“If only he would listen to me . . .” Oh, that sentence has gotten me into so much trouble.
How many times have I thought that? If only my husband would take my advice, he would have a better job, be a better father, be healthier . . . (fill in the blank). When I’m trying to control my husband, what I’m really doing is trying to withhold him from God.
I want to be the kind of wife who spends twice as many words praying to God on my husband’s behalf as I do offering advice to my man. I know that what my husband thinks is nagging will drive a wedge between us, but when I pray for him, it draws us closer together.
Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.— James 5:16
PRAYER FOR TODAY
God, let me live openhandedly when it comes to my husband. Help me realize that my prayers on his behalf are more effective than any words I could speak to him. Let him always feel safe sharing his needs with me, knowing I will take them only to you.
Remember, tell me in the comments that you’re praying for your man and each day we will draw a name each day to win. Today’s giveaway is Praying God’s Word for Your Husband
