Praying for Your Future Husband: A Review

This month’s marriage series has been a delight. Married life is one of God’s greatest blessings – far greater than I would have ever imagined. And, it is my prayer that girls yet to enter into this covenant will experience His best as well. We are raising a generation of girls hungry to do marriage right and experience lifelong commitment.

Thanks to fellow Books & Such authors Robin Jones Gunn & Tricia Goyer there is a new book to help them accomplish just that.

"Praying for Your Future Husband" is an intricate weaving of Gunn and Goyer’s personal stories to provide hope to girls in all walks of life. I love that it focuses on Scripturally based Godly prayer for oneself and future spouse. This helps young women rise above presenting an earthly wish list of fleeting characteristics to a Santa-like God. By participating in specific prayers for each chapter focus and answering reflective questions, the reader will draw closer to God, strengthening their personal faith and helping refine the look of a Godly husband.

Reading this book will help females to capture the heart of God, transforming their life and future.

Beyond that, personal character will further develop as they seek lives of contentment and soak in the joy of the gifts God gives in the excitement of everyday life. Radiating fulfillment in Christ will make the reader more attractive to the type of Christian guy she dreams of marrying.

Ground in the Word, this book has a wonderful 52 week prayer guide with exact prayers and a Scripture verse to pray over each week. These prayers will marinate in the depths of one’s heart and create an introspective growing experience for every young woman.

As the mother of three girls, I’m thankful for this resource. Because I’m already praying over their future spouses, I can use this resource to pray in a Godly way. And, in a world often driven by looks rather than the heart, I definitely want it on the shelf for them to read when they are ready for dating relationships.

Don’t pass it by!
