I have recently gotten into blogging as you probably have noticed. I am following the Women Living Well and have been for quite some time now. Courtney is the blog writer and is a very inspirational, Christian, down to earth woman. Right now, there is a series for the Mondays in September called Revive Your Marriage. Week 1 is revive your prayers for your marriage. She says to say a little prayer every time you see your wedding ring. I think that is a great reminder to pray for my husband. I get so caught up with what I want and my "needs" that I often forget to pray for Tom. He has a very stressful job being a marine and being gone more than he is here with us. A book that is a good outline to go by what to pray for when you are praying for your husband is Power of a Praying Wife by Stormie Omartian. I forget that he needs prayer too, in every aspect of his life! Some of the list are: his work, his finances, his priorities, his trials, his fatherhood...the list goes on! I am challenging myself to pray for him before myself. Sometimes, however, I do pray for him before me. It's usually because I am so frustrated with him that all I can do is pray because I don't want to say or do something that is not pleasing or honorable to him and God. Marriage is hard. Prayer works. God has the answer and is there for you! I have learned this time and time again. I encourage you out there to follow Courtney's blog with me :)
