FEBRUARY DEVOTION: What Your Wife Needs from You by Natalie Burnett
Day 5 - Your wife needs prayer.
So many times, I take praying for granted. It’s such a terrible thing to overlook and not prioritize. I know that I need to be praying daily through the easy things, so that when the difficult things come my faith is built up and I feel the peace of Jesus in my heart.
Even though I have taken it for granted, I know that at the end of a difficult day, my husband will sit with me and go to Jesus on my behalf. When I’m desperate for peace or rest, his prayers can calm my heart and bring us to the presence of Jesus.
In Acts, the early church devoted themselves to “the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer” (verse 2:42). When you read through Acts 2, you see that amazing things were happening in the church. While a lot of things were going on, they were devoted in prayer. Amazing things happen in our marriages when we devote ourselves to times of prayer. The times that Jeremy and I have joined together and pressed through, we’ve seen Jesus move in our lives and in our marriage.
Jeremy sets an example in our family with his prayer life. He leads and challenges us to improve and move deeper. There will be days when you need your wife to carry you. There will be days when you will carry each other. There will be days when you carry her. Overall, what she needs is consistency and faithfulness from you. Press in with her. Go to the throne room for her.
