A few years ago, I was gifted the most amazing book called, The Power of a Praying Wife by Stormie Omartian. This book was a total game changer in my marriage.
I learned that in order to strengthen and preserve your marriage, you must say intentional prayers for your husband. Based on that fact, I created a list of powerful, daily prayers for your husband . Remember, God promises that if we do our part in prayer, he will take care of all the heavy lifting.
PRAY FOR HIS HEALTH & WELL-BEING
“Father, I pray that you keep my husband happy and healthy. Protect him from illness, disease and any other health complications. I pray you keep his body healthy, strong and able. Amen.”
PRAY FOR PROTECTION
“God, I pray that you protect my husband as he goes out into the world in order to bring an income for our family. Cover him with Your safety and protection. Lord, keep him safe from accidents and bad situations. Protect him and bring him back home safely to our family, I pray. Amen.”
PRAY HE IS A GOOD FATHER
“Father God, I pray that you make my husband into the father my children need. Help them see in him a role model and an example of a man of character. In Ephesians 6:4, your Word says, “Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” God, I pray that my husband follows this example as he guides, teaches and instructs our children in your Word. Amen.”
PRAY FOR HIS WORK
“Lord Jesus, I pray that you bless my husband in his place of work. I pray that you continually open up new doors of opportunity for him in the workplace, so that he can build and grow a career for the benefit of our family. We thank You for providing him with his job and pray that You continue to protect our livelihood. Thank You for your blessings and provision over our family. Amen.”
PRAY FOR HIS RELATIONSHIPS
“Lord, I pray for my husband’s relationships with others. Let him be an example of Your Word, and I pray that others can see You in him. Help him to be a role model to all those around him.
I pray that when he is faced with a situation of conflict, he is able to look past any differences, always treating others with grace and forgiveness. Lord, I pray you protect his relationship with his parents, in-laws and siblings, as well. Amen.”
PRAY FOR HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD
“God, I pray that my husband works daily on strengthening and building his relationship with You. Help him to seek You always, not just in times of trial, but also in the good times as well. Guide his heart and help him make You the greatest priority in his life. Amen.”
PRAY FOR HIS LEADERSHIP
“Lord God, I pray that you continue to mold my husband into a strong, spiritual leader in our home. Let him be an example for our children, showing them what it means to be a Man of God. Lord, help him to direct and guide our path as a family. Amen.”
PRAY FOR GUIDANCE IN THE DELEGATION OF FINANCES
“God, I pray that you protect our finances and the provisions you have provided us. Help my husband and I to be good stewards over all you have given our family. Lord, we pray for your continued provisions and blessings over our family. Amen.”
PRAY FOR COURAGE & STRENGTH
“God, I pray that you fill my husband with courage and strength as he goes through his day to day life. Keep him strong in his faith, and give him the courage to speak Your Word when he is faced with the opportunity. Give him the courage and strength to live as a strong, Godly man. Amen.”
PRAY YOU ARE HIS IDEAL PARTNER
“Lord, always protect our unity as husband and wife, making us the perfect compliment for one another. Help me to be the helper that my husband needs physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Lord, it is so easy to nag and stress my husband, but I pray that you help me to be a joy for my husband and never a hindrance.
Let our relationship grow stronger and stronger each and every day. Help me to love the man you gave me unconditionally, even if he may not deserve it in that moment. Help me to treat him with mercy and always forgive our differences. Amen.”
When you pray over your husband, God has the opportunity to work and make any necessary changes. In the grand scheme of things, it seems so insignificant, but intentional prayers for your husband are a powerful tool to unify and protect your marriage.
