Prayer is at the core of your victorious living. Seems to me folks take prayer cavalierly. It’s become less formal and not very sacred in the lives of contemporary Christians. It’s more like something you do whenever you can or while you’re doing something else. That’s why I think I am writing this post on prayer points for pastors’ wives.
Hey, praying while driving is ok. It’s fine to pray when you shop, but there is something magical about time alone with the Lord. Special time set aside and protected for fellowship with Jesus is precious. It’s where intimacy is created. It’s where you get direction. It’s where your weakened spirit is strengthened. Does that make sense?
Prayer Point 1:
Personal strength and resilience
In this role, you must be resilient. You have to be able to bounce back from disappointment and recover from offense. You can’t be burdened with hurt feelings or disillusionment. Your Kingdom work is far too important for that! So, ask God to strengthen you in your inner man. Then, pray for a forgiving heart. Being offended is like a snare. It traps you in the past and compromises God’s current anointing on your life. You don’t have time for that!
Scripture:” I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being…” Ephesians 3:16
Prayer Point 2:
I am often guilty of not taking very good care of myself. Eating right is rarely a priority and it takes it toll on my body. Honestly, I don’t think I never really knew how to take care of my body properly. Maybe I knew mentally, but I never really embodied the theory as a lifestyle. So, I’m praying more and more for the wisdom to care for my physical being. I’m asking God to strengthen my hands for the work He wants me to accomplish. It’s working too. Little by little, I’m learning the negative effects sugar, fats and artificial foods have on me. I’m regularly opting for more veggies and fruits. Hey, the enemy wants to count you out. He knows if you suffer, it affects your husband and his mission. It affects your family too. Pray for strength in this area.
Scripture: “They were all trying to frighten us, thinking, “Their hands will get too weak for the work, and it will not be completed.” But I prayed, “Now strengthen my hands.” Nehemiah 6:9
Prayer Point 3:
Girl, you know where I’m going here. Ask God to give insight into what lies beneath the surfaces of life. My husband often asks my opinion on issues because he knows God has given me discernment. Sometimes, men don’t see the whole of things. I think it’s because they often lean toward logic over emotion. This is not a bad thing, but it can be a barrier to seeing what is occurring right in front of you. You’re his helper; his spiritual partner. Ask God to help you see the snares of the enemy so you can intercede.
Scripture: “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Isaiah 30:21
Prayer Point 4:
One of my favorite stories is when Solomon asked for wisdom over anything else. With wisdom you can accomplish exploits! Ask God to give you wisdom when to move and when to stop. Ask Him to show you when to speak and when to remain silent. He will. Ask Him for wisdom to minister to His people. Pray for knowledge about what your husband and family needs at various times and seasons of life. Ask and you shall receive. Seek and you shall find. That’s a promise.
Scripture: “For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.” Proverbs 2:6
Prayer Point 5:
This one like a weird prayer point for the pastor’s wife because Jesus gave us victory on the cross, right? Sure, He did and praise God for it! Here, I’m thinking more on a micro level. Ask God for personal victory in your own life. Ask Him to deliver you and free you from jealousy, insecurity, fear, doubt and any other barriers that keep you from living your fullest, most productive life.
Scripture: “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:36
