When a single woman asked me how to pray for her future husband, answering her question proved harder than I first thought it would. Still, God calls us to pray about everything. How then should you pray for your future husband? Give thanks for the things you most want Him to change. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus Phil. Thankfully, we don't have to feel it. The verse just says give thanks. And humble requests started outnumbering prideful demands. My pain led me to pray, and giving thanks protected me from bitterness.
Spending time talking with God created an opportunity for Him to soften my heart and shape my desires to conform to His. But there is much work to be done.
We all stumble in many ways James and we all have areas where we need to put sin to death and be conformed to the image of Christ Col. If you submit to His sanctifying process, especially in your pain, His Spirit will transform you 2 Cor. He is able to change the desires of your heart to align with His desire for your life and to satisfy you completely.
Paul E. Jesus neither suppresses his feelings nor lets them master him. He is real. A significant purpose of prayer is our transformation. The more we talk and listen, the more God shapes the conversation. As we grow closer to Him, our desires shift from what we want—what we think we most need—to what He wants, which is what we actually do need. His desires become our desires. David Platt explains this change in his book Radical :. New desires.
New longings. For the first time, we want God. We see our need for him, and we love him. We seek after him, and we find him, and we discover that he is indeed the great reward for our salvation. So we yearn for him. In , a Barna survey showed that there were more never-married Christian men than never-married Christian women. And even if that number were to hold steady, other numbers fluctuate.
One recent report from the Institute for Family Studies found that the marriage rate is dropping for singles under age thirty-five. He sank. But when he fixed his eyes on Christ, he did the unexpected. For many women, getting married would seem just as miraculous.
Praise God that He is unchanging. He still does the unexpected. But we have to do our part. We have to focus our faith and our eyes on Him. As we do, He may change our attitudes, our expectations, our habits, our health—whatever needs changing. He is trustworthy. God is still God. He is able to bring you a husband regardless of your circumstances, if that is His will for you.
His plans for us are always better than the plans we make for ourselves. Who said anything about safe? God is calling us to unshakeable faith regardless of the outcome; faith like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego who said,.
If this be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of your hand, O king. When I first started writing this article, I was thinking in terms of a list of traits to ask God for and specific verses to pray. Each of us is unique, and His work in us differs from person to person. But I also believe you should ask God to show you how to pray, given your story and this particular moment in history. With all the bad news about men, it occurred to me that even before we arrive at praying for men as suitors, we need to pray for them as our brothers in Christ.
Many of the men in our churches are limping spiritually. We should be asking God to raise up a generation of godly men who are not only willing to take on the challenges and calling of being godly husbands and fathers, but also able by His Spirit to do it. We all do. God is able to bring you a husband.
