Back in August, I joined a challenge on Facebook to pray for your wife for 31 days (actually I prayed for my own wife, but you get what I’m saying). It helped me develop the habit and gave me a specific thing to pray for each day.
Naturally, I decided it would work in September as well, and so having made a recurring to-do item in my to-do app (called 2Do by the way), I was reminded each day, but had to look up the post on Facebook. Kind of a pain, but then a PDF ebook thing was put together, and I could just consult that to remember what I was supposed to pray for each day.
That kind of worked, but consulting a PDF in Goodreader wasn’t the smoothest operation everyday. Others noticed this, and one went to work on a solution.
Finally, today, much to my surprise, an app was released, and you my male friend, should go download it. You may already have a super-awesome habit of praying for your wife everyday, but this will help broaden your prayers. And, if you’re like me, and didn’t have the best habit down in the first place, this is a great place to start and a good way to keep yourself faithful in praying for your wife (even if you don’t have one yet!). It will force you to put thought into what you are praying for your wife and develop your habit of praying for her in a variety of different ways.
I’ve been doing it for 3 months now and this app I’m sure well help keep me going strong in the months to come. It’s already taken the place of my Twitter app on my home screen (more on that later), so even if I don’t have time everyday for personal devotions, I still have my phone with me all the time, and since I have the habit of checking it, having the app right there serves as constant reminder.
All that to say, if you have a wife, you need to be praying for her, and this app will help you do that well. If you don’t have a wife, why not develop the habit now?
