31 Days of Praying Scripture over your Husband

Years ago when I was a teenager, a youth leader handed out this list to all the girls in the group, encouraging us to begin praying for our future husbands. I thought it was the coolest thing ever and hung the list up in my room and began praying for my future husband. Years later, God blessed me with an amazing man who loves the Lord and strives to be like Christ. But, although God answered my prayers for a godly man, I need to continue praying for my husband and my marriage. The devil hates a Christ-centered marriage and he will throw all kinds of things at us to try to weaken our vows made before God.


Ok, being honest here today…I must admit, praying daily is a struggle for me. It really is something that takes a lot of discipline. I have found it so helpful to have a list of things to pray about. And that’s why I want to share my prayer list for my husband with you. I hope it will be a help and encouragement to you to begin praying for you husband and marriage.
