Marriage Monday - Power of a Praying Wife Final Week

Today is our last day in the Power of a Praying Wife series. I pray this series has blessed you and your marriage and taught you about praying for your husband. If you missed any of the articles or if you would like to reread any of the prayers, just click the banner below.

None of us can live without a vision for our future, If we don't have one, we flounder aimlessly.

Some people get so busy living day to day life, that they forget about the future. Forget to pray for their future. Forget to plan for it. And then there are some people who worry about the future so much that they forget to live.

We have to come to a healthy balance. We need to plan and prepare for our future, but we still need to live today. Coming to this balance can be difficult. This is where prayer comes in. Pray for your future. Pray for your husband as he plans and prepares for his {and your} future. Pray that your husband seeks God and trusts that God will take care of him and his family in the future. But also pray that your husband lives for today.

God doesn't want us to know the future, He wants us to know Him. He wants us to trust Him to guide us into the future one step at a time. In order to understand God's leading, we must seek Him for every step.

This Week's Prayer:
Lord, I pray that You would give {husband's name} a vision for his future. Help him to understand that Your plans for him are for good and not evil -to give him a future and a hope {Jeremiah 29:11}. Fill him with the knowledge of Your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that he may have a walk worth of You, fully pleasing You, being fruitful in every good word and increasing in the knowledge of You {Colossians 1:9-10}. May he live with leading from the Holy Spirit and not walk in doubt and fear of what may happen. Help him to mature and grow in You daily, submitting to You all his dreams and desires, knowing that "the things which are impossible with men are possible with God" {Luke 18:27}. Give him God-ordained goals and show him how to conduct himself in a way that always invests in his future.

I pray that he will be active in service for You all the days of his life. Keep him from losing his sense of purpose and fill him with hope for his future as an "anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast" {Hebrews 6:19}. Give him "his heart's desire" {Psalm 21:2} and the "heritage of those who dear Your name" {Psalm 61:5}. Plant him firmly in Your house and keep him fresh and flourishing and bearing fruit into old age {Psalm 92:13-14}. And when it comes time for him to leave this earth and go to be with You, may he have such a strong vision for his eternal future that it makes his transition smooth, painless, and accompanied by peace and joy. Until that day, I pray he will find the vision for his future in You.
