Day 23: His Walk

For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
the Lord bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
from those whose walk is blameless.
- Psalm 84:11
"O Lord, I know the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man who walks to direct his own steps" (Jeremiah 10:23). Therefore, Lord, I pray that You would direct my husband's steps. Lead him in Your light, teach him Your way, so he will walk in Your truth. I pray that he would have a deeper walk with You and an ever progressing hunger for Your Word. May Your presence be like a delicacy he never ceases to crave. Lead him on Your path and make him quick to confess when he strays from it. Reveal to him any hidden sin that would hinder him from walking rightly before You. May he experience deep repentance when he doesn't live in obedience to Your laws. Create in him a clean heart and renew a steadfast spirit within him. Don't cast him away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from him (Psalm 51:10-11).
Lord, Your Word says that those who are in the flesh cannot please you (Romans 8:8). So I pray that You will enable my husband to walk in the Spirit and not in the flesh and thereby keep himself "from the paths of the destroyer" (Psalm 17:4). As he walks in the Spirit, may he bear the fruit of the Spirit, which is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23). Keep him on the Highway of Holiness so that the way he walks will be integrated into every part of his life.* In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
(If I have any prayer warriors out there that would do me the honor of adding my husband to your prayers, I would greatly appreciate it. We moved in April & he had to basically start over at his new position, repeating all the training again. He has been very homesick for the town, the job, his friends & coworkers that we left behind. I am very concerned for him because he just seems to be getting more & more depressed. Will you pray for my husband?)
I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.
Be completely humble and gentle;
be patient, bearing with one another in love.
- Ephesians 4:1-2
