One of the biggest blessings you can give your husband is to pray
for his day.
You might ask, "What's the point, what difference does it make?"
It actually makes a lot of difference. Christians daily face a
spiritual battle, and the choice is yours whether or not to
protect yourself and your husband in prayer.
When you pray for your husband, pray specifically. If the Lord
brings a specific issue to your mind during the day, stop and
pray about it. Be open to the Spirit's guidance.
Many of the workplaces our husbands go off to every day are less
than desirable when it comes to the things they have to see and
hear throughout the day.
Here are some things I have prayed specifically for my husband:
his safety, his heart (that he will work with a willing and glad
heart), and his mind (that he will be protected from unwanted
thoughts and influences).
If your husband is a manager, pray that he will be an effective
leader and a good role model for his employees.
If your husband has just started a new job pray that he adapts
quickly and eases into his new routine.
If your husband is unhappy in his job and finding a new job seems
the only option, pray that a better opportunity arises.
You might be saying, "What about me? I work too." Hopefully
your husband will pray for you too. The Lord has put our husbands
in our care, and one of our primary responsibilities as wives is
praying for his success both as a husband and a father. Many
wives have told me their husbands can tell if they are praying
for them by the quality of their work days. Don't miss out on
this opportunity to show your husband how much you love him and
want to support him.
