Dear God, neither my husband nor I were saved when we were first married and things were pretty good between us. But now Father God, I have become born again and become a new Christian, a new creation in Christ, and it is causing strife between us.
It grieves me Father, that the love we once shared has become so sour, simply because I have started to trust in the Lord Jesus as my Saviour. My husband thinks I am soppy and is not interested in anything I say about Jesus, and is starting to get quite angry about it.
Please help me Lord. Help me to be strong and help me to grow in my faith and not to give up. Help me to somehow tell my husband of the good news of the gospel of grace. I want him to know that the Lord Christ died for his sins and took the punishment that he deserved, and that He rose again on the third day and broke the power of death in the lives of believers. The gospel is so wonderful and I just long that he comes to faith too.
Please Lord, I know that nothing is impossible for You to do, and I ask that you show my husband the truth. I pray that one day soon he will be saved, like me. I pray this in Jesus' name,
Loving heavenly Father, thank You for saving me, thank You for Jesus. Thank You, for dying for me on the cross and for bringing me into Your family. I love You Lord, and long that my own dear husband would also come to faith in You.
Father, my husband is so disinterested in anything to do with Jesus and being saved. He does not understand the terrible consequences of dying in his sins and of not having Jesus as his Saviour. He thinks it is cute that I am a ‘ saved cutie’ as he calls it, and is quite happy for me to go to church. But Lord, it disturbs me that he is so disinterested.
Convict him, Lord, of his sin and his need for a Saviour. Convict him of the terrible consequences of falling under God’s wrath. Lord, I pray that You would turn his heart to the Lord Jesus and Father, I know that it is a dangerous prayer to pray, but Lord, please do WHATEVER it takes draw my husband into Your arms of forgiveness. In Jesus' name I pray,
Dear Lord, have mercy on my unsaved husband. I pray that he will come to full and free salvation. Have mercy on him Lord, and draw him to Yourself with Your cords of love, I pray. Help him to see the destructive nature of sin, and I pray that he will repent and turn to the cross of Christ.
Give me patience to wait for Your best timing and wisdom so that I know when to speak and when to remain silent about You. Thank You that it is not your will that my husband would perish, and I pray that Your will be done in his life. I ask this in the name of Jesus,
Loving Lord, I wanted to marry my husband so badly, even though I knew that he was not a believer, although I was. I guess my emotions took control of my decisions. But Lord, now that we are married, I long to be a good Christian wife and live the biblical way, in submission to my husband, but it is so hard when he is not a believer.
Lord, I believe You are far bigger than the mistakes that we make and You turn all things together for good to those that love You, and Lord I do love You. Please give my husband a measure of faith, and use my life to bring him to a real understanding of Salvation, and the grace of God, and what the death and resurrection of Jesus really means. Use me to bring my husband to Jesus, not only in what I say but in the way that I live. Lord, would You in Your grace, show me how I can live as a Christian wife when I do not have a believing husband.
Lord, I ask that You would bring him to faith in Christ. Give me the wisdom to know when to talk about Jesus and when to be silent. I would ask You to prevent me from saying too much about Jesus that may cause him to be irritated, but also to give me the wisdom and word to share Jesus when the time is right. Soften his heart I pray, so that he is receptive to the glorious gospel of grace, and bring us both into Your heavenly home one day. Lord, I don’t know how or when You will do this, but I am trusting my husband into Your hands.
I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ,
Dear Lord Jesus, I did not realise the significance of getting married to an unbeliever until we started to have a family. I am so sad that teaching our children about the Creation and Salvation and even the significance of Israel and the falling economy that we are currently hearing about in the news today, is beyond my husbands understanding. But Lord, I desire to bring my children up in the fear of the Lord, and I ache to have my husband involved in teaching them the truths of Scripture.
Lord, I don’t know how, but Lord, I ask that in a wonderful way You would bring my unsaved husband to a saving faith in Jesus, so that together we may bring up our children to know and trust the Lord. Soften my husband’s heart towards the things of God I pray, and I ask that You also protect the hearts and minds of the children from some of the unbiblical views that he has on creation and heaven, which conflict with so much Christian truth.
Forgive me Lord, for being unwise in my choice of marriage partner, but I ask that in Your grace, You would draw by dear husband to trust in Jesus - soon Lord I pray - but Your will and timing be done, not mine. In Jesus' name I pray,
