Prayer for your spouse's unguarded heart, mind, and body, and deliverance from evil and temptation

Proverbs 6:
23For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:
24To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.
25Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids.
26For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adultress will hunt for the precious life.
27Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?
28Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?
29So he that goeth in to his neighbour's wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent.
32But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.

Proverbs 23:
26My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.
27For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit.
28She also lieth in wait as for a prey, and increaseth the transgressors among men.

Prov 5:
10Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours be in the house of a stranger;
22His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.

Prov 7:
7And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,
8Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house,
9In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:
10And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.
11(She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:
18Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.
19For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey:
21With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him.
22He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;
23Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life.
24Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth.
25Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths.
26For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her.
27Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.

Prov 23:
27For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit.
28She also lieth in wait as for a prey, and increaseth the transgressors among men.

Ecclesiastes 7:
26And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose heart is snares and nets, and her hands as bands: whoso pleaseth God shall escape from her; but the sinner shall be taken by her.

Sin has to be confessed and dealt with.
Matthew 5:29
And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

Matthew 10:28
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Romans 6:12
Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.

2 Corinthians 5:10
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

Romans 8:9-11
For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: ...

Prayer:Lord, I do not want my loved one's whole body to be cast into hell because of offense in the body members. Sever wrong relationships from my loved one's soul that have given entrance to the devil to come kill, steal, and destroy. I pray my loved one will no longer allow sin to reign and receive the wages sin which is death.


This little light of mine, I'm going to let it shine. God's Word is that light.
Luke 11:36
If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.

Prayer:Lord, shine Your light in my loved one's body. Your Word is a lamp to the feet, and light into the path of righteousness. I pray for Your Name's sake.


What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
Romans 7:24
O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

Romans 6:6
Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

Prayer:Lord, by Your grace, You are more than able to deliver my loved one from the captivity of sin which reigns in the carnal man. Your spiritual law in Christ Jesus is greater than the law of sin.


Flee temptation (Recall the story of Joseph and Potiphar's wife.)
1 Corinthians 6:13
Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.

1 Corinthians 6:15-17
Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

1 Corinthians 6:16
What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.

1 Corinthians 6:17-19
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

1 Corinthians 6:18-20For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

Husband and wife
1 Corinthians 7:4
The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.

Prayer:Lord may Your Holy Spirit will convict my loved one to flee fornication and adultery.


The body does as says the mouth.
James 3:2
For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.

James 3:6
And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.

Prayer:Lord, I want to speak to my loved one Your words that are spirit and life that will edify and not destroy. Deliver my loved one from a fiery tongue that speaks words that defiles the whole body. Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.


The responsibility of a Christian
1 Corinthians 9:27
But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

Phillippians 1:20
According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.

1 Thessalonians 5:23
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Prayer:Lord, I want to lift up Jesus in my life that my loved one may look up at Him and be healed, like the children of Israel that were bitten by snakes in the wilderness, when they saw the brazen serpent Moses made and put on a pole, they were healed.

As Your child, you give power to bring the body in subjection to You. Be magnified in my body as I take up my cross daily to follow You. Prince of Peace, I pray for my loved one and I that You sanctify us wholly, and that our whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameles unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.


A person is as he thinks.
Proverbs 23:7
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.

My loved one acts this way because of wrong thinking in the heart. There has to be a renewing of the mind according to Your truth, and I pray this heart will be given to you.


The mind without God, is an enemy to God.

Colossians 1:21
And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled

James 4:4
Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

Romans 8:6-8
6For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

My loved one is an enemy because this mind is alienated from You, which explains the wrong behavior. This carnal mind does not obey You nor please You. I pray there will be a reconciliation through Jesus Christ who came to save sinners.


The mind of the lost is blinded.

2 Corinthians 4:3-4
3But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Titus 1:15
Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.

Prayer:My loved one is lost because of blindness to the gospel of Christ. The devil has blinded the mind which has resulted in unbelief. Therefore, nothing is pure, and this mind and conscience is defiled. I pray the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God shines unto my loved one.


The natural man vs. the spirit filled man
Jeremiah 13:23
Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.

1 Corinthians 2:14
But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Prayer:My loved one does not know You, and that's why the behavior is not good and is used to living like this. I pray my loved one will receive spiritual understanding.


The highminded person loves the pleasures of this world, rather than love God.
2 Timothy 3:4
Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Prayer:My faith in You is foolishness to my loved one who is not humble to believe and obey You, and rather rubs shoulders with the world. I pray my loved one will receive Your goodness and repent. You will not turn away a humble and contrite heart.


To change on the outside, the transformation happens in the inside first.
Hebrews 8:10
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:

Philippians 2:5
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

Romans 12:2
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Prayer:Lord, I pray that You will put Your laws in my loved one's mind, and write them in a heart of flesh, that You be the God of my loved one. Give my loved one the mind of Christ and that there be a transformation by the renewing of the mind. Only then, can my loved one be in subjection to Your will.


Either a person is in or out and cannot have it both ways.

James 1:8
A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

Romans 1:28
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

Prayer:I pray my loved one will believe in You with a single mind for stability in the path of righteousness. May my loved one retain the faith according to Your truth which makes a person free, rather than in bondage to sin.


A doubtful, anxious mind, is a worldly mind. The mind that clings to God is a peaceful one.
Luke 12:29-31
29And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.
30For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.
31But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Isaiah 26:3
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Prayer:As for me, Lord, I will not be of a doubtful mind. I'm seeking your kingdom and your righteousness and these things that I ask of you, because I know it is your will that no one perishes but repents, shall be added unto me.

I will not dwell on thoughts the devil wants to plant on my mind, but rather I will trust You to save my loved one. My mind is stayed on Jesus the author and finisher of my faith.

Though I am going through tribulation right now, I will be of good cheer, as the Lord Jesus wants me to be, and I will be in peace, because I have laid all my care upon the One who really cares for me and my loved one, and the only One who is also mighty to save.

I trust in Your tender mercies which endure forever, and I praise You for Your wonderful works in the children of men. I will trust in the name above all names, the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.



Keep thy heart with all diligence;
for out of it are the issues of life.

Proverbs 4:23

A man may know between good and evil, yet he may not know the condition of his own heart.

THE HEART IS MULTI-TASKThe heart thinks; it is the seat of thoughts and intentions. It has imaginations and conceives ideas. The heart reasons and receives understanding.

THE HEART HAS EMOTIONSThe heart is emotional. It rejoices or grieves. It is troubled or in peace. It has a conscience.

The heart is desperately wicked and deceitful. Foolishness is bound in the heart since childhood. This heart has the plague of indwelling evil and is set to do evil. From it proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.

THE DEVIL AND THE HEARTThe devil seizes The Word that falls on the wayside.
He puts ill intentions into the heart, as he did with Judas.
He fills hearts to lie to the Holy Ghost.


Lord, you look on the heart, and you search it.
You ponder it and know it.

WHAT GOD DOES WHEN SOUGHTLORD, Take away the heart of stone from my spouse, and give (him, her) a heart of flesh. Create in (him, her) a clean heart. Yes, Lord, give my spouse a new heart, and turn (his, her) heart to You.

I pray Your love be shed abroad in my spouse's heart by Your Holy Ghost. Shine in (his, her) heart to give light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

PRAY YOUR SPOUSE DO (HIS, HER) PARTLord I pray my spouse give You (his, her) heart. May (he, she) guard (his, her ) heart and hide Your Word in it.

Help my spouse to detect and refuse evil imaginations and thoughts that are contrary to Your Word, and to believe in You with all of (his, her) heart.

I pray my spouse not be double-minded nor have idols before You.

May my spouse keep (his, her) heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life.

LEST YE FALLLord, David, a man after Your own heart fell into sin, but Joseph fled temptation. I pray my spouse doesn't tempt you.
It's better to prevent than lament.

LORD, when You save my spouse, out of the good treasure in (his, her)
heart will proceed that which is good.

Thank You, Lord. In Jesus Name.
