Praying For You by Mandisa

One of the greatest ways you can love your future mate, whether you know him or not, is to pray for Him.  God can do more for Him in your absence than you may realize!  No amount of dreaming and wishing could impact his life – and yours – than including God’s influence through prayer.

I am one who knows this by experience.  In the winter of 2009, God led me to pray for my husband, three years before we ever met.  Having no idea what he looked like or where he lived, I by faith lifted him up to God.  I prayed until I felt a release to stop.

When I finally met him and we were engaged, I asked him where he was and what he was doing in 2009.  His face serious, he admitted that it wasn’t a good year for him.  He wasn’t even communicating with his family, whose relationships were very close.

Did I hear from God that day He told me to pray for Michael?  Absolutely!  I am confident that if I had not obeyed and prayed that day, we may not be married today.

The devil doesn’t want God’s plans to be fulfilled in your life.  He will send frustrations to both you and your future spouse to hinder you from meeting.  He only wins if you are overcome by frustration, discouragement, and pity parties.  But when you rise up and allow God to work through your prayers, great things happen!

All Things Beautiful

In asking you to trust Him entirely, God is asking you to trust His ability to give you the best. He has promised that He will not withhold any good thing from you (Psalm 84:11).  However, you’ve got to trust that His heart is to lead you to that best in His timing.  That’s when a dream fulfilled is given the chance to become beautiful!

He has made everything beautiful in its time . . . (Ecclesiastes 3:1a)

Be You

By focusing on the inside – the real you – you won’t need to feel pressured to impress a man when you already have the attributes he’s looking for.  Just be yourself.  God is defining who you are.  Don’t let any man change that.  Instead, focus on writing your song – the song of your life – by centering your lyrics and melody around the godliness that makes you who you are.
