Prayer for a Husband

Dear Lord,

I lift up my husband to You today, asking that You would bless him and watch over him. May he know Your love and presence in a deep and personal way.

I pray that You would give him wisdom and discernment in all things, and that You would guide him in making decisions that are pleasing to You. May he be a man of integrity and honor, and may he serve You with all his heart.

I pray that You would protect him from temptation and danger, and that You would give him the strength and courage to resist any forces that seek to harm him. May he be a strong and courageous leader for our family, and may he always put You first in his life.

I pray that You would bless our marriage, and that You would help us to grow closer to You and to each other. May we support and encourage each other in all things, and may we be a blessing to those around us.

Thank You for my husband, and for the love and joy he brings to my life. I trust in Your goodness and faithfulness, and I know that You will work all things together for our good.

In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
