I know a lot of women pray for their husbands. I pray for mine too, but I don't have one yet. Well... I have one he just hasn't been revealed to me in that capacity yet.

I was invited by a friend to join to 'pray for our husbands'. And maybe it was the day, but I was totally ticked off by this gesture, although I am sure that no ill will was meant. God really began to work in my heart about this. Instead of praying in general about things, I decided that it was time to be a lot more intentional about my prayer for my husband.

Today I found myself praying that God would speak to him tonight, that something that he needs healing from will be healed.

How we're broken, and how God heals us, each wound at a time. Its amazing how God not only hands us a band aid, but by His wounds we are healed!

God, I am so thankful for Your great healing, you heal our bodies, you heal out spirits. You know the things that are deep down, and you know when to bring them out, and when to tell us to let it go, and You wait, until we're ready. Lord, I ask for deep healing today, from things deeply enbedded in our lives. Lord, I ask that those things that need to be brought to the surface, be brought and you equip him to deal with them, to seek you. God, I love how you love us, that through all our mess, you are there. Thank You Lord. I love you, in Jesus' Healing name, I pray. AMEN!

Isa 53:5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
and by his wounds we are healed.

others focused

Phil 2:4 Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.

I started praying scriptures for my hubby, I never knew to do this but I went to the Desperation Conference and learned about that, how sweet!

So today's was Phil 2:4, this is a good one if you're the wife, ha!

But then I started thinking about how if we both look to other's interest, you know what's most important... to keep your eyes on Jesus. I want a husband that might look passed me because he's looking at Jesus.

God, I come before you, to always keep my eyes on you, that my husband is completely focused on living for Jesus. That in that, he is always focused on serving others, that his life and his love points toward Jesus. Lord, I am so thankful for the way you are preparing his heart. I am so thankful the way you have already moved. God let him be others focused, and Lord, I ask the same for me, Lord, I never want it to be about me, Lord, let it always be about You. I love You, and I ask this in Your Son's name, AMEN!

If the son has set you free you are free indeed! John 8:36

God, I come before you. Let him be free in You, Lord let the chains that hold him, that keep him from you be broken. Lord I ask that you relieve him from the things that have held him in bondage. Lord, I ask that as he walks through his next journey, you are with him, that he seeks you in every struggle and every decision. Lord, I’m so thankful for the man you’re making him to be. Lord, I love you, and I ask this in Your Son’s healing name, AMEN!

This world has nothing for him...

Romans 12:2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

God I pray that he follows you, that all the things in the world mean nothing to him but that only Your will matters to him. Only following you, from big things to little things. That all the temptations of the world mean nothing to him, that Your love is all that matters. That following Your will is most important to him. God I ask favor on his life, that in all things he sees that they come from You. From every sunrise to each little thing he is thankful for Your grace, one more day to live Your way. God I thank You for everything that has happened in his life and how Your grace and love has rescued him. You’ve restored him, and I thank You so much for that! God I love you, I am amazed at how much you love me. In Jesus name, I pray, AMEN!

Oui, I'm tired and lonely

I'm tired of being single. I was never one of those people who said "I never want to be married". truth is I long to be married, to the right person. To the person God intends, but it's hard. When you're lonely, when you're tired, when you long to be held, when you long to laugh, and dance while you're making dinner (yes, this is on my list and i know it won't be an everyday occurance, but I want it! Go read Eph 3:20).

Someone asked me why I wanted to be married. Because it's a desire God gave me and I won't settle. I won't settle for someone who doesn't have integrity. They must be a man of character and i don't mean the mickey mouse kind of character.

I'm hurting and to be honest, I'm kind of mad at God about the whole thing. Why do some people find love and marriage at 20 and I'm thirty six with no prospects. Ugh!

Do I have a blessed life, yes I do! But I sure would like someone to share it with.

Someone to love...

Gen 2:18 The LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him."

my list

I have a list, on the back of a daisy postcard, of all the things I want my husband to be. The desires of my heart so to speak. Not one says he has to be good looking. Isn't that funny. I had lost it. I had no idea where it had ended up but I knew I didnt' throw it away. You'd think that I would have put it in my bible. I actually had just given up on trying to find it.

I'm getting ready for my garage last night. June 12! If you need stuff, come by, stuff is going to be CHEAP! Greeting cards, scrapbook stuff, random stuff, even a chair or two. I need to purge. I've got too much 'stuff'.

Anyway, as I'm going through my cards, I found it! I was kind of excited! Silly huh?

So today, I'm praying for him. Strength. Today I am praying for him to be strong.

Strong in the Lord.
Strong in God's Word.
Strong in Spirit.
Strong in surrender.

Dear God, I love you. I know that I am first your bride. God, I know that you will fulfill the desires of my heart. Lord, I am asking that you give my husband strength. I am asking you to send him your word. That he is strong in You, Lord, that he knows that in order to be strong, he needs to be strong in who you are in him. Lord, I ask that you pull him towards your word, that he not only reads it, he believes the great life you have for him. That his love be YOUR love. Lord, I ask that he find no strength in this world, but he finds his strength in your holy spirit. Lord, be with him today. Lord, let him feel your presence. Lord, I love you, and I ask all these things in your son's precious, MIGHTY name. Amen

Isaiah 40:28-31
28 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.

29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.

30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;

31 but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
