I have mentioned many times here on the blog that I pray for my future husband on a regular basis. I try to spend time each day praying for him, knowing that when I am married to him that I will want to make prayer a regular part of my life with my husband and for my husband. One of the things that I get asked repeatedly is what exactly I pray for my future husband so I have shared in the past a post on 10 Things to Pray for Your (Future) Husband which can be found HERE. I also have shared 10 Things I Pray for Myself as a (Future) Wife which can be found HERE.
Today I wanted to share 10 more things that you can pray for your (future) husband. 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!
(One) I pray that my future husband would have a hunger for God's word, a passion to know Christ above anything and anyone else.
(Two) I pray that my future husband would have big and daring dreams to change the world for Christ. I pray that he will not be content to just accept the world the way that it is, but have a passion for a calling that is uniquely His.
(Three) I pray that my future husband would dream big dreams and attempt big things for God, but also have the unique understanding on how to love the people that are placed in front of him. That he would have a genuine understanding of Mother Theresa saying, "Want to change the world? Go home and love your family".
(Four) I pray that my husband would be filled with joy. I pray that he would know the love of Christ so intimately and that he is filled with strength and dignity so that he can laugh at the days to come (Proverbs 31:25) because his ultimate source of peace is found solely in God.
(Five) I pray that my future husband is delivered from any trials that he is currently going through. I pray that the Lord would write a redemptive story out of any circumstance that he is going through.
(Six) I pray that my husband would have great discernment that comes from knowing Jesus Christ. I pray that he would consult God before anything and anyone else and pray for wisdom for each and every decision that he is facing whether it be small or big.
(Seven) I pray that even now the Lord is developing him to be an excellent father to our future children. I pray that he would have a heart for raising up men and women who love the Lord more than anything else, that he would develop patience and laughter, and that he would have a heart for the orphan.
(Eight) I pray that my husband would be protected... protected physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
(Nine) I pray that even now the Lord would be preparing his heart for me alone. That our hearts would be joined together by God, the tapestry for this being woven right now as we pray and wait for each other.
(Ten) I pray that my future husband would be a man of prayer. I pray that this will be a hallmark and benchmark of his life, understanding the importance and necessity of prayer.
Are there any specific prayers that you pray for your future spouse? I would love to hear what things you pray for!
