I’m reading through a little book handed to me at the disability conference last week and came across several prayers like this one (emphasis in bold is mine):
How to Pray for Your Spouse
If you are the wage earner and your spouse is doing much of the caretaking, the most helpful thing you can do is pray without ceasing. Lift this spouse up in prayer constantly. . . Thank God for your spouse’s willingness to take care of your family while you are away. Be thankful for this partner.
Jeff and Erin Miller, Forever & Always, No Matter What: A Story of Marriage, Autism and God’s Glory, pp. 41-42.
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 ESV)
I’m still working my way through this book, mostly because they caught my attention right on the first page of introduction: “This book is written primarily to help you face autism in a way that glorifies God.”
Now that’s a good reason to write a book!
