31 Days of Praying For Our Husbands - Day 11

Lord, I pray that my husband will yield his manly desires to You and practice self control.  I pray our intimacy together will be fresh, positive and a reflection of selfless love.

"Drink water from your own well - share your love only with your wife. Let your wife be a fountain of blessing for you. Rejoice in the wife of your youth" Proverbs 5:15, 18

"I am my lover's and he claims me as his own." Song of Solomon 7:10

Today's tip: In the days of young children and stressful jobs- it is so important to slow down and make a date.  With 5 children we often are unable to actually go out on a date.  So, we have a home date (what I call it) I feed the kids earlier than usual, get the younger ones in bed and allow the older kids to be in their rooms until their bedtime.  I make a nice dinner for us to share.  Light some candles, play music...make it a stress free zone.  We have agreed certain topics are off limits - children, work, finances.  Sometimes we watch a movie, sometimes we just talk. It is nice to put aside time to just sit next to each other and even hold hands!  We both look forward to this time together!
