Most of us do the grocery shopping and plan the meals for the family. We can feed our families junk like soda and chips or we can plan healthy meals with plenty of fruits and veggies. So as we pray for our husband's health, let's look at some practical ways we can help him be healthy. Most of you know that Brian and I enjoy hiking and we try to go every Monday. In the beginning of our marriage Brian did not enjoy it as much as I did and with three little kids it was difficult to do on a regular basis. He liked to play racquetball so we joined a gym and I tried to not get hit with the ball! My point is we were active and participating in an activity that was great for our health. May I suggest instead of nagging your husband to lose weight or workout that you find an activity that he enjoys and do it with him. Take a walk, play tennis or golf, join a soccer or basketball league. Fill your refrigerator and cupboards with healthy snacks. Instead of fast food prepare homecooked meals that are full of nutrients not sugar. Don't forget to pray! Elizabeth suggests to pray 1 Corinthians 6:19-20.
Father, I pray that (your husband's name) will understand that his body is Your temple
and that the Holy Spirit now lives within him. Help (your husband's name) realize what
a great price was paid for this personal relationship with You. Work in (your husband's
name) heart and life. Cause him to desire to make every effort to honor You with his body.
