Praying for your husband is one of the most powerful things you can do as a wife. In fact, praying together is a great way to cultivate intimacy. Not only that, there is a sense of safety, peace, and freedom that gets released when you both pray together. The bible says, “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” - Matthew 18:20 NIV and “‘Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven’”.- Matthew 18:19 NIV. With Bible verses as powerful as these, it makes sense why God created marriage and why it is imperative that you pray for your husband. Praying for your husband can either make or break your marriage. Trust me, I’ve been there. In the course of my marriage, I’ve learned 3 powerful ways to pray for my husband that I’d like to share with you.
Pray for his role in your family and marriage: My Father in Heaven. Hallowed be your name. I intercede for my husband and pray that you bless him to become the provider that you’ve called him to be. That he realizes himself as the man that he has always wanted to be and the man that you created him to be. Any belief, evil script, stronghold, and generational curse that is holding him back, blocking him, or preventing him from realizing himself or boldly claiming his rightful inheritance on this Earth, according to your riches and glory, I ask that you break those chains, cast them out, and deliver him from them right now in Jesus’ name. Father God, any belief or stronghold that is blocking him from allowing himself to be a man of God, a godly husband, and a godly father, I pray that you break them and release him from their influence. Please bless my husband with knowledge, wisdom, understanding, and discernment to be the husband and father that you have called him to be. Bless and protect our marriage from all temptations, from all demonic influences, and people and circumstances that will try to break what we have. Please bless me with the knowledge, understanding, wisdom, and discernment to protect his heart, be sensitive to his needs, and take care of him as you have called me to take care of him. Help me to grow in my understanding of him, his nature, and respect his authority as husband, and leader of our home. Father God, thank you for my husband and thank you for this blessing that is our marriage and our family. Thank you for all the ways that you have blessed him to be able to provide for us, and for the ways you show up for us every single day.
Pray for his health, and wellbeing: Father God, please bless my husband’s health. Purge and remove from him any desire to want to abuse his body, and neglect his health. Bless him with a strong desire to take care of his health, eat clean and healthy, be physically fit and active, and respect his own needs. Bless me with the wisdom, knowledge, energy, and discernment to support him in his fitness goals, and health. Please guard my husband’s mind and place on him the Helmet of Salvation and purge from him anything that does not allow him to walk with a spirit of power, love, and of a sound mind. Bless my husband’s health, mental, and emotional wellbeing. Heal his heart from what needs to be healed, and bless him with a spirit of compassion, love, forgiveness, mercy, understanding to move past his hurts and realize himself fully as the man you called him to be. Remove from him any thing, relationship, or influence that is destructive, and bless him with Godly friendships, relationships, and influences in Jesus’ name. Surround him with a network of Godly, God fearing men who are striving for a better life and a deeper relationship with you and believe in praying for one another. Bless him with a God fearing, Godly mentor in life and in business.
Pray for his relationship with God and Godly calling: God, finally, please bless my husband with a greater sense of your presence. May he experience the sweetness of your love. May he be able to allow himself to rely on you for all of his needs, and open his heart to trust you more. May you bless him with a spirit of faith and remove from him any unbelief in your power, in your glory, in your limitless love for him, and that your will is good. May you heal his heart in anyway that needs to be healed for him to fully trust in you. Bless his heart to experience your peace that passeth all understanding and your daily mercies and mini-miracles. May you open his mind and heart to accept and receive all that this life has to offer him in Jesus’ name and help him to start living for you. Guide me Lord, in any way that I can support him or help him to do that. Bless my husband, Father God, to elevate all men around him and to be a light and a blessing to those who know him.
I hope that these prayers bless you and your family today. let us know how you like to pray for your husband.
