Prayer For Future Wife

Gracious Father, I ask for patience to wait for the woman of my dreams

Lord, I ask for the strength to be faithful to your word until she arrives. I pray for the grace to shun sexual lust.

I pray that your heart is being set free to love. That all your fears and insecurites are driven away in the face of the Prince of peace, and that peace will rule your heart and mind. I pray you look at every heartache and heartbreak as a means of molding you into the woman who will completely dazzle me.

I pray that you are fully coming alive to all that God made you to be. That you know where your beauty comes from and that you treasure your femininity as a gift from God. I pray that your loveliness comes from a Christ-filled countenance and a heart full of compassion and kindness.

I pray that God grows your ministry. I know that the Good Lord will place a calling on both of our lives to be completed together. With that being said, I know that there is a ministry that you are doing now by yourself. I pray that it brings glory to God. Find yourself in who he wants you to be and serve Him with everything you have in you. Let Him work through you and show you the path he requests you to take. I pray that you stay in his will, and become a great woman of God.

I pray that no matter where you are or what you are doing that God's grace and favor stay by your side. This world is a dangerous place, and I cannot be there to protect you. That is why I pray that our loving Father places His hands of protection on you and leads you safely to me. I pray that God not only protects you physically but also mentally and spiritually. It is my prayer that He will keep your soul and heart from harm; while simultaneously preparing the both of us for each other. I rebuke all acts of evil against you, and that no plans of Satan's shall prosper. I know that God is able to keep you safe. I haven't forgotten that you were His before you were ever mine.

She is clothed with strength and dignity, and laughs at the days to come. She opens her mouth in wisdom; kindly instruction is on her tongue, the proverb reads. When you're praying for your future wife and her holiness, pray specifically for these traits that the author of Scripture writes about.

The world encourages women to be the opposite of the woman written about in Proverbs. Our culture may encourage her to laugh, but only if its at the expense of others. Gossip and jealous remarks are seen as normal in a culture that has lost it's focus on God. Pray that your future wife rejects the lies of today's culture and instead pursues the heart of God.

Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, love is not pompous, it is not inflated. It is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, Saint Paul reminds the Corinthians in his first letter to their community.

It's easy to fall into the trap of thinking that love is that warm, butterfly-like feeling that bubbles up in your stomach. But true love requires sacrifice. Authentic love that wills the good of the other has no room for jealousy or rudeness.

But don't just stop at these two verses of Paul's letter. Spend time reading over the entirety of the thirteenth chapter of First Corinthians. Then, after you're finished reading, replace your name for every time Paul writes love. Can you say that you are patient, kind, selfless, humble, kind, and slow to anger? Reading through Scripture in this way can reveal areas of your life that you can continue to surrender over to the Lord.
