Recently, I was speaking to a woman who told me that she is struggling with anxiety. She said that her husband had left for the Navy and she worries about him all of the time.
As I talked with her, it became clear that this wasn’t just because he’s in danger in an unstable environment or even because he might be getting deployed soon. It was simply being apart from him without knowing when they will see each other again.
Her fears were rooted in his safety and security – which are two things we have some beautiful prayers for. Here are a selection of prayers for your husband’s protection.
Some are shorter, so you can use them as a daily prayer, or some are a little longer for more focused requests. You may want to add one or two of these prayers into your own personal list of prayers for your family, if your kids want to pray at the same time.

Even though our husbands may feel they don’t need “protecting” as they value their show of strength, they do – and you can pray for this. Please share this with a friend who needs prayers today!
