Praying for Your Husband

This year has I've taken the journey (and challenge) of reading the Bible cover to cover, I'm learning how important prayer is.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
Philippians 4:6 

The Bible teaches us to always be in prayer. Yes, our God knows the worries, concerns, hopes, and dreams of our heart--our job(s) as Christian followers is to talk and share these through prayer.

Pray without ceasing. 
I Thessalonians 5:17 

One area that I particularly love learning more about is how to grow as a Christian wife and within in my marriage. Marriage was designed to endure all things,  I personally wouldn't want to endure anything without the power of prayer. Marriage is no exception.

The Bible teaches that husbands are the spiritual leaders of the house.
I feel that is a lot of responsibility, especially when the time comes for us to grow our family. 
Because the husband does play the lead spiritual role doesn't make our role as wife any less important.
As a wife I feel it is my duty and privilege to pray for my husband in his role as spiritual leader.

But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a wife is her husband, and the head of Christ is God.
I Corinthians 11:3

I pray that Drew always feels loved and supported.
I pray that he makes prayerful decisions.
I pray that Drew continues to listen and grow within both his personal faith and our faith together.
I pray that his heart is always at peace.
I pray that he safely gets to enjoy the hobbies he loves.
I pray he gets blessed with children eager to learn from him.
I pray that in times of stress and anxiety that he gets led in the right direction.
I pray that our home be more than four walls and a rough, but a place for us to share our lives and build lasting memories.
I pray that together our lives reflect our faith.


  1. I love this!! I read the bible cover to cover in 2012. It took me longer, I actually started in December 2011 and finished in February 2013 but a majority of it was in 2012 and I read from it almost every day.

    I think I need to be more mindful of my prayers and to remember to pray for my husband. Thanks for the reminder!

  2. Love this! Such an awesome read this morning!!
