Pray For Your Husband...

I must confess that I forget to pray for my husband (more often than not). Oh yes, I think about him, text him throughout the day, and anticipate his return in the evening... but pray? I forget.

What does praying for your husband do for you {the wife}?
1) It keeps your thoughts pure.
2) It keeps your mind and heart positive about him.
3) It keeps you humble.
4) It keeps you safe (there is protection in God's will).
5) It keeps you in communion with your Heavenly Father.
6) It keeps you content.
7) It keeps you watchful for God's blessings in his life.
8) It keeps you eager for answered prayer in his life.
9) It keeps you free from a negative spirit.
10) It keeps your words praise-worthy about him in front of your children.

Do you struggle with remembering to pray for your husband? Try this with me:

At the top of each hour, spend 2 minutes praying for him {specifically}. Do this between the hours of 8 am and 5 pm (give or take depending on your schedule). THAT'S 20 MINUTES A DAY!

8 am (Pray for his walk with the Lord)
9 am (Pray for his purity)
10 am (Pray for his friendships)
11 am (Pray for his witness)
12 am (Pray for his work to be honorable)
1 pm (Pray for him as a father)
2 pm (Pray for his safety)
3 pm (Pray for God to bless him)
4 pm (Pray for God's strength in his life)
5 pm (Pray for his visions and dreams)
