One day as I was praying for my husband, this list of positive confessions just kept flowing through me. And I share them with you.
I PRAISE THE LORD THAT:
My husband is free to praise the Lord with all his heart and can dance before Him like David danced. He delights himself in the presence of the Lord in intimate fellowship alone and with others. He is walking only in the presence of good company and Christian fellowship.
His life is a testimony of God’s faithfulness, and he presents himself as a light in the midst of a world of darkness. His heart is pure and honest in every area of his life. He is full of integrity. His feet will only lead him in the paths of righteousness. He is full of holy boldness ready to present the Gospel wherever he goes.
He is the priest of his household spending time with them before the Lord nurturing and admonishing them with the Word and in prayer, praise and worship. He is a good husband loving his wife like Jesus loves the church and is a good father. He is sensitive to the needs of his wife and children in the area of fellowship. He has a wife who stands behind him praying daily and only encourages and lifts him up. He has a Proverbs 31 wife.
He takes care of his body by being conscious of what he eats, drinks, exercise, and cleanliness. His hands only do what is good and he gives into no unclean habits like smoking. He is totally delivered of any type of bondage or addiction. He does not pollute his body with nicotine, alcohol, drugs, food or drink in excess, or even that which will contaminate his thoughts.
He is in the Lord’s perfect will and his flesh is subject to the Holy Spirit and the fruit of the Spirit is maturing in his life. The joy of the Lord and His peace and love overflow in his life like a river.
He is sensitive to the burden of the Lord and stays focused on the vision God has given him of breakthrough and revival. He is an anointed man of God full of grace and truth and the Gifts flow through him as he is being conformed into the image of the Lord Jesus. He is full of wisdom and discernment and the fruit of patience abounds in his life. He is an overcomer and has the mind of Christ and is hungry and thirsty for the Word and His presence.
He is covered with the Blood of Jesus and God’s angels watch over him and protect him and fight evil off on his behalf and he is fully armed with God’s armor. No evil can overtake him and no plague can come nigh his dwelling.
He is strong in faith, dead to the flesh, continuously being filled with God’s Spirit and he puts the Kingdom of God first and loves not the world and its ways. He is prospering and in good health and his soul is prospering. He receives grace from both God and man.
No evil can overtake his speech because the Lord guards his mouth that only what edifies comes forth. He watches or reads nothing that will not edify his spiritual growth. He does not fulfill the desires of the flesh and the mind but only crucifies the flesh because he builds himself up daily praying in the Spirit and staying in God’s Word. No evil can overtake his mind in the area of uncleanness. He is totally delivered of any pornography, lust or self abuse because he has the mind of Christ.
My husband is truly a blessing from God for he walks in the balance of grace and truth that he receives from the Father. I know that the Lord is pleased with him and will bless him abundantly in every area of his life. Therefore, I am blessed and I pray in return that I will be a blessing to him by yielding to the Father as He transforms me into the image of His dear Son.

Yolanda Ballard of At The Father’s Feet website shares with you, the body of Christ, the words she’s received quietly sitting at the Father’s feet. I believe Jesus set the example for us to follow. Whenever He could He would come apart from the busyness of the world so that He could quiet Himself before the Father, for that is where He received direction and strength to carry out His will.
