Cover Him – Prayers For Your Husband


Lately, I’ve come across a number of posts/articles/discussions by women ‘complaining’ about their husbands being laid back in certain areas of their marriages.

The temptation usually is to complain or grumble or nag!

Today, I’d like for us to use another method to get the results we desire – Pray for Our husbands.

Please pray even if you’re very angry with your spouse right now. God will grant you grace and you will see results for these prayers in Jesus name.

“She does him good, and not harm,

all the days of her life. – Proverbs 31:12 [Emphasis Mine]

All the days of her life means whether she’s happy with him or not.


  • I thank You for my life today and I bring my heart before you today. Lord, I surrender to you every ill feeling towards my husband. Father, please remove every anger, bitterness, malice towards my husband, from my heart.
