Thirty Days of Prayer for My Husband – Day 18: His Emotional Health

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving emotions-menlet your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 4:6-7

Lord, I pray for my husband’s emotions. We know that, as we are created in your image, we have emotions as you do. I think back on the times when you were angry and how you handled each time with wisdom and justice. I pray that my Hubby would do the same. That when he feels anger, first he will ask you to show him the reality of the situation and where the anger comes from. Show him how to separate his anger from happenings around him and spiritual warfare. Teach him to control his anger toward others, but to focus his anger against Satan on his knees.

I pray for his love, tenderness and joy, that they will fill him to the brim. Show him things throughout the day that will bring these emotions to a smile on his face. Protect him from allowing sadness to lead to depression and from living in fear. These are each and every one a valuable part of my husband’s being, but I need you to show him what is constructive to his life and what is destructive.

Help my husband to recognize all of his emotions – both good and bad. If there is any emotional pain in his life, I pray God that you would bind up those wounds and what he would find help he needs to work through them. I pray that there will always be an open line of communication between us to discuss his feelings. And we give you all the praise, dear Lord.

Amen

Psalm 147:31
