Good Afternoon friends! I am so blessed that you stopped by today! My friend Stephanie Brown started a challenge to pray for our husband’s for 31 days and I have linked up with her to get the word out. Please take a moment to check out her blog “Remembering Our Vows to Pray and Stay”.

We’re so glad you’ve decided to accept the “30-Day Encouragement Challenge” to encourage your husband! Your decision means that you truly want to be a blessing in your home. This challenge will also result in spiritual growth in your own life. We’d like to encourage you to keep track of what God does in your marriage over this next month. We hope you’ll take time to share what God does in your home as you bless and encourage your spouse.

The power of prayer. I’m sure if we could change our spouses in any way we could we would. And to name a few: be more romantic, lose weight, positive attitude and the list goes on…But it doesn’t work like that. many and even I have tried to change our spouses into what we want them to be…the truth is it doesn’t last! God is the only one who has the power to change. He is the creator of all male and female.

This challenge helps us to take “it” (whatever the “it” may be) to God in prayer.

Join us everyday of August to pray for our husband’s. Click here to see how you can join us.

Day 1 Sunday August 1st, 2010
“The heart of her husband safely trusts her; so he will have no lack of gain. She does him good and not evil all the days of her life.” Prov. 31:11-12

To refresh your memory…here’s the 30-Day Encouragement Challenge…for the next 30 days:

* You can’t say anything negative about your husband …to your husband…or to anyone else, about your husband.

* Say something that you admire or appreciate about your husband…to your husband…and to someone else, about your husband!

To help you get started, have you ever thanked your husband for “choosing you” above all other women? He found you attractive as a person, and appreciated you. Though many circumstances in your marriage may have changed, let your husband know that you are glad God led you together, and that you want to be a blessing to him for the rest of your marriage.

Let him know that he can trust you to be in his corner. One of the best opportunities to express your gratitude is first thing in the morning.

  • How do you greet your husband each morning?
  • Is he confident in your love?
  • Give him a “wake up call” that he’ll never forget-a big “I love you” and an “I’m so glad I’m your wife!”

Today’s Prayer:
Pray that your husband will grow spiritually and consider his accountability before the Lord.
Pray that he will guard his heart by developing spiritual disciplines—Bible reading and study,
prayer, meditation, scripture memorization, etc. (2 Peter 3:18; Prov. 4:23)
