Day 2:  Pray for your husband’s priorities

 

Husband’s could get easily overwhelmed with all their responsibilities to the Lord, at home, as a husband and father, as providers, at work, at church, in his ministries to others, to his friends, etc.  Pray your husband would always put God first, and for his obedience to God’s word.  Pray his walk with God would set all else in order, and he would grow closer to Him daily in His word and prayer.  Pray against distractions, and that he would seek the Lord first.  Your husbands are commanded to love you like Christ loves the church, Ephesians 5:25-29.  Pray for love to increase in your marriage for your husband and yourself.  Remember if you want to be at the top of your husband’s list, he needs to be at the top of yours as well.  Pray you would show him respect and love, and for your marriage to grow.  Pray your husband would be an example of who God is to your children and family.  Pray he would reflect God’s love wherever he goes and to whomever he meets.  Pray for your husband as provider of your family.  That alone can be overwhelming!  Pray for his ministry and fellowship with others.  Pray that he would have a fresh filling of the Holy Spirit, and

 

Ask your husband if there is anything you can pray for him today, and pray for those.  Ask him if he feels there is anything in your life that you are putting before him.   You may be surprised at the answer!   Pray for those areas as well.

 

 

Verses:

 

“And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.  This is the first commandment.”     Mark 12:30

 

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”     Matthew 6:33

 

“You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.”    Deuteronomy 6:5

 

He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”         John 14;21

 

“Thus says the LORD of hosts: “Consider your ways!”   Haggai 1:7

 

“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.  So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself.  For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.”       Ephesians 5:25-29

 

“Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.  For if they fall, one will lift up his companion.
But woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he has no one to help him up.  Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm;
But how can one be warm alone?  Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him.
And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”      Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

 

“And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”        Hebrews 10:24-25

 

“And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.”       Ephesians 6:4

 

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal”           Matthew 6:19

 

“For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat.”      2 Thessalonians 3:10

 

“with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men, knowing that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord, whether he is a slave or free.”     Ephesians 6:7-8
