40 Dynamic Prayers for Your Husband to Heal & Restore His Soul

by | Relationship Burnout

Sandra, I want to pray for my husband. But what are some prayers for my husband I can pray?

Great question from an earnest, loving wife. So, let’s get to it!

Your Prayers Matter

To speak words of faith, hope, and love over your husband is a tremendous gift. To believe on their behalf is precious and powerful. Not a small thing, my friend.

In fact, scripture tells us our prayers are the very incense of heaven. The prayers for my husband and the prayers for your husband – reach up joining forces in the heavenly realm with Christ, our Intercessor, and Advocate. Your prayers also join forces with the great cloud of witnesses who have gone before you, cheering you and your husband on.

My friend, your prayers are integral to your husband’s life. You’re their champion—the heroine in their story. Like an uncredited role in a movie, perhaps no one will see your prayer life as the credits roll. But, in the heavenly realm? Oh man, you are known, and your prayers are kept and treasured.

You’re a Fierce Lioness

So, take heart! Come boldly to the throne of Grace.

Full disclosure, prayers for my husband, Larry Dale, are raw and intense. I cry out all the cares of my heart concerning him. All the worries I’m carrying. And the hopes and dreams stuff too. So in your prayers for your husband, I encourage you to cry out anything and everything in your heart. No need to filter. No need to try and find the right words. For you are known and understood by your Abba Father. He gets you and knows precisely what’s on your mind and in your soul.

So, let go and let loose. Shed the weight..the burden you’re carrying. The pent-up angst in your body. The tears, frozen in silence. Let go and let loose.

You have a seat at the table, sister. And there’s nothing more fierce or beautiful than the prayers from a woman’s heart for her man. You are a wonderous lioness in partnership with Jesus, the majestic Lion of Judah. Oh yes, this is who you are. Now, let me hear you roar!
