Praying for my husband is the most powerful thing I can do for my marriage, our children, our family. Â Prayer can do more to change a situation or give me fresh perspective, than anything else. Â But I didn’t always pray for my husband on a consistent basis, nor did we always pray together.Â
One of my very favorite books, and one that has had a meaningful impact on our marriage is Power of a Praying Wife, buy a copy for yourself and purchase Power of a Praying Husband for your spouse. Â I think those books can be life changing, or at least marriage changing – which in turn does change your life!
When we were in Florida in February, we took a bit of time to get on the same page with our prayer life. Â Specific things we wanted to be praying about for our family, each child, and for each other. Â From items such as our continued journey to living a more healthy lifestyle, to the jobs that we need to perform each day. Â I know it’s a great comfort to me knowing that I can count on the prayers of my husband.
Maybe it would work to start aÂ Novena to St. Joseph the Worker, to end on Father’s Day? Â I know I spend a lot of time thinking about the perfect gift to give my husband, as I should, but it doesn’t get any better than praying for the intercession of St. Joseph, for the man who leads our family.
Another book that has impacted me is this one by Dr. Laura. Â I know, people either love her or don’t….but the book is worth checking out. Â It isn’t so much about praying for our husbands as it is finding ways to truly respect our spouse.
