Today’s prayer for my husband is something that is SUPER important to me! Without shaming myself, I am shocked I haven’t been thoughtful enough to be consistently praying this for him!
It is the topic of: Worth and Identity!
In this world I feel like we can really be tempted to think less of ourselves, that we are not good enough, that we are unworthy of the callings and positions God has placed us in. I know I struggle with this but I honestly think the pressures on our husbands can REALLY cause them to be greater tempted by this worlds opinion. I am so proud of my husband and I pray that he will not be discouraged by what the world thinks he worth is but that he will find his worth and identity in GOD.
My hearts cry is that his identity and worth in God would be GREATER then the identity in we find in the world.
Genesis 1:27 – We are created in God’s image. Our value began at the hand of the creator, and He values us so much he created us to be in HIS IMAGE.
Romans 5:8 – He sent his son to die for us while we were still sinners. Our worth is so great to God that he sent his ONLY son to die for us before we ever repented.
Isaiah 49:15 – We are cherished by God. The world, our friends, even our family might not see our worth, BUT GOD DOES and says I WILL NOT FORGET YOU!
Jeremiah 29:11 – He has a plan for us. God has GREAT plans for us, and he dreams with us, guiding us to our purpose.
Jeremiah 31:3 – He loves with an everlasting love. He is relentless in His pursuit of us.
1 John 3:1 – We are Children of God. Our Father God considers us His very own precious child.
The Bible is full of our true identity, our calling, our worth. Let us not be tempted or weighed down by the pressures of the world for we are made for greater things!
Lord, I pray when my husband is tempted to think less of himself that he will let his identity in YOU become greater than his identity in the world. You have created us, and called us Your own! Thank you that our worth is far greater then we can even imagine, let us rest in that!
Join me in praying for those in our lives that need to not be tempted by the worlds definition of worth but that they will find their identity in Christ!
