In childhood, most of us dreamt of getting married and having a family someday.
Thousands of films and television shows depict weddings with the bride and groom reciting their vows lovingly and then walking down the aisle into wedded bliss. However, these crafted weddings aren’t always what they seem.
The movies end with a wedding, but they rarely show us what marriage is really like.
Things can be wonderful but also stressful when you're with your husband. However, if you and your husband remember to pray when under stress, you can receive great comfort from God, who will help you persevere through your challenges.
In this article, we’ll talk about five prayers to say for your husband and your marriage.
Praying can be mysterious at times.
There are times when God answers our prayers with a clear yes or no. Other times, the answer is unclear, and it can be hard to know what God has planned.
However, we should address all of your needs to God through prayer, including the well-being of our loved ones. If you are seeking a Christian spouse, the first step you should take is to pray for God to bless you with one.
Corinthians 13:7 says, “Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”
As you pray, align your prayers with God's word, let the Holy Spirit lead your prayers, and pray about everything you want in a spouse. You should pray for God to help the man or woman who will be your future spouse to live for God.
Prayer has even greater significance if you're already married. Wives' prayers for their husbands have great power. How often do you pray for your spouse? It can be difficult to develop a habit of praying, especially when we are so distracted in our day-to-day lives.
Nevertheless, prayer is vital. For Christians to grow in their faith and become closer to God and their spouse, they must spend time talking with God in prayer. You’ll want to especially rely on prayer if your marriage is facing difficulties.
Fortunately, praying doesn't have to take up a lot of time. You might be better off praying shorter prayers regularly throughout the day if you have a lot to do in the daytime. In fact, there are countless Bible verses encouraging us to pray without ceasing.
Let’s take a look at some powerful prayers you can say to help bless your marriage and your spouse.
As a Christian woman, one of the most beneficial and powerful things for your husband is prayer.

As he spends time in your word every day, may he become a man who can explain and teach your word to me and our children. May you enter my future husband’s heart and bring him to me soon. Amen.
Heavenly Father, your greatest commandment was to love you and each other. Our relationship with you is reflected in marriage, which you have given as a holy relationship.
Help us to put aside our selfishness and pride and humbly serve each other by following your example. Our collective goal is to be of one spirit and one mind, value one another above ourselves, and look out for each other's interests.
Despite our busy schedules, help us to take time to love one another deeply from the heart, just as you have loved us. We hope that our love for each other will serve as an example to the world of how we love you and how your son, Jesus Christ, gave his life for us. We forever remain your devotional servants, Amen.
Good morning God. We thank you for the love you have placed within our hearts. We humbly ask that the love you’ve given us be used to heal the wounds that have been inflicted through harsh words and bad intentions. Your love is a source of inspiration for us to use kind words, be considerate of others' feelings, and care for one another.
Make us more forgiving and understanding of our human weaknesses. Help us increase our faith and trust in you, and let your wisdom guide us in life and love. I pray that you bless our marriage with peace and happiness so that our love may be fruitful here and in eternity for your glory and our joy. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
My dear Lord, I thank you for blessing my husband's work. I ask that you give him a prosperous future. Please give him wisdom and discernment.
God, I pray you give him the strength to accept the many opportunities you provide for him every day. I ask that you keep my husband’s life free from the love of money. Help him be satisfied with what we have while also helping him prosper in the workplace. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
You'll find that the most rewarding work you do as a spouse will be praying for your partner’s welfare while also praising God’s love. You'll arm your marriage with God's word as you use these five prayers for your husband and invest in the role of his spiritual leadership.
