31 Days Of Praying For My Husband-Day 1

Day 1


"He Will Love God With All His Heart"


Today's Verse: "And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength." - Mark 12:30

One day, Jesus was asked which of the commandments was the greatest. He gave a very simple answer: “Love God.” Interestingly, He didn't say, “serve” God. God’s first call is to a love relationship. Jesus then adds, “with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength.” It wasn’t that He was trying to give us four different aspects of love, but to simply say that we are to love God with all that we are. A love that begins in our heart, works in our mind, and shows itself in our actions.


So many Christians are willing to love God at some level, but not with all that they are. Jesus was saying that if we are going to love God, we have to love Him with all of our being. Loving God is more than an emotion or even an action, like going to church or helping others. Loving God is placing Him at the center of all that we are.

Today, as you pray for your husband, pray that he grows in his love relationship with Christ, so that he loves Him with all that he is.

The world is desperate to see men who are totally and completely sold out to Christ. Our nation, churches, and families need men who are completely in love with Christ.
 

Father, today I pray that eddie will grow in his love for You. May he love You with all his heart, all his soul, all his mind, and all his might. I pray that he will make You the center of his life. Help him to submit his mind, emotions, desires, and dreams to You. I pray he will pursue a deep love relationship with You.

In Jesus Name,


Amen.
 





eddie,
 today, I am praying that as you continue to grow in your love for God, He will become the centerpiece of all you are. I pray that you will love Him with all your heart, and with everything you are. I am praying for you to truly be able to say, “I love God with all that I am.” As I pray for you these next 31 day, I am praying that God does an incredible work in both of our lives.
