Encouraging My Husband

The last months are really starting to wear on my wonderful husband.  A person can only take so much stress.  I've been looking and praying for a way to help him.  Finally, last night, I realized that the best way that I could help him was by praying for him. 

Many, many moons ago (probably 12 years!), I picked up a copy of The Power of a Praying Wife by Stormie Omartian.  I can't begin to express how this book impacted me as a wife....and I think that it benefited my husband as well. 

Would any of you like to join me in spending 31 days in prayer for our husbands?  No matter your current circumstances, there isn't a husband on the planet that couldn't beneft from prayer :)  I urge you to grab a copy of the book, or pray on your own (there is a facebook page devoted to this) and begin blessing your husband through prayer.  It will be the best thing that you have ever done for your marriage, I guarantee it!

I will join you in that Carie! I have a book and have been thinking it would be good to get this out again. Must be a God ordained thing. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

That is a great book to help us pray for our husbands. I had a copy once, but lent it to a friend and I don't think she's done with it yet. But, that doesn't mean I can't still pray for my husband. I know he definitely needs it!

I will join you in this, Carie. My husband has been a real trooper the past few months when I have been struggling so. I felt the Lord nudging me to get this book out. I love how God works through our lives! Happy praying my friend!!!
