The Power of A Praying Wife: Be Happy in Your Marriage
Problems in marriage are inevitable. The question is – can you remain satisfied in your marriage in spite of differences? Can your marriage thrive when there are differences between you? The answer is yes: A praying woman does not have problem in their marriage. A praying woman recognize the fact that the key to successful marriage is to continually work it out and grow up. Acknowledge the problem and talk about it. Your love for each other doesn’t have to be overwhelmed by your differences. The followings are the power of a praying woman
A praying woman believes that, God is the only one who should have power over their souls.” They follow Gods instructions in whatever they do, that is the reason their marriage is always successful.
God direct a praying woman. They don’t leave their relationships to chance. They pray for godly people to come into their life with whom they can connect. They don’t force relationships to happen. They pray for them to happen and nurture it with prayer
A praying woman “rejoice always, they pray without ceasing, in everything they give thanks to God
A praying woman tell God, If they are angry at their husband, they don’t let it become a cancer that grows with each passing day. They don’t say, “I’m going to live my life and let him live his.” There’s a price to pay when we act entirely independently of one another. “Neither is man independent of woman, nor woman independent of man, in the Lord” (1 Corinthians 11:11).
A praying woman always say “Lord, nothing in me wants to pray for this man. I confess my anger, hurt, unforgiveness, disappointment, resentment, and hardness of heart toward him. Forgive me and create in me a clean heart and right spirit before You. Give me a new, positive, joyful, loving, forgiving attitude toward him. Where he has erred, reveal it to him and convict his heart about it. Lead him through the paths of repentance and deliverance. Help me not to hold myself apart from him emotionally, mentally, or physically because of unforgiveness. Where either of us needs to ask forgiveness of the other, help us to do so.
A praying woman will continue to tell God as follows instead of getting angry: If there is something I’m not seeing that’s adding to this problem, reveal it to me and help me to understand it. Remove any wedge of confusion that has created misunderstanding or miscommunication. Where there is behavior that needs to change in either of us, I pray You would enable that change to happen. As much as I want to hang on to my anger toward him because I feel it’s justified, I want to do what You want. I release all those feelings to You. Give me a renewed sense of love for him and words to heal this situation.”
I could come up with a long list of good things that can come about when you start covering your husband in prayer, but let me just cite a few:
a. Your husband will be blessed.
b. Your marriage will be blessed.
c. Your children will be blessed, if you have any, but this counts for your “future children” as well.
d. You will be blessed.
e. You will bless others with the testimony of your marriage and family life.
It may sound corny or cliché but it’s true. Once you begin to ask for God’s power (yes, the “power” of a praying wife comes from Him, of course) to move in your husband’s life, the blessings will come. I’m not saying that your marriage and family life will become perfect, nor will your trials, challenges and problems disappear overnight. But believe me, the difficulties of life will become easier to bear. In other words, you will learn to “make it blissful,” as we like to say over here
So how do we begin praying for our husbands? Here are a few tips, from a wife who is a “non-expert” but is journeying in faith towards a better prayer life:
Make a decision to be prayerful. Or at least pray more than you usually do. Many of us – myself included – struggle with finding time to pray amidst our hectic schedules. Still, we would be more blessed and blissful if we chose to find time to pray. We can start with just five minutes a day, then work our way up. We can even inject prayer into our daily routines – when we’re doing chores, when we’re working, when we’re playing with the kids, etc.

His wife (you)
Now this may seem too much for us to handle all at once, so try to see which aspect or area your husband needs prayer cover the most and start from there. The important thing is to start somewhere.
