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.

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

If your husband is not confident:

(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

If he is worried about something:

(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

If he needs 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
