A Prayer for your Spouse

Father, fill (spouse’s name) with love for You, that he/she would ‘love You with all his/her heart and with all his/her soul’ and ‘with all his/her mind.’

The struggle is real in marriage; however, so is the power of our Lord! I believe one of the secrets to a healthy marriage is a healthy prayer life.

Here is a prayer written for any marriage at any stage. I give it to you and hope this will be helpful as you seek to have the best possible relationship with your man. If you’re like me, and need to be reminded to pray for your spouse, pause today and let us pray together.

Yes, my friends, the struggle is real, but so is our God.


Father, fill (spouse’s name) with love for You, that he/she would ‘love You with all his/her heart and with all his/her soul’ and ‘with all his/her mind.’

Jesus replied, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” Matthew 22:37 (NIV)

Cause him/her to delight in Your Word.

“But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night,” Psalm 1:2 (ESV)

Give (spouse’s name) Your perfect understanding.

“Give me understanding that I may learn your commandments.” Psalm 119:73 (ESV)

Allow (spouse’s name) to lean hard into You during trials for Psalm 46:1 (ESV) reads ‘God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.’

Empower him/her to run every day with endurance.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2 (ESV)

Equip (spouse’s name) with strength and wisdom so he/she would remain strong and courageous and that he/she may be successful wherever he/she goes.

“Be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the law that Moses my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may have good success[wherever you go. Joshua 1:7 (ESV)

Enable him/her to be ‘quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger.

Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; James 1:19 (ESV)

Father, I pray that you keep him/her sexually pure in mind, soul and body.

“I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes.” Psalm 101:3 (KJV)

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things. Matthew 5:8 (NIV)

Give him/her friendships with godly individuals that would encourage (spouse’s name) and hold him/her accountable.

“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:24-25 (ESV)

Let Your favor rest upon him/her, and establish the work of his/her hands.

Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands! Psalm 90:17 (ESV)

We continue to believe for ‘He who began a good work in my (spouse’s name) will complete it.’

And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6 (ESV)

In Christ Name I pray Amen.
