Ask God to remind her of the hope and refuge God offers her each day. Pray that she
will be encouraged in God, knowing that He is a firm, secure anchor for her soul.

And why have you become disturbed within me?

Praying for Your Pastor’s Wife – Day 15

Pray that she will cooperate with her husband in providing godly leadership in their

Children, be obedient to your parents in all things, for this is well-pleasing to the Lord.   Fathers, do not exasperate your children, so that they will not lose heart.  Col 3:20-21

Pray that your pastor’s wife will focus on the Word of God and walk by faith in the fear of
the Lord—rather than the fear of man. Pray that she will not seek acceptance from
others or compare herself with them, but that she will discover true freedom in her
position in Christ.

The fear of the LORD leads to life, 

So that one may sleep satisfied, untouched by evil.  Prov 19:23

Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain,
But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.  Prov 31:30

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.  2 Tim 2:15

And I will walk at liberty,  For I seek Your precepts.  Ps 119:45

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.   In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace, which He lavished on us.  In all wisdom and insight He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth. In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ would be to the praise of His glory.  Eph 1:3-12

Praying for Your Pastor’s Wife-Day 13

Your pastor’s wife is a busy woman. Pray that she will make wise lifestyle choices in
order to protect her health, especially in the areas of exercise, eating moderately, and
getting sufficient rest. Pray for times of relaxation and renewal to balance the stress of
ministry.

Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.  And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.  Rom 12:1-2

Therefore I run in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not beating the air; but I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.  1 Cor 9:26-27

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?  For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.  1 Cor 6:19-20

She girds herself with strength
And makes her arms strong.  Prov 31:17

Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor enslaved to much wine, teaching what is good, so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored.  Titus 2:4-5
