38 Ways to Pray for Your Husband

Praying for my husband allows me to have a positive impact in his life. Something usually happens when we pray for others, especially for our husbands. When we pray for our husbands, the hardness in our heart softens, our anger recedes, our hurts are healed, and forgiveness takes place. I have a picture of my husband as a little boy that I keep with my prayer journal. It reminds me that my husband is one of God’s children, and I ask God to help me see my husband through His eyes. After this kind of prayer and after looking at that picture, I find it very hard to be upset with him.

You can pray for your husband in a variety of ways. How you pray for him, however, is not as important as consistently and frequently lifting Him up before the Lord.

Pray for your husband’s specific needs. The following list may help as you develop a greater and more detailed prayer life for your husband. Pray:

  • That he will be Spirit filled
  • That he will have a strong walk with the Lord
  • That he will have a productive day
  • That God will bless his appointments
  • That he will be able to handle the stress of the day
  • That God will give him wisdom in counseling
  • That he would have a sense of fulfillment
  • That he would have sufficient study time
  • That God will strengthen him in his burdens
  • That God will protect him from temptation
  • That God will give protection from anyone wanting to hurt him
  • That God will protect his reputation
