A Prayer for Your Husband’s Future

Father, thank You for this man You have set in my life to lead me and our family. I pray you will give him a clear vision of what Your plan is for him. I pray that he will not pursue things of his own will but seek You first in all things, so he can lead us in the way that is good, right and beneficial to each member of our family.

Instruct him, Lord, even as he sleeps in the way You would have him go. Stay at his right hand so he will not be shaken. (Ps.16:7) You have promised to give to each person that which he has done. I pray my husband will be a man who persistently seeks to do good so that he may inherit eternal life. (Romans2:6-7)

Father, surround him with Your mighty wings, illuminate the path You would have him walk, strengthen him to march courageously onward, whether the storm is favorable or unfavorable, always willing to obey You. May he make his plans by seeking advice from You or sound counsel from godly men. (Pr.20:18) I pray he would always be careful to live uprightly and act wisely, never letting an opportunity to bring glory to You go to waste. (Eph.5:15-16)

Lead him ever in the way that is right, so that it may go well with him, his marriage, and his descendants. In Jesus’ precious name. Amen.

“Whether it be favorable or unfavorable,

we will obey the Lord our God,…

so that it may go well with us”

~ Jeremiah 42:6 ~

    When I pray specifically, I often get specific answers. Thanks for the nudge to pray more for my husband. I really have enjoyed visiting your blog lately (since I &quot;met&quot; you) and look forward to dropping by more often as time permits. I will probably see you again when I start reading down through my linkups :-)<br />

    Kaylene, We&#39;re neighbors at Simply Beth today. I love that you are doing this series. Praying over our husbands and children specifically blesses them and our family. Beautiful encouragement.

    I pray for my husband as well – I love the prayer you&#39;ve written out here – it is beautiful, meaningful, and practical. You will definitely be a resource (don&#39;t mess with the archives, I&#39;ll be using them!) Thank you for sharing. Visiting from Simply Beth&#39;s.

    Blessed to have you stop by, Janet! I have no intentions of messing with the archives 🙂 Namely because I don&#39;t like redoing my work! 🙂 Hope to see you here again!

    Kaylene! I’ve enjoyed this 40 day fast this year! It’s been challenging but so rewarding! I have been changed so much in the process of praying for my husband!! This fast has brought some of my close friends back together because we joined together to hold each other accountable to pray for our husbands! Thank you so much!!!

    Do you have these available as some sort of printable? I have made a prayer binder and would love to put them in it. Thanks!
