Several years ago, I found the 31 Days of Praying for Your Husband challenge on a blog that I followed. As I was reading through the post it occurred to me, even though I did not have a husband, I should be praying for my future spouse. I could take the thirty-one day challenge and pray for my future husband. Since I was twenty-one, I have been doing this prayer challenge every few months, lifting my future spouse up to the Lord in prayer. Over the years it has helped shape a young girl’s romanticized dreams, into a young woman’s practical heartfelt desire.
In Ephesians 6:18, Paul instructs all believers to pray for one another. This includes earnest prayer for your husband or future husband. It is good for him, it is good for you, and it is good for the spiritual health of your home, or the home that you will have one day (Proverbs 31:11-12). Satan desires and seeks to destroy your husband ( future husband ), particularly his character and his leadership. So bless your future husband, or the husband that God has already brought you together with, by praying for him!
This prayer challenge is near and dear to my heart, and has taught me a lot. I’m thrilled to share it with you! I hope that this will encourage you to pray for your future spouse, or the man that God has already blessed you with.
Day 31 | Pray that your future husband will recognize the lies of the Enemy in his life. Pray that his attitudes and actions will be guided by the truth as he brings his thoughts into captivity to the Word of God (John 8:44; 2 Cor. 10:4-5)
