We all can remember the excitement that built up in the time before that special day. That person we love so much will become our life-long mate, our closest companion, the one we will share all this life brings our way.
But in a world that is filled with dark times and hardships, did you know that you will be vital to his life?
In this world we will face hard times...but as Christians we have a special weapon, it is called "prayer."
We must be certain that we, as women and as a wife, understand how important it is to pray for our husband. Not just for his physical well-being, but most importantly for his spiritual well-being. There is nothing in this world more important than prayer.
From the moment you said, "I do," there is an enemy who desires to destroy your bond of marriage.
Satan seeks to destroy your husband by what he see's, in what he hears, in those who cross his daily path, in his integrity and in his role as husband and father. But you as his trusted mate can use the special power of prayer to protect him from the enemy. Each day, trust God through prayer as you continually surrender your husband and marriage to the Lord’s wise and loving care.
You can bless your husband by praying for him! The Apostle Paul instructed all Christians to pray for one another (Ephesians 6:18). This includes the responsibility of a wife to pray for her husband. It is such a blessing and a privilege to pray for his protection and spiritual growth and also a blessing for him to know that his wife is praying for him daily. (Proverbs 31:11-12).
