This article will share with you five different ways you can pray for your husband. Hopefully, it will help you to broaden the scope of your prayer, opening your relationship up to a whole host of new possibilities.
“Father God, above all things, I pray that my husband knows Jesus intimately. May his relationship with Jesus grow in knowledge and depth of insight so that he may be blameless and pure (Philippians 1:9-10). Lord, I ask that my husband recognizes every instance where he needs to confess sin and that he knows You are faithful to forgive (1 John 19).
Because Your word is light unto our paths, kindle a desire in my husband to know and understand your Holy Scripture so that he may know Your will for every step of his life.”
This prayer shows that you cherish and love your husband, and also that you put faith in God’s plan. The perfect mix of asking and accepting.
“You, God, are the ultimate Father. You love us with a great love and show compassion to your children. May my husband follow your example of how to be a father. Fill his heart with kindness, patience, and love for his children.
Help him to guide and teach our children in the way they should go, and they will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6). I pray my husband will be present and engaged with his children, and when fatherhood is difficult and trying, help him to avoid angry words and to accord grace and understanding.
You, Father, specifically designed for the husband to be the head of the household, as Christ is the head of the church (Ephesians 5:21-20). Jesus demonstrated this leadership role with love, grace, and a gentle kind of strength. Lord, guide my husband in this role to love unconditionally as Jesus does, lead with gentle strength and extend grace and mercy.”
This prayer can help guide your family down the right path. With the support of your husband, when taking care of the children and the household, in line with God’s higher plan, your family will remain both happy and faithful.
“Father, integrity is the quality of being honest and having strong moral character. Lord, when my husband finds himself in situations where he must decide between the world and Your will, give him the confidence to walk upright and be guided by integrity (Proverbs 11:3). May the people he encounters each day be encouraged by his example and also choose what is right. Let his life and the choices he makes be a light in the darkness.”
Integrity is a great quality in a person. Pray that your husband will move through life with integrity and remain on the side of righteousness.
Pray that your husband will grow in wisdom throughout life.
“Lord, your Word says that if we ask for wisdom, You give generously (James 1:5). Provide my husband with the judgment to make godly decisions and discern what is best. Guide him to build our home upon wisdom and fill each room with grace, love, and peace (Proverbs 24:3-4). Most of all, let his wisdom be rooted in the fear of God. Make my husband’s wisdom not from this world but heavenly, being pure, peace-loving, considerate, submissive to You, and full of mercy (James 3:17). “
Wisdom will help your family to move along the right tracks. To always have faith in the higher plan and to progress through life with grace and in peace. As one grows older, wisdom is gained through the experiences provided by the Lord. Learn from your experiences and make the most of the lessons.
Pray to protect your husband’s heart.
“Lord, I know that everything we think and do comes from our hearts, but the heart can often be deceitful (Proverbs 4:23). Protect his heart against evil and the ploys of the enemy. Give him an undivided heart that seeks to fill every corner with your truth. Teach him to trust in You and not depend on his knowledge and understanding so that his paths will be straight (Proverbs 3:5-6). May his heart’s treasure be love for You.”
As his partner in life, you know how precious your husband’s heart is. As his wife, you want him to be happy and fulfilled. Praying for your husband’s heart will enable him to have faith in life, that he is treading the road he should be, as it is what was planned for him.
Hopefully, these prayers will enable you to include some new topics or verses in your prayers for your husband. Help him to have faith in God’s plan and to move forward with peace in his heart and wisdom in his head. It is clear that you care deeply for your husband, by the fact you are reading this, keep up the good work and grow together with your husband.
