Wives, it’s time to ask yourself this question: When was the last time I said a prayer for my husband? 


As a wife, you have a crucial responsibility to cover your husband in prayer. If you’re not praying for your husband, who is?

You love him deeply, and you probably know the intimate details of what is going on in his life. 

Who else would be better at praying for him? 

Saying a prayer for your husband isn’t just for his protection. It can be a powerful way to bridge the distance when the two of you are disconnected. 

Prayer requires you to humble yourself before God, who created both you and your husband. It’s a time when you can hear from your Heavenly Father. Not only can He guide you on how to respond to your husband, but He can also highlight areas where you can grow as a wife. 

Of course, it can be difficult to know where to begin.

Check out the list below of 10 short prayers to say for your husband.
