Please pray for my family. My husband lost his job 8 months ago and a few days later I found out I was pregnant. I am now nearing the end of my pregnancy and my husband has yet to find a job that is suitable for our growing families needs.
Myself and our two year old are currently living with my parents while my husband completes a temporary job(which ends this week) in another state. We are believing for God’s favor and blessings, so that my husband will find a job with health benefits and suitable compensation for his talent/hard work.
Also, we are believing to be able to have our own home again soon. Thank you for your prayers.

Prayer for my Husband’s Work/ Finances
Several years ago, I read the book Power of a Praying Wife by Stormie Omartian. I really enjoyed the book, and typed up many of the prayers from the book so I could pray them over again for my husband, Joshua. This is the second in a blog series on Mondays this summer with prayers for husbands. I encourage you to print the prayers and pray them along with me for your own husband!
See first prayer here.
Prayer for His Work
Lord, I pray that You would bless the work of my husband’s hands. May his labor bring not only favor, success, and prosperity, but great fulfillment as well. If the work he is doing is not in line with Your perfect will for his life, reveal it to him. Show him what he should do differently and guide him down the right path. Give him strength, faith and a vision for the future so he can rise above any propensity for laziness. May he never run from work out of fear, selfishness, or a desire to avoid responsibility. On the other hand, help him to see that he doesn’t have to work himself to death for man’s approval, or grasp for gain beyond what is a gift from You. Give him the ability to enjoy his success without striving for more. Help him to excel, but free him from the pressure to do so.
I pray that You will be Lord over his work, and may he bring You into every aspect of it. Give him enough confidence in the gifts You’ve placed in him to be able to seek, find and do good work. Open up doors of opportunity for him that no man can close. Develop his skills so that they grow more valuable with each passing year. Show me what I can do to encourage him. I pray that his work will be established, secure, successful, satisfying, and financially rewarding. May he not be lagging in diligence, (but) fervent in spirit, serving the Lord (Romans 12:11). Let him be like a tree planted by the stream of Your living water, which brings forth fruit in due season. May he never wither under pressure, but grow strong and prosper (Psalm 1:3). Prayer for His Finances
Lord, I commit our finances to You. Be in charge of them and use them for Your purposes. May we both be good stewards of all that You give us, and walk in total agreement as to how it is to be dispersed. I pray that we will learn to live free of burdensome debt. Where we have not been wise, bring us restoration and give us guidance. Show me how I can help increase our finances and not decrease them unwisely. Help us to remember that all we have belongs to You, and to be grateful for it.
I pray that (Joshua) will find it easy to give to You and to others as you have instructed in Your word. Give him wisdom to handle money wisely. Help him make good decisions as to how he spends. Show him how to plan for the future. I pray that he will find the perfect balance between spending needlessly and being miserly. May he always be paid well for the work he does, and may his money not be stolen, lost, devoured, destroyed or wasted. Multiply it so that what he makes will go a long way. I pray that he will not be anxious about finances, but will seek Your wisdom first, knowing that as he does, we will have all we need (Luke 12:31)
Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.
Psalm 1:3That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.
Luke 12:31 But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.
Thank you for my husband. Thank you for providing him a job. I pray a blessing over him right now, asking that you would anoint him today. Give him the strength to get through work joyfully and to be an encouragement to others around him. Use him to benefit his company. May he be appreciated by his boss and other teammates. I pray that he has an extraordinary day. I also lift up other husbands, especially those who do not have jobs. May you provide opportunities for them so that they may provide for their families. I pray that they would be willing to work extra hard this season and that you would reward them for their endeavors. I pray a blessing that husbands would feel respected by their wives and that marriages would be honored in Jesus name AMEN!
