25 Bible Verses To Pray Over Your Husband
Amanda Lovelace

I believe that prayer is a vital part of a successful marriage because you are inviting Christ into your marriage to shape and mold one another's character as He desires.

I personally believe you can bring positivity and spiritual nourishment into your husband's life through prayer. The duty of a Christian wife is to pray for your husband's integrity, strengths, weaknesses, spiritual walk, and work ethic for every aspect of His life. My heartfelt desire is that my husband would feel covered in prayer with intentionality and meaning through scripture.

After reading Jennifer Smith's novel The Unveiled Wife, here are a few verses that I have prayed over my husband during our first month of marriage:

1. That he lives in accordance with God’s plan for his life (Ephesians 4:1-2)

"I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love." (NKJV)

2. That the Lord would bless his work (Proverbs 22:29)

"Do you see a man who excels in his work?
He will stand before kings;
He will not stand before unknown men." (NKJV)

3. That he would lean on Christ in his trials (Psalm 46:1)

"God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble." (NKJV)

4. His integrity (Proverbs 11:3)

"The integrity of the upright will guide them,
But the perversity of the unfaithful will destroy them." (NKJV)

5. His temptations (1 Corinthians 10:13)

"No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God isfaithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it." (NKJV)

6. That he would have a giving heart (Proverbs 28:27)

"He who gives to the poor will not lack,
But he who hides his eyes will have many curses." (NKJV)

7. For discernment in handling finances (Luke 16:13)

“No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” (NKJV)

8. That he would trust in God’s plan, not his own (Jeremiah 29:11)

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope." (NKJV)

9. That he would give everything to the Lord in Prayer (1 Thessalonians 5:17)

"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing." (NKJV)

10. That he would seek wisdom (James 1:5)

"If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him." (NKJV)

11. That God would give him discernment (Philippians 1:9-10)

"And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ." (NKJV)

12. That the Lord would teach him how to be a good husband & likewise me a good wife (Ephesians 5:22-33)

"Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body." (NKJV)

13. That he would submit his fears to God (Psalm 118:6)

"The Lord is on my side;
I will not fear.
What can man do to me?" (NKJV)

14. That he would fully grasp his purpose in Christ (Romans 8:28)

"And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose." (NKJV)

15. For his health (1 Corinthians 6:12)

"All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any." (NKJV)

16. For strength (Psalm 28:7)

"The Lord is my strength and my shield;
My heart trusted in Him, and I am helped;
Therefore my heart greatly rejoices,
And with my song I will praise Him." (NKJV)

17. That he would be surrounded by people who bring him up (Proverbs 13:20)

"He who walks with wise men will be wise,
But the companion of fools will be destroyed." (NKJV)

18. That he would boldly declare the Truth of the Gospel (Acts 28:30-31)

"Then Paul dwelt two whole years in his own rented house, and received all who came to him, preaching the kingdom of God and teaching the things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ with all confidence, no one forbidding him." (NKJV)

19. That he would grow spiritually through reading, studying and prayer (2 Peter 3:17-18)

"You therefore, beloved, since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked; but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen." (NKJV)

20. That he would have a humble, teachable spirit (Proverbs 15:33)

"The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom,
And before honor is humility." (NKJV)

21. That he would be full of patience and peace (Romans 14:19)

"Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another." (NKJV)

22. That he would be quick to forgive (Ephesians 4:32)

"And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you." (NKJV)

23. His Heart (Proverbs 4:23)

"Keep your heart with all diligence,
For out of it spring the issues of life." (NKJV)

24. His Future (Psalm 105: 42-45)

"For He remembered His holy promise,
And Abraham His servant.
He brought out His people with joy,
His chosen ones with gladness.
He gave them the lands of the Gentiles,
And they inherited the labor of the nations,
That they might observe His statutes
And keep His laws. Praise the Lord!" (NKJV)

25. That he would continue to lead and that God would be glorified in our marriage (Ephesians 5:25-29)

"Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church." (NKJV)

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.

I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.

77

We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.

17574

When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Throughout quarantine, something that a lot of us picked up on was working out. With all the free time, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on that "dream bod" you've been wanting for years, or to just feel good about yourself.

The Ultimate Guide To Being A Latinx And Hispanic Community Ally

Educate and celebrate their culture to lift the community up.

It's well known that the Gen-Z and millennial generations are more passionate about social justice and conscious about their decisions as consumers as any other generation to come before us.

For these generations, making mindful decisions about where we like to allocate our money, who we choose to follow on Instagram, and even the books we like to read are extremely important to us. With the rise of the digital age, we are constantly consuming media and content, and so there's no longer an excuse for being uneducated if we want to be educated on a wide range of cultures.

It was a day we all knew would possibly come but hoped it never would. The day the outbreak hit.

I remember, back in March, I was just about to return home from a socially distanced vacation in my Florida home with my mom and grandpa, when my dad called to tell us he was feeling sick. At the time, President Trump hadn't closed the borders, my school was still going back after Easter, and sheer panic hadn't yet flooded our news outlets. We were meant to return home on Saturday, but when the borders closed on Thursday, things got a little more serious.

While we all love Urban Outfitters' graphic tees, it can be hard to justify a $40 T-shirt, so I am always on the hunt to find cheaper alternatives that are just as stylish! Thrifting is always an option for authentic, vintage tees, but we don't always have the time to search through the endless aisles of Goodwill.

Lucky for you, there are still affordable alternatives that don't require quite as much effort.
