A woman who daily puts on compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience, and forgiveness is a woman everyone wants to be around. She lives out of the abundance she receives from the Lord. She loves with a divine sort of love that she lets flow freely through her. She prays out of a secure personal relationship with her Heavenly Father, fully confident that what He says is true. 

She is also a faithful prayer warrior for those God entrusted into her care. She prays salvation over an unsaved spouse, family members, and friends; strength for her close ones going through trials and illnesses; protection from sin and discord in all her relationships. She knows her prayers are heard and answered, and she surrenders her closest loved ones to the Lord who loves them even more than she.

Such a woman is worth knowing because God works and shines through her. Her husband lacks nothing of value because she is in his life (Proverbs 31:10). What a powerful statement about a wife, close friend, or sister! 

As a wife, you know it’s incredibly important to pray for your husband. But how often do you actually do this? Super convicting question I know, but I have another: how often do you pray for God to change something in your husband. Your husband provides, just as the Lord provides (Philippians 4:19), and shows you Christlike love (Ephesians 5:25). He reflects God by keeping his word (Deuteronomy 7:9), is kind, patient, and faithful (Galatians 5:22-23). By praying in this way, we not only give God thanks, but grow in gratitude and remind ourselves of God’s faithful character forever worthy of praise.
