Revive Your Marriage: Revive Your Prayers


During September, I will be participating and linking up with the Revive Your Marriage Series hosted by Time-Warp Wife, To Love Honor and Vacuum, Women Living Well Ministries and Unveiled Wife.

And my husband and I will be celebrating our 11th Anniversary!


This weeks challenge is this:
Revive Your Prayers

I often prayer scripture over my husband.  Ephesians 3:14-19 is one of them.  How do you pray scripture over an individual, you ask.  I substitute Lee's name throughout the passage as I pray, like this...

For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant Lee, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in Lee's heart through faith; that Lee, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that Lee may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Will you participate?  If so, let me know by leaving a comment below.

Enjoying my life, Mary
