O Jesus, lover of the young, the dearest Friend I have, in all confidence I open my heart to You to beg Your light and assistance in the important task of planning my future. Give me the light of Your grace, that I may decide wisely concerning the person who is to be my partner through life. Dearest Jesus, send me such a one whom in Your divine wisdom You judge best suited to be united with me in marriage. May her/his character reflect some of the traits of Your own Sacred Heart. May s/he be upright, loyal, pure, sincere and noble, so that with united efforts and with pure and unselfish love we both may strive to perfect ourselves in soul and body, as well as the children it may please You to entrust to our care. Bless our friendship before marriage, that sin may have no part in it. May our mutual love bind us so closely, that our future home may ever be most like Your own at Nazareth.

O Mary Immaculate, sweet Mother of the young, to your special care I entrust the decision I am to make as to my future wife/husband. You are my guiding Star! Direct me to the person with whom I can best cooperate in doing God’s Holy Will, with whom I can live in peace, love and harmony in this life, and attain to eternal joys in the next.
Amen.

Prayer is an essential part of the believer’s life, Or at least it should be and for the Christian husband prayer is essential for a vibrant and thriving marriage. As the old 1990’s adage goes, What Would Jesus Do? Well, Jesus prayed all the time and would often wake up early in the morning to go off and pray by himself (See Luke 5:16). If Jesus, who is perfect, coveted his prayer time with his father in heaven then we, as men who are to be following His example, should desire it all the more. Jesus also prayed for us, His bride, teaching us as husbands one of the ways we are also to love our wives, through prayer.

Every Christian husband should have prayer as a first resort in any and all situations with their wife. We should be the first to suggest prayer and to lead her in prayer. I admit this is a difficult thing to do, especially when you are in the heat of an argument. The last thing you want to do is stop and try and be spiritual, but it is the very thing that needs to happen. I’ve heard many Christian husbands voice their struggle with praying with and for their wives. This is a major tragedy in the Church that the men do not know how to pray.

Let’s change that!

As Paul would write, “I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands…” – 1 Timothy 2:8

One simple and powerful way to begin to pray for your wife is to pray Scripture over her. When we don’t have the words, let’s go to the Word.

So, Here are 17 verses to pray over your wife.

Since praying for our wives is EXTREMELY important, especially when we’re standing for marriage restoration, Proverbs 21:1 is VERY reassuring because it says The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD; he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases. And we can’t let ANYTHING we see or hear convince us otherwise; even our wives’ own actions and words because Jeremiah 10:23 tells us I know, O LORD, that a man’s life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps. That’s confirmed again in Proverbs 16:9, which says In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps. Proverbs 20:24 even says A man’s steps are directed by the LORD. How then can anyone understand his own way? So speak the Word of God and life into the restoration of your marriage and use the following restoration prayers to release God’s awesome power to save, mold and transform your wife into the godly woman you desire as you stand in faith and obedience on the power and promise of His Word for the full restoration of your marriage and family.

A man’s stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth; from the produce of his lips he shall be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit. Proverbs 18:20-21 That is what the Scriptures mean when God told him, “I have made you the father of many nations.” This happened because Abraham believed in the God who brings the dead back to life and who brings into existence what didn’t exist before.
Romans 4:17 (NLT) Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. Colossians 4:2

Dear Lord, I give you praise and honor that _____’s mind is steadfast because she trusts in You, and that You will always keep her in perfect peace. Isaiah 26:3
And I thank You that she will always listen to You and live in safety and at ease, without fear of harm or evil. Proverbs 1:33
I give You praise, Lord, that _____ is blessed, and does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. Thank You that she delights in Your law and meditates on Your Word day and night, and that she is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. And thank You that whatever she does prospers.
Psalm 1:1-3
I thank You, Lord, that _____ does not forget what Your Word teaches and that she keeps Your commands in her heart, prolonging her life for many years and bringing her prosperity. Thank You that love and faithfulness never leave her because they are bound around her neck and written in her heart. Thank you for always blessing her with favor and a good reputation, and that she trust in You with all her heart and does not rely on her own understanding. I thank You that she acknowledges You in all her ways and that You make her path straight. Proverbs 3:1-6
Thank You, Lord, that my wife accepts Your Word and stores up Your commands in her heart, and turns her ear to wisdom and applies her heart to understanding. Thank You that she calls out for insight and understanding; looking for it as for silver and searching for it as for hidden treasure. And I give praise that she understands the fear of You, LORD, and finds Your knowledge because You give wisdom, and from Your Word comes knowledge and understanding. Proverbs 2:1-6
So she will always understand what is right and just and fair, and she understands every good path. May wisdom and knowledge always be in her heart and pleasant to her soul, and may discretion and understanding always protect and guard her.
Proverbs 2:9-11
Father, may _____ always keep Your commands and never forsake Your teaching. Bind them upon her heart forever; fasten them around her neck. When she walks, let them guide her; when she sleeps, let them watch over her; when she awakes, let them speak to her. For Your commands are a lamp, Your teaching is a light, and the corrections of discipline are the way to life; keeping her from the immoral man, from the smooth tongue of the wayward husband. Let her not lust in her heart after his beauty or let
him captivate her with his eyes, for he would reduce her to a loaf of bread, and the adulterer would prey upon her very life. Proverbs 6:20-26
And I thank You that Your wisdom saves my wife from the ways of wicked people, from anyone whose words are perverse, who leave the straight paths to walk in dark ways, who delight in doing wrong and rejoice in the perverseness of evil, whose paths are crooked and who are devious in their ways. And thank You that it saves her from the adulterer, from a wayward husband with seductive words, who has left the partner of his youth and ignored the covenant he made before You. He would lead her down to destruction because none who go to him return or attain the paths of life. Therefore, I thank You for leading my wife to walk in the ways of godly women and keeping to the paths of the righteous.
Proverbs 2:12-20
Thank You, Lord, that _____ will always respond to Your rebuke, and that You pour out Your heart to her and make Your thoughts known to her. Thank You that she never rejects You when You call, and that she always gives heed when You stretch out Your hand. Thank You that my wife does not ignore Your advice or fail to accept Your rebuke, and that You will never laugh if she experiences disaster, or mock if calamity overtakes her.
Proverbs 1:23-26
Thank You, Lord, for filling my wife with the knowledge of Your will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding, and that she lives a life worthy of You and pleases You in every way. And thank You that she is bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of You, being strengthened with all power according to Your glorious might, and for her great endurance and patience. Thank You that she joyfully gives thanks to You, Lord, because You have qualified us to share the inheritance in Your kingdom of light. You have rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son You love, in Whom we have redemption and forgiveness of our sins. For by Him all things were created, all things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, all things were created by Him and for Him. Colossians 1:9-16
For this reason, I kneel before You, Father, and pray that out of Your glorious riches, You will strengthen _____ with power through your Spirit in her inner being, so that Christ will dwell in her heart through faith. And I pray that she, being rooted and established in Your love, will always grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Your Son, Jesus Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge-that she may be filled to the measure of all of Your fullness. Now to You who are able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to Your power that is at work within us, to You be glory in the church and in our marriage, and in Christ Jesus for ever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:14-21
