The Power & Purpose of Prayer
The Word on my heart today is to encourage Women in their purpose of prayer. The key topic for today: Focusses on Praying for Your Husband. Through prayer; we; as wives have the power to open up the floodgates of heaven on behalf of our husbands. Some of us may not have a husband and may be praying for a husband; for some- it is that your husband would follow Christ whole-heartedly and have a closer relationship with Him. Whatever the case, many are the prayers on our heart for the man we are praying for. No matter where things stand, be encouraged to pray in faith as—
Hebrews 11:1 says: “Pray with the ASSURANCE of things hoped for, the CONVICTION of things not seen.”
A Position of Prayer
Women; we have been given a position of prayer!
Our position as women and wives is as a Prayer Warrior,
the power and purpose of intercession
and the promises of persistent prayer.
“In the beginning: God created the Heavens and the earth.”
It all started in the beginning; with the first married couple-Adam and Eve.
God creates man, formed him and breathed life into his lungs.
God saw that the man was alone, and decided, “It is not good for the man to be alone.”
God declared, “I will make a helper suitable for him.”
God fashioned His final masterpiece, the crowning touch of His creation.
The word God used in His creative masterpiece; is helper. Genesis 2:18 says, “I will make a helper suitable for him.” The Hebrew word translated as “helper” in reference to the woman is ezer. It is derived from a Hebrew word used of God and the Holy Spirit: azar. Both mean “helper”—One who comes alongside to aid, assist, or rescue. One translation says, the “helper” is one who supplies strength in the area that is lacking in “the helped.”
God said it was not good for the man (Adam) to be alone; so He formed Eve as his ezer. God designed the man and the woman, husband and wife, to stand together and help each other fight the battles of life. God is there with you, He stands with you as a Divine ezer—to fight with you!
The Woman You Are ~ Proverbs 31
An excellent wife, who can find? “her worth is far above jewels.”
You are a: “wife (woman) of noble character.” “Capable, intelligent, and virtuous woman.” This means in the Hebrew: “wealthy, prosperous, valiant, boldly courageous, powerful, mighty warrior.”
God has called you, “Woman of God” to be A Mighty Warrior, to Pray and stand alongside your Husband and to stand with him in strength and support.
“He did not create woman simply because man was lonely—He fashioned woman to complete man—to LOVE with him, work with him, rule with him (not rule him), to LIVE life with him, to procreate with him, and to FIGHT alongside him.”
Woman was and is a WARRIOR called to fight alongside man in battle; not with weapons, but on her knees in prayer! God has given us an amazing role as a prayer warrior on our husband’s behalf.
Be encouraged to enter into Spiritual battle armed & ready with the Word of God:
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then! —with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of FAITH, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And PRAY in the Spirit in ALL occasions.… Be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
There is a battle going on around us! The word of God encourages us to be PREPARED, spiritually armed and physically alert. We hold the authority over the enemy who seeks to harm the husbands. Through prayer we intercept the enemies plans: we disarm and dismantle the enemy from his plans and tactics against us. Principalities and authorities are defeated. Through prayer, the power and provision of God; flow into our lives. (Luke 10:19)
Women, stand today knowing that God has uniquely fashioned, formed, and created you! He has supernaturally EQUIPPED and EMPOWERED you to do battle on your knees for your marriage and your man. Remember, that marriage between a woman and a man is an earthly example of a heavenly relationship between Christ and the Church (Ephesians 5:22-23).
So take heart! God has given you the power and authority to “overcome all the power of the enemy.” The greater one lives in you! (1 John 4:4)
You are an ezer! You are A CREATIVE MASTERPIECE!
