Collaborate without boundaries

Day 29

  • Comments 5

Praying for my spouse by name is easy but what to pray for is the exhausting one. I have so much on my mind that I am almost blinded to what he needs. It does help with conversations but he seems to always catch me unaware. I will work harder on figuring out his needs but it is very hard when he told me what he did about being lost. I hope that God can hear me about him and will answer me. My spouse is very unhappy and wants to stay that way so it makes it more fun with whomever he is talking with now.

  • Even if he is talking to someone, he will realize it is  all not based on truth.  and  the imprint of the covenant of marriage is on his  dna.  

    Just him saying  he wants to stay unhappy shows he doen'st want to  be unhappy.  God did not design us that way.  and he is having a pity party for  himself.  It will hit him at one point what  foolishness he is doing in trying to stay unhappy.  He is just rationalizing excuses to himself why it is okay for him to act the way he is. it will be hard for him  to live this  way.  But he will try to hold on the best he can.

  • So as he is being the way he is, it is  important for you to remain consistent in what you are learning from the dares.

  • I have prayed for my wife by name many times over the last 24 hours after reading that Dare. (You and I  are on the same schedule it seems.) I pray for her physical health, her mental health and her spiritual health. I pray for God to show her the world outside of her anger. I pray for her to be able to see the love of God and the possibilities of Him being in charge of her life. I pray for her happiness even if it is at the expense of mine because I already know I will see Him someday and I am at peace.

    I can tell you for a 100% fact that your husband can come out of his depression. 18 months ago I sat with a pistol in my mouth and I begged God for help and for some reason I called my brother-in-law, who began a journey with me, that has led to a beautiful relationship between me and Christ. For months my wife cried with me and asked me what she could do for me. I pushed her away and told her there was nothing but now I look back and I appreciate all the energy she put into helping me.

    Now its my turn to help her. Its your turn to help your husband.

    "In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God."

    Romans 8:26-27

  • Have you heard of the book called "The Power of a Praying Wife" by Stormie Omartian? If you are unsure how to pray for your spouse this might be a great resource for you.

    There is really no right or wrong that to ask for. Pray for your needs, as well as your husbands. and that God would help show you his needs. God is hearing your prayers. And he is answering them. He will answer them in the perfect way and with perfect timing, but it may not be the plan you have in mind. Remember that God's plan is perfect.

  • I can not thank y'all enough for all these words of encouragement but also the way I should dig deeper into prayer. I have never been great at praying but I try so God hears me. I usually have to forget self and just think of others best interest.  If I could do this all the time I would be better than today. I will take everything that has been said and use it to further my relationship with God.
