25 Prayers for My Husband

Earlier in the year, I shared about my prayer binder. I keep lists of prayers for my children, for myself, for my husband, for friends, and so on. I found a few lists online that got me started, but I’m continually tweaking them to fit my own family more specifically. This week I rewrote my list of prayers for my husband, and I’m sharing because I thought it might be a good jumping-off place for some other wives, too. (I’ve compiled this from many different ones, and cannot remember all the sites I began with; sorry!)

25 prayers for my husband

I feel like I have to have a disclaimer because of the topics of some of these prayers: Most of these things are not struggles for Ken, but I pray them so that they do not become a problem, and for encouragement in the many things he is already doing well. It’s when we think we cannot stumble that we are most vulnerable; I don’t want to make that mistake.

This list of twenty-five prayers could easily become a prayer for each day of the month if you add five more personalized prayers for your husband on topics he may be dealing with at work, in your family or marriage, and so on.

      Thank you, things are pretty rockie in our relationship right now, God is working, but this what I really needed Thank you

  1. says

    Praying for our husbands is so important. I know I feel more loved and more secure knowing that my husband is praying for me. I use Power of a Praying Wife most often, but sometimes will do a novena {certain prayers over 9 days for a specific request}, which reminds me, now would be a good time to start another one! God bless you for praying for your husband.

  2. Kelly Ling says

    I just happened to come across your blog. Thank you for this list. My husband has been unemployed since May 2010 and it has been hard. This gives me even more ways to pray for him that I hadn’t thought about. Thank you for this list.

    • Jennifer says

      I just recently got married to my childhood sweet heart. He was working for a temp agency, but they have not had any work for him. He trys so hard to gain employment and keep it, and it is just like when he gets the job something goes wrong. I know that God has something for him. Tonight I felt the need to pray for my husband and to keep him strong and encouraged. I just love this man

      • Tiyanjane says

        Hi Jennifer,

        Its sad that you hubby has problems with jobs. read Malachi chapter 3 about tithe. whatever source of income you have,give a tenth of it to God has he commanded and He will take care of more sources of income in terms of a job for yo hubby. sometimes no matter how much we pray for a breakthrough in jobs or finances,if we do not tithe its like we are just wasting our time. be encouraged!

  3. Penny Lane says

    This is a great list. Thank you so much for sharing. I just recently started my own prayer journal, though right now it is not very organized.

  4. Tana says

    that was wonderful to find. I will print it out and be able to have more specific prayers for my husband, even though like yours, mine is not encumbered with many of the horrible vices men & women might have today, it is always a blessing to be praying for them daily and specifically. Thank you, Tana

  5. Tami says

    I came across your prayer list on Pintrest and wanted to say thank you so much!
    I have printed this and will be praying though the scriptures and your list for my husband.

  6. says

    I just found your blog because someone pinned this post on Pinterest (another Pinterest junkie here) So far i LOVE what I’ve seen on your blog!!! awesome!! I will definitely be a new follower. :)
    Thanks!!! Kristina

  7. says

    I found your blog through Pinterest also!! I love this idea for praying these scriptures for our husbands. If I wanted to share this on my blog how would you prefer it? Putting a link to your blog for them to see it or printing on my blog with a link to your blog?
    Thanks again!!!

    • says

      Thanks for reading! If you’d like to share on your blog, you are welcome to use a small excerpt, with a link to the rest of the post, that would be fine. :)

  8. Angie says

    This is so cool, I’m going to start using these 25 items to pray for my future husband! Thanks for posting this.

  9. says

    I am another Jaimie (two i’s) and found your post by a link on Ann Voskamp’s blog. I have been married for four months, and I so appreciate this encouragement to pray for my husband!! Thank you so much. I will definitely be making use of this. Blessings to you!!

  10. says

    i absolutely love the biblical prayers for your spouse…THANK YOU, Jamie, for your sharing heart. This baby is going straight to my printer! May your marriage be richly blessed in Him.

    Your SIster In Christ,

  11. says

    Husband and I were married 4 months ago. I have felt myself leaning on him instead of leaning on Christ. Thank you for these prayers that I can now pray intentionally for him, and for myself as meaning for him. What a blessing to find.

  12. says

    THANK YOU for sharing this list! What a blessing to stumble upon it at a time when I really need to pray for my husband. You are so right in saying that we are most vulnerable when we think we can’t stumble.

  13. says

    I found you through Pinterest, of course. :)

    I want to start praying these for my future husband. I pray for him often, but I love that this list helps me pray so specifically. Do you have any tips on HOW I should pray these? One every day? Several a day? I would love some input!

    • says

      I usually just pray a few each day. Sometimes I start with the first 2 or 3, then do the next 2 or 3 the following day, etc. Or if I know my husband is dealing with something in particular, I’ll skip to a prayer that covers that topic. It’s really just a great jumping-off place so that I always have something I pray for him.
      Glad you found me, and hope you come back to visit! 😉

  14. says

    Amazing. Prayer is powerful and God is teaching me more about that every day… especially SPECIFIC prayers. This list is wonderful… I am going to be praying them for my husband.
    Blessings, Dana

  15. Hannah says

    I love this! Right now, I am not married, or even dating anyone, but I’m going to print this out and begin praying it for my future husband.

    • says

      Kelly – I don’t, but I think you could probably reword the majority of these to pray for a father, as most are just about being a godly man. Thanks for the suggestion, and I’ll see if I can work on something like this!

  16. Jennifer says

    Thank you for sharing; which can be so hard to do in times of intimate details like this between a husband and a wife. I too found this because of pinterest….. and I know I will tweak and grow this list.

  17. Barb says

    Wow! This is exactly what I have been looking for. Thank you so much for sharing your creative writing talents with the world. I will share this with many of my married friends. Blessings to you!

  18. says

    Yes, YAY for Pinterest, indeed! I write a “Marriage Monday” post each week — next week (the 5th) mine will be about praying for your spouse. I was … “researching” (procrastinating) on Pinterest and came across this! Awesomeness! Will definitely link up on my blog post. Praying for our spouses is such a blessing and privilege. Thank you for a great guide and reminder!

  19. Mary Small says

    I have been married for four months, and I so appreciate this encouragement to pray for my husband!! May your marriage be richly blessed in Him.

  20. Lauren says

    I, like others, found this on Pinterest. I cried when reading this list of prayers! My husband is truly amazing and I will be using this list for sure. Thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful and inspirational part of your relationship with us.

  21. Rachel says

    Just wanted to say, I stumbled upon this and I’m not married but this list is something I will do every day for my future spouse!! So thank you!

  22. Tina Thiel says

    I’m new to your blog. This list is such a beautiful gift to your husband. Thank you for sharing it.

  23. says

    Thank you!! This is great. I find that it’s a challenge to pray for my husband, just knowing what to pray and having a list for anything is so helpful for me. I do that same thing with my kids, I’ve written lists for them and scriptures, but I need to be praying more for my husband!! Blessings-

  24. says

    Hi Jamie, I told you I’d be stopping by. I love your prayer list! I must admit that lately I feel like I’ve been neglecting my husband in prayer and have recently been convicted to shape up! You came along at just the right time! thanks!

  25. asha says

    Love the 25 Prayers for your husband! I found you on pinterest and was wondering if you’d be able to give me the 25 prayers for Your Wife that you mentioned you also have?
    What a beautiful idea! I wanted to gift my hubby with it. and share with others:)
    Thank you!

  26. Meyokie Govan says

    Thank you so much for that great ideas my husband is a young Minister and need to learn how to pray for him I’m so proud of the man he has become and I know if his mom and dad were here they would be proud of him too. I also would like a copy of the 25 prayers that’s shown on this page sent to me please I would like to share those in my church.

  27. Kelle says

    I am on day 18. The deeper I get into this project the more I am convinced you wrote this for me and not you! My husband doesn’t struggle with many of these either but the issues or concerns we do have, have always been talks on the table. This is really opening our eyes and changing our hearts. The verse today is one I’ve read many times but today I heard it out loud for the first time. Thank you for sharing this amazing gift with others. It has made a difference in my life as much as his. =)

  28. says

    about five of us married ladies have joined together to start a sort of Love Project. we’re using your prayers along with a book to help us through to being more intentional in our marriages. Thanks so much!!!

  29. says

    What a fantastic idea! I was reading through, thinking ‘oh, wouldn’t this be wonderful if there was a printable version!’ And lo and behold there was!! Thank you so much – it really was a gift!

  30. Greatful daughter says

    Thank you so much for blessing me with these powerful praying scriptures.
    I have found every prayer you have provided for me to pray for my husband. Has covered a prayer for every aspect in my husband life. I have seen,the fruits.Im truly greatful for the tools God has provided for my marriage.We just celebrated 27 Years of marriage.God is faithful!

  31. Christy says

    This may seem somewhat odd but I’ve been divorced for 5, almost 6 years now. Deep in my heart I still love my husband. I now have a spiritual calling to pray for him. I’ve seen many list such as yours posted on Pinterest. So when I decided to pray in advance for a miracle this was logically place to start. I’m not sure what God has in store for our relationship but I’m going to trust Him to deliver.

  32. Carlos says

    I AM a husband who struggles daily with unemployment, kids, money, depression, low self-esteem and defending our marriage from negative external forces! Thank you for these wonderful prayers…they are a relief and delight to me to see someone dedicate themselves to their husband like this through prayer! I too thank the Lord every day for my wonderful wife and we have a truly blessed union. GOD BLESS YOU.

  33. says


    Thank you so much for this post! It was very encouraging, helpful, and a delight to read. Thank you again for these prayer suggestions. I will certainly start praying them.

    Please check out my blog which has articles, etc. on a variety of topics including: “Marriage”, “Women”, “God’s word”, “Self Esteem”, “The Importance of Family”, “Purity”, “Prayer”, and “Our Need for God.”
