Calling all wives and future wives! We are in a powerful position to pray for our husbands. Let’s lift them up today before the King of kings and Lord of lords as only we can as their Covenant Partners in marriage. Join me in this powerful prayer for wives to pray over their husbands daily:
Lord Jesus, today I lift my husband up to you. I pray blessing, anointing, and power over him, in Jesus’ mighty name. Lord I ask that you would place a hedge of protection around him. Guide him in all of his ways, speak to him and through him. Help him in his work and as the leader of our home. Lord please give him wisdom he can only receive from you. Help him to recognize it and receive it. I speak favor over him with You and with people. I pray divine inspiration and success over him.
Lord draw him closer and closer to you. Give him a hunger for Your Word and a thirst for prayer. I pray that he would daily seek your face, hear your voice, and work out his own salvation in fear and trembling.
I pray healing over his body and his soul. I break every word curse spoken out against him, in Jesus’ name! May all idle words and curses fall to the ground and their seeds will not bear fruit. I plead the blood of Jesus over my husband, the work of his hands, the perfect will of God for his life, our marriage, and our family. Give him the grace to put you first and obey in all things. Lord, only you know his greatest temptations and the secret petitions of his heart—please meet him at his place of greatest need and lead him in the way everlasting.
I pray that you would draw other men to him that he can relate to and receive from—who love You above anything else in their lives. Allow them to be knitted together as David was to Jonathan. Bring him righteous men of God to study your Word with, pray with, and hold one another accountable.
I ask, Lord, for your grace over my husband to parent our children. Reveal to him Your Father’s heart and show him what our children need from him. Give him the strength and wisdom to represent you well before our children and groom them for a passionate relationship with You and great success in their callings.
Lord, help me to be a respectful and honoring wife to my husband. Reveal to me the special ways that I alone can minister to him. Show me anywhere that I may offend him and not realize it. Give me the grace to help him and love him exactly as you would have me do so. Expose and heal anything in me that is displeasing to you and hindering to my marriage. I humble myself before you and lay myself down– mind, will, and emotions– so I can become more of you, in Jesus’ name.
Satan I command you to retreat from my husband in Jesus’ name. He belongs to the Most High God along with the rest of our household and you hold no claim over us. I take authority over you right now and render you harmless in our lives.
Host of Heaven, I command you to forth now and pull down any strongholds that are hindering my husband or our family. Bring in from the North, South, East, and West everything he needs to fulfill the will of God and provide for our family. Protect him in all of his ways, expose and destroy the plots and plans of the enemy, and make his crooked places straight, in Jesus name.
Father God I thank you for my husband, my covenant partner. Thank you for the holy work that marriage can do in us. Thank you for the blessing of such an intimate earthly relationship. Thank you for the authority you give us to pray for one another. I commit my husband, marriage, family, and self to you, in Jesus’ name. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Amen.

Thank you Lord for inspiring your daughter to post that prayer. What a ministry and avoid a blessing. I read it over slowly allowed… Well looking at pictures of my beloved husband… Loving him speaking words of the prayer. The moment I ended the prayer the phone rang it was my beloved husband but the sweetness and a joy in his voice I have not heard in 15 years. Holy Spirit prayers work! The word of God works. The word of God works for all of us!
Thax for the good prayer. I love it
Thank you for being led by the Holy Spirit to publish such a powerful prayer. I desire to pray daily for my husband in and out of season. I’m already seeing the fruit from intentionally praying for my husband.
I pray daily that my husband becomes the man of our house, by not being selfish and thinking just of himself. I pray daily that he no longer use man or feel that man owe him. I pray that he put aside his wants and focus on his needs. I pray whatever demons he has from his childhood to adulthood that he’s able to turn it over to God, fully release it that neither himself or his family no longer have to suffer. I pray he focus on his health, be the amazing husband and father that I know he can be. As I put this end I myself is releasing my husband to God as I myself is not perfect but I can’t continue to worry his faith. I have to worry about my walk with God
This prayer is amazing. Thanks so much. My. husband and I are separated but I Amen believing God for a great reunion
This is an awe inspiring prayer .It is exactly what I was looking for.The challenges come every day in the form of behaviour , remarks ,situations but I committed myself to reacting positively and waiting on God on what I was to do next.So deep inside a voice spoke to me saying , decide to react positively and then I prayed Lord give me a prayer which can express what I feel , and then I found this.Thanks so much
What a great and powerful prayer. Thank you so much for letting the Holy Spirit work through you. God bless you and all of our wonderful husbands! ❤️
This prayer is an answered prayer. Thank you for sharing this. May God continue to keep you and your home. May His peace never elude you all. May He give you more grace for ministry.
Thank you so very much for these words. I am not yet married, but I say this prayer daily for my future husband as we are struggling right now. These words are so powerful and give me peace knowing I am praying for everything good for him and us.
Such a powerful prayer to speak over your husband. Thank you for sharing! I agree with this prayer for my husband and family as well in Jesus’ name!
Thank you so much.This is just what was needed.Its the prayer of my heart.
Please help me pray for my husband.. I have been psychologically and emotionally abuse.. All i pray for our marriage is unity, understanding and peace but it seems he had a problem.. He always have bad toughts on me regarding with other man even i dont do anything he is capable of creating on his mind that i am unfaithful to him.. I dont know what to do im always suffering this everyday.. I pray for GOD’S guidance
YES! We will absolutely pray for you, your husband, and your marriage. I am so sorry you are going through such pain, Sister. God never wanted it for you and my heart breaks for you. Since you mentioned the relationship is abusive– you may want to also read this post I wrote for women in abusive relationships. It gives some steps forward. https://www.createapeacefulhome.com/woman-whos-verbally-emotionally-sexually-andor-physically-abused/ BLESSINGS Sister!
I pray that my husband and i can communicate,period. He gets so defensive, and it is his way or the highway. His opinion is all that matters, and if it is not in agreement with his, he can go from calm to irate in .001 seconds, voice loud. Any real disagreement and we don’t talk for weeks. We have go as long aw 2 moths with out talking. He never admits fault, is never wrong, and whe he know he is wrong and i know he is wrong he does not attempt to work on us.
the worst thing is, we make it through each episode, but we never resolve issues, we just get to the other side. Fell and emotions can never be resolved, because we don’t talk about it.
Wow this is indeed a powerful prayer. I’m not married yet but I appreciate saying this prayer. I can’t wait to met my God Ordained Man but before then I cover him with all these prayers. I have someone I want but I don’t know if he’s the will of God for me. Please join me in asking God for a good sense of direction.
Thank you for this through tears from a wife that so desperately needed it! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I’ve been spending a few days praying this prayer over my husband as we are currently separated due to his repeated infidelity. I’m praying that he has a want to desire God and make changes in his life that follow God’s will for him. I’ve released him to God but I can still pry for him as well. I have found more peace with the situation after releasing him to God along with our marriage and what may become of it.
Kristy– I have heard great things from someone I trust about Heart to Heart Counseling Center: https://www.drdougweiss.com/
They specialize in helping couples with cases of repeated infidelity.
I am so very sorry that you’re walking through such a hardship. Keep pressing into God and if you stay together, please get the help you need to have a healthy and safe relationship. You deserve it, sister!
