Prayer for My Husband – Results

I have seen good results from praying this prayer for my husband.

Have you?

I have been praying this prayer for my husband for many years. I have seen changes in his attitudes, thinking, and priorities. I am so thankful that God gave me this prayer so long ago. My husband is a real family man now! He really cares about what happens with our children. He wants to do his part in teaching them important principles and truths that will help them to live their lives in a successful way that fulfills God’s purpose for their lives. He is much more attentive and affectionate with me, too.

I want to know if any of you have prayed this prayer or a similar prayer or if you asked me to pray for your marriage – I would be grateful if you would share with us what God has done in your marriage and in your husband’s heart.

Please leave a comment and testify about what God has done for your marriage, so we can glorify and praise God together.

Thank you in advance!

Marriage Retreat in the Mountains of North Carolina

My husband, Gary, and I went to a marriage retreat called Come Away. Hal and Melanie Young hosted the retreat. They are really good teachers and wonderful hosts with a heart for families and marriage.

 

You can find their website at Raising Real Men.

Watch this scope in which Gary and I talked about our time at the retreat – some of what we learned and what we experienced there.

Asking for Help

If you ever felt like you should be able to do it all – and do it all by yourself, because otherwise you were a weak person, you might want to watch this scope I did when I was at one of my weakest times. You will learn that asking for help is not a sign of weakness, but can turn out to be a blessing and even enjoyable and lifegiving if you will allow God to bless you through others.

The quality isn’t good, but I think the message is good enough, that I decided to share it anyway.

Selah! Things I’m Thinking About

I should be careful not to make my kids my world. Because the day comes when I’m not their world.

I can’t control my kids’ choices, but I can control my own reactions to them. I can choose to keep my love on. I can keep the connection strong between my children and myself by loving them and showing affection no matter what and listening to them.

Selah.
