Praying for the Men

I read several marriage blogs and this one had a post the other day that was so great. It was posted as praying for the wives, but I thought we could swap it and use it to pray for our men. You can find the original post here.  Lets take our men before the Maker of Heaven and Earth.

Our Father, in heaven, holy is your name. 
  • Pray for his spirit of worship today
Your will be done, in earth as it is in heaven
  • Pray for him to hear the whisper of God's voice,
  • To know His will in all that he is doing.
  • Pray for him to find the strength to carry out His will today.
Give us this day our daily bread.
  • Pray for God to provide him the resources he needs today.  
  • For the Lord to provide him abundant time to achieve all that he has to do.
  • Strength to overcome obstacles, and help meeting all the needs of you and your family.
And forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. 
  • Help me to have a spirit of forgiveness towards my husband.  
  • Search my spirit and show me any areas I need to forgive my husband.
  • Help him as he goes through his day today to walk in a spirit of peace and forgiveness.
  • Help him to fully know and understand that he is forgiven, and to see himself as you see him.
And lead us not into temptation,
  • Guard his mind and actions today
  • Pray for any areas where your husband may struggle
Deliver us from evil. 
  • Protect him from the flaming arrows of the evil one. 
  • Protect him from danger.
  • Pray for blessing over him.
For yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, for ever and ever.
  • Help him to have a special Kingdom mindset today.
  • Help him to lean not on his own power, but to depend on You in everything he is doing today.
  • Help him to give You the glory in all that he does.
