LORD, I thank You for my husband. Thank You for creating him in Your image, designing him for greatness and strength.
God, please give my husband the joy of knowing true wisdom and following good counsel. Help him to distinguish between Your life-giving truth and the enemy’s destructive deception. Give him godly friends who will challenge him to spiritual greatness.
God, I pray that my husband will read Your Word daily, eager to meet with You and to hear Your voice. Make him more hungry for You than for anything else in his life. Help him to meditate on the Scriptures all day long so that his spirit is refreshed, his thinking is renewed, and his life is transformed.
I pray that my husband will be like a great tree planted by streams of water, its branches reaching up to the sky. May my husband be a mighty man of God, strong in character. In his spirit, may his arms be lifted in praise to You all day long. May he raise his requests and burdens to You.
I pray that my husband will be firmly grounded and established in Your supportive, nurturing love. May his roots grow deep, seeking and finding the unseen aquifer of Living Water. May he continually drink in Your energizing Spirit. I pray that the ministry and influence of the Spirit will flow into every aspect of my husband’s life.
Lord, please enable my husband to be like a tree with thick foliage, shielding those within its shade. Help him to be an effective protector for his family. Cause him to be alert to danger, and give him the courage and wisdom to know how to guard his family well, both physically and spiritually. Make him vigilant in prayer. Show him how to be a shelter for our family in the midst of a harsh world.
I pray, too, that my husband will be like a tree filled with abundant fruit. May he be able to provide for his family in healthy ways, both physically and spiritually. May his own spirit bear the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, gentleness, kindness, faithfulness, and self-control.
I pray that my husband will be like a tree whose leaf does not wither. Keep him from compromising when things are difficult or when temptation is fierce. Protect him from the “withering” of discouragement or fear. Keep him leaning on You, drawing his strength from you.
Bless him with the full prospering of his soul. Fulfill all of Your dreams for him, and crown his efforts for You with success.
And, Lord, show me, please, how to bring strength and refreshment to my husband, encouraging and supporting him. As I lift him up to You, I thank You that You are raising him up into greatness.
