Praying for My Husband

One of the most important roles a wife can have is to pray for her husband. Jesus said, “Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven” (Matthew 18:19 NIV).

THIS IS IMPORTANT: Because we never want to embarrass our husbands or betray a confidence, all requests will be approved before they are posted. Some may be edited to remove any details that would embarrass him or dishonor him in any way. We don’t need to share all the details…God knows every single one of them!

Here are a couple of reminders from my book, Praying for Your Husband from Head to Toe:

“Prayer is not for twisting God’s arm to convince Him to do your bidding. He already has your best interest in mind. He already has your husband’s best interests in mind. Amazingly, He invites you to play a part in the miracle of making your husband into the man He created him to be.”

“Prayer is how God chose to engineer the flow of His power and activity from the spiritual realm into the physical realm. Prayer is the conduit through which God’s power is released and His will is brought to ‘earth as it in in heaven.'”

“Through prayer, the Enemy’s plans are intercepted; the principalities and authorities are defeated. Through prayer, the power and provision of God flows into the lives of His people.”

Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God beside You, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him” (Isaiah 64:4 NIV).

I invite you to leave your prayer requests for your husband below. As you do please pray for the entry below your name. You may even want to go through the list and pray for several.

I can’t wait to join you in prayer for that man of yours! Thank you for trusting me and your sisters in Christ to join you.

    Dear sisters in prayer. Please pray for my husband to receive the Holy Spirit. That God may send him a spiritual ambush to soften his heart. That he may learn and understand that he can do all things he needs to through Christ who strengthens him and learn to give all the worries he carries on his shoulders to God who conquers all. In Jesus name Imthank you

    Father, God of all possibilities, I come to you to ask you for forgiveness, compassion and love. I thank you for the love of family and what I once shared. Now, at this moment Satan is trying his utmost best to steal, destroy and kill my marriages and families. But God’s power is greater than that of Satan’s.

    Blood of Jesus, cover us with your blood. Bring my husband Ricky to come to know, love and serve you lord. Blood of Jesus, remove any evil force which has a veil over the bodies, mind and spirit of my stray husband that he may come to realize the life that he is living is not of him. May he be uncomfortable in the lifestyle that he is living now?

    Father, touch the lives of those persons whom Satan has brought into our lives to place a wedge between our spouses and our families. Blood of Jesus wash them and cleanse them, so that they too may be uncomfortable living this type of lifestyle. Let them come to realize that they should do unto others what they would like to do unto them.
    Give us, those spouses who are standing and awaiting the return of our spouses to return home. Grant us patience and courage to fight this battle with you at our side, upholding us in the times when we faulted and fail to place our focus on you Lord. May your mind be our mind and may the words that come from our lips be of grace to the hearers.
    Give us peace, love and unity and grant continuance and restoration of our marriage.

    This we ask in your most precious name in Jesus. Amen

    Father God I ask that you watch over Ron as he is working far away and feels like this is the only way he can make money. I. ask that you guard his heart his eyes and protect him from the temptations that are coming daily. Touchy him Lord and awake in his spiritual gifts. Defeat Satan in his life and bring him home to me. Help his father that he may find work at home and that we may finally have a chance to be together as one.

    Beloved Sisters in Christ,
    Pray Colossians 1:9-13 & Matthew 6:33 for my Husband.
    I ask that the Lord God would be His focus day and night and he would please focus on pleasing Him and not man

  13. MaryJo December 12, 2016 at 8:21 am #

    If god is omnipotent, which is self-refuting and contradictory, does this mean that he purposely inflicts this suffering upon you?

    • Sharon Jaynes December 12, 2016 at 11:32 am #

      Sometimes God allows suffering, but it always for our good. Looking through Scripture, sometimes God uses adverse circumstances to draw people back to Himself.

  14. Sandy December 12, 2016 at 11:06 pm #

    Please pray for my husband to accept Christ and to live for Him. My boys need a godly man’s guidance in their lives; their father’s guidance.

    Pray for my husband to realise his need to go back to church/reconnect with God and for God to change his heart and mind towards attending. Also pray for him to receive the help he needs to succeed in all aspects of his life.

    I’m on day 28 of the 30 day challenge. I don’t see God working but I have faith that he is working all things for my good. My husband is having an inappropriate relationship with a lady that works for him. We have discussed it several times and he has made no effort to try to rebuild the trust or respect that has been lost in our marriage due to this. He has asked that I leave our home and I really don’t know what to do. I am praying that God will work in his heart to help save our marriage. I ask that you all pray God’s will be done. I have Jesus so I know I will be ok.

  20. Aletha March 20, 2017 at 9:31 am #

    Please pray for my husband that he will accept Jesus Christ into his life. My husband is confused and does not know what he wants at this time. I ask that you pray that he is no longer double-minded or confused. Pray that God will soften his heart. That he will know that he can do all things through Christ who strengthens him. Please pray that our marriage and family are restored. Satan is trying to steal, kill and destroy our marriage and family. But I know that God is the author and finisher of all things. Pray that my husband will be uncomfortable in the life style he is currently living. Touch those that Satan has brought into his life; place a wedge between them and my husband and that they too will seek God and want Him in their lives. Also pray that I will continue to have strength and peace knowing that our God is working behind the scenes. In Jesus Name, Amen
