Prayer Challenge Day 26; His Deliverance

Today’s prayer for our husband is praying for his deliverance.

Because we are created with a sin nature, we all need to be delivered from that.  Most times we need deliverance from something in our past that we have held on to.  Satan loves nothing more than to use our past to create shame and blame in our lives.  We are held in bondage by strongholds.

Are there any strongholds that your husband is struggling with?  Sometimes we may not think of them as strongholds, but if they keep us from having a close relationship with Christ, then they are strongholds.

My husband has been on a very painful spiritual journey for several years.  It has been very hard for me to watch him go through this time, but I know that it is necessary so that the Lord can break the strongholds my husband had.  The fruit that has come from this time of breaking the spirit is that now he truly leads our home in all ways. He has a deepening love for the Lord that he did not have before.  He has an unquenchable thirst for the wisdom and knowledge of God. Though we still struggle, my husband now feels a freedom that I don’t think he thought he could ever experience.  He now has an unexplainable peace and joy that our family truly benefits from.

What does your husband need deliverance from? 

The prayer in our book was excellent (pg179-180), I would encourage you to use it as a guide in praying for your husband that he will find deliverance.

Part of her prayer…

LORD, You have said to call upon You in the day of trouble and You will deliver us (Ps 50:15).  I call upon You know and ask that You would work deliverance in my husband’s life.  Deliver him from anything that binds him.  Set him free from   (name a specific thing)  .  Deliver him quickly and be a rock of refuge and a fortress of defense to save him (Ps 31:2)  Lift him away from the hands of the enemy(Ps 31:15).
