Praying for Strength

The ministry year kicks off here at Trinity in a few weeks with lots of exciting new opportunities on the horizon. I'm so eager to see what God has in store for us and for our Trinity family. This is an essential time to be praying for my man and for me to continue to Unself.  I would like to invite you to join in and pray for your hubby or some other significant man in your life as the Lord prompts. I am using this book to guide us in praying the Word together.
God, in accordance with Your Word...
I pray that my husband shall wait on You, Lord, and that he shall renew his strength. I pray that he shall mount up with wings like eagles, that he shall run and not be weary, and that he shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31)
I pray that my husband will fear not, for you are with him. I pray that he will not be dismayed, for You are his God. I pray that You will strengthen him and help him and that You will uphold him with You righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10)
I pray that You Lord, are my husband's rock and his fortress and his deliverer; his God, his strength, in whom he will trust; his shield and the horn of his salvation, his stronghold. I pray that he will call upon You, Lord, who are worthy to be praised; so shall he be saved from his enemies. (Psalm 18:2-3)
I pray that You, Lord are my husband's light and his salvation, and that You are the strength of his life. (Psalm 27:1)
I pray, God, that You will strengthen my husband according to Your word. (Psalm 119:28)
I pray that my husband can do all things through Christ who strengthens him. (Philippians 4:13)
I pray that my husband will be strong in You, Lord, and in the power of Your might, I pray that he will put on the whole armor of God, that he may be able to stand against the the wiles of the devil. For he does not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:10-12)
I pray that my husband will take up Your whole armor, God, that he may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand, I pray that he will stand therefore, having girded his waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod his feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which he will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. I pray also that he will take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying always with all prayer and supplication in the spirit. (Ephesians 6:13-18)

Jesus, may my hubby know that Your grace is sufficient for him and that your power is made perfect in weakness. May my hubby boast all the more gladly of his weakness, so that the power of Christ may rest upon him. For the sake of Christ then, may he be content with weakness, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when my hubby is weak, then he is strong. (2 Corinthians 12: 9-10)

Thank you God for your faithfulness to continue what you have started in my man.  In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
