I also know that He may still be working on my future husband.
God sees the whole picture and only He knows when I'm truly ready. And who knows, my future husband may be as stubborn as I was a few years back...But I'm patient and have faith.
I can't step into my future husbands shoes and make the right decisions for him, but I can pray for him everyday as he battles all of Satan's attacks to bring him down and prevent him from growing closer to God.
And the sooner I start praying, the better it it. Which is why I feel it's good and important to pray for him, long before we meet.
By praying for him I'm joining him in battle to help him become the godly man he can and should be.
Lord I pray he loves me deeply. I pray that He places me second in his life after You.
Lord I pray he chooses his friends wisely. I pray that You bring him friends who will encourage and remind him of his accountability before You. I pray that they do not lead him to sin, but rather lead him to good things that bring glory to You.
1 Corinthians: 6:19-20
Lord I pray that he will choose a healthy, God-honoring lifestyle. I pray that stays active and eats healthy, not treating body like it's disposable, so that he may better serve You. I pray that he does not become addicted to questionable habits or hobbies.
A godly Man
Lord I pray he grows from a christian guy and becomes a godly man. I pray he models his life after Christ and strong men of faith. I pray that he is physically, emotionally, mentally, socially, and especially spiritually strong.
A man of Patience
Lord I pray that he becomes a man of patience. I pray that he will not give in to anger, but will allow You to calm him so he doesn't say something he regrets.
Trust in the Lord
Lord I pray that he turns to You in times of great trials. I pray that he, finds peace in You, and submits to Your timing.
Closeness to his Family
Lord though I pray that he is close to his family. I also pray that if his family is doing more harm than good, if they are bringing him down spiritually and coming between his relationship with You; I pray you guide him to break the bonds.
1 Timothy 2:8
A Man of Prayer
Lord I pray he will be a man of prayer. I pray he seeks You not only in good times but also in bad. I pray that he will pursue You in purposeful quiet times.
A man of Forgiveness
Lord I pray that he practices forgiveness in all his relationships. I pray he lets go of resentment and grudges and that he notices and lets go when he is becoming bitter. I also pray that he forgives himself of this of his past, and give all his troubles to You.
1 Timothy 6:8
A man of Contentment
Lord I pray that no matter where he is in life, that he in content. I pray that even if he is not where he wants to be, he trusts you and knows he's where he needs to be at the moment.
Lord I pray he has a Proverbs 31 wife. Help me become the wife he needs.
