Prayer For the Men In Our Lives

Join us for prayer for men all over the world.  Although our EmpowerMoments are for and by women, we still want to lift up the men in our everyday lives:  brothers, uncles, fathers, godfathers, cousins, husbands, pastors, etc.

Dear Daddy,

I come before You with a sincere heart, offering up a prayer for the men in our everyday lives.  You know that I grew up without ever meeting or knowing my earthly father so I am trusting in the Holy Spirit to help me pray Your very heart.  I thank You personally for filling that void of not having my earthly father present in my life.  Daddy, I thank You for being the greatest, incomparable father.  No one can ever compare to You.  You are a father to the fatherless and You deserve much respect and honor.  You paid the ultimate price for me to come into Your family and share an inheritance with Your great and awesome Son.  Thank You Jesus for demonstrating what a man of God truly is and I pray that the men of God will take up their cross and follow You.  I pray that they will aspire to be more like You every day and that they influence and lead the boys and the men of the world that they come in contact with every day towards the Word of God and a Godly lifestyle.  I pray that every man that does not know You as their Lord and Savior will hear Your Word and receive Your truth for faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.  I pray that You draw these men close to You and that they we will be the men of God You have destined for them to be.  

God, I speak the spirit of excellence over our men’s lives whether that man be a husband, father, cousin, brother, friend, pastor, stepfather, son, politician, rich man or poor, etc., and the spirit of integrity over their lives.  I pray that they exude the faithfulness of Daniel, the integrity of Joseph, a heart after Your very own heart like David, the courage of Joshua, the leadership and intercession for others of Moses, the devotion of Paul, the compassion and humility of You Jesus.  I pray that You search their hearts and reveal anything that may not be of You and that they receive Your cleansing and discipline with humility and patience.  Help them to be good stewards over that which You have entrusted to them.  

Help the husbands to love their wives as they love themselves.  Help them to love their wives as You love the Church.  Help the grandfathers deposit wisdom, truth and love into their grandchildren.  A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, but the sinner’s wealth is laid up for the righteous. (Proverbs 13:22 ESV)  Help the fathers discipline their children with compassion, consistency and authority.  And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. (Ephesians 6:4 KJV)  Help the pastors shepherd Your flock with care, never neglecting Your Word for themselves and the members You have entrusted to each of them. 

Give each Head-of-their-Households wisdom, courage and help them to trust in You for direction and guidance for their very own lives and their family’s lives.  Perfect their love walk, heal their emotional wounds, restore broken and estranged relationships between any father desiring a right relationship with their children, and renew their minds to have the mindset and views of Christ.  Daddy, I also pray that You give them resources to provide for their families, creative, Godly ideas for businesses, and that You strategically place them with the right companies to not only earn an honest living but to minister to and be ministered to.  I release in Jesus’ name, Your favor upon their lives as they strive to keep Your commandments and put You first in their lives.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

Ladies, I EMPOWER you to pray without ceasing.  Lift up others as well as yourself and your family. But, remember our men need prayer and encouragement too.  Instead of dissing them, complaining about them or reminding them of their shortcomings, pray for them earnestly!  They have a great responsibility and we all have sinned and fallen short.
