A Scripture Prayer for Your Husband’s Friends

A Prayer for Your Husband's Friends - Kaylene Yoder

A Prayer for Your Husband’s Friends

Dear Jesus, You are our one forever faithful Friend. You are the One Who sticks closer than a brother. (Pr18:24) But, You did not intend a man to walk this earth alone and without friends in visible flesh and form. You have encouraged us to walk with the good and the upright so that we might not grow weary in well doing, or grow weak and complacent in our faith. So, Father, today I pray my husband’s friends will be those who are wise and gentle. Friends who, as iron sharpens iron, sharpen him and encourage him in his faith. (Pr.27:17) May he always be cautious in friendships (Pr.12:26), not choosing company that would lead him down a path that is not good. (Pr.16:28-29)

Father, I pray You would remove any interest he might have in pursuing the activities and ways of ungodly friends. Give him wisdom to see where he may need to discontinue a friendship that is not up-building to his character. Do not let him make friends with a hot-tempered man, lest he learn to do thee same. (Pr.22:24-25) Give him the knowledge to know he needs to avoid any man who talks too much, for such a person is prone to gossip and is not trustworthy. (Pr.20:19)

Father, I pray, also my husband would be a man who attracts godly friends. Remind him to be a man who listens before speaking, being more interested in others than himself, helping others before helping himself, doing for others before doing for himself, and not expecting from others what he doesn’t expect from himself. Encourage him to be a friend like Jesus, being a man of integrity, not easily swayed by men and paying no attention to their rank or name. (Mark12:14) for when he is such a man, he will also find such men to walk along side him. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

    What a beautiful and wise prayer of protection this is for our husbands! How true it is that the wrong friends can lead us down a path we shouldn’t go.

    Hi kaylene. Your prayers have been a blessing to me over the past month. The introduction verse stood out to me so I went to read and study on it some more. I found it in proverbs 13:20! Lol. Thus must have been God directed because the proverbs 16:20 was a great reinforcement for the latter during my study.

    Hi Kaylene,
    I am so grateful for the beautiful prayers you have provided us to pray for our partners in life! It has been a joy to pray these over my fiancee.
    I wanted to let you know that the scripture reference at the beginning is actually Proverbs 13:20.
    Blessings to you as you continue to walk with Jesus.

    Im praying for my future husband by using these prayers. Actually also a guy that I met 7 months ago. We two had affection to each other. However, I know that he don’t want to have relationships with me because there are still many choices out there. That really hurting me recently. I want to submit to Father.
    These prayers really helped me a lot ! Thank you!!

      I am praying for you to fall in love with your Heavenly Father’s perfect will. May He be your compass and guide in your desire to build a relationship for His glory.

    Thank you for being a vessel for God. The words in your prayer is exactly what is in my heart. My husband chose the most destructive friends at work for years. Our marriage suffered, he was unfaithful. I just wanted you to know that you blessed me today
