Husband Prayers: Day 12

For the month of January, we are praying scripture for our husbands each day. Join us now on day 12.

Day 12: Praying for His Protection

Lord, I pray that my husband will dwell in the secret place of the Most High, under Your shadow, our Almighty God. Be his refuge and fortress. I trust you for this.  (Ps 91:1-2)  Be his rock, his strength, his shield, and his stronghold. Save him from his enemies.  (Ps 18:2,3)  

Lord, there are so many ways that he is attacked throughout his day – his mind, his plans, his actions. In his time of trouble, cover him and protect him (Ps 27:5). Please show him your lovingkindness, Oh Lord, and save him from those rising up against him. Keep him as the apple of your eye, and hide him under the shadow of your wing. (Ps 17:7,8). Even when he is confronted with death, I know we have no need to fear because you are with us (Ps 23:4). Thank you for being the one we can turn to in our time of need.

Psalm 139:1-10
 1 O LORD, you have searched me
       and you know me.
 2 You know when I sit and when I rise;
       you perceive my thoughts from afar.
 3 You discern my going out and my lying down;
       you are familiar with all my ways.
 4 Before a word is on my tongue
       you know it completely, O LORD.
 5 You hem me in—behind and before;
       you have laid your hand upon me.
 6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
       too lofty for me to attain.
 7 Where can I go from your Spirit?
       Where can I flee from your presence?
 8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
       if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
 9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
       if I settle on the far side of the sea,
 10 even there your hand will guide me,
       your right hand will hold me fast.
