Prayer is a gift that far surpasses the fleeting bliss of a February day.
While I plan to post several gift ideas for the literary lover in your life later this week, today is about blessing our husbands (or future husbands!)
Below are a few specific ways:
- Give him strength to lead (Joshua 1:7), time to know his family (John 10:14), and a passion to manage his home (1 Timothy 3:4).
- Bless his work and show him daily how to honor You in his attitude and spirit; confirm the work of his hands unto Your purpose (Psalm 90:16-17; Daniel 6)
- Protect him physically, emotionally, and spiritually (Psalm 28:7-9; Psalm 41; John 17:15; 2 Thessalonians 3:3).

Thank you Hester! 🙂
I remember early on in my marriage I found myself complaining about every little thing Brian did or didn't do – until a much wiser woman asked if I had spent as much time in prayer for him.
A painful but powerful OUCH!
Love this post…when you pray for your husband, it's a lot harder to get frustrated with them 😉 So many people balk at the time-warped wife as "old fashioned." But divorce rates used to be much lower! Great blog Cathy!
You're so right, Celeste! I heard yesterday that divorce rates are higher for Christ followers than unbelievers. Bring on the "old-fashioned!"
Thanks for sharing. 🙂
