Praying for Your Husband

How to Pray for Your Husband

-----That he might become a holy man, a man of prayer, mature in the Lord, growing in his knowledge of God. (I Thes. 5:23, Col. 4:12, Eph. 6:18, Eph. 1:18-19, Eph. 3:16-19).
----That he might daily seek God with all his heart, walking in the Spirit moment by moment, growing in his dependence on Him (Ps. 119:1-2, Ps. 27:4, Prov. 3:5-6), John 15:5).

-----That he might learn to take every thought captive, to not be conformed to the world's thinking and to think scripturally (Rom. 12:2, 2 Cor. 10:5).
-----That he would learn to not depend on his circumstances for happiness but on God alone (Hab. 3:17-19).

-----That he might have new strength in the midst of his busy schedule and that the Lord might infuse him with His strength (Is. 40:31, Eph. 3:14-19).
-----That his self-image might be a reflection of the Lord's thoughts toward him (Eph. 1:17-19, Rom. 12:3, Ps. 139).

-----That he might become a called man, not driven, with well thought-through and prayed-through goals in life (I Cor. 9:24-27).
-----That the Lord might give him wisdom to lead his family physically, emotionally, mentally, and
spiritually (Eph. 1:17-19, Js. 1:5-7).

-----That he might stand firm against the schemes of the devil and resist Satan in all circumstances. (Eph. 6:10-18, Js. 4:7)
----That he might not be deceived into unbelief or sin (Gal. 6:7)

-----That the fruit of the Spirit might be exhibited more and more in his life (Gal. 5:22-23).
-----That he might learn to love as God has commanded (I Cor. 13:4-7, Rom. 12:8-10).

-----That the Lord might protect him, guarding his course (Prov. 2:8)
-----That he might learn to manage his time well (Eph. 5:15)
