Please enjoy this podcast on your favorite podcast platform. Although efforts were made in editing, this transcript may include a few typos. It’s difficult to catch some minor errors. Enjoy!

My married Sisters-in-Christ and my soon to be married Sisters-in-Christ, it’s time to get bold and intentional about our men. Yep, this episode is about doing the most important thing we can to build up, sustain, and moving our husbands forward in Christ Jesus. Yes I’m talking about the spiritual discipline of intercessory prayer. And yet, it comes with Bible study and a passion to honor, as the Bible says, in Ephesians 5:33, “respect your husbands.”  

And before I go any further, this is about, you, the wife, not “you the wife trying to make your husband into what you want him to be.” Nope, that’s not this party.

So gather up your Bible, journal, pen, and a comfy place to take notes because I have 3 of my friends on this episode to help me share how best we can intercede for our husbands.

This is episode 31. Now, on to the intro….

Welcome to Hanging Out With Jesus Podcast where we equip and encourage you to spend more time with the Triune God through practicing the spiritual disciplines to help you let go of the noises, the clutter that hinders you from knowing who you are and whose you are in Christ Jesus.

Hi, I’m Lyvita Brooks, your host, author and blogger on a mission to equip the saints to do the work God’s called you to do and to build up the body of Christ until we all come into unity.

Now, come walk with me, where we intentionally practice being in the presence of God. So stop what you are doing. “Cause it’s time to Hang Out With Jesus, and me, Lyvita. Let’s pray…

3:30 – Prayer

4:30 – Well, Saints welcome. I hope I didn’t scare the men off. My Brothers-in-Christ, listen in because this maybe an episode you want to share with your wife, ladies that are about to be wives, or to help a sista’ out that’s dying to get married. Please keep listening. So let me get to the introductions.

5:20 – Introductions: Welcome Patricia Hooper, Jamie Coles Burnette and Kathryn Williams to Hanging Out With Jesus Podcast.

14:20 – Lyvita: I read an article from Marriage Today on How to honor and respect your husbands, in it, they, who is Jimmy and Karen Evans, state that honor and respect are the number-one need for men in which they can’t get by themselves.

I referenced Ephesians 5:33 in the beginning of the episode. Paul writes, “let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.” So FYI: This is not a talk about being submissive, that’s for another episode. No, today we are going to talk about honoring and respecting our husbands, your husband through interceding for him in prayer.

15:10 – Questions Discussed:

  • Ephesians 5: 33, says we are to respect our husbands, so what does that mean?
  • Why is interceding for your husband important?
  • Should we intercede for them in the area of their ethnicity?
  • Should a wife look at interceding for her husband a mission, a duty, or just something to do? Is it an honor and privilege to do for them, why?
  • Are there other scriptures about praying for your husband?
  • What are some ways that we should be intercede for our husbands? Should we tell him?
  • Is praying for an unsaved husband different than praying for a saved husband and if so how?
  • When should one start praying for their husband, after they get married or when they get engaged or even before that?
  • How do I pray for my husband when he is struggling with something? Ex, an addiction, sin, fears, anger or problem at work?
  • How can we help our husbands begin to pray with us?
  • How does praying for your husband impact your marriage? 

54:25 - Last thoughts, comments given by guest

Lyvita: Well, Saints, I hope we gave you something to chew up, pray about, and begin doing. So until we meet again over the airwaves, intentionally, and daily hang out with Jesus.

Everyone say: Shalom!
