The ladies are praying for the men today, again. They go to work and we choose to stay home. We are thankful for that opportunity so we ladies stay home, stoke the home fires, teach the children, are the default parent without a paying job. None of that is for the faint of heart, but we love our homes and what we do and for the most part don’t have to go into the world too often.
Our husbands do. So we pray God’s physical, mental and spiritual protection over them as they go out into the world. That they will put on the armor of God
10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
Life doesn’t seem that dire, but complacency is the Devil’s tool and can easily lead astray. So we pray our husbands are watchful.
