I've been in the habit, for some time now, praying for my future husband! I'd been told to do this years ago, but for some reason, it always never came to be. After recently joining a group challenge of "praying for my beloved", its been...the most special part of my prayer life.
I realized that, short and simple, its all about TRUST. I'm trusting God that he will bring me my future husband in His timing.
"He has made everything beautiful in its time" Ecclesiastes 3:11a
"For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven" Ecclesiastes 3:1
Putting my complete trust in the Lord, leaving all my cares and desires in His hands, has brought the most beautiful contentment in the area of marriage that I've ever felt.
"Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart" Psalm 37:4
Just taking a few moments of prayer has strengthened a different cord, and its almost as if I can feel him praying for me as well.
For those who are praying for your future beloveds as well, when did you start? Is your prayer life different? If you've met and married your beloved whom you prayed for, I'd love to hear about it! Please feel free to leave any comments you may have on this subject! :)
