God taught me a long time ago that when I am busy praying for my husband, I am less tempted to lash out at him or stay angry with him.
I remember the first time God taught me this. I was angry at my husband for signing us up for a marriage class at church. I went to God and was praying to Him, "Lord, I have NO clue what is wrong with that man. He is crazy. Why in the world he wants to take this marriage class I will never know. Lord, You have got to make him see that he is the problem in our marriage--not me. Lord, You have got to change him and show him how hateful he is being to me. Show him Lord the error of his ways."
God politely showed me that I was the one needed changing. It started the moment a friend of mine put the book The Power of a Praying Wife in my hands. That was the best thing that could ever happen to me.
Now I find myself praying for him constantly. I don't lash out as much. When I have issues with him, I go to God first--or try to--before I say anything to him. It helps prepare my heart and his for what I feel like God is wanting me to share.
My advice for you today is to definitely pray for your man. This is the ultimate way to show him how much you love him. Don't be afraid to ask him today, What can I pray for you today? What are you struggling with husband? Be sure and pray for him if you ask him. It will make all the world of difference.
