I firmly believe that the most loving (and romantic) thing you can do for your spouse is to pray for them, and since February 14th is a day set aside to celebrate love, I want to post specific Scriptures that correlate well with Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day Prayers for Your Marriage
I pray that my husband would love me as Jacob loved Rachel (Genesis 29:20).
I pray that my husband would set me as a seal on his heart (Song of Solomon 8:6).
I pray that my husband would love me as he loves himself and that I will respect him (Ephesians 5:33).
I pray that the Lord would bind my husband and me in perfect unity through love (Colossians 3:14).
I pray that my husband and I will be patient and kind. That we will not be envious, boastful, proud, rude, or self-seeking. Help us not to be easily angered or keep any record of wrongs. May we not delight in evil, but rejoice with the truth. May we always protect, always trust, always hope, and always persevere (1 Corinthians 13:4-7).
Additional Prayer Resources:
I am called to offer wives authenticity rather than advice, and the honest truth is that my marriage suffers when I’m not in prayer for Jason. Since I grow restless with anything too repetitive, praying different Scripture verses over my husband every day keeps my prayer life active. I desire this ministry to equip and encourage you to pray fervently for your husband through free resources such as Pray-Day Thursday, the 30-Day Prayer Challenge, and the printable prayer calendar (updated monthly and available to all blog subscribers). Likewise, the products I sell have the same goal in mind: to encourage you to fight for your husband on your knees. If you haven’t yet done so, check out the newly added Darbydugger.com Store where you can purchase For the Love of Our Husbands: 52 Devotions for Wives and Prayer for the Men They Love and a “Praying for my Husband” leather bracelet.
And if for some reason Valentine’s Day is difficult for you, please know I’m praying for you. Last year I wrote an article on when Valentine’s Day disappoints because I know it can be a struggle sometimes. Let’s choose to remember that while human love can be fun to celebrate, the only reason any of us loves at all is because He first loved us. If nothing else, we can cling to and celebrate being loved by the Creator of the World.
Happy Love Day!
