Freebie Friday | April 20

UPDATED! A new version is now available | here |

“In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other’s spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out.”

Ephesians 6:18 (The Message)

Today’s freebie is something I wish I’d found a long time ago.

When Ian and I were first dating, I knew the importance of prayer, but had no idea how to pray for him.

And so I began to ask the Lord to show me how to pray for this man.

Fast forward 5 years, and I came across | this | on Pinterest.

And then I made my own version. A version that is now taped to my mirror, in my journal, and my dashboard.

Whether you’re married, have brothers, or just want to pray for the men in your life, this is such a great reminder of a few of the ways, as women, we can pray for them.

I hope you find this as useful as I do! There are 2 versions, one for us married gals, and one that has been tweaked to make sense for men whom you love, but aren’t married to.

I encourage you to use this as an outline, there are plenty of other ways to pray for the men in your life.

  2. You said you had a version for girls that aren’t married?? Think you could post it, here or on Pinterest, or send it to me?
    I love this by the way, I’m in your initial shoes with my boyfriend, so this is an answer to prayer 🙂

  3. Thanks for the encouraging words, Andrea. It can be a tough phase in a relationship, so I’m glad you’ve found this helpful. If you click on the link to download, both the husband and other version are in the same PDF. I will work on uploading this one to Pinterest as well!

    Thanks for the great post! This is what my boyfriend and I need in our relationship right now. Is there anyway to send a copy of just How to pray for your man? Also, I would love for my boyfriend to have this “guide” in his prayers for me. Is it possible that you could create a version: How to pray for your Wife and your Woman? Thanks so much for this blessing! 🙂

    • Hi Tara, thanks so much for sharing the other prayer plan with me, I love that! Right now, I’m working on creating a version for both husbands and wives, that gives references, but it will definitely take some time, so check back soon and hopefully I will have something similar to these!

    Hi there! Just wondering if you thought if making a prayer for us, women and mothers? Something to pray for ourselves? Maybe about wisdom, prioritizing, etc? 🙂 My husband recently stepped into church ministry and I have found your post so helpful 🙂 Thank you!

  13. Very cool. I’m already praying for my husband in many of these areas, but I see that I’m missing a few. I’m going to look for applicable verses and add them to my Lamplight app stack for my husband.

  14. I just tried to print this and it would not download. The link is broken.

    • Sorry, Symanntha, I don’t know why that is. I’ll fix it as soon as I can.
      Thanks for letting me know!
