God’s Word – Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. Psalm 61:1-2
Introduction to 40 Days of Prayers for our Husbands ~Marriage is a ministry of sacrificial love for one another.

The Challenge:

If you are married – lf you are single take the challenge of praying faithfully through God’s word for our marriages and our husbands. Praying God’s Word is effective and removes the influence of our flesh and brings healing… It keeps us accountable to God in an act of worship by praying his powerful word. Praying God’s word allows his will be done and not ours.
God’s word is active and alive – For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account. Hebrews 4:11-13
Psalm 61 Prayer for Our Husband ~
1 Hear your daughter’s cry, O God;
listen to her prayer.
2 From the ends of the earth your daughter will call to you,
she calls as her heart grows faint;
lead your daughter to the rock that is higher than her.
[Our Lord Jesus]
3 For you have been her refuge,
a strong tower against the foe.
4 Your daughter will long to dwell in your tent forever
and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.
5 For you, God, have heard her vows;
you have given her the heritage of those who fear your name.
6 Increase the days of the king’s life,
his years for many generations.
7 May he be enthroned in his God’s presence forever;
appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him.
Thank you Father for you are glorious and mighty to save in our troubles, in our trials you bring forth your radiance and power through the power of your word. You have poured in our hearts the joy of your presence and your daughter will not be shaken. You move us from glory to glory – strength to strength through you we relinquish the battles because your word states; the battle is not ours but the battle is yours. Bring us the victory over all troubles, over all our needs. Heal us from the brokenness in our marriages in those vulnerable places that make it hard for us to communicate in respect and in love. Heal us in rearing our children that were gifted to us from you, help to encourage and not exasperate our children. Heal us in our work and work relationships that we would submit to those in authority and those who are over us in the Lord. For those of your daughters that are single keep them drawn in the shadow of your wing and sow in their hearts the continued joy of your salvation along with the promises of your word. We will lift up our heads to you Father because you are the lifter of our heads. In you our hearts rejoice. Jesus is the King of glory – and yes, the king [our husbands] are in King Jesus hand he stirs it like a water course and directs it the way it should go!
Father your daughter will ever sing in praise of your name
and fulfill her vows day after day.
In Jesus Name… AMEN!
Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
In Christ Love,
Jennifer Pettiford
