PRAYING FOR MY FUTURE SPOUSE
WAITING CAN BE TOUGH
Invite God to use the time spent waiting to bring Him glory. When we (Chuck and Ashley) were dating, we each used our singleness to prepare for marriage in unique ways. Chuck wrote letters to his future wife. Ashley wrote questions she would ask her future date to ensure that he was a good fit for her. Both of these activities developed through prayer and still strengthens our marriage today.
We have kept the prayer prompts short because we want your focus to be connecting with God about your future spouse.
Ask God to comfort your future spouse in their waiting, filling him or her with satisfaction and delight in the Lord. Pray that God will deepen your future spouse’s love for and commitment to Jesus.
PRAY FOR THEIR WISDOM
Pray for your future spouse to gain wisdom. Ask God to help him or her make Godly choices regarding friendships, work, and play.
PRAY THAT THEY RESIST TEMPTATION
Ask God to help your future spouse resist the temptation to pursue physical pleasures and wait for you.
1 Corinthians 6:18-20
PRAY THAT THEY'RE FORGIVING
Pray that God will help your future spouse be forgiving, inviting the Spirit to guide them toward healthy communication, healing, and love.
PRAY FOR FINANCIAL BLESSING
Pray for financial blessings for your future spouse. Ask God to fill him or her with guidance and wisdom regarding tithing, managing money, and generously caring for others. Ask the Lord to put Godly examples around him or her to build healthy habits that will strengthen your relationship in future decades.
PRAY FOR FRIENDLINESS
Ask God to help your future spouse be a good friend, prompting him or her to be a good communicator, perceiving, and addressing the needs of others. Pray that God will help him or her find and build a Godly community.
PRAY FOR THEIR LEADERSHIP
Ask God to increase your future spouse’s leadership ability. Pray that God will make him or her a Godly leader in and outside of the home.
