This week in The Power of a Praying Wife, we’re learning to pray for our husbands to be able to walk the walk and talk the talk. In our culture, those are phrases that we use all the time, but we use them to mean a lot of different things. With that in mind, I think it’s important that we discuss what exactly that walk and talk should look like before we start praying for them. The description of the walk and talk we should be praying for in these chapters are very rooted in the Bible, which I think is how all of our prayers should be.
Pray for your husband to walk
- with moral correctness (Psalm 84:11)
- without fault (Proverbs 28:18)
- with godly advisers (Psalm 1:1)
- in obedience (Psalm 128:1)
- with people of wisdom (Proverbs 13:20)
- with integrity (Proverbs 10:9)
- on a path of holiness (Isaiah 35:8)
Pray for your husband to talk
- without bitterness, wrath, or anger (Ephesians 4:31)
- without negativity (Philippians 2:14)
- without rushing (Proverbs 15:28)
- with encouraging words (Proverbs 18:21)
- to build others up (Proverbs 15:4)
- with wisdom (Ecclesiastes 10:12)
If the description that Stormie gives of a desirable walk and talk are not the way your husband is living his life, don’t be discouraged. This week we also read about praying for our husbands’ repentance. Continue praying fervently that God will deliver your husband from the sin that holds him captive, and never lose faith that God will bring your husband to repentance.
