My prayer

Dear Lord, Please help me to be unveiled before You and before my husband. I am becoming more aware of the need to make myself fully known to You and to my husband. As I remain unveiled, please transform me and help me embrace Your role for me as a wife. Thank You so much for caring about me in such great ways. I love You, God! I am so thankful that You sent Your Son so I could be set free! I pray that I am an unveiled wife, a wife who continually seeks after You! I pray that I would be transparent in my relationship with my husband, that I would be willing to share my whole heart, without holding anything back. Please fill me with Your courage and Your truth. The enemy is so good at infusing my heart with lies, convincing me to hide, convincing me to remain isolated and broken, convincing me that I am not good enough to radiate Christ. I claim freedom. May Your Holy Spirit write Your truth on my heart so much that there would be no room for any lies. May Your precious will be done in me and through me. In Jesus’ name, AMEN!


Wife After God…Day 28

I have to keep coming back…..

C ommunicating through :

  • honest conversations 
  • Initiate sexual intimacy 
  • Confess sins 
  • Pray together 
  • Go on date nights 
  • Pursue each other passionately 
  • Talk about goals and dreams 
  • Serve each other 
  • Bless each other

So, why do these things scare me so much?  Because there is a good chance I would be the only one working on it.  Or, maybe I am selfish enough, that I don’t want to hear his goals and dreams, because I may have to give something up, they may conflict with mine.   Or, I will have to listen to why it is my fault that they haven’t been reached.  Or, just knowing there isn’t often follow through.  It would be honest to communicate this, but he gets hurt feelings, and everything shuts down. 

Father, I don’t know how to communicate with my husband.  Teach me how to speak the truth in love.  With Craig and everyone that I come in contact with.  

B uilding a healthy , joyful, God-centered marriage where intimacy thrives is attainable, but it takes time and energy. It builds up over time as trust, confidence and faithfulness are produced. You are responsible to fulfill your part and your husband is responsible for his. Your marriage will reach this fulfillment when both of you are working together toward oneness. However, God calls you to remain steadfast in doing your part. Do it regardless of whether your husband is doing his. Let love motivate you and fuel your heart to persevere. Your marriage is worth it, it will always be worth it. Dear Lord, I lift up my marriage to You in thankfulness. You know every detail of my marriage, what my husband and I have been through, and where we are currently. May You help us to increase our intimacy. I desire to know my husband deeply, but I also know that requires that I am vulnerable and honest with him. Please give me the courage to open up to my husband, to talk about important matters of the heart, to share each other’s goals, and to encourage each other in great ways. I pray that I can be a wife willing to initiate sexually, willing to serve joyfully, and willing to love extravagantly. May Your Holy Spirit ignite a fire in our marriage, a desire to draw close to one another and to become familiar with each other. I pray that You would soften my husband’s heart toward me. Bless him with a desire to get to know me more. I pray against the enemy from stealing moments of intimacy, distracting us with selfish desires and tempting us away from experiencing true intimacy. May our love story and our intimacy reveal Your power so that others may be encouraged. In Jesus’ name, AMEN!

From Wife After God 

Day 28

I have fallen behind, but need to finish this lrayer devotional.  

Now for the matters you wrote about: “It is good for a man not to have sexual relations with a woman.” But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband. The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body but yields it to her husband. In the same way, the husband does not have authority over his own body but yields it to his wife. Do not deprive each other except perhaps by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

1Co 7:1‭-‬5 NIV

Praying for your marriage 

From #wifeaftergod

Dear Lord, Thank You for the gift of marriage. It is such a blessing to have the opportunity to experience intimacy through prayer with my husband. I pray that my husband would have passion to pray with me and that we would devote ourselves to it daily. Help us to center our marriage on You, Lord. Please give us the words to say when we pray and reveal to us what things need prayer. I pray that our marriage would mature as you transform our hearts. Increase our intimacy, help us manage our finances, may You free us from sin that entangles us, and may your will be done through us. May we experience extraordinary in our marriage. In Jesus’ name, AMEN!

Little moments

Sometimes, it is the little things that make you sit up and take notice. Like knowing you have been under attack…. Because how can you go from being full of joy and feeling blessed, and having your heart melt when you look at someone and then, like the flip of a switch, feel so alone and isolated from that same person?  No doubt some of it is just my own personal history, and how certain events cause me to immediately go back to a previous emotional response…

What ever it is, I keep finding myself back in the same place.  So, today’s devotional was timely. (I should have read it sooner, but also find myself sidetracked often). I need to be in prayer for my husband.  Not to change him, but to bless him. That in doing so, God would change me also.  Is that being selfish?  I’m not sure if it is or not, but I do need to pray more….
