The most important thing you can do for your husband is to pray for him. I know that the times that I have been less faithful in praying for my husband, the more we have arguments, and the harder he struggles. As women, we were created to be our husband’s help meet- the one who is to help in do the things God has called him to do in life. This does not lessen the things God has called us as women to do – no, it doubles it! Our purpose to pray for husbands is huge, and they need it!
I have also found that praying God’s Word to be highly effective. The promises of God’s Word are the things he wants to accomplish in our lives. So, when we are praying the Word back to Him, we know we are praying according to His Will. Add these verses to your prayer list or War Room for your husband today:
14 Verses To Pray Over Your Husband
Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church,
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, 2 with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love,
The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.
And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ,
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.
Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed, for he shares his bread with the poor.
3 John 2
Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.
The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?
The fear of the Lord is instruction in wisdom, and humility comes before honor.
Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
