Prayer for Husband

A dear mom in our MOPs family recommended this to me and I wanted to pass it on for our theme this month, Flourishing in Marriage. It’s sometimes easy in this season of life to focus on the kids and their needs, but we need to remember our husbands too!

A PRAYER FOR YOUR HUSBAND WHEN HE’S STRESSED

Heavenly Father,I ask you to surround my husband with your peace during this trying time in his life. Everything is demanding his time and attention and he feels torn in so many directions. With all of the extra distractions and frustrations in life, it is easy for him to forget how much you love him. I know you have good things for him. I trust you are in charge of each detail in his life. I know that he is safe in your Hands, and you will never forsake him. Remind him of your goodness and mercy. Let him rest in knowing You are there to care for him when things seem too impossible to conquer.

I pray he casts all of his cares on You because you care for him (1 Peter 5:7). I pray he feel the peace that passes all understanding and is able to stand in the middle of difficult situations. I pray that peace will guard his heart and mind as you bring him through each day (Philippians 4:7). You provide strength when we feel weak, and he isn’t required to “work harder” in order to gain Your approval or acceptance. May we understand your transforming grace as we walk out this life with You. When we fail, remind us we are loved and forgiven because of Your sacrifice on the cross. Thank you for this gift. Even though life can be so painful, we know you have overcome this life and you are with us in our sufferings. I pray my husband will feel Your nearness during the dark times in his life.

I pray for protection over my husband in all areas of his life. At home, I pray you bless him as he leads his family. Thank you for his desire to bring you glory and to teach our children Your truths. Show me ways to bless him and support him in this. Help me to honor him, esteem him, and appreciate him. I pray you bless the work of his hands as he provides for his family. Guard his steps and and keep his heart safe while he is at work and away from home. When he feels discouraged, I pray he looks back over his life, and sees how faithful You have been. I pray this gives him peace, richer joy, and more stability in the middle of stressful times.

Thank you for the covenant of marriage, and the blessing of family. I am so grateful for my husband and I thank you for bringing him into my life.

In Jesus’ Name,
Amen
