5 Prayers for Your Spouse
Updated: May 24, 2021
If you're married or dating and your significant other isn't doing right .... you best be learning to pray. It's the only that will keep you sane.
If you're not yet dating or married, you better learn to pray in advance because it's your only defense against the enemy.
If your prayer life is broad, it's time to learn to be specific. Your spouse's or future spouse's wellbeing is depending on your intercession, so let's get to it. This post will cover 5 areas to pray over for your spouse: His Spirit, His Mind, His Will, His Body, His Emotions. These areas of prayer were all inspired by The Wife Tribe's 2021 Quarter 1 Book Club pick, The Power of a Praying Wife by Stormie Omartian.

1. His Spirit: We cannot survive without faith. There are too many varying degrees of life to not be focused on building faith. Your spouse's walk with the Lord is crucial to providing leadership for your marriage, family, and home. Praying for your spouse's faith to grow can bring blessings of moral integrity, godly counsel, wisdom and so much more.
Romans 10:17 says "faith comes by hearing, and hearing the word of God", therefore it is important to pray that they are open to hearing the word, and reading the word so their faith is built on God's word. Pray that his faith grows so that he believes all things are possible with God (Philippians 4:13). Pray that he can endure trials and that he can gain a positive perspective of strengthened faith when he goes through a difficult experience knowing that all things work together for the good of those that love the Lord (Romans 8:28). Pray for your spouse to be filled with the Holy Spirit so that his faith will not waiver. Pray that he dwells with God so he can depend on His Spirit to fill his spirit.
"My eyes shall be on the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me; he who walks in a perfect way, he shall serve me. Psalm 101:6
