Marriage Monday - Power of a Praying Wife Week 12

How many times have we heard stories about men who were on the battlefield and at the very moment when they were in the greatest danger, they experienced miraculous deliverance, only to learn later that someone back home was praying at that same moment?  

Our husbands are on the battlefield every day.  Sister, there is danger coming at your husband every moment.  Satan sets these traps all around your husband.  Traps that hold illness, evil, accidents, violence and destruction.  Traps that only God knows about.  Traps set to destroy your husband and destroy your life.

Recently, less than two weeks ago, a sweet friend made her way to the hospital where her husband was being life flighted after falling twenty-two feet onto concrete.  A trap of Satan to destroy this man, this young couple.  But this wife is a praying wife. This man, unconscious for many hours, suffered a broken back, broken face and brain injury.  This man, through his pain, witnessed to the nurses that came into his room. This man was home in only three days.  Power of a praying wife!

Show Your marvelous loving kindness by Your right
hand, O You who save those who trust in You from 
those who rise up against them.  Keep me as the apple 
if Your eye; hide me under the shadow of Your wings.
Psalm 17:7-8

My husband works construction and is high on buildings each day.  I pray for his safety daily.  I don't know how I would make it through his career without prayer.

No matter what is going on, your husband can be at work, driving down the street or mowing the law, and there are dangers all around him.  We just pray for his protection.

This Week's Prayer:

Lord, I pray that You would protect {husband's name} from any accidents, diseases, dangers, or evil influences.  Keep him safe, especially in cars and planes.  Hide him from violence and the plans of evil people.  Wherever he walks, secure his steps. Keep him in Your path so that his feet don't slip {Psalm 17:5}.  If his foot does slip  hold him up by Your mercy {Psalm 94:18}.  Give him the wisdom and discretion that will help him walk safely and not fall into danger {Proverbs 3:21-23}.  Be his fortress, strength, shield, and stronghold {Psalm 18:2-3}.  Make him to dwell in the shadow of Your wings {Psalm 91:1-2}.  Be his rock, salvation, and defense, so that he will not be moved or shaken {Psalm 62:6}.  I pray that even though bad things may be happening around him, they will not come near him {Psalm 91:7}.  Save him from any plans of the enemy that seek to destroy his life {Psalm 103:4}.  Preserve his going out and his coming in from this time forth and even forevermore {Psalm 121:8}.
