Wife life: 3 prayers that changed my marriage
As young wife, I focused on so many wrong areas. I focused on wanting God to change my husband and I missed the changes that needed to happen within me. When I started saying these prayers for my marriage, my heart changed and I became a better wife.
Whether you are a newlywed or have been married for a long time, praying for your marriage and praying for your husband are essential to cultivating a healthy marriage.
When marriage gets tough even when your marriage is doing well, taking time for prayer helps keep our hearts tender toward our husbands.
Instead of my usually written blog, I though I would try something new–a vlog.
I hope you enjoy these marriage prayers and that you would share with others.

How do you pray for your husband?
I am an Army wife and I pray for my husband’s mind. He has been deployed numerous times and I ask God to guard his mind.

Absolutely Faith!!! That is so important.
Love your vlog! Congratulations on your 14th wedding anniversary!

Oh, thank you! Glad you enjoyed it.
That’s great! I should take some of these things to my own marriage. I know sometimes my husband feels bombarded when I need to ask a thousand questions about his day.
Mamie L. PackLynneah
Yes!!!!! Let me know how it works out for you.
I love the vlog! What a great idea! Happy anniversary!

Congratulations on 14 years! Beautiful prayers I will start to say myself. Getting me out of my “prayer rut”.

I do not follow religion or prayers but your advice is great for any relationship. I love what you said about communicating about their day, for husbands and sons. Sometimes I find when I ask they just get annoyed and my husband feels I’m nagging and you’re right, with time they talk on their own.

Thank you for your kind words. I am glad you were able to find this helpful. We mean well when we want them to talk with us, but how we do it actually works against building the very relationships we are trying to build.
Mommy PMamie L. Pack
Brilliant! I could use some training 😂
Mamie L. PackMommy P
Can’t we all 😆
Loved that you did a video. We are very similiar in being communicators constantly and wanting more. You’re right-sometimes it does come off pushy! This video was an eye opener. I’m new to the marriage game and I admire your strength and commitment. Thank you for the inspiration. Prayer goes a long way. I just always prayed for protection and guidance. ❤️Prayers can be answers in all forms- such as a video like this. Thank you!

Oh, I am so glad you found it helpful. Marriage is such a beautiful gift and prayer helps tremendously. I often had to remind myself that I choose us. This thought helps me to remember that I choose reconciliation.
This was great!! Congratulations on your 14 years together. ❤️❤️

Oh, thank you!!!!

Congratulations on 14 years! My husband and I will be celebrating 14 years later this year. I think it’s great that you are sharing how you make marriage work. Or maybe I should say how you let God make it work!

Oh, it is all God Laura for sure. Keeping Him the center of our marriage has made all the difference. Happy early anniversary!
Praying for our husbands is so important. I sometimes forget that I can pray specific prayers for my husband and to pray for him throughout the day. I am trying to do better in that area
Mamie L. Packannemarkey1
You are absolutely correct Anne! Our prayers for our husbands are powerful. I try to remember to use scripture as a guide for my prayers.
This video is so good. So many ways that I am learning to approach God to help Him work with me on how to be a better wife to my husband and give my husband what he really needs. Thank you for this!
Mamie L. Packordinarilyextraordinarymom
Oh, thank you! Going to God with my marriage was/is the best thing I could ever do.
I love that you did a vlog! It was fun and different than the normal blog posts!

Hi Mamie, I just gotta say that I really like you. Your video was beautiful and I love your voice! You speak truth about marriage and it is refreshing in a culture so “self-focused” when it comes to relationships. I admire your faith and how you trust God with your marriage. I believe these prayers are ones that can really enhance our marriage of 7 years which is really struggling right now. Thank you for sharing. Let’s see what God does through your vlog and how many marriages can be impacted by it! Much love, Joy

I loved your vlog, Mamie. These are great prayers, but the 1st one truly hit home with me. I always have tons of questions. Not only for my husband, but for my grown kids as well. And those questions really don’t serve as much as they should. Thank you for the reminder to step back and hear with their body language and to earn that trust that I want them to have. Thank you so much and Happy Anniversary!

Oh, I can relate. We want to connect and sometimes that can make us overbearing.
Moving forward: 3 healthy responses to offense in marriage |
[…] Praying allows us the time to seek God for clarity, peace, and direction. When we pray, we allow our hearts to be open to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. We learn how to lay aside our pride for love. We are led how to dig deeper instead of disconnecting. We clearly see the battle is not with our spouse, but with an enemy who seeks to destroy our homes and our family. Prayer is the way we fight for our marriages. […]

It is so easy to pray for our husband to become the man we want him to be, but instead we need to pray for them to become the man God wants them to be and for us to not be in the way of that journey or process.
