A Scripture Prayer for Your Husband’s Protection

A Prayer for Your Husband’s Protection

Father, I thank You for the promises You give throughout the Bible to keep Your children safe. To give us a refuge, to be our strength and strengthener. Thank You that You will never leave us nor forsake us and to be gracious to us all the days of our lives.

Father, protect my husband in all the ways he walks; watch over his coming and going (Ps.121:8) guiding him away from any harmful situations. Protect him from traveling accidents, work accidents, sicknesses, debilitating diseases of the body or mind. Protect him from violence and the people who do it. I stand in the gap on behalf of my husband, (Ez.22:30-31) asking that You place your mighty hand of protection around him in every way he goes.

Lord, I know that Your arm is not too short that You cannot save, (Is.58:1) so preserve the life of my husband so that he might grow old to watch his children’s children grow. I entrust him to You, fully convinced that You are able to protect him this day and every day of his life. (2Tim.1:12)

Father, when his heart is burdened and his spirit weary, the world seems dark all around, remind him that You are his shield, his deliverer, his rock. Remind him that You are his firm foundation, cornerstone and stronghold. (2Sam.22:1-4) Protect him from any attacks the enemy plans to make on his mind, diverting the fiery darts that get sent his way. You will not fail him, for You will not reject your people; You will never forsake Your inheritance. (Ps. 94:14) In Jesus’ precious name. Amen.

    I just found your blog, and have been reading through some of your prayers for husbands. Great reminder, as my children's needs tend to monopolize my prayers. Good stuff, thanks!

    It strengthens the husband/wife bond when we are faithful to pray for our husband. I&#39;m so thankful God hears the prayers we pray. He said they are incense to Him. ~Pamela

    Kaylene, thank you so much for the wonderful and beautiful prayers that you have shared. I was so pleased when I “happened” upon them. I have much difficulty finding prayers that reflect what I truly feel but can’t put into words, and yours have been pretty much on point. I especially appreciate the prayers for husbands and our children, I try to read them daily. Again thank you so much, your prayers are truly a blessing.

  10. Chelsea George says:

    Thank you for this prayer I tried to read this everyday for the Lord to protect my husband in every way that he goes this is my prayer for everyone and would you please add me and my husband on your prayer list if you would I just feel like we just struggle in so many ways just to get along but thank God God has brought us a long way and we’ve been doing better but we still need to work on a lot of things number one is to see God first and everything we do and I believe that all things will fall into place as it says in his word
