There is a procedure of how to pray for your husband to get a job. I will walk you through it and give you a sample prayer at the end.
Before you start praying for your husband to get a job, you need to understand a few things about prayer.
The Power of Praying for your Husband to get a Job
As a wife, God has given you power to pray for your marriage. The Bible tells us that the husband and the wife are one. Because of this, you can pray for your husband and God will count it as if it is your husband that has prayed.
You can take advantage of this principle and pray for your husband to get a job as if you are praying for yourself.
Your husband may be struggling to get a job but your prayer moves God to give your husband a good job.
Capitalize on your Faith
When praying for your husband to get a job, take advantage of the faith you have in God. Your husband may not be close to God as you are but your closeness to God can earn Him a job.
Pray and tell God to fulfill the desires of your heart. The Bible tells us in Psalms 37:4 to delight in the Lord and He will grant us the desires of our hearts.
When you delight in the Lord, God will fulfill your desire for your husband to get a job. God is powerful and nothing is impossible with Him.
Delighting in the Lord starts when you ask God to reveal Himself to you. The more you know Him, the more you will delight in Him. And as you delight in Him, your desires will be fulfilled.
As a wife, your faithfulness to God is your bargaining power. If you are very faithful to God, you can ask for anything for your husband and God will grant it.
The beauty of being faithful to God is that you decide what you want and God will grant it.
Tired of Praying for your Husband to get a Job
It is understandable if you get tired when praying for your husband to get a job. As human beings, sometimes we lose faith and life situations discourage us.
But you should not let discouragement get the better of you. If you have been praying for your husband to get a job for while without results, do the following:
Praise the Name of the Lord
When your prayer for your husband to get a job goes unanswered, lift up your hands and give praise to God. Be like Job in the Bible who praised the Name of the Lord after the devil destroyed all he had and killed his children.
When you praise God despite not receiving answers to your prayers, you plant a seed that guarantees you the answer to your prayer.
Job eventually received double what he lost partly because He praised God when he lost it. Tell God that even if your husband doesn’t get a job, you will praise Him because He has been good to you.
And then go ahead and fulfill that promise. Play praise songs and dance to the Lord. Soak yourself in praises until you forget that you were praying for your husband to get a job.
When God confirms that you are faithful to praise Him despite not receiving the answer to your prayer, He will be moved to grant you your desire.
Change your Prayer
There is a time to search and a time to give up. If you feel you have prayed for your husband to get a job too many times, it is wise to stop.
When you stop, you will know why God was not answering your prayer and you will be motivated to push harder in prayer.
Sometimes we make misplaced prayers and God remains silent. But when we stop praying, God explains to us why He was not answering our prayers.
You may be praying for your husband to get a job but God wants to make your husband a successful businessman. Because of the conflicting intentions, God withholds His plans until when you understand them.
If asking God to give your husband a job is not working, ask Him to explain to you why that is the case. God is willing to explain to you and even tell you what you need to do.
Don’t be afraid to try new approaches to prayer if asking directly for your husband to get a job is not working.
Make a General Prayer
Better still, you can make a general prayer that will allow room for God to carry out His plans even if you don’t know them. Instead of asking God to give your husband a job, you can pray that God provides for your family.
When you ask for provision, God will know what to do to provide for your family. It is designed for the man to be the provider in a home but the original plan was for God to be the provider.
It was after man sinned that God gave him the task of providing for his family. But when you please God with your faith, He can get you back to the original design where He provides.
There is a good reason why the Bible tells us that God is the husband to the widow. Basically, a woman who has lost her husband or a woman whose husband can’t provide can rely on God for provision.
Your husband may not be in a position to get a job but when you pray a general prayer for provision, God will make a way according to His power for you to have provisions. Don’t limit God!
Sample Prayer for your Husband to get a Job
Heavenly Father, I bless your Holy Name. To you belongs all power and might. I have a reason to thank you because you have given me a husband. Today I pray for my husband whom I love that you enable him to get a job. It is my desire to see him employed and earning an income. I look to you for provision and I trust that you shall provide for me and my family through my husband. Praise and glory be to you forever and ever.
