prayers for your husband

After posting prayers for your children i thought it would be wise to post prayers for our husbands! I will continue this until all 31 days are listed. For now here are the first 7. (I got this from the revive our hearts website)


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 work hard to provide for his family, to the best of hie ability. Pray that the character qualities necessary will continue to grow-persistence, decisiveness, strength, an analytical mind, organizational skills. positive relationships with people, determination etc (Rom 12:11, 1 Cor 15:58)
