A Prayer for Your Husband
His Mouth:

Set a watch, O Lord, over his mouth and keep the door of his lips (Ps. 141:3). Grant to him great boldness in testimony (Acts 4:19). Give him Your words so that he may boldly make Jesus known (Eph. 6:19). Give him many chances to share the Good News of Christ and help him tell it lovingly, freely, fully and plainly. Help him to make the most of his opportunities so tell others about victory in Jesus and to be wise in all his contacts. Let his conversation be gracious and wise, for then he will have the right answer for everyone (Col. 4:3-6). Give him Your words so that he may know what to say to all (Is. 50:4). Whatever he does or says, let it be as a representative of the Lord Jesus (Col. 3:17).

Help him not to complain or argue in all that he does (Phil 2:14). Sweeten his words to say only what is good and helpful and what will bless others (Eph 5:4). Cause him to abstain from unclean stories, unholy talk and coarse jokes (Eph. 5:4).

I pray that we will talk to each other about You, quoting psalms and hymns and singing songs, making music in our hearts to You (Ps. 19:14).
