Prayer For Wives

Eternal One, I thank You for my husband and I pray that You keep him humble and noble. I know that a wife of a noble character is his crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones. Lord, help me to be a good wife so that I can uplift my husband. I pray that I support him daily so that he can flourish. I pray that You bless him and cover him in all that he does. I pray for Your light to follow him all the days of his life and I pray that Your right hand upholds him. Amen.

O God of Loving Devotion, Your Word says that a man must love his wife as he loves himself. I thank You for my wife and her care for me. I pray that You keep our bond and I pray against any thing that tries to separate it. I also must respect and love my wife, so give me the right attitude towards her. Give me the right mindset to appreciate and respect her when she fails and when she succeeds. I pray that we mutually respect and love one another. In Jesus' loving name. Amen.

Faithful Lord, thank You for my wife, I love her dearly. Help me to continue to love her. Your Word says that above all, we should love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins. I pray that God-like, indeed, Your agape love, is the center of our marriage and the guide of both of our hearts. Father, I pray that even if my wife makes mistakes, I will forgive her because of my love for her. Lord, help me to be more like You in my marriage. Amen.

Heavenly Father, thank You for my wife and all that she means to me. Thank You for bringing such a good woman into my life to be my helper and friend as well as my lover and comfort.

Thank You for her love for You Lord, and I pray that day by day our marriage may become stronger so that together we may grow in grace, and that our mutual love for each other and for You may blossom into the marriage partnership that You desire for each of Your children.

Bless our lives together, and unite us in a closer bond of unity with each other so that together we may stand shoulder to shoulder as we carry out the life-work that You have given to us, to the glory of Your name.

Forgive us those times when we have allowed the niggles of life and the foolishness of our sin natures to sour the special relationship we have with each other, knowing that the enemy seeks to instil disunity in Christian lives and marriages. Help us instead, to quietly and humbly apologise for our own short comings and change our thinking, so that we consider the needs of the other before our own.

Thank You for the precious blessing of my wife. In Jesus' name,


Heavenly Father, thank You for the wife that You have been gracious to give me and thank You for the wonderful institution of marriage where a man and a woman becomes one flesh.

Help me to cleave to my wife as You have instructed in Your Word, and may we grow ever closer to each other and to You as we daily spend time in fellowship with one and other and in You presence, together.

May she grow strong in the Lord and in the power Your might, and protect her mind and thoughts I pray, from the influences of the world. Help her to fix her heart and mind on the Lord Jesus and may she continue to place her full trust and hope in You.

Give her a gentle spirit and a tender heart and may she become more and more a woman where her inner beauty shines out as the example of one who loves and fears the Lord. And help me to be a good and loving husband, so that together we can witness to Your authority in our lives and marriage. In Jesus' name I pray,


How I thank You for the love my wife has for You Lord, and for the quiet strength she demonstrates in her prayerfulness. Thank You for the example she is to me and to others, of a woman who has placed Jesus at the rightful centre of her life, and home.

Lord, there was a time when I did not understand and was a little confused, irritated and even jealous of her prayer-life, but Lord, thank You for showing me the amazing gift that I have received from You in the person of my praying wife, and also for the amazing grace and gift of prayer that You have bestowed on her.

Lord, just as her prayers have so often sustained me as I have faced some of life's difficulties, I now lift up my precious wife to You in grateful praise asking that You would sustain her and encourage her in her prayer life. Be her rock and support, especially in those times when she may become weary of well-doing. Show me Lord, how I may be supportive toward her and thank You Father, for giving me my praying wife. In Jesus' name I pray,


Dear Lord, how I praise You for the gift of my wife. I pray Lord, that day by day she may become mature in the faith, a holy woman of prayer that is growing in grace and in her knowledge of Her Saviour, day by day

Give her the inner strength to carry out her duties both at home and with others, through the power of the Holy Spirit. May her whole body, soul and spirit be kept blameless at the coming of our Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Thank You for her deep love of the Lord Jesus, and keep her I pray, that she may be alert to the wiles of the evil one and remain in You. May she experience Your love for her and the peace and joy that comes from an intimate relationship with You. May the roots of her faith be secured on the Rock of her salvation as she abides in Christ.

Help my wife and I to be one in You and one with each other, to Your praise and glory. I ask this in the name of Jesus,


Thank You, Lord, for the gift of my dear wife. Lord, I know that a good and virtuous woman is worth more than rubies and precious stones. Help me to be the husband that You would have me be, to encourage her and love her as Christ loved the church, and to think of her needs and wishes before my own.

May I be a encouragement in her life and her covering of protection from the evils of this world. Help me to be sensitive to her needs, knowing that I have often not realised that some of my actions and attitudes have come across as uncaring.

Lord, teach me to be a good husband, a man that is prepared to lead and to listen, a man that is prepared to carry out my duties, both wisely and lovingly, for I desire to take on the role that You have ordained for me in our marriage, in a manner that is well-pleasing in Your sight. In Jesus' name I pray,
