April Scripture Prayer Calendars for Your Husband and for Your Wife

My husband and I just got back from Gatlinburg, Tennessee on Monday. We went back to the place where we honeymooned 20 years ago! Yes, that's right! We are celebrating 20 years of marriage on Wednesday, April 5th! To God be ALL the glory! We are so thankful for the hand of God that has been so evident in our marriage and in our lives.

We had so much fun together during our 3 day stay in Gatlinburg. Our cabin, Sugar Booger is its name, looked exactly the same as it did when we went there for our 10 year anniversary and even the same as 20 years ago when we honeymooned there! Nothing had changed! It was really hard to believe.

I'm so thankful the same CAN NOT be said for me or for my husband, Phil. We both have changed these last 20 years together. Sure, I'm not happy about the weight I've put on (wink!), but I am thankful I'm not the same woman I was spiritually 20 years ago. I'm thankful for the hard times of marriage (yes, let's be honest - marriage is hard at times) that have caused me to draw closer to God and ask Him for His help to mold me and shape me into the wife Phil needs me to be.

God has taught me so much over the years through my marriage:

Mercy
Grace
Forgiveness
Agape Love
Patience
Kindness
Gentleness
Self Control

And so much more! All of these beautiful characteristics of God have been made alive in me through the power of the Holy Spirit at work in my life. It's a choice every wife and every husband have to make in their marriage. I'm thankful to have been blessed with a husband who has made that choice to grow in God and allow the power of the Holy Spirit to work in his life as well. It really does make a difference in marriage. Encourage your spouse and their relationship with God. Help keep them accountable (in a loving way of course) to be in the Bible and to pray every day. Read the Bible and pray TOGETHER every day. It's Living Water for your marriage.

As I look back over these past 20 years, I'm so thankful for all of God's blessings that we have enjoyed! So many good memories with our children and extended family. There are even painful memories like the loss of our first child at 6 weeks into my pregnancy, the loss of both of my grandmothers, a sister, and both of my parents. God has been with us through it ALL. And I know He will continue to be with us as we grow old together.

Marriage is under attack from Satan. I think we all know and understand that. Therefore we have to take a stand for our marriages by coming against our enemy through the power of prayer! I'll never forget the day God spoke into my heart about the importance of praying for Phil. I wrote a blog post about this called The One Realization That Has Totally Changed My Marriage. I'll be sharing that with you soon so stay tuned!

March Scripture Prayer Calendars for Your Husband and for Your Wife

I've been so excited to share the March Scripture Prayer Calendars with you all! I've had this idea of what Scriptures to use for this month's prayer calendars since February 4. It's a theme that God continued to put in my path for several days.

This month I'm excited to announce our prayer calendars will focus on Praying the Promises of God for Your Marriage!

My husband read a verse of Scripture at our church's prayer meeting on the last Wednesday night of January. It was Psalm 91:4. I've heard this verse many times, but this time something happened. As soon as he read this verse, my heart quickened as the truth of God's Word filled my heart.

Praying the Promises of God for Your Marriage

The words "His faithful promises are your armor and protection" resonated in my heart. We can PUT ON (as armor and protection) God's promises! So when the enemy comes (and he will) we can stand on the promises of God and speak those promises over whatever the enemy tries to throw against us! Friends this is an exciting revelation to me!! Praise God for His promises!

For this month's Marriage Prayer Calendars, I've picked Scripture verses that focus on God's promises for our husband (and for us as wives that our husband can pray over us).

Let's PUT ON God's Promises for our husband! And be encouraged to know that your husband will be praying the same for YOU!

Let me tell you it's been one obstacle after another to get these calendars ready this month! I told you last month that I had to get a new laptop. Well for some reason I can't get into Microsoft Publisher like I was able to last month to make the calendars. So after fumbling around trying to figure out why, I finally resorted to Microsoft Word and found a calendar template. So I had to reformat everything onto this new template. Phew! I was determined to get these calendars to you on time for March! lol

I hope you are as excited as I am about this revelation of God's Word in Psalm 91:4 and our focus of praying God's promises over our husband and them praying the same over us! Let me know by leaving me a quick comment below!

January Scripture Prayer Calendars for Your Husband and for Your Wife

Happy New Year friends! Welcome to a fresh start in 2017!

I want to apologize for not getting the December prayer calendars posted here on the blog. It was such a busy time and I just never got around to posting them here. I heard from a couple of you who were looking for them, so I just wanted you to know I'm sorry I let that slip.

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas! We did here. Lots of fun and laughter. My daughter and son-in-love had a very exciting announcement about a week before Christmas! They are expecting their 2nd child! I cannot wait to meet our new grandbaby in July! Maybe he/she will be born on my birthday (July 3)!

Do you choose a word for the New Year? I have in years past. I was considering not picking a word for this year, but today I decided I would because a word came to mind immediately as I was thinking over the events of 2016.

My family went through a lot in 2016, especially at the very beginning when my husband fell off a ladder at our church as he was taking down garland from our sanctuary. The months of recovery that followed were some of the hardest times we've walked through in our marriage. It was also some of the most intimate moments of experiencing God in ways that we wouldn't have otherwise. For that I am grateful. If you've been a reader here for a while, you know that I pick an ornament for our Christmas tree that depicts how we have experienced God throughout the year. Due to all that we endured in 2016 with the help of God, I knew that I wanted to have an ornament that referenced the passage in the Bible of the Great I Am. It was impossible to pick just one way we experienced God in 2016 because he was "the Great I Am" in so many different circumstances that we walked through in 2016. I typed up a little something and cut it out to put in an ornament that I found at WalMart. Here's a picture of it:

Christmas Ornament

So back to my word for 2017. I've picked "VICTORIOUS" because no matter what 2017 holds for my family, I know that we can be VICTORIOUS because the Lord goes before us.

The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.  
 -Deuteronomy 31:8

November Scripture Prayer Calendar for Your Husband and for Your Wife

How did we get to the month of November this fast?! It's hard to believe we only have this month and December left in the year 2016. I hope this year has been a year of growth for you, your spouse, and your marriage.

November is a time to focus on all that we have to be thankful for. As I think back over this year, I'm reminded of all the ways I am thankful to God for all He has done in the various situations we've had to walk through this year. One situation that comes to mind is my husband's accident in which he fell off of a ladder at our church while taking down Christmas decorations in January that resulted in an acute concussion. God spared his life and healed him completely. It was a painful and lengthy recovery period, but God was faithful to answer our cries for help and healing. That's just one of many instances that come to my mind as I think back over this past year. My family truly has so much to be thankful for. I hope you'll find some time in which to think about all that you are thankful for as we head into the Thanksgiving holiday.

Let me take the time now to wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Here are the Scripture Prayer Calendars for the month of November. Simply click on the images below to download your free marriage prayer calendar.
