Prayers For Husbands
Since praying for our husbands is EXTREMELY important, especially when we’re standing for marriage restoration, Proverbs 21:1 is VERY reassuring because it says The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD; he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases. And we can’t let ANYTHING we see or hear convince us otherwise; even our husbands’ own actions and words because Jeremiah 10:23 tells us I know, O LORD, that a man’s life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps. That’s confirmed again in Proverbs 16:9, which says In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps. Proverbs 20:24 even says A man’s steps are directed by the LORD. How then can anyone understand his own way? So speak the Word of God and life into the restoration of your marriage and use the following restoration prayers to release God’s awesome power to save, mold and transform your husband into the godly man you desire as you stand in faith and obedience on the power and promise of His Word for the full restoration of your marriage and family.
Romans 4:17 (NLT)
Dear Lord, I give you praise and honor that _____’s mind is steadfast because he trusts in You, and that You will always keep him in perfect peace. Isaiah 26:3
And I thank You that he will always listen to You and live in safety and at ease, without fear of harm or evil. Proverbs 1:33
I give You praise, Lord, that _____ is blessed, and does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. Thank You that he delights in Your law and meditates on Your Word day and night, and that he is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. And thank You that whatever he does prospers.
I thank You, Lord, that _____ does not forget what Your Word teaches and that he keeps Your commands in his heart, prolonging his life for many years and bringing him prosperity. Thank You that love and faithfulness never leave him because they are bound around his neck and written in his heart. Thank you for always blessing him with favor and a good reputation, and that he trust in You with all his heart and does not rely on his own understanding. I thank You that he acknowledges You in all his ways and that You make his path straight. Proverbs 3:1-6
Thank You that my husband accepts Your Word and stores up Your commands in his heart, and turns his ear to wisdom and applies his heart to understanding. Thank You that he calls out for insight and understanding; looking for it as for silver and searching for it as for hidden treasure. And I give praise that he understands the fear of You, LORD, and finds Your knowledge because You give wisdom, and from Your Word comes knowledge and understanding. Proverbs 2:1-6
So he will always understand what is right and just and fair, and he understands every good path. May wisdom and knowledge always be in his heart and pleasant to his soul, and may discretion and understanding always protect and guard him.
Father, may _____ always keep Your commands and never forsake Your teaching. Bind them upon his heart forever; fasten them around his neck. When he walks, let them
guide him; when he sleeps, let them watch over him; when he awakes, let them speak to him. For Your commands are a lamp, Your teaching is a light, and the corrections of discipline are the way to life; keeping him from the immoral woman, from the smooth tongue of the wayward wife. Let him not lust in his heart after her beauty or let
her captivate him with her eyes, for the prostitute would reduce him to a loaf of bread, and the adulteress would prey upon his very life. Proverbs 6:20-26
And I thank You that Your wisdom saves my husband from the ways of wicked people, from anyone whose words are perverse, who leave the straight paths to walk in dark ways, who delight in doing wrong and rejoice in the perverseness of evil, whose paths are crooked and who are devious in their ways. And thank You that it saves him from the adulteress, from a wayward wife with seductive words, who has left the partner of her youth and ignored the covenant she made before You. She would lead him down to destruction because none who go to her return or attain the paths of life. Therefore, I thank You for leading him to walk in the ways of good men and keeping to the paths of the righteous.
Thank You, Lord, that _____ will always respond to Your rebuke, and that You pour out Your heart to him and make Your thoughts known to him. Thank You that he never rejects You when You call, and that he always gives heed when You stretch out Your hand. Thank You that my husband does not ignore Your advice or fail to accept Your rebuke, and that You will never laugh if he experiences disaster, or mock if calamity overtakes him.
Thank You, Lord, for filling him with the knowledge of Your will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding, and that he lives a life worthy of You and pleases You in every way. And thank You that he is bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of You, being strengthened with all power according to Your glorious might, and for his great endurance and patience. Thank You that he joyfully gives thanks to You, Lord, because You have qualified us to share the inheritance in Your kingdom of light. You have rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son You love, in Whom we have redemption and forgiveness of our sins. For by Him all things were created, all things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, all things were created by Him and for Him. Colossians 1:9-16
For this reason, I kneel before You, Father, and pray that out of Your glorious riches, You will strengthen _____ with power through your Spirit in his inner being, so that Christ will dwell in his heart through faith. And I pray that he, being rooted and established in Your love, will always grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Your Son, Jesus Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge-that he may be filled to the measure of all of Your fullness. Now to You who are able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to Your power that is at work within us, to You be glory in the church and in our marriage, and in Christ Jesus for ever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:14-21
