>A Prayer for my Husband and a Giveaway

>

He is my man, I love him and I praise God for giving me to him, and for giving him to me. His embrace is all I want, and being with him is a gift from the Lord.

Today I am specially grateful for my man, and for the privilege God has given me to intercede for him every day. He goes to the world every day,  and faces thorns and whistles and fights for us, while I wait in the quiet of our home, longing for his coming at night.

This is my prayer for my husband today. (adapted from Prayers of an Excellent Wife  -p.68- 69)

O thou Giving God,
Be gracious to my husband today, for to you do I cry all the day. Gladden the soul of your servant, for to you, O Lord, do I lift up his soul.

Teach him Your way that he might walk in Your truth; unite his heart to fear Your Name. Turn to him and be gracious to him; give him strength, and save him.

O beloved, sing with me of the steadfast love of the LORD forever; with your mouth make know his faithfulness to all generations!

Glorious God,

Let your favor be upon my husband. Establish the work of his hands.

Be his dwelling place, Most High, and be his refuge, so that no evil shall be allowed to befall him. Command Your angels concerning him to guard him in all his ways. Because You hold fast to him in love, please deliver him; protect him because he knows Your Name.

When he calls to You answer him; be with him in trouble; rescue him and honor him. With long life satisfy him, and show him Your salvation. Satisfy him with your beauty.

In the name of my Lord and Mediator Jesus, whose name is above all other names,

Amen

  4. >Becky,Thank you for sharing this prayer and giving an opportunity for the giveaway. I long for new ways to pray for my husband. I am richly blessed in many ways, but one such way is that I get to work with my husband (and children) in a family business (it keeps us very busy).

  5. >I love this, Becky. The heart of a woman whose husband has full confidence in her. I have similar thoughts, as I hear him leave in the morning, sometimes so early, and I marvel at the strength God has given him…all that "get up and go-ism." I know he does it for love.And like you, my heart longs for him all day long, waiting with anticipation for his return at night. Marriage, that perfect picture of Christ and the Church. Thank you, faithful friend!-E
