30 Days of Praying for Your Husband – Day 9

Isn’t it great that we get to start the day out in prayer – or that we can stop anytime during the day?  What a privilege to able to approach the throne and sit at the feet of JESUS!! I hope you’re beginning to see some fruit in your own life and your’s husband’s at this point, but if not… just a reminder from a previous post that God honors our faithful seeking – so stay strong!

30 Days of Praying for Your Husband - Day 9 His Fears

Day 8 deals with Fear. Sometimes it’s hard for me to imagine my big strong husband being afraid of anything!  But only a fool would believe that anyone is exempt from fear at one point or another – chalk it up to the human condition.

 

Read Chapter 8 – “His Fears” from PPW

 

Questions for thought/journaling:

1) List any of the fears your husband has.  Ask him, too, if he has any that he would like you to pray about.  How have you been affected by his fears?

 

2) When you have the fear of the Lord, what does God promise to do? (page 89 – it’s quite a list! And worth writing out…)

 

3) Read Psalm 27:1 – When God is your strength, of whom should you be afraid?  Read 1 John 4:18 – What takes away fear?  Read Psalm 34:4 – how could you pray for your husband so that he would be set free from fear?

 

 

Interesting bit of trivia I heard once:  did you know that the phrases “fear not” or “do not fear” appear 365 times in Scripture?  (No, I didn’t check that out – I took the pastor at his word!)  Whether or not that’s an exact count, I’ve personally read it enough times to know that He’s serious about trusting in Him to rid fear from my life and my  husband’s life – daily!

 

Be courageous, live fearlessly and “see you” tomorrow :-)!

 

 I sought the Lord and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.  Psalm 34:4

    Wow, Patti, what a wonderful exchange. It makes me feel my little fears are insignificant, but I know the Lord holds my hand as tightly as He does Andrew’s.

    Fear…I deal with it every day, as I’m terminally ill, and the prognosis…of more and harsher pain…is, frankly, terrifying. And I’m a combat veteran.

    My wife’s in a bit of denial, and when I try to broach the subject, she generally turns me away with “if you trusted God more, you wouldn’t be afraid”.

    It looks cruel as I’ve written it, but that’s not correct. It’s a reflection of her own fears.

    I find that the only way to effectively deal with fear is through grace…passing the grace God lends us on to others (for it’s not to be hoarded), and “loving myself as my neighbor”…not being down on myself because I’m afraid.

    I write a Christian marriage blog, and talked about fear in April. If it’s OK, I’ll give the link to the post here.

      Andrew, I’m so glad you shared the link to your blog…how powerful and real! I can’t even BEGIN to imagine what you must be going through, but you have so much to share that will surely bless our readers.

      I know your comment spoke to me. And the post…

      Praying that God will continue to pour out His mercy to you and your wife, as you walk along this journey He has you on…

        Pat, thank you…I know this trip isn’t the one we wanted, but by God’s grace we’re going to make the best of it. There IS love and fun and truth to be found in the most unlikely, and dreadful places, and I intend to document that.

        It’s what we do, in this very moment, that matters most of all.

          Love your attitude, and your site is so encouraging. I hope this doesn’t sound tacky, but I hope you will consider swinging by our site on Wednesdays and sharing some of your posts with our readers on Coffee & Conversation…

          Truly inspiring…and so glad you found us here!

            It’s not tacky at all, Pat. I welcome the opportunity. Hands linked across the abyss, as the hands of the Saviour, we mark the road to Heaven.
