The most important relationship among humankind, aside from our relationship with God, is between a husband and wife. Marriage was created by God to be fulfilling for us, and He gave it to us for the sake of companionship and happiness. It tells us in Proverbs 18:22 that he who finds a wife obtains favor from the Lord. As the Lord blessed you with a wonderful partner, you’d also want to be a loving husband to her. As you strive to be an amazing husband to her, one of the greatest acts of love you can demonstrate is by praying for your wife. In your morning devotion or quiet time, you can meditate and ask God to direct you to pray for your wife today.
Prayers for your wife are not only important but powerful. When we pray, God listens to us (Psalm 145:18), which is why it is the most potent weapon we have to fight against the enemy’s works in our marriage. We see a lot of marriage prayers to fight for and protect the sacred union of couples. There are also daily prayers for husbands because you, too, need solid spiritual support. Similarly, your wife also needs your prayers because she also needs the same level of spiritual support as you do. If you now feel the desire to be your wife’s prayer warrior, here are 15 prayers that can guide you and help you start:
