Hope from the Truths of God's Word

The Prayer Life of a Content Wife

Humility says, “I need God.”

Pride says, “I am self-sufficient.”

And sometimes pride sounds lowly and needy with words like, “I’m deficient and you must meet my needs.” Pride brings with it a burden of supplying your own needs or demanding that others supply them.

What are your needs as a wife? Who are you asking to supply those needs?

About Jennifer O. White

I’m a simple wife who has discovered God’s amazing gift of prayer. Here at Prayerfully Speaking I share my journey of unwrapping this gift. God invites us to ask Him, but His enemy works diligently to keep that from happening. I hope to offer you encouragement to believe God is ready to pour more into your life than you’ve ever imaged.
