Are You a Praying Wife?

 

praying_in_the_spirit[1] How often do you pray for your husband? 

I am ashamed to admit that I do not pray for my husband enough.  He should be at the top of my list everyday.  He is my husband, next to God he is the most important person in my life.

My friend Amy on Facebook has challenged all of us to pray for our husbands for 30 days in a row using Stormie Omartian’s book, The Power of a Praying Wife.  I have accepted her challenge & encourage you to do the same.  It starts today, June 1st.  But even if you do not read this post until after that date, you can start your own 30 days anytime.

The challenge is very simple.  You will need the book, The Power of a Praying Wife

This is what Amy writes to us about this challenge…

WHAT YOU'LL DO: Read a chapter a day FOR 30 DAYS, which includes a prayer. (Even if you've read this book before, you can just do the prayers and skip the reading... the point is for you to PRAY!)
FYI: Daily reminders to pray for your husband will be sent out through facebook messages to you. You don't have to discuss anything (and no "spouse bashing" will be allowed) but can share if you'd like on the wall. You can also leave links to your blog posts if you make any as well. Please spread the word to others!
THE POINT: To get wives praying for their husbands... that's it! Doesn't matter what the background, denomination, or current state your life is in... Let's get those hubbies covered in prayer and stand back and expect great things to happen to them, our marriages, and even ourselves as we petition God on their behalf!
(And might I add, that if things are really bad, that this is a great time to do this! When my marriage was falling apart and my husband and I were ready to divorce, I came across this book, and it not only changed my marriage... but it changed me as well!)

If you are going to participate, let me know.  I am hoping to post daily concerning this topic.  It has been a long time since I was able to blog & I’m a little out of practice, but if all goes well you should get updates from me daily if you subscribe.

 

Let the praying begin!
