This week I am addressing wives. Praising God and praying His will for your spouse is guaranteed to be your most rewarding work as his wife. With this powerful prayer, you will be arming your marriage with God’s Word and investing in his role as your spiritual leader.

Ladies, I encourage you to say this prayer. Instead of “my husband” you can substitute his name.

“Heavenly Father, I praise You, the God of all wisdom for husbands. Thank You, God, for knowing the longings of my husband’s heart far better than I do. You know what he hungers for. You know how these yearnings affect his decisions and how those decisions affect our marriage.

You are the God who satisfies the longing soul. You fill the hungry soul with good things. Here is my husband’s heart and soul, Lord. I lift him up to You and ask You to fill him with the good You know He needs.

The world offers him so many things to temporarily satisfy his needs. Temptations abound, but You are his shield and his defender.  Please train him to resist the devil.

I celebrate that You triumph over every one of Satan’s schemes and the scars he has left on my husband’s heart. You are Jehovah Rapha, my husband’s Healer. You are the restorer of his soul. Let the balm of Your perfect love and mercy touch the brokenness of his heart.

You joined Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the fiery furnace, and when they came out unharmed, they didn’t even smell like smoke. Use their courage to inspire my husband to fear You only. I trust You to give him rest and satisfaction while protecting him from harm. Amen.”
