I was talking to my cousin a while ago, and we started talking about future spouses, our concerns, fears, challenges etc. and she told me about a relative who decided to pray very specific prayers about her future spouse.
So I was thinking what specific things can I pray for?
The first thing that popped to my mind was dealing with disagreements.
Different roads sometimes lead to the same castle.
— George R.R. Martin
I pray that my future spouse and I can resolve disagreements well. That we will not be immature, but we will seek first to hear before being heard. I pray that when there are disagreements and one person is being irrational, the other person will be mature enough to understand that the person being irrational is coming from a place of hurt, and will be kind enough to speak gently. I pray that when disagreements lead to hurt, that the two of us will be quick to apologize and quick to forgive. I pray that no matter what we do, we will remember that we love each other and we’re both on the same side. And most importantly I pray that we will give our hurts and disagreements to God.
How about you? What specific thing would you pray about for your future spouse.
I would like to hear from you: Talk to me.
