Share This Post

As a wife, one of the most important things you can do for your marriage is to actively pray for your husband from head to toe. By covering your husband in prayer daily, you become his prayer warrior and invite God’s power and provision into his life. Whether you’ve been married for years or are praying for your future husband, these powerful prayers, rooted in the word of God, will help guide and strengthen your prayer life.

Pray for his spiritual growth (Ephesians 3:16-19)

“Dear God, I pray for my husband and ask that You would strengthen him in his inner being through Your Spirit. I pray that Christ may dwell in his heart through faith and that he, being rooted and grounded in love, may have the power to comprehend the breadth, length, height, and depth of Your love. I pray for my husband to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge so that he may be filled with all the fullness of God. Amen.”

Pray for his role as a leader (Ephesians 5:25-26)

“Father God, I lift up a prayer for my husband and ask that You would help him love me as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her. I pray that he will lead our family with sacrificial love and godly wisdom. Help him to cleanse and nourish our marriage with the washing of water by the Word. May he lead us in righteousness and be a godly example to our children. Amen.”

Pray for his work and career (Proverbs 16:3)

“Lord, I pray for my husband’s work and career. I ask that You would help him commit his work to You, and that his plans would be established. Give him favor, wisdom, and diligence in his job. I pray that he would trust in You with all his heart and not lean on his own understanding (Proverbs 3:5-6). May his work bring glory to Your name. Amen.”

Pray for his friendships and relationships (Proverbs 27:17)

“God, I offer a prayer for my husband’s friendships. Just as iron sharpens iron, I pray that You would surround him with godly men who sharpen him and point him to You. Give him discernment in his relationships and protect him from harmful influences. Help him to be a friend who sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24). Amen.”

Pray for his health and well-being (3 John 1:2)

“Heavenly Father, I pray for my husband’s health and well-being. I ask that You would bless him with good health, even as his soul prospers. Protect him from sickness and give him strength. Help him to trust in You and not be anxious about anything (Philippians 4:6-7). May he find rest and peace in You. Amen.”

Pray for his role as a father (Ephesians 6:4)

“Lord, I pray for my husband as a father. Help him not to provoke our children to anger but to bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. Give him wisdom and patience as he guides and nurtures them. May he model godliness and integrity in all his interactions with them. Amen.”

Pray for his purity and integrity (Proverbs 4:23)

“God, I pray for my husband’s purity and integrity. Help him to guard his heart above all else, for it determines the course of his life. Give him the strength to resist temptation and to flee from sexual immorality. May he be a man of his word, living with honesty and transparency in all his dealings. Amen.”

Pray for his emotional well-being (Philippians 4:6-7)

“Heavenly Father, I lift up my husband’s emotional well-being to You. I pray that he would not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present his requests to You. May Your peace, which transcends all understanding, guard his heart and his mind in Christ Jesus. Amen.”

How to pray for your husband

One powerful way to pray for your husband is to use Scripture as your guide. As you read the Word of God, let it shape your prayers. Pray for God’s promises and truth over your husband’s life. For example, pray Ephesians 6:10-18 over him, asking God to help him put on the full armor of God and stand firm in the faith.

Another way to pray for your husband is to be specific and consistent. Keep a prayer journal where you can write down your husband’s needs and your prayers for him. As you pray, watch for God’s answers and record them as a testament to His faithfulness.

Remember, the most powerful prayers are those that align with God’s will. As you pray for your husband, ask God to show you how to love and support him in a way that pleases Him. Trust that God is at work in your husband’s life, even when you can’t see it.

As you pray for your husband, it’s important to remember that prayer is not just about asking God for things, but it’s also about aligning your heart with His and growing in your own faith. When you commit to praying for your husband daily, you are also committing to deepening your own relationship with God.

Strengthen and Enhance Your Prayers

One way to strengthen your prayer life is to pray with your husband. Set aside time each day to pray together, even if it’s just for a few minutes. This can be a powerful way to connect with each other and with God. As you pray together, you’ll learn more about each other’s needs and struggles, and you’ll be able to support each other more effectively.

Another way to enhance your prayers for your husband is to pray with other wives. Consider joining a prayer group or starting one of your own. When you pray with other women who share your desire to lift up their husbands, you’ll find encouragement, accountability, and inspiration. You can share prayer requests, celebrate answered prayers, and learn from each other’s experiences.
