Prayers for my husband from his head to his feet | Day 15


Prayer for his Safeguard and Protection from the enemy

I pray my husband will receive the commands and teachings of the Lord, clothing himself with the Lord Jesus Christ, putting on the armor of light and the corrections of discipline as his way to life; I pray these will be a safeguard to his heart against immoral and inappropriate relationships with the opposite sex that prey and seek to destroy him (Proverbs 6:23-24; Romans 13:12-14). Heavenly Father, I pray my husband is sober-minded and alert because his enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking to devour him (1 Peter 5:8). And, that he puts on your protective armor, the full armor of God, so that he may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil (Ephesians 6:11-18).

I pray that my husband will walk humbly and be quick to agree with the Lord about his sins and that he desires and will stand for truth and justice (Psalm 51: 2,6) always tendering a merciful heart toward the voice of the Lord, acknowledging what He requires of my husband (Micah 6:8).

I pray my husband makes the Most High his dwelling place and rest in the shadow of the Almighty for then he will be saved from the enemy’s snare and no harm will overtake him and disaster will not come near his home or workplace. I pray Lord You command Your angels concerning my husband to guard him in all his ways (Psalm 91:1-11). Keep watch over my husband, over his comings and his goings: to and from work, his workplace, his health, his home; protect him from all harm (Psalm 121:7-8). Protect him from violence and oppression, and injustice and mistreatment. I stand in the gap before You O Lord, on behalf of my husband (Ezekiel 22:29-30) asking for a hedge of protection around him, his family, and everywhere he goes (Job 1:10).

May love and faithfulness never leave my husband; bind them around his neck, write them on the tablet of his heart that his name and reputation will be preserved, finding favor with man and in the sight of God (Proverbs 3:3-4). I pray he walks in the ways of good men and keeps to the paths of the righteous, guarding his heart above all things (Proverbs 2:20; 4:23). I pray he uses sound judgement and discernment for this will protect and guard my husband from the perverse and wicked men, the seductive adulteress, and the crooked and devious paths of destruction and death (Proverbs 2:11-18).

Let my beloved O Lord rest secure in You, shielding him all day long and because You love him may he rest between Your shoulders (Deuteronomy 33:12). Deliver him from his enemies who seek to ensnare him, from violent people who want to do him harm. Remind him that You, O Lord, are his Rock; You are his Fortress, his Deliverer; in You he can find refuge; You’re his shield and the horn of his salvation. You are his stronghold (2 Samuel 22:1-3). Praise You, Jesus! It is in Your Name I pray.
