Day 12-Praying For My Husband

Now flee from youthful lusts and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart.” - 2 Timothy 2:22 (NASB)


We live in a sexually charged world. No matter where you turn, sexual images are everywhere. The Christian man is in a constant battle to keep his mind pure. He is under continual attack to lust. God honors purity, but it is very difficult for the Christian man to experience it.

The Bible gives us one main defense in dealing with lust - run. God doesn’t tell us to fight it, he tells us to run from it. Just like Joseph, when being seduced by Potiphar’s wife, we are to run away!

As you pray for your husband today, pray that he takes the strategy of running from sexual temptation. Pray for his protection and strength as he is tempted daily by the sexual images that abound around Him. Pray that he will always be on guard and will pursue a pure heart before God.

 

Father, today I pray that you will strengthen eddie and allow him to keep his heart pure. Give him the courage to flee from any sexual temptation he may encounter. Help him to seek after You with a pure heart.
In Jesus Name,
Amen




eddie, Today I am praying God helps you develop a pure heart. I am praying you follow the instructions of the Bible when it says to flee from sexual temptation. I know you are bombarded with sexual images every day. I am praying that amid the attack, you will pursue God with a pure heart. love, denise

Amen! In the past, I must confess, I didn't pray for my husband regarding this issue. Then, I began to read the Proverbs about the immoral woman, and God placed in my hear the importance to begin praying for my husband in this area. I'm so glad that he did.
