A Praying Wife

Let’s admit it. Our husbands can {sometimes} be the most annoying people in our lives. They tend to leave the toilet seat up, causing us ladies to slip into the bowl of cold water during a middle of the night bathroom trip. They usually don’t take the extra effort to toss their dirty socks into the laundry hamper. Instead, they leave them on the floor right where they took them off. 🤦🏻‍♀️ And, don’t get me started on the dishes in the sink. I know my husband isn’t the only one who forgets to rinse his coffee out of his cup, or the ketchup off his plate, when he places it in the sink.

It’s so easy to point out all of the little faults our husbands have, including not cleaning up his whiskers after he shaves. But, ladies, God has called our husbands to be the leaders of our households and to love us.

“Husbands, love your wives and do not be bitter toward them.”
Colossians 3:19

It’s so easy to throw this Biblical truth in the face of our husbands. To tell them they are called to “love us and be kind”. But, let’s think about our actions as wives for a minute. If roles were reversed and your husband was reminding you of all the little things you do wrong, do you think you would always be kind? Probably not.

We can’t expect our husbands to be perfect, when we, as wives, aren’t perfect.

Instead of constantly nagging our husbands, what if we commit to pray for them.

Let’s commit to praying that our husbands will ….

• submit to Christ as the true head of our households

• make wise decisions regarding our families’ finances

• find a place of peace and rest when they are at home

• know that we love them conditionally, not just by our words, but by our actions

• be of sound mind and remain safe when away from home

• love others like Christ

• set a Godly example for our children

• pray daily

It is my belief, that praying for our husbands, and watching God work in them, is one of the biggest blessings we can experience on this side of heaven.

So, I leave you with a question.

Have you prayed for your husband as much as you’ve talked about him?

My handsome husband and I
