The Power of a Praying Wife

Lately I have been thinking about how important it is to pray for my husband constantly. He has so much pressure on him with work in a slow economy, a painful knee, being the spiritual leader of our home, worrying about the future of our country and the effect of that on our lives, and so many other things. I think it is very important for me as his wife to remember to pray for him every day. Prayer seems like such a small thing to do, but when I am diligent about it, I am always amazed at the results. If my focus is on the Lord, and I am constantly talking to Him about everything, amazing things happen! I am happier, life seems easier, I feel closer to my husband, he seems happier, we treat each other better, he seems more tender and loving- and I don't even have to tell him I've been praying! The benefits of walking with the Lord are amazing. :-) I just thought I'd share my thoughts with you and encourage you all to be praying for your husbands or fathers too! Have a blessed day! ♥

O daughters of Jerusalem."
