A husband's prayers for his wife don't have to be long and detailed. Short and to-the-point prayers are also powerful. That's because God has given the husband authority in the spirit realm that is unequaled. Whether or not his prayers are answered, however, depends on how that authority is handled.

God impressed upon my heart that, if I would be willing to lay down my life in prayer for Michael, He would use me to help Michael become all God had made him to be.

"It's not a matter of who needs to change, it's a matter of who is willing to change. If you're willing to change, I can work through you right now."

"I believe that if my father had covered us spiritually the way he should have, things would have been very different for our whole family," This realization has been instrumental in helping Michael to see the importance of praying for his own family. It has motivated him to pray for me. And I know I owe much of the success of my life to his prayers.

When we humble ourselves before God and let Him control us, then He can work through us. God wants to work through you as an instrument of His power as you intercede for your wife.

The power in your prayer is God's. When you pray for your wife, you are inviting God to exercise His power in her life. Your prayer enables her to better hear God's voice and respond to God's leading.

God wants us to pray about all things, but He wants us to pray according to His will. That's why it's important to ask God to reveal His will to you and help you pray accordingly. Once you have the mind of God as to how to pray, it's easier to pray fervently and persistently.

Your spiritual authority with regard to your wife and family is unequaled. Because your spiritual authority comes from God, it must be used the way God intended. It must be motivated by His love and have His glory in mind. All God-given spiritual authority has as its foundation a humility that desires to serve God more than to control others.

Whatever you don't pray about in your life you leave up to chance. And that's not good enough when it comes to your marriage.
