21 prayers for your husband in difficult times

If you’re like most women, you probably don’t talk to your girlfriends about the real difficulties in your marriage. That makes it even harder to find the right prayer in tough times because it can be difficult to express exactly what you’re going through without being judged or criticized by others who don’t understand. These 21 prayers are written just for you and your husband, so whether he has been unfaithful or has been distant or irritable lately, you can find the right words and focus on what matters most when it comes to your relationship with him.

 

Prayer for Husband Strenght

Dear Lord, please bless my husband as he goes through these difficult times, and please give him strength to see it through. Please help him to remember that You love him very much, even though things may not seem like it right now. You are always with him, guiding him and caring for him, so that he doesn’t fail. Please help him to trust in You more than anything else; if he does, he will be able to endure any kind of challenge and come out stronger than before! I pray this in Jesus’s name! Amen!

 

As your wife, I’m always praying for you and supporting you in every way that I can. One of the best ways I support you and care for you when times are difficult, though, is by knowing what to pray for my husband in difficult times. It’s one thing to pray that God protects you and helps you cope with challenges in your business life or your family life, but it’s another thing to know how to communicate specifically with God about those challenges and how He can help you overcome them.

 

Prayer for guidance for your husband

In saying a daily prayer for your husband, consider asking the Lord for his guidance. Ask him to send a spirit of wisdom to your husband in all his undertakings.

Dear God, 

Please grant my husband your guidance in all that he does. Be with him as he makes decisions both large and small, and help him to feel your hand leading in his life. Give him the confidence to make Godly choices and to seek to do your will in everything. If he is struggling with a specific issue, please bless him and make his paths straight and clear. Amen.

What is Prayer According to the Bible?

Prayer for strength for your husband

We all could use a little extra strength, and it comes from God!

Dear God, 

Please give my husband strength today. Help him to remember that his strength and grace comes from you. Help us all to remember that all of our good gifts come from you, Heavenly Father. When my husband is feeling weak, please remind him of your love and your support, and help him to recall my love and support for him as well. Help me to be the wife that he needs me to be. Amen.

 

Prayer for a Godly marriage

I try to say a prayer for my husband and marriage each day. At night, when we pray together, we always thank God for our marriage and ask Him to bless it. I hope this prayer for husband and wife can inspire your own words!

Dear Lord,

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the blessing of marriage. I am so glad you gave me such a wonderful husband whom I treasure so deeply. Please help me to never take him for granted and continue to love him to the best of my abilities. Help me to love him as you love us. God, please bless our marriage in abundance. Help us to be a reflection of your love for us and help us always to seek you first in our marriage. Help us to grow stronger in love each and every day, and to always prioritize our marriage. Help us each to be selfless spouses who seek to bless and give to one another. And help us do all this to your glory Lord. Amen.

Prayer for your husband’s role in the family

In Christian households, men are seen as the spiritual head of the family. You can pray for your husband’s role as father and family leader. Even if you have differing opinions about this concept (it is the subject of debate) there’s no denying that your husband plays a massive role in the home. Pray for that.

Dear God,

My husband is essential to our family’s success, balance, and love. When guiding our family, may his decisions be rooted in you and your word. Help him to know how important he is to me (and to our kids). Please help him to lead our family in the way you would want him to lead, and help me to be the best co-captain and co-leader I can be. Help us to feel unity and equality in our marriage, offering the love and respect to one another that is right. Amen. 

Prayer for your family

This prayer can be adapted to fit the needs of your specific family. It’s a nice idea to pray for your possible future family, as well! My prayer below is for married couples who do not yet have children.

Dear God, 

Thank you so much for the gift of family. We feel so blessed to have the incredible family that we do. We ask that you will bless us with the gift of children if it is in your plan for us. Allow us to become loving and godly parents. Please be with each of our extended families. Bless them with health, safety, and happiness, and please allow them to feel your love for them today and always. Amen.

A prayer for peace

Perhaps one of the most beneficial and powerful prayers for your husband is a prayer for peace. In these crazy times, we can all use a bit more peace! This is something I should probably pray daily for both my husband and myself!

Dear Lord,

I know that you are the provider of peace. Please help my husband and I to remember this in our lives and to seek your peace at every moment. Help us to hold fast to your promises when we are feeling stressed, agitated, or anxious. We know that you want to give us a spirit of joy and peace and not of fear and worry. Please give my husband your peace today. Remove worries and irritations from his mind and allow him to focus on the good things. Help me to create a peaceful environment for him as well, and do all I can to promote peace in our marriage and in our home. Amen. 

Prayer for help through struggles

Sometimes I sneak in a short prayer for my husband when he is dealing with a challenge. We all face struggles on a daily, and every bit of grace and support I can offer him I know can be of help.

Dear God, 

My husband is dealing with an issue right now. You know what it is because you know what we need before we even ask for it. I come to you in Faith now Lord to ask for your help with this struggle. Please give my husband your comfort and your peace as well as your wisdom and strength. He can only get through this struggle with your help and grace Lord, so please let him feel your presence and place his trust and dependence on you. Amen. 

A prayer for the day

Why not offer a simply daily prayer for your husband? This is a quick way to express your love for him and to ask God to take care of him.

Dear Lord,

Good morning, God. I’m offering you my daily prayer for my husband, that he feels your presence throughout his day. That he feels the love and support of his wife and his family. And that he seeks you in every decision. Lord bless him, keep him safe, and bring him home to me. Amen.

pray without ceasing

Prayers for wisdom

Dear Lord, 

Help my husband as he makes decisions today. I especially ask him to help you with any specific or significant decisions he may be struggling with. Grant him the wisdom that only comes from you God, and help him to turn to you for help and guidance. I ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.

 

A blessing over your marriage

It’s a beautiful idea to pray together with your spouse each day. Not only does it help encourage your spiritual life, but it undoubtedly strengthens your bond, too. Whether you’re praying with or without your partner, a marriage blessing is a lovely prayer you can recite daily or as often as you think to.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Our marriage is a gift from above, and we depend on you for its continuing success. Help us never to forget to put you first in our lives. We ask that you would bless our marriage richly. Allow us to have a marriage that is full of love and joy, but also one that is strong and deep and able to withstand sorrows and tragedies. Help us always keep our marriage as one of the most important parts of our lives. Bless and protect our marriage oh Lord, and grant us many years together. Amen. 

 

Prayer for fatherhood

If you have children, prayers for husband and father are both needed. You can also ask God to help your husband prepare for fatherhood, if you don’t yet have children.

Dear Lord, 

Thank you for being our father and being the ultimate example of fatherly love. Help my husband to feel that love and to emulate it as best he can. Help my husband to grow as a father, becoming more generous, patient, and encouraging, just as you are. Let my husband know that he is a beloved and trusted father to this family and that we adore and respect him. Help him to feel confident in his fatherhood and his abilities. Allow me to be the best partner for him to support him as a father. Help us raise our children in the way you want for them, and help us to be loving and caring parents to our blessed children. Amen. 

 

Prayer for his Faith

Praying for your husband is something that can help you build your own faith, but it can help encourage his own as well, particularly if you pray for that specifically.

Dear Lord, 

I pray that my husband’s faith in you and your goodness continues to increase every day. If he has doubts, help dispel them and show him the truth of your promises and your love. Help my husband cling to the truth of your word and your presence in his life. And help our entire family to grow in Faith and love of you, Lord. Amen.

 

Prayer for provision in your husband’s life

We know that God provides, especially when we place our trust in Him to do so. I think it’s a great idea to pray for this for yourself and for your husband. It’s the perfect way to put your trust in the hands of God. Let him be in charge.

Dear God, 

Your word says that you will provide for our every need. I believe in your promise. Please provide for all of my husband’s needs: physical, spiritual, financial, and emotional. Help him to feel your blessings in his life and help him to learn to depend on you for all things. Chase away his worries and teach him that you are faithful to take care of our needs. And please help me to do the same, trusting in you more and more. Amen. 

 

Support for his work Prayer

Your husband desires your support and respect perhaps more than anything else. For many men (and women) this is closely tied to their career or work. Showing him your gratitude and respect is essential, but by praying for your husband’s labors, you’re offering the greatest support you possibly can!

Dear Lord Jesus, 

Give my husband all that he needs in his work today. Guide him in his decisions and surround him with wisdom and clarity. Help his actions at work to be imbued with integrity. Allow him to be an encouragement to those he works with and help them to see the light of Christ through his words and behavior. God, please help my husband to feel proud of the work he achieves. Help him to be confident in his strengths and abilities and help him to offer his work up as a sacrifice to you, knowing that all power and goodness comes from you, Lord. Amen.

 

Prayer for the avoidance of temptation

Temptation is unfortunately all too real, and it can appear in many guises. Though we may think that temptation for our husbands is usually in the form of sexual temptation, there are really so many temptations out there (that affect both husbands and wives). In many situations, it can be easy to give in to our baser natures and lie, steal, and cheat; whether those are major instances of sin or what we might consider minor ones. For all types of temptation, let’s pray that our husbands are protected and guided.

Dear Lord, 

Temptation is everywhere. I ask that you help my husband to avoid situations where he may face temptation. Enable him to flee from evil and seek good in all things. When he does become faced with temptation, God, may he hold strong to you and to your word, and make the right choices. Fill him with your strength and fortitude for whatever challenges he faces. Surround him with your goodness and your holy grace. Amen. 

Prayer of gratitude

Even when I am short on time, I do try to offer up a morning prayer for my husband. This is usually a short “coverall” prayer that simply expresses my own gratitude for the gift of my husband.

Dear God,

Thank you so much for my husband. I can’t imagine my life without him and he means the world to me. Help him to know what a blessing and a gift he is to me. Please help me to show my gratitude and adoration for him with my words and actions. Let me never take him for granted, Lord. Please bless him and keep him. Amen.

 

To be the wife your husband needs

Dear God,

My husband deserves the best wife. Please help me to be that woman. As hard as it can be, help me to put him first and be selfless. Though I will never be perfect Lord, grant me the endurance to keep trying. Help to remember that by serving him, I am also serving you. By loving him, I am also loving you. Help me to be more like you so that I can love him with the love of Christ. Amen.

 

For him to feel God’s love

Finally, don’t forget to pray that your husband experiences the overwhelming love of God in his life. It can be easy to pray for behaviors, decisions, and struggles, but don’t neglect where it all starts. We love because he first loved us (1 John 4:19).

Dear God, 

You are love. You are everything. More than anything else, allow my husband to be filled with your love. Let him experience the beauty of your unending love and your goodness. Help this feeling of comfort and security continue throughout his day and everywhere he goes. In giving my husband your love, allow him to love others as you love him. Amen.

 

Thank you Lord, because he is mine

In difficult times, it is so easy to become angry and even turn away from God. But we cannot do that. We must turn to him, because God loves us and wants what is best for us. If our spouse has strayed, we must forgive him or her, not only because it will help our marriage but also because it shows how much we trust God and how loved we are by him. Even if your husband is sinning against you now (and I pray he does not), he still deserves your love and respect; after all, isn’t that what he showed you when you were dating? Pray for his safety as well; maybe he just needs some time alone so that he can think about his actions—and remember how much you love him. Do not give up on your marriage, no matter how dark things may seem right now. Remember: God never gives up on us, and neither should we! Thank you Lord for my husband’s health and happiness! Amen

 

Prayer to bless him with happiness

Is your husband going through a difficult time? Are you at your wit’s end, struggling to help him but not knowing what else to do? Join countless women like you and lift up your husband before God with prayers of thanksgiving, praise, adoration and intercession. Pray that he will be strengthened by love, comforted by consolation and protected from harm so that he can see his way out of whatever difficult situation he is facing. Use this prayer today as a reminder to pray for him specifically over any trials and temptations that might plague him. May our prayers for my husband fall on His ears in difficult times as sweet incense burned on an altar. Amen.
