Day 22: His Emotions

Make no friendship with an angry man,
and with a furious man do not go,
lest you learn his ways
and set a snare for your soul.
- Proverbs 22:24-25
Lord, You have said in Your Word that You redeem our souls when we put our trust in You (Psalm 34:22). I pray that my husband would have faith in You to redeem his soul from negative emotions. May he never be controlled by depression, anger, anxiety, jealousy, hopelessness, fear or suicidal thoughts. Specifically I pray about his homesickness (add your area of concern there). Deliver him from this and all other controlling emotions (Psalm 40:17). I know that only You can deliver and heal, but use me as Your instrument of restoration. Help me not to be pulled down with him when he struggles. Enable me instead to understand and have words to say that will bring life.
Free him to share his deepest feelings with me and others who can help. Liberate him to cry when he needs to and not bottle his emotions inside. At the same time, give him the gift of laughter and ability to find humor even in serious situations. Teach him to take his eyes off his circumstances and trust in You, regardless of how he is feeling. Give him patience to possess his soul and the ability to take charge of it (Luke 21:19). Anoint him with "the oil of joy" (Isaiah 61:3), refresh him with Your Spirit, and set him free from negative emotions this day.* In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
for His name's sake.
- Psalm 23:3
