30 Days of Praying for Your Husband – Day 10

Don’t know about you, but I have a busy day planned for today – so let’s dig right in!

30 Days of Praying for Your Husband - Day 10 His Purpose

 

Day 9 deals with Purpose. In the day-to-day of life, purpose is the thing that gets us up in the morning.  In the bigger scheme of things, purpose is what keeps us goin’…  God certainly has a purpose for our lives, despite the fact that we so often get distracted or veer off the path.  I know that the darkest days my husband has ever had were when he felt disconnected at home and without a role at work.

Read Chapter 9 – “His Purpose” from PPW (if you have it)

 

Questions for thought/journaling:

  1. Do you have a sense of what your husband’s purpose in life is, or who God created him to be?  If you don’t know, ask God to show you.  Does your husband have an understanding of God’s call?  What is it?
  2. Do you feel your husband is fulfilling God’s call on his life?  How would you like to see him better move in that/those area/s?  How can you support him in prayer to help protect him from doubt and discouragement?
  3. Read Ephesians 1:17-19 and Psalm 20:4.  Pray those Scriptures over your husband, inserting/replacing his name in context.
  4. Have you sought God about the call on your own life?  If so, what is it?  If not, ask God to reveal it to you!
  5. The call on your life and the call on your husband’s life will never be in conflict! If they seem to be, ask God to clarify that to you.  It may have to do with timing.  How do you see God working this out in both of your lives?  If you don’t know, write out a prayer asking Him to reveal it to you.

 

Stormie reminds us: “a wife can’t put pressure on her husband to be something, but she can pray for him to become it. She can pray that be be molded according to God’s plan and not anyone else’s. Then, who he becomes will be determined by whether he hears God’s call on his life or not.” (p.93)

Have a fabulous Friday, and  don’t forget we’ll be publishing a post tomorrow, Saturday, during this series!  So keep a prayerful mindset over the weekend, ladies!

    Well, gosh. Time to be transparent.

    I’m dying – of pancreatic cancer, so they say…and purpose can be hard to find. I can no longer work outside the home, or, really, FROM home, because the pain, nausea, and other little things like fatigue and incontinence (yeah, I’ll admit it) make it impossible. I can’t even ride in a car any more.

    But I have a purpose, and I am exercising it through this post comment, through comments on other blogs, and through my own blog…

    Life is still meaningful. Life is still good. Life can still be rewarding, and fun.

    Right now, for me, that’s the purpose that has to be reinforced, and validated.
