Prayer To Protect My Husband’s Job

Prayer for my husband to find a job

Prayer To Protect My Husband’s Job

My answer to this was always, “Of course!”

I did pray for my husband, but not on a regular basis.

It was usually when he had something going on or asked for prayer.

I was rarely proactive in covering him in prayer.

However the further I got in my walk with God, the more I understood how powerful and important prayer was concerning my husband. After years of trying to change him and trying to be his “Holy Spirit Jr.”, I realized that prayer was the key–not my advice or complaints.

As much as I love praying for my husband, I don’t always remember to do it.

I can get sidetracked with the thousands of other responsibilities life throws at me.

In order to place it in the forefront of my mind, I put it on my calendar. Before you go thinking this is weird and impersonal….he knows I do this and actually appreciates it. I have an alert on my phone that goes off each morning at 7am that says “Pray for Hubby and Kids”.

It has been the best thing I’ve done for my marriage. Seriously, you need to try it

Not only do I put it in my calendar, but I have a few set topics and prayers handy that help guide my prayers.

I don’t want to pray just for the sake of praying, I want to see real change and power made available to him.

When I’m praying, I’m believing!

It’s warfare time and I’m there to defend, protect and claim–not in my power, but in the name of Jesus!

Declaring the scriptures over him will actually help him to become the man God’s called him to be.

When you first begin saying these things you may think, I’m saying this but none of it’s true.

Don’t let that stop you!

Your words have power. The more you speak them, the more you will see them come to pass.

Tell other people these things about him. It honors him and he will feel supported and loved by you.

Here are a few of the prayers and declarations that I’m praying for my husband

**As a side note: Just because I pray for him in these areas does not mean he is not doing well in them. I pray over the areas he is proficient in as well. Why? Because I want him to continue to do well in them. There is no area that the enemy won’t try to come in. I want to make sure I’m on the offense, not just the defense!

Work Life

My husband works with all his heart as unto the Lord. He glorifies God with his talents. ( Colossians 3:23)

The favor of God rests on my husband. God establishes the work of his hands and provides the business he needs. ( Psalm 90:17)

Father, thank you for my husband’s job. Lord, help him to see it as a gift from You. Father, I pray that you continue to bless him in this area. Give him insight into his field. Continue to show him creative ways to make money and expand his presence in his industry.

Lord, help him to see his job as a blessing, even in the times where it’s rough. Guard his heart and mind from discouragement when things don’t go the way he anticipates. Let him work with all his heart to bring You glory. I pray Your favor would cover him and that he would prosper in his work.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Home Life

My husband leads me with gentleness and walks in understanding with me. ( 1 Peter 3:7)

My husband is an encouraging father. He leads our children in the way of the Lord. ( Ephesians 6:4)

Lord, protect my husbands time at home. Father, help him to govern our house in wisdom and fear of You. Teach him Your ways, that He may be an example to our children. Give him insight into how to raise our family.

Help him to balance his time between work and home life. Help him to understand how to love me better as his wife and help me learn to be respectful. Teach him to be gentle and kind with our family, while teaching us to be submissive.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Relationships

The wise will surround my husband and he will become wiser. ( Proverbs 13:20)

My husband speaks what is edifying to those around him. He builds others up and uses his words to glorify God. ( Ephesians 4:29)

My husband is an example to others in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. ( 1 Timothy 4:12)

Father thank you for my husband’s godly relationships. Lord continue to surround him with men that reflect Your heart. Help him to be slow to speak and quick to listen with his friends.

 Guard his mouth from speaking anything other than what edifies the hearer and glorifies You. Give him divine connections throughout his day. Let him be a beacon of light to those around him.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Physical Health

My husband will be in good health and prosper, even as his soul prospers. ( 3 John 1:2)

My husband is disciplined in his eating and exercising habits. He maintains control over all cravings. ( 1 Corinthians 9:27)

Lord I thank you for my husband’s health. Father I pray that you would preserve him. Help him to make good food choices each day. Let him crave those things that are good for him.

Protect each cell in his body, that nothing harmful can prosper against him. Give him energy at the end of the day to work out. Show him a plan for working out.

Send others to encourage him and even a buddy to work out with that will keep him accountable. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Spiritual Growth

My husband grows in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ daily. ( 2 Peter 3:18)

The faith my husband has will move mountains and nothing will be impossible for him! ( Matthew 17:20)

God I thank you that my husband is growing in wisdom, stature and favor with You and man. Continue to expand his knowledge of You, Lord. I thank you for the men you have placed in his life to help him along the way. Lord, continue to increase his faith as he reads Your Word. Preserve his time with you, Lord. Speak to him throughout the day and guide his decisions. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

How do you pray for your husband? Do you have a routine or a specific method for praying for him? I’d love for you to share it! We can help each other grow in our efforts to pray for our spouses. The more we pray, declare and seek God on behalf of our men, the more we will see them grow in the image of God.

Dear Father,

I lift up my husband and his job up to you. I ask that you be with him while he is at work, and bless his efforts. Give him strength, patience, and wisdom in the situations he faces and the tasks he completes. I pray he feels Your nearness and your peace each day.

When he feels stress or is overwhelmed with anxiousness, I pray You calm him and give him peace. When he feels the pressure is too much, let him lean into You and find rest. I know you love him and have good things in mind for him. In spite of the difficulties he faces each day, You are there.

Thank you for the blessing of a job. Thank you for his willingness to serve You and provide for his family. Help us to be good stewards of the many blessings in our lives. Guide my husband in all decisions, and develop his skills as he continues to work hard.

When he encounters failure, help him to see your grace. When he makes mistakes, draw him close with your kindness and forgiveness. He has so much to offer and has many talents, but I pray it would all be done for your Glory.

Help us to look for ways to bless others with our time and resources.

I ask that you protect him from harm. Surround him, lift him up, and keep his eyes on you each day. Help him to excel and enjoy the success that comes from hard work, without overdoing things.

Help him to balance his time between work, spending time with his family, and most of all seeking You.

Bless the relationships he forms at his workplace, including co workers, friends, and those he interacts with regularly.

I pray his boss will appreciate his efforts. Help my husband to persevere with joy, knowing that it’s all for You. When he is tired, frustrated, and wants to give up, remind him of Your great love for him. Let my husband recall your promise to never leave him. I pray he feels your presence each day.

In your name I pray,
Amen

Nice to “meet” you! I’m Michelle, a wife of twenty-three years, a mother to five, a homeschool mom, and a classical education tutor. I want to use this space to share with you the good, the bad, and the ugly that is my life. Maybe it will encourage you. Maybe it will inspire you. Maybe it will simply amuse you. Whichever it is, I am thankful you are taking time to be here.

Prayer for Husband Head to Toe

Prayer To Protect My Husband’s Job

There is most nothing you can do as important as uniting with God and praying for your husband. We can do many things that can help our spouse. But God can do amazing things for him, beyond our “good” things —no doubt! Your prayer for your husband can bring about many amazing things because God answers prayer.

A number of years ago I was talking with a friend at a Bible study. She told me something she did that changed her whole marriage for the better. God impressed upon her to simply start praying for her husband regularly.

She told me she didn’t know why it hadn’t occurred to her to do this every day before then. But when she started praying so many things changed. It especially changed her attitude towards her husband.

She fell more in love with him and with God.

Praying Together

Eventually, she and her husband began praying together every morning. That really changed their marriage in impactful ways. As she said, they had a pretty good marriage before praying together.

But their relationship went from okay/good to great. So of course, they never stopped praying. And neither have we. Steve and I started the same great “habit” from that day forward.

It’s now a part of our morning to pray together to start the day off right.

I also pray for Steve separately, and he prays for me. But we also pray together each morning. I can’t emphasize how much closer we are to each other and to God, as a result.

Praying for My Husband

God all the more showed me the importance of praying for Steve several years back. I was angry at him for leaving his clothes hangers out after he changed clothes and left for the morning. (I wrote a blog about it in an article titled, Praying Over Hangers.

) God impressed upon me to stop being mad at him. I was to instead be thankful that I have him. (I have a lot of friends who are widowed. They would love to pick up their husband’s hangers.) God told me I was to pray for the man who was now wearing those clothes that those hangers held.

I was to pray for this man who faithfully went to work every morning.

So I did. And it changed my angry heart to one that was thankful to God for giving me Steve. I was also thankful to Steve for being such a hard worker, and a good man.

Yes, he left his hangers out sometimes. But yes, it also gave me reminders to pray for him. I should have been praying more for Steve than I was. He’s not a lazy man. He was just a forgetful one at times.

I sure have my forgetful times too.

Praying with an Outline

Over the years I’ve prayed for Steve with and without prayer aids. I feel when I use an outline, I’m able to better give my husband prayer coverage, as his marriage partner.

Recently, I came up with the following prayer outline ( scripture). I’m passing it to you. You can use it as a launching point, to pray for your own husband, from head to toe. This includes his heart, mind, and body. You can use it verbatim, or adapt it. Or you can use it to start praying in a certain direction —and then praying as the Holy Spirit leads.

Please use it and see what you think (just fill in the blanks with your husband’s name).

[NOTE: It is not imperative that you cover every area of his body at one time. What IS important is that you pray for at least one of these areas for him every day. Let the Spirit guide you.]

War Room Prayers to Pray Over Your Marriage

Prayer To Protect My Husband’s Job

[Affiliate links may be used in this post.]

Taking My Marriage to the War Room:

One thing I have learned after 13 years of marriage is that prayer is NOT the last resort–it is the first line of defense against any attack. This is especially true in regards to marriage.

The enemy will find any crack in your marriage in order to weasel his way into your relationship. He is slimy and full of darkness.

But our most powerful weapon against that little jerk is always prayer.

It seems every day, I am receiving prayer requests from friends and readers of this blog–about their marriage troubles. It’s scary, guys–I’m talking about marriages that I never thought would waver.

I have written these prayers in an effort to combat the enemy in my own marriage and build up my husband so that he is fully protected. I encourage every wife or future wife to pray these same prayers!

Pray for His Spiritual Relationship with Christ:

“Father, I am so thankful that my husband carries you in his heart and that he is fully aware of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Please continue to guard his heart and everything that flows from it (Prov. 4:23). I humbly ask that you help him to grow in the grace and knowledge of your love and sacrifice (2 Peter 3:18) and that he gives YOU the glory forever. Amen.”

Pray that He Will be the Spiritual Leader in Your Home:

“Oh Lord, thank you for raising my husband up to be a servant of Christ. I pray that you will instill in him, a leader’s heart. Help him to know that just as Christ has authority over every man; he too has authority over our home (1 Cor.

11:3).  Help him to treat every member of our family with love and respect and to honor God with his gentle spirit (1 Peter 3:7). Father, I ask for blessings upon blessings for my husband as he honors you by leading our household. In Your name, Amen.

Pray that He Has a Heart for His Children:

“God, thanks for blessing me by making my husband the father of our Children. I ask that you continue to speak through his lips and pour out Life on our kids.

Please Father, help him to have the gift of patience and to not provoke the children to anger by nagging or scolding—that he may bring them up with loving discipline that is approved by God. I humbly ask that you place Godly advice and suggestions on the tip of his tongue at all times (Eph. 6:4).

) Our inheritance in great when we serve the Lord (Col.3:24). Father, help my husband to pass that on to our children by being a good example. Amen.”

Pray for His Physical & Mental Health:

“Oh Lord—thank you for protecting my husband from sickness. I pray that you will continue to protect him from any harm—both physical and mental. Help him to treat his body and mind as the home of the Holy Spirit and to fully surrender it back to the Lord as a living sacrifice (1 Cor. 6:19).

Father, I know it is not easy, but please give him a supernatural strength to overcome any obstacles that stand in his way. Father, guard his mind—that he not be conformed by this world, but rather he is transformed by the renewal of his mind. I ask that what pleases the Father will also please my husband (Rom. 12:2).

I pray all of this in your Son’s precious name, Amen.”

Pray that He has Success at Work:

“Lord, you have blessed me with a husband who works hard for our family—thank you for that! Your Word says that we do not labor in vain if we are steadfast, immovable, and always abounding in the work of the Lord (1 Cor. 15:58).

Please continue to nurture and grow those qualities in my husband. Father, you did not give us a spirit that makes us timid, but one that gives us power, love, and self-discipline (2 Tim 1:7).

I pray that my husband will become a leader at his job and be a man of integrity and influence—and that he will give all the glory to God. Amen.”

Pray that He Can Resist Temptation:

“Father God, I pray a hedge of protection around the heart, eyes, and ears of my husband—that anything meant for foolishness, lust, or crude humor be stamped out and ignored—in Your name, Father! (Eph.

3:5) I ask that my husband’s desire only be for me, his wife (Songs 7:10). Your Word says that the mind governed by the flesh is death but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace (Rom. 8:6).

Father, thank you in advance for your faithfulness to my husband and to my marriage to him. In your name, Amen.”

Pray for His Friends & Mentors:

“Dear God, thank you for raising up trusted men who are able to mentor and teach my husband YOUR truths (2 Tim. 2:2). I humbly ask that you help my husband to seek out those who are seeking out YOU. Bring Godly men around him and remove any negative influences.

Father, I also ask that give my husband a merciful spirit so that he may be an example to those with unbelief. Make him a willing and hardworking disciple; who by his actions—will bring others to Christ. Your Word says that iron sharpens iron just as one man sharpens another. Thank you for that truth.

 And all the glory will be to God—Amen.”

Pray for Your Husband’s Relationship with You:

“Oh God—thank you for the precious soul of my husband and thank you for the relationship that you have blessed so deeply. Help us to remain one flesh (Gen. 2:24) and allow our marriage to bring glory to YOU.

Above all, help us to love each other deeply because love covers a multitude of sins (1 Pet. 4:8). May we be devoted to one another in love and honor each other above ourselves (Rom. 12:10).

Thank you in advance for your faithfulness to our marriage. In Jesus name, Amen.”
