Simple Daily Prayers For My Husband

Do you start praying for your husband and quickly find yourself repeating the same thing time after time? Or do you know you should pray for your man, but just don’t know where to start? Believe me, I’ve been there! 

This is why I’ve written this set of simple daily prayers for my husband. And I’m praying that these prayers will help you in praying for your guy, too.

Each of these prayers focuses on a different area of his life every day. These are concerns we Christian wives often think about, but sometimes don’t take the time to put into the words to pray. 

You can use these prayers as a starting place for more personalized prayers for your husband, for times when your words have dried up, or you just don’t have time to think. 

Why is it important to pray for your husband?

Praying for your husband may be the single most important thing you ever do for your marriage and for your life. Here are some reasons why:

You are his helper

The Bible tells us we wives are help mates to our husbands. We naturally feel this and we often go about helping in all of the ways we know how to help (and believe me, we can get pretty creative in the wrong ways)… 

The Bible tells us to intercede

If a man’s wife isn’t praying for him, there is a gap that needs to be filled. Believe me, our husbands need us to engage in intercessory prayer for them, standing in the gap for them. Our men, as leaders and heads of our households, are on the frontline of the battlefield, where Satan will try everything he can use against them.

Praying gets me out of the way

Praying is SO much better than complaining or trying to get him to change. This is a hard concept for our wifely helping genes to understand and carry out. But realize this: God does not need me to do the changing, my job is to do the praying! As we learn to step out of the way and pray, our prayers release us from responsibility for our man or his actions, and allow God to deal directly with him.

My complaints go to the One who can do the fixing

You may have heard the saying “prayer changes things”. Well, prayer changes people, too, because when we pray, God changes us in ways we will never understand. When we trust God, we are able to let go of our fears and stop trying so hard. He can change your husband when you bring him before the God who makes all things possible. It’s then that we can clearly see that it’s God who does the fixing, not us. 

Praying is always the best thing we can do

All too often, we think of prayer as an afterthought, when other plans haven’t worked. But in reality, if we turn to God as our first line of defense, we will learn to depend on prayer as the first thing we can do to help our husband, not the last resort.

7 daily prayers to pray for your husband.1

Lord, I thank you for this man. Lord, I pray that he will be the leader of our family, and that he will be led by You in all he does. 

I pray for a strong and loving union between the two of us, as husband and wife, and that I will look to him and respect him as the leader, praying first instead of as a last resort in every situation, whether he is doing a home repair or making a life-changing decision. 

Help us to prioritize and grow to be completely comfortable praying together, bringing any and every concern in our lives to You.  

For myself, I pray for the courage to step out of the path between him and You, Lord, knowing that our individual relationships with You must be first, even before our relationship with each other. Amen

Lord, I am so thankful for this man. I pray for his safety and protection at work, at home, during recreation, and as he travels. Please hold him in the palm of Your hand as he goes about each day.

Lord, I am so thankful for this man. I ask You to protect his thoughts and mind at all times. When he has concerns and challenges, please remind him that he always has access to bring his worries or fears to You and leave them at Your feet.

Give him direction to make the right decisions (in a current situation), and help us to be able to talk about his concerns with calm and peace, and to bring them all before You as a couple (whether the list is long or the problems seem impossible), knowing that we can trust You in everything, because You hold every answer to every question or problem there is.  Amen 

Blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit. Jeremiah 17:7-8

Lord, I thank you for my husband. I pray that he will find fulfillment in the work that You have given him, and if You have something more or different for him to do, that You would make it clear to both of us.

If he is out of work, please lead him to the right job soon and let him not stay unemployed for any length of time.

I ask You to carry him through this day, as with all of his days at work, and help him to deal rightly with any problems or issues that arise. Help him to lead with godly principles, no matter what his work is. And when he comes home to me and our family, help him to be able to leave his work with the assurance that he has accomplished what You gave him to do for yet another day.

Give him ambition and motivation to always do his best at his work. Help him to be paid fairly and not be cheated in any way. Amen

Make it your goal to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands, just as we instructed you before. Then people who are not believers will respect the way you live, and you will not need to depend on others. I Thessalonians 4:11-12

Lord, I am so thankful for this husband of mine. I pray, Lord, that You would speak to his heart and that he will have the desire for an ever-deepening relationship with You.

Lord, I ask for You to teach him and to give him a heart open to receive the truth. Connect him with mentors that will speak truth to him. 

Please don’t allow him to be drawn in by any false teachers, but give him the discernment to recognize false teaching when he comes across it.

Please make us comfortable praying together as man and wife, and let this lead us into a more trusting and deeper relationship with You and with each other. I trust You to give my husband the spiritual strength that can only come from You.  Amen
