Praying for Our Husbands (part 2)

Okay, ladies, next we will pray for his eyes. Not sure why God made men to be such visually stimulated creatures, but that is just the plain truth. Maybe it is to our advantage on those days when we are not looking our best so they can still see the beauty in the one they love & adore! Alright, I’ll take that!!!

In this day of HD TV, everything you can see on the internet, & women dressed provocatively on the street… our husbands need us to pray for their eyes. I see beauty in the world all around me that is good & for my husband to notice the beautiful things or people God has created that is good too. The problem comes when that is the only focus… when he is drawn in by such things, it sets him up to be discontented & dissatisfied with what he has lying next to him at home. Remember, it is not about us, so please don’t take it personally… it is about him letting his eyes wander to places he shouldn’t.

“The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure and bright, enlightening the eyes.” Psalms 19:8

We are not called to monitor our husband’s actions… we are called to pray for him to keep his eyes on what God has for him. Don’t spend your time pointing out every little thing you think he is doing wrong. Instead, invest your time praying for him… that he will have the willpower to look away from things that may tempt him & to keep his focus on the important things in his life.

They say the eyes are the window to the soul… well, if that is true then we need to be praying for our husbands’ “windows” to be opened to all God has for him, & that he will pull the shades on all that the enemy tries to distract him with.

Rejoicing in Truth!
