40 Prayers for my Husband: His Hearing

"The heart of the discerning
acquires knowledge;
the ears of the wise seek it out."
~Proverbs 18:15~

Today I pray my husband will have his ears opened so he can hear wisdom, direction and guidance from the Lord and other wise men on this earth.

I hope you take a moment to pray these words over your husband as well. 

Prayer #11. His Hearing

Father, I praise You for the infinite wisdom You alone possess. I thank You that You willingly pour it out to those who ask. (James 1)
Today I pray my husband will not only ask and seek wisdom, but that he may be able to hear it clearly and correctly; to have his ears opened, always eager to hear Your word. May he be one who says, "Come and hear the message that has come from the Lord." Then also do as it says. May he never be as those who do hear Your word but never put them into practice. (Ez.33:30-31) You, Jesus, have said, "But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand." (Matt.7:26) You have not given my husband ears that cannot be opened or a heart that cannot be molded and taught. Remove all foolishness and self centeredness so that he may be able to discern what is Your wisdom from the wisdom as the world sees it.
Father, open his ears to all good instruction, knowledge, and all sound teaching. Open his ears also to words of rebuke, correction and chastisement. While hearing such words are never easy they are necessary for growth. Give him wise discernment as he considers the words.  Make all that is from you  like an ornament of fine gold to his listening ear. (Pr.25:12)
May all sound teaching fall on the good soil of his heart, so may hear Your words, accept Your words and produce an abundant crop with his good life. (Mark 4:20) May he not only be a listener of Your word but a hearer and doer of them as well. In Jesus' precious name. Amen.

"Do not merely listen to the word,
and so deceive yourselves.
~James 1:22~
