How To Pray For Your Husband!


Colossians 1:9-10

9)For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

10)That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;
           How do you pray for your husband?  Do you pray for your husband?  This is something that God has brought to my attention a lot lately. A preacher at church recently said you will find time to do what is important to you.  My husband is important to me and I know I should pray more for him so I started thinking how I should pray and what I should pray for.  The following is what I have came up with for my husband and me.  I am sharing in the thought that maybe it will help someone or at least challenge them to pray for their husband.
          I bought a journal and on Page 1, I wrote my husbands name.  I first wrote some prayer requests down that are ongoing prayer requests, such as....
1) His relationship with God
2) His relationship with me
3) His relationship with our children and grandchildren
4) His relationship with his coworkers
5) His physical safety each day
6) His spiritual safety each day    
7) His responsibilities at home, work and church
          Then below that I write down requests as he gives them to me or as I observe things or God lays something on my heart.  I write down the request and the date and then I pray until the request is answered.  I leave a space to record the date it was answered so I can look back and see what God has done for us.
         I do better if I have something to look at and remind me what I need to pray for and so the journal idea works for me.  This may or may not work for you. I just challenge you to pray for your husband daily. 
         I am working on other pages for other family members and friends but we will leave that for another blog post.

God bless,

What If?

Saw this on a friends blog and had to share-Before you gripe about another petty something about your spouse or child-think how how you would feel if you woke up without them tomorrow. Man this hit me in the face and really made me really think! :(
     Then, I found this quote above about what if you woke up today with only what you thanked God for yesterday.  Who or what would you still have?  Would you have your spouse, your kids, your friends, your home, car, anything?  Again, this really made me think and I ashamed to say I am not sure I like my answers to the above questions.
     I cannot change the past as none of us can but I am going to really work on changing my answers and my life.  I know I need to really work on this but I am sharing it in the hope it might help others as well.

Faith Over Fear! I Choose Faith!

I have been feeling overwhelmed and stressed for quite some time.  I have tried so many ways to make it better and even tried just giving up.  I have been doing lots of praying, talking to friends and even more talking to God.  I am now choosing faith over fear.  Faith over the fear I am not good enough; faith over the fear that God doesn't love me; faith over the fear of what other people think; faith over choosing the world and the lie of busyness to not make time for me and God.

     There have been hurricanes, tornadoes and floods over much of the country.  They are devastating and people think they can never overcome this.The storms of life are much the same.They are hard and devastating and we will like things are beyond our understanding and out of our life is out of control.This is where faith comes in.  We have to have faith in what we cannot see, what we can not understand and in God.  We have to choose faith over fear.

     Faith comes in trusting God and that He wan…
