Day 17 of our SHMILY Time from our 17th chapter reading in The Power of a Praying Wife by Stormie OMartian, brings us to:
Check out Amy’s post at Dandelion Seeds for Day 17…
I can share, praying for my husband’s relationships can make a huge difference in whom he spends company with. We need to claim protection and guidance over them… while not trying to control my husband – God did give me authority over the enemy, so I can pray for our heavenly Father’s protection! And I praise Him for the protection He’s given.
Father, I thank You for the relationships you’ve given us & I ask for protection regarding them. Please continue to open doors for godly relationships & close doors to those that are not. Bring more godly people into our lives (p.132) & take away any relationships that are a detriment & not Your will for us. I pray for my husband’s and any close friends salvation. Help Dave to desire mature, believing male friends with which he can gain wisdom, strength and encouragement from. Please help Dave to also build closer relations with his family members as You would want him to. Help him to be the husband, father, son, cousin, and friend You want, Father God. Build within him to desire a closer a relationship with You, draw him closer & help him to know the need of prayer. Draw us closer as husband and wife, for an unbreakable friendship! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
