See him the way God sees him.

“Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored [to a spiritual tone of mind and heart]. The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]” James 5:16, Amplified.

With all of the challenges my husband and I faced over the 21 years that we have been together, one reason I stayed with him was because I didn’t want to leave and someone else reap the benefits of all the prayers I have prayed for him. I knew God was going to transform his life, I just didn’t know when. I knew God would help him learn how to lead our family, but I didn’t know when. I knew God was going to show my husband how to be the man He called him to be, I just didn’t know how or when. I prayed for him more than I prayed for myself, and God has answered my prayers.

A trick of the enemy is to cause a woman to become so hardened in her heart towards a man that she no longer prays for him with compassion and faith. Her heart is so angry that her once humble and sweet prayers turn into a bitter venting session about what he is and is not doing.

For a real man to change, it requires the hand of God. No matter how good the sex is, how good the cooking is, how fine your body is, or how encouraging your words are in his ears, it takes the power of God’s Holy Spirit working in a man’s heart and mind to bring true change. It also requires your faith and your patience.

I believe that every man wants to be the man God created him to be, he just doesn’t know how. Keep praying and interceding for him in your alone time with God. Declare that he is a Psalms 112 man and other scriptures God leads you to declare over his life. He may be a good man, but God desires to make him into His man who He can use to fulfill His purpose and plan. God is no respecter of persons. What He has done for me and countless of others, He will do for you!

Prayer: Father God, thank you for ministering to my heart. I pray for the man you have given me. Way before he was mine, he belonged to you. You love him far more than I ever could. I ask that you cause him to see himself the way you see him. Open his heart to receive your love and your wisdom. Teach him how to lead our family. Help me to believe the truth of your Word and to be patient. Help me to be the wife he needs and to see him the way you see him. Make him into the man you destined him to be. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Read Romans 8:34; Hebrews 10:36

**Please Note** It is important to note that my husband already knew the Lord when we met, but was needing God’s help in learning how to lead his family well. The fact that he already had a relationship with God made it easier for me pray for him and then trust God to deal with his heart. If you are believing God to save your husband who doesn’t know Jesus, it would be wise to not compare my situation with yours. If you are praying for a man who is unsaved, he could surrender his life to the Lord or reject Him and completely turn away. This is because God never overrides our will. If he doesn’t give his life to the Lord, it’s not because you are not praying hard enough. Even with your best efforts, my sister, understand that God has given us all the power to choose Him or reject Him. To my single sisters, please marry someone who knows the Lord and has a growing relationship with Him. This will save you lots of heartache and pain. 💛

  1. 🌾 Amen. I have seen what God has done in my husbands and he’s not finished with him. Back when we lived in Arkansas this took place back in 2009. I got up to go to church and my husband had a long night at work he was to tired to go to church While sitting in the pews at church I had a text message from him and he said pray for me. I said what do you want me to pray for, there was no response I ask him again still no response from him. I don’t remembered what I prayed for that day while I was in church but after the sermon ended. I got up went to the woman’s restroom. And as I walked past the bulletin on the wall I saw a devotional book mark. And it said. How to Pray for your Husband. I knew that was from God. And I was just with smiles 😊 all day. It’s stated about his mind to have the mind of Christ. Pray for his Hands to pray 🙏🏽and to Pray for his feet not to be wanting to run for temptation. Pray for his eyes pray for his heart. And a list went on. I still have that devotional scripture to this day. And ladies we must really and I mean really pray for our husbands to Minds because sometimes it can be like a wave in the sea or a double minded man which it can be dangerous that’s what’s really important when it comes to our husbands Minds. Pray for your husband to have the Mind of Christ. Because they are the head of the household and that’s where Satan attacks. And we women are the heart of the household keeping our 🏠 Homes’s in order. Glory be to our Heavenly Father. Amen 🙏🏽

    1. I Dear God I ask in Jesus name to give my husband the mind of Christ thank you Jesus always amen and amen

    2. Dear Heavenly Father I ask you to first give me the strength and ability to continue to pray diligently for my husband and family. Now please God give my husband the mind of Christ to love as Christ did, And I know everything else will follow In Jesus name Amen Amen Amen

  2. Amen Thank you God I continue to wait patiently on your decision from my life in my relationship as I pray daily for your will and your direction in Jesus name Amen

  3. Amen! This is a word for me today that speaks exactly to where I am. I too have become weary in praying for my husband and my heart hardened. It’s a wake up call to begin praying again in earnest. I know my husband desires to be a great man of God and he will be. I pray for the Holy Spirit of God to work in him and bring about true and lasting change!

  4. The key word here today is that only God can reach and change our husband’s heart. Even our earnest prayers will not override our husband’s will though. Our husbands have the freedom to choose to submit to God’s draw on their hearts or resist. There are those of us who pray earnestly for many years but still see the man walk away. To that sister I say, “You are not the problem!” He didn’t walk away because you didn’t pray right or pray hard enough. He walked away in rebellion to God. There is a time when we let go and pray only as God leads. Allow the sweet presence of Holy Spirit to lead you and confort you.

  5. What do you do when your husband leaves and moves in with another woman? I have prayed and believed the Lord for a change.

    1. Sometimes the things we want are not the things God has for us. We can’t see the future but God can. Satan is hard at work to destroy our families and our lives. I married a man who was not a man of Christ. I tried everything to make him love me. I allowed he to abuse me in every way. I was in that relationship for 4 years. We got divorced and I had to find my way back to Christ. God sent me a wonderful man to love and protect me. There was no way I could live for God in the prior marriage. We don’t always know what we are asking God for. We have to always pray for the will of God. I pray God will comfort and supply the desires of your heart,according to His will for your life..God is always so good to us!!!!

  6. My husband was saved at an early age but has trouble attending church because he was made to 24 /,7 as a child and was not allowed to celebrate or participate in a lot sports. He’s saved but has trouble going to church and being the man God had purposed him to be 🙇

  8. This has been a true blessing to me…. I’m not married but has been dating someone for 7 years…. When we first started dating we would always attend church services together…. Within the past year, he stopped attend church because of something happened at church…. I’m praying for him that God will save his soul and lead him to a church.

  9. As a single woman I’m constantly looking at marriage and wife information. So that when I become a wife, the tools are in my belt. I’m fully aware that you have no idea what your situation will be like. I’m also aware that if you dont plan to take action, with some form of preparation you will blind when the time comes. I take in all information, store it for later. Some things I use now, which h allow me to establish a great foundation. I’m praying for my husband now, acknowledging that is starts before you meet. So when I have my husband praying for him will already be second nature for me. I know that he will only change, grow, love, and live with the word of the lord on his lips. Patience is keep for any relationship but its especially important in a godly marriage. For those marriage go under attack constantly.
