[BLOG POST] 10 ways to pray for your husband in 2017
Prayer Builds Stronger Marriages
— FierceMarriagecom

Recently I watched the movie "War Room" and the movie inspired me to pray for my marriage the more.

If you haven't watched it, it is a must see. I totally identified with the story line as it reminded me of my marriage crises and how prayers were very instrumental to the resuscitation and resurrection of my marriage.

Unlike Elizabeth (in the movie), I didn't have someone who came into my life at that time to teach me how to pray for my marriage and I didn't have a dedicated prayer closet.

But I had encouragement from my family and close friends, I had written prayer requests in my journaling app on my phone and sometimes in different jotters around the house and tried to pray for my marriage whenever I had the opportunity.

This blog post is dedicated to wives who want to prayer for their husbands in 2017 or who have been praying for their husbands.

GOD, help me realise that my prayers on his behalf are MORE EFFECTIVE than my words I could speak to him.

In this post, I want to share with you 10 ways to pray for your husband this month. These are not all the prayer requests every husband needs - but by starting with these 10, the intention is for you to:

  • Decide to undergo a 7 Day Prayer Challenge for your husband this month.
  • Cultivate the habit of praying for your husband regularly.

Okay here are 10 ways to pray for your husband in 2017.

  1. Pray that you husband will experience spiritual growth in his relationship with God and become more excited about the things of God.
  2. Pray that God will bless your husband and also prosper his work. [If he is not working, pray that God opens opportunity for him to get a job which he will love and experience fulfilment].
  3. Pray that God will make your husband to be the spiritual leader he is for your family
  4. Pray that God will guard your husband's heart and give him the power to resist sexual temptations. Pray that your husband will only have eyes for you.
  5. Pray that God will help your husband to love you deeply and God will put it in his heart to romance you encourage you, and build you up while supporting your dreams and aspirations.
  6. Pray that God will help your husband to have a heart for his children and sacrifice to spending quality time with them. Furthermore, he will be a Godly parent and become actively involved in training them (your children) to Love God.
  7. Pray for the physical health of your husband. That God will continue to strengthen him and keep him from sickness. 
  8. Pray that God will help your husband to be a wise steward of the family finances and also be a cheerful giver.
  9. Pray for your husband's friends, especially the male friends in his life, that they would build him up, encourage him and will not take him or his heart away from The Lord.
  10. Pray that your husband will enter the fullness of his calling and fulfil his God given PURPOSE.
No matter what we are going through as a couple or who started it - God’s first stop is my heart. He doesn’t begin by fixing my husband. He begins by healing and fixing me
