Praying for my Boyfriend....

Hello Dear Ones...

Once again I have left you for the long days of being a single parent, winding down the school year with two very busy children. We have had dance recitals, band concerts, parades, graduation and parties and many other activities that keep me away from my computer at home. I will be posting pictures of these as soon as things settle down a bit... maybe next week :)

But today, my friend Sandra over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom started a new series that I just had to post. She is spending the next 31 days praying for her husband. She is an Air Force wife, however, this works for all non-military families as well.

So many times we spend time praying for everyone and everything. We, as prayer warriors, can get besieged with prayer requests and we end up spending time praying for people we may not even know. This is not necessarily a bad thing, however, how often do we spend time praying for our husbands or significant others?

I don't know about you, but I pray a lot for my kids, my brothers, my nieces and nephews and father. I pray for my friends, for our government, for our military members and for my congregation. How often do I bend my knees and beseech God for my boyfriend and his well-being, physically, mentally and emotionally?

This man, this gorgeous, wonderful, supportive, loving man, who would do anything for me. The one who takes care of my children as if they were his own. Who steadfastly pushes me to better myself and makes me want to be a better person. The one who believes I am capable of anything and that I am prettier, sexier, smarter, kinder than I ever thought I could be. He is the one who makes me want to be the person he believes I am. Why do I not pray as much for him?

So starting today, June 1, 2011, I will join Sandra and many other women as they set apart a moment of their day to raise husbands/boyfriends/significant others up to the Lord and watch the blessings of our Great God rain down on them.

Please consider joining me...

Much love and blessings to you all!  


  1. Sheila, I'm so glad you're joining in :) I love that there are so many wonderful women praying for their husbands :)

  2. I keep the "31 days of praying for your Husband" reference in my Bible. There are probably several versions of this out there in blog land. I also have one for my kids. It really helps to keep your prayers specific for each member of your family. It's a great help in daily prayer. You're going to love it.


God's many blessings on you!
