Part 3 of this series looks at verse 12. The verse says: She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. When I think about bringing my husband good, I think about praying for him daily. Supporting him in his role as leader of the family. Picking up the slack when he has had a hard day at work and needs to rest. This verse doesn’t say when she feels like it, it says ALL the days of her life. That means the rest of your life, you are supporting this man, praying for him, and helping him be the leader God has called him to be. Whether you think your husband deserves your help or not, God calls us to support him through thick and thin.
We also need to check our attitudes and our actions. Do we complain about having to do work around the house? Do we nag our husbands to do this or that? Do you only want to do nice things for your husband when he does nice things for you? Bad attitudes and behaviors just bring added stress to our husbands and our marriages. I promise, nagging will get you nowhere fast. If your husband is slacking in his role as leader, pray about it. Nagging will only make the situation worse. Trust me, I’ve been on both sides of this.
Our husbands need our prayers. We need to pray for them DAILY. It is one of the greatest gifts we can give them. I highly recommend the book, The Power of a Praying® Wife. It has helped me so much in praying about different aspects of my husbands life.
Strength & Dignity Part 3 action item:
Start praying for your husband on a daily basis. Start a prayer journal or buy The Power of a Praying Wife book (if you don’t already have it). Add this prayer time into your quiet time with God.
