Last week, I wrote about 3 Scriptures to pray over your children. So I thought it would be very fitting to follow up with 3 Scriptures you can pray over your husband.
And – as a sidenote – you can pray these prayers even if you don’t have a husband (but you would like one). You can ask God to bring a man into your life and begin praying for him even now.
My husband James brings such strength and laughter into our home. Praying for him helps me not to take him for granted, and also helps me rightly recognize his need (and my need) for God.
Here are 3 Scriptures you can pray this week over your husband:
Lord, when __________ cries out to You, hear him and deliver him from all his troubles. Lord be close to my husband whenever he is brokenhearted and save him when he is crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:17-18)
Lord, help ________ not merely to listen to the word and so deceive himself. Help him to do what it says. (James 1:22)
God of hope, fill __________ with all joy and peace as he trusts in You, so that he may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13)
Pray on wives!
