Valentine’s Day is 10 days away. Yes, it is true.
Before my husband came into my life, I very much disliked Valentine’s Day. It seemed like enough for couples to be able to show each other how much they were loved the rest of the year. Why did there have to be an entire day dedicated to proclaim the extent of that love? Gag.
It was during this time, that the Lord began to remind my heart that while I didn’t know who I was going to marry, He did. The Lord began to prompt me to pray for the heart of my husband long before we ever met.
With Valentine’s Day approaching, the Lord has reminded me just how eager I was to meet my husband and how fervently I prayed for him before he was mine. The Lord has asked me to begin to pray again for the heart of my husband. He has given me these 10 specific characteristics to declare.
So, whether you are still trusting the Lord for the one you will wed, or you are knee-deep in married memories, I want to invite you to pray these 10 prayers with me over the next 10 days. Don’t feel like you have to stop on Valentine’s Day either! Feel free to pray these 10 simple prayers over your husband’s heart for the next 10 weeks, 10 months or 10 years! Together, let’s believe to see transformations in our families as we encourage the hearts of our husbands through prayer.
Lord, I ask that you would touch my husband’s heart. I pray that his heart would be…
1.) CONFIDENT of Your love for Him.
2.) SENSITIVE to the promptings of Your Holy Spirit.
3.) BRAVE as he follows you in all areas of his life.
4.) SOFT so that he may show Your love to others always.
5.) WISE in always discerning truth.
6.) GENTLE with my heart and the hearts of our children.
7.) RECEPTIVE of my love for him.
8.) STRONG in doing what you have called him to do.
9.) PROTECTED from the lusts that would try to ensnare it.
10.) REFLECTIVE of the love of his Heavenly Father.
Father, I thank You for the wonderful man that You have given me. Help me to always see Him as you do. Help me to remember to pray for His heart daily. Grow our relationship emotionally and spiritually as together we pursue You in all things.
