It is a good and Godly habit to start every day with prayer. As you start your day make it a daily habit to have a morning prayer for your husband. A praying wife is a blessing to her husband, to God, and even to their children as you set the example of how a wife needs to treat her husband.
Some people can get up early, think clearly, and get much accomplished early in the morning before the rest of the world, or at least before their house is up. These are the same people who usually have their daily devotional time in the morning. Non “morning people” usually opt for a later time of prayer and Bible reading.
But despite your personal preferences and whether you are a morning lark or a night owl, it is a good practice, just as you greet your family members in the morning to also “greet” your heavenly Father with a “Good Morning” and a “Thank You” for another day of life that He has granted you and a quick prayer asking for His guidance, protection and help for the day.
God encourages His children to pray in the morning. Here is the verse from God’s Word: “My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.” Psalm 5:3 (KJV)
While you should pray even a brief prayer for yourself, take a moment to include your loved ones, especially your husband, during this quick time of morning prayer.
Making Time For A Daily Habit of Morning Prayer For My Husband
Here are some ideas for you to carve out a brief time for morning prayer despite your busy routine.
- Pray during your morning commute to work.
- Prepare morning tasks the night before to give you some extra time in the morning to pray.
- Lock the bathroom door and take an extra few minutes alone in that private room to pray.
- Get up fifteen minutes earlier just to have a bit of prayer time.
- Pray for your husband when you thank God for your breakfast or morning coffee.
- Write a short prayer for your husband in your prayer journal.
- Pray before getting out of bed.
- Put a sticky note on your coffee maker or phone with a reminder to pray for your husband.
What to Pray About Your Husband
A wife knows her husband better than anyone else. But despite that fact, he is an individual. The best way to know what exactly to pray for your husband is to simply ask him what he would like you to pray about concerning him.
Make it a practice to pray about anything that he shares with you as well as the things that concern you, even if they don’t seem to bother him. Here are some topics that you should consider praying about for your husband:
- His job or business ventures
- His physical and mental health
- His spiritual health and relationship with God
- His relationships with family members, children, and friends
- His safety and protection
- His dreams and desires for the future
- His marriage and his wife. (Yes, in praying for your husband, you can also pray for yourself that you will be a good wife to him.)
While you may not cover all of the topics, especially in a quick morning prayer and some of these subjects may not apply to your husband at this particular time of his life, as a wife it is your duty and obligation to pray for your husband.
Good Morning Messages for Your Husband
When your husband’s work may take him away for a few days, take some time to either write out notes for him to tuck into his suitcase or send him encouraging texts while he is away. This is a great way to let him know that he has your unconditional love. Here are some ideas:
- May God richly bless your day with many good things today.
- I cannot wait until you are back in my daily routine. I miss you.
- Remember today, the joy of the Lord is your strength! (Nehemiah 8:10)
- I am praying today that God will grant you the desires of your heart.

- When you are in the center of God’s will, you are in the right place.
- May you have a beautiful morning and a wonderful rest of the day knowing that God loves you and so do I!
- When I count God’s blessings on me, I count you at least twice.
- You are fearfully and wonderfully made, and you are the perfect mate for me.
- I pray today that God will both hear and answer all of your prayers to Him.

How A Morning Prayer for Your Husband Can Strengthen Your Marriage
Thanking God for your husband as you start your day helps to put you into the mindset of love for your husband. Also when you as his wife, humbly intreat God on behalf of your husband, you are helping your husband be the best person that he can be for you. As you, as a Christian wife, submit to your husband you are submitting to God since you are obeying His command for your marriage.
Ephesians 5:22 commands, “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.” (KJV) In a sense, your husband is your “boss”. God has made your husband to be in charge of your home. Since he is only human, and you want to have a good “boss”, he needs your prayers just as you need God to help him to be a good husband.
Therefore when you pray for your husband, you are doing yourself a favor. Praying for your husband makes you a better wife. Being a good wife makes you and your husband happier.
Praying for Your Future Husband
If you are not married or even dating someone regularly, but desire to do so, then pray for your future husband. While you are still single, start today to make the habit of a morning prayer for your husband a priority so it will be an ingrained habit once you are married.
