This is my husband, Tj and I. He is the love of my life. There are so many things I could tell you about him. Good and bad. But today I choose to focus on how I can be a better help mate for him. Sometimes we can’t fix things that we think need lots of attention. So, instead of nagging and fussing and holding resentful feelings toward him, i’m going to start lifting him up in Prayer more specifically and much more often.
A good friend of mine gave me a little cheat sheet on what it looks like to Pray for your husband from the top of his head, to the bottom of his feet. As simple a concept as that sounds, it can be challenging on some days. So here goes part 1 of Praying For Tj. I hope it inspires some of you to pray for your mate more intentionally. Feel free to take some notes, and make this about your husband/wife. Most of this is paraphrased and I just added Tj’s name where is generically had the word Husband. Make it as personal as you feel comfortable doing.
May the God of peace Himself make my husband entirely pure and devoted to God; and may His spirit, soul, and body be kept strong and blameless until that day when our Lord Jesus Christ comes back again. (1 Thes. 5:23)
Lord, I pray these scripture based prayers will challenge me and help me in my most important duty as a wife, praying for Tj. Because I understand that I am one flesh with him, no one else stands in as strong a position in my prayers for him as I do. Help me to make Tj my prayer priority. Show me how to pray diligently every day for him. I plead for your mercy on him. I thank you for all you are doing for him.
Thank you Father for giving me Tj. You are his head. Help me to allow him to be my head., as you are head of the church. Thank you for being head over all Your perfect plans for our home. We love you so much!!
The closer we are to Jesus, the closer we will be to each other.
