Praying for Our Husbands (part 5)

Day 5… praying for your husband’s neck… the connecting point from the head to the rest of the body. The mind, eyes, ears & mouth… those parts might be the leading force in this, but the neck makes the choice. Literally & figuratively, the neck turns the head… will it turn to something not so good or will it keep focused straight ahead on God’s plan?

Our husbands on a daily basis have so many decisions thrown at them, some serious & some not so serious… push the snooze one more time & possibly be late, take the time to eat breakfast or grab a donut at work, have lunch with a friend or work through lunch to get out of work on time, spend family time or hide out in front of the TV.

“Finally, brothers & sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” Philippians 4:8

From creation God gave us the gift of choice. As a loving Father, He wanted us to choose to love Him & follow Him… if He forced us to do that than that wouldn’t be love… would it? Choosing to follow God’s plan or choosing to follow a self-centered plan… hmm, not much of a choice when it’s put like that! Another way to look at it… living in peace or living in stress & turmoil.

I know that when I am stressed the first place I feel it is in my neck, it always feels great to have it rubbed. So, ladies, as the opportunity arises, lay hands on your husband & pray for his neck… give it a little rub… he will wonder what he did to deserve such nice attention! Keep him guessing! *Ü*

As you pray for his neck, ask God to help him make the right choices throughout the day. Ask Father to turn his head towards the good things He has for him with benefits for eternity & away from self-centered choices where he will never find fulfillment.

Keep going, ladies… you are making a difference!

Rejoicing in Truth!
