Pray: Completing Him Challenge Week #3


Photobucket
Hosted by Courtney at Women Living Well
This weeks challenge is to pray daily for our spouse. I love this idea. Although I pray on a daily basis for the Lord to watch over my husband as he is working, I never really pray for him as a person. I just pray for his protection. So this is going to be something that I know is going to change the intimacy of our marriage as well as bless my husband on a whole other level!

Here is a list of things Courtney states that we should pray for our Husbands:

1. His Wife -that's a good place to start right? lol!

2. His Work

3. His Finances

4. His Sexuality

5. His Affections

6. His Temptations

7. His Mind

8. His Fears

9. His Purpose

10. His Choices

11. His Health

12. His Protection

13. His Trials

14. His Integrity

15. His Reputation

16. His Priorities

17. His Relationships

18. His Fatherhood

19. His Past

20. His Attitude

21. His Marriage

22. His Emotions

23. His Walk

24. His Talk

25. His Repentance

26. His Deliverance

27. His Obedience

28. His Self-Image

29. His Faith

30. His Future

I believe that if I get into the habit of daily praying for my husband I will see a dramatic change in not only his life, but mine as well! 

I also love how Courtney uses her wedding ring as a reminder to pray for her husband.  She states to let your wedding ring be a reminder to pray this week. I want you to pray every time you look down and see your wedding ring. What a wonderful way to remember to pray!

Courtney also adds to the challenge to take a day and fast for our husbands.  Now, I have to admit, I have never been good at fasting.  I always start out on fire for it, but my flame quickly dies out.  But, I am going to pray for God's discipline and try to take a day this week and fast for my one and only.  I will keep you updated on when and how it goes!

My little sister just got married this past Saturday and our Pastor stated in his message at her ceremony that when you invite God into your marriage, what a wonderful marriage it will be.  He will supply all of our needs! Marriage takes three!


A wife of noble character is her husband's crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones. ~ Proverbs 12:4
