Pray for your husband

Do you sometimes think what it would be like to have a fresh start in your relationship with your husband? Just spending time together, chatting away the hours like you did at first? Or perhaps you desire to have a regular time of prayer as a couple?

 

As time goes on, it can become more difficult to keep regular times of fellowship and prayer as responsibilities and activities in the family increase. However, it is possible to make at least some time every week that you can spend together, especially to pray through things that are a concern to both of you. This does not mean that you cannot start praying right now. You can already ask the Lord to make it possible for you in the near future to increase the time you spend together as a couple in fellowship, but also in prayer.

 

Be sensitive to spot the right moment to ask your husband whether he would also like to spend time together as a couple on a more regular basis. You can then schedule a time that suits your diaries and family activities. If it is not possible to have your special time together during a particular week because of unforeseen events, you can be at peace knowing that you have time scheduled for the following week.

 

What to pray for

Following are guidelines of things you can pray for your husband on a regular basis. You can add other points as the Holy Spirit leads you. You may consider keeping a printed copy of it in your Bible so you will be reminded to cover these points on a daily basis.
