10 things you should pray for your husband as he prays for success in life

Couples do pray for success in life and marriage. However some people do not know that with success comes more issues or things to be aware of.

I once knew a married man who didn't have much at first. He was very humble and was one of the people who helped parked the cars of the people who came for service every Sunday. He was in the traffic unit. 

He must have been very praying for success. Well he got employed in an Oil company and now drove a fancy car and seemingly had more money than before. 

All of a sudden, he went off track. He started seeing someone else and stopped coming to church. His wife couldn't believe it. She never thought her husband would backslide.

Apparently he was not ready for the blessings or he didn't know how to manage the "fame".
Here are 10 things you should pray for your husband when he becomes successful. 
  1. Pray that he does not forget the God that giveth him wealth.  "But you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who is giving you power to make wealth, that He may confirm His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day." Deutoronomy 8.18 
  2. Pray that he should trust in the Lord always. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight."  Proverbs 3:5-6
  3. Pray that he lives in accordance with God’s plan for his life. I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, Ephesians 4:1-2
  4. Pray that he should be generous.  He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse. Proverbs 28:27
  5. Pray that he does not forget his family. 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
  6. Pray that he does not follow the strange woman. "For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil, But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword." Proverbs 5:3-4
  7. Pray that he does not become too busy for the things of God. "For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs." 1 Timothy 6:10
  8. Pray that he remains humble. "The reward for humility and fear of the Lord is riches and honour and Life." Proverbs 22:4
  9. Pray for his health. Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul. 3 John1:2
  10. Pray that he would be surrounded by people who bring him up. "Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm". Proverbs 13:20
  11. Pray for him for discernment in handling his finances. "No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” Luke 16:13
