Prayer is powerful. Personally, saying a prayer for my wife is a simple way to build spiritual intimacy and support her in our relationship. 


In the rush of daily life, it’s easy to forget how important all of The 6 Pillars of Intimacy® are in keeping you feeling close and connected to your spouse. 

You can get caught up in thinking that only the big things matter: extravagant dates, long conversations, passionate sex. 

In reality, small habits build the strongest foundation of intimacy in your marriage. 

One such habit is praying for your spouse. 

While praying with your spouse is something that brings you both closer together, you can also strengthen your marriage by praying for your spouse. 

Maybe praying together isn’t easy right now, or your spouse may not be interested. But praying for your wife, even by yourself, is a practical way to be intentional and take action. 

So, if you’ve ever wanted to say a prayer for your wife but didn’t know where to start, you’re in luck. 

Husbands, here are 10 prayers to pray over your wife:
