What Husbands Want – Walk With Me in Christ

October 17, 2010

in the generous life


A number of men were very hungry to have a spiritual partner in their walk with the Lord, they especially wanted prayer (to pray with their wives and to have their wives pray for them).

Their other comment was that they needed their wife to encourage them in their walk, but that they were often discouraged by their wife’s spiritual standards for them. They needed understanding as they mature and criticism was particularly hurtful.

My thinking on this is that men have a unique struggle here. They have not always had good role models in this area, so they are not often prepared to take on the role of spiritual leader in the home. They are having to learn “on the job” and often without any real help or instruction. Let’s pray for our guys and be especially careful to encourage them, celebrate their successes and sympathize with their struggles.

Generous tip: Ask your husband each morning if there is something that he needs prayer for. Be his prayer partner for the challenges he faces in life. If he responds with the same question, start with simple requests and be sure to encourage him when there are answers to prayer.

Pray. It isn’t a sign of weakness; it is your strength.  Orville Kelly

I totally agree with this! Prayer shouldn’t be just a part of being a Christian but it should be a lifestyle. We need to ask God for wisdom, provision, decisions and in every aspects of our lives.
