Your husband struggles with attack daily.
He may not talk with you about it, but the struggle is real. Sometimes the attack is from his own flesh. Sometimes it’s a natural consequence of living in a sinful world. And sometimes it’s a direct assault from his “adversary the devil [who] prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8, ESV).
You can grab hold of a strategy outlined in Scripture to thwart Satan’s attack against your husband. Scripture commands believers to “be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might” and to “put on the whole armor of God” so that we can “stand against the schemes of the devil.” Furthermore, we are told that “we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:10-13, ESV).
When we, as wives, suit up in the armor of God (which basically means to cover ourselves in the character of Christ and pray in the Spirit at all times), we can—through faith and God’s Word – “extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one” (verse 16).
Those flaming darts are hurled at several areas of your husband’s life. So here are 10 areas of your husband’s life to pray against Satan’s attack:
