Praying for a Husband

The following prayer and scriptures are for the single Christian women who may be searching for a Prayer for a Husband from God.

Jeremiah 29:11 tells us that God does not plan to abandon us, but to give us the future we hope for. God’s love surpasses knowledge and we could only imagine (Ephesians 3:19). The Bible also commands us that we should bring “everything in prayer and supplication.” To pray for a husband, if it is the desire of a woman’s heart, is therefore very biblical for God has commanded us to pray for our every need and desire. It is also right to expect God to lovingly answer our prayer with something that reflects His exceeding goodness! Without faith, it is impossible to please God!

However, it is also true that praying for a husband can become very challenging when we are asked by God to wait for the answer indefinitely. But one thing is sure, His promise in His Word is true – He

always provides for our every need, even the grace to wait for His perfect time.

Matthew 6:33 “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

Luke 12:24 (NASB) “Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap; they have no storeroom nor barn, and yet God feeds them; how much more valuable you are than the birds!”

Psalm 103:1,5 (NASB) “Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; Who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.”

 Ephesians 3:17-19 (NASB) “…that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.”

Jeremiah 29:11 (The Message) “I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.”

Psalm 37:4 (NASB) “Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart.”

If we will choose to delight in God (Psalm 37:4) and trust Him with all our heart and lean not on our own understanding (Proverbs 3:5 ff.), He will lead us to His perfect will, which is good beyond our imagination. There are many single women I know who are joyful and fulfilled despite the yet unanswered prayer for a husband. I also know of women, who have prayed and received a wonderful answer, now being married. I believe that both these groups of women are successful in their prayers because they learned to trust and depend on God to be their source of joy and strength.

But what if our godly mate is already ready for us and waiting but it is you who are not yet ready for him? Another element is that we should also pray for God to prepare us to be a godly wife.

Lastly, because each of us is unique, our prayers should definitely be marked by unique requests based on our desires and even calling or purpose in life. A missionary friend of mine, for example, is asking God for someone with a similar passion for missions. Thus, our prayers for a husband may vary but it will be good to keep in mind that they should be faith-filled prayers based on God’s Word, and honest, heartfelt prayers that are expressions of our trust and intimacy with our Heavenly Father.


Abba Father, I thank You that you love me and that You have an awesome plan for my life! You have plans to give me the future that I hope for.  As I lift up to you my desire for a godly spouse, continue to conform the desires of my heart to Your heart’s desires. Cause me to delight in You more than any other thing.  Prepare me also to be the godly wife, that I will be a rare jewel of a blessing to my future mate. Raise me up to be a Proverbs 31 woman who lives in the fear of You (Proverbs 31:30). Preserve me for my future mate and guard my heart. (Song of Solomon 2:7, 8:9)

I thank You God that even as You are preparing me, You are also raising up for me a man who loves Jesus with all his heart, mind, soul and strength — a man after Your very heart (Matthew 22:37). Raise him up in Your Word, let him be meditating on Your precepts day and night, and bring him success in all he does (Psalm 1, Joshua 1). Bless him and fill him with the knowledge of Your love (Philippians 1:9) and Holy Spirit. May he always about in joy and in the fruits of the Spirit (Romans 15:13). Keep his eyes and his ways pure. I pray that he will make a covenant to guard his eyes and heart (Job 31:1)!

I also pray that he will be a man who is able to lead in righteousness, justice and love (Psalm 45). Raise him up to be a godly husband and father.  Thank You Lord that You know me well and You know how to pick the best mate for me. I trust in Your perfect will and I pray that I will recognize it in the right time. You make everything beautiful in Your time!  In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

We know that the Lord will answer your prayers for a husband because He says he who finds a wife finds a good thing!  Be blessed and stay patient.  If you are looking for other prayers, we have many on this website – take a look : Prayers

    Blessed Be Our Father In Heaven!
    For all things He Brings To Us Who Abide In Him! Do Not worry about who or what nor question why as the Spirit Of the Lord is the One True Sourse of Love. TRUE LOVE Only Rests In God. No person is perfect but in gentle loving and understanding we better ourselves with (eachother). Together we stand and in Love we grow.
    Test not your partner or contemplate being tested by him.
    When your heart pulls you like a magnet trust that the fruit of its purpose is good. Rest, when comes the time, but remain faithful to the divine design God places to strengthen, correct and persevere. People and things are not perfect but God’s plans are perfect. Follow the path of righteousness as love always walks with you…

    I’m a single mother with 3 amazing kids. Its hard at times to know they don’t have a father figure…one that will be there for them. I truly do need a strong husband, one that will comfort me, make me laugh, one that isn’t afraid to stand up and be a step father. I pray that one day..god will bless me with that special husband. Prayers for all of you needing a husband as well..my god bless all of you
