Biblical Prayers for My Husband

1. That my husband loves me as he loves himself—resisting the natural temptation to be selfish—and that I respect him and the authority God has given him over me and our family (Ephesians 5:33).

2. That I submit to my husband in everything as to the Lord, and that what he asks of me is what Christ would want him to ask of me (Ephesians 5:22-24).

3. That my husband loves me as Christ loves the church:  in a sacrificial, purifying, and caring, protective manner (Ephesians 5:25-32).

4. That my husband not become harsh or embittered against me (Colossians 3:19)—and that I am careful not to tempt him to be so.

5. That I demonstrate purity, reverence, and a gentle and  quiet spirit in my life, not a fearful or negative attitude (1 Peter 3:1-6).

6. That my husband be a considerate and chivalrous partner with me in life, dwelling with me in such an understanding way that he gives no reason for his prayers to be hindered at all (1 Peter 3:7).

7. That my husband and I devote ourselves to satisfying one another physically, emotionally, socially, and mentally with great joy and enthusiasm (1 Corinthians 7:3-5; Proverbs 5:15-19).
