Day 4: Pray for Your Husband’s Work

 

Your husband may just be starting in his work, beginning a new job, plodding steadily through, or in retirement.  Whatever stage your husband may be in pray for that season.  Once a man gets married, he tends to carry the burden of providing for his family.  Pray for him as provider.  Your husband may not enjoy his job, but that doesn’t mean it’s not the Lord’s will for his life.   Pray for contentment in his work.  Pray against workaholism, and that your husband will find balance.  Pray that he would get refreshed and renewed.  If they are just starting out, pray the Lord would reveal their gifts and talents, and they would recognize God’s plan for their work.  Pray that no matter what they are doing that they would work as unto the Lord.  If your husband is unemployed pray against hopelessness and despair.  Pray his eyes would be opened to what God has planned for him.  Pray for a filling of the Holy Spirit, and he would be an example and witness in his work.  Pray against temptations and burnout in your husband’s job.  Pray your husband would understand that fulfillment comes from God alone, and not a career.  Pray that if your husband’s job doesn’t line up with God’s will that He will reveal that to him.  Pray for your husband to have strength and faith to get through his career, and he wouldn’t be tossed to and fro unaware of God’s plan for his life.  Pray against fear and laziness that may creep in.  If your husband is in the ministry, pray against burnout and getting overwhelmed in dealing with other’s sins day in and day out.  Pray his ministry would flourish and would be led by God alone. Pray he would give God that glory for his work, and not himself.  Pray the Lord would show you, as his wife, what to do to help and encourage your husband in his work.  Pray your husband’s decisions would be lead from God, and not his own understanding.  Pray for wisdom for your husband, that he may prosper and his job may be secure.  Pray that his job will be a service to the Lord, and his heart would be softened and molded into God’s perfect plan.
