Five for Him, Four for Her

I’ve opened The White Stone page again today to share a couple inspirational sites I discovered a little bit ago.

Praising God and praying His will for your spouse is guaranteed to be your most rewarding work as his wife. With these five powerful prayers, you will be arming your marriage with God’s Word and investing in his role as your spiritual leader.

Satisfaction in God Alone

I praise You, the God of all wisdom for husbands. Thank You, God, for knowing the longings of my husband’s heart far better than I do. You know why he hungers for ______ and ______. You know how these yearnings affect his decisions and how those decisions affect our marriage.

You are the God who satisfies the longing soul. You fill the hungry soul with good things. Here is _____’s heart and soul, Lord. I lift him up to You and ask You to fill him with the good You know He needs (Psalm 107:9; Matthew 6:8).   Click HERE to read more.

4 Prayers Every Husband Needs to Pray over His Wife

You’ll never love your wife more than when you pray for her. Humbling yourself before an all-powerful God and asking Him to do what only He can in her life—that’s a level of intimacy beyond anything the world has to offer. Praying for her makes you realize how much of a treasure she is, the woman God gave you. You’re pouring yourself into her complete physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

Let these four prayers guide you as you cry out to God for her each day.

Protect Her Joy

Thank you, Father, for the gift of my wife. You are the giver of all good and perfect blessings, and I’m amazed how You show Your love through her. Please help me to cherish such an amazing gift (James 1:17).    Click HERE to read more.

In Us and Through Us

So here I am thinking of the Text about being content and I go looking for it.

For the life of me I did not remember it is smack dab in the middle of that chapter; that it followed that verse.

Hebrews 13.

Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we may boldly say:
“The Lord is my helper;
I will not fear.
What can man do to me?”  source

Do you know what comes before verse 5?
An admonishment to LET brotherly love continue.
To forget not to be nice to strangers, they might be angels.
To remember the prisoners.
And then —- MARRIAGE.

Well! Where is non covetous conduct more needed than in marriage?  Where would contentment be more needed than marriage? Where would more problems be solved by contentment than in marriage?  And where the greater need for His promise: I will never leave you nor forsake you than in our marriages!?

So! In all these things, brotherly and sisterly relationships; strangers and folks in bondage, AND in our marriages, in all these things, HE is our Helper!  In all these things, with all these people, HE will not forsake us, so let us be content while He works on all these things in us and through us!

 Well, I did not expect that. But I like it!smiley-face-3
