Praying for my husband's faith and future

Several years ago, I read the book Power of a Praying Wife by Stormie Omartian. I really enjoyed the book, and typed up many of the prayers from the book so I could pray them over again for my husband, Joshua. This prayer THE LAST of a blog series on Mondays with prayers for husbands. I encourage you to print the prayers and pray them along with me for your own husband! I hope you will join me in asking God to  work in his faith and his future for our prayer this week...

Prayer for His Faith
Lord, I pray that You will give (name) an added measure of faith today. Enlarge his ability to believe in You, Your Word, Your promises, Your ways, and Your power. Put a longing in His heart to talk with You and hear Your voice. Give him an understanding of what it means to bask in Your presence and not just ask for things. May he seek You, rely totally upon You, be led by You, put You first, and acknowledge You in everything he does.
Lord, You’ve said that “faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God” (Romans 10:17). Feed his soul with Your word so his faith grows big enough to believe that with You all things are possible (Matthew 19:26). Give him unfailing certainty that what You’ve promised to do, You will do (Romans 4:21). Make his faith a shield of protection. Put it into action to move the mountains in his life. Your Word says, “the just shall live by faith” (Romans 1:17); I pray that he will live the kind of faith-filled life that You’ve called us all to experience. May he know with complete certainty “how great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear You, which You have prepared for those who trust in You” (Psalm 31:19).

Prayer for His Future
Lord, I pray that You would give (name) a vision for his future. Help him to understand that Your plans for him are for good and not evil- to give him a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11). Fill him with the knowledge of Your will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that he may have a walk worthy of You, fully pleasing You, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of You (Colossians 1:9,10). May he live with leading from the Holy Spirit and not walk in doubt and fear of what may happen. Help him to mature and grow in You daily, submitting to You all his dreams and desires, knowing that “the things which are impossible with men are possible with God” (Luke 18:27). Give him God-ordained goals and show him how to conduct himself in a way that always invests in his future.  
I pray that he will be active in service for You all the days of his life. Keep him from losing his sense of purpose and fill him with hope for his future as an “anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast” (Hebrews 6:19). Give him his “heart’s desire” (Psalm 21:2), and the heritage of those who fear Your name” (Psalm 61:5). Plant him firmly in Your house and keep him fresh and flourishing and bearing fruit into old age (Psalm 92:13,14). And when it comes time for him to leave this earth and go be with You, may he have such a strong vision for his eternal future that it makes his transition smooth, painless, and accompanied by peace and joy. Until that day, I pray that he will find the vision for his future in You.
Have you brought your husband to God's feet today? Why not do so right now?

Romans 10:17
Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Psalm 92:13-14
...planted in the house of the Lord,
they will flourish in the courts of our God.
They will still bear fruit in old age,
they will stay fresh and green.

  1. I want to thank Stormie for making the book, Power of a Praying Wife available to those who are often lost in their faith when it comes to matrimony. The book has helped my marriage stay strong in the Lords word. Thanks again for making this book possible for all who are or may be struggling in their marriage. Praise Be to God.
