Family Friday: Prayers for your Wife

Prayers for your Wife
 We know that husbands and wives should pray for each other, and we often do.  However,         sometimes we do not know what to pray, or we do not even have a plan beyond knowing that we                              need to pray.  Here is a suggestion for some specific prayers for husbands to pray for their wives.

1.      Pray for Her Mind
Pray that God would mold her into a capable, intelligent, and virtuous woman and that He would keep her thoughts centered on whatever is true, lovely, right, pure, noble, and worthy of praise. (Proverbs 31:10Philippians 4:8)

2.      Pray for Her Eyes
Ask God to give her eyes of compassion, so she could see others as He sees them. (Matthew 9:361 Samuel 16:7b)
3.      Pray for Her Ears
Pray that she would listen for God’s still, small voice and would remain ever attentive to the promptings of the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 11:151 Thessalonians 5:19)

4.      Pray for Her Mouth
Ask that God would fill her mouth with skillful and godly wisdom, that the law of kindness would remain on her tongue, and that she would only and always speak the truth in love . (Proverbs 31:26Ephesians 4:15)

5.      Pray for Her Heart
Pray that God would fill your wife’s heart with love and respect for you and with tender patience toward your children. (Ephesians 5:331 Thessalonians 2:7)

6.      Pray for Her Arms
Ask God to gird your wife with strength, making her arms strong and firm. Pray that He would bless the work of her hands and that she would do her work cheerfully, as unto Him. (Proverbs 31:1731Colossians 3:23)

7.      Pray for Her Legs
Ask God to strengthen and sustain your wife, so that she can walk and not faint and not tire of doing good. (Isaiah 40:312 Thessalonians 3:13)

8.      Pray for Her Feet
Pray that her feet would be shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace so that she might faithfully pursue righteousness and love. Ask God to lead her in the path of wisdom and truth and to keep her feet from stumbling. (Ephesians 6:15Proverbs 21:21Proverbs 4:11-12)

Praying for each other will strengthen your marriage and make you more aware of each other’s needs.
