How to Pray for Your Husband While You're Still Single


I am sure you have seen on Pinterest. the pins about "7 Verses to Pray Over Your Husband" or "How to Pray for Your Husband." If you are single, you probably a) threw up in your mouth a little and kept on scrolling or b) pinned it onto your secret wedding board {:you know you have one:}, you know, for one day.

We may be single, but now is the perfect time to start praying for your husband. No, I don't mean just simply praying that he will finally show up. I mean praying for "the one" specifically. You may not know who you are praying for yet, but God does.


1) Pray for his relationship with Christ.
     When you are choosing a husband you are choosing a spiritual leader, not only for you but for your
     future, or current, children as well. His relationship with Christ is foundational in your marriage and
     family. Pray that he would keep his eyes focused on Jesus. Pray that he would have a heart to serve
     God, read His word, and mold his life around God's will.

2) Pray for favor and blessing over his life.
     We want our husbands to be blessed, not just after we meet them {:of corse they will be blessed then, they        will have met you:}, but in their current season as well. Pray that favor and blessings follow him all
     the days of his life. One day, these prayers will bless you too.

3) Pray for wisdom.
     Wisdom is a precious gift. Pray that God gives your husband the gift of wisdom and the strength to         act on that wisdom. Pray that your future husband would use wisdom in his decisions daily, both           big and small.

4) Pray for his success.
     Pray that doors of opportunity would open for him and that he would not only be successful in his          career, but in your family, as a husband and father, and in serving Christ as well. His success will
     one day be your success too.

5) Pray that in the waiting God makes you the wife that he will one day need you to be.
     It is easy to wish away the season of singleness but one of the greatest things you can do for your          husband is to pray that God would use this season to mold and shape you into the perfect wife for
     you future husband. Pray that He would use this time of waiting to do something beautiful in you
     that will benefit your husband and marriage.

  2. I love this!! I have a journal of prayers for my future husband that I will give him on our wedding day! I love the last one you added because for so long I was focused on praying for him I didn't even think about praying for myself and being prepared to be a wife! I love this post :)

  3. I love #5…just as much as I pray that my future husband is using our time apart to become a better person I also hope I can use this time to become a better wife. And that when we do finally meet it will be within God's perfect timing! :)
