Father God, You have always desired to speak to Your children. You walked with Adam and Eve before the fall and You spoke through Your prophets in the Old Testament. Your desire for communication was made available to everyone through Jesus and the gift of the Holy Spirit (John 16:7-13). Thank You, Lord, that You long to fellowship with us. I pray that my husband would respond to Your pursuits and that he would equally long to talk with You. Help him develop and strengthen the spiritual discipline of prayer. May he crave personal and intimate communication with You that would allow for the two of you to speak like old friends (Exodus 33:11). Teach him also how to listen to You since faith comes through hearing (Romans 10:17). I ask that my husband would worship You and praise You for being a god who loves to talk with His followers. In Christ’s name I pray. Amen.
