Your husband will appreciate this

Here’s why we think your husband will appreciate these… because they’re primarily about him and for him.

It’s so easy in the busyness of life to get caught up in what we need from our spouses, but today we’re focusing on being better spouses to our husbands.

Now, before you hit the back button, just hear me out.

By no means am I saying that your needs aren’t important, but one of the key principles of Biblical marriage is service.

As you do your part to serve your husband in prayer, trust God to meet your needs as well.


Challenge Yourself to Pray Daily

We’ll get to the prayers in a sec, but if you’re finding yourself in a place where you’re not praying for your marriage regularly (or maybe not spending time with God regularly), then this reminder’s for you.

I know life can get busy, and something’s have to take the back burner. But trust me, you don’t want your prayer life to be one of those things.

Prayer is one of the most powerful and impact things we can ever do.

It can make all the difference between you staying where you are and living the awesome life God has for you.

1 John 5:14 (ESV) says, “And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.” (View this scripture on BibleStudyTools.com)

And we know that a Godly marriage is His will.

So if you haven’t yet, schedule time to spend time with Him daily however you can.

What does your marriage need?

This prayer for husband and wife is awesome, but it’s also general.

So while this is a great place to start, I challenge you to get more specific based on the needs of your marriage.

One way to do this is to go before the Lord during your devotional time. Take some time to write out what’s really on your heart as it relates to your marriage. Use these Prayer + Testimony Cards to help.

Here are some scriptures on marriage that may be really helpful for you:

  • Ecclesiastes 4:9: “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone?”
  • Genesis 2:24: “Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.”
  • 1 Corinthians 13:4-5: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.”

Remember, God created marriage, and He wants your marriage to be successful. One of the ways to ensure that you have a strong, fruitful, and successful marriage is by making prayer a part of your daily life.
