Prayers for my husband’s patience
Lord God completely humble my husband’s heart, and with a gentleness that reflects Christ, I pray he is patient with me, his sons, and those around him; bearing up with the love of Christ (Ephesians 4:2), through the frustrating times, even when he’s tired and things get tough.
Fill my husband, Lord, with the power of the Holy Spirit, with the knowledge of Your will and with all wisdom and understanding for this will yield patience in my husband (Proverbs 19:11) and so that he may live a life worthy of the Lord and pleasing to Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that my husband will have great endurance and patience and giving joyful thanksgiving (Colossians 1:9-12a).
As my husband is one of God’s chosen, holy and dearly loved by God, I pray he clothes himself with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, bearing up around others with these traits and forgiving just as Christ forgives (Colossians 3:12-13a).
I pray my husband is not hot-tempered which stirs up conflict, but instead, is the one who is patient and calms a quarrel (Proverbs 15:18). Even when my husband thinks he needs to charge a situation like a warrior, it is better he is a patient person, one with self-control because then he will conquer the situation (Proverbs 16:32).
I know it is frustrating for my husband when he does what is right and good and yet those who live in unrighteousness and do evil are rewarded for their sins. I pray my husband be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him and that he does not fret when people succeed in their ways and carry out their wicked schemes (Psalm 37:7) because through all this a patient endurance is being developed in my husband (2 Corinthians 1:6). Thus, I pray, he be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near (James 5:8).
