How To Pray For My Future Husband
First, remember that God is omnipresent, which means he is always present and not restrained by time. So he already knows if you will get married and to whom you will marry. This should give you confidence to come to Him as you pray for your future husband.
Second, God calls us to pray. He wants to hear from you. So just begin talking to God. Prayer is simply a conversation with God. However, remember who God is and come to him in reverence and a humble heart. He longs to have a relationship with you but it is important we do that in a way that honors Him.
Third, pray for your husband out of scripture, which means you need to open your Bible and start reading God’s word. This will be so good for your relationship with God because this is how He speaks to us. It will also help you pray for your husband because you are no longer just praying what you would like (tall, dark and handsome, or whatever you may like). You begin to pray for what God wants in your future husband.
You might pray that he loves God. This is one of the most important things that you can pray for because if he loves God then all of the following prayers will follow in your future husband’s life.
If you are getting into God’s word more, you will begin to love God’s word and want a husband that does too. So begin to pray that your husband will love God’s word. Also pray that he will not drift from God, but that he will become close to God.
You could pray that he loves you well. This is not a prayer for him to be romantic but rather look at what scripture says about how a husband should love a wife (Ephesians 5:25) and pray that he would have these qualities.
Other prayers you could pray for are his character traits such as his desire to be pure, lead well, and love others.
It doesn’t have to be a laid-out prayer, and it doesn’t have to be every day, but simply just start praying, getting into God’s word, and trusting God already has a great plan for you, you can rest in that.
As your trust in God becomes more strong, your faith will deepen and increase. You can trust that though His life you will find your future husband and we pray he reflects this light as you do!
