8 Powerful Prayers for My Wife

Your wife is an important figure in your life. Here are 8 powerful prayers for her.

1. Blessing Prayer

Lord, every day I am reminded how blessed I am to be married to my wife. She is a beautiful, kind, and patient woman who lives every day for You. Jesus, help me never cease to be a blessing to her as well. Encourage me as I look for additional ways to serve her. Help me be in tune with her needs so I serve her in ways that truly benefit her and not just in ways that make me look good. Amen.

2. Demonstrate My Love Prayer

Jesus, I am so thankful for my wife. Thank You for placing her in my life and allowing me to know her more and more each day. Help me, Jesus, as I work to demonstrate my love to her each day. I want to show her my love through my actions, service, and words, but I get distracted and busy and often forget. Be my reminder, Lord, and help me serve her how I would want her to serve me. Amen.

3. In Conflict Prayer

In the midst of conflict, Lord, You are present. My wife and I are struggling to see eye to eye, and I am struggling to see You in her. Please, Jesus, be my help. Teach me how to deal with this conflict and to not go to sleep angry. Remind us how much we love each other. Please be with her too, Lord. Though I know I am struggling, I know she is struggling with this as well. Please help us through this, God. It is hard to have hope, but I know I have You. Amen.

4. Greater Things Prayer

God, how do I empower my wife to be her best self? She is such an amazing wife and mother, but we often get too stuck in a routine and forget to push each other to greater things. I pray for the strength to be intentional about slowing down. Help me follow through with the things I say I will do for her. She is always taking care of us, but help me give her more time to do what she needs to do to take care of herself. Amen.

5. Give Her Rest Prayer

Lord, please give my wife rest. She is exhausted yet struggles with knowing how to give herself a break. She deserves to feel cared for. Help me care for her in the way she needs to be cared for. Though I do not always know what it is she needs, I know that You do. Give her peace in the quiet and take away all restlessness and anxiety from her. Remind us both that You are in control. I love You, God. Amen

6. Lay Down My Life Prayer

Jesus, I pray for my wife. Each day, teach me how to lay my life down for her and live in a way that glorifies You and her. Keep her healthy, Lord, and allow me to create space for her emotional, mental, and spiritual growth in a way that aids her health. Teach me how to build her up rather than break her down. I love You, God. Help me love her the way You love the church. Amen.

7. Healthy Communication Prayer

God, I pray that You help me have healthy communication with my wife. Give me the strength and patience to be slow to speak and quick to listen. May we not exasperate each other but call each other out in love. Help me be honest and give me the humility to both apologize often and forgive in the way only possible through You. Amen.

8. She is Struggling Prayer

Heavenly Father, my wife is struggling today. She is emotionally drained and hurting. While I want to be there for her, I know that what she really needs right now is You. Show me how to show her Your love in this moment. Please be her comfort and help me show her Your patience and Your kindness. Be present in this house today, God. We love You.Amen
