13 Bible Verses to Pray Over Your Wife

One of the things that I love about my husband is his ability to trust in God no matter what the circumstances. He knows that we serve a God who is powerful and all knowing. A God who works all things together for our good even when we struggle to see it with our natural eyes.

I’ve heard sermons before where the minister spoke about “crazy faith” and “reckless faith.” The kind of faith where you fully let go of a situation and let God take control. It’s the kind of faith I desperately want to have and I am getting there. I am working to not let my situation dictate my mood or doubt to creep in when things stop going as planned. I am constantly reminding myself that it isn’t about me. It’s about Him. And I am making an increased effort to keep my eyes on Jesus so that I don’t start sinking like Peter.

But God is merciful.  And even in times where my faith seems to falter, He still is working things out in my favor. He is also gracious ,having blessed me with a husband that is constantly sending forth prayers on behalf of me and our family. Where I am weak He is strong.

My husband is the kind of man who will stand by my side while I weep and he will look at me and remind me that weeping only endures for a night. He will remind me that my joy is coming in the morning.

As a wife I am thankful for my husband’s companionship; encompassed in that is my deep sense of gratitude for the fact that I married a man who prays – with me, for me and over me.

As we continue to grow in the Word the nature of our prayers is changing. And subsequently we are changing too. I am thankful that God is using my husband to be a blessing to me. Yes, there are moments when I struggle… perhaps after a disagreement or a stressful day. But I married a man who knows someone who is more than capable of handing our problems. A man who is careful and calculated with many of life’s decisions, but thankfully not his faith. Last week I shared 13 Bible verses to pray over your husband. Now it’s time for the ladies.

Husbands, here are 13 Bible verses to pray over your wives…..

    This was an answer to prayer. I always look to the Word for guidance and The Lord was telling me to pray more strongly for the health of my family. And then I found this. Thanks so much!

How to Be an Ephesians 5 Husband for Your Proverbs 31 Wife

How to Be an Ephesians 5 Husband for Your Proverbs 31 Wife

When I say the words, “Proverbs 31 wife,” most people, especially married folk, know what I’m talking about. A Proverbs 31 wife is the true definition of the “trophy wife.” She is a woman her husband can be proud to call his, and as the Bible passage says, “she is more precious than rubies” and surpasses all women.

For many women familiar with the passage, and those who’ve received counsel from women more seasoned in marriage, it becomes something they desire and strive towards. But what about her husband?

Having a true Proverbs 31 wife would be amazing. But it seems incomplete.

What kind of husband would be the perfect match for the Proverbs 31 wife?

Where is the manual, the blueprint for a man like this?

The perfect man for the Proverbs 31 wife is the Ephesians 5 husband. Like the woman in Proverbs, this brotha has it going on. But I’m guessing, unless you are a serious Bible reader, you may not be as familiar with Ephesians 5 as you are with the passage in Proverbs.

1. Give Yourself Up for Her

Picture 1 of 5

Marriage can be seen as one big journey from selfishness to selflessness. An Ephesians 5 husband will give up everything he has in order to make sure his wife has what she needs. No matter how big the sacrifice, meeting her needs becomes his priority.
