Start off the year praying for your husband

Praying for Your Husband

“She does him good….” Proverbs 31:12a
Bless your husband by praying for him!

The Apostle Paul instructed all Christians to pray for one another (Ephesians 6:18). This
includes wives’ responsibility and privilege to pray for their husbands. Earnest prayer for your
husband is good for him, for you and the spiritual health of your home (Proverbs 31:11-12).
Satan desires to destroy your husband, especially his character and his leadership in your
relationship. Trust God through prayer as you daily surrender your husband and marriage to the
Lord’s wise, loving care.

31 Days of Prayer

Day 1
Pray that your husband will grow spiritually and consider his accountability before the Lord.
Pray that he will guard his heart by developing spiritual disciplines—Bible reading and study,
prayer, meditation, scripture memorization, etc. (2 Peter 3:18; Prov. 4:23)

Day 2
Pray that your husband’s relationship with God and His Word will bear fruit in his life. Pray that
he will be a man of wisdom and understanding, fearing the Lord. (Prov. 3:7, 9:10; Ps. 112:1)

Day 3
Pray that your husband will be humble and quick to agree with God about his sin. Pray that his
heart will be tender toward the voice of the Lord. (Ps. 51:2-4; Micah 6:8)

Day 4
Pray that your husband will grow in leadership skills in your relationship— protecting and
providing for you. Pray that he will lead you wisely and love you sacrificially, so that God will
be glorified in your marriage. (Eph. 5:25-29; Col. 3:19)

Day 5
Pray that your husband will be faithful to his wedding vows. Pray that he will have a desire to
cultivate your relationship as a sign of his loyalty and commitment to you, and as a picture of
Christ’s love for the Church. (Prov. 20:6; Gen. 2:24)

Day 6
Pray that your husband will love righteousness and hate wickedness, especially the evils of the
culture. Pray that he will recognize and avoid wickedness in his own life, and if necessary, take a
clear, strong stand against evil. (Prov. 27:12; John 17:15; 1 Cor. 10:12-13)

Day 7
Pray that your husband will safeguard his heart against inappropriate relationships with the
opposite sex. Pray that his heart will be pure and undivided in his commitment to you. (Prov.
6:23-24, 26; Rom. 13:14)

  3. Excellent post & a good reminder for us as wives to keep our husbands in prayer each day..... one of my resolutions this coming year was to offer words of praise more often to my husband and to become more "quiet"..... if you knew me in real life, I am far from a quiet person..... too chatty and all to prone to spurting off my opinions to him! :) A meek a quiet spirit.......

    May the Lord bless you this coming year!


  4. Thank you for the prayers!! I am feeling much better.

    Those are great things to remember to pray. I am going to copy them and do them.

    Love, Prayers and Blessings,


  5. Thanks for asking about "the boys". No news yet on the outcome of the meeting, although Peregrine told us the other day that "Jesus told me deep down in my heart that the people made the right decision and families with kids can adopt!" I hope that it's a prophetic word and we will see the fulfillment of it. I will post something when there is anything to post about it.

    I was really looking forward to bringing the kids to gymnastics on Friday but forgot I have a prenatal appointment that morning. So, we'll have to wait until next time!

    I hope all is well with you and your family. I enjoyed catching up and reading your last few posts.



  6. Haha.. I CAN believe you make your kids read before they eat! Good for you... great for them! I am just starting the Book of Ruth. One of my favourites!
