Blessed to be my husband's wife and the mom of two teenage boys
As I began praying for my own husband a couple years ago, I honestly didn't understand why God kept pointing all my prayers back to myself. It took me a while to figure out that God was going to change my heart in preparation of changing my husband's, but I'm so glad he did. It's a wonderful thing to know that Manny and I are on the same page in how to manage our household and raise our boys. I know this would not be the case if God had changed him without changing me first!
Before I can begin to ask God to change my spouse – to pray for his godly character to be developed and matured – I must be willing to be changed myself. I must humble myself before God, submitting to His sovereign will, and allow Him to use my prayers to change my own heart.

It is not enough to know what the Bible says – we must also allow it to change how we live.
