30 Days of Praying for Your Husband – Day 25-26

Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail.

They are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness.

I say to myself “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait on Him.  Lamentations 3:22-24

30 Days of Praying for Your Husband - Day 25 Repentance

Day 25 deals with His Repentance.

Read Chapter 25 – “His Repentance” from PPW

Questions for thought/journaling:

  1. Read Proverbs 28:13.  Does your husband have difficulty confessing his faults?  What will happen if he doesn’t confess his sins?  What will happen when he does confess his sins?
  2. Do you feel your husband moves fully in the steps of confession, repentance, and asking forgiveness?  With which step does he have the most difficulty?  The least difficulty”  How could you pray about that?  Answer these same questions about yourself…
  3. Read Romans 2:4.  What leads us to repentance?  What will lead your husband to repentance?  What will lead you to repentance?  How could you pray about that?
  4. Does pride ever keep your husband from admitting he is wrong?  Do you feel this may have kept him from some of the blessings God has for him?  Write a prayer breaking any stronghold of pride in your husband.  Then do the same for yourself.
  5. Are there instances where you believe your husband’s true repentance would bring needed healing to you or to someone else you know?  How could you pray about that?  Read 1 John 3:21,211.  How ill admitting your sins ultimately affect you or your husband?

 

 

Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicket way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Psalm 139:23,24

 

Thank God His mercies are new each morning…


30 Days of Praying for Your Husband - Day 26 Deliverance

 

Day 26 deals with His Deliverance.  Winding down the last few days of our 30 Days of Praying for Your Husband! I hope this short study has birthed a habit and desire to look for and pray about the areas in your husband’s life that need your diligent prayer.  We only have a few days left together here…but you have a whole lifetime of prayer ahead of you 🙂 

Read Chapter 26 – “His Deliverance” from PPW

Questions for thought/journaling:

  1. Is there anything in your husband’s life from which you know he needs to be set free?  Read Psalm 50:15.  What do you have to do to see God’s deliverance happen in your life?  Do you and your husband believe that Jesus is your Deliverer?
  2. Does your husband ever feel hopeless, as if there is no way out of a situation?  In what kinds of situations does he feel that way?  The ultimate result of feeling that way is suicide.  Has your husband ever had suicidal thoughts?  Whether or not he has, write a prayer asking God to protect him from these in the future…
  3. Read Psalm 91:14.  Often simply by setting our sights on the Lord, having a heart for him, and living His way, deliverance will happen.  How could you pray this Scripture over your husband, trusting that result for him?
  4. Everything from which we need deliverance comes from the enemy.  State here what you have been given over the power of the enemy, from Luke 10:19.  How do you intend to use that in order to see your husband set free from things that control him?  How can you use it for your own deliverance?
  5. Read Galatians 5:1.  Because you are one with your husband, you can stand strong with him to resist the power of the enemy whenever he seeks to put your husband in bondage.  How can you address the enemy using this Scripture?

 

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.  I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, so shall I be saved from my enemies.  Psalm 18:2-3

 

In freedom, have a blessed day <3!

    Interesting thing about forgiveness…yesterday I commented on a blog post that upset me, before I had given myself time to cool off…and had to ask forgiveness for my tone (though not my underlying disagreement with what I said) in that pubic forum. It was hard, but liberating. If you’re interested, you can read the exchange in the link below…it’s a really good post, too. Very thought-provoking.

    And ah, deliverance! Most men have to be delivered from the demon of pornogrqaphy – some women, too, as “50 Shades Of Grey” was directed toward a female audience. It’s a tough sell, because it seems to trespass on personal freedom – “If I’m not hurting anyone else, this is my RIGHT!”

    The thing is, deliverance seems to be needed for the person himself, and for the Christian (and secular) community. Things like gambling, alcoholism, pornography, an even an obsession with bass fishin’ all have a ripple effect, and God had enjoined us to consider our neighbor’s worth as being equal to our own. It’s not ‘just ME, dagnabit!’, it’s everyone. God’s kids.

    The need for deliverance is maybe the flip side of individual responsibility?

    A the risk of blowing my own horn. I wrote a post about “50 Shades” when it came out, going into some detail about the downstream effect of pornography, and here’s the link –

      Andrew,
      Thank you for including those links! Lisa’s post, and the book about which she was writing, were very interesting! I’m gonna have to go get it…soon as I finish what I have on my plate right now. Anger has been a real problem for me in the past, so I think it will be very challenging. I was impressed by both your initial reaction AND your apology. The former, because of how authentic it was, the latter, because of how tough apologies can be on a public forum such as a blog!

      I am in TOTAL agreement with your “50 Shades” post! I truly do not understand “Christian” women who read that stuff, or “Christian” husbands who do the same or encourage their wives to, as well. Makes me think Jesus will be back any day now. I mean, how much lower can we sink already?!?!?

      Lord deliver us all!
