Prayers for you, my love.

I have been praying for my husband for years now.  

Things like: 
Lord, I pray for my future husband, wherever he may be.  
I pray that he is well, and that you are preparing his heart for me.

Ya know... the usual things like that.  All good things.  Prayers that need to be prayed.

This week, though... I got a little more specific.

Lord God, I pray for my husband.  I pray that you will continue to prepare his heart for mine.  I ask that you will keep him safe and healthy.  I pray for what is on his heart.  Those intentions so deep, that only You know them.  I pray that he is happy.  I pray for his job.  I pray for his family.  I pray they, too, are healthy and happy.  I pray that he is able to spend time with them.

But, mostly, my God, I pray that he loves and adores You.  I pray that he rests his heart in Yours.  And, I pray that I can be the woman you call me to be to love him wholly and completely.

I have no idea when my husband will walk into my life, only the Lord does.  But, by praying these simple, yet really important, prayers for him, he is real.  He is out there.  And, he will be my beloved.

So, I pray for you, my love.
Always.

  2. I have to say, that one of the many things I would change about my years before marriage was how seriously I took the call to prayer for my future spouse. Being married now, I receive some comfort knowing that I had prayed for Jacob in the years leading up to the beginning of our relationship and marriage; however, now knowing some of the struggles and trials he dealt with as a young man, I really wish I had been more dedicated to this. What comfort I would receive if I had known I had been better about praying for him. Keep it up, definitely. Besides, prayers never ever go to waste.

  5. Beautiful prayer. I never thought of praying for a future husband, just the ability to recognize the man God sends for me.
