Why You Should Pray Over Yourself As A Wife
Being a wife requires having to fulfill a lot of roles including sustaining a spiritual life, work, and a personal life.
Sometimes, we can find ourselves getting drowned in so many different tasks that requires us to be selfless which, oftentimes, may cause us to neglect ourselves.
And, we can become so focus-driven on our husbands changing (to the way that we have envisioned him) that we can neglect the fact that we, ourselves, are also human. Sometimes, the problem can actually be us rather than him (bummer…self-reflection time 😫).
So, it’s important that we don’t forget to guard our own hearts (for what comes out of it are the issues of life) and to cast down thoughts that are not of the Spirit of God (if, and when they come to us) so that we don’t find ourselves trying to constantly take the beam out of someone else’s eyes (our husbands!) when we should ACTUALLY be focusing on removing it out of our own eyes.
With that being said, I’ve compiled a list of 15 scriptures that women should pray over themselves as a wife (definitely prayers that you should give your hubby to pray over you, too!).
So, let’s dive in to it!
