A Prayer for Your Husband to Have a Right Attitude

Who doesn’t struggle with an attitude?….or maybe it’s just me! (wink)

Whether you say you have an attitude, or don’t have an attitude, we all know somewhere we could be doing better.

Today’s prayer is not for my husband because he has a bad attitude, but rather that he would grow into the attitude of humility that Jesus has.

“Your attitude

should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:

who…made Himself nothing,

taking on the very nature of a servant…

He humbled himself.”

~Philippians 2:5-8~

A Prayer for Your Husband to have a Right Attitude

Father, thank you that You gave my husband a sound mind. (2Tim.1:7) Our attitudes are birthed by incorrect thoughts. Keep giving my husband the desire to prepare his mind for action, (1Pet.1:13) so that when the enemy comes to tempt, he can rightly discern good from evil, truth from lies, life from death. Through his prepared mind he will then be able to control his attitude.

Father, I pray You will remind him often to humble himself before You as Jesus did, taking on the nature of a servant, willing to serve in love those around him. (Phil.2:5-8) Remind him to be obedient to Your Word, ready to whatever is good, to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate in all that he does, showing true humility toward all people. (Titus3:1)

Let him not think of himself more highly than he ought to, letting pride and self righteousness reign, but to think of himself with sober judgement. (Romans12:3) Teach him to honor others before himself, always being devoted to those around him with brotherly love. (Romans12:10)

Lord, I pray that he will never lack zeal to do what is pleasing to You, always displaying humility, so that he can say “I will walk in my house with blameless heart.” (Ps.101:2)

Give him a new heart and put a new spirit in him. Remove from any attitude that is unloving, indifferent, selfish, proud or bitter. In its place, restore genuine love and concern for those around him. Put Your Spirit in him and move him to follow Your will and Your ways. (Ez.36:26-27) In Jesus’ name. Amen.

“Rid yourselves of all the offences you have committed

and get a new heart and a new spirit.”

    Hi Kaylene.
    Thank you for sharing that prayer. My husband recently told me that I can’t change him. Of course not. That’s God’s job. I just need to pray that God will speak to his heart. Thank you for this bit of encouragement.

    • Kaylene Yoder says:

      Praying with you, friend! I don’t think we purposely try to change people. We often long to help them become better and it back fires sometimes. Trust God to do a better work in your husband than any of your word or well intended help could. Blessings!

  3. Laura says:

    I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am to have come across this prayers for my husband. We are good threw so much in are marriage, that when something like this comes across you can’t help but to believe it’s from God. I am asking for prayers and to thank you!

  4. Michelle says:

    I needed this prayer in my soul. My mind knew what prayer can do but my heart was aching. I needed a word from the Lord with scripture that can give me peace in my soul. I’m exhausted. Sometime the verbal attack that he feels is just takes all I have to pray. I love him but my heart hurts. But little by little he’s making sure it leaves. I have given my heart back to God to protect it so I can continue to love & forgive him. But once settled it always comes back. His way of argue is to destroy. Sometimes that part of me doesn’t come back fully. I’m praying your prayer cause ONLY GOD CAN work this out.

  5. Amy says:

    Out of desperation for prayer I came across your website. I cant take his abuse any more. A perfect prayer to mould my husband.

  6. tammy alalibo says:

    Thank God I found thud kind of prayer my husband really needs it. Because the prayer is exactly describing him.

  7. Nikki says:

    Thanks for this prayer and the scripture passages. My husband needs prayer to release him from the oppression of arrogance, pride, and impatience. Jesus is Lord of all and He will crush the schemes of the devil. Our husbands are free in Jesus’ name.

    • Sara says:

      Thank you for this prayer. I found this when my heart is broken by his harsh words and his pride and arrogance which he can’t even let go for his own life partner. This prayer reinforces the fact that he is not above God. And God will bring him down to earth. Maybe not now. But some point of his life he will realise that.

  8. Kathleen Darst says:

    My husband recently passed away but not before he accepted Christ into his life. This made the most horrific day of my life the most glorious day. My husband is now resting eternally with the Lord Jesus. Never give up on God, He can do anything and everything

    • Kaylene Yoder says:

      Wow! Thank You, Jesus! What a beautiful testimony of God’s love, grace, mercy and favor. Thank you for sharing this. I am praying peace and rest over you as you rejoice in the Lord even in your sorrow.

  9. Naimbi says:

    Thank you so much for this prayer. As one wife commented, I love my husband dearly, but my heart is in constant pain. He’s prideful, critical, emotionally and verbally abusive, swears all the time from the moment he wakes up and has no patience. I’m at my wits end and stuck in the house with him due to COVID-19. I’m the only one working from home plus taking care of our three kids including infants, cooking and cleaning. I’m trying to exercise the patience God has already given me but to say I’m tired does not even describe where I am right now mentally, emotionally and physically. I know God is able, but I’m just not sure if I’m supposed to wait around for the change.

    • Kaylene Yoder says:

      Praying for you! May the Lord invade your home and right all that is wrong or overwhelming. I pray also that He will give you strength enough for each day. Keep seeking Him! He is always faithful to love and provide our needs emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually. 💗🙏

    • kathleen cook says:

      I hear your pain and frustration. I feel many similar feelings. It hurts and is sad. I pray for him and you.

  10. Tammy says:

    Thank you Kaylene for sharing these wonderful prayers, and I can sympathize with all the comments from the other wives and pray God blesses them with peace, and I come in agreement with what Nikki prayed and that in Jesus’ Mighty Name our husbands are set free. Amen! Praise God!
