50+ Bible Verses to Pray Over Your Husband

How do you pray for the people and relationships in your life? We pray over our marriage every night and we each pray for each other, but these are regular prayers with our own words. Nothing wrong with that at all, but do you ever pray using scripture?

I searched and searched and while there are hundreds, if not thousands of verses you can use as prayers, I wanted to pull out a manageable number. I started with about twenty verses but as I searched I came across more and more that really spoke to me and I knew I needed to expand my list. As I wrote each verse as a prayer I inserted Micah’s name and could feel the power these prayers can have. God’s Word is living and active – it’s no wonder I could sense the Spirit moving in me!

How to create an evening routine to set your morning up for success

If there is one thing our mornings have taught me it’s that a good morning will always begin the night before. It’s nearly impossible to have a successful morning if you don’t do anything to prep ahead of time. It doesn’t need to be anything extensive or take lots of extra time.
