouth and the meditation of his heart be pleasing in Your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer (Psalm 18 and 19)"

May His grace abound in us as we learn the privileges of being wives who constantly pray and intercede for their husband.

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
