prayer-for-husbands-week-6“Dear Lord, we bless You, we praise You, we honor You and we thank You because You are such an awesome God. There is none like You in all the earth. We bless You for Your sovereignty because You are the God Who knows all; You are the God Who sees all; You are the God Who is all-powerful and is ever-present. We bless You even now, because You, God, are such an awesome God. We thank You for giving us the opportunity, God, to be Your children. We bless You for blessing us with a Father Who is the ultimate Father. We thank You that You are Father of provision; we thank You that You are Father of protection, that there is no one, God, who can do for us like You can do for us. We thank You even now that Your care for us, God, is greater than any love, it’s greater than any concern, it’s greater than caring that any man, God, could ever give us, and we thank You for making Yourself an example of fatherhood in the earth. We bless You even now, God, that You have given our spouses and You have given our intended spouses, God, Yourself as the model to pattern themselves after. Lord, we thank You even now, that as the ultimate Father You are showing Yourself as kind, as the ultimate Father You’re showing Yourself as good, as the ultimate Father You’re showing Yourself as gracious, and as the ultimate Father, You are showing each and every one of us what it means to be a good father. We bless You, God, that in providing Yourself as an example, that God, You are negating and voiding every bad example that we have been exposed to. We thank You even now that those of us who grew up without fathers physically in the homes, God, You are manifesting Your presence in such a way that we know what it is to have a loving father who is present.  We thank You even now, God, for those of us who grew up in homes where the fathers live there, but they were not mentally and spiritually present and impactful. God, we thank You, that You are manifesting Yourself in the lives of those of us who need that revelation, God, so that we can see You as the Father Who is ever present, that we can see You, Who is the Father Who is our spiritual covering. We bless You even now, God, in the Name of Jesus, for giving us Yourself as the ultimate example. We thank You, God, that our husbands and our intended husbands have the ability to look at You and model their behavior after You, to pattern themselves after You, God, as a good father. We thank You even now, that You’re giving them a heart, God, to see You as Father so that they will have a desire, God, to pattern and repeat Your behaviors and Your characteristics as a father. We thank You even now God, that You’re giving them the identity of father, You’re defining for them what true fatherhood resembles. We thank You, God, that in giving them that example, You are giving them a true revelation of who You’ve called them to be. We thank You even now, God, that according to Your word, that You are giving Yourself as a father to them, that You are giving them instruction, that You are giving them direction, that You are giving them guidance. They don’t have many fathers, God, but they do have You – and You love them with an unconditional and an undying love that will continue to be a guide, that will continue to give direction, that will continue to lead them along the way that they need to go so that they may be good and true examples to everyone who’s looking to them in that father figure role.  We bless You even now God for giving the fathers what they need to be able to provide for their families. You know that the heart of the father is to make available the resources that are needed for the family to be able to be successful in the earth.  We bless You even now, God, for giving each and every one of our spouses and our intended spouses, God, You’ giving them the ability to provide; You’re giving them the desire to provide, and You’re setting them up in such a way, God, that as they provide it is adding to the family and not taking away. We bless You even now God, in the Name of Jesus, that as they give their service, God, to be able to produce provision for their families, God, that You’re making them aware of the importance and the vitality of having a presence in the home. Let them not be workaholics, God, but cancel that spirit in each and every one of them in the Name of Jesus. Give them a desire to spend time with their children, give them the desire to spend quality time with their children. God, give them the desire to look for ways to carve out time and to look for activities to spend that time with their children doing things that will be productive, not just for the family God, but be construction for their upbringing so that the children will be able to grow and to mature as You have ordained for them to grow and to mature and to develop.  We thank You even now God, that You’re giving them everything they need so that they can be good fathers – You’re giving them an eye to see, so that they will be able to look at their children and recognize them as their children, but also God as Your children. You’re giving them ears to hear, God, that they will have ears to listen to what the children are saying, God and to hear their hearts, and an understanding heart to be able to know what that child is saying, what that child is feeling, what that child is experiencing – even if they’re speaking, not with words, but in body language, God, in behaviors.  Give them an ear to hear what their children are saying. We bless You even now God, that You’re giving them ready hands to share with their children, to be able to partake with them in fun activities, to be able to talk with them and entertain and engage with them. God, we bless You even now for developing relationships, right relationships, between fathers and their children. We thank You that You are connecting their hearts even as You’re connecting their spirits and we bless You even now that as fathers and children yield themselves to You, God-the ultimate Father, that it will manifest a right relationship between earthly fathers and earthly sons. God we speak even now to those spouses and those intended spouses, God, that don’t have earthly children, God, but they have spiritual children in the earth. We ask even now that You continue to pour into them what they need so they can be the spiritual providers for their spiritual children, so that they can give the guidance, and the leading, and the direction, and the instruction that those spiritual children need. We thank You even now God, that You are giving our spouses and our intended spouses, God, the desire t mentor like never before; that they want to take what You’ve placed inside of them and share it with others, God, so that they, like Paul and Timothy, can mentor men to be Godly men who follow You, who follow Your word and who have a heart to reach out to others, God, and to make disciples out of others. We bless You, God, for being a blessing to our husbands and to our intended husbands. We thank You, God, that as You continue to develop them as a father that You’re developing them into fathers, and that they’re able God, through Your spirit, to develop young men into fatherhood. We thank You even now that the spirit of absence, God, is canceled in the Name of Jesus, that You are creating them in such a way that they have a desire to cover, that they have a desire to nurture, that they have a desire to direct and instruct, that they have a desire to help to develop men children, God, into fathers. We bless You even now that those who are ordained to be earthly fathers will be good fathers who will have a heart after You, God, that will want to take care of their children – they won’t be delinquent, they won’t be deficient, God, they will know that You are their source and that they are vessels to provide the resource. We bless You even now, God, in the Name of Jesus, for giving them everything they need so that they can be consistently, God, following after Your heart and fulfilling Your will as they speak Your word. We bless You even now that You’re giving them over to good works, to do things in the earth that will cause men to see those good works and glorify You in heaven. We bless You that You’re causing them to be good men of God, that they are men who are sincere, they are men who are not corrupt, that they are men who are found with sound speech, that they, God, speak Your word with a level of authority because they have spent quality time with You, as their father, pouring into them. We bless You even now God, that as You develop them into good and great and exceedingly great fathers, God, we bless You that You’re giving us as a support system, God, to encourage them as fathers; that You’re giving us, God, a spirit to uplift them in their role of fatherhood; that we’re supporting them as fathers to children, that we’re supporting them as spiritual fathers to spiritual children and we’re supporting them, God, in the things that they are doing in the earth to mentor and develop other young men so that they, too, can become fathers. We bless You, God, for blessing us with Godly men who have the spirit of fatherhood on their lives; and that they, God, have a desire to follow after You and let Your pattern become a pattern in their lives.  We bless You and we praise You for giving us, God, men that are men after Your own heart, God, that are seeking You diligently and are seeking You consistently, and they’re seeking You sincerely, God, because they have a yearning for You, they have a hunger for Your word, and they thirst after Your Spirit. We bless You even now for blessing us with Godly men with the spirit of fatherhood. We thank You and we praise You as we celebrate them. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!”
