Husband Prayers: Day 16

Day 16: Praying for His Priorities

Lord, You tell us very clearly what our priorities should be:  We need to seek first Your Kingdom and Your righteousness.  If his priorities do not line up with your will, please work on his heart to adjust them accordingly.  If he is putting anything else before his relationship with You - money, work, sleep, family, projects, hobbies, (fill in the blank) – please show Him.   

You are very clear that He can not serve two things at once.  He will love one and hate the other.  Lord, I want my husband to be madly in love with You!  I want Him to have a passion for You and Your Kingdom.  I want Him to be storing up treasures in Heaven, rather than on earth.  God, please continue to develop my husband into a man after Your heart, who worships You, Lord God, and serves You only.  You promise that if he indeed seeks Your Kingdom first, then the You will take care of the rest.  Open His eyes, Lord, and help him fall before Your throne daily and offer himself to You.

Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.  Matthew 6:33

No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other.
Matthew 6:24

You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only shall you serve.
Matthew 4:10
