Day 29 A Hunger for the Word (40 Prayers for my Husband)40 days of Prayers for my Husband . Biblical Marriage
Today’s focus is on a deep love and desire for God’s Word. For as long as I can remember this has been a prayer that the Spirit placed on my heart for myself, and then for my children. I remember when I was pregnant with my oldest daughter, I would pray that she would have a hunger and thirst for God’s Word that would never be quenched, so that all the days of her life she would go to it for nourishment. This is still the prayer of my heart for myself, my husband, and children.
Psalms 119 is one of my favorite Psalms. I read a section of it every week as a prayer with my children. Today, is a good day to remind ourselves that when we pray scripture or use scripture in our prayers, we are not “naming and claiming.” This idea of naming something in prayer and claiming it is not what God intended for His children to do when He said, “Ask and it will be given unto you,” or “You have not because you ask not.” This is a false doctrine. Yehovah, our Creator and Redeemer, wants us to come to Him with all our needs, goals, dreams, and hopes. But, He is Holy, Pure, Righteous, and Just. He can not give us anything that will not be according to His perfect character. So, when we pray, He answers according to His perfect will. Not our selfish nature.
Rather, when we pray scripture and use it as a model for our prayers, we are aligning our will with His. We are seeking to use scripture as our guide in prayer, so that we will center our lives on truth and holiness. I realize that sometimes the passages we are praying may have a different contextual meaning than what I am choosing to use the words in prayer. There is nothing wrong with this as long as we recognize that God’s Word is alive and active, and He answers the prayers of His righteous children, who know Yeshua as the Messiah, and Torah as the Way of life.
So, today I pray for my spouse to desire to know and live God’s Word every day.
Thank you for Your Word. Thank you for amazing access we have to it day and night. I pray we would never take for granted the gift of Your Word.
Today, I pray for Jeremy that he would hunger and thirst for Your Word. That he would desire it more than silver or gold, or any other worldly riches.
I pray that His heart would cry out, “Oh, how I love Your law! Oh, Yehovah! Give him a desire to meditate on it all day long. Teach him that Your commands make him wiser than his enemies, for they are ever with me. As he studies Your Word give him more insight than all his teachers, for he meditate on your statutes. Give Him more understanding than the elders, for he obey Your precepts. Keep his feet from every evil path so that he might obey Your word. Let him not depart from Your laws, for You Yourself have taught them to him.
How sweet are Your words to our taste, sweeter than honey to our mouth! Let us gain understanding from Your precepts; so that we will hate every wrong path.
Bless us as we daily seek You in Your Word, and make us a blessing to others.

Things to know as you visit our site
We are Bible believing, scripture only people. We love to learn about the Hebrew roots of our faith. We believe it is important to not add or subtract from the Divine Word of God. The compiled scriptures that agree with one another and have no contradiction is the 66 books of what is commonly referred to as the Christian Bible, or the Holy Bible.
These writings were originally written by men inspired by God. They were written in the language of the writers and readers of the original documents. Many of the original documents have been lost, but God’s Word is eternal and remains. Therefore, it is important to us to study, learn, and consider the culture, history, and language of the original writers of the scriptures.
In our studies we have learned that the true name of God is Yehovah, and His son, our Messiah, is named Yeshua. Therefore, as you read our posts we will use the Hebrew names of God and our Messiah.
