"Mission Possible" by Deborah L. McCarragher is a book about encouragement. She offers strategies and Bible verses to assist a wife in her endeavor to introduce her husband to the Lord. Each chapter ends with questions that make the reader think.
Too often, we speak without thinking of the consequences of our words. I remember specifically when I began to seriously pray for my husband, I prayed first that the Lord would allow me to utter only words of gratification. I found a change in my behavior toward my husband. Then I began to pray that the Lord would strengthen his faith. After that, I added a situation in his career. I saw a change in him. I had not told him I was praying specifically in these areas.
Recently, my husband and I were discussing the influence women have over their husbands. Most men want to please their wives and, when treated with respect and love, will do almost anything for them. We accomplish much more through kindness and example than we do through begging, pleading and demanding.
When I was growing up, my father did not attend church. He was very proud that his family were church-goers. He would drop us off at church and then go fishing. He’d return in time to pick us up. I remember asking him to go to church, and he’d get angry. My mother wisely told me to pray about it, but not to ask him again. I did as she suggested. One Saturday, he asked us why we didn’t want him to go to church with us. I knew to keep my mouth shut. Mom calmly told him that we did want him to go with us. Then he wanted to know why we didn’t ask him to go. Again mother calmly stated that he would go when he was ready. Sheepishly, dad wanted to know if he could go with us the next day. That scene has long stayed with me. We should pray unceasingly but leave it in the Lord’s hands. Through prayer and example, my dad became a Christian.
I highly recommend "Mission Possible" to all married couples. While this book is written for women, the same principles are true for men.
