Husband Prayers: Day 14

The Bible is full of verses about our integrity. Take a moment to pray these for all the men God has placed in your life.

14 Praying for His Integrity

Dear Lord, I pray that my husband would be a man of integrity. Honest, Trustworthy, Dependable, Faithful. Help him keep his commitments firm and not renege on his promises (Psalm 15:4), following through on what he says he will do, making his yes be yes and no be no. (Matt 5:37)  

Please keep him from justifying his actions based on what other men say or think. You know his heart. Just because others say it’s ok or the norm doesn’t mean you approve. (Luke 16:15).  

Please fill him with your Spirit and guide him into all truth (John 16:13). If he has sinned in this area, please show him so he can confess and repent of any falsehood in his life. Thank you for your faithfulness to forgive even when he fails. (I John 1:8-9). And Lord, as he walks in integrity, relying on you, please protect him, vindicate him, uphold him, and guide him. (Prov 11:3, 26:1, 25:12)

Matthew 5:37 Let your word be ‘Yes, yes’ or ‘No, no.’ More than this is from the evil one.

Luke 16:15 But Jesus said to them, “You are the ones who justify yourselves in men’s eyes, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly prized among men is utterly detestable in God’s sight.

Ps 15:4  He despises a reprobate, but honors the Lord’s loyal followers. He makes firm commitments and does not renege on his promise.

Proverbs 10:9  The one who conducts himself in integrity will live securely, but the one who behaves perversely will be found out.

Psalm 41:12  As for me, you uphold me because of my integrity; you allow me permanent access to your presence.
Proverbs 20:7 The righteous person behaves in integrity; blessed are his children after him.
John 16:13  But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. For he will not speak on his own authority, but will speak whatever he hears, and will tell you what is to come.

I John 1:8-9  If we say we do not bear the guilt of sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. But if we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous, forgiving us our sins and cleansing us from all unrighteousness.   

Proverbs 3:3-8  Do not let truth and mercy leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.  Then you will find favor and good understanding, in the sight of God and people.  Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding.  Acknowledge him in all your ways, and he will make your paths straight.  Do not be wise in your own estimation; fear the Lord and turn away from evil.  This will bring healing to your body, and refreshment to your inner self

Proverbs 28:6  A poor person who walks in his integrity is better than one who is perverse in his ways even though he is rich.

Proverbs 11:3  The integrity of the upright guides them, but the crookedness of the unfaithful destroys them.

Proverbs 26:1  Vindicate me, O Lord, for I have integrity, and I trust in the Lord without wavering.

Proverbs 25:21 May integrity and godliness protect me, for I rely on you!
