An Excellent Wife Who Can Find- My Prayer...

10 An excellent wife who can find?
She is far more precious than jewels.
11 The heart of her husband trusts in her,
and he will have no lack of gain.
12 She does him good, and not harm,
all the days of her life.
13 She seeks wool and flax,
and works with willing hands.
14 She is like the ships of the merchant;
she brings her food from afar.
15 She rises while it is yet night
and provides food for her household
and portions for her maidens.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.
17 She dresses herself with strength
and makes her arms strong.
18 She perceives that her merchandise is profitable.
Her lamp does not go out at night.
19 She puts her hands to the distaff,
and her hands hold the spindle.
20 She opens her hand to the poor
and reaches out her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of snow for her household,
for all her household are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes bed coverings for herself;
her clothing is fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates
when he sits among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them;
she delivers sashes to the merchant.
25 Strength and dignity are her clothing,
and she laughs at the time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom,
and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
27 She looks well to the ways of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women have done excellently,
but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands,
and let her works praise her in the gates.
(Proverbs 31:10-31 ESV)

( I know it says mother's day but I thought
it was fitting for the Proverbs 31 Woman)
My prayer today is that I will be a blessing to my husband.  That his heart will trust in me, and that I will be of great value to him. 
That I will take care of our home making it a place where he and our children can feel relaxed and taken care of. 
That from the abilities God has given me I will be able to take care of and provide for my family things such as yummy, healthy food, and warm clothes and shoes for their bodies and feet. 
That I will be a good steward of our money spending it wisely with my family's best interest always at heart. 
That I will not be lazy, but work diligently not only for the well being of my family but also so that my children can see the godly example set before them. 
I pray that my heart and eyes will be aware of the needs of those around me, and that when I see someone hurting from that need I will be quick to provide however I can. 
That my heart, mind, and soul will trust in God for provision.  That through that trust I will know that our future is secure.
I pray for wisdom, patience, and kindness to go out before me.  That my children and husband will see how much I love them and that they will be thankful- as I am thankful for them. 
I pray that God will help me to focus on my walk with him- not things of this world. 
I pray that I will look to Chirst in awe and wonder always remembering that he is my provider, my strength, and my all.
