Completing Him Challenge-Week 3

I'm participating in the Completing Him Challenge from Courtney's Women Living Well blog.

This week the challenge is to pray more for our husbands…to pray for them daily.

She suggests using Stormie Omartian’s "Power of a Praying Wife" to use as a guide.

I must admit that I have this book & I’ve read parts of it in the past and then quit reading and actually praying for Eric like I should. I guess sometimes I get frustrated that the prayers don’t work quickly enough, but in reality the problem is usually me. So this week I’ve committed to seeing this book through to the end and then reading it again and again. It is divided into 30 little chapters—different areas to pray for our husbands. Here are a few of them:

1. His Wife -what a good place to start

2. His Work

3. His Finances

4. His Affections

5. His Temptations

6. His Mind

7. His Fears

8. His Purpose

9. His Choices

10. His Health

11. His Protection

12. His Integrity

13. His Reputation

14. His Priorities

15. His Relationships

16. His Fatherhood

17. His Attitude

18. His Emotions

19. His Walk

20. His Faith

Since we July starts tomorrow, I thought it would be perfect to read a chapter a day during the month of July and pray for those specific areas of his life each day.

Courtney also suggested that we ask our husbands each morning how we can pray for them that day. I started this a few days ago, and I think it will help us communicate better and help him to know that I care about what he’s doing at work each day.

Finally, she suggested that we say a short prayer for our husbands every time we see our wedding ring. I love that idea. I’ve been trying to be more conscious of that as well.

So you’ll have to keep me accountable and check up on me throughout the month of July to see if I’m keeping up with my commitments!

Becoming more like HIM!
