Encouragement For Wives Fasting And Praying For Marriage


We are just about halfway through our commitment of 40 days fasting and praying for marriage!

It seems as though the second I committed in faith to do this fast the enemy has relentlessly attacked and tried to bring me down.  As I strive to grow closer to God, the enemy is striking me in very vulnerable areas, such as fear.  This verse really encouraged me when I caught myself anxious with fear:

Psalm 56:3 “When I am afraid, I will trust in You.”

My husband and I have also been feeling very overwhelmed.  This hinders our ability to be diligent throughout the day and it steals our joy.  We know we are not the only ones feeling this way so we just want you to know we are praying for you and cheering for you!

Also, if you committed to this fast but feel as if you have failed because you missed a day or caved into the very thing you chose to sacrifice… IT IS OK!  Just pick up where you left off!  This was meant to challenge you, it is good for your character to follow through with it regardless of if you feel like you messed up!


Please take a minute to pray for your marriage and for other wives who may be feeling attacked by the enemy.  You can even leave a prayer written out in the comments!  I am confident that God will use these prayers to encourage all of us wives!
