Praying for Your Pastor’s Wife – Day 31

Pray that your pastor’s wife will be humble and authentic in her faith, not given to pride
or hypocrisy. Pray that she will have pure motives and give God glory for every gain or
victory.

He has told you, O man, what is good;
And what does the LORD require of you
But to do justice, to love kindness,
And to walk humbly with your God?  Micah 6:8

But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.  Gal 6:14

If anyone is willing to do His will, he will know of the teaching, whether it is of God or whether I speak from Myself.  “He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but He who is seeking the glory of the One who sent Him, He is true, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.  John 7:17-18

Praying for Your Pastor’s Wife – Day 30

Pray that the Word will be her counselor, and that she will serve the Lord with gladness,
and encourage others to worship with a joyful, surrendered spirit.

To grant those who mourn in Zion,
Giving them a garland instead of ashes,
The oil of gladness instead of mourning,
The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting.
So they will be called oaks of righteousness,
The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.  Isaiah 61:3

Your testimonies also are my delight;
They are my counselors.  Psalm 119:24

Praying for Your Pastor’s Wife – Day 29

Pray that your pastor’s wife will be a woman of faith and passionate love for God, not
giving in to worries, fears, or an uptight and anxious spirit.

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love.  1 John 4:18

Trust in the LORD with all your heart 
And do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him, 
And He will make your paths straight.  Prov 3:5-6

Praying for Your Pastor’s Wife – Day 28

Pray that she will strive for personal excellence as a “Proverbs 31” woman, and will
believe God to accomplish His will in her as a virtuous woman.

An excellent wife, who can find? 
For her worth is far above jewels.
The heart of her husband trusts in her,
And he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.
She looks for wool and flax
And works with her hands in delight.
She is like merchant ships;
She brings her food from afar.
She rises also while it is still night
And gives food to her household
And portions to her maidens.
She considers a field and buys it;
From her earnings she plants a vineyard.
She girds herself with strength
And makes her arms strong.
She senses that her gain is good;
Her lamp does not go out at night.
She stretches out her hands to the distaff,
And her hands grasp the spindle.
She extends her hand to the poor,
And she stretches out her hands to the needy.
She is not afraid of the snow for her household,
For all her household are clothed with scarlet.
She makes coverings for herself;
Her clothing is fine linen and purple.
Her husband is known in the gates,
When he sits among the elders of the land.
She makes linen garments and sells them,
And supplies belts to the tradesmen.
Strength and dignity are her clothing,
And she smiles at the future.
She opens her mouth in wisdom,
And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
She looks well to the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and bless her;
Her husband also, and he praises her, saying:
“Many daughters have done nobly,
But you excel them all.”
Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain,
But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.
Give her the product of her hands,
And let her works praise her in the gates.  Prov 31:10-31

Praying for Your Pastor’s Wife – Day 27

Pray that she will earnestly seek God’s will and be committed to instant and complete
obedience—ready for God to work powerfully in and through her life and ministry.

Samuel said, “Has the LORD as much delight in burnt  offerings and sacrifices  as in obeying the voice of the LORD?   Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, 
And to heed than the fat of rams.  1 Sam 15:22

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.  We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, and we are ready to punish all disobedience, whenever your obedience is complete.  2 Cor 10:3-5

And Jesus was saying to them all, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me.  “For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake, he is the one who will save it.  Luke 9:23-24

Praying for Your Pastor’s Wife – Day 26

Pray that your pastor’s wife will think biblically—with the mind of Christ—and practice
the expression of her faith with boldness in places of influence.

For WHO HAS KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, THAT HE WILL INSTRUCT HIM? But we have the mind of Christ.  1 Cor 2:16

Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude.  See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.  Col 2:6-8

So this I say, and affirm together with the Lord, that you walk no longer just as the Gentiles also walk, in the futility of their mind, being darkened in their understanding, excluded from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardness of their heart; and they, having become callous, have given themselves over to sensuality for the practice of every kind of impurity with greediness.  But you did not learn Christ in this way, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus, that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.  Therefore, laying aside falsehood, SPEAK TRUTH EACH ONE of you WITH HIS NEIGHBOR, for we are members of one another.  Eph 4:17-25

I will also speak of Your testimonies before kings
And shall not be ashamed.  Psalm 119:46

Shepherd’s side, and that she learn the will and ways of God.

And My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.  2 Chron 7:14

Praying for Your Pastor’s Wife – Day 24

Pray that your pastor’s wife will be clothed with strength and dignity. Pray that she will
have a gentle and gracious spirit, and represent the Lord well as His ambassador.

Strength and dignity are her clothing,
And she smiles at the future.  Prov 31:25

Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.  2 Cor 5:20

Your adornment must not be merely external—braiding the hair, and wearing gold jewelry, or putting on dresses; but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God.  1 Pet 3:4-5

Praying for Your Pastor’s Wife – Day 23

Pray for spiritual unity between the pastor’s wife and others in the church—especially
other staff members’ wives. Pray that the enemy will not be allowed to create divisions,
strife, or misunderstanding in any way.

So then we pursue the things which make for peace and the building up of one another.  Rom 14:19

…so that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another.  1 Cor 12:25

Pray that she will serve others with God’s agape love and encourage them with His
wisdom and compassion.

For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.  Gal 5:13

Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.  Phil 2:3-4

She extends her hand to the poor,
And she stretches out her hands to the needy.  Prov 31:20
