4 Fervent Prayers for Your Husband

You know fervent prayers are exactly what your husband needs but you are clueless where to begin. That’s why these 10 prayers will equip you to pray!

Life gets so busy that we forget to pray. Maybe we were prayer warriors when we first got married but as time went on (and the relational trials mounted) we neglected to get on our knees, let alone stand in prayer for the man we loved.

You have to keep on your toes in marriage these days because culturally (and sadly so) marriage has lost its traditional standards. We are battling for the sanctity of our marriage and need to be on guard.

4 Fervent Prayers for Your Husband

How we guard our marriage is on our knees.

But honestly, when was the last time you literally GOT ON YOUR KNEES? To be honest, for me its been a while.

There is something about BEING on your KNEES that causes the Evil one to shake in his boots!

The whole concept of marriage was created by God and was His design, for one man and one woman to be together for a lifetime of joys and trials.

It was never intended to be a marriage between a woman and a woman or a man and a man.

In Genesis 2 is the foundation of marriage in the Bible, we are told about the marriage as God intended it to be. In Genesis 2:18 it specifies that marriage is between one man and one woman.

Prayer is so essential to marriage because, without it, the relationship between husband and wife will not be all that God desired it to be.

Prayer is the open admission that without Jesus Christ we can do nothing. When we pray, we express our faith in God’s power as our heart is yearning for more of Him.

In order to strengthen your marriage, you will find these 10 fervent prayers to be helpful in crying out to God as a warrior-woman for your husband.

14 Fervent Prayers for Your Husband

1. Pray that your husband loves God with all his heart, soul, and mind. Luke 10:27

And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:27

Lord, I pray today that you permeate my husband’s heart so that he will love you with all of his heart, soul, strength, and mind. I know often he is too exhausted from working to support our family and his time with You is shortened or non-existent. Yet, Lord, help his thoughts to dwell on You as he drives to work, as he works with unbelievers, and then returns home at the end of the day. Draw his mind to You in unexpected ways as he goes about his duties. Give him strength for all he has to do. Help me to act towards him in ways that encourages him instead of tearing him down. In Jesus Christ’s name, Amen.

2. Pray that your husband stays faithful and from sexual immorality. Philippians 1:25-26

Convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with you all, for your progress and joy in the faith, so that in me you may have ample cause to glory in Christ Jesus, because of my coming to you again. Philippians 1:25-26

Dear Father, I know so many marriages are struggling with their relationship with God and with each other. I fervently pray that my husband will be faithful, first to You, Lord, and then to me. Keep his eyes on You and help and give him strength to not be drawn away by his lusts for another woman. Keep the fires burning in each of our hearts for You and each other so that we are always sexually pure. In Jesus’s name, Amen!

3. Pray that your husband has a strong relationship with you! Hebrews 3:12-13

Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God. 13 But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. Hebrews 3:12-13

Dear Lord, I fervently pray that you keep my husband from slipping into having an unbelieving heart. Keep his heart strong on You, the Living God. Strengthen me to disregard offenses and encourage him in his work and with our family. Help me to continually build him up to be the man you intended him to be so that our relationship in constantly growing stronger each day. In the name of Jesus, Amen!

4. Pray that your husband has wisdom in making decisions. James 1:5

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. James 1:5

Dear Lord, I fervently pray for my dear husband today that he would grow in wisdom. Help him to look to you for each decision he needs to make and not make unwise or foolish choices. Fill me with your Holy Spirit so that I encourage instead of tearing him down or nagging about each issue as it arrises. Give him wisdom in decisions with the children, finances, where he will work and where we live. In the precious Name of Jesus, Amen!

As your husband’s wife, you are his helper and the biggest thing you can do to encourage him is to uphold him in prayer.

Too often we get frustrated and press each issue over and over each day. Let’s instead, bring each issue to our Father and learn to cry out to God with fervent prayers for our man.

  1. Hi I do pray for my husband and I see how God is doing big things in our life. My husband, Patrick is adopted and his adoptive mother is extremely critical. She was and still is quite mean and critical. She did a lot of damage to my sweet husband. He and I have known each other since 1st and 2nd grade but didn’t connect till much later in life. God brought him into my life after my divorce. Patrick is my 2nd marriage but I am his 3rd wife. The good thing is I am completely different from the first 2. First 2 had a lot of similarities of his awful mother. Patrick does his best to love his mother but it is very toxic. She is 86 years old and still can be as mean as ever. But my frustration is with Patrick and his faith. When we started dating I said your faith will get us through anything. So he is a knower of the word but not a doer. He has read the bible 3 times and can quote scripture beautifully. But the second wife was so critical about what he wasn’t doing, or not being enough for her and so on. She used to berate him about being more devoted to God. I have tried to do bible studies with him and I have asked him to help me learn the bible like he knows it. And many other ideas to help us be more Christ centered. We used to pray first thing in the morning and at night. We just did a lot more praying as a whole. Now I kind of feel like he resents me, if I bring any of that up. I will suggest praying before we go to bed sometimes. I want him to take the lead on a lot of this. Maybe I need to be patient because Patrick has never had the chance to take the lead on anything and I am asking and allowing him to do that, in our family. I have seen a lot of changes in him, as far as taking the lead. I also see him struggling with it. His first wife never allowed him to be the head of the house or decision maker regarding his 2 children. She never included him in any decisions with his girls and I am allowing him to take a big role and be a decision maker. I try and send my children, who are teenagers, to him, for some of the decisions. But he and I try to always discuss things. I feel like as a whole we communicate really well. So with all this long information, I want to know how to get Patrick to take the lead in making Christ the center of our home. How can I get him to not resent my ideas or desires to God more in our marriage?

    1. Thank you for sharing Mary Lou. I know your situation is a difficult one. The best thing I can say to you is to pray a lot for Patrick and be the best wife you possibly can be for him. It isn’t an easy thing to be in a marriage when there have been other women married to your husband before you. I know you can be the best for him and that God can draw you into a sweet relationship.
