Scripture Prayers for Husband

His mind – Lord, I pray that my husband will have complete understanding and will know Christ, who holds all wisdom and knowledge (Colossians. 2:2-3).  I pray that he will take every thought captive and make it obedient to Christ (2 Corinthians. 10:5).  Help him fix his thoughts on eternal and not earthly things (Colossians. 3:2) and on that which is true, good, right, lovely, and praiseworthy (Philippians. 4:8).  I pray that he will be transformed by the renewing of his mind (Romans 12:2).

His eyes – I pray that his eyes will turn away from worthless things (Psalms. 119:37) and be able to see wonderful things in Your word (Psalms. 119:18).  Cause him to fix his eyes on the eternal instead of the temporary (2 Corinthians. 4:18).  Help him be alert to watch for the snares of the enemy (1 Peter. 5:8).

His ears – Give him the faith that comes by hearing Your word (Rom. 10:17).  I pray that he will hear Your voice (Revelation. 3:20), listen (Is. 50:5), and obey (James 1:22,25).

His mouth – Lord, set a guard over his mouth and keep watch over the door of his lips (Psalms. 141:3).  Help him to speak Your word with boldness (Acts 4:29) and give him Your words so he will speak the gospel without fear (Ephesians. 6:19).  Let the words of his mouth and the meditation of his heart be acceptable to You (Psalms. 19:14).  Cause him to abstain from dirty talk and jokes (Ephesians. 5:4), but instead let his words be full of grace (Colossians. 4:6), being prepared to give the reason for the hope he has (1 Pet. 3:15).

His heart – Father, help my husband love You with all his heart, soul, and strength (Deut. 6:5).  Guard his heart, for it is the wellspring of life (Proverbs. 4:23).  Thank you for giving him a new heart and spirit and for taking his heart of stone and giving him a heart of flesh (Ezekiel. 36:26-27).  Create in him a clean heart (Psalms. 51:10).  Help him to trust You with all his heart and not lean on his own understanding (Proverbs. 3:5).  I pray that the peace of Christ would rule in his heart (Colossians. 3:15).

His arms – Help him not to trust in his own strength, but to know that Your strength is made perfect in his weakness (2 Corinthians. 12:9).  

His hands – May he lift up holy hands in prayer to You, Lord, without anger or disputing (1 Timothy. 2:8).  I pray he will reach his hands out to the poor and needy as if he was doing it for You (Matthew. 25:3-36).

His legs – Help him to walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians. 5:7).  I pray he will stand firm with Your armor on (Ephesians. 6:13).  May he run with perseverance the race set before him (Hebrews. 12:1).

His feet – Thank you, Lord, for setting his feet upon a rock, a firm place to stand (Psalms. 40:2).  Keep his feet from slipping (Psalms. 66:9) and may they be ready with the gospel of peace (Ephesians. 6:15).
