A Prayer for Your Husband’s Mind and Thoughts

How easily we can be led astray if left to the imaginations of our mind.

May we take captive every thought and make it obedient to our Lord. All sorts of evil comes from an uncontrolled mind – fear, depression, exhaustion, temptation, anger and bitterness to name a few.

Today pray over your husband’s mind commanding away any stronghold the enemy may have or plan to have.

“All day long I have held out My hands

to an obstinate people,

who walk in ways not good,

pursuing their own imaginations”

~Isaiah 65:2~

A Prayer for Your Husband’s Mind

Dear Jesus, our thoughts can be deceptive, most often put there when we let our feelings reign. But You know and discern the thoughts and intents of our hearts. (Hebrews 4:12) Do not let my husband walk in ways that are not good, or pursue his own thoughts and imaginations (Is. 65:2) Instead make him wise and discerning with a mind like Christs (1Cor.2:16), weighing his thoughts with the truth of Your word.

Father, we know those who live according to sinful nature have their minds set on what nature desires. (Ro.8:5) We know evil minded people didn’t think it worthwhile to retain knowledge of You. Therefore, You gave them over to a depraved mind and they were filled with wickedness. They became senseless, faithless, heartless and ruthless people. (Ro.1:28-31) I stand in faith praying You will not give my husband over to depraved thoughts which will result in all kinds of diseases of the mind.  You have not given my husband a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind. (2Tim1:7)

I pray my husband will not be conformed to any pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of his mind (Ro12:2) Taking captive every thought and making it obedient to You (2Cor.10:5) so that he will be able to test and approve what is your good and perfect will in all circumstances. (Ro.12:2)

Lord, I place my husband before You knowing You will make him new in his thoughts. Convict him and enable him to stand against the wiles of the devil when an attack is made upon his mind. Help him to stand strong, being clear minded and self-controlled so He can hear You when he prays. (1Pet.4:7) May he think on things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely – whatever is admirable or praiseworthy, so that the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will be able to further guard his heart and his mind in Christ Jesus. (Phil. 4:8,7) Amen.

  2. Melissa says:

    My husband is not only negative towards me but our children as well, he makes us everyone feel worthless and useless, never gives us credit for anything we do, nothing we do is satisfactory for him. He seems to have no compassion, I’m going to pray these prayers everyday, morning and night, I’m going to keep in mind all the women and children who are going through this themselves. He hasn’t always been like this, he’s a negative minded person, but it wasn’t always towards his family, he doesn’t make our house feel like a home.

    • Kaylene Yoder says:

      Praying for the spirit of fear and negativity to be removed from your husband and your home. May you feel the peace & love of God invading your hearts, minds, and souls. Through prayer, you will reclaim the ground the enemy has stollen. Keep trusting God to do miracles in your lives, as well as seek His wisdom in how you are to handle each situation.

    Sister thanks for this prayer empowered with word of God, I too pray few of these verses over my husband’s mind. We need to pull down those strongholds and take every lofty imaginations n speculations that exalt against Gods Knowledge and take them captive to obey Jesus Christ! Then declare and decree that those deceptive thoughts has no place or power over my husbands mind emotions and His will.

  7. Sheila Milz says:

    Thank you so much for these precious prayers. They are so rich with scripture. Sometimes I pray them for myself as well.

    If you don’t mind, I noticed a typo in “A Prayer for Your Husband’s Mind:
    “May he true, noble, right, pure, lovely” 
    Should this be – “May he be true,…”
    Thank you for your ministry,

  8. Debbie says:

    I prayed the prayer for both my husband & I. I need it most because he has to see Jesus in me. I feel bad because I’ve truly been so negative, but it’s due to circumstances out of my control. I’m taking care of my 3 young granddaughters because my daughter is overseas till the end of Nov. Then I have my husband who has health issues. In addition there’s women that are controlling & manipulative of my middle granddaughter who go to a church I go to. They’ve been like thorns in our sides. I have to pass people tests if I’m to go to another level in Christ. Keep my family & I in much prayer would you please. We certainly need all we can get. Thank you & God bless you.

  9. Jody Solis says:

  10. Belinda says:

    This is a much needed prayer during this time of quarantine. I will be praying this over both my husband and myself. Thank you!

  11. Gayla Rydberg says:

    Thank you so much for your kind words and prayers. I truly believe the Lord us working through you to bring me out of my attitude toward my husband at this time. He is I’ll and very demanding of my time. I get so weary and then so negative myself. I try my hardest to not aim my attitude toward him and keep it all inside, which I know is not good. Your prayer sent today has been a blessing. May God bless you.

  12. A Mendoza says:

    Thank you for this page. I have prayed this two or three times now and some from your other title. Please brethren pray for my husband as he and his family have been under quite a many generation under extreme narcissism, addictions and lack of repentance. “I never do wrong,” behavior and attitudes with the elder generation enabling the younger and anyone who does not follow suit, is the bad apple, black sheep, problem and object of blame. Today I know what the beginning of the manifested “Shaking,” for my husband, yet, he still isn’t there and this “habit” in the hardest of minds (literally, seared conscience) and the hardened heart as so nail-biting, knees nailed to the floor and spiritual warfare ‘shananigans’ you can imagine. EVERYTHING in EVERY direction came as is. I am still being in what God said to me than to go by what I feel or see regardless the added intensities, my husband’s mustard seed faith just got grinded and blames me and our relationship for his own shortcomings. I havent been the best wifey, allbetit, it has been in the ‘weariness’ and ‘rawness’ in really hard to pull it all together moments… I am determined to get back up again, learn and move to better. I am quite use to have prayer warrior friends, but here, 3 yrs later, I am still with no partners thus far.. Please lift my husband up for an interpersonal and very intimate moment received with CHrist Jesus. THank you.

  13. Tammy J Rinkhoff says:
