Praying for our Husbands

This week Courtney has challenged us to pray for our husbands. To read more about it click here

I like the suggestion she gave about praying for our husbands whenever we look at our wedding ring. This week I will try to do that in addition to asking my husband how I can better pray for him.

In Elizabeth George's book, "Small Changes for a Better Life", she writes about prayer in the chapter "Developing Your Prayer Life". She gives the following steps for developing your prayer life:

Step 1: Do it!
Step 2: Do it badly. If you are a beginner at prayer -or perhaps getting started again- when you first start praying, you may think you're doing it badly. You may stumble and agonize over your words and concerns. But no prayer is ever done badly in God's eyes if your heart is right.
Step 3: Do it regularly.
Step 4: Do it faithfully.
Step 5: Do it for life.

Won't you join me this week in spending more time in prayer, and praying for our husbands?

"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18


  1. thank you for the gentle reminder...

  2. Great reminder!! I really like the idea of doing it every time we look at our ring, too. And that's so true, the best thing to do is do it!! We can't pray for our men enough, thanks for sharing!!

  3. Yes Yes Yes I will.I love the idea of praying every time I look at my ring.

  4. Yes I will join you with praying for my husband. I think we sometimes forget what all is on their shoulders...or I do. My husband has some big decisions to make this week, which affect us all...I am sure those are never easy to make, but with God's help they are. Thanks for the reminder,

  5. Yes, I need to pray more for my husband and what a great idea to pray for him when you look at your wedding ring.

  6. I love Elizabeth George - she is so right! And your husband is so blessed to have a praying wife! Keep it up!

  7. Okay, I love this challenge! And thanks for doing the happy dance with me. Knowing that your day will be filled with joy step by step!

    Happy Day,

  8. I have an award for you!!!!!!
