Praying for Your Husband

Is your husband a key focal point of your prayers? If so, your husband is a blessed man! To make him your special “prayer project” for life, here are a few suggestions—and cautions—to keep in mind.

Pray without expecting instant results. God is always at work. and He doesn’t work according to your timetable. Applying this knowledge to your prayers for your husband will calm your heart.
Pray, even when you don’t feel like it. When you are discouraged or frustrated with what is or isn’t happening in your marriage, pray! God knows your heart, your dreams and desires… and your sorrows.

Pray, expecting to do battle. Hopefully your husband is praying for you, but even if he isn’t, you must embrace your role as a prayer warrior. It’s vital that you see yourself as a soldier doing battle when you pray for your beloved husband.

Pray, knowing the Holy Spirit is interceding as well. Sometimes we as wives don’t know how to pray for our husbands. When this happens you can know that the Holy Spirit knows and is making intercession on your man’s behalf (Romans 8:26).

Pray, leaving the results to God. God tells His people to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17). And so you do as He asks and pray! But the real comfort in praying for your husband is leaving your requests in God’s lap, so to speak. Yes, you pray. And yes, you watch and wait for results. And yes, you may pray and watch and wait for decades. But each day-and every time you experience even a hint of anxiety or frustration-you are to lay your concerns into God’s hands to do as He wills and when He wills. “Let your requests be made known to God.” And afterward? You experience “the peace of God” (Philippians 4:6-7).

Our True Citizenship

by Elizabeth George February 07, 2023

The temptation for worldly acceptance comes when you lose sight of your identity. As a believer in Christ you are a Kingdom citizen. You are a sojourner and a pilgrim, merely passing through this life on your way to eternity. Don’t get too settled in a world and a life that is passing away.

Keeping a Prayer Journal by Elizabeth and Jim George
Keeping a Prayer Journal

by Elizabeth George January 31, 2023

I know from personal experience that living a life of prayer is not easy. Our lives are filled with a multitude of activities that tend to crowd out time for prayer. How many times have you been guilty of telling someone that you would pray for them? Your heart genuinely yearned to be a part of bringing their need before the throne of God. And then what happened? I’m sure that, if you’re like me, more times than you would like to admit, you forgot about the promise to pray before you rounded the corner of the church building! Why? Because you didn’t write the request down.
