Prayer for Husbands

Heavenly Father,

We come to You today lifting up all the husbands in our lives. We ask that You would grant them wisdom, strength, and integrity as they lead their families.

Father, we pray that they would be faithful and loving husbands, putting their wife’s needs before their own. We pray that they would be examples of Your love and grace to their children and that the love between husband and wife would be a reflection of the love between Christ and His Church.

We pray for the husbands who are facing challenges and struggles, whether in their marriage, at work, or in other areas of their lives. We ask that You would give them the grace and strength to persevere and that they would find their hope and comfort in You.

We pray that all husband’s relationship with You would be strengthened, that they would come to know You more deeply, and that they would find their identity and purpose in You.

We thank You for the men You have blessed us with in our lives, and we trust in Your goodness and faithfulness.

We pray all this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
