- How do I pray for my future husband?
Praying for your future husband shouldn’t be handled trivially.
Don’t be one of those people who would say, ‘when I get to that bridge I’ll cross it.’ Really!
Rather, you should start making adequate preparations through prayers and the study of the Word of God before heading to the bridge.
You’re never too early nor are you too young to pray about your future husband, because this is the best time to start.
Choosing a life partner is not an emotional decision. It is a decision for purpose and destiny.
The first help you will need is from the one who created the marriage institution(a.k.a God Almighty).
Through the help of His Holy Spirit, He reveals deep and secret underlying issues that should be dealt with before meeting your husband.
These issues could be rejection issues, daddy issues, low self-esteem, and unforgiveness.
You need to learn how to be a wholesome person before letting someone else into your life. I highly recommend the book Wholeness by Pastor Toure Roberts
The Holy Spirit also prepares you for the role by building your character and capacity to handle what’s coming.
As you know, your future husband is going to be the ‘head’ of the family.
He will be making major decisions that will affect the whole family including ‘You‘.
Therefore, you don’t want someone leading you to destruction. If you’re familiar with the story of Daniel,
The princes who gang up against Daniel to be thrown into the lion’s den didn’t know that
Their misconduct would cause their wives and kids to be eaten in the lion’s den.
These wives weren’t a part of their plans according to the Bible, but they suffered the consequences.
Now, you see why you have to pray for your future husband who is going to be your ‘head‘.
Should I pray for my future husband?
Yes, you should pray for your future husband because a bad spouse equals destruction.
The devil 👹 fights against good marriages and his utmost desire is to derail you from destiny.
He would also want you to purposefully end up with the wrong husband.
Your prayer grants God access to direct your path and guide you against any mishap when the time comes.
“Commit your work to the LORD, and your plans will be established.”
Don’t think being a baby mama is the way out. You’re only leaving the use-and-dump legacy of your generation.
How do I pray for my future husband?
When praying for your future husband, you need to first have a relationship with God because that’s the most important relationship of all.
How to Build A Relationship with God
You can read the following scripture when praying for your future husband.
This will help you to pray specific prayers when praying for your future husband.
1. Pray about the salvation of his soul
Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.”
He needs to be born-again to have the nature of Christ before he can become a good husband.
Your prayer to God has to be for the salvation of his soul first.
If your future partner doesn’t understand the love of God, and the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross, how can he love you?
2. Pray for Wisdom
“For through wisdom your days will be many, and years will be added to your life. If you are wise, your wisdom will reward you; if you are a mocker, you alone will suffer.”
The second prayer would be for God to give him a teachable spirit. A man who is submitted to the principles of the word of God without compromise.
Pray for him to be led by the Holy Spirit when making any decisions.
He will not be misled by negative influences but solely relies on the Holy Spirit. You also need to pray for the power of agreeing on anything
So that when you both pray about anything it will come to pass.
3. Pray against pride
“God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”
Pray that your future husband has the fruit of meekness. That he would be humble enough to ask for your help.
Pray that he becomes the man of God who is not ashamed of being vulnerable before God and you.
4. Pray for his role as a father and prayer life:
“I chose him, and he will instruct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice, so that the Lord may bring to Abraham what He promised him.”
God knew Abraham will lead his household in the ordinances of God because he walked closely with God.
Your prayer for him is to become a man of integrity. For he will not compromise in the face of temptation.
That he will be a man of prayer and the word of God, constantly interceding for his family as the priest of his home.
He will also live an exemplary life that will be replicated in the lives of your children.
5. Pray against sexual temptation
“I made a covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully at a young woman.” Job 31:1 NIV
Pray for his self-control that he won’t lust after other women and anything that displeases God.
Just like Job, he will make a covenant with his eyes not to walk into sin but honor the marital covenant.
6. Pray for financial stability and open doors
God can bless you with everything you need, and you will always have more than enough to do all kinds of good things for others.2 Corinthians 9:8 CEV
Pray that God will bless the work of his hands. He won’t struggle to feed the family.
He will be promoted in all his endeavors and he will find favor before God and man.
7. Pray for his mental health
“Beloved, I pray that in every way you may succeed and prosper and be in good health [physically], just as [I know] your soul prospers [spiritually].”
Pray that God grants him a sound mind and good health. That he will also depend on God as the healer.
Ask God to satisfy him with long life and show him His salvation.
8. Pray for his mentors
“He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.”
Pray that his mentors will be men who are submitted to God and live by the Word of God.
They will be able to guide and give your future husband godly counsel.
He will also be submitted to leadership and he will listen.
9. Pray for his family
‘I will go before you And make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze And cut the bars of iron.Isaiah 45:2 Nkjv
You are moving into a territory that you really don’t know so much about them.
Therefore you need God to prepare their heart before you meet each other’s, family members.
Praying for your future husband is not a waste of time. Prayer is a seed and you water it with the Word of God, while the Holy Spirit brings the manifestation. Keep praying!
