Praying for your husband starts before marriage. It starts when God places marriage on your heart.

Do you desire to be a wife? Then nows the time to start praying for hubby sis!

I remember being single and praying for a husband. I also remember praying the prayer “God, if he ain’t the one let me know!”

And let me tell you sis, that happened a few times. Until one tall, dark, and handsome cup of venti coffee came on the scene. I asked God the same question and there were crickets. So I knew he was the one!

We’ve now been married for five years and have a third child on the way. God is good!

I want to share with you how you can pray for a husband WITH scripture, whether you’re married or not. Because prayer doesn’t begin at the I do’s. It begins even before the first date.

This post is all about prayer for a husband with scripture.

Prayer for a Husband with Scripture

Dear Heavenly Father, I come to you as humbly as I can on behalf of my husband*. Lord, I pray first and foremost that you will mold me into the woman of God you desire me to be and the wife that will allow her husband to obtain favor from you.

I pray that my husband above all else will love with his heart and have a deep love for you, God. Lord, place an abundance of respect in our marriage so that we can prosper as our souls prosper.

Allow my husband’s faith to be strong and place ministry works on his heart. Elevate him in his career and in the calling you have over his life. Let him be a protector to our family and continuous light to this dark world.

Fill him with your everlasting love and Holy Spirit. Guide him in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge and workmanship. Mold him into your image.

I pray that you place it on his heart to seek you all the days of his life. Guide him to pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patient, and gentleness. Fill him Lord with the fruits of your spirit.

I pray Lord that you continue to work in my husband and encourage his heart. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.

How do I pray for a good husband?

If you’re here because you’re praying for your future husband great! But know this, you do not have to feel obligated to go out and find him.

He will find you! That’s scripture sis!

“He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord” – Proverbs 18:22 NKJV

Sis, your job right now is to pray for that future husband, yes, but your job is also to become the Godly woman that he is seeking. Become the good thing. That Proverbs 31 woman.

Become the wife that when your husband finds will obtain favor from the Lord.

So with that said, God cares about your needs and desires so pray for your ideal man. Personally, I prayed for a tall handsome man who loved the Lord. I prayed that he would be athletic and driven. I got just that.

My husband was a college basketball player and current ordained elder at our church. God is good!

So pray your heart’s desire sis. God will show you favor too!

Prayer for my Husband in Difficult Times

It’s so hard to see my husband worried, anxious, or struggling with something. Whether it’s spiritually or even just something at his job.

But do you know what the best answer is? Yep, prayer.

I use scripture to pray over my husband when he is going through difficult times. It helps me, help him. For example, if he is anxious about something I can go to the Word of God and pray Philippians 4:6:

Dear Heavenly Father, you see the need and the anxiety that my husband is experiencing. I pray that he will be anxious for nothing. Lord help him to lean on you even more during this time and share his prayer requests with you. Allow burden and guilt to lift from his heart and have a renewed mind through your word. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.

That’s how simple I keep it when I am speaking a prayer for my husband with scripture.

This post was all about prayer for a husband with scripture that can help you grow in your marriage and relationship with God.
