At the genesis of marriage, we look forward to a happily ever after with our spouses. But no marriage is a bed of roses because as long as we are on this earth, we will experience challenges not included in the marital union.
“In sickness and in health. For richer for poorer.” — This is the vow you made when you pledged your undying love and loyalty to the man you hold dearly.
As a loving wife, it is your responsibility to uphold your husband and family in prayer at all times, but more so, during difficult times.
Here are seven prayers for your husband in difficult times covering the crucial areas of health, love and work. Make a prayer every day by faith and God will answer you sooner than you expect.
Take heart in whatever you are going through. Your solution is coming in Jesus’ name.
