Ya’ll know I’ve been in this singleness season for quite some time but no one is counting *coughs 6 years. I’ve gone through my share of seasons: happiness, contentment, impatience, joy, learning, stretching, healing, anger, and disappointment. The one practice that I’ve started to implement is praying intentionally for my husband. Although I don’t know who he is yet , I’ve witnessed my prayers increase my faith in the wait. The more I pray for him, the more God has revealed to me. I know the wait can be frustrating but it’s inevitable; what you do while you wait is key. Here’s how I’m praying for my future husband:
Wealth and Divine Resources: Dear God, thank you for my future husband. Thank you for giving him the resources and wisdom to obtain wealth. Thank you for downloading divine dreams and vision in him and giving him the resources to manifest them. Thank you for giving him the knowledge and discipline to be a great steward over his wealth. Your word says that you give us wisdom to get wealth. Thank you for the expansive wealth of visions that he has and the faith, endurance, and will-power to carry it out. I pray, that he will be the head and not the tail, above and never beneath, the lender and not the borrower; just as your word says. May he not be lazy or prideful in work but rather be fueled with Godly ambition. May he work unto man as he works unto you. You say in your word that our gifts make room for us and puts us before great men; I pray this for my husband. May he be respected in all of the rooms he enters in and the tables he sits at. Thank you for molding my husband into a man of wealth and godly success.
Creativity: Lord, I pray that my husband has a mind of endless creativity. I pray that you give him creative ideas and endeavors. I pray that he is empowered and enriched with the same creativity that caused this world into being. May he never run out of ideas and may his ideas bring wealth and success to our future family. I pray that he will operate with boldness and faith on everything idea you download in him. I pray, that you are already lining up the resources for him. Thank you for every spiritual and natural gift you‘ve given him that he will use to glorify you.
Leadership: As you are the head of the husband may he be the head of our home. May he lead our home in love and maintain an atmosphere of peace. Give him the strength to bridle his tongue. May he be slow to anger and rage; give him the temperament of your son Jesus Christ. May he live a life that commands honor and respect. May he been known as a leader and staple in his community. Thank you Lord, for giving him boldness in the face of leadership. I pray that he is humbly confident and recognizes that everything he needs comes from you.
Integrity: Lord God, I pray that you groom my husband to have integrity. May his actions and his words align. I pray that he carries a reputation that glorifies and brings honor to your name. May the way he lives his life draw others to you. I pray that he is the salt and light of this world. May he be honest in all of his business deals and endeavors. I come against desires to be deceitful, dishonest, and malicious in all matters of business. Surround him with other men of integrity that will hold him to a Godly standard.
A Heart After God’s: Dear God, I pray that my husband has an intimate relationship with you. May he know and acknowledge you as His God, His Father, His Help, His Counselor, His Resource, and His Comforter. Fill His heart with the things that make him chase after you. I pray that you will give him a renewed mind and heart. I pray that his desires are to do your will. May he not be motivated by the ways of this world but desires only to please you. May his heart break at the things that break your heart. May he have a heart to give, to love, and to serve your children cheerfully, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
