I Promise to be True to You...

A Wednesday Fast and Prayer for our Husbands...

A dear friend of mine invited me to join her in a Wednesday fast and prayer for our husbands.  She then mentioned how powerful it could be if we invited other women into a prayer group for our husbands. 

The vocation of husband is a vital vocation with such responsibility; so much rests on our husband's shoulders and God has entrusted our souls under his loving care, to lead us back to Him in an eternal family.

Our children will do what our husbands do.

Our husbands are called to set and sustain a life of virtue in our homes.

Our culture is constantly trying to degrate, undermine, and devalue their role. There is temptation around every corner. Let's lift them up, through grace and love... for love of God, our husbands, and our families.

Let's lift our husbands up in prayer and fasting, every Wednesday. If our husbands grow in holiness, our entire family will grow in holiness. If our family grows in holiness, think of the impact on our neighborhood, our city, state, nation, and world!

As Blessed Mother Teresa said, so perfectly:
Never worry about numbers.
Help one person at a time,
And always start with the person nearest you."
Remember that fasting is personal, and looks different for each of us, perhaps it is a fast from coffee, sweets, 1 or 2 meals, etc.

St. Joseph, please pray for our husbands! Lift them up, guide them, inspire them. Draw them closer to our Heavenly Father, that they, in turn, may draw us closer to Him. KMS

Each of us plays a distinct role in our marriages.  Our husband is the head of our household, and we are the heart of our home.
“…and be subject to one another in the fear of Christ. Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her… So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself”  Ephesians 5:21-33

Our husband is a channel of grace for our entire household.  When we are called to honor and obey our husbands as the head of our home, who are we really obeying?
“Every [a]person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.” 
God is the true head, and he has placed our husbands, here on earth, as His representative for our homes. Romans 13:11
