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!

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.

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!
Several years ago, I found the 31 Days of Praying for Your Husband challenge on a blog that I followed. As I was reading through the post it occurred to me, even though I did not have a husband, I should be praying for my future spouse. I could take the thirty-one day challenge and pray for my future husband. Since I was twenty-one, I have been doing this prayer challenge every few months, lifting my future spouse up to the Lord in prayer. Over the years it has helped shape a young girl’s romanticized dreams, into a young woman’s practical heartfelt desire.
In Ephesians 6:18, Paul instructs all believers to pray for one another. This includes earnest prayer for your husband or future husband. It is good for him, it is good for you, and it is good for the spiritual health of your home, or the home that you will have one day (Proverbs 31:11-12). Satan desires and seeks to destroy your husband ( future husband ), particularly his character and his leadership. So bless your future husband, or the husband that God has already brought you together with, by praying for him!
This prayer challenge is near and dear to my heart, and has taught me a lot. I’m thrilled to share it with you! I hope that this will encourage you to pray for your future spouse, or the man that God has already blessed you with.

Have you done this prayer challenge before? If not, will you give this challenge a try?
Prayer is a beautiful and powerful thing, and I am a huge fan of praying as much as possible. One of the most beautiful things you can pray about, in my opinion, is praying for your future spouse. It’s one thing that you can do for them regardless of if you know who they are or not, regardless of if your paths have crossed, and regardless of if you’re ready for a serious relationship. So on that note, here are a few things I pray for my future husband and the relationship we will share one day.
I pray that my future husband finds himself surrounded by people who love and support him in every moment of his life. Until I am in his life and able to love and support him through everything, I hope that he is able to find this through other people. Whatever he decides to pursue and whatever he is going through in his life, I pray that he finds love and support around him so that he never feels lost or disheartened.
I pray that my future husband opens himself to accepting God’s callings for him. It’s not always easy to let go and let God, especially when you become set on things in your life going a certain way. For this reason, I pray that he can find acceptance of the life he is meant to live which will eventually lead him to me. Everything will follow God’s plan eventually, but I hope that my future husband keeps himself open to any possibility and finds beauty in whatever he is called to.
I pray that my future husband realizes how much he is loved by God. I have learned that realizing God’s immense love for you results in absolute contentment with yourself. When you realize how much God loves you, you don’t feel the need to go looking for love in other places. This is why I pray that he realizes how much he is loved. I pray that he never needs to resort to other options to feel full or happy and that he is able to find satisfaction through God’s love alone.
I pray for readiness of our hearts when our paths do eventually cross. When I meet the man I end up marrying, I pray that both of our hearts are in a place where we are ready and able to love each other wholeheartedly. Nothing stings worse than meeting an amazing person but having them be dating someone who may not be good for them, or learning they are caught up on a past relationship and unable to move on. This happens all too often, which is why I constantly pray that our hearts will be ready for each other when the time is right.
Finally, I pray that he has God’s protection in all that he does. We all make mistakes and go through rough patches and situations in our lives, and we all have times when we feel like we’re walking through life alone. I pray that God is constantly protecting my future husband and guarding him as much as possible. I pray that he is able to find strength in God in difficult situations and that he realizes he is never walking through life alone. I pray that God watches over him always and allows him to realize that he is regularly being prayed for by someone who can’t wait to love him one day.
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:
