Praying for My Husband
Today we’ll be creating a Praying for My Husband page for your Simple Prayer Journal.
So far, if you are following along in our Simple Prayer Journal process, you have created seven pages for your journal I hope that you are getting comfortable with using them and that they are a help during your prayer time.
In the event that you are not married, but expect to be in the future, you could go ahead and prepare this page but change it to “Praying for My Future Husband”. Although you may not be married yet, God knows the man you will eventually marry and what a blessing it will be for you to begin praying for him now.
And, of course, if you don’t plan on getting married then you can just skip this page in your Simple Prayer Journal.
Praying for My Husband page
Here’s an idea for your Praying for My Husband Page:
Create a starburst mind map. Put one circle in the center of the page (either write his name there or put a picture of him there and if you’re not married yet, just write “Future Spouse”).
Now draw lines out from that circle in all kinds of directions. Make the lines different lengths. Don’t add too many to begin with. You can add as many as you want one by one. I just don’t want you to make it too crowded as you start on the page.
Write a topic that you want to pray about specifically for your husband on each line. You could even add a Bible verse reference below it. I’ve noted a few just to get you started.
Topics such as:
His Love for God
Wisdom from the Lord
His Spiritual Growth 2 Peter 3:18
Protection from temptation John 17:15
His Walk with the Lord
Are there specific issues that your husband faces regularly?
Be sure to add them to your Praying for My Husband page. You can add as many lines out from your starburst as you need. There are no rules. As the Lord lays another issue on your heart, add it to your Praying for My Husband page.

If you are interested in a book on printable created by Jennifer Flanders from Loving Life at Home. I found it a few years ago and still have it in my Simple Prayer Journal.
This is the first time that I’ve mentioned adding other resources to your Simple Prayer Journal, so I’ll share a few ideas for doing this.
How to use other resources in your Simple Prayer Journal
I love finding other resources that help in my prayer time. Our Simple Prayer Journal does not have to be made up of only pages that we created. We can add other resources that inspire us or help us to focus on a specific area during our prayer time.
If it’s a printable, you could just print it and place it in your Simple Prayer Journal with the page you already created.
Or, you could just add a few of the prayer ideas to the page you already have.
As I mentioned before, there are a lot of resources online already with some type of guide for praying for our husbands. I love seeing new ones. Let me know if you have one already that you find helpful and encouraging. It’s fun to find a new one and add some of the ideas to my Praying for My Husband page in my Simple Prayer Journal.
