Have you ever considered the weighty responsibilities our husbands (or future husbands) face as men of God? Not only are they called to be a witness to the world, but they are given the divine challenge to model Christ in their daily living with their wives and children.
The humble servant who did not cling to His divinity, but sacrificed all to redeem the sins of the world.
And our husbands are directed to model that kind of love to their families.
Ladies, that is no small task. They can do this only through perseverance, submission to Christ, and the working of the Holy Spirit in their lives.
And it is our glorious responsibility and high honor to intercede on behalf of our husbands! Let us bow our knees and approach the throne of grace with boldness and humility, beseeching the Almighty on behalf of our husbands.
“My word that comes from My mouth will not return to Me empty, but it will accomplish what I please and will prosper in what I send it to do.” (Isaiah 55:11)
Ten Scripture Verses to Pray Over Your Husband
Psalm 119:14- 16
I rejoice in the way revealed by Your decrees as much as in all riches. I will meditate on Your precepts and think about Your ways. I will delight in Your statutes; I will not forget Your word.

II Corinthians 9:7
The person who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the person who sows generously will also reap generously. Each person should do as he has decided in his heart—not reluctantly or out of necessity, for God loves a cheerful giver.
Heavenly Father I ask that you will give my husband a generous and giving spirit. Please give us wisdom as we manage our finances so that we will be able to bless others out of the bounty you have provided for us. Thank you that you supply every need in perfect time.
I Peter 2:2
So rid yourselves of all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all slander. Like newborn infants, desire the pure spiritual milk, so that you may grow by it for your salvation, since you have tasted that the Lord is good.
Heavenly Father, I ask that my husband will be holy before you, cleansing himself of malice, deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander. May your Spirit draw him to you so that he desires, craves your Word. Lord, as he studies your Word I pray that he will grow closer to you and become more like Christ.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself for her to make her holy, cleansing her with the washing of water by the word…husbands are to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hates his own flesh but provides and cares for it, just as Christ does for the church, since we are members of His body.
Heavenly Father, I pray that you will empower my husband to lead and love me in the same way Christ loves His church.

Thank you for the sweet relationship of marriage, I ask that you will use our marriage as a testimony of your love for your church.
Who is wise and has understanding among you? He should show his works by good conduct with wisdom’s gentleness. But if you have bitter envy and selfish ambition in your heart, don’t brag and deny the truth…For where envy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every kind of evil. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peace-loving, gentle, compliant, full of mercy and good fruits, without favoritism and hypocrisy.
Heavenly Father, I pray that you will grant my husband wisdom that is pure, gentle, and mercy-filled. Please give him wisdom as he leads our family, that he may demonstrate peace. Please give him wisdom as he performs his job, may he find favor with those whom he works as well as you. Please give him wisdom as he serves our community, so that he will not show favoritism or hypocrisy. I thank you that your word says that you will give wisdom to those who ask.
The one who lives with integrity is righteous; his children who come after him will be happy.
