14 Prayers For My Future Husband

Last year, I read a book called “Prayers For my future Husband,” and I loved it dearly, which inspired me to write this post as well. To all of my single ladies, praying for your future husband shouldn’t be done with selfish intent, but it should be done with selfless intentions. Pray for him and his safety, which is why I thought I’d write this post.

This post is a long time coming, but I’m glad to finally get started, so here’s 14 prayers for my future husband! I personally write letters and prayers for my future husband already, but thought I’d make a devotional out of it!

PRAYER ONE

Dear God,

It’s been over 20 years now, which means that sooner of later, the man you have for me is going to walk into my life when you see fit. As you prepare both him and I for a new season of life, mold him into the man you need him to be and want him to be. Continue to shape him into a godly man who never ceases to seek you and your righteousness. Convict him of wrongdoings, of things That are not beneficial to him, and continue to lead him into the purpose that you have laid out for my future husband.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

PRAYER TWO

Dear God,

We always face people who do wrong against us, and I pray that you give my future husband a heart that is willing to forgive, who is tender, and who shows compassion and mercy even to those who do not deserve it. Make the man I should marry into a man who shows the love of Christ in all situations. In times where pain is present, where tears are pouring, and where things seem to be falling apart, make my future husband a man who will always be temperate, self-controlled, and loving through the hard times that we will all face life.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

PRAYER THREE

Dear God,

Heartache is a common feeling and thing in life that many are not able to escape and is unavoidable. There are times where we all give our hearts to the wrong person, and then in the end, we find our hearts on the floor in pieces while wondering how that person could treat our hearts as if it wasn’t fragile. Remove any pain any other women might have caused my future husband that made him believe in a hope that was false, remind him of your promises, and remind him of the things that are to come. Take away the pain of the past, and replace it with the good of the future, for though we go through pain in the night, joy always comes in the morning.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

PRAYER FOUR

Dear God,

Stress is unyielding and never seems to give rest to anyone, for it’s always causing us to go frantic over issues, situations, and deadlines we might have. Stress can bring out the worst in people, but I pray that you instill patience into my future husband so that he might be calm when enduring through overwhelming times and trials. Losing our temper, saying the wrong things, or doing things out of haste have never proven to bring good our way, so I pray that my future husband practices patience and sees the best in all situations, for when we are married, we will have rocky times that will require endurance. If my future husband needs help with patience, convict his heart, teach him, and lead him closer to being like you.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

PRAYER FIVE

Dear God,

Make my future husband a leader instead of a follower. Make him into a man who would rather go right when the world goes left, and make him into a man who says “No” when others say “Yes.” Make him courageous, for this world is full of men who lost their courage due to societal quos. Make him into a man of unshakable faith, a man of integrity, and a man who cannot compare to other men. Women are said to be worth more than rubies, but I also believe the same goes for men, for they are worth more than subjecting themselves to the things of this world. Mold him into a man who has leadership qualities, who is unashamed, and who has the courage and boldness to stand out, for we need more men in the world who are willing to make a change.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

PRAYER SIX

Dear God,

Heal my future husband of any pain that he might have or is enduring at this current moment. Though I am not aware of the man you have picked just for me, I am fully aware that he is out in the world living, breathing, and experiences emotions of happiness, but also of times that bring pain. Through his pain, show him your unending love, your mercy, and your grace. When the world seems to be against him, remind him of who conquered the world and who will be returning soon. As he goes through both happy and sad times, let him do all things for your glory no matter what emotion he feels.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

PRAYER SEVEN

Dear God,

Begin shaping my future husband into a man who will be a great and godly father. Though he is unmarried and without children right now, work on his heart and begin instructing him on what a good father truly is and what a good father does. One day my future husband will be a father, so while he is living his day to day life, convict him of the things that a godly father should not have in his heart, convict him of actions that do not depict Christ, and always remind him that what he does right now, will impact his children, for the present always impacts the future.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

PRAYER EIGHT

Dear God,

No matter how insane his dreams might sound, make them a reality. Make his ambitions come to life, his passions played out in front of his eyes, and make the changes he wants to take place happen in miraculous ways. Give him the desires that his heart faithfully prays for, the things he is trusting you for, and the things that he dreams about daily for. Though many might think his dreams are insane and “impossible,” all things are possible through you, for your abilities are not limited!

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

PRAYER NINE

Dear God,

Make him a man after your own heart before he goes seeking my heart, make him fall in love with you even more before he goes falling in love with me, and make him dependant upon you, before his heart depends on me. Teach my future husband what love truly is, what love means to you, and how you view love in your eyes before he goes seeking love from me. Make him godly, strong, and more Christ-like, and send him to me when the time is right in your will. Make him a man who needs you, for without you, he would be nothing.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

PRAYER TEN

Dear God,

Let him experience your miracles, your mercy, and how wonderful you are each and everyday. Let him always see you in his life, in his work, in all the things that he does. I pray that he has a strong work ethic, that he is passionate about what he does, and that he understands that you want us to do good in all things, for all things are done for your glory. Give him a servant’s heart, a heart that does not stop serving, and a heart that is full of determination and love. Never let him give up, and always show him the importance of serving others before helping himself.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

PRAYER ELEVEN

Dear God,

Thank you for waking him him up today, for giving him another day to live for you, and another day to live in your unending promises. Shape him into a man who looks on the bright side of things rather than the negative side and make him view the cup as half-full rather than half-empty. If his spirit is full of pessimism, change that into a heart full of optimism and joy, for you are the source of where hope and joy is found. Make him realize that life is short, and is better enjoyed embracing in joy rather than sulking in negativity.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

PRAYER TWELVE

Dear God,

Protect him wherever he is right now and that he is safe. Dangers arise everywhere and anywhere, which can cause pain or death to occur. Keep him safe as he travels his daily commute, keep him safe when rain is treacherous, roads are devious, and when conditions are horrible. Keep him safe when he’s walking on the street and that no one harms him, keep him healthy, his heart running, and his vitals steady. Since you are the giver of his life, I pray that you continue to breathe life into him, and that you will protect him through the dangers that are present in this world.

In Jesus’s name, Amen.

PRAYER THIRTEEN

Dear God,

My future husband belongs to you before he ever belongs to me, and I thank your letting my future husband be the man you have chosen for me. You will allow me to be an encouragement to him and a help-meet to him. I promise to be a godly wife, a godly encouragement, a godly counsel, and a godly mother to his children when they are born. Though I pray for my future husband to be these things, I know that he prays for me to be the same things as well, so I ask you to make me into the woman he prays for, for he deserves a woman of virtue. I pray that he is humble, generous, and the God defined husband that you want godly women to seek after. In retrospect, make me the wife you want him to have, for the prayers don’t just go one way.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

PRAYER FOURTEEN

Dear God,

Even if my future husband isn’t the richest man, the most attractive man, or the most sought after man, I will still love him unconditionally. As long as my future husband seeks your heart, you first, and has unending compassion, love, joy, and understanding, then those qualities make him the most attractive man. I pray that he finds riches in joy rather than seeking to find riches in money, I pray that he finds worth in you rather than worth in substances that can only give temporary relief, and I pray that if he is struggling, he seeks you before he loses control.

I pray that he is happy, that he is standing firm in truth, and that he is living in the purpose that you have for him at this very moment, and when we do cross paths when the time’s right, I pray to find him in love with you, for that’s what’s going to make me fall in love with him. Take care of him God, and when you allow me to share his heart, I promise to take care of him too.

In Jesus’s name, Amen.

Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11

And that’s a wrap. I have an entire box filled of prayers for my future husband, as well as my unending letters, and I thought that I’d inspire other girls to join in these 14 prayers! Now, it’s your turn to seek God in prayer for the man who will one day be your husband! Though you are not married right now, it is crucial to pray for your future husband, for he might be enduring pain, battles, and trials right now, so always keep him in your prayers, for what happens in his life now, may impact your marriage later!

In the end, don’t just pray for your future husband for 14 days, but do it everyday. Even when you have married your husband, continue to pray for him out of love! I hope this helped any single girl wanting to pray for her husband, for you are never too young or too old to begin praying for the man God has for you!

    1. I had a small mess up in the title, but it’s titled “31 Prayers For my Future Husband,” and it’s written by Jennifer Smith. It’s a wonderful book and has many great insights! Her husband, Aaron, also wrote one called “31 Prayer For my Future Wife,” so there’s one for both girls and boys, and I reccomend them for they are wonderful resources! God bless you! 🙂
