15 Awesome Prayers for Men

15 Awesome Prayers for Men

Men who are husbands, fathers, brothers, and uncles are saddled with enormous responsibilities that are insurmountable without the help of God.

Being the head of families, men indeed need prayers for courage, wisdom, and patience to provide stability and direction to our dependants and those we lead.

Our capacity to provide even the basic needs of shelter, food, clothing, and education for our families has never been severely challenged by economic vagaries as being presently witnessed globally; hence, the need for urgent, effectual, and fervent prayer intercessions for men.

It’s undeniably true that the pressure of fulfilling our social, economic, and leadership obligations weighs heavily on the health of most of us, and as believers, the only reliable source of help is God. To that effect, I have provided prayers for men in this article.

Here are 15 Awesome Prayers for Men.


  1. Prayer for Good Men.

Proverbs 12:2 – Good people obtain favor from the LORD, but he condemns those who devise wicked schemes. (NIV)

Heavenly Father, reward every good man out there according to their goodness and encourage them to continue to do good. I pray that you make them flourish like the palm tree, and may their children follow after their footsteps.

Abba Father, may your mighty hands uphold them in all their ways and grant them favor daily. Prolong the lives of all men who Heaven considers good. Cause them to dwell in safety at all times; direct their paths, and order their steps according to your word.

Thank you, Lord, for answering this prayer.

In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

  1. Prayer for Hard-working Men.

Proverbs 22:29 – Do you see someone skilled in their work? They will serve before kings; they will not serve before officials of low rank. (NIV)

Gracious God, I pray for your blessings upon those men from around the world who are diligent.

I beseech you to crown all their efforts with success; Father God, may they see and be satisfied with the reward of their labors. I ask for an increase in their strength and wisdom. Let your favor be upon them to prosper the works of their hands.

Lord, may they not labor in vain for others to rip the fruits of their labors. Most importantly, imbue them with wisdom so that they will not dissipate their energy wrongly, and may they not depend on their own strength but you who graciously rewards the laborer.

In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

  1. Prayer for Men of God.

Colossians 4:3 – And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. (NIV)

Our Father in Heaven, I pray for boldness and an open door of ministry for your servants from all over the world.

Give effect to your word in their mouths and let none of their words fall to the ground as it was said of Samuel. Prosper and expand their ministries and cause Your countenance to shine upon them.

Lord, may you protect them and all their family members from the wiles of the wicked and keep them in good health always.

Above all, make their lives examples of holiness and righteousness as they practice what they preach.

In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray, Amen.

Our Dear Father in Heaven, may you show mercy to these men who are unfaithful to their spouses. Deliver them from the path of destruction and folly.

Merciful God, may they repent of their sinful lifestyles and come back to you so they will escape your judgment. Open his eyes, Oh Lord, to realize that they are captives of Satan whose intent is to destroy them.

Please forgive them, father, and accept them as they repent and return like the prodigal son.

Above all, may their spouses forgive them also as they turn a new leaf.

In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Heavenly Father, hallowed be your name; you are always pleased by faithfulness. Thank you for upholding the lives of all of your children whom you have placed as head in homes.

It’s by your grace that they have remained faithful. Therefore, I ask that you continue to help them, for you said it’s good in stewardship that a man is found faithful.

So, again, I ask that you reward their faithfulness with your blessings and cause them to rejoice; and be joyful in all things and at all times.

Above everything else, may you bless their children; make them your sure delight and generations of faithful people.

Lord, thank you immensely also for giving us this befitting and invaluable position in Christ Jesus. Help us to draw strength and inspiration from Christ and follow the perfect examples He provided.

Dear God, may our family members honor and co-operate with us as we lead, and may you provide everything we need to fulfill our responsibilities.

Thank you for answering these prayers.

In Jesus Christ’s name, I pray, Amen.

When there is a man to pray, God always answers. The truth is, prayer will carry a man’s difficulties away; prayer will make a man cease from sin; it can also do so much more than we will ever imagine.

The above fifteen prayers for men are nowhere exhaustive but a clarion call to always remember the men in your life in your prayers. Indeed, the saying that uneasy lies the head that wear the crown aptly lends itself to the need to lift the male folks in prayers.

A more godly and humane family, society, and country can be achieved with our hands lifted and our knees on the ground in prayers.
