As I clicked through yesterday’s marriage challenge link-ups, my heart was overwhelmed with joy! My eyes teared up and I felt like my heart was going to burst – burst with excitement for your marriages!!!
Ladies who linked up – you are BEAUTIFUL! The world has failed to praise you for your inner beauty – but I will not miss this opportunity!
I learned a lot from you all yesterday – at one point I had to pull out my journal and start writing! I think it was the transparency of those who admitted that they had never thought to ask their husband how they could pray for him or were too busy to simply pray – that touched me. It showed me growth is happening!
One woman shared how she asked her husband in the morning how she could pray for him and then he called from work and thanked her for asking! Hooray!
Another shared how her husband leaves early in the morning, but before he leaves he always covers her in bed and says a prayer over her. Beautiful!
Another has been praying for her husband since she was 12 – at the time she was just praying for the man God would bring into her life. And now she is reaping the answers to those prayers. Teach your daughters to pray now for their future husbands!
Many shared great verses. Some have the book “The Power of a Praying Wife” but have never used it and now they are pulling it out and praying! While others said they had been through the book multiple times praying for their husband. Beautiful!
One wife shared how she had given up on prayer since God seemed to be saying “no” – then she realized that God was not trying to change her husband instead he changed her!
Another reflected on how her husband is the leader of their home and the toll leadership takes on a man. The devil seeks to see him fall and if he is led astray so is the rest of the family – she motivated me to pray right that minute AGAIN for my husband!
I recommended you say a sentence prayer for your husband every time you see your wedding ring on your finger. A bunch of wives adopted other little symbols to remind them to pray such as a bicycle, Starbucks cup, ambulance, their shoes, while ironing their clothes or a black Ford F150! Some of you have committed to fast! I am doing a cartwheel inside for you!
Oh ladies – I am just so excited and so blessed and I know your marriages and homes will be too. I want to close this post with what one wife wrote at the end of her post…”please say a sentence prayer for my marriage.” What a wise woman she is to know that she needs the prayer of others for her marriage also.
Ladies – do not be afraid to ask others to pray with you for your marriage. We all need prayer. I have prayed for your marriages – so I humbly ask – will you please say a sentence prayer for mine? Thank you and you are truly beautiful! Keep on praying and don’t forget to ask your husband today how you can pray for him!
Walk with the King!
