Praying for my Husband

I have developed a prayer list to guide me in prayer for my husband over the next 30 days. I just finished reading The Power of a Praying Wife by Stormie Omartian, and used that as a guideline for coming up with some of these categories.

I'm printing this out and posting above my kitchen sink (where I spend a good deal of time) so that I can pray for him in these specific areas throughout my day. I'm excited to do this! :) Here's my list:

1 his wife, that I would be his helpmeet, companion, friend and support
2 his work
3 his sexuality
4 his affection
5 his temptations
6 his fears
7 his purpose
8 his health
9 his protection
10 his integrity
11 his reputation
12 his priorities
13 his relationships
14 his fatherhood
15 his relationship with Ella
16 his relationship with Isaac
17 his relationship with Isaias
18 our marriage
19 his faith
20 his time in the Word
21 his tongue/words
22 his repentance
23 his obedience
24 his future
25 his leadership
26 sharing the Gospel
27 his faithfulness
28 his prayers
29 his insecurities
30 his rest

Am I missing anything really obvious? Let me know if you see a glaring obmission!

    This makes me want to do the dishes more often, so I can look over this list myself and pray the same things for you, my dear wife.

    Thank you for your prayers.

    Finances. My friend pointed that one out to me. The reason I didn't think of it is because while Mark MAKES all the money, (thank you, honey!) I actually do most of the managing of our finances.

    Alrighty.

    My birthday gift to my husband was concentrated prayer and journaling on his behalf. Your list has been a huge help to me and came just at the right time. Thanks for sharing it!
