7) Faithfully pray for him throughout each day and tell him so.
Wives, dedicate yourselves to pray for your husband. Future wives, also dedicate yourselves to pray for your future husband. Begin today, right away, to build up the habit of praying for your man. He needs your prayers! Don’t you love him? Yes! Then pray for him. And if you don’t love him? It’s not how you feel. The truth is, love is a choice. Begin praying for him and let God fill up your heart with love for him. He will do it, even to overflowing!
My husband appreciates my prayers. He lets me know how it encourages him to know I pray for him. He even believes the prayers of his wife have brought many specific blessings his way! He says I have a “direct line”. All confessed believers do, of course. I think he just says that because he loves me.
But, it really confirms to me that my prayers are especially valuable to my husband. On your husband’s behalf, pray about everything in his day, and in his life. In time, you will be in awe of the far-reaching, profound impact your prayers can have on him personally, on your marriage relationship, on your children, on your family dynamics and home life, in his work, in his ministry, and on you! And, no doubt, there are blessings we won’t see this side of eternity.
There are many things we are forgetful about that at the end of this age won’t matter anymore. We forget to switch the laundry. We forget the diaper bag. We forget something at the grocery store. We forget about an appointment. But, let’s determine to remember our husband! Let’s give ourselves unto prayer; dedicate ourselves to daily remember him in prayer!
One of my favorite Scripture passages to pray for others as well as for myself is Ephesians 3:14-21. This morning I prayed this Scripture specifically for my wonderful husband. It was such a blessing to pray this for him.
For this cause I bow my knees
unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Of Whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
That He would grant you, according to the riches of his glory,
to be strengthened with might
by His Spirit in the inner man;
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith;
that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
May be able to comprehend with all saints
what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge,
that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly
above all that we ask or think,
according to the power that worketh in us,
Unto Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus
throughout all ages, world without end.
