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!
