Prayer for Spiritual Wisdom
God of Wind and Fire, I thank You for my husband – for his faith in You and for his love for the saints and for our family. I ask that You fill my husband to the brim with the knowledge of Your will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding. Make him complete in discernment and insight into the things of God. I pray in the glorious name of Jesus, the image of the invisible God. Amen.
Prayer to Prevail over Evil
God of Discernment, I intercede for my husband and ask that Your Holy Spirit will guide and teach him so that he will walk in a manner worthy of You. May he please You in every way. Lord, I know he has many temptations that would distract his attention from You and into sin. I pray that he would prevail over the forces of evil, and love You with all his heart, soul, and mind. Amen.
Prayer for Husband to Bear Fruit
O God, Light in the Darkness, I pray that my husband would bear fruit in every good work. May he produce the fruit of Your Holy Spirit – may he be known as a man of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. May he also harvest the fruit of souls, bringing many into Your Kingdom through his words and loving actions. In the name of Jesus, firstborn over all creation. Amen.
Prayer for Increase in Intimacy with God
God of All Power, I pray that my husband will be continually increasing, making non-stop progress in his first-hand experiential knowledge of You. As he grows in his intimacy with You, give him the ability and strength through Your dynamic Holy Spirit power, according to Your glorious might, so that he will have perseverance in his faith, be slow to anger, and be full of joy as he delights in You. Amen.
Prayer for Husband to be a Man of Praise
Oh Lord, our Great Provider, I ask that my husband cultivate the habit of consistently offering You praise and thanksgiving, for praise is the highway to Your throne, Your heart, and to Your mighty work. May he be full of gratitude that he lives in the light, rescued from the dominion of darkness and brought into the Kingdom of Your beloved Son Jesus, in whose name we pray, Amen.
Prayer for Many-sided Strength
God our Mighty Warrior, I pray You would bless my husband with the uninterrupted process of strengthening him for the many challenges in life. May he experience a continual dying to self, so that his spirit is perpetually renewed by Your Holy Spirit. I pray that this many-sided strength would lift him to the higher life in You that few believers experience. May he understand the unlimited power that is his through You – that same power that raised Christ from the dead. Amen.
Prayer to be Unshakable and Unstoppable
O Rock of Strength, I ask that You make my husband unshakable in his faith and unstoppable for Your Kingdom. May Your divine strength enable him to confront the antagonism of evil without his soul being shaken. May he exhibit mountain-moving faith, unafraid of impossible odds. May he work relentlessly to bring souls into Your fold and to teach and manifest true discipleship. May he stand firmly on Your promises. Amen
Prayer to Grasp the Power of God
O Lord, our Miracle-Worker, I pray that my husband will grasp the transcendent and immeasurable power of the Holy Spirit that is in him, which passes comprehension. May he understand that the same power that raised Jesus from the grave and seated Him at the right hand of the Father is living and breathing within him. May he understand the impossibilities that are possible through Christ. May he use Your divine power to do what You have given him to do. Amen.
Prayer to Understand the Impact of the Spiritual Realms
Divine Defender, I pray that You will give my husband insight into warfare in the invisible, spiritual world, and how it impacts our visible physical world through relationships that are strained, emotions that are unstable, exhaustion, anger, pride, lack of forgiveness, and more. Through this insight, may my husband do battle in the spiritual realm against the wiles of the devil, taking up all of the weapons of warfare which You have provided. Amen.
Prayer to Open Spiritual Eyes
Great Commander, I pray that You will give spiritual vision to my husband. Open up his spiritual eyes to see the activity of our great adversary, the devil. Open his eyes to be aware of the spiritual resources with which You have blessed him so that he can disarm the devil and defeat his evil attacks on our family. We pray for Your help in this battle, knowing that victory is available through Your power. Amen.
Prayer to Recognize the Devil’s Deception
Father of Lights, I ask that You enable my husband to recognize the strategy of Satan, and how he operates through deception. May my husband not fall prey to the lies of the enemy about who he is, who You are, what is true, and what is essential. Protect my husband from Satan’s manipulation of the truth, and may my beloved avoid being led down the wrong path and being disconnected from You, our source of power and strength. Amen.
Prayer to Overcome Tactics of Darkness
Father of Strength, I urgently pray that my husband will overcome the temptations which appeal to his base desires, and which arise when he is most vulnerable. May my husband realize that the adversary and his demons are engaging in tactics specifically designed and timed to cause him to fall prey to evil, to fall out of fellowship with You, and to fall away from the abundant life in Christ. May my husband successfully resist these ploys. Amen.
Prayer for Discernment of Where the Enemy Attacks
Lord of Truth, I pray that Your Spirit will guide my husband to prayerfully discern where spiritual attacks are most likely to come from. Help him use Your strength and take measures to defend himself in his points of strength and his points of weakness. Through prayer, may he safeguard himself against the cunning of the devil, who prowls about like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Amen.
Prayer for the Power of the Tongue
God of Wisdom, help my husband to understand that life and death are in the power of the tongue. May he speak words that are pure and edifying, and may he speak out the truths and promises of Your Word over negative and problematic situations. Keep him from speaking careless words that reflect a lack of faith and that are harmful to himself and others, for we must all give an account to You on the Day of Judgment for every careless word we have spoken. Amen.
Prayer for Spirit-filled Parenting
Father in Heaven, I know that one of our greatest spiritual battles is to raise our children to know and love and obey You and to be resilient against the evil one. Help my husband, as the spiritual head of our household, to guide our children toward spiritual maturity and Christ-likeness and a deep and abiding relationship with You. May he use discipline wisely, teach and counsel at the appropriate times, and model Godly character before them. Amen.
