Now and then someone will ask me, “How do you pray for your husband?” An easy place to start is with scripture. Anytime you are reading the Word, look for concepts that will work for prayer.
If you’re reading about a person in a story, look for specific characteristics. For David, you could pray that your husband would become a man after God’s own heart. If you’re reading about Abraham, pray that he would become a man of faith.
Many of the non-story scriptures are good too. Pray the proverbs over your husband; that he would have wisdom and understanding. Look at the New Testament scriptures as directives as well. “Lord, teach him to walk by faith and not by sight.” 2 Cor. 5:7 or “Lord, help him to count it all joy as he walks through this trial.” James 1:2
The scriptures are rich with ideas for prayer blessings.
God wants us…to talk to him as to a friend or father—authentically, reverently, personally, earnestly. Bill Hybels
