5 Prayers Every Woman Should Pray For Her Man

black-couple-600x360

Magazine headlines and online articles often draw us in by headlines that promise to tell us the secrets to pleasing our men. Some sources even list out how to be the best wife or girlfriend that we can be by showing support, being vulnerable, showing affection and being a good listener. These are all good things, but is this really the best we can do for our men?

The most important thing we can do for our men is something we are probably not in the habit of doing. It may be something we strive to do more often but for whatever reason are not able to do it consistently.

Sometimes doing this thing is inconvenient or maybe even uncomfortable if we are not sure how. However, this thing is the single most important thing you can do for your man.

This thing is prayer.

As believers, we have the distinct honor and privilege to pray for the men in our lives.  If we are honest, sometimes we don’t know how to pray or grow weary of doing so. This has been the case in my life but I want to encourage you all to commit to praying for your man for 30 days straight. During this process you may realize that you didn’t pray for him as much as you thought or you may find that you don’t know what specifically to pray.

I am challenging you to stand in confidence before the throne of God and pray for purity, obedience, wisdom, exhortation and responsibility (P.O.W.E.R.) in the lives of the men around you. Jesus Christ has already given us the authority to tear down strongholds, bring healing, and deliverance to the men in our lives. Each day as you pray, praise God for the transformation that is taking place in God’s perfect timing.

Below is a set of P.O.W.E.R prayers that you can use to kickstart your prayers. 

PURITY

In the power of Jesus’s name, I claim purity to be released in my man’s life.  I command purity to penetrate the impure places in his heart, mind, soul, and body. I thank you because I know that the light of purity is shedding light in the darkest places of his life. I command the impurity to flee from his spirit now. By faith, I believe these things to be done.

OBEDIENCE

In the power of Jesus’ name, I claim obedience to be released in my man’s life. I bind the spirit of disobedience from his life this day. I take authority over the spirits of distrust, rebellion, and self-will that seek to ruin his life and bind them. They have no place in his life. I loose unwavering trust and humble submission into his life day. By faith, I believe these things to be done.

WISDOM

In the power of Jesus’s name, I command wisdom to be released in my man’s life.  I take authority over the spirit of folly and worldly wisdom and bind it in the name of Jesus. I loose the gift of discernment into his life, that he would know your works from the works of Satan. Bless your servant with a heart of understanding and give wisdom generously to him. I rebuke all doubt that would hinder your gift of wisdom, for we know that wisdom is only granted when asked in faith and without doubt. By faith, I believe these things to be done.

EXHORTATION

In the power of Jesus’s name, I command the gift of exhortation to be released in my man’s life.  Open wide his mouth to boldly speak forth truth to anyone that crosses his path whose heart is ready to receive the truth. I take authority over the spirit of laziness that would keep him from studying your word; and therefore keep him from sharing biblical words of knowledge and encouragement. I renounce the spirit of fear that would keep him from speaking truth in times where the truth is unpopular. By faith, I believe these things to be done.

RESPONSIBILITY

In the power of Jesus’s name, I command a generous portion of responsibility to be released in my man’s life. May he always be aware that you have first and foremost called him to be holy and sanctified. I bind the attitude of carelessness that would keep him from taking up his responsibility to live out your call. I cast down the strongholds of sexual immorality in his life because you have said that he is responsible for his body which is your temple and is to be honored in all things. Your holy call is irrevocable; and therefore, he is responsible to live it out. May he proudly take up his responsibility to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with you.

    Yes! It’s very important…Tell him the man he wants for you and not the man you want for yourself, also tell him your heart desires!

    I read the whole article. My man is the one who taught me how to pray for him. He has the gift of discernment. He wouldn’t continue when we first thought of starting till he heard my Christian testimony. So he asked. I gave it and didn’t hold back. Nothing to lose so honesty reigned. Prayer is the basis of our relationship & will always be. Scriptures & gospel hymns are also an integral part. We hope to write our journey someday.
