5 ways to pray for your husband

Whether your marriage is thriving or just hanging on, prayer is powerful not only for changing others' hearts but for aligning our own hearts with the will of God. Let's commit to covering our husbands in prayer.
Write these short Scriptural prayers in your Bible or on a notecard and personalize them to fit your family. Then set a daily alarm on your phone to remind you to pray. Begin by praising the Lord for the good gift of your husband, then turn to a few of these ideas...
  1. For his eyes: Lord, I pray that my husband would fix his eyes on you, the author and perfecter of our faith (Heb. 12:2-3). Open the eyes of his heart to understand your Word, so that he won't be conformed to this world, but will be transformed by the renewing of his mind (Rom. 12:2). Give him the strength to maintain his integrity in all he does.
  2. For his mind: I pray that you would help my husband to cast all his anxieties on you because you care for him (1 Peter 5:7). Lord, help him to take every thought captive that does not align with your Word, and protect him from temptation and pride (2 Cor. 10:5). Bless his thought life with peace.
  3. For his hands: Father, bless and establish the work of my husband's hands (Psalm 90:17). Help him to be diligent in the work you've set before him, and to be generous toward those in need. Guide him in regards to stewarding our finances and resources well.
  4. For his feet: Lord, equip my husband to lead our family. Help him to walk in the light and allow his priorities to align with your Word (John 12:35-36). Help him to run toward all that is right and just. 
  5. For his heart: Lord, help my husband to comprehend your deep and abiding love for him. I pray that the words of his mouth and the meditations of his heart would be acceptable in your sight (Psalm 19:14). Give him courage today, reminding him that you will never leave or forsake him (Deut. 31:6).
I pray these prompts are a launching pad for your own prayers!
