Prayers for my husband~his work.

A few weeks ago I shared about how I never prayed for my husband and how I wanted that to change.....
(prayer taken from "The power of a praying wife" by Stormie Omartian)

Lord, I pray that You would bless the work of my husband's hands. May his labor bring not only favor, success, and prosperity, but great fulfillment as well. If the work he is doing is not in line with Your perfect will for his life, reveal it to him.

Give him strength, faith and a vision for the future so he can rise above any propensity for laziness. Help him to see that he doesn't have to work himself to death for man's approval, or grasp for gain beyond what is a gift from You. Give him the ability to enjoy his success without striving for more. Help him to excel, but free him from the pressure to do so.

I pray that You will be Lord over his work, and may he bring You into every aspect of it. Give him enough confidence in the gifts You've place in him to be able to seek, find and do good work. Open up doors of opportunity for him that no man can close. Develop his skills so that they grow more valuable with each passing year. Show me what I can do to encourage him.

I pray that his work will be established, secure, successful, satisfying, and financially rewarding. Let him be like a tree planted by the stream of Your living water, which brings forth fruit in due season. May he never wither under pressure, but grow strong and prosper."

"Let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us,
and establish the work of our hands for us;
yes, establish the work of our hands."

Psalm 90:17

Janelle, I so enjoy your posts. This one so closely applies to all that is going on in our life right now! My husband is such a hardworker... and there have been times that his love for working has become a conflict of interests in our household... but here we are JOBLESS and basically at square one! It is such a blessing, often one easily overlooked, to have a hardworking husband with a rewarding job. The "balancing act" is important but a godly man providing for his family is such a blessing!!
