31 Scriptures To Pray Over Your Spouse

31 Scriptures To Pray Over Your Spouse is a compilation of Scriptures I pray over my husband.

These Scriptures can be used to pray for either your husband or wife, in other words, your spouse.

It doesn’t matter if your spouse is saved or not, these Scriptures are very powerful to pray and speak life over your spouse.

Not long ago a read a quote saying something like this: If you could see the crop your words reveal, will you be more careful with them?

Now I’m going to rephrase the quote: If you could see the crop your prayers reveal, will you persevere and be more diligent with your prayers?

When you put the Living Word Of God on your lips by praying and speaking life over your spouse, in the Name of Jesus Christ His Son, who came so we can have life in abundance, you can be certain of God’s promise in Isaiah 55:11

“So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

It is my prayer that the Holy Spirit will minister to you while you prayerfully read through these Scriptures.

And running water from your own well.

And rejoice with the wife of your youth.”
