3 Things Every Woman Should Pray For Her Future Husband
As a single Christian woman who desires marriage, I can say hands down that nothing was more frustrating to me than getting bad advice from people who didn’t understand my situation.
- “Stop wanting marriage and it will come to you”.
- “Just be happy God gave you the gift of singleness”.
- “Ask God for your Boaz”.
I’m sorry, but none of these has scriptural justification in every situation. David said delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.
Paul said if you’re burning – it’s best for you to get married. And Ruth didn’t pray for “a Boaz”. She met Boaz out working trying to survive.
And anyways – every single Christian woman is not a Ruth! Some are Deborah’s. Others are Lydia’s or Hannah’s.
Telling someone to pray for something that God may not have in mind for them… bad advice.
But I’ve digressed. Many godly, well-meaning friends and family members really do want to see you happy, but they don’t really understand you or your situation.
Others caught amnesia and forgot all about the nights they spent laid out on the floor praying and begging God to “please let me get married before the Rapture!”
To the other extreme, people who aren’t thinking about living God’s way will give you advice that might get you married. But if you have fellowship with God, the method could cost you peace and could distance you from God.
So what does a single Christian woman do when she desires marriage and feels like she’s not making any progress towards that goal?
I’m still single, but what I’m offering my fellow single sisters in Christ is counsel that I know works.
The best thing you can do to not only prepare for marriage but to speak it into existence – so to speak – is to pray for your future husband.
The one who just needs to find you so you can date, court, and then get married – in God’s way and in God’s timing.
