Let's Get Serious About
Praying For Our Wives
Ok guys; listen up because this is important.
As a Christian husband, you want the best for your wife.
You know your wife needs your prayer support in dealing
with the stresses of life, the temptations of the world,
and the attack of the Devil.
As a Christian husband, you would readily give your life to protect your wife. If someone were to break into your house late at night, you would do whatever it takes to keep your wife out of harm's way.
Yet every day, Satan implements a plan to destroy your wife. The Bible says he comes to kill, steal and destroy. Whether you like it or not, your wife is in the cross hairs of the kingdom of darkness.
In addition, your wife needs your spiritual covering and encouragement. God expects you to set the spiritual tempo in your relationship. She needs your encouragement to be all that God has for her.
We know we should be praying for our wives, but how?

Here is what some guys are saying about "Praying for Her"
Jay Harris, Ft. Worth:
"I pray with my wife every morning before we go our ways to work. I have noticed that over the years of continuing this wonderful practice that I have begun to pray basically the same prayer every day. "Praying For Her" has opened my eyes to many ways I can and should pray for my wife, my gift from God. Praying For Her" has broadened the scope of my praying while helping me to discover the depth of value my wife is to me."
Here's a sample of what Day 1 looks like:
“Love God With All Her Heart”
Today's Verse: And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. - Mark 12:30
One day, Jesus was asked which of the commandments was the greatest. He gave a very simple answer: “Love God.” Interestingly, He didn't say, “serve” God. God’s first call is to a love relationship. Jesus then adds, “with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength.” It wasn’t that He was trying to give us four different aspects of love, but to simply say that we are to love God with all that we are. A love that begins in our heart, works in our mind, and shows itself in our actions.
So many Christians are willing to love God at some level, but not with all that they are. Jesus was saying that if we are going to love God, we have to love Him with all of our being. Loving God is more than an emotion or even an action, like going to church or helping others. Loving God is placing Him at the center of all that we are. Today, as you pray for your wife, pray that she can grow in her love relationship with Christ, and that she will love Him with all that she is.
Father, today I pray that my wife will grow in her love for You. May she love You with all her heart, all her soul, all her mind, and all her might. I pray that she will make You the center of her life. Help her to submit her mind, emotions, desires and dreams to You. I pray she will pursue a deep love relationship with You.
In Jesus Name,
(If you would like, you can copy and paste the following message, or use it as an example to let your wife know what you are praying for her today.)
Today, I am praying that as you continue to you grow in your love for God, He will become the centerpiece of all you are. I pray that you will love Him with all your heart, and with everything you are. I am praying for you to truly be able to say, “I love God with all that I am.”
