Lord, I know that You are preparing me in so many ways - for my calling & the rest of my life. I know, too, You are prepping my heart for this sacred union of marriage. I want to take a minute today to pray specifically not just for myself to be open and moving in cooperation with this good work You're doing in me, but also for the man You have chosen and are preparing for me.
I pray You will draw him near to You and help him to embrace You as his ultimate priority - that ...he would cast off this world in pursuit of You and Your presence in his daily life. I pray You would encourage him to remain faithful and diligent to do the good work You've called him to & remind him that his work will be rewarded in You.
Guide our courtship and protect us not just from this world, but guard us also from our own desires so we may remain reserved in purity by Your grace until the blessed day we are united in marriage under God.
Lord, be our Leader. Wherever he is, this man You are making ready for me, uphold him by Your mighty right hand. Please remind him in whispers to his heart You are preparing someone for him also that he can pray for me.
All the while, Lord, continue to sustain me now and forever in my pursuit of You as the one true Lover of my soul.
By Your unfailing grace I pray, preserve us both, one for the other, for Your name's sake and for all the good You have set and prepared for us to accomplish together in You. Hear my words and bless this prayer, sweet Jesus. Amen. ❤
