As we begin this new year, I invite you to join me in a 31 Day Challenge to pray for our husband’s. Proverbs 31:12 says, “She does him good, and not harm…” One way that we can “do good” for our husband’s is to pray for them.
To get you started, the first 7 days are listed below in this post. You may also use this FREE Printable. Print it out and keep it in your Bible, tape it up by your kitchen sink, or place it somewhere will you will see it.
For the month of January, each Wednesday I will be sharing weekly posts with the seven prayers and scriptures for the week. I will also be posting the prayers and Scripture verses daily on Facebook. So if you haven’t “liked” An Everyday Blessing yet, now is your time!
Ladies, praying for my husband is something I know I need to be more intentional about. How about you? How often do you pray for your husband? How specific are you about praying for him?
I am so excited to begin this challenge. There is something special about praying specific prayers for people, especially using Scripture to pray.
Won’t you join me by being intentional about praying for your husband as well?
