Be a Praying Wife This Year

This is the first Sunday of the month and time for a cyber-prayer meeting.

As a reminder for why we do this, I’d like to share an email I received awhile back (thanks, Adrienne!).

On another note, myself and 4 other women from church have been meeting every other week to pray over our marriages and husbands. The fruit of our prayer (after only meeting for about 2 months) has been fairly miraculous!!!

Be a Praying Wife This Year - Join us in praying for our marriages.

My marriage went from the south side of mediocre to being wonderfully revitalized. Things aren’t perfect, but my husband and I have connected in a way that had changed my perspective about him and our marriage. I smile again when I think of him; that has not been the case for awhile. I wish I would have done this years ago.  

God’s word isn’t kidding: “Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” Matthew 18:19-20 Corporate prayer is a powerful thing!

Please join me in praying for the other wives and marriages represented by The Generous Wife list (friends and family too). If you have a prayer request, please add it as a comment to this post.

Lord, as we approach a new year, help us become women of prayer. Remind us to daily hold our husbands and marriages up to you. Give us the grace to love and be loved in an imperfect world. Thank you, Lord, for Your goodness to us. Help us look for Your handiwork in all we do. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  1. I have a wonderful husband and a wonderful marriage, but God is not at the center. There was a time when He was, but we have drifted away from corporate worship and fellowship. Please pray with me that the Lord will draw us back to fellowship with Him as a couple and give us a joint desire to study and pray together.

  2. Please pray in agreement with me for my marriage. We’re days away for our divorce being finalized. I’m standing in the gap for my marriage to be restored but mostly for my husband to fully surrender and submit to God! Amen & thank you sisters for standing with me.

  3. Please pray for my husband and me to fully surrender anything we are holding back to the LORD.

  4. Prayer is so important…I think Tennyson said it best in “The Passing Of Arthur”, the last poem in the cycle, “The Idylls Of The King”:

    If thou shouldst never see my face again,
    Pray for my soul. More things are wrought by prayer
    Than this world dreams of. Wherefore, let thy voice
    Rise like a fountain for me night and day.
    For what are men better than sheep or goats
    That nourish a blind life within the brain,
    If, knowing God, they lift not hands of prayer
    Both for themselves and those who call them friend?
    For so the whole round earth is every way
    Bound by gold chains about the feet of God.

  5. Please pray for the strength in my marriage with my husband as we welcome our third child this month.

  6. I am married to an asexual man for many years. He is a wonderful husband in all other ways he is just not sexual I have tried everything. I pray for sexual discipline … I always feel guilty after finally having sex with him. I know he is just going through the motion for me … I feel like I can’t go on like this. I love him, I’m committed to him but I have to change what I can. I have to stop wanting sex with my non sexual husband. It drives me crazy.

    • Mam, I think it’s very caring that he is willing to be sexual with you. I encourage you to ask occasionally and allow him to take care of your sexual drive. I would also encourage you both to see a counselor to talk this through. I know a few asexual folks who have great marriages. It can be done, but you’ll probably need someone to help you figure out what that will look like for you and your husband.

      • Thank you for your thoughts. You said I should occasionally ask for sex. What did you have in mind? How often would be fair to my husband ?

        • I don’t know what you are currently doing, but if it is not often, I would ask weekly and make it a part of a fun time doing a number of things. Go see a movie, stop for coffee, snuggle going to bed and ask if he’d be willing to have sex. Sometime when you are not going to have sex, open up some discussion. Most asexual folk understand that they are not the norm and he may be willing to be more sexual if he understands your need.
