5 Powerful Prayers to Pray Over Our Husbands


God ordained the man, as the head of the family. As fathers and husbands, they carry financial, emotional, and physical burdens. They make several sacrifices to make sure their wife and kids have what they need.

It is the duty of every good husband to do so. However, the head that wears the crown gets heavy too. Some men refuse to share their struggles, because they’ve been raised to keep their emotions to themselves and endure.

As wives, we took oaths before God and men to be with our husbands through it all. It is our duty to stand in the gap to continually lift our husbands up to God. The position of a wife is one of consistent intercession and the genuine prayer of a wife for her husband is a powerful one.
Asides from lifting off their burdens, prayer changes our husbands and changes us. Marriage is not always a bed of roses, it’s sometimes also a bed of rocks. But when things get rocky, as wives, we fight on our knees. That is where true victory lies. Here are 5 powerful prayers to pray for our husbands even as we go through life with them.

Lord, I pray today that you permeate my husband’s heart so that he will love you with all of his heart, soul, strength, and mind.

Draw his mind to You in unexpected ways as he goes about his duties. Give him strength for all he has to do. Help me to act towards him in ways that encourage him instead of tearing him down. In Jesus Christ’s name, Amen.
