Nine Prayers to Pray for Your Husband

I fully believe in the power of prayer. I’ve seen God answer prayers, even silly ones, and it is because of His faithfulness that I can pray to the Creator for myself and for my husband. Believe it or not, as godly women, we have a responsibility to pray for our husbands.

Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. – James 5:16

Running out of ways to pray for the man you love? Here’s a list of scriptures you can pray over your husband:

Pray for his relationship with God

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen. – 2 Peter 3:18

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. – Proverbs 4:23

Pray for his role as the head of the home

But I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. – 1 Corinthians 11:3

Pray for his ability to love you deeply

Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers. – 1 Peter 3:7

Pray that your husband would make wise choices

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.  For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other. – Galatians 5:13-15

Pray for your husband’s mind

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.  Do not conform 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 12:1-2

Pray for your husband’s role at work

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. – 1 Corinthians 15:58

Pray that your husband would rely on God when he is stressed

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” – Matthew 11:28-30

Pray for your husband’s power to resist sexual temptation

I belong to my beloved, and his desire is for me. – Song of Songs 7:10

Pray that you will treat your husband with grace, kindness and respect

Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.

She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. – Proverbs 31:11-12
