Praying God’s Word: Week 9


Week 8 Snippet: {February 21-27}
Topic: Our Marriage

Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Ephesians 5:21

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.  1 Corinthians 13:4-8

What God taught me:
That this isn’t easy. All week, there seemed to be things that made submitting difficult. But, thankfully, when I’d get like I sometimes get, God would bring these amazing verses to my heart. He was constantly reminding me at how I glorify not only my husband, but HIM, when I submit…and I also glorify Him when I’m protecting, trusting, keeping no record of wrongs, not easily getting angry, not being rude, and thinking about him over myself.

Up next: Week 9: {February 28-March 6}
Topic: My boys’ friends

One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24
