Today, I choose to pray over my husband from your Word, specifically 1 Timothy 6.
Thank you for giving Jeremy steady employment for all our years of marriage. Specifically, thank you for Alro Steel. Continue to bless Alro, and use it for Your Glory. Thank you that Jeremy’s direct boss is a believer, as well as, some of His co-workers. Help Jeremy show them and all those he works for and with the respect that You require. Especially, Help him serve them, that believe, even better because they are dear brothers to him through Christ and are devoted to the care of the body of believers.
Help Jeremy teach our children, by example, sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and give him godly teaching. Keep him from conceit and empty ideas. Do not let him have an unhealthy interest in controversies and quarrels about words that result in envy, strife, malicious talk, evil suspicions and constant friction between people of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.
Instead let him find godliness with contentment as great gain. Remind him brought we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we aught to be content with that. Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. Keep Jeremy from falling into these temptations and traps, and lies.
Make him a man of God, who flees from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Help him fight the good fight of the faith, and take hold of the eternal life to which he is called when he made his good confession in the presence of many witnesses. In the sight of God, who gives life to everything, and of Christ Jesus, who while testifying before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, you charge him to keep this command without spot or blame until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which You will bring about in Your own time—God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To You be honor and might forever.
Lord you command that those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in You alone, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. You command us to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way we will lay up treasure for ourselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that we may take hold of the life that is truly life. Help Jeremy and I be generous beyond measure.
Father, Help Jeremy, guard what has been entrusted to his care, and turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge, 21 which some have professed and in so doing have departed from the faith. Fill him with your grace and compassion always for all.
In Yeshua’s Name,
6 Let as many bondservants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honor, so that the name of God and His doctrine may not be blasphemed. 2 And those who have believing masters, let them not despise them because they are brethren, but rather serve them because those who are benefited are believers and beloved. Teach and exhort these things.
3 If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the [a]doctrine which accords with godliness, 4 he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, 5 [b]useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. [c]From such withdraw yourself.
6 Now godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into this world, [d]and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8 And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content. 9 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
11 But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 13 I urge you in the sight of God who gives life to all things, and before Christ Jesus who witnessed the good confession before Pontius Pilate, 14 that you keep this commandment without spot, blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ’s appearing, 15 which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only [e]Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords, 16 who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.
17 Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. 18 Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share, 19 storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
20 O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and [f]idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge— 21 by professing it some have strayed concerning the faith.
Grace be with you. Amen.
