Prayer

Happy Wednesday my friends 🙂

For my post today, I’m going to copy one of the prayers from “The Power of a Praying Wife” by Stormie Omartian. It will be verbatim except for the small changes to make it a prayer for a husband as well as a wife. It is from page 197 – her prayer for faith in our spouses. Let’s pray . . .

“Lord, I pray that You will give (spouse’s name) an added measure of faith today. Enlarge his/her ability to believe in You, Your Word, Your promises, Your ways, and Your power.  Put a longing in his/her heart to talk with You and hear Your voice.  Give him/her an understanding of what it means to bask in Your presence and not just ask for things.  May he/she seek You, rely totally upon You, be led by You, put You first, and acknowledge You in everything he/she does.

Lord, You’ve said that ‘faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God’ (Romans 10:17).  Feed his/her soul with Your Word so his/her faith grows big enough to believe that with You all things are possible (Matthew 10:26).  Give him/her unfailing certainty that what You’ve promised to do, You will do (Romans 4:21).  Make his/her faith a shield of protection.  Put it into action to move the mountains in his/her life.  Your Word says, ‘the just shall live by faith’ (Romans 1:17);  I pray that he/she will live the kind of faith-filled life You’ve called us all to experience.  May he/she know with complete certainty ‘how great is Your goodness,  Which You have laid up for those who fear You, which You have prepared for those who trust in You’ (Psalm 31:19).

In Jesus’ Name – Amen!

PS – You could pray this prayer for yourself too by substituting a “me” or “I” for the he/she parts.
