Prayer for a Godly Husband and Father

Lord thank You for blessing my husband because he doesn’t walk in the counsel of the ungodly, or stand in the way of sinners, or sit in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in Your law Lord; and he thinks of You day and night. He is like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth his fruit in his season; his leaf will not wither; and whatsoever he does will prosper.
    Lord, You are his shield, his glory, and his only hope. You alone can lift his head. He cries out to You Lord, and You hear him from Your Temple.  He lays down and sleeps in peace and wakes up safely, for You always watch over him. 
    He rejoices because he puts his trust in You Father. He shouts for joy because You are defending him. You fill all who love You with Your happiness. Thank You for blessing my godly husband, Lord; for protecting him with Your shield of love.
    He listens to Your voice and You pour out Your spirit of wisdom upon him and make him wise. You send Your good Spirit to instruct him, and You always provide bread from heaven and water for his thirst. 
    His words are wise to his family because they are from You Father, telling of Your wise plan to bring us into the glories of heaven. You Lord are his example, his mentor, his teacher, his everything.  Thank You for giving us such a wonderful man that listens to Your voice.
