Husband Prayers: Day 6

It is day 6 of our Husband Prayers Challenge. How is it going?

Day 6: Praying for His Temptations

Dear God, please don’t lead my husband into temptation, and deliver him from the evil one (Matt 6:13). I know that his temptations are common to all men, but Lord, you are faithful. Please don’t let him be tempted beyond what he can bare. When he is tempted, show him the way out so that he can stand up under it (I Cor 10:13).

Help my husband to walk properly, not in revelry, drunkenness, lewdness, lust, strife, and envy. Keep him from adultery, fornication, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, and the like. But I ask that you show him how to put on you, Lord Jesus, so he will not fulfill his lusts and give into his flesh (Gal 5:19-21, Rom 13:13-14).  I know that my husband is especially tempted in this area:  _________. Please give him victory over that today. As temptations and trials come his way, help him persevere in the strength you provide (James 1:12). 

“I strive always to keep my conscience clear before God and man.”   
Acts 24:16

“For we are taking pains to do what is right not only in the eyes of the Lord, but also in the eyes of men.” 
 2 Corinthians 8:21
