Welcome to your seven-day guided prayer devotional for praying for your wife. These prayers are short, rooted in the Bible, and meant to meet your heart as you pray for the woman 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 wife’s name in place of “wife”.
· 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 wife’s life, and stir the desire to continue intentionally praying for her beyond these seven days.
You will find a daily challenge at the end of each days prayer. Some days it will feel difficult to carry these challenges. Yet, in these moments when we choose obedience to God over our feelings, our hearts are drawn closer to The Lord and your wife.
Loving Her Well
Lord, I pray that my heart is reverent to you and your truth as I lead my wife. Jesus, increase in me the desire to love my wife deeply and in the way you have commanded: to love her the way Christ loves His church. I pray that she would feel pursued, adored, and honored by me. May she see outwardly that I’m thankful for the opportunity to steward her heart. I pray that she would experience your love in an undeniable way today. In Jesus’ name, amen.
And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. Colossians 3:14 ESV
