DAY 1 CHALLENGE: PRAY
To begin this 14 day challenge, I want to challenge you to PRAY FOR YOUR HUSBAND. Pray for
him in a new and passionate way – today and every day. Hopefully, regardless of
how hard or awkward it may feel at first, you will begin a new habit which you
can continue to do every day for years to come. If you have already been praying
about your marriage daily, be sure you are praying FOR your husband, instead of
If your marriage is going great right now, then pray for your husband. If
your marriage is on the rocks, then pray for your husband. If your marriage is
all but over, then pray for your husband. If you are getting married soon, then
pray for your husband-to-be. Even if the problems you are experiencing in your
marriage, if any, are not your fault at all, praying is still the first step
towards positive growth. And while you are praying, BELIEVE that God hears your
prayers, and that He is always at work in the lives of those who love Him, even
our eyes are temporarily blinded to what He is up to.
I feel confident that you will begin to see God blessing you, as you spend
time in His presence every day, and eventually, you will see Him blessing your
marriage as well.
Stormie ends the first chapter of her book by sharing a profound statement,
that says “It’s your responsibility to pray. It’s God’s job to answer. Leave
it (your marriage) in His hands.”
When we surrender our marriage to God, only then can He truly take control. Dear Heavenly Father, I lift my precious husband Eddie up before Your throne. Surround him with Your love daily, guide his every foot step. Protect him wherever he may go, grant him wisdom for making all of his decisions. Please keep him healthy, and happy, today, and always. May he be a man seeking after Your heart. Thank You. Amen.
