(W) Wife of Noble Character

Lindsey, today, for the letter W, I am reading and rereading about the characteristics of a Wife of noble character. Many of these characteristics would be good to imitate, and you already are doing so for many of them. I pray that you would continue to be a virtuous role model for the young women of this age!

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for opening my eyes and my ears as well as my head and my heart to what you are doing in the world today. Thank you for the many godly people you have surrounded me with. And thank you for constantly being with Lindsey and encouraging her to continue to be a role model for young women today, with many of the characteristics mentioned in Proverbs 31:25-31:

  • Strength and honour are her clothing;
    and she shall rejoice in time to come.
  • She openeth her mouth with wisdom;
    and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
  • She looketh well to the ways of her household,
    and eateth not the bread of idleness.
  • Her children arise up, and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praiseth her.
  • Many daughters have done virtuously,
    but thou excellest them all.
  • Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain:
         but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
  • Give her of the fruit of her hands;
    and let her own works praise her in the gates.

Lord, here I am. I am ready to start my next day’s prayer for Lindsey, the daughter you love. Lindsey, I pray that God would gift you with more than mere entertainment talents, more than dancing skills, more than musical giftings. I pray that God would gift you the many characteristics that Proverbs speaks of referring to a wife of noble character. I pray that you would have the courage to remain virtuous in the midst of a culture that often is not. I pray that God would give you strength and honor as your clothes, and that you would look to the future with great joy and rejoicing. I pray that wisdom and kindness would be what others hear when you speak. I pray that your example will help those who are idle and bored to see that there is a better way. I pray that the young women today would call you blessed and that young men would praise you. I pray that you would excel in virtue ignoring favor and beauty but clinging to a reverent fear of the Lord. I pray that you would be rewarded for all that you do and that your deeds would bring you praise. And we will give the glory to God. All the glory is his. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
