Welcome to your seven-day guided prayer devotional for praying for your husband! These prayers are short, rooted in the Bible, and meant to meet your heart as you pray for the man God entrusted to you.
For a deeper dive in this seven-day guide, take time to sit with the scripture at the end of each prayer. Write down your thoughts and speak God’s truth over your marriage aloud. God and His word are the only things powerful enough to change people at a heart level.
Personalize your prayers:
· Say your husband's name in place of "husband"
· Write down the day's prayer in a journal and add your specific prayer requests for the topic
The hope behind this plan is that these short prayers and scriptures will cause you to lean into Jesus, trust the Lord with your husband's life, and stir the desire to continue intentionally praying for him beyond these seven days.
You will find a daily challenge at the end of each devotion. I know some days it will feel difficult to carry out because I have been there. Yet, in these moments when we choose obedience to God over our feelings, our hearts are drawn closer to Him and our husband.
Loving Him Well
Lord, I pray that my heart would lean into you more than anyone or anything else. Jesus, give me a deep desire to love my husband the way you've called me to. Guide my heart as I love him out of obedience to you and not solely based on the way he serves me. I pray that my husband would feel seen, heard, and respected by me. I pray that his heart would experience you in a new way today and seek you above all things. In Jesus' name, amen.
And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. Colossians 3:14
Day 1 challenge:
Leave your husband a note where he'll see it first thing in the morning telling him something you love about him.
