25 Ways To Pray for Your Future Husband {Part 1}


I recently read this beautiful post from Darlene at Time-Warp-Wife, “31 Ways To Pray For Our Children”.  This wonderful post inspired me to create something similar for you!

Here is a list of 25 ways that you can be praying for your future husband, whether you’ve met him yet or not.

Prayer is a powerful thing because we have a powerful God.  Don’t miss the blessing and benefits of prayer in your life and in the life of your future husband.

Here is the list, in no particular order:

 

1.)  Pray that he will continue to grow and change more and more into the image of Christ.

“For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate [to be] conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.”  -Romans 8:29 {KJV}

 

2.)  Pray that YOU will constantly be growing and sanctified into the beautiful helpmeet He needs.

“Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor enslaved to much wine, teaching what is good, so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored.”  -Titus 2:3-5 {NASB}

 

3.)  Pray that the Gospel will impact him not only in salvation but also in every area of his life.

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, ” BUT THE RIGHTEOUS man SHALL LIVE BY FAITH.”  -Romans 1:16-17

 

4.)  Pray that He will be strong in the Lord and fight against the Lust of the flesh, guarding his purity.   

 “No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.”  -1 Corinthians 10:13 

 

5.)  Pray that he will own the truth that, real strength is controlled strength:  meekness, gentleness and Spirit-filled Boldness.

“but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.”  -1 Peter 3:15-16 

 

6.)  Pray that self-control would dominate His life.  

“A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls.”  -Proverbs 25:28 {ESV}

 

7.)  Pray that He would have a hunger for knowledge and wisdom.

“How much better to get wisdom than gold! To get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver.”  -Proverbs 16:16

 

8.)  Pray for spiritual and practical maturity well beyond his years.

“But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.”  -James 3:17 {ESV}

 

9.)  Pray that good, strong servant-leadership skills would be cultivated in his heart.

“For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body……Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her”  -Ephesians 5 {NASB}

 

10.)  Pray for the Lord’s sovereign protection in his life.

“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”  -Psalm 91:1-2 {NASB}

 

11.)  Pray that he would have direction and that he would prepare for the future.

“But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”  -James 1:5 {NASB}

 

12.)  Pray that he would have a heart of forgiveness and that forgiveness would be granted to him.

“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”  -Ephesians 4:32 {NASB}

 

Very soon I will share the second half of the list plus a FREE printable!

  1. Thank you so much for this, Ashley. It is a blessing to my sisters and I to have this prayer reminder. There are many times that I forget to pray about my future husband even though I have a small journal that is dedicated just to him. So this is a another sweet reminder! Thank you and God bless. =) Proverbs 31:30

  2. Thank you so much for this! I’m looking forward to the printable for use in praying for my husband of 14 years! This post would be great for my Homemaking Link Up Weekend if you’d like to come join!

    Have a lovely weekend!

  3. These are great! I hadn’t thought of all of them. One of my prayers is that he will be an impact to those around him, I guess that goes with being a leader-servant. I pray that he would have evangelical tendencies (not a requirement necessarily) because I would love to share in that type of ministry with my future husband.

  4. Thank you for this list Ashley! My hubby and I were married 12 years ago and were very active in church but no one told us the importance of praying hard for each other. I look forward to applying this list to how I pray for my husband now! I’m also copying it down in my journal so I can share it with my daughter when she’s of age and looking to get married. I have 2 young sons as well, and I will be praying these into their lives! This is pure gold!
