I will be joining Mary at Better Than Eden tomorrow in prayer for our husbands! This seems to have come just at the perfect time, considering I just finished a book all about a wife’s prayers for her husband! Please join us as we pray our way to the Feast Day of St. Joseph, the husband of Mary!
God gave us to our husbands to be their help and support. Remember the story of Sarah and Tobiah in the book of Tobit and let us pray for and with our husbands!
When Sarah’s parents left the bedroom and closed the door behind them, Tobiah rose from bed and said to his wife, “My sister, come, let us pray and beg our Lord to grant us mercy and protection.”
She got up, and they started to pray and beg that they might be protected. He began with these words:
“Blessed are you, O God of our ancestors; blessed be your name forever and ever! Let the heavens and all your creation bless you forever. You made Adam, and you made his wife Eve to be his helper and support; and from these two the human race has come. You said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone; let us make him a helper like himself.’ – Tobit 8:4-6
