Marriage Monday - Power of a Praying Wife Week 7

The mind can be a strange, funny and powerful thing.  In the stillness of the night minds wander.  Satan's whispers as he lies to us replay over and over in minds.

Thoughts race through our husband's mind daily.  Thoughts of bitterness due to a relationship gone bad.  Thoughts of failure when money is tight and bills pile up.  Thoughts of anger when someone wrongs him.  This thoughts are poison and they can destroy him.

The two most powerful against the attack of lies upon your husband's mind are the Word of God and praise.  Pray for his mind?  Yes.  As his wife, we should daily pray for a sound mind. Pray that our husband would hear the truths found in the Word of God and not the lies of the enemy and the world.  And pray that he would take each thought captive.

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets 
itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive
every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
2 Corinthians 10:5

Pray for your husband's mind, for his thoughts, each day.  Don't let Satan win.  Fight.

This Week's Prayer:

Lord, I pray for Your protection on my husband's mind.  Shield him from the lies of the enemy.  Help him to clearly discern between Your voice and any other, and show him how to take every thought captive as You  have instructed us to do.  May he thirst for Your Word and hunger for Your truth so that he can recognize wrong thinking.  Give him strength to resist lying thoughts.  Remind him that he has the mind of Christ.  Where the enemy's lies have already invaded his thoughts  I push them back by inviting the power of the Holy Spirit to cleanse his mind.  Lord, You have given me authority "over all the power of the enemy" {Luke  10:19}.  By that authority given to me in Jesus Christ, I command all lying spirits away from my husband's mind.  I proclaim that God has given {husband's name} a sound mind.  He will not entertain confusion but live in clarity   He will not be tormented with impure, evil, negative, or sinful thoughts but be transformed by the renewing of his mind, that he may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God {Romans 12:2}.

Enable him to "be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might" {Ephesians 6:10}.  Help him to be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let his requests be made known to You; and may Your peace, which surpassed all understanding, guard his heart and mind through Jesus Christ {Philippians 4:6-7}.  And finally, whatever things are true, noble, just, pure, lovely, of good report, having virtue, or anything praiseworthy, let him think on these things {Philippians 4:8}.
