Praying for our husbands and our marriages is the ultimate love language. It takes work! It may be easier to stay committed to prayer if we meet regularly with a trusted friend (emphasis on the word trusted.It is too easy to turn a prayer time into a complaining time so be wise!).

“Lord,

I pray that you will bless the work of my husband’s hands. May his labor bring not only favor, success and prosperity, but great fulfillment as well. If the work he is doing is not in line with Your perfect will for his life, reveal it to him. Show him what he should do differently and guide him down the right path.


Give him strength, faith and a vision for the future so he can rise above any propensity for laziness. May he never run from fear out of fear, selfishness or a desire to avoid responsibility.

On the other hand, help him to see that he doesn’t have to work himself to death for man’s approval or grasp for gain beyond what is a gift from You.Give him the ability to enjoy his success without striving for more. Help him to excel but free him from the pressure to do so.” (from the Power of a Praying Wife by Stormie Omartian)
