As believers, we all know that prayer is important. There was a time that I didn’t pray for my husband very much. I prayed for other people and things, but not my husband much. During that time, I was often very frustrated by my husband.
It’s interesting how when we pray for someone, our perspective changes. Yes, praying for our husband’s will change them, but I believe that our prayers really change us as wives as well. Years ago, I bought the book “The Power of a Praying Wife” by Stormie Omartian. If you don’t currently own it, it’s one I definitely recommend for every wife.
Below is the prayer that I pray over my husband at least several times a week.
A Prayer for Husbands
Dear God, I pray for my husband, ________________. Please help me to love, honor, and submit to him. Help me to remember that the voices that tell me he doesn’t love me or value me enough, are not truth.
I pray that _______________ would be led by Jesus first. That he would Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, knowing that all these things will be added to him (Matthew 6:33) If he does.
I pray that his work will be established, secure, successful, satisfying, and financially rewarding. Let him be like a tree planted by the stream of your living water, which brings forth fruit in due season. (Jeremiah 17:8) May he never wither under pressure, but grow strong and prosper. (Psalm 1:3)
I thank you, Lord, that “He who gives to the poor will not lack, but he who hides his eyes will have many curses.” (Prov 28:27) My husband does this so I believe that he is incredibly blessed.
I thank you, God, that each time he travels he is protected-…”He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.” (Psalm 91:2)
I pray that he would see the value in being a godly Father to his children.
I pray that he will have the desire to take care of his body, to eat the kind of food that brings health, to get regular exercise, and avoid anything that would be harmful to him. I pray that he will present it as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to you. (Romans 12:1)
In Jesus Name, Amen.
