Dear Lord, I pray for my future husband, from head to toe, but today I specifically pray for
ð His Heart – That he will love and trust You with his whole heart. (Deuteronomy 6:5, Proverbs 3:5)
ð His Eyes –That You will keep his eyes from temptation and that he will turn his eyes from sin. (Matthew 6:13, Mark 9:47)
ð His Mind – That he will have the mind of Christ and think as the Holy Spirit would lead him and not the flesh. (1 Corinthians 2:16)
Be with him today and help him to hunger and thirst for You and want to follow Your way in everything… God mold him to be a Godly man in all he does. Help him to have the courage to be a leader and a good example to all those around him. Fill him with love, patience, joy and kindness… help him to be gentle when he needs to be, and forceful as needed.. help him to always be in control of his self in everyway. Help him to remain strong, resisting satan when he tempts him in whatever way. Heal his heart of any brokenness and restore him fully. Help him to be a man of his word and be trustworthy in all things. Keep his body healthy. Help him to be successful in his work. Remind him often of Your priorities in his life.
Help me Father to prepare myself in whatever way I need to for this man you have chosen for me. Help me now to be faithful to him in everyway. Help me to give myself fully and completely to the work You want me to do. Help me not to be anxious for anything. Fill me with the peace of knowing You have this and the rest of my life completely under control and it is not mine to worry over. Help me to be a good steward of all You have given me. To be a good example to those around me and in my workplace. Fill me up fully and completely in You, lacking nothing and wanting for nothing. Help me to resist satan in all he does to pull me away from my focus on You. Help me to thirst and hunger for time spent with You and in Your word…. I pray all this in Your Son’s name. Amen

I came across a blog one day and the chic was talking about writing letters to her future husband. She has been writing letters to him everyday, and on their wedding day she will present him with them! I love the idea, and so desperately wanted to copy.. I, however, am not someone who enjoys writing letters.. especially when there’s no response! I don’t like to journal, because it seems so top notch secret compared to an online blog for some odd reason. I think it is such an act of FAITH. Writing letters to someone you KNOW will eventually receive them! Love that preparation and positioning she’s on 🙂
Maybe, who knows, I will, maybe I won’t.. either way the thought of presenting my future husband with letters that I have written him for the time, however long I would be standing in Faith for my man of God, I’ve waited is pretty cool!
Something you’d consider?
