Although we all know that it’s vital to pray about everything in our life, it’s especially crucial to pray for your future spouse and your marriage. Who you marry is the second largest decision you’ll ever make after deciding to follow Jesus because God loves marriage—he created it, after all.
I would start by discussing the desires you already have in your heart as you begin to pray for your future husband. Do you wish to marry someone? Do you have feelings for a particular guy you know or do you like them? How do you currently feel about being single? Are you concerned that God has abandoned you and wondering if you will ever be married?
It is effective to express your feelings, emotions, and anxieties to God in prayer. Although he already knows how you are feeling, when you express your needs and ideas to him in prayer, you are able to sense his calm and are better prepared to pray with greater confidence.
Pray about certain issues that God lays on your heart as you consider asking God to help you find your future husband. The sample prayers for your future husband provided below can serve as a guide, but it’s crucial to focus your prayers on the particular goals and concerns that God has placed on your heart.
Ways to Pray for Your Future Husband
Here are some ways you might begin praying for your future husband to get you started.
- Every morning, during your usual time of prayer, ask God to send you your future husband.
- Every day when you’re driving to work or doing anything around the house, pray for your future husband. For instance, while you’re brushing your teeth or doing the laundry, say a prayer for your good husband.
- Thank God every night before you go to sleep for bringing you a godly husband who will one day be able to sleep next to you.
- Create a prayer notebook and record your daily or weekly prayers for your future husband as guided.

What the Bible Says About Praying for a Husband
Scripture prayers for your husband are quite effective. I’ve heard several women’s testimonials indicating that the time they spent praying for their husbands was incredibly beneficial. God works in marvelous ways, even when we can’t always see them.
Here are some verses to invoke in your prayers for your future husband:
- and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm.” (NIV)
- Colossians 3:5 – “Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires, and greed, which is idolatry.” (NIV).
- Philippians 4:6-7 – “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (NIV).
- Matthew 6:33 – “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” (NIV).
- 1 Corinthians 10:13 – “No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.” (NIV).
Can You Pray for a Specific Person to Become Your Husband?
I would definitely advise that you pray and ask God to confirm your desires if you like someone or have feelings for someone in particular. Pray and ask God for clarity on your heart’s desires and for confirmation that he is the one, rather than praying and asking for this guy to become your husband.
Pray and ask God to confirm your aspirations so that if this man is to be your future husband, God will confirm it and he will be aware that you are his future wife. You should pray and ask God to only give you desires for your future husband, and if this guy is not the one, you should pray and ask God to remove those desires.

Three Things to Consider When Praying for Your Future Husband
1. Pray in a way that is meaningful to you
There isn’t a set way to pray for your future partner. It’s crucial to discover a prayer strategy that works for you because your prayers are between you and God. Go ahead if you want to record your prayers in a prayer notebook.
Find a time or pattern that works for you if you want to designate a time of day to pray for your future spouse and marriage every day. Set aside time each week to purposefully pray for your future husband if you want accountability and want to pray for him with your friends.
Don’t push yourself to pray for your future husband if it hurts too much or if it makes you feel worse about being single after praying. Ask God to show you how often and in what amount to pray for your future husband. God will put it on your heart to ask for prayer for your future husband and your upcoming union.
2. Don’t become obsessed with praying for your future husband
It’s crucial to avoid making prayer for your future marriage or your desire for your future husband an idol, even though God instructs us to come to him in prayer for the desires of our hearts. The Bible commands us to worship only the one true God, and when we place our attention on anybody or anything else, it becomes an idol, which is disobedient to God and unhealthy.
It’s best to give it to God and take a break if you notice that you are beginning to become obsessed with thinking about your future husband or praying for your godly husband. God wants to fulfill your heart’s desires, but he also wants you to value him above everyone and everything in this world.
And when you’re prepared to accept him, he wants to bless you by giving you a good husband. You are actually not prepared to meet your future husband if you start to worry, obsess, or feel frantic to do so.
Not sure if you are thinking too much about your future husband or if you are praying for him? Ask God to reveal to you whether you are beginning to obsess over your future spouse in prayer, and ask a close friend or mentor if they believe you should turn your attention to God instead.
3. Constantly surrender your desires to God
It’s challenging to give up your goals, aspirations, and expectations for your future husband. But make sure you keep giving God your own aspirations while you pray for your godly husband and over particular aspects of his life.
Ask God to grant you his wishes for your future husband in prayer. While we may occasionally believe we know what we desire, God actually understands what we need. And only God is aware of your future husband’s identity.
