Dear God, thank you for choosing this man to be my husband. Please give him strength to love me and my children. I know that I am not perfect and I can be difficult, but please don’t let him get tired of being a husband and father to me and my children. Don’t let the responsibilities overwhelm him, but always make a way for him.
It’s not easy to be a man. Most men feel a deep seated responsibility for their wives and children. (If your husband lacks this sense of responsibility, add that to your prayers today).
You need to pray that your husband will not grow weary. That he will not become tired. It is easy to become tired; even we as women grow tired sometimes. For some men, the burden becomes so heavy that they check out, literally and figuratively.
Pray that your husband will not check out of your marriage. Pray that he will be present physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually…that he will be present in every way that matters.
We are not asking for strength that translates to physical power, but we are asking for strength in his inner being. Strength of mind and of purpose. All strength comes from God; anything that is not from HIM will wear out. When God gives your man strength, there is nothing he will not be able to do.
