prayers for men

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.

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.

Here’s a set of P.O.W.E.R prayers that you can use to kickstart your prayers…

  1. Wow Father i thank you for God Fearing Man u have given unto my life, in ups & down he encourages me to be still & know that ur God. He is really a blessing to me may u countinue using him in Jesus wonderful name

  2. 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! At the end of the day God makes the right choices for us because he’ll never give us anything less than what we deserve. His timing is always perfect…Let Go And Let GodThank U Lord

  3. I pray for my husband every day, even after he left our home. Decided he wanted to be of the world. His decision he ended everything. But still praying for him.

  4. Eversince I was single,I prayed for the right man.God sent admirers but only one was persistent to put God in the center of our lives & he’s my husband. I always pray for him despite the differences we have. Thank you Lord for sending him coz he gave me a purpose to live life meaningfully.

  5. I pray for my man every day . That God makes him well again . What would my world be like with out him . He is my rock . And I love him .more than all the stars in the sky .

  6. 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.
