“The eye is the lamp of the body.
If your eyes are good,
your whole body will be full of light.
If your eyes are bad,
your whole body will be full of darkness.”
Do you pray for your husband’s spiritual eyes; the way he sees and understands the things of the Lord?
This prayer for asks that God would move your husband to keep himself of pure intent, able to recognize things that are glorifying to God, and that he will not defile his body, the temple of the Lord.
A Prayer for Your Husband’s Spiritual Eyes
Father, we know our eyes are the lamp of our bodies. With them we either introduce light or dark, good or evil into our hearts. (Matt.6:22-23) Give my husband the courage to guard himself from evil. Far remove from him any addictions to vile images or lusts. Convict him and move him to get rid of any idols he may be holding on to, not defiling himself. May he not be as some who did not obey Your command to remove images and idols. To those You said You would pour our Your wrath and spend Your anger on them. (Ez.20:7-8) Do not pour out Your anger on my husband.
Lord, we know You are too pure to look on evil; You cannot tolerate wrong. (Hab.1:13) However, I pray You will be patient with my husband in the work of guarding his eyes, yet never letting him become comfortable and complacent in this work. Let him be ever growing, ever learning to see as You do: purely and rightly.
Jesus, You said, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.” (Matt.5:8) I pray also that the eyes of his heart may be enlightened in order that he may know the hope to which You have called him. May he see the riches of Your glorious inheritance and Your incomparably great power, and may it move him to further seek to guard and purify his eyes, the lamp of his body. (Eph.1:18-19) I pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
