Marriage Monday - Power of a Praying Wife Week 26

Everyone needs deliverance. We live in a fallen world that is full of sin. This world pulls and tugs on us seeking to bind us. God knows this. That is why we have The Deliverer, Jesus.

We don't have to be imprisoned by sin. We don't have to let past struggles define us. We don't have to let guilt hang over our heads. No! Jesus is our Deliverer.

At some point every one of us needs to be delivered. Sometimes it is hard to admit that. Sometimes our husband finds it hard to see that he is in need of deliverance. Men are strong. God created them this way. They like to handle things and when they can't, they feel like failures. But you, sister, can pray for his deliverance. You, without nagging him, can go to straight to God and pray that God will speak to your husband and deliver him.

It doesn't matter if he needs deliverance from drugs, alcohol, a cheating heart, or a rotten attitude, God can deliver him. Nothing is too big or small for our God.

This Week's Prayer:

Lord, You have said to call upon You in the day of trouble and You will deliver us {Psalm 50:15}. I call upon You now and ask that You would work deliverance in my husband's life. Deliver him from anything that binds him. Set him free from {name a specific thing}. Deliver him quickly and be a rock of refuge and a fortress of defense to save him {Psalm 31:15}.
Bring him to a place of understanding where he can recognize the work of evil and cry out to You for help. If the deliverance he prays for isn't immediate, keep him from discouragement and help him to be confident that You have begun a good work in him and will complete it {Philippians 1:6}. Give him the certainty that even in his most hopeless state, when he finds it impossible to change anything, You, Lord, can change everything.

Help him understand that "we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places" {Ephesians 6:12}. I pray that he will be strong in the Lord and put on the whole armor of God, so that he can stand against the wiles of the devil in the evil day. Help him to gird his waist with truth and put on the breastplate of righteousness, having shod his feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace. Enable him to take up the shield of faith, with wihich to quench all the fiery darts of the wicket one. I pray that he will take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful and standing strong to the end {Ephesians 6:13-18}.
