Prayer for Your Husband's Fatherhood

Here is a prayer from the book, "The Power of a Praying Wife," for your husband as the father of your children. This is a prayer I feel voices the desires of my heart.

Lord, I pray that my husband will inspire his children to honor him as their father so that their lives will be long and blessed. May the spiritual inheritance he passes on to them be one rich in the fullness of Your Holy Spirit. Enable him to model clearly a walk of submission to Your laws.

May he delight in his children and long to grow them up in Your way. Help him not to be noncommunicative, passive, critical, weak, uninterested, neglectful, undependable, or uninvolved.

Make him, instead, the kind of father who is interested, affectionate, involved, strong, consistent, dependable, verbally communicative, understanding, and patient. Being a good father is something he wants very much. I pray You would give him that desire of his heart.

DH really gives time and priority to his children. Whether he takes them to Disneyland or just hands out the wii remotes so they can play Super Mario together, he makes sure he is able to spend time with them. I feel so blessed to have a husband who is very much involved with his children.
