Household Prayer: Believe… you and your household

Brothers, I am praying from my morning scripture reading today (Acts 16:31-33) that our households would be filled with the truth, grace, gospel, and glory of God unto salvation. May revival start with belief, faithfulness, and obedience in our homes, oh God.

“And they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.” And they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house. And he took them the same hour of the night and washed their wounds; and he was baptized at once, he and all his family.” Acts 16:31-33 ESV

The godly fathers create the environment where a wife is free to enjoy motherhood
He provides the home with the tools she needs to do her job.
He also provides authority, so all the children know that mom will be honored—and any dishonor will be swiftly dealt with.
And he provides vision for the future of the home. What is it all leading to? Where are we going, and how are we going to get there?
This is what enables a good wife to transform a mere house into a vibrant home. An empowered and well-resourced home-keeper is an amazing thing to behold!
This isn’t easy. Especially in the modern day, doing these things is very difficult, and takes time and patience, trial and error. It’s not a switch that you flip. It’s a labor of love that you invest in every day. There are dead ends and detours, missteps and setbacks.
But this is the goal we work towards.”
