Father's Day Prayer Blitz Day One: Husband

Welcome to Day One of the Father's Day Prayer Blitz! Did you miss the pre-blitz prayer? Read it here!

Each day this week, we will post specific scripture references pertaining to fathers/fatherhood/heavenly Father for us to intentionally focus on in prayer. Let’s HONOR the fathers (biological, step, adoptive, spiritual)  in our lives by standing in the gap for each of them.

Day One Scripture Focus: Husband

That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh. ~Genesis 2:24

Day One Prayer Focus: Husband

Appropriate Biblical Order:
  • Pray for fathers {grandfathers} to release their sons from obligations to family of origin that go above and beyond his obligation to his wife and children.
  • Pray for husband/father to cleave to his wife as God intended.
  • Pray for husbands to leave the ways of his family of origin and embrace new ways of doing things, new traditions, new ways of relating to his wife as God intended.
  • Pray for husbands/fathers to leave behind the unhealthy patterns of behavior inherited or learned from his family of origin and embrace and model healthy behaviors for his children.
  • Pray for children to respect their father and mother's relationship.
  • Pray for ONENESS between father & mother (husband and wife--including previous generations/grands)--and that the father/husband would *desire* oneness with his wife.
  • Pray for fathers to recognize themselves also as husbands and to desire to be a good example of a husband to their children.

Lord Jesus, thank You for showing us Your design for men, husbands and fathers. You are a God of ORDER, not chaos! You ordained the priorities in their lives to become the men You created them to be first and foremost, which leads them to become the husbands you intend them to be as they cling to You and their wives, which prepares them to be the fathers You created them to be. May You be the primarily model of man, husband, and father to the men in our lives. May they pursue You like never before, draw them to You! In Your precious name we pray, AMEN!
