Praying for Your Husband

Is your husband a key focal point of your prayers? If so, your husband is a blessed man! To make him your special “prayer project” for life, here are a few suggestions—and cautions—to keep in mind.

Pray without expecting instant results. God is always at work. and He doesn’t work according to your timetable. Applying this knowledge to your prayers for your husband will calm your heart.
Pray, even when you don’t feel like it. When you are discouraged or frustrated with what is or isn’t happening in your marriage, pray! God knows your heart, your dreams and desires… and your sorrows.

Pray, expecting to do battle. Hopefully your husband is praying for you, but even if he isn’t, you must embrace your role as a prayer warrior. It’s vital that you see yourself as a soldier doing battle when you pray for your beloved husband.

Pray, knowing the Holy Spirit is interceding as well. Sometimes we as wives don’t know how to pray for our husbands. When this happens you can know that the Holy Spirit knows and is making intercession on your man’s behalf (Romans 8:26).

Pray, leaving the results to God. God tells His people to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17). And so you do as He asks and pray! But the real comfort in praying for your husband is leaving your requests in God’s lap, so to speak. Yes, you pray. And yes, you watch and wait for results. And yes, you may pray and watch and wait for decades. But each day-and every time you experience even a hint of anxiety or frustration-you are to lay your concerns into God’s hands to do as He wills and when He wills. “Let your requests be made known to God.” And afterward? You experience “the peace of God” (Philippians 4:6-7).
