Dear God, I Pray For This Man I Love

Site Logo

It was a total God thing and I have told it to many single friends to encourage them. But, I was not always a believer in praying specifically for the husband I wanted or even for the husband God wanted for me. Dear friends…. I was very, VERY wrong.

That was how I felt every single time I heard someone say that they prayed for their now-husband. I attended a Christian university so I heard things like this on a regular basis. I knew girls who were praying every day for the man that they wanted to meet and marry. And even until the day I graduated I was nothing short of skeptical and quite honestly annoyed with the whole idea.

It was actually more like her saying that if I went outside in the cold with wet hair I would catch a cold…yes it could happen…but I would likely have to be outside, in the perfectly cold temperature and stay out there quite some time.

Basically, it was possible, but the timing and circumstance had to be just right. Before I began praying for my husband I had pretty much hit rock bottom in the relationship realm. I was living alone in a new town, just moved into my first apartment on my own, and though I was excited about this new chapter of life and my first post-grad job…I felt so lonely.

My family and friends were far away and my heart had been broken about 3 times that year so men were the very last thing on my list of priorities by that November. But one night, alone in my apartment and at the end of my loneliness rope I broke down and…. I literally screamed at God! Yes…I screamed out loud at the creator of the universe because I blamed Him for my loneliness.

Though I was the one refusing to persevere and pray for a future husband, I blamed Him. So I yelled at God for a little while; some audibly, some quietly in my heart. I asked questions and begged and pretty much had a complete and total breakdown. I remember sitting on my floor, my head in a chair, and realizing how crazy I must look in that moment.

And then I felt God nudging my heart and suddenly it was His turn to speak. And then I cried. A lot. Because He was so right. That night began the remarkably short prayer journey to meeting my husband. I dried my tears, after uttering my many regrets and apologies to the Lord, and reached for my prayer journal. And there, where I wrote all my longings and ponderings and prayers and frustrations, I made a list. A fun fact about me? I have been a crazy organized person from birth and lists are the only way I function.

But this list was perhaps the most important I had ever made. I made a list of all the things I wanted in a husband. And I started praying over that list. That was right after Thanksgiving and by December 13th that year, I met David.

So what was on my list? Well, I prayed for things I knew I needed in a partner and then I prayed for things I simply wanted…. I wrote it all down and promised myself that if the person I met did not have everything on the list that I would know he was not the one God wanted for me.

I asked for someone who followed Christ so faithfully that I would be able to see Him shining through.

I asked for brown eyes. I prayed for someone who enjoyed fitness because I need accountability in that area. I asked for someone who worked in a similar field as I did and could fully support my career. I listed glasses as an added bonus because I love a man in glasses. I prayed for someone who would love me for everything I am and everything I am not. I asked that He would be able to handle all of my crazy emotions and be able to understand my very difficult struggle with body image and food.

I think on some level I made the list in hopes that it would keep me from any more broken hearts because no man could possibly meet every requirement on my list. Yet again…. I was wrong. I was sure I was crazy for making that list. So I was blown away when I met David that December night. The first thing I noticed about him? The light that shown out of him. The light of Christ that I prayed for. By the end of the night I had checked almost everything off of my list.

He was a runner, worked in home restoration, and had 5 sisters so he was well equipped to handle my emotional break downs and body image issues. The only thing missing was the glasses. Just to show us what He can do. Just to reveal to our doubting hearts what a personal God He is. But the same God I screamed at that night for not getting my way is the same one who placed His hand on my life and changed the course of my story with a tall, brown-eyed boy.

So, I tell you all of that to say that you can have it too! You can pray and get the husband that you want and need. Yes, I believe God intends for certain people to be together and that He can make it happen no matter what. But, I also believe that God greatly blesses those that are fervent in prayer and faithful and that He will write their stories with a little extra magic. Be Faithful. And He will give you everything good that your heart desires. Does He have a plan of His own?

But if you truly desire what is good then you will also desire what He has for you. And when your wants align with what God wants for you…amazing things will happen! And it may take time. Delay does not equal Refusal. He taught David patience and how to trust in Him. He taught me about the power of prayer and believing that God can do amazing things.

Maybe you have been doubting or maybe you have given up or maybe you have prayed for what seems like forever. Dear, sweet friend…there is a lesson in that! Our Creator uses every situation He can to teach us more about Himself and to better prepare us for His calling on our life.

Stay faithful! He will come through for you in His time. Maybe some of you feel like your mom is saying the whole frozen face thing all over again as you read this. If that is the case, may I just invite you and challenge you to seek God and His plan in a new way. Maybe that means you make a list of your own. Maybe you commit to praying for one full hour every day. Whatever it might be, just try it.

You will be amazed by what He can do with even the smallest amount of faith Matt. One very important part of this story that I beg you not to miss is the final part of my prayer that night and every night that followed. I prayed over that list and did my best to believe that God would make it happen.

I prayed that He would make me the person and wife I needed to be for whoever my husband would be. But I also knew that in that moment of breaking down and being lonelier than I ever had before that He knew exactly how I felt. He knew my loneliness on a whole different level and every ache in my heart felt just as real to Him as it did to me. So, friend, whatever the longing of your heart is. Whatever your dream is. Whatever it is in your life that you would spend hours and days and weeks praying over…DO IT.

Let God show you what He can do. Come to a place of knowing that being in love with Him, that having forever with Him, is all the love story you will ever need. There was a link to this website underneath a picture which lead me to this page..

I was with someone who turned out to be worse than a nightmare and lived out my biggest fears.. God told me to let him go.. I was then told by my aunt that God never goes back on his promise and that I need to start believing again. Anywho here I am on this page and in this moment I feel so inspired..

Your blog has just confirmed to start where I am. I have subscribed and will be reading these daily to remind myself of why I left an emotionally abusive relationship and that if you can do it so can I. God bless you.

Maybe God Is Answering Your Prayers

The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. Note from Sharon: I know that devotions on marriage are difficult for many who are not married and perhaps would like to be.

In the scope of human history nothing stands out like warfare. One nation trying to impose its ideology, political system, or religious beliefs on another. General George Patton said, next to war, all other forms of human endeavor pale in insignificance.

An Open Letter To The Guy Who I Have Prayed For

If you are faithful to God, you are probably waiting for that guy whom the heaven has sent for you. Are there divine clues that can guide women in identifying the right man for them? Having the wrong partner in your relationship is not something to be taken lightly. It can break your heart, and worse, it can ruin your life, your future and even the people who are relying on you. Love is a journey. And just like any other journeys, you have to choose the right path to achieve happiness and success, not only for yourself and the one you love, but also for the relationship you and your partner have. To guide you in recognizing the man sent by God for you, here are some signs from the Bible that you should watch out for. He speaks the words of God. The man that comes from God speaks the words of God.

Prayer for him to feel the same way about me

Staying on the same page is the hope and longing that maybe they will come back, maybe things will turn out differently, maybe they will change their minds. The truth is, by continuing to stay there we miss out on the stories around us that have the potential to be as life changing as the ones we experienced. Sometimes God brings people into our lives and just like that, similar to a wind pushing them from behind, God briskly takes them away. The process is not completely dependent on you, however. It can be easy to accept all the responsibility for your healing so that you have an excuse to wallow in self-pity for however long you want.

I still remember my very first relationship and breakup, I was 19 and my boyfriend of 9 months broke up with me.

God is a gentleman. If you insist, He will back off and let you do things your way. Most of the time when we do that, though, we end up settling for second best. He is not trying to hold you back.

How I Prayed for My Love Story

Sometimes I look at you and pinch myself. Love is so beautiful. I spent so many months searching, so many years, even, thinking that I was somehow behind the rest of the world. That I was somehow lacking, somehow inefficient, incapable of finding love.

I can still vividly remember the times when I prayed to God, I asked him to give me a man who can truly love and take me as I am, someone who will always be there to motivate me, encourage me, support me, and cheer me up to strive for the best. Someone who can be a buddy, protector, and a lover at the same time. And then I met you, and all of a sudden you came into my life. Indeed, God gave me you. He gave me someone irreplaceable.

18 Signs He’s the One Sent by God for You

D ear God, I pray for these hands that hold me, for these eyes that share nothing but truth. I pray for the smile that stretches across his imperfect face and the way that simple expression can make my heart warm unconsciously—and how beautiful love is in the way it can do that. God, I pray for his wisdom and strength, that in each of the days he faces, he knows he is loved, cared for, and never alone. When his mind drifts away from confidence and into despair, I ask that you fill him. I ask that you guide him.

Ever wondered how to know if God wants you to be with someone? If there is one thing I've learned in a decade of dating, it's that you should never your heart you know that God is trying to end your relationship then I want you to pray for.

I wish he would love me. Please bring him back to me and get him to talk to me again. Please lord get me and Nery back together, and please get him to love me and think about me the way I think about him and love him. Please hear my preyer.
