The good man brings good things
out of the good stored up in him,
and the evil man brings evil things
out of the evil stored up in him.
- Matthew 12:35.
Lord, fill my husband with Your love and peace today. May there be a calmness, serenity, and sense of well-being established in him because his life is God-controlled, rather than flesh-controlled. Enable him to walk in his house with a clean and perfect heart before You (Psalm 101:2) . Shine the light if Your Spirit upon him and fill him with Your love.
I pray that he will be kind and patient, not selfish or easily provoked. Enable him to bear all things, hope all things, and endure all things (I Corinthians 13:7). Release him from anger, unrest, anxiety, concerns, inner turmoil, strife and pressure. May he not be broken in spirit because of sorrow (Proverbs 15:13), but enjoy the continual feast of a merry heart (Proverbs 15:15). Give him a spirit of joy and keep him from growing into a grumpy old man. Help him to be anxious for nothing, but give thanks in all things so he can know the peace that passes all understanding. May he come to the point of saying, "I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content" (Philippians 4:11) I say to my husband this day, "The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace" (Numbers 6:24-26).* In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
Whoever has no rule over his own spirit
is like a city broken down, without walls.
- Proverbs 25:28
Though I have the gift of prophecy,
and understand all mysteries and all knowledge,
and thought I have all faith, so that I could move mountains,
but have not love, I am nothing.
- I Corinthians 13:2.
