How often during the day do your thoughts turn to your husband? How often during the day to you lift up a prayer for him? How often to you call/text him, not to complain but just to say you love him?
Our husbands need to know that we love them. They need to know that we are praying for them and they need to know that they are more than just a paycheck to us. How can they know if we don't tell them?
I have been doing The Husband Project and for today's project author Kathi Lipp encourages us to make reminders to turn our thoughts toward our husband and pray for them several times throughout the day. She suggests setting the alarm on your cell phone, post a picture somewhere where you are sure to see it and pray for him, leave yourself a note, whatever it takes to think about him. Then at some point call or text him just to let him know he was on your mind. If you normally do call him throughout the day, make sure it is not to complain about the unending pile of laundry, stopped up toilet or disobedient kids, but only to tell him you love him and prayed for him.
Spend time thinking about your guy today and pray for God to touch him in a new and fresh way. Be sure not to make your prayers selfish but simply that God would touch him.
Is praying for your husband something that comes easy to you or it is something you have to work at? Please share with us in a comment below.
