[God] has saved us and called us to a holy life--
not because of anything we have done
but because of his own purpose and grace.
This grace was given us in Christ Jesus
before the beginning of time...
- II Timothy 1:9.
Lord, I pray that my husband will clearly hear the call You have on his life. Help him to realize who he is in Christ and give him certainty that he was created for a high purpose. May the eyes of his understanding be enlightened so that he will know what is the hope of Your calling (Ephesians 1:18).
Lord, when You call us, You also enable us. Enable my husband to walk worthy of his calling and become the man of God You made him to be. Continue to remind him of what You've called him to and don't let him get sidetracked with things that are unessential to Your purpose. Strike down discouragement so that it will not defeat him. Lift his eyes above the circumstances of the moment so he can see the purpose for which You created him. Give him patience to wait for Your perfect timing. I pray that the desires of his heart will not be in conflict with the desires of Your heart. May he seek You for direction, and hear when You speak to his soul.* In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
Nevertheless, each one should retain the place in life
that the Lord assigned to him
and to which God has called him.
This is the rule I lay down in all the churches.
- I Corinthians 7:17
May He grant you according to your heart's desire,
and fulfill all your purposes.
- Psalm 20:4.
