Praying for Your Husband from Head to Toe

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Ephesians 6:12 NIV).

When God created man, He stepped back and said: “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him,” (Genesis 2:18).

The Hebrew word translated “helper” that is used for woman is ezer. It is derived from the Hebrew word used of God and the Holy Spirit, “azar.” Both mean “helper” – one who comes alongside to aid, assist or rescue. Ezer appears twenty-one times in the Old Testament. Two times it is used of the woman in Genesis 2, and sixteen times it is used of God or Yahweh as the helper of His people.

The remaining three references appear in the books of the prophets, who use it in reference to military aid. Interestingly the sixteen times the word, ezer, is used of God, it also carries military connotations.  “O LORD, be my helper,” David cried (Psalm 30:10 NASB). “My father’s God was my helper; he saved me from the sword of the Pharaoh,” Moses proclaimed (Exodus 18:4).  Clearly, the word “ezer” holds a place of great honor. It is a portrait of great strength.

Theologians William Mounce, in his Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words paints a poignant picture:

With so many references to God as our helper, it is obvious that an ezer is in no way inferior to the one who receives help. This is important because this is the word that God uses in Genesis 2:18 when he says about Adam, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” God then forms Eve as his ezer.  According to God’s design, therefore, the man and the woman, the husband and the wife, have been designed by God to stand together and help each other fight the battles of life. And God is there as the divine ezer to fight with them.”

I was surprised to discover that even the Proverbs 31 woman, this woman who has been showcased as a godly role model for centuries, was referred to in military terms. “An excellent wife, who can find?” the passage begins. “Her worth is far above jewels” (Proverbs 31:10 NASB). The New International Version calls her “a wife of noble character.” The Amplified Bible describes her as “a capable, intelligent, and virtuous woman.” The Hebrew word that is translated “excellent” or “virtuous” can also mean “wealthy, prosperous, valiant, boldly courageous, powerful, mighty warrior.” Did you catch that? “Mighty warrior.”

I’m not suggesting you replace your jeans with battle fatigues, brooms with rifles, and stilettos with army boots. But I am suggesting that God has given you an amazing role as a prayer warrior on your husband’s behalf.

There is a spiritual battle going on all around us, and Paul urges us to be prepared, armed and alert. Paul wrote to the Corinthians: “Though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds,” (2 Corinthians 10:3-4).

In my book, What God Really Thinks about Women, I noted the following:

God did not create woman simply because man was lonely or needed a reproductive partner. He intentionally fashioned woman to complete man-to love with him, work with him, rule with him, live life with him, procreate with him, and to fight alongside him. She was a female image bearer in this mysterious union of marriage. [tweetherder][/tweetherder]Woman was and is a warrior called to fight alongside man in the greatest battle that was yet to come-a battle not fought on the battlefield with guns, but on our knees in prayer.

Through prayer, the enemy’s plans are intercepted. Through prayer, the powers, principalities, and authorities of Satan’s realm are defeated. Through prayer, the power and provision of God flows into the lives of His people.

Jesus said he has given you power and authority to “overcome all the power of the enemy,’ (Luke 10:19). “The one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world,” (1 John 4:4). You are an ezer, uniquely fashioned and supernaturally equipped to pray for your husband.

Let’s Pray:

In today’s prayer, I’ll lead you through how to pray for your husband from head to toe.

Dear Lord, today I pray for my husband, from head to toe.

  • His Head –That he will look to You as Lord of his life. (1 Corinthians 11:13)
  • His Mind – That he will have the mind of Christ and think as the Holy Spirit would lead him and not the flesh. (1 Corinthians 2:16)
  • His Eyes –That You will keep his eyes from temptation and that he will turn his eyes from sin. (Matthew 6:13, Mark 9:47)
  • His Ears – That he will hear Your still small voice instructing him. (1 Kings 19:12, Psalm 32:8)
  • His Mouth – That his words will be pleasing to You. (Proverbs 19:14)
  • His Neck –That he will humble himself before You and be strong, courageous, and careful to do everything written in Your Word so that he will be prosperous and successful. (James 4:10, Joshua 1:8-9)
  • His Heart-That he will love and trust You with his whole heart. (Deuteronomy 6:5;  Proverbs 3:5)
  • His Arms-That You will be his strength. (Psalm 73:26)
  • His Hands-That he will enjoy the work of his hands and see it as a gift from You. (Ecclesiastes 3:13, 5:19)
  • His Ring Finger – That he will be true to our marriage vows and that our love will never wane. (Proverb 3:3; Malachi 2:16)
  • His Legs – That he will stand firm in his faith and not waver. (Psalm 62:6)
  • His feet – That You will order his steps and that he will walk in Your truth. (Proverbs 4:25, Psalm 26:3)

What Do You Think? 

Consider asking your husband for some specific ways that you can pray for him today.

Look up each of the Scripture references above and make the prayer for your husband specific to his particular needs.

Find one friend with whom you can pray for your marriage. Commit to pray for each other’s marriage on a regular basis.

    Hello, I’m not married and have been reading your devotionals about love and marriage they are very good. I may meet someone someday so these devotionals will help me if I ever get married again. I’m divorced, and had a terriable marriage my spouse abused me and our marriage was based on a lie. We both made mistakes im not putting all the blame on him. He told me he was a born again Christian however, I feel he wasn’t because it was the way he treated me plus ,he was in denial which I had pretty much known that he was a gay man. I really feel very sad for him because he chose to be that way. In the past I never really prayed much for him, and I know I should have. having gone through all this instead of getting closer to the Lord actually I drew away from him, and started living like the world. Oh, I knew I was doing wrong until one day I came to a point because being so miserable that I needed to get my life right back with God. I needed to get on my knees and ask God to forgive me for all the wrong I did. Praise God he does, I been single since 2002 , and like I said maybe someday God will truely bring a person into my life who loves the Lord with all his heart, mind, and soul. Right now the Good Lord is my main man of course for the rest of my life. But, someday he may bring someone else if that is his will for me it will happened. Life is great oh yes there may be some health issues plus getting older now. However, that wont get in the way of my meeting someone someday. It’s so much better to live and have Christ in your heart then being without him. The closer I get the more love pours out of my heart for him and others too. Praise God!!!

    I have been praying everyday for my husband for the past 3 1/2 years. We have been separated off and on and he has turned away from the Lord. I pray the God will touch his heart and that he will come back to the Lord.

    Thank you, Sharon!

    Your devoional really spoke to me this morning. My husband will celebrate his 50th birthday without me this weekend because I am headed out of town to speak at a women’s retreat with my church. I know that God has called me to attend this retreat and I am going with the blessing of my husband. BUT… I have felt so guilty!! I have “called in the troops” so to speak as I have covered him with prayer and asked each of our grown children to call their dad, to take him to lunch or dinner, and to otherwise help him have a wonderful weekend without me. I will also leave him a copy of the above prayer inside the card I plan to give him, letting him know that, though I am not here celebrating with him, he is in my heart and on my mind.
    Thank you for blessing me today!!

    In HIS Love,
    Susan Martin

    I haven’t prayed today for him but for a pretty long time I prayed diligently for him from head to toe literally every day. I think I must have consistently done this for many, many months. I think I got “tired” and just stopped. But G-d is faithful and my eyes are witnessing changes….. not just changes in him – sometimes more so it’s changes in me. This post has reminded me that I need to still pray. A tool I feel is very helpful in doing this is a little prayer book by Sylvia Gunter called “For The Family.” I hope ot was OK to share that.

  40. Kim February 21, 2013 at 2:13 pm #

    I’ve got my ex covered….I have been praying this for my former husband, Steve, since Dec.29, 2012.
    I had found it in an earlier post from you (Feb.2010) and liked it and had saved a copy of it. I see you’ve added the ring finger since then and I like that too!

    My husband, of 29 yrs. left me in July 2010 and sought divorce. In my brokenness, I surrendered to God and He began a wonderful transformation in my life, but still my husband did not want to reconcile. He had drifted away from God and I had finally allowed God into my life, completely. Previous to our separation and divorce, I claimed to be a Christian, but had never read the Bible, didn’t have a prayer life, didn’t truly live like a Chistian and never knew about a personal relationship with Jesus. Wow! God opened my eyes and I have been born again! Praise God!

    I continue to pray for Steve’s salvation and that he would come to have a personal relationship with the Lord. I also sent Steve the head to toe prayer and told him that although he was no longer my husband, that I was praying this for him. I also pray that Steve would come back to me and that we would have a brand new marriage with Christ at the center. God’s will and not mine be done.

    Thank you for your devotion and all that you do to bring women to know Christ more completely.
    In Him,
    Jill

    I’ve been separated from him for the past 5 years, almost, but I’ve still got him covered. I wasn’t in the Lord then and its difficult to undo the awful things you have said and done. Only God can do that and thats what I pray for. Please keep me in prayer!

    I love this idea to pray for my future husband. It is a cute way but yet so meaningful too. I am sure to copy this and put it somewhere where I can remember to do it often. The idea of asking him if people are married is a great idea too. I will try and remember that when I get married. Thanks for the idea! 🙂

    Last May my husband told me that he does not want to be married to me any more… to say I have been devastated is a understatement. To be honest I have barely survived… only by the prayers of others and God holding on to me in the worst moments I am still living and desiring to be healed and whole in God. We are still separated and my husband has been very definite about wanting to divorce me in May this year.
    I have not read any of the February devotionals on marriage as it has been way to painful but today your title caught my eye before I could hit the delete button. I can’t help but pray that prayer for him!

    I”VE GOT HIM COVERED! My husband is NOT a believer and I struggle with that daily. I pray for him daily.
    I would have posted yesterday but my Grammie went home with The Lord yesterday morning. When I think of the peace and joy she is now experiencing it frustrates me with my husband’s unbelief. I want him to be in Heaven with me one day.
    I’ll keep praying!
    Thanks for this devotion Sharon!

    Sharon, My husband and I have known each other since the 8th grade. We began dating after high school and have been together as a couple for 22 years and married for 15. He is a pastor of 3 churches and we have 3 amazing children. He has many duties related to his ministry and I we don’t see him often and Satan has used that space apart to cause us to live separate lives many times. So often we feel as if we have no connection to each other any longer and over the last year I was wondering why I continue to do this when I feel single so much of the time. However, we continue to serve a very BIG, STRONG GOD who answers the prayers of the faithful. I came across your book “Becoming the Woman of His Dreams” and want to be just that! I’m reading it now. I took the 14 day Romance Challenge and found that my husband is reading and carrying out the Love Dare. We are falling in love all over again. Thank you for following God’s lead and ministering to women’s hearts this way. Thank you also for being bold enough to say the things we don’t want to hear, but need to hear. I am one grateful, incredibly happy girl! Praise God!

    I’m not currently married, but I have been praying intensely for a specific Christian man I dated for a year and a half. We had discussed getting married several months ago but there has been a big pull back on his part. However, I continue to pray for him regularly that God would bring healing in his life. I feel this is very serious business and that’s why I continue to pray for him. This is a great blog and the prayer is excellent. I also like two books by Stormie Omartian, The Power of a Praying Wife, and Praying Through the Difficult Issues of Marriage. I recommend them to many friends and use them myself.

  190. Dawn Crespo March 1, 2013 at 5:15 pm #

    My husband Rafael and I have been separated since Aug. 16. He says he doesn’t want a divorce but is doing absolutely nothing to prevent it. I haven’t seen him since mid Jan. or spoken to him since Feb. 4th. I pray for him daily and sometimes call him and just pray over the phone for him in a message.
    I know God is moving and I pray He shows up soon in a BIG WAY!
    Divorce is not what I want but can’t stay married to a man who refuses to communicate with me and just wants to run and hide.
    Please cover us in prayer that God’s will be done in both our lives and in our marriage.
    There are 3 children involved…..my 14 yr old daughter and his 2 sons 9 & 3.
    We are newly married and just after you could say all hell broke loose and Satan thru everything he could at us…..I know God can restore all Satan destroyed, repair and mend broken hearts and reconcile our marriage and relationship – that it can be greater than it ever could have been.
    Many Blessings!
    Dawn

    Since I started praying the list you have to pray for my husband, I am starting to notice that the bad language, although he is a Christian and I’ve been trying to get him to stop for two years, is starting to go! Praise God!

  192. Deb March 2, 2013 at 5:09 am #

    “I’ve got him covered!” as well as my son in law and my future son in law. I will try to remember to continually pray this prayer for all of the men in my life and my daughter’s lives.

  193. Lillie March 4 March 4, 2013 at 12:13 pm #

    Hello,

    Recently my husband decided he wanted out of our 17 year marriage. I am in a place of denial and disbelief. My husband is a Man of God, and is a Minister of Music at our church. I recently have been seeing signs of another woman, from dinner receipts to a valentines day gift for her. I am praying for my husband through the Word of God and with the help of Sharon’s book “Pray for your Husband from Head to Toe”. This book is nothing like any other book I’ve read relating to praying for your husband. I try to encourage my self daily by speaking the Word over my life, but sometimes it seems like it is not enough.

    Hi Sharon,
    Just wanted to let you know how much your book,”Prayingforyourhusband from head to toe” has impacted my life! I have prayed the prayers for thirty days and now am going through it again. Not only am I seeing changes in my husband, I am seeing God change my heart as well. I would love for you to write a book on praying for sons and daughters. Prayer is such a powerful weapon against the enemy that unfortunately is what we come to last,when it should be the first place we go! Thank you for reminding me of that truth again 🙂
