Prayer against spiritual husband. In some cases, a woman may find herself married to a husband with whom she is not able to have a healthy, God-honoring marriage.
This could be because of the man’s sinful habits or negative behaviors that were present before their wedding day and continue after they are married.
Some women who have had these circumstances for some time begin praying about it and ask God for deliverance from this situation.
However, what many do not realize is that sometimes these prayers can go unheard; in most situations like these,
the couple has already been bested by Satan and his forces (Ephesians 6:12), and their prayers will often be met with silence.
It seems as though many Christians believe that when two people get married, the Holy Spirit is immediately in their marriage and all is well.
The truth is that there is no such thing as a Christian marriage enabled by God’s presence; rather, it is the sanctity of the Christ-enabled covenant (1 Corinthians 7:14) that makes a Christian marriage so powerful.
For this reason, many Christians often find themselves in marriages with sinful spouses who do not value what they’re doing and continue making mistakes and putting them in danger spiritually.
Because these problems were present before their wedding day and continue even after they’ve been married for years, some begin to pray about it and ask God to deliver them from these situations.
These prayers are crucial because getting out of a marriage is not an easy task.
However, even if a Christian decides they want to do everything in their power to get out of marriage when the Holy Spirit has no say in the matter (i.e., he’s not there), it can be difficult and discouraging.
Thankfully, God does answer prayers, but different prayers work in different ways and for different purposes.
How do you know that he is a spiritual husband?
Here are three things to consider:
- A physical, sexual, or emotional affair with another person
- Being unfaithful to the wife
- Involvement in pornography, among other signs.
All of those things will break the trust and intimacy of a marriage, but what about something else? In Ephesians 6:12, Paul tells us to “put on the armor of God”.
This armor is a spiritual armor for a spiritual fight. One thing that needs to be included in this armor is a prayer against the enemy.
Spiritual husbands are men who have allowed themselves to get caught up in evil or demonic spirits and given themselves over to them.
This is something that the enemy will try and do to us because he knows that if we give ourselves over, then we can be used for his purposes.
That is why Paul tells us in Ephesians 6:12 to put on our armor so we can stand firm against these attacks from the enemy.
This armor includes prayer through which we fight against this evil using God’s power and authority is given to us by Jesus.
One of Satan’s biggest weapons is deception, and one way he deceives many men today is by making a man think that his sexual desires are normal when they are demonic in nature or appearance.
How to pray against a spiritual husband?
Firstly, do not go to a spiritual husband for advice or help as he is no longer an authority in your life as a Christian.
Secondly, do pray. Prayer brings changes into our lives spiritually and physically. The Bible says that “the effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much” (James 5:16).
Also, the Lord has promised us that those who seek Him will find Him (Proverbs 8:17); so we know He’s there ready and waiting to hear us – all we have to do is call out to Him and He will listen because He cares.
It could be something simple like “Lord, please take care of this situation”; or more complicated like asking God questions such as “Why is this happening?”; or even things that we want to happen such as “Lord, please help me find a job”; or “Please let my marriage last” – it’s all up to you.
It would also help to read the Bible and learn more about God to know how to address Him properly in prayer, for example: use His name YAHWEH (which is often shortened as Jehovah), or Elohim (“God”), or Adonai (“Lord”).
Do not be discouraged if your prayer doesn’t work out the first time around because what matters most is not whether you succeed but that you try your best and keep believing:
don’t give up just because things didn’t turn out the way you thought they would. Just like when you plant a seed, you cannot expect to grow a fruit tree within a day or two – it takes time and patience.
If your husband is not willing to change despite your prayers, do not despair as there’s nothing God can’t handle:
He’s powerful enough to defeat the enemy that we cannot beat with our strength. “The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still” (Exodus 14:14).
The Bible also tells us that no weapon formed against us shall prosper (Isaiah 54:17).
As long as we believe and trust Him with all our hearts, even if we die we will live again (Proverbs 3:5-6), so let us hold on to hope and keep praying.
You can also ask for guidance and wisdom from other Christians, or even get a trusted friend to pray with you so that they may hold you up in faith while you struggle.
“The righteous should choose his friends carefully, for the way of the wicked leads them astray” (Proverbs 12:26).
Sharing our troubles helps us bear the burden together instead of carrying it alone. There is strength in numbers and we must not be ashamed or afraid to seek help when we need it most.
Also, if your spiritual husband causes chaos within your church and community and attempts to turn people against you, do not let him influence everyone around you:
just like yeast spreads through dough causing it to rise, so one evil person can cause the downfall of many (Matthew 16:6).
We need to know who we can trust and be wise in choosing our friends and companions.
The Lord has promised us that those who follow Him will find safety just as children find refuge beneath their parents’ wings (Proverbs 14:26).
If you’ve been praying against the spiritual husband for a long time now without any change, then it may be time to re-evaluate your relationship with God as He would not allow such a situation to take place unless He wants something good out of it – so we must not lose hope or give up.
Take this opportunity to grow spiritually and learn about Him more: renew your mind and your heart so you can better serve His purpose.
“As newborn babes, desire the unadulterated milk of the word, that you may grow thereby” (1st Peter 2:2).
Remember to always speak positively about your husband so as not to incur God’s wrath when we bear false witness or give in to gossip and slander.
“Whoever blesses his neighbor with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, it will be counted a curse to him” (Ecclesiastes 5: 7).
Do not judge nor condemn because we will also stand before God one day and answer for our deeds.
Therefore, let us guard our tongues against cursing others lest we get trapped by their traps – for what is beautiful is easily crushed while crooked things are hard to destroy (Proverbs 25:19).
What if it’s a spiritual husband that you’re parting ways with?
It is not easy to leave your husband if you are involved in any type of spiritual or emotional connection with him.
It takes an act of God to release you from his oppression and control.
Even if he’s involved in pornography, adultery, homosexuality, idolatry, or even witchcraft; the problem is that it doesn’t stop with him—it extends to his family and friends, along with your spirit.
When a person is involved in these types of practices it extends beyond themselves and their behaviors.
Many Christian women are reading this article who have had no contact with their husbands for years or even decades, yet they still struggle to break away from them because Satan has succeeded in keeping them bound.
To get free requires an act of God on your behalf, but it must be coupled with your obedience to His word and His leading.
You cannot rid yourself of him just by praying about it or just by simply using God’s authority over the devil against him—you must take action!
One thing that the enemy hates is for anyone to use God’s name when taking authority over him.
When you bind a devil, rather than commanding him to leave in Jesus’ name, using God’s authority over the devil takes more courage and is much more effective.
Remember to use His full title when taking authority against any demons that may be attacking you:
“In the name of I AM THAT I AM, who gives us our spiritual power, Who lives in all of us by Holy Spirit and by Whose stripes we were healed;
I rebuke Satan and all his cohorts from this woman or man. In Jesus’ Mighty Name.”
You must get free from your husband before you can marry another—you are not free to remarry until he is out of your life according to Matthew 19:9.
If you are divorced simply because you left him, then you cannot remarry unless he dies or willingly divorces you.
When encountering the spiritual husband, you have to lift a standard against them and bound them in Jesus’ name.
You must take authority over everything that has to do with your ex-husband: his friends, his relatives, and even your children if they were fathered by him.
Remember that Satan’s ultimate goal is to kill, steal and destroy—to stop you from carrying on God’s purpose for you.
He will continue to affect your life as long as he lives because he rules through fear, but only as long as fear still has a stronghold in your heart can he maintain his power.
If you have already died to all fear through the Lord Jesus Christ, then he has no place in your life anymore—
he simply cannot do anything to you unless you permit him or allow it. Remember that he is a liar so never trust his every word.
If God brings someone special into your life who treats you right, whom you love and who loves God above all else, then be obedient to His leading for your life—it may not be easy but it will be worth it!
We must be patient while waiting for our soul mates because they won’t always meet our expectations.
When someone falls in love with you, they are falling in love with what you are right now. They are “in love” with your potential—they see the great woman that God has created within you.
It is only when two people spend their lives together day after day that they get to know each other for who they truly are.
The enemy tries to destroy all that God has done for us because he knows that it’s just a matter of time before Christ returns and every knee will bow to Him.
When Satan caused Adam and Eve to sin against God they became spiritually impotent but physically alive—
unable to produce children or have fellowship with the Lord anymore until He sent His Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross so that we can be born again to have His Spirit living in us.
Now that Satan has taken over the kingdom of darkness, he rules through fear because God’s people are unable to rule with Christ until they die to their carnal nature.
That’s why all of this is happening right now—Satan knows his time is almost up, but he wants what you have!
Your faith in God empowers your prayers and faith to work for you. So take authority over anything that tries to steal or destroy your faith in any way—faith is not a feeling it’s acting upon the Word of God when no one else believes!
Jesus’ Name represents full power over Satan so use it against him when confronting spiritual problems.
Remember that Jesus created the spiritual man out of the dust of the earth, so He is more than capable of creating him again.
If God gives you a godly marriage partner then they are on loan to you—they are not yours forever because no one can ever own another person; we simply must make the most of our time together and never stop praying for each other because prayer changes things!
When we find ourselves in desperate situations like this, it’s easy to forget how much God loves us and what great plans He has for our lives if we would only trust Him and believe Him.
The only reason that life seems unbearable right now is that Satan wants you to focus on everything that is wrong with your life but he doesn’t want you thinking about all the good things that God has planned for you.
Don’t ever forget that when one soldier falls, another step up to take his place, and if Satan is going to use people in your life, there are always others who will step up and help carry a load of responsibility instead.
We must never lose sight of what God’s purpose is in all this because He loves us and knows exactly where His hand is on our lives at all times.
The Spirit of Oppression
First off, let us understand the basics of what an ‘oppressive spirit’ is.
Oppression in this context refers to a situation where someone’s life has become dominated by evil spirits which are causing them problems in terms of physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing.
Sometimes oppression is just linked with a demonic attack, but in some cases, it can be more complicated than that – being linked with generational curses or with witchcraft attacks or even satanic ritual abuse carried out on ancestors many generations ago.
The Word speaks clearly about how to handle these situations: “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.
Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it … Pray for us: for we trust we have a good conscience, in all things willing to live honestly.
But I beseech you the rather do this, that I may be restored to you the sooner.” (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24; Hebrews 13:20-21)
As we can see from these Scriptures, God wants us to pray for those whose lives are dominated by evil spirits and He wants us to pray for ourselves too – so that the enemy’s attacks on us will be defeated and so that we can learn about living honestly in Him.
In some cases, oppression is linked with curses or ‘inherited demons’ passed down through generations of ancestors, but often it comes from sexual sins committed in a partner’s life.
People struggle with all sorts of problems including sexual sin, depression, addiction to pornography, alcohol abuse, etc., but often it is just that they are married or in a long term relationship with someone who has unconfessed sinful habits and God’s heart is that they should be restored to wholeness through prayer and repentance in that area.
One of the first things to understand is that it is not necessarily advisable for people who are under serious oppression to go and live with their partners again until there has been repentance on both sides if you are thinking about reconciliation or on the side of the person who caused the problem if you intend to end your relationship.
This may sound harsh but it is not meant to be. The reason for this is that the enemy will almost certainly try to attack you through your partner if he or she has unconfessed sin in their lives, so unless you are very strong yourself you are likely to have problems.
In most situations where a woman wants deliverance from her sinful husband, she needs to understand that God hears all true prayers, even those of deliverance against spiritual husbands who have been bested by Satan and his demons.
The fact is that if this man was able to be converted after praying himself, then there must have been some kind of warfare going on between him and the Holy Spirit even before his conversion.
Therefore, if a Christian woman is being oppressed or attacked by the demons that have bound her husband against God, then it is God who has allowed this to take place because He has a plan for them both.
In most cases, He plans to bring them both into a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ together as they learn from each other and grow spiritually through these difficulties.
God is good. God is love. God is all-knowing and all-powerful, ever-present. He does not fail; He will not give up on you; He will not forsake you; He will always protect you (Psalm 37:28, Psalm 46:1, Matthew 28:20).
“You are of God, little children, and have overcome them because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” –
1 John 4:4 Prayer for deliverance against spiritual husband or any sort of abuse is not an act of weakness or defeat; it’s an act of trust like Job’s example when he said “Though He slays me yet I will trust Him” (Job 13:15).
Prayer is not a magic spell or incantation, you cannot just say the words and expect results.
Prayer is communicating with God, speaking to Him in total honesty about what you need/want/what is going on in your life.
It is not just reciting words or singing songs with no meaning behind them, that’s useless entertainment.
Prayer is powerful because it’s all about the relationship between us and God. When He hears us earnestly seek His help for something.
He will be sure to come through for us. After all, “Nothing shall be impossible unto you” (Matthew 17:20).
