40 Prayers for my Husband: His Heart

"The heart is deceitful above all things
and beyond cure.
Who can understand it?"
~Jeremiah 17:9~

"As water reflects a face,
so a man's heart reflects the man."
~Proverbs 27:19~

A deceitful heart makes a deceitful person who walks upon a deceitful road paved with deceitful ways. >>TWEET THIS<<

Today I pray deceit will be far removed from my husband.

Let's join hearts and pray over our husbands together.

Prayer #10. His Heart

Father, thank You that You have given my husband a heart that is teachable. Even when he is unwillingly to change his views or ways, You have not given him a heart of stone, but of flesh, and You, O Lord, have abilities beyond measure to soften his heart, making it pliable to Your will and Your ways. Create in my husband a new heart and a steadfast spirit. (Ps.51:10) 
Teach him Your way so that he will walk in Your truth. Give him an undivided heart; not entertaining both good and evil. (Ps.86:11) A good man brings good things out of the goodness of his heart, and the evil man evil things out of his heart.(Luke 6:45) Let my husband stand firmly and correctly in goodness that overflows from his good heart.
You have said, "I, the Lord, search the heart and examine the mind, to reward a man according to his conduct, according to what his deeds deserve." (Jer.17:9-10) Search his heart, Sweet Jesus. Ever so gently, search his heart. Test him and know his thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in him. Convict him in any areas where he needs to grow more gentle, loving, kind, humble or repentant. Guide him into Your everlasting way.(Ps.139:23-24)
When You test him and the road gets hard, don't let his heart be troubled. Prove Yourself to him so his trust in You may be established, further purifying his heart by faith. (John 14:1; Acts 15:9)
May those who scorn Your name or are far from You, see the good in my husbands heart by his acts of humble service, making You appealing to all. May he find honor and respect in his life, his work, and his relationships due to his good heart.
May he praise You with all his heart and glorify Your name forever. (Ps.86:11) In Jesus' name. Amen.

"Above all else,
guard your heart,
for it is the wellspring of life."
~Proverbs 4:23~
