Welcome to our 14 day journey in “Prayers for our Future Husbands”! We are so excited that you decided to join us for praying for your future husband. This is going to be awesome! And did you know that your future husband needs these prayers? He truly does.
So, of course you can just read these prayers but I would like to ask that you also write these prayers out in your own words in your journal, diary, notebook or whatever works for you. Then, after this 14 day journey, you can save those little prayers in a special box or chest. Then on your wedding day give them to your husband. He can read them whenever he’s having a bad day. He will really love this girls. You can hold onto these prayers forever! But we want them in your own words so that it’s really coming from you and the Lord. Ok, ready to start?! Great! Thank you again for joining! God bless.
Here are the steps simplified:
Step 1.There are 14 payers for you to pray for your future husband for 14 days.
Step 2.We want you as the reader, to read it,
Step 3.Pray it, and
Step 4. Write/or pray it in your own words.
Step 5. Save all your written prayers for your honeymoon! Give your husband one prayer a day on your special honeymoon, it will make it even more special. 😉
But after the 14th prayer it doesn’t have to end there. This 2 week journey is just a jump-start for you! After Prayers for our Future Husbands ends, you can continue to pray in your daily devotions, before you go to bed, when your sitting in the living room, when your doing dishes, ect. Whenever you remember to, just pray!
We hope you will join us in our 2 week prayer journey. Your future husbands need it ladies!
P.S. We also made a 2 week prayer journey for future wives as well! It’s called Prayers for Becoming a Future Wife. Make sure to give that a try as well!
Big News! We now have a sequel to “Prayers for My Future Husband!” Check it out!
Prayers for My Future Husband
Let’s Get Started!
Lord, I don’t know who my future husband will be but you do. So I willingly trust you with my life and his. I want to lift my future husband up to you this weekend Lord. Please give him a great weekend! Help him to enjoy his friends and family. Give him peace and rest from the hard work week. Help him to keep his eyes on you and to encounter your presence in a whole new way! I pray that he would be able to make the right choices and decisions when it comes to his plans this weekend. Help him to be a light and shining example to his friends this weekend. Lord, whatever he does let it be a reflection of his love for you and may he bring you glory. Please help him know you love him and are looking out for him. Thank you Jesus. I love you and want to bring You and my future husband honor.
Lord, please bless my future husband today with the gift of friends. Please bring him godly mentors and companions that will spur him on in the pursuit of godliness. I pray especially that he would have examples of godly men to look up to. I ask that You would give him friends his own age who are seeking You with their lives. Please help him to be surrounded with the people that will draw him nearer to You and not farther away. And please give him friends that will bring laughter and joy into his life.
Dear God, please give my future husband vision and clarity today. Please inspire him with a strong vision for his life. Only you know exactly what his life will hold, and precisely what you want to do through him. Please remind him of that vision every day. Help him to rely solely on you for his strength, and to move forward with confidence. God, I ask you to help him love you more than anything else, running after you, unapologetically seeking you with all his heart. I ask you to give him passion and a selfless, unashamed boldness that can only come from you.
Please help my future husband to be a hard worker. May he work to bring glory to you. Help him to be honest in business and everyday life too. No matter how big or small a thing is. Each and every day even right now help him to make wise choices that bring honor to you. Help him to have integrity and to stand up for what is right.
Lord I pray that my future husband would learn through day to day experiences and trials how to be a good leader. I pray that he would learn the qualities needed to make a great leader for his family and wife. May he learn integrity, strength of mind and above all, love. May he learn to be strong in his beliefs and not back down or give into the ways of the world. I know that being a leader requires boldness and humility, strength but lowliness of heart, wisdom beyond his years but also a meek spirit, I pray that he may learn this and more before he becomes the leader of our family. Bless his day and give him peace and joy. May he be filled with Your Holy Spirit and walk in truth and grace. Thank you for him Jesus! I don’t know who, or where he is or what he is doing right now but I pray for your everlasting joy to be with him. Let him laugh and be lighthearted today. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.
Dear God, I pray that You would bless my future husband as he seeks out the answers to the questions that arise in life. Help him to know that as the Author of all things You have all the answers. And, Lord, help my husband to not be afraid of what the answers might be, but to know that all things have a place in Your plan. Teach him to pursue truth with zeal, but at the same time, Lord, let him accept that he can’t find the answers to some questions on this side of heaven. And, Lord, when the answer is not available this side of heaven, please show him how to hope in You.
Dear God, please help my future husband to love your word, the Bible. Help him to study and learn from it every day. Guide him and give him wisdom when he reads so that he will be able to teach and guide our family someday. Help him to be meditating on it all the time and to not just hear it, but be doing what you tell him to be doing in it as well. Thank you Jesus. Amen.
Dear God, please give my future husband strength and wisdom today. Please give him the strength to face the temptations the world lays constantly before him. Help him in his battles and struggles, and please let him know you’re beside him at all times. Help him grow stronger in you every day. Please grant him wisdom in his decisions in life right now. In everything, please let him pursue wisdom from you. Also, please let him have a wonderful day today.
Thank you so much for everything you’ve done, are doing, and will do in his life.
Lord, please bless my future husband’s Sunday. Let him find rest and peace when he hears your word today. Lord I pray that he would love his family and want to have his own family when he’s married. I pray that he would have a loving heart toward children and that he is soft, gentle and caring. Teach him the abilities that make a great father. Help him to learn now so that when he is a father he will be amazing. Give him amazing leadership skills and a heart to serve his family. Let him recognize the importance of this role and help him to embrace his calling as a future husband and father. Thank you, Lord. Amen.
Dear Lord, I pray that You would give my future husband the humility to ask for help when he needs it. Teach him to turn for help when he needs it rather than trying to face his problems on his own. When he is fighting sins (as I know he will), please show him that in the end, asking for help is worth the momentary humiliation if it means overcoming his vices. Amen.
Dear God, please help my future husband to be a good leader in whatever position you may have him to be in now and in the future. Our home, his work, church, etc may his life and the things that he does be about bringing glory and honor to you. May the other people around him see you through him and want to come to know you. Especially in our home help him to lead our family in a godly way. And give him wisdom and discernment and help in making any hard decisions that might come our way. Thank you Lord. Amen
Lord, please bring my future husband the gift of joy and happiness today! Let his heart be light and care-free. Don’t let the troubles of life or this world bring him down. Let him enjoy life to its fullest today and everyday! Let his laugh be heard and his smiles be seen. Let him be a shining joy to all around him. I pray that his family would encourage him and build him up so that he may do the same for others. Let the clouds of depression and worry see his joy and pass over him. Bring him peace and comfort so that he can experience the fullness of Your goodness Jesus. Thank you Lord! Amen.
Jesus, I pray that you would bless my future husband with the gift of a loving, sweet and tender heart. Let him learn now while he is single to be a loving husband. Help him want to bless others and have a caring attitude. Teach him how to help others while they are hurting. Give him compassion. Let him know how to complete me when I’m stressed or upset. Let him know the right words to say and how to comfort me. And Lord please give him loving friends and family to surround him with so that he never feels alone. Bless his day today and help him feel content and loved! Thank you Lord. Amen.
Lord I pray for strength in my future husband. Help him be strong against the wiles and evils of this world in our day and age. Lord I pray that he would feel strong enough to take on anything this life has to offer him with You by his side. Give him a noble heart, a steadfast spirit and a passionate pursuit for holiness. Let him embrace his calling as a Christian leader in the 21st century and let him know the depth of influence that he has on others. Jesus, give him a fierce love for righteousness and a healthy fear of You, God. Thank you for him Jesus. Who ever he is, wherever he is, thank you for him. I surrender my thoughts and questions, doubts and fears in regards to my future husband. Lord, take control of my love life, I entrust it to You. Please be the King of my heart, be all my hope and dreams. I love you Jesus. Thank you for all that you are doing in my life and in that of my Future Beloved’s! Amen.
Ladies this was the last day in our journey of Prayers for Our Future Husbands. Thank you for joining us and following along! The Lord has truly blessed our time spent writing these prayers. I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Again, thank you for joining us. May God truly bless you and your future husband! We love you all so much. God bless!
My husband and I have always been firm believers in the necessity of prayer. In fact, we both desired to get married young and we both prayed for our future spouse long before we ever met.
God heard our prayers and He answered!
God told my young heart,
I can’t trust you with someone else’s heart until you trust me with yours!”
So, I spent time learning how to trust God, especially with my desire to get married. I faithfully prayed for my future husband.
My husband went through a very similar experience of chasing after God more than chasing after his desire for marriage. He prayed for his future wife and future marriage. Then when he was confident that God brought me into his life for this purpose, he proposed marriage by sharing with me how I was his answer to prayer! It was touching and an incredible testimony of God’s presence in our lives. Right after the proposal, he asked for my hand so we could pray together as fiancés!
Prayer became one of the most significant tools in helping our marriage when hard times hit. We believe it was the foundation of prayer that we established early on in our relationship that helped our marriage survive.
Prayer is how we communicate to our Heavenly Father, the One who designed marriage! Prayer is how we let God know what we are going through and what we desire. Prayer is essential for the life of every Christian.
We wanted to encourage single and engaged people who have a desire to get married to be faithfully praying for their future spouse. We have also had a ton of requests from single and engaged for marriage resources to prepare their hearts for marriage. We heard you! That is why we created:
31 Prayers For My Future Husband & 31 Prayers For My Future Wife
Our hope is that the next generation of people getting married has an established prayer life, has submitted their hearts to God and has trusted God with their lives and future marriage.
31 Prayers For My Future Husband & Future Wife are on pre-order right now for a limited time only!
Check out these resources today or share them with someone you know would benefit!
Who these books would benefit the most:
These books were written for singles who desire the intimacy of marriage, those currently in a serious relationship, and those who are engaged planning for their special day! These are great resources to help teenagers purpose their hearts for what God has for their future marriage or anyone else who feels strongly about getting married and cares for the heart of their future spouse.
Note to single and engaged:
As you seek God’s will for you and your future spouse, as you patiently prepare for your wedding day, we challenge you to begin to be the prayer warrior that God desires you to be. These 2 books have been written to be a starting place and/or guide to help you begin your lifelong journey of praying for your future spouse and marriage. You don’t need to wait until after you’re married to start praying for your future mate. Start today!
A couple of years ago, my mom told me that I should start praying for my future husband. I remember that it excited me! The thought that there was a guy out there that I would someday marry was intriguing. I began praying for my future husband pretty much every night.
A year or two after my mom first talked to me about praying for my future husband, I found a guide on Pinterest that really helped to give direction to my prayers. I prayed about things I had never thought about, or hadn’t thought to pray for. It was awesome!
Since then, my prayers have changed and matured, and I wanted to share my personal guide with all of you today. And make sure you download the free printable at the bottom of the post!
But first, why should we pray for our future husbands?
Think about it. Your future husband is alive right now, facing many of the same struggles and issues as you are. Wouldn’t it be nice to know somebody was praying for you through it all? Same with him!
Also, I think it truly helps us to guard our hearts and focus on the one man that we will marry. When we pray for him, we remember the qualities that are non-negotiable that we hope to see in him. Knowing those, we can say no to guys that aren’t godly or a part of God’s plan for us. To summarize, praying for our future husbands help us to focus on God’s best.
Without further ado, let’s discuss how we should pray for these men of ours!
Pray that your future husband will…
Become a man after God’s own heart. (Acts 13:22)
- This is definitely the most important. Just as David was a man after God’s own heart, our husbands should be as well. They should seek to know God and be like Him.
Love the Lord with all of his heart, soul, mind, and strength. (Mark 12:30)
- Like I mentioned in my post, 8 Qualities to Look for in Your Future Husband, if your husband loves God will all of his heart, soul, mind, and strength, everything else will fall into place. That is the foundation of his life.
Remain physically and emotionally pure. (2 Timothy 2:22)
- Just as it is important for us as single girls to guard our hearts, it is important for your future husband to as well. Pray that he will fight for a life of purity, and for him to honor God, and you, with his body.
Be the spiritual leader of your future family. (1 Corinthians 11:3)
- Again, just as I mentioned in 8 Qualities to Look for in Your Future Husband, the man is to be the spiritual leader of the home. That is not and should not be your role, according to the Bible. Pray that your future husband will rise up to his job and take it seriously, with God as his role model.
Resist sexual temptation. (1 Corinthians 6:18)
- This is very similar to remaining pure, but sexual sin is so difficult that I like to highlight it again. Pray that he will say no to porn, premarital sex, self pleasure, and other forms of sexual sin.
Be physically and spiritually safe. (2 Thessalonians 3:3)
- I love to pray for my future husband’s safety, because we all know this world is crazy 😉 But also pray for his spiritual safety against temptation and the evil one.
Become a prayer warrior. (2 Corinthians 10:3-5)
- Prayer is so important, as you probably know if you are praying for your future husband. Pray that he will realize this and lead a life of prayer!
Love and respect you completely. (Ephesians 5:25-29)
- Ever been in a relationship or friendship where the other person totally didn’t love or respect you? It’s the worst. Pray that he will learn to love you as Christ loves you, and respect you for the treasure you are.
Patiently wait for you. (Genesis 29:20 & 1 Corinthians 13:4)
- You want him to remain pure for you, but you also want him to be patient. Meaning, not being desperate enough to try every online dating site, and go to every party where there are girls. Pray that he will seek God’s will as he waits for you.
Make wise choices. (James 1:5)
- One day, your husband is going to be the head of the house, and you will appreciate it if he makes wise choices that you know are good to follow. Pray that he will seek God’s will in every decision!
Have spiritual endurance. (2 Timothy 4:7-8)
- Who likes a quitter? Pray that your future husband will not quit in his spiritual walk even when it gets hard, but that he will grow stronger in the difficult times.
Be a hard-worker. (Colossians 3:23)
- You want a man that will provide for you and your children one day, and to do this he will have to work hard. Pray that he has a strong work ethic and isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty.
Have a heart for your future children. (Ephesians 6:4)
- One day your future husband is going to be your children’s father, which is the coolest thing to think about. But what if he’s not a good dad? Pray that he will love your children and teach them to follow Jesus with their lives.
Be encouraging and edifying to everyone he meets. (1 Thessalonians 5:11)
- A man that is encouraging to others is so important. He makes a difference and changes the world for God’s good. And a man that is encouraging to others will probably be encouraging to you.
Be missions-minded. (Mark 16:15)
- Our main purpose in life is to know Jesus and make Him known. Pray that your husband is always thinking about how to grow God’s Kingdom by sharing the Gospel with others!

How to Pray for Your Future Husband: Understanding
I started praying for my future husband when I was 17 years old and pregnant with my son. I wanted someone who could love both me and my child. I wanted someone who loved God. God brought me an amazing man. John and I have been married for 23 years now. We had two more biological children, and we’ve adopted three more . . . making that six kids total! God has done more than I’d ever hoped or imagined.
My friend Robin Gunn and I wrote Praying for Your Future Husband a few years ago. The fun part is getting photos from some of the young women who prayed—wedding photos!
Of course there are women who are still praying and waiting, and we’ve gotten letters from them, too. They tell us they are drawing closer to God as they wait . . . and that is exactly what we hoped for!
In the moment, though, it’s hard to understand the wait. It may be hard for your future husband to understand, too. The best thing to do while you wait is to pray.
(And if you’re a mom, grandma, aunt or friend join the young women you love in prayer! Also considering picking up a copy of Praying for Your Future Husband for the young woman in your life!)
There are many things to pray for, but one of them in Understanding. Understanding means trusting that God has a plan. It means being willing to be open-minded about past mistakes, knowing that God’s grace is available to everyone.
Here are 6 ways to pray for understanding.
Pray for Understanding for Your Future Husband.
- Pray God’s Word will flood his heart.
- Pray your future husband will seek God and try to understand what God is doing in His life.
- Pray he has a tender heart that will be understanding of your past mistakes.
- Pray you will be understanding of his.
- Pray that if he has his heart broken, he will be surrounded by good friends who will support him during the healing process.
- Pray that in each of his relationships, he will develop an understanding heart and will always believe God has a different and better plan.
When you pray, rather let your heart be without words than your words without heart. John Bunyan
Friend, God has good plans for your future. Keep trusting. Keep praying! And I’ll be excited to hear where He leads you!
