But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and forever! Amen. 2 Peter 3:18
Lord, I pray that my husband would grow in wisdom, knowledge and discernment with Your amazing love. Give him a desire to know You personally and to follow You forever. Lord, if he doesn’t have a personal relationship with You, I pray that You would chase after him. Give him dreams or visions in the night to turn him from all ungodly relationships or wrong doings and soften his hardened heart to a heart of flesh. May my husband have a fervency to read God’s Word daily. Lord, may he become the spiritual leader in our home, praying for me, his children and lost loved ones. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
For I know the plan I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:11-13
Lord, I pray that You will give my husband purpose. I pray that my husband would seek after You for Your will in his life. Give my husband the wisdom to know when You are speaking to Him and give him ears to hear what You say. I pray that he will be obedient to what You say. I pray that he will call upon You for direction in his life. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity. Proverbs 11:3
Lord, I pray that my husband will be a man of integrity in all that he does. Give him the desire to be an upright man in all his dealings at work and in his personal life. Lord, help my husband be a man of his word. Give my husband the boldness to show integrity, even if the cost will be great. May he live a life of honesty and speak only truth. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you are proved right when you speak and justified when you judge. Psalm 51:1-4
Lord, I pray that my husband will seek You to be Lord of his life. I pray that he would repent of his sins he has committed and that you would cleanse Him from all impurities and any idols. Thank You, Jesus for dying on the cross and overcoming the tomb for my husband and all sinners. Lord, give my husband a heart that desires to follow after You. I pray that he would have a softened heart that hurts when he breaks Your heart. Direct his steps to flee and run from the temptation of sins. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body. Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own, you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body. 1 Corinthians 6:18-20
Lord, I pray that you would keep my husband sexually pure. Remove anyone or anything that is in his life that is tempting him to be sexually impure. I pray that my husband would have eyes only for me. Give him memories of our times together and may that be what he dwells on. I pray that he would desire me and no one else. Keep my husband pure in the entertainment choices he makes every day. Remove the desire from him to seek sexual gratification from any outside source. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
In my anguish I cried to the Lord, and he answered by setting me free. The Lord is with me, I will not be afraid. What can man do to me? The Lord is with me, he is my helper. I will look in triumph on my enemies. Psalm 118:5-7
When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me? Psalm 56:3-4
Lord, I pray that the fear that overwhelms my husband’s mind will be replaced by a peace that only You can give. I pray that fear of failure, the future, my reactions or the reactions of others, would no longer govern the mind of my husband. Remove all his fear, anxiety, and worry and give him a peace in his heart and mind that He recognizes comes only from You. I pray that when my husband lays his head on the pillow tonight, he would look to You and realize that true peace comes when we belong to You. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. Psalm 91:1-4
Lord, teach me to learn how to fight this spiritual battle that has come in to our lives to steal, kill and destroy our marriage and our family. Lord, remind me every day to put the Armor of God on my family. Lord, I choose to speak God’s Word to fight against the enemy. Thank You for Your Hedge of Protection and that You will train me for battle. You are my strength, my rock, my fortress, my stronghold, my shield and my deliverer for my wife and family. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen
Leadership in Our Home
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy. Ephesians 5:25
Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them. Colossians 3:19
Lord, give my husband the desire to be the spiritual leader in our home that You want him to be. I pray that he would have a desire to live in our home and be my husband. Heal his heart from any past hurts that cause him to retreat as a husband. I pray that any outside influences that cause him to desire something or someone other than me, would be severed. Give my husband a steadfastness to fight for our marriage and to storm the gates of Hell when the enemy tries to take it away from us. No weapon forged against us will prevail. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
No servant can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” Luke 16:13
Lord, I pray that my husband would be a good steward of the money You give him. I pray that he would want to further Your work with the money he earns. I pray that my husband would want to take care of his family with his income. Lord, where there is a battle between my husband and me regarding finances, I pray for peace. I pray for wisdom in dealing with my husband where the courts are involved in our finances. Unite us as one in regards to the financial aspect of our marriage. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
The fear of the Lord teaches a man wisdom, and humility comes before honor.Proverbs 15:33
In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps. Proverbs 16:9
Lord, give my husband a teachable spirit. I pray that he would seek You in every decision he makes. Send men into my husband’s life who can help direct his steps to Your will and way. When my husband is wrong, help him to have a heart that is willing to admit it. Remove the pride from my husband’s life. Open his eyes to see and hear Your will for him. Remove the men and friends from my husband’s life who offer ungodly counsel. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2
Lord, help my husband resist the temptation that he faces each day. May he be transformed by Your power and become a new creature in Christ. I pray that he would no longer put himself in situations where he is tempted to behave in ungodly ways. May he realize that you have provided an escape for him. He doesn’t have to give in to the lust of his eyes, lust of the world’s ways and the pride of life that he is facing daily. Lord, rescue him from the sinful lifestyle that may be tempting him daily. I pray that the soul ties from any prior ungodly relationship will be broken. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:12-14
Lord, redeem the past that haunts my husband. Where there is brokenness, I pray that you will restore him totally. Where there are memories of hurt from his childhood, may you heal his broken heart that is left behind. Give me the ability to forgive my husband for the way he has hurt me in the past. I pray that my husband would look to You so he may forgive anyone who has hurt or wounded him throughout his life. I pray that you would replace any unforgiveness, hatred, bitterness, or hurt from my husband’s past with Your unconditional love. Lord, touch and heal his heart completely. I thank You that nothing is too hard for You to do. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
