Completing Him Challenge - Praise!

In practice with our assignment for the Completing Him Challenge, I asked hubby how I could pray for him this week.  His answer for the past three days has been, "Pray that I get my last deal".  Hubby sells services for a national company.  This is the first month of their fiscal year.  He is one deal short of his monthly quota.  Basically, they are given incentives for meeting their quotas each month, but if you miss one, you miss out for the whole year.  You can't go back if you miss one month and get back on the incentive wagon.  So, if he didn't get his last deal, he would be out of the running for these incentives for the whole year.  He has been so stressed about this - and jumped on the opportunity when I asked him if I could pray for him.  So, I've been praying.  I prayed for God to give him guidance, to send him in the right directions, to have him look places he might not normally look, and to have hubby trust him that he would provide him what we needed.  I also prayed that if it didn't work out, that God would give him confidence in his work and would not let him be too down on himself.  I prayed in the morning, while I was working, when I got home, when we went to sleep.

And guess what?  GOD ANSWERED OUR PRAYERS!  Hubby spent the entire day yesterday trying new things and reaching out to new people, and the most random company gave him a referral.  He was concerned that it wouldn't be able to run in time, but guess what?  He just called and told me that everything fell into place and is going to work out perfectly.  PRAISE GOD!

I just wanted to share with all of you doing this challenge that it's only been 3 days of deliberately praying for my husband, and look what has already happened.  God is Great!!!!  I cannot wait to see what he does next!  My first response to hubby was, "WOW!  God answered our prayers!!!"  He said, "Yeah babe, he sure did.  Thank you for praying".  That just makes my heart so happy!

How amazing it is to see God work! Praying for our husbands is such a great blessing and privilege as their wife and help-meet.
