The Bible has within its pages a path that we are to follow as husbands and wives and fathers and mothers. Elizabeth George teaches us what we can do as wives for our husbands as they walk each of these roles. Her knowledge of the Bible and her own experiences combine to give us this wonderful and insightful direction.
15 Verses to Pray for Your Husband sets before us a task to prayerfully place our husbands before God each day. Elizabeth George speaks of the various areas that our husbands could use our prayers such as spiritual growth, wisdom, acting with courage; his job and his role as a father. These areas are just as tough for our husbands as they are for us as wives. God placed them as the head of our family, a role with much stress and obligations. We can support them by raising them up in prayer and by doing so we keep our focus on them which allows us to have meaningful and blessed relationships. The author shows us how to use the scriptures in our prayers according to God’s design.
Although, the reasoning with this book is to provide prayer for “husbands”, I truly feel that it could also be used for fathers. There are many single mothers who may not have the husband role in their lives, but they have the father of their children to consider. Praying for parental wisdom, spiritual growth, and his role of father would be just as important in this situation. 15 Verses to Pray for Your Husband is a great book to learn how to focus on our husbands and to help them with their roles, but it is also a great resource for prayerfully considering fathers as well.
