Romantic Couple Exchanging Christmas Gifts At Home

A Gift and a Challenge.

The greatest gift we can give to our husbands is prayer! And not just at Christmas, but every day. Maybe God is nudging you to start praying for your husband but your hesitating or even resisting because you’re not sure where to begin.

Below is a great place to start. I have put together a few verses in prayer format for you to pray over your husband. You can even pray these over yourself! I’ve included a bonus prayer printable you can print and put in your Bible for easy access. But before we get started, here are two challenges for you:

1. Consider keeping a journal of your prayer time. Journaling will help you “see” the growth in your husband as you pray for him.

2. Find an accountability partner (another wife) and invite her to pray with you. Having someone to pray with will encourage you both to continue to pray for your husband. This also cultivates a place where both can grow in the process. Consider someone from your church family or a neighbor that you don’t know as well. Invite her to meet for coffee and share this challenge with her. Maybe she has been praying for someone to pray with as well.

The following are 10 prayers covering your husband from his head to his feet.
