10 Things to Pray for Your (future) Husband

June 1, 2015

A couple of years ago I mentioned that I pray for my future husband on a regular basis. I try to set aside specific times each day to pray for him. I started this practice years and years ago because even though I don't know who my future husband is or when we will marry I do know that when I am married I will want prayer to be a regular part of my life with my husband and for my husband so I have tried to begin the habit now and get into the practice. 

One of the things things I get asked most often from those who are single is what exactly what I pray for my future husband so I wanted to re-share today one of my most read blog posts of just a few of the things that I pray for him (in no particular order). If you are married I highly encourage you to pray for your husband and if you are single or engaged, I encourage you to start praying for your future husband starting now! (And if you are single and looking for what to pray for yourself during this season of life, my book, "Prayers for the Single Journey" was released in February! You can read about the contents of the book HERE! I hope that you will find it encouraging! You can find it where books are sold and on Amazon, HERE!) 

(One) I pray that if he does not know the Lord that he would surrender his life to the Lord and if he does know the Lord as his personal savior that he would grow in his relationship with the Lord daily.(John 3:16)

(Two) I pray that I would begin to even now prepare to be a good wife for my husband and would treat him with loving actions- in my words and deeds, and that I would give him the respect, love, and graciousness that is due to him everyday.(Proverbs 31:10-31)

(Three) I pray that his self-image and identity would be found in Christ alone and I also pray for my the work that he does. {This may seem strange to tie these two together but I have know so many men that struggle with making work their identity.}

(Four) I pray that he would remain pure and would be free from any past decisions. (Isaiah 43:18-19) I also pray that he would be  free from temptation (current and in the future). (Romans 12:9)

(FiveI pray that he would be obedient to the ways of the Lord and that he would follow the Lord in all of his ways. (Psalm 25:4,5)

(Six) I pray that he would be set free from fears that he may have: of his career, future, present, past, etc. I pray that he would find deliverance from his fears in the Lord's love. (I John 4:18)

(Seven) I pray that his heart would be sensitive to the things of the Lord and that his talk would reflect his heart. (Proverbs 4:23 and Psalms 34:12-13)I pray that he would know his purpose clearly and where the Lord is calling him. (Psalm 20:4) 

(Eight) I pray that he would have good health. 

(Nine) I pray that the Lord would comfort him and sustain him during any trials that he is dealing with currently. (Psalm 46:1)

(TenI pray that the Lord would bless him with amazing godly friends. I pray that he will also have good relationships with everyone that is in his life. 

Are there any specific prayers that you pray for your future spouse about? I would love to hear what things you pray for! Please share with us in the comments! 


  1. I love this post!!! I pray for my future husband (not daily, but occasionally.) One of my prayers is that he will be the strong leader of the household.... and I also pray that I'm being molded into a Godly wife.
