I pray for you. Not one of those desperate cries out to God begging Him to bring me a man. As content as I am, the Lord placed it on my heart to desire becoming your wife some day. As much as I can say it is not my season, I cannot control God’s plans for me when He says it’s time. So no, I do not rush His plans. I am not desperate for you nor do I go out looking for love. In Song of Solomon 3:5, it says to not stir up or awaken love until it pleases. When I say I pray for you, I pray for your life.
First and foremost, I pray that you are saved. I mean SAVED. I am not able to deal with another man that does not love God with all of his heart and have not accepted Christ as his Lord and savior. I pray that your actions speak louder than your words. I also prayed that your heart is pure for out of an abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. I know you come from God, so I trust Him because he know the desires of our hearts.
I study the armor of God because not only am I fighting for myself and my family, but I am also fighting for you and our future family. I pray that God gives you the strength to endure hard times and rejoice in times of your sufferings. I pray that He leads you down that righteous path. I know how discouraging it can be sometimes, so I pray for your patience and obedience. Remember that you are a warrior! In Galatians 6:9, it says:
And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
I pray for courage, humbleness, and peace. I pray you will fight temptation and you turn to God when you are weak. I also pray that God softens your heart and developes your character during this journey. I pray for wisdom and to be surrounded by love as well.
I also write to you and God. I write about my day, how I feel, and how it feels as if I already know you. I write down my prayers including the ones for you and our future. I talk to God about you and I pray that you lead me closer to Him on a new level. I pray that you are prepared to see me at my worst and can still love me no matter what.
I pray that when we meet, we are able to respect each other’s boundaries. I pray that we are able to laugh with each other because I love to smile and make others laugh because I am very goofy. I cannot wait for the day when we are able to glorify God together. I love serving and worshipping. I pray for the day we will study the word of God together and serve together not only in our church but everywhere we go. I also hope that you don’t mind seeing my random concerts as I praise dance and leap around the house when I play worship music.
I wait. Honoring my body and allowing the Lord to prepare me for you as He prepares you for me. I spend so much time and became rooted as well as focused on God. I pray that I will be able to love you the way He loves us.
You won’t be perfect. You won’t be everything on my list of qualities I look for. I pray that the qualities I look for in you are not only of God, but qualities within me as well. I pray that we accept that God will not just give us what we want, but what we need. I study the Proverbs 31 woman and the roles of the Titus 2 woman. I pray that you are able to distinguish counterfeits and guard your heart from those who will only hurt you.
I learned a lot about obedience and submission as I serve God. I pray that I will be able to face every challenge as I submit onto you the way I submit onto God. For you will be my leader, so I pray I am able to respect your decisions as the Holy Spirit leads you. The Holy Spirit told me you were praying for me. I thank you for loving me already. So I will continue to pray not just now, not just when we meet, but for the rest of our lives.
See you soon.
