How Should You Pray for Your Future Husband?
To be honest, I haven’t always prayed for my future husband, but in the last few weeks I have begun praying for him more often -almost daily. I now have a list in my prayer closet that I use to pray for my future husband.
This month, I am following 31 prayer prompts for my prayer time and today’s prompt is to pray for your future husband. Because of this, I decided to share the 11 things I like to pray for my future husband. This list will help you get a better idea of how to pray for your future husband as well… and I have a free printable for you at the end! Without further ado, here is my list:
11 Things I Pray for My Future Husband
1) Grace and help for personal struggles
I have no idea what personal struggles my future husband may be facing, or what kind of things he is dealing with today. So my prayer is that God will give him grace and help. We all need those two things each day!
God has promised to give wisdom to those who ask for it (James 1:5). We all need wisdom as we go through our days and my future husband is no exception. My prayer is that God will give him wisdom for today and tomorrow, and wisdom in all his decision making.
3) His Prayer Life
Prayer is the most powerful tool God has given us in our christian life. A strong prayer life is crucial in the life of my future husband. My prayer is that God will strengthen his prayer life, increase his diligence in prayer, and increase his faith as a result.
4) His Character
It’s hard to cultivate and maintain strong character traits. I want my husband to have strong character and integrity. I do not know his strengths and weaknesses and that is why I want to pray for his character.
5) His Walk with God
This one should probably be at the top, but when I created this prayer list, I did not put things in order of importance, I simply wrote them down! However, my future husband’s walk with God is the key to keeping his life on track. It’s the key to his joy, his contentment, and his strength. A close and intimate relationship with God will help him in every area of his life!
6) His Goals
I don’t know what all of my future husband’s goals are, but I am sure he has some! I hope his goals and desires are in-line with God’s will and purpose for his life. I want to pray for my future husband’s goals and ambitions because a man without vision and purpose won’t accomplish the things God created him to do.
7) His Purity
We live in a sinful, dirty world that attacks moral purity from every corner. It’s nearly impossible to go anywhere in the world without our eyes, ears, and minds, being assaulted with impurity. Moral purity is a struggle for men and women but I especially need and want to pray for my future husband’s purity. In every sense of the word, I need to pray that my future husband is remaining pure in his heart, mind, and actions.
8) His Emotions
Girls aren’t the only ones with emotions. Guys have them too! I want my future husband to experience joy, not discouragement. I want him to show love and patience instead of anger. I need to pray that he is yielding his emotions to God and following truth, not feelings.
9) His Relationships with Family, Friends, and Coworkers
It’s impossible to go through life without interacting with others. In many ways, men have to interact with people even more than woman do. At work he may have to interact with unsaved people. His friends may have a positive or negative effect on his spiritual life and walk with God. His family may be unsaved, or he may struggle with his relationships with parents or siblings. I need to pray for him in his interactions and relationships with other people.
10) His Finances
Whether he needs money, or needs wisdom in managing finances, I should be praying for my future husband in this area. Men are to be the providers of the home, therefore my future husband needs to learn how to wisely manage his money (and other resources – like his time!).
This last one is very similar to wisdom. However, I hope my future husband is cultivating discretion. Discretion with his words, discretion in his actions, and discretion in the decisions and choices he makes on a daily basis.
There You Have It
Those are the 11 things I like to pray for my future husband. There are probably many more I could (and should) add to this list but these are just the 11 things I stick to.
Even if there is no eligible young man in sight, I hope you will talk to God about your future husband. I know some young women have decided not to pray for their future husband until God reveals who he is… Whatever you decide, I hope you pray about your future, whether it’s about a someday husband or not 🙂
