Prayer To Become A Godly Man

Philippians 2:6-8

Who, being in very nature God,

did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;

rather, he made himself nothing

by taking the very nature of a servant,

being made in human likeness.

And being found in appearance as a man,

he humbled himself

by becoming obedient to death—

even death on a cross!

Heavenly Father,

Today, I ask that You shower me with Your grace and love. It is a great honor and challenge to become a godly man in the world we live in today.

There is often the temptation to stick to the status quo but You call us above that.

You call us to live a life of purity, selfless love, of humility, and holiness. You call me to become a clearer image of Christ.

In my own strength, I could never undertake such a pursuit. But through the sacrificial death and exemplary life of Christ, You have enabled me to live as Christ lived.

If there is one thing that I ask You to do in my heart, it is to help me to submit to You as Christ did.

Though He was God, He emptied Himself, taking the form of a man, and He humbled Himself, becoming obedient to the point of death on a cross.

Please help me to humble myself before You. Strip away any pride and boasting in self, and make me Your devoted and humble servant.

Help me to pick up my cross daily, and to follow You.

Please remind me of Your mercies that are new, and lead me to seek Your grace and forgiveness in times when I fall short.

Help me to fix my eyes on Christ, and to abide in Him.

May I become like that tree that is firmly planted by the rivers of water, that no matter the season, I bring forth fruit that is worthy of Christ my Lord?

In Jesus’ name, amen.

Prayer For Single Men

1 Timothy 4:12

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young,

but set an example for the believers in speech,

in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity.

Thank You for giving me new life in Christ.

I don’t know where I would be today, if You hadn’t reached out Your arm towards me and saved me from my sin.

It is a wonder that I get to call You Father, and turn to You at any time, for anything.

I ask that You would help me to pursue You, knowing that You will allow the rest to be added according to Your will.

Please help me to guard my heart and mind from the temptations of this world, and from the desires of my flesh.

Remind me that I have an active enemy who is looking to devour me.

But may I be even more aware of Christ, my Victor who has already overcome this world and the enemy.

Help me to put on the armor of God each day, and to stand firm in battle.

May I be an example to those around me in the way that I speak and in my behavior.

Please increase my love, strengthen my faith and help me to walk in purity.

If it is your desire for me to get married one day, I ask that You grant me patience and trust. Please grant me wisdom, and strength.

May my life be a living testimony of Your goodness and grace.

In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.

Prayer For Becoming A Better Husband

Ephesians 5:25

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.”


Thank You for blessing me with my wife.

Your word says that he who finds a wife, finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.

Forgive me for the times when I don’t express my gratitude, and forget that You have given me my wife to love and to cherish.

I cannot think of a greater example of love than the love of Christ for His bride, the church.

I get to live in the reality of Christ’s love that gave Himself up for me.

I confess, it is hard to give myself up.

To give up my desires, or what my flesh wants, and to place my wife’s desires above my own.

In those moments, I ask that You would grant me Your grace. Please give me the strength to humble myself, and deny myself just as Christ did.

May that humility begin through submitting myself to You as my Lord. Though You have given me the role of spiritual leader, You are ultimately our leader.

Please help me to follow You, and to lead my wife to You as well. Help us to become a family who always turns to You for guidance, and who holds firmly to Your word.

Help me to see more clearly the places where I have failed to serve and love my wife.

Help me not to feel discouraged, but rather to take a hold of Your grace that grants me opportunities to grow and change.

Help me to love my wife, as Christ loves the church, and to live in understanding with her.

Help me to be an encouragement to her, and to lead her with love and humility.

In Jesus’ name, amen.

Prayer For Fathers


There is none like You. The fact that I get to look to You not only as my Friend but as my Father astonishes me.

I am so thankful that I get to learn from You, and to walk in Your ways that are right and good.

I know that I will not always do or say the right things as a father, but I ask that You would grant me a heart that is teachable and moldable.

Please guide me as I seek to lead, teach and love my children.

Help me to be intentional about the time that I spend with them, and to make them feel heard and seen.

May my relationship with them be only a reflection of the Father that they have in You.

Help me to lead them in Your truth, and to be an example of what it looks like to follow You, and to serve You.

Please enfold my children in Your love and mercy, and lead them to eternal life in Christ.

Help me to be vulnerable, and not be afraid to apologize when needed, and to show them what humility looks like.

May they grow to love You, and may my relationship with them be a beautiful picture to the world around us of the love that You share for us.

In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.

The greatest thing any man can do for himself, his wife, or his children is to give himself to Christ’s headship in his life.

I hope that these prayers will encourage you to seek God daily in all areas of your life, and that you may see His wonder-working hand in your heart and life.
