When you intercede for your spouse, you’re indirectly praying for yourself. Both of you are now one and you must be always ready to lift each other up in prayers.
I applied one of these principles after the Holy Spirit taught me about praying for my husband’s mind.
My husband woke up so cranky a day before and that caused a strain between us. I resolved to pray for him, having learnt the importance of praying for his mind during my quiet time the next day. Alas, he woke up full of life and so joyful and that lasted the entire day. Halleluyah!
I sincerely hope we’ve been applying all that we’re learning on this site. They are inspired by the Holy Spirit and guess what? The principles work!
So today, we’ll be addressing praying for his or her body. Each of these components of man are very important and need to function maximally in order for man to be at his best.
How do I pray for my spouse’s body?
Health and security.
Pray that your spouse is healthy in the body because that is one of the will of God for him or her.
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. (3 John 1:2 KJV)
It is not the will of God for man to be hoping in and out of the hospital due to one illness or the other.
They may or may not be fighting a particular ailment, pray for them still.
God honours the prayer of intercession and He answers them.
Secure the safety in prayers too. Ask God to protect their every steps.
Our spouses should not be victims of accidents and other bad occurrences. Their lives must be spared.
Go to God on your spouse’s behalf, take up their challenges as your own and you will see God working marvelously in their lives.
The list of what to pray for is endless but no matter what, make it a habit to pray for your husband/wife daily and your marriage will be better for it.
Pray for him or her everywhere at anytime. Speak God’s Word over them.
The man, his wife and God are in a covenant relationship and He loves to hear them talk to Him.
So, pray with all boldness and seriousness.
When it’s all said and done, remember to thank God before and when all these things come to pass.
He instructed us to do so in His word.
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. (Philippians 4:6 KJV)
God honours the prayers of His children and he loves to fellowship with them.
Talk to Him this morning.
