10 Prayers to Pray Over Your Husband
Sep 3, 2017 by Rachel Wojo
Do you spend time each day praying for your husband? Determining what prayers to pray over your husband can be an eye-opening experience. Years ago, I decided to consistently pray for my husband. While that sounds really mature and wonderful, the choice was a selfish endeavor, though I thought I was being helpful. In my immaturity, I wanted a few things to change in my marriage and so I called on the Lord to change them. Funny how I discovered the one who needed to change was ME! Ever been there?
Through God’s work in my heart, I discovered the importance of praying for my husband and the power of praying for him. Over the years, God has shown me his work in my marriage through prayer time and time again. Prayer is a life-changing, uninterrupted connection to our heavenly Father and oh how he loves to hear his children pray! Check out these 10 prayers to pray over your husband using God’s Word.
- Pray for his work.
“Lord, I pray that You would bless my husband’s work. That he would be diligent and prosperous. That You would give him wisdom and discernment. God, I pray You would give him strength to walk the opportunities you provide. Thank you, Lord.”
Do you see a person skilled in his work? He will stand in the presence of kings. He will not stand in the presence of the unknown. Proverbs 22:29 CSB
- Pray for his heart, soul, and mind.
“Father, I praise You for my husband, Your unique creation. Please guard his heart and mind, Jesus. Protect him from temptation and fill him up with the good things he needs. You’ve promised to fill his soul with what he needs and I ask You to do just that.”
For he has satisfied the thirsty and filled the hungry with good things. Psalm 107:9 CSB
- Pray for healing from the past.
“God, would You heal the wounds of my husband’s heart? You’ve promised healing to those who submit to You. Lord, please smooth the scars of past hurts and brokenness. May Your healing permeate his being, inside and out.”
Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed; save me, and I will be saved, for you are my praise. Jeremiah 17:14 CSB
- Pray for courage.
“Lord, You are gracious and merciful, yet You are all-powerful and understanding. This world can be a fearful place and I pray that You would give my husband courage. Lord, infuse his character with courage for daily decisions and the difficult ones as well.”
The fear of the Lord leads to life; one will sleep at night without danger. Proverbs 19:23 CSB
- Pray for his leadership.
“God, You have provided Your Word and I am so grateful. May Your Word guide my husband as the leader of our home. May his leadership skills be empowered by your wisdom. I trust that You will lead in his hand and heart in our relationship, his work, our home, community and church.”
Now if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God—who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly—and it will be given to him. James 1:5 CSB
- Pray for wisdom in finances.
“Lord, money yields the greatest potential to cause problems in a home. Please give my husband wisdom as he seeks to honor You with finances. I praise You for the blessings You’ve provided and I pray that You would help him, help us, to always honor You first.”
Keep your life free from the love of money. Be satisfied with what you have, for he himself has said, I will never leave you or abandon you. Hebrews 13:5 CSB
- Pray for a heart for the Lord.
“Father, please give my husband a pure heart for You. May he seek to love You and trust You with everything he has and is. Protect him from opinions intended to sway him from Your Word.”
Don’t work only while being watched, as people-pleasers, but as slaves of Christ, do God’s will from your heart. Ephesians 6:6 CSB
- Pray for his speech.
“Father, in a day when the world speaks with complete corruption, keep my husband’s words pure before You. I pray that he would use his words just as You would have him to. I praise You for his personality and pray for purposeful conversations in our marriage.”
No foul language should come from your mouth, but only what is good for building up someone in need, so that it gives grace to those who hear. Ephesians 4:29 CSB
- Pray for his friendships.
“Lord, I pray that You would provide encouraging friendships for my husband. That he would know he is never alone because You are with him, but I ask for others to speak into his life and sharpen him as he sharpens them.”
Iron sharpens iron, and one person sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17 CSB
- Pray for your husband to be a good father.
“God, I thank You that You are the good, good Father. Would you help my husband’s parenting to reflect You? May his children know Your heavenly love personally and experience it through their earthly father.”
Fathers, don’t stir up anger in your children, but bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4 CSB
This list of 10 Scripture-based prayers is a perfect place to start exploring how to pray for your husband. If you know someone struggling or feeling disconnected in their marriage, share these powerful prayers with them and use this article to encourage their hearts. If you know someone who longs to strengthen her marriage and build up her husband,these prayers would be the perfect tool to do so!

Complete Household Renovations for the Fall of 2015
This fall my family will be doing some major renovations to our home. We will be converting a garage and moving my studio into another part of the house. I am so excited to finally have a plan that will help our home function and look much better!!
My first steps are getting all planned and organized. I have always used planners and loved the efficiency they allow me to organize my thoughts/plans. I have also love the creative side of decorating and for many years creating and making my own planner pages.
This year with all that has been happening I have enjoyed the quick ease of the a lovely planner by Discovery House (Our Daily Bread). It has been a simple nice size planner I have used as my main personal planner. I have also LOVED a lovely Limelife Planner for my “work” planner. This planner contains all my Josephine’s Designs plans/orders and also my homeschooling planning. I have also loved all the midori travelers, Mom’s Agenda, etc. for journaling and prayer journals.
I have recently compiled a new system for my portable planners. I will share this new system at the end of the series of articles. This will also give me more time to develop it more fully. 🙂
This is the introductory post of what is to come. I will be sharing a planner each week and then in the end share my new portable system!! 🙂 After that I will gladly share how all the planning will…Lord willing, manifest itself in the renovations of our home. 🙂
I am excited to share all that I have learned in my journey and hopefully these will encourage you in yours!! 🙂
Have a wonderful week in the Lord,
Hello Dear Friends,
Do you do a major clean/reorg after periods of major crafting?
Today begins early Spring cleaning/organization of my office/studio. You know…keep, give, throw away or move to another space. After all the holiday crafting fun, I need a big clean out/reorg. I always have more plans than time to make all the projects each year at Christmas!! As a result I then must clean out, organize and pack away all the supplies not needed….for now. 🙂 I usually have this done by the end of December, but with all the travel over the holidays that went well into January…I am running a bit behind.
Today began the pulling everything out and off the shelves. OK, can you hear crazy serious reorg happening? Tomorrow I will be moving the furniture and reloading/reorganizing all supplies!! I’m sooooo excited!! I love this part!! I literally find goodies I forgot I have!! I am genuinely able to “shop my studio” afterwards!!! 😉 This process really gets my creativity a-going!! FUN!!!
I also LOVE to plan the arrangement!! Literally with every move from house to house throughout my marriage, I draw serious diagrams with full explanations. I LOVE THIS!! I am such a nut!! I genuinely LOVE pulling out the graph paper tablet, ruler, tape measure and pencil/eraser!!! I love this part so much that I carry this tablet everywhere I go to think and plan. Like today, when I was waiting to get my hair cut…out it came as I studied the plans. It is so much fun to dream of what it can and/or will be!! Yes, even as a little girl I LOVED to redesign my room!! Once a year my Mom would let me pick out a new bedspread and sheet set. I always was super excited!! It was then the major moving around of all my furniture would take place. All my furniture was very big and very heavy. I still don’t know how I moved it all by myself…but I did!! And I absolutely LOVED the entire redecorating/reorganizing process!! It was fun, fun, fun!! I still feel the same way!!
The main room I change constantly is my office/studio. Mainly because it is a small space that is used daily. I have allot of materials and I am always looking for the most efficient storage and use-ability. It has been a multi purpose room up until today. I am now taking all my educational/teaching materials out and storing them in another part of the house. Therefore…truly studio/office now!! YAY!!! 🙂
For the fun part…today I found these great little baskets at Target in the Dollar Spot. When I brought them home and showed my youngest I shared that they remind me of when I was in school as a little girl. I explained how we used baskets similar in elementary as our make shift storage of our books and supplies and then later in gym class for our uniforms/clothes. Sooooo cute!! Not only will they perfectly fit my shelves , they bring back sweet memories to boot!! 🙂 There were only so many available and…you know it, I bought all I could!!
(HINT: Always measure before you buy. Sometimes items do not give measurements. For instance, I forgot my tape measure I carry in my purse for project purchases. So I just walked over the office supply area and used a ruler. Voila!! )
Well, it’s time to get back to work!! Keep checking back and when all is set up, I will share pictures of the finished studio/office!! 🙂
Have a wonderful evening…hi, ho…hi, ho it’s back to work I go!! 😉
Hello Dear Friends,
I just wrote an article and my computer glitched somehow and it didn’t save. So as I rethink the previous article, I see the blessing of possibly something a bit different.
I have been busy, busy, busy working on a family project, finishing up all the new mini album kits in my Etsy Store (KwithJDesigns), dealing with a computer that needs my Sweet Husband’s genius touch for a little repair work, helping my youngest with Latin, going through all the new inventory that has come in in the last week or so and well just being a wife and Mom. I have also been researching and purchasing new materials for a new article on my other blog (HealthyLiving4Him.wordpress.com) It’s an organizational article. With so many different things going on in our family as well as in my world of home, property and my little business…I am enjoying the joy of getting all organized.
As you can hear in my writing…we have been busy. Like all of you, we go through the holidays working as fast as we can to get everything done we desire on our list. My list…maybe like some of y’all’s is always a bit long. So after the rush I have stacks of supplies…well honestly boxes of supplies for all my hopes and dreams for Christmas crafting. I am honestly set for the next 5 years of crafting for my family and friend’s gifts if I didn’t buy another thing!! 🙂 But none the less it is all still there. Looking me in the eyes…daring me to try to store it!! And now with all the wonderful Spring/Summer supplies coming in…I now have to do something!!
So “Today is a New Day”!!! It is time to grab that bull by the horns and get busy cleaning up, organizing and getting all working in a much more efficient manner. I need organization at it’s best. With such a small space I need the ultimate efficiency in this room. I am so thankful to have this room…well I kinda commandeered it. It used to be our dining room. It was used on special occasions and as time went by I slowly took the room over until this last Summer I took the table and chairs out (the china hutch had been moved a couple of years prior) and made it my office/studio. In my other blog (HealthyLiving4Him.wordpress.com), I recently wrote about adjusting and learning to “bloom where I was planted” in our out in the country older farmhouse. It is a lovely home and I am so thankful to the Lord for it!! But there are times I honestly miss my huge newly built home that was in a large city. I don’t miss the city except when I need something quick and easy at a store and it’s now at least an hour away. 🙂 And I honestly LOVE the quiet of our little country life. Life seems so much more real here. There is life and sometimes death on a farm that make you stop and realize the Lord’s plans are so much more than our own. And in that blog…I come to the realization I can make this home work and not look back!!
So all this to say, as I look at my challenge before me…Today is a New Day!! And in the words of our Lord…this is the day that the Lord has made…I will be glad and rejoice in it!! So my major reorg begins. My Sweet Husband travels next week for work. We will be tied up as well…so today the planning begins. I will be pulling everything out and clearing everything out…Lord willing. But how exciting to again, find all the gems in the drawers and shelves I have forgotten are in there. To find a better spot for them to be used more readily. And to be the good steward the Lord needs me to be of all these supplies for my little business!! So exciting!!!
I hope somewhere in all this…you can find encouragement in your spaces of your home. May we all be so well prepared for what lies ahead of us that we can be ready at any time to do all as if unto the Lord. That is my goal in preparing this work space in my home. It is a place filled with joy, fun and whimsy!! A place that needs order and easy access so that I may enjoy doing all that is before me and blessing all that come in or receive what comes out of this space in my home!!
So after all the investigation of planning tools…here begins the first planning project of the year!! FUN!!!
May your day and your life be filled with the joy of the Lord,
