Your husband is a gift from God and your prayers are the best gift you can give to him. However, many wives forget or don’t fully understand how vital it is to pray for their spouse and how it benefits them too. 

The Bible makes it clear that a husband and wife are one flesh, so talking to God on your husband’s behalf is equivalent to doing so for yourself too. Praying for your husband and marriage is how you can stay grounded in this turbulent world. 

Below, you will find the most heartfelt prayers and practical tips for praying for your spouse. 

Why Should You Pray for Your Husband?

There are many great reasons to pray for your husband as you will see. Prayer is the most powerful thing you can do for him.

1. God is our only hope in these times.

The world is becoming increasingly dangerous and vicious. Only those who have their refuge in Christ can truly be safe. 

Prayer is how you bring your husband and marriage under God’s protection and covering

2. Our spouse needs strength and courage.

Husbands have a lot to shoulder as the heads of the family and it can weigh heavily on them sometimes. 

When we pray for them, we lighten this load. All the strength and courage they need to face their responsibilities head-on are supplied as we pray.

3. It can make your spouse and marriage better.

There’s no rift or issues in marriage that talking to God cannot solve. When you pray, it strengthens the commitment between you and your husband by changing the way the both of you love each other into God’s ideal for love.

 If there’s anything you don’t seem to like in your spouse’s character, talk to the Lord about it instead of nagging them for it.

4. It is an invitation for God into your relationship.

A Godly marriage must have Jesus at its center. Prayer is a way of getting God involved in your relationship with your spouse.

 It helps you both receive better direction, guidance, and the strength to fulfill your purpose together. Marriage has its ups and downs but with God, yours will always be overcome.

5. It helps a couple to stay united.

As the saying goes, “a family that prays together, stays together“. When you pray for and with your spouse, it strengthens your marital bonds and gives your family a sense of unity against everything else.

6. There is a constant satanic attack on marriages.

Naturally, Satan targets the family order in our world today. At the top of the list are Christian marriages because they follow God’s original plan for matrimony. 

A daily prayer is how we enforce Jesus’ victory over the devil in our marriages. A prayer a day keeps the devil away.

How to Pray for Your Husband

If you’re not sure where to start, below are some great tips for praying for your husband.

1. Thank God for your husband.

Whether you have reservations against your partner or not, thank God for him because a spouse is His gift to you. It helps you to focus on their good sides and the good memories of them you have so that you can genuinely thank the Lord for them.

2. Advocate for your husband.

As a wife, stand in the gap for your spouse in all areas. Bring his faith, walk, business, work, family life, struggles, and every other thing before God in prayer. Pray like his burdens are yours because you are one flesh.

3. Ask God to make you a better wife.

Most of the time, we’re so focused on asking God to change our husbands that we fail to realize that sometimes we need changes too.

Start by asking God to help you discover where you’re missing it. Tell Him to give you the grace to work on your flaws, so you can be a better wife to your partner. Don’t be the one who drags your husband down. Become the one who supports him.

4. Don’t give up.

Perseverance is important to get victory as the truth is, you never stop praying for him. Keep pushing even when nothing seems to be changing or when everything is finally working out. Offering prayers for your husband is a lifetime duty.
