10 Verses to Pray for Your Marriage

Let’s spend the month of February praying for our husbands and our marriages! {Or better yet, let’s use these verses year round!}

“Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labor:
If either of them falls down,
one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
and has no one to help them up.
Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

Praying Wives

One of the best ways to keep our marriages strong is to be PRAYING WIVES. Who will join me in spending the month of February praying for your spouse?

10 Verses to Pray for Your Marriage

1. Joshua 1:9 “ Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” {Lord, make us STRONG for YOU.}

2. Proverbs 24:3-4 “By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.” {Lord, may our homes be built on YOUR WISDOM.} 

3. Psalm 1:1-3 “Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lordand who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—whatever they do prospers.” {Lord, may our delight be in YOU, may we meditate on Your law day and night. When we do so, our marriage and our family will be like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields FRUIT in its season and whose leaf does not wither.}

4. Psalm 51:10 “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.” {Lord, create in both of us a pure heart, seeking You first in all things.} 

5. Song of Solomon 4:10 “How delightful is your love, my sister, my bride! How much more pleasing is your love than wine, and the fragrance of your perfume more than any spice!” {May we delight in our love for one another.}

6. Isaiah 62:5 “As a young man marries a young woman, so will your Builder marry you; as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you.” {May we rejoice over one another and in turn, rest in the knowledge that You, God, rejoice over us as your children.}

7. 1 Corinthians 14:4-8  “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. “ {Lord, give us YOUR kind of love for our spouse and for our families. Grow us in patience, kindness, honor, service, and may we never keep a record of wrongs. May our love never fail because it is Your love in us.}

8. Ephesians 5:21-33 “Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— for we are members of his body. “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.” {Lord, may we joyfully submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. May we love like Jesus.}

9. Philippians 2:3-7 “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.” {Lord, help us to not do anything out of selfish ambition. Give us humble hearts toward one another, not looking to our own interests, but to the interests of our spouse. Give us the mind of Christ.}

10. Colossians 3:13-14 “For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdomof the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” {Lord, may we never forget that YOU rescued US from the dominion of darkness. May we show that same forgiveness to our spouse!}

    1. My best marriage tip is to out serve each other. Don’t keep track of all the things you do. But if it does get out of balance be sure to communicate and come up with a plan to make sure the other is helping. I get where I don’t like to ask or say something but that is really all my husband needs – a gentle reminder.

  1. Connect daily and treat each other like a guest in your home. We often treat houseguests better than members of our family. That needs to change!

  2. I like and enjoy reading the prayer information the you post. I am single and would like to know if there is a way that some of the prayers can be changed for a single person, and incorporate prayer for members of my family. I have no children of my own just nieces and nephews.

  3. Your website and printables have been such a blessing to me in so many ways. Personally they have been helpful but I have also been able to direct other women here and the blessings have been multiplied! Thank you so very much.

  4. My husband and have had some heavy circumstances thrown at us these last couple of years. We’ve made it through and these verses will help us keep going together. Thank you.

  5. I think the first scripture posted is referring to Joshua 1:9 instead of Jeremiah 1:9. Just noticed it because Joshua 1:9 is one of my favs and I know it by heart. Thanks for the blog and for the emails. They help to keep me in the Word daily. God bless you!!

  6. This one is my very favorite: Joshua 1:9 “ Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” – especially right now as we are preparing to move 1,000 miles north. It is a scary time but this verse reminds me that God will be with us — with me — always, no matter where we go… and even if my husband and I have to live separately temporarily while he starts the new job and I wait for the house to sell.
