Praying God’s Word for Your Husband

We’re over a month into the new year and I’m curious…

Have you established any new good habits so far this year?

Research has shown that it takes about 21 days to establish a new habit, so assuming you’ve been working on something since around the first of January, you could have a new habit all set in stone by now!

I’m really excited about mine because it’s something I’ve wavered on back and forth for almost ten years now. I’ve prayed about being more consistent, but I haven’t really felt a long-standing success until now!

What is it?

Praying for my husband!

The Dreamy Hubby

Ahhh…isn’t he dreamy?! {Just give me a second…}

Ok, actually, it’s praying for him and the boys every morning. During my quiet time, I do my Bible study in my journal, and then I follow up that page with a handwritten page of prayers for all of my guys. I don’t know why this is clicking for me now, but it is one of my favorite parts of the day now!

I’ve had a renewed passion for praying for The Hubby specifically lately and a great resource has come my way from one of my favorite authors to fuel that passion even more!

Kathi Lipp, author of The Husband Project and The “What’s for Dinner?” Solution, has just released Praying God’s Word for Your Husband and I almost did cartwheels when it showed up at my door!

I’ve been praying God’s Word for our boys through Brooke’s Warrior Prayers book for a while now and was looking for something like it to pray through for my husband! This book is the answer!

Here’s why I really love it: Kathi encourages wives to pray BOLDLY from God’s Word for our husbands in a wide range of areas, but she also keeps the book fun and conversational in her signature style I have come to love! You’re going to read this book and feel encouraged and inspired!

I feel like I need to make this point today: The reason I feel passionate about praying for my husband is NOT because something is wrong with him. I mean, we’re all sinners, yes, but I’m not praying for The Hubby because he is a bad husband or going down the wrong path or anything! He is a FABULOUS husband and I can’t believe I’m so blessed to have been married to him for ten years this May!

Prayer is for the good times and the bad – can I get an amen on that? It’s just as important to pray protection and safety and blessing over our husbands during times of blessing as it is during times of suffering and hardship.

Kathi covers the good and the bad in Praying God’s Word for Your Husband: praying for his dreams and health, as well as praying for him when he is overcome with worry and feeling inadequate. Any wife will be blessed by the prayers Kathi offers up in this book!

Here is a favorite prayer of mine Kathi has written out in the book based on Deuteronomy 7:6….

Thank you, God, that my husband is set apart and made holy by you. Help me to look at him as you do. Help him to feel how special and treasured he is. As he goes about his day, I pray that you would shine your love into his life.

I know it’s not anything material you can physically give to your husband, but I can think of no greater Valentine’s gift for your husband this year…

  1. I, too, have felt more of an…urgency to pray for my husband lately. I’m using Stormie O’Martian’s The Power of a Praying Wife….this book that you reviewed looks like one that I need to get my hands on, too!

    Thanks for sharing. :)

  2. Here’s a Word to pray for your husband/mine: “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies. Pray for those who treat you badly. If you do this, you will be children who are truly like your Father in heaven. He lets the sun rise for all people, whether they are good or bad. He sends rain to those who do right and to those who do wrong. Matthew 5:43-45 ERV
    Our husbands, in going to work, often face enemies…Praying for them to show God’s love to all is what is on my heart for him and for me today.

    p.s. I want to read that book! Thanks for the recommendation. Also, have read Stormie’s book…it was good too. The one here sounds like it may be a more modern spin to it?!

  3. Since being married I’ve prayed through Stormie Omartian’s book a few times and it’s helped me understand better how to pray more specifically for my husband. It sounds like this might be even more directly based on Scripture which would be a really neat way to begin to pray as well. Thanks for sharing it with us!

  4. Hi Erin – please forgive me that this is the first time I’m stopping by – my hubby had surgery last week and I’m behind on life. What a wonderful post and great insight. You are a treasure my friend!

    Glad you came by, Kathi! No worries at all! And I hope your husband is doing well!

    So thankful for your book {and all the ones before it as well}! My hubby was sick this weekend and I prayed out of your book for him. Just the words I needed!
