In the book, Power of a Praying Wife this week, Stormie said, (unfortunately), in order to effectively pray for our husbands we need to start with that girl in the mirror, with her attitude and agenda.
Instead of always praying “Change him, Lord”, we need to first pray “Lord, change ME”. Dying to self can be painful but as Matthew 10:39 says “He who loses his life for My sake will find it”.
The other subtitle that struck me was “Shut up and Pray”. In other words, when we have an issue with our husband, we need to start with prayer and wait for the Lord to lead us to speak or to stay silent and continue to pray.
This chapter was so full that I will bring you more tomorrow. Be in prayer for the Lord to lead my words and for the hearts of the readers to be open to God’s truth.
