    Book Review: 31 Prayers for My Future Husband

    Thursday, June 27, 2019

    I will admit: this book creates controversy in my soul. I am not promised by God that I will be married, so am I wasting my prayers? I really can’t know this. Does this create longings in my soul that will be unsatisfied? If I allow it. Am I creating an “ideal man” in my mind that will never be attained by a mere mortal? The truth is, no man - except Jesus - will perfectly live up to the prayers that I am praying.  

    As I wrestled through whether or not to buy this (I bought it when there was no boyfriend in sight), I decided to at least give it a shot. I am so glad I did. As I am praying for areas in my future husband’s life (currently I am praying these prayers specific to the man I am dating since we are dating with the intention of marriage), I am seeing areas that need to be prayed over in my own life. I am praying for the protection of his mind, but what am I doing to protect my own mind? How can I be praying for him to stay out of debt when I keep spending outside of my clothing boundaries for the month? I ask God to help him resist temptation, but am I actively saying no to the fiery darts in my own life?

    Yes, this book has pushed me to pray more faithfully for my future husband. Even more so though, it has pushed me to examine my life and pray for these areas in my own walk - not for the purpose of becoming more godly in order for a man to want to marry me but so that I will ultimately glorify God and reflect Jesus Christ. 

    Set up like a prayer journal, 31 Prayers for My Future Husband has thirty-one different areas (from health to heart to humility) to pray over. Each area starts with a written out prayer and then includes two blank pages for you to write your own personalized prayer. What I did was look up verses that dealt with, say purity, and then I wove them into my prayers so that it was saturated with Truth and purpose. Now, I pray for these areas in my future husband’s life - if it is the Lord’s will - and in my own life.
