Praying for a Spouse Day Seventeen

Protecting our Marriage

But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.

2 Thessalonians 3:3 

What a humbling prayer. Honestly it’s like the author, Jennifer, is in my thoughts, sometimes!

The second sentence says, “There are many times I have the urge to reprimand or try to fix my husband, yet I am learning that I am not a substitute for Your Holy Spirit.”  Woah.  Can you hear the brakes screeching?  Because, they ARE!  Submitting my desires to our Lord and asking God to radically transform my Hubby is a much better plan!

I pray for BUILDING and STRENGTHENING for our union.  I pray that ANYTHING we lust after in our flesh will be overrun with the LOVE we have for each other and our Heavenly Daddy.

We’ve been carried through some incredible circumstances in the amount of time we’ve been married and John 16:33 reminds us that there WILL be more to come.  But I will not live in fear – HE has overcome the world.

I will keep my eyes focused on Him.

I was also reminded as I meditated throughout the day that we should all be putting on the full armour of God – for our marriage!  Ephesians 6:11
