Building Our Husbands up Through Prayer

Hello, Ladies:

I apologize for MIA. I've been quite swamped with freelancing, which is a good thing!

I wanted to draw your attention to Renee Swope's blog, particularly her post on Friday. I have included it as a second devotional in our Girlfriend Devotional section.

I must confess that I have struggled with my husband in the last few weeks over a few issues, and have had to remind myself to pray for the Lord's guidance and wisdom in speaking to my husband about issues where I feel he's not being the head of our household. Far from trying to get my own way, some of his actions and decisions I don't believe were done in the interest of our family, but in the interest of himself.

So, the question is how to approach him and suggest another option without raising my voice--which he doesn't like and doesn't respond well to--and still be respectful towards his role as head of the house.

Anyway, go to the Girlfriend Devotionals section or click on the title above it will take you to Renee's blog. I have been truly blessed by her and her messages. Her blog is one of my favourites.

Yes, I so agree that it is important for us to pray for our husband. We also need to pray for our use of wise words when we need to discuss things with our husbands. God will help us in this area too. I enjoyed reading through Renee's blog post.
