Bible verses to pray over your future husband
If you are a single Christian woman that desires to get married, then praying for your future husband is probably something you have done before.
Maybe you did it intentionally by taking part in 31 days of praying for your future husband challenge. Or maybe you did it unintentionally as an outcry to God during your waiting season.
Both reasons are very valid and very common.
Because the truth is, most of us think of what our future husbands will look like, be like, and feel like daily.
While I believe we should not make marriage an idol and try our best to not get consumed with our heart’s desire for marriage and love, I also understand how prevalent it is.
That’s why I include praying for your future husband into my philosophy of how to manifest love into your life. The art of speaking things into existence is a very powerful tool that is even backed in the Bible:
The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. – Proverbs 18:21
Therefore, what you pray over your future husband today, can materialize tomorrow!
Praying the right bible verses about finding a good husband will not only bless the man God has for you but also help you focus on the godly characteristics you need to look for in a man.
Here is how to pray for your future husband.
1. Matthew 6:33
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
There is no way I can pray for my future husband without including this bible verse.
Just as much as you want your life to be completely aligned with God’s will, you want to pray for your future husband’s life to be as well. As he is seeking God and putting Him first, he is prayerfully going to bump into you.
Because no matter how noble his ambitions are, if he is not aligned with Christ it will lead to a lot of pain and frustration in his life and eventually in yours.
2. Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give your hope and a future.”
I speak from experience when I say that life knocks you down at times.
When it feels like nothing is working and you are wondering how the things you desire will come to pass, it’s easy to start doubting God’s love for you.
But the truth is, His plans are good!
Therefore, praying for your future husband to remember God’s faithfulness and trust in him when things don’t seem to add up will strengthen his faith and devotion.
3. 1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure.
Lust is probably one of the biggest reasons in today’s culture why so many men have a hard time committing.
Online dating and the availability of so many women make it less desirable to get into a relationship and eventually married.
As a woman, you and I both have experienced how indecisive men can be at times. That’s why praying for your husband to resist sexual temptation and finding a way to honor God is so important.
4. Philippians 4:6-7
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
There is no person in this world, that doesn’t have anxious thoughts at times.
The fear of the unknown often sends us down a roller coaster of emotions and worries.
And then the only thing you can do is to pray for peace and protection. Therefore, it is a good idea to cover your future husband with this bible verse whenever possible.
5. Galatians 6:9
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
Last but certainly not least on the list of bible verses to pray for your future husband that will cover him in his spiritual pursuit is a reminder that if we strive to please God, we will reap joy.
Pray that your future husband remains steadfast and continues to do good, even when he cannot see the results. So that he will see God’s blessings in his life in due time.
I chose the first five bible verses because I wanted to focus on your future husband’s well-being and spiritual life. These verses are chosen so that you can cover him in prayer today as his future bride.
However, as much as we need to focus on his sanity and safety, praying for your future husband is also a great way to manifest what type of man you want. That’s why the last five bible verses focus on the qualities of a godly husband.
