Covid, unemployment, social distancing, homeschooling, sanitizer- these words have robbed families of all their joy, especially husbands.
During hard times, husbands feel helpless to provide for and protect their families.
‘100 Powerful Prayers for My Husband’ listed in this article are daily prayers and blessings you can speak over your husbands to encourage them.
Speak these prayers out loud day and night. Do not pray your will; pray God’s will (His Word). God does not answer personal prayers. He answers ‘His’ word. So, pray ‘His words’ back to him and watch things change.
As you read a ‘prayer for my marriage’ below, select a few from each section, string them together, and make a beautiful morning prayer. So, with that, let’s give our husbands the ol’ Monday blessing!
