a prayer for my future husband

Lord God, your Word declares that if I delight myself in you—if I enjoy and seek your pleasure above mine—you'll give me the desires of my heart (Psalm 37:4). Desiring a husband is neither evil nor selfish because marriage is honorable (Hebrews 13:4). At the beginning of creation, you proclaimed, "It is not good that man should be alone" and then you created Eve to be a suitable partner for Adam (Genesis 2:18). In the name of Jesus, I ask that you would protect the husband—a suitable partner—you have chosen for me. Because the covenant of marriage is sacred (Mark 10:9), I ask for a man of God. Please give me a husband whose love for me is only outmatched by his love for you; a man who will cherish me and build me up (Proverbs 31:28); a man who will honor me (I Peter 3:7) and our marriage vows; a man who will be a good father and provider; a man whom I will be attracted to physically, emotionally, and spiritually; a man who will love me as Christ loved the church (Ephesians 5:25). Keep me from attaching myself to another man out of desperation. I will not settle for a relationship that's second best, convenient, or one that feeds my insecurities. Guard my purity and give me the patience to wait. And when I meet him, confirm to me that he is the one. Release from me the baggage of past relationships, and prepare me for the man You have chosen to be my husband. Free me from any hindrances to a healthy and godly marriage: insecurities, habitual sins, selfishness, and emotional hurts. Dispel my unrealistic expectations that set me up for disappointment. I place my trust in you rather than my partner. In this period of waiting, I will look to you alone to be my companion and best friend. You are the one who redeems my life from the pit, who crowns me with love and compassion, who satisfies my desires with good things (Psalm 103:4-5). I will not be anxious, but as I present my requests to you, flood me with the peace that surpasses all understanding so my heart and my mind are guarded in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6,7). In this request, I commit myself to trust you and do good, to dwell in the land and feed on your faithfulness. I commit my way to you and trust that you will bring it to pass (Psalm 37:35). Amen

Praise God for you beautiful women as I read this blog my tears just streamed down my face my recent breakup with my boyfriend and my divorce. Thinking I was alone everything I have felt all these years and the broken, shattered heart and life of a fallen apart marriage of abuse and the process of the healing to begin and end hurts so much. I never knew there was so many women out there that wait for a husband and in the process love and depend on God. I cant help but cry and think I am not alone.

The patience for me is the hardest part. 19 Months ago I decided to pray and wait for my husband. My patience is running low and the biological clock is ticking am trying soo hard to keep the faith. Please include me in your prayers as I shall include you all in mine.

I also googled "prayer for a future husband" and cane across this blog. I am especially alone now. I have been praying for my husband for years. This past week has been the most loneliest and also has been spent questioning when and why me. I was in a good 4 year relationship that ended followed by a two year relationship that felt so right and met him while i was praying for someone and focusing on God. It just ended recently, i was hurt and my thoughts of him being my husband ended from under my feet. I have been feeling so discouraged until church this sunday and this blog to show me there are others like me. Thank u for this postin this prayer

My god, I know that you are the ultimate matchmaker. You brought Rebeka to Issac , Ruth to Boaz, Abraham and Sarah and countless other couples together. Teach me to wait upon you lord.Teach me to continue serving you while I wait. Bless me and my other single sisters out there with the man you designed and prepared just for us.

I have to give this miraculous testimony, which is so unbelievable until now. I had a problem with my Ex husband 2years ago, which lead to our break up. when he broke up with me, I was not myself again, i felt so empty inside me, my love and financial situation became worst, until a close friend of mine lucy told me about a spell caster who helped her in the same problem too his name is Dr Ekaka. I email ekakaspelltemple@yahoo.com the spell caster and i told him my problem and i did what he asked of me, to cut the long story short. Before i knew what was happening my husband gave me a call and told me that he was coming back to me in just 2days and was so happy to have him back to me. We have two kids together and we are happy with ourselves. Thanks to Dr Ekaka for saving my relationship and for also saving others own too. continue your good work, If you are interested to contact him and testify this blessings like me, the great spell caster email address is ekakaspelltemple@yahoo.com you are the best among all the spell caster online I hope you see my testimonies and also pray for my family too
