Bible Texts: Eph.5:25-27, Col.3:19, Rom.5:5, 2Cor.5:17, 1Cor.13:4-8, Gal.4:19, Philp.2:13, Lk.18:1, Mk.9:29, Matt.7:7, Eph.6:12-18, Rev.12:10-11

I welcome you to the 1st day of June, 2024. May goodness and mercy follow you and your family all the days of the new month, in Jesus name. Amen.

Yesterday, we began the journey in discovering who we are in Christ as husbandmen and how prayers can empower the husbandman to flourish as the good and godly man, husband and father.

I pray, in the name of Jesus Christ, that you and I will not lose our place in Christ as the good and godly men. Amen.

Today, let us consider the second area you must focus on in your prayer life. It is praying for yourself as the husband.

As the husband, your responsibilities are to your wife whom God has given to you (Gen.2:18-25, Pro.19:14). The Bible has provided the covenant assignments you have as the husband.

Husbands, love thy wife as Christ has loved the church and gave himself for it (Eph.5:25)

God commands you to love your wife, not as the world loves but as Jesus Christ loves. This is because the ways of the love of Christ is true, unconditional, selfless, sacrificial, pure, faithfulness, hope, patience and enduring while the ways of the world is transactional, selfish and conditional (1Cor.13:4-9).

Now, you must recognize that you will struggle to love your wife as Christ has loved the church without the help of the Person of the Holy Spirit. And the prayer altar is where you access the power to become the good and godly husband (Jn.15:5, Rom.5:5). Your wife, just like you, has so many limitations and weaknesses. It is the love of Christ in you that constrains you from thinking and conducting yourself in a manner that are contrary to God’s commandments.

If you are empowered by the Spirit of love, you manifest the virtues of love as contained in 1st Corinthians chapter 13 and verses 4 to 8. You will also be empowered to pray for your wife to attain the fullness of God’s perfect plans and purposes for her life (Philp.2:13, Gal.4:19).

There is a war against the relationship between the husband and his wife. Principalities, powers and rulers of darkness in high places are waging constant war to destroy the partnership between the husband and his wife in order to destroy the heritage of their children (Mal.2:13-14, Eph.6:12-18). You must not give satan, sin and the world any foothold in your relationship with your wife.

Be renewed daily by the Spirit of love through the weapon of prayers. Hallelujah!


  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, show me in Your word Your perfect will for my life as the husband and teach me how to function as the husband.
  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, let the truth of Your word for my life as the husband dwell richly in my heart.
  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, empower me to live a productive life as the husband.


I am made in the image and likeness of God and I take responsibility to seek fellowship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ and to always do His perfect will as the husband because that is what makes me the good and godly husbandman in Jesus name. Amen.
