Praying for Your Husband

The power of our prayers for our husbands cannot be overstated. One of the greatest gifts we can give to them daily is to listen to the Holy Spirit in guiding us on how to pray God's will over their life and what promises from God's Word can we declare for them each day. Below are a few Scriptures to help guide you in this process.

His Relationship with God:

The beginning of any strong relationship with our spouse begins with their personal relationship with God. Does he spend time in prayer and in his Bible frequently? These are starting points in which you can begin to pray over him. And as you do, it's not out of judgement, but for the good of his life, his leadership in your relationship and all aspects of dealing with finances, marriage, raising children and more. Come with humility for God to draw him to Himself, guiding him in all his ways.

(S) Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.

Proverbs 4:23 NIV

(P) Father, above everything I desire for my husband, I ask that You help ___ guard his heart, his eyes and choices he makes as you prompt him warnings to avoid things, reminding ___ that everything flows

Your Relationship to him:

(S) "Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. 5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage." Philippians 2:1-6 NIV

(P) Father, thank You for allowing my husband and I to be united through Christ. I pray for a heart that's tender and full of Your compassion for us to be united as one. Help me be selfless and a humble heart, to value my husband as You call me. Forgive me for looking at my own interests over his. Help me to have the mindset as Jesus Christ in being willing to follow Your will God as it relates to my relationship to my husband.

His relationships with others:

(S) "36 You must be compassionate, just as your Father is compassionate. 37 'Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn others, or it will all come back against you. Forgive others, and you will be forgiven. 38 Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.'"

Luke 6:36-38 NLT

To be confident, not prideful:

(S) “'I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart! And the peace I give isn’t fragile like the peace the world gives. So don’t be troubled or afraid.'"

John 14:27 TLB

To be worry-free in everything:

(S) "Now to the God who can do so many awe-inspiring things, immeasurable things, things greater than we ever could ask or imagine through the power at work in us,."

Ephesians 3:20 VOICE

Clarity in understanding God's purpose for his life:

(S) "But first and most importantly seek (aim at, strive after) His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right—the attitude and character of God], and all these things will be given to you also."

Matthew 6:33 AMP

If he is overwhelmed:

(S) "You, Lord, are the light that keeps me safe. I am not afraid of anyone. You protect me, and I have no fears."

Psalm 27:1 CEV

God bless your husband:

(S) "The fear of the LORD is what wisdom teaches, and humility comes before honor."

Proverbs 15:33 CSB

(S) "Not serving to the eye, as it were pleasing men, but, as the servants of Christ doing the will of God from the heart,

Ephesians 6:6 DRB"

To love deeply

(S) "Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself up for it;"

Ephesians 5:25-29 ASV

(S) "Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them."

Colossians 3:19 KJV

(S) "In the same way, you husbands must give honor to your wives. Treat your wife with understanding as you live together. She may be weaker than you are, but she is your equal partner in God’s gift of new life. Treat her as you should so your prayers will not be hindered."

1 Peter 3:7 NLT

Spiritual leader of your home

(S) "Now I want you to know that Christ is the head of all men, and a man is the head of a woman. But God is the head of Christ. "

1 Corinthians 11:3 CEV

(S) "Husbands, love your wives as Christ loved the church and gave his life for it. 26He did this to make the church holy by cleansing it, washing it using water along with spoken words. 27Then he could present it to himself as a glorious church, without any kind of stain or wrinkle-holy and without faults. 28So husbands must love their wives as they love their own bodies. A man who loves his wife loves himself. 29No one ever hated his own body. Instead, he feeds and takes care of it, as Christ takes care of the church."

Ephesians 5:25-29 GW

Make Wise Decisions

(S) "You were indeed called to be free, brothers and sisters. Don't turn this freedom into an excuse for your corrupt nature to express itself. Rather, serve each other through love."

Galatians 5:13-15 GW

Mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well being

(S) "Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil in the Lord is not in vain."

1 Corinthians 15:58 BLB

Stamina to resist sexual temptation

(S) "Drink water from your own well— share your love only with your wife."

Proverbs 5:15 NLT

(S) "I belong to my beloved, and his desire is for me."

Song of Solomon 7:10 NIV

(S) "3But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints. 4Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving. 5For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God."

Ephesians 5:3-5 ESV

Pray that you can always show your husband love and respect

(S) "The heart of her husband trusts in her. He shall have no lack of gain."

Proverbs 31:11-12 WEB

A heart for your children and be a godly example that leads the family well

(S) "Fathers, don’t stir up anger in your children, but bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord."

Ephesians 6:4 CSB

(S) "Fathers, do not antagonize your children, so that they will not become discouraged."

Colossians 3:21NASB
