31 Days of Prayer for your Spouse {Day 13 :: Serve}

Serve

“And he sat down and called the twelve. And he said to them, ‘If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.’”

Mark 9:35 (ESV)

  As married couples we serve each other in many ways all the time. But sometimes we are called to step out of our comfort zone and usual ways of serving to a plan we didn’t expect. About 12 years ago I had a re-injury to my back that landed me in bed the better part of 7 weeks. Without complaint my husband took care of our grown son with special needs, was working full time, helped with our daughters and their needs, cooked, cleaned, and did the laundry. The most impressive thing? It was without complaint.   We need to appreciate all the small acts of service along with the bigger ones that happen from time to time….   Let’s pray for our spouse as we thank the Lord for all the ways they serve us. Consider the many small ways your spouse serves you. List them in your mind and give thanks for each one. And if the thoughts keep coming…keep praying and giving thanks. If there is little you can think of for which to give thanks, spend the next few days “looking” for ways you’ve overlooked your spouse serving you. Then thank them verbally and the Lord in prayer.   31 Days of Prayer for your Spouse
