Strength in the face of Adversity:
Every day for the rest of his life, the man of your dreams will face adversity. As future wives, of course if we could stop adversity from coming into his life, we all would, but that is not possible. The key point here is not to pray that adversity will not enter his life, but that he handles it through the strength and power of the Holy Spirit, and not through his own strength and power. The Lord allows us to face trials to strengthen us, so trials are inevitable, but they are also for our good. If he will give the Lord these trying times the Lord will grow and mature him through them.
Today I ask that you give my future husband strength in the face of adversity. Father adversity can not be avoided. We all need to be guided by the strength of the Holy Spirit to stand strong. Lord, we know that as we live our lives obediently and faithfully to you that Satan will bring us into times of temptation and adversity. Lord we also know that you will test us in situations to prove our faith true, and to show the level of our obedience. Father we know that these times are bound to come in the lives of our future husbands and so Lord, I pray that you would nail down his convictions so that he can stand strong for you. Lord allow him to know exactly where he stands on situations, and how to respond to these tests and trials bibically.
Father, remind him of his battle armor that you have given him. Help him to fight with the tools you have put in his power to use, the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the belt of truth, the sword of the spirit the gospel of peace, and the shield of faith. Help him to wake up every morning and
I pray that he would be rooted in the word and would be able to rise up in defense of his faith, you, himself, his convictions, and his family. Lord I pray that he would know his weaknesses and keep himself out of situations that would prove to be tempting. I pray that he would not stumble, falter, or cower in the face of trials and tribulations. Father I pray that you would strengthen his heart, that you would grow him daily in scripture, and allow him to memorize it so that your word will come quickly to his mind in times of temptation. Just as Jesus used your word to disarm the Devil, Lord, teach him to do the same. Father give him the strength to stand for what is right and stand firm against the enemies. Lord let there not be grey areas in his life that will cause him confusion in his life.
I ask that you would refine him like gold through trials, but that you would protect him as you did Job that not a hair on his head would be touched. Father I pray that when the season of testing is over or in a respite, Father I pray that you would give him rest in your arms and in your perfect peace. Love on him today. Help him to feel your presence Help him in his struggles and all he faces. Give him extra love today in his walk with you, and let him feel you . Lord today let him soar on wings like eagles.
In Jesus name I pray-
