10 Areas of Your Husband’s Life to Pray against Satanic Attack

  • Cindi McMenamin Author

1. His Drive for Success

Most men want to feel successful and do well in their careers, but some take it too far and become obsessed with climbing the corporate ladder to the harm of family and friends. This is the lure of status, prestige, and power. The world will tell him this is important and this is where he finds his value and significance. 

Pray that your husband clearly sees his worth and significance in Christ, not in the accolades from the workplace or an area in which he excels. Ask God to press upon him to want to succeed as a man of God, and to realize he will be held accountable before God not for how many hours he put into the office but for how he invested in what God gave him (his wife, family, and talents to serve the body of Christ). 

Lord, cultivate in my husband a drive and desire to serve You more than any other person or thing. Close his ears to how the world around him defines success and whisper to Him how You define it – to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with his God (Micah 6:8).
