A Prayer that Your Husband will Trust the Lord
Father, we know Your ways are only good. Your ways are perfect, Your Word is flawless and You promise to be a shield to those who trust in You. (2Sam.22:31)
Father, I pray my husband would be dealt an extra measure of trust. Show him throughout the day that he can trust You with whatever comes. Give him a peace beyond understanding so he can rest in knowing all will be as it should be in Your eyes. Where there is even a small measure of distrust, doubt or trepidation, remind him that You have proven Yourself faithful since the beginning of time and promise to be faithful and trustworthy to all eternity.
Father, when my husband makes plans that go wrong or don’t hold out, do not let him become discouraged. Remind him that this is only for a season, and that when he stands firmly on Your foundation, You will greatly reward him. Many are the woes of the wicked, but Your unfailing love surrounds those who trust in You. (Ps.32:10) Many can be the plans of a mans heart but Your will, oh Lord, that will prevail. (Pr.19:21) Let my husband rest securely in those promises, knowing that Your thoughts and Your ways are above all others and You cannot allow what is not fitting to your great plan. (Is.55:8-9)
Father, I praise You that You have given my husband a sound mind and teachable spirit. Now and often, teach and speak to my husband through Your word and Spirit. Do not snatch the word of truth from him, so that he can’t put his trust in You. (Ps.119:43) Neither let him be a fool who trusts in himself, but establish him as a man who walks in wisdom, his confidence secured in You. (Pr.28:26, Jer.17:7) In Jesus’ name. Amen.
