Lord I am praying for my husband, that he puts you first. You Restore his heart to the fire when he first loved you. Let my husband love me like Christ loved the church so much he laid down his life and died for it. He gave himself for it. Even Adam gave himself for his wife, and had a deep slumber, almost death like sleep. I mean how don’t you don’t feel a whole rib being taken out of you? And it’s Just so your wife can have life! That alone is amazing! I pray for that, that he learns to die to self, so that I may have life through Christ. In Christ the way that God has ordered. I pray that he can see the spiritual realm, then he can stop being angry at physical truth and he can get to the root of the issues at hand, because he can then answer to God. I see the spiritual battles, I know how Lucifer works and I just wish that he could see it. WE need to obey the Lord and be able to rebuke the devil, and how can we rebuke what we don’t know? I pray he can get back into discipleship. I don’t even want to talk to him about it, I don’t want to feel like I am forcing anything on him, I just want him to do it on his own accord.
Mark 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
Luke 24 :32 And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?
Eph 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
Gen 2:21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
Eph 6: 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Acts 11:26 And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.
I pray that I can respect my husband. That can be one of the hardest things to do. No matter what is going hard we need to show him respect. It’s like being in the military, you could work for a horrible, Staff NCO or Officer, but you still respected the rank. Why do we have a hard time doing that with our husbands at times? I need to do that at all times. Lord help me. As long as it is as I would unto you. I need to constantly be putting you first in my time, talent, and treasure. when I rise, I listen to Tony Evans. No that is not my local pastor, I live much farther away. But I have the app on my phone, or you can always go to Tonyevans.org He is the truth! And good to listen to everyday as a start to take the word in! I just need to focus how Church is suppose to be Christ, and how I am to be IN Christ, and that is how I am to be to my husband. Now he is suppose to understand that as well… lol but that is when he needs to lean not unto his own understanding lol. I just need help from God to be obedient in that way. LORD DO I NEED IT!!!!
Eph 5:33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband… 21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
I am praying for my daughters to be obedient in the Lord to us. We are a blended family. Just my older daughter, and then we have one together. I want my oldest to be able to stand up to her father when her step-mother lies on her. Children are to obey your parents in the Lord, Wives are to respect, and submit to their husbands as UNTO the LORD, and husbands are to love their wives as CHRIST loved the church, everything is just as we would Christ. There are parameters set in pace for us to do so, and I just pray that we do follow these with love, and cheerfulness, and boldness.
Eph 6: 1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.2 Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
There are other things I am in prayer for. These are the main things. If my home is in order, then the outward things in life can then follow-through. I also need to keep casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; (2 Corinthians 10:5) Now that I am praying without ceasing, I swear, my thoughts are my worst enemy!
So today I ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen!
