Over the years I've read many books and heard lots of sermons about praying for husbands.
Some were good, some were scary, some were inspiring, and some were absolutely not Biblical.
A few years back I laid all my concerns about this before the Lord and He showed me that many of my wifely prayers weren't really about my husband at all - they stemmed from what I wanted for, and in, my beloved's life.
Well, that caused a spiritual shake-up in Jenny-land, let me tell you!
Duly chastised, though ever so gently, I sought my Father for His direction on how to pray for Mr E.
Very simply, He led me to Psalm 15.
What a beautiful and holy prayer of David this is, and when I made it personal, what a powerful prayer it became over my husband's life.
You see, it's not about what we want in their lives is it?
It's about who God is refining them to become.
So praying Scripture over our beloved's character (and over our own too) is working with God, and not working for what we want for ourselves.
More of Him, less of me...I'm still learning.
