Praying for A Husband: My Story
Please don’t think too horribly about me, but before I got married to my husband, my top prayer request was always to find a husband. I have dozens of diaries and journals that are full of prayers to God for a future husband. It was hard for me to understand God’s timing!
When I first met my husband, dated him, and married him, I was challenged in life by an autoimmune disorder. My disability prevented me from thinking completely straight. Once I was able to see things clearly, boy, how my life changed! I put God first for a change!!
When God is leading your life, it’s easy to count your blessings and to see where you were once suffering. You can then see how God used the trials in your life to fill you with blessings beyond your wildest dreams! At least, that is how my timeline went with my husband!
I can now see how during my times of doubt and despair, God always had my back! He was there even when I did not feel His presence. If you wonder where your future husband is, pray about it and allow God to do His handiwork in your life. You’ll be thankful that you did that!
My husband and I have been together now for a decade! We’ve faced many ups and downs in life, but through it all, we never had any doubts that God brought us together for a reason. I encourage you to trust God’s timing, not yours, when it comes to a future mate!
But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. – Isaiah 40:31 (ESV)

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways, submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight. – Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)
Understand what you want in a life partner through prayer.
When I changed my dating strategy from dating the one on my path to looking for certain Biblical traits in another, my love life changed dramatically!! I learned more about myself, what I needed in another person, and gained a greater chance of finding a compatible mate.

Gain peace and patience by relying on God while you wait for Mr. Right.
In this world, when we want something, we usually do not want to wait for it, as our preferences change often! With Amazon delivering at such a fast pace, it’s easy to build impatience. We need to head in the opposite direction! Learn to have patience when it comes to Mr. Right!
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” – Isaiah 30:21 (NIV)
Learn to let go of the past and focus on the future.
It’s easy to get hung up on all the mistakes you have made in the past. If your past is so hairy that you are having trouble moving forward, you ought to consider a self-help program like Celebrate Recovery, which can help you get past your hurts, habits, and hang-ups!
Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. – Ephesians 4:31-32 (ESV)
Reduce your anxiety about finding a future husband.
Prayer can reduce stress and anxiety. If you are unaware of all of the benefits of prayer, it is strongly advised that you do a little research! Prayer is VERY beneficial and will help you worry less about finding a soulmate and more about having a strong relationship with God!
